It's funny because many British people like her, particularly Daily Mail readers, are so hypocritical when it comes to emigration. They complain when people move here, and yet would expect respect themselves when moving abroad? Sure, we take in too many immigrants than we can handle, but to attack them personally solely because they moved here is wrong. 'Attack' the government for poor management of immigration, attack those who move here and abuse the system, and attack the Brits who sit around out of work and expect to be spoon-fed benefits by the government. The latter in particular are the main problem with this country currently, not immigrants.

I think it's fair to say, that if you just cannot get along with the controls for a game, you won't enjoy it and will have a negative view of it. It would ruin your experience of said game. What he could have chosen to have done, was to put down the controller and simply say, "I don't feel I can review this game fairly because I cannot get used to the controls". And let somebody else do it. This is not a classic case of learning button layouts, this is a radical control overhaul and for most people, it's the first 'proper' game to use such a system. But the plus side I suppose we can see that there are going to be people out there who don't get along with the heavy reliance on Motion+, and maybe it's right that this group of people is represented somehow in a media review. What seems to be certain overall having read countless reviews, is that this is a very high scoring game overall, and we'll love it if we get along with the controls (which is likely, given the overall feedback) and enjoy a good old 3D Zelda experience.

Maybe I'm weird but my feet have never had any kind of smell. They are as odourless as my hands. Part of me is creeped out by this topic, another part makes me feel like I'm missing out on something.

Luckily I've stockpiled porn just in case of something exactly like this.

In all seriousness though this is an unwise move. In addition to possibly creating awkward situations for those who wish to view porn, I can forsee non-porn and non-explicit websites falling foul, and creating even more awkward situations where you have to opt in to view a normal website which was falsely blocked. Most people I know, including myself, have either BT or Virgin so it's going to affect basically everyone.

Worth noting however that there may well be easier ways to 'enable porn' than phoning them up, but it's still awkward when people in the household will be questioning who ticked the porn box ;)

I only ever briefly open my eyes, if at all. And not wide open because that would be kinda creepy.

[QUOTE="Lto_thaG"] Oh,now I get.Like when you speak to your GPS?Lto_thaG

No, you just speak into the phone and it will write out the text message for you.

Does that work properly?

It works for me reasonably well, but makes a total mess of it sometimes. Google Voice search is almost flawless now, I can say "top selling games consoles of all time wiki" and it will enter all of that and search without error for example. I remember voice-to-text in Windows Vista, where I had to talk in an American accent. Otherwise it would be total nonsense.

I used to use Swype on my old phone; worked quite well because I'm useless at touchscreen typing due to small 'keys', but I have no choice with my current phone, so my next one will probably have a sliding keyboard. My upgrade isn't until midway through 2012 though so there will be plenty out around then; the alternative is a larger screen. My current phone is 3.7", whereas these 4.3" phones seem to be far better for typing.

[QUOTE="pooyanh"][QUOTE="cjek"]Well I played Little Big Planet today, and I must say that I found it far more suited to a handheld experience than a home console one. I never could get into it on PS3, but it seems great to just pick up and play a few levels in quick succession. Sadly I managed to break the console after about 4 minutes of play; one of only 13 Vita's in the UK. It kinda.. shut down and they couldn't turn it back on. In the time I had left she did let me take a photo or two though ;):

Is that EG Expo?

It was. There was a bit of a queue, and we were given a random ticket which decided which game we played. Most of them were Uncharted, but some people got LBP, Little Deviants or Wipeout. Overall I was pleasantly surprised by how well the whole thing felt, but she said the console design may in fact change (possibly making the rear touch panel more obvious to users; I found it very difficult to reach and use personally, I guess it would take some getting used to).
