    Seeing as you proved so bloody useless last weekend I thought I would use my Lemsip fuelled days of wastefullness to find a new obscure paragraph.

    Answer at some point tomorrow.

    "George Clooney may blame himself for the demise of the movie franchise, but the truth is the rot set in a long time before ER-boy got his buttocks into the moulded rubber suit. The problem began when someone in Hollywoodland fell under the assumption that vacant pretty boy Val Kilmer was capable of producing the tortured emotional range that characterised the Keaton-era crimefighter. No-one does pent-up violent mental instability as well as Keaton, and Kilmer manages the demanding role about as well as a boiled potato on a damp piece of string. So with one fell Schumacher-led coup (that's Joel, not Michael), a character rich in eminently challenging twisted psychosis is rendered as shallow as the most banal of Schwarzenegger action 'heroes'."

    Answer at some point tomorrow. And remember, no cheating!

    Well you may think that, but obviously PC Zone is thinking on a higher wavelength than the rest of us.

    I won't take part this time, as I've read this online somewhere recently. And no Errol, it's not Batman...

    edit: ups, sam jumped the queue :-)

    Key words: Fucked up, shallow, action.

    Max Payne?

    Btw, is it me or has EG has never suffered so much from a single game like it suffers from GTA:VC? Hardly anyone posting all day. Or is it always that quiet at the week-ends? Rarely here Saturday/Sunday myself.

    For those still interested it was the second most controversial game of the month, Hitman 2.

    In fact the second paragraph bumbles on about Batman and Batman Forever.

    What this sort of waffle means to me is that the so-called games journalists are being a little bit smug, too clever, and have nothing to say. On one level I can sympathise as many games have no content worth a serious comment, and that sort of overblown irrlevance is required to make an article anywhere near interesting, although that is debateable.

    I don't know about sam but I'm a subscriber. I think it's a pretty decent read and considering its PC only competitors it's a hell of a lot better than them in my opinion.

    The fact is there isn't that much to say about the majority of games. Most games are tired retreads of earlier formulas so you may as well have some fun. I like the fact they rip the piss out of mediocre games they're usually much more interesting to read than the merely average.
