Don't think I've been posting enough recently? Well I've got some bad news for you. In a double espresso induced buying frenzy I pre-ordered a new slim-line PS2
and a copy of GT4
(actual screenshot above - *drool*) this morning. Predicted delivery date is at the end of Feb so I suggest you catch me before then as I'll have entered 'career mode' shortly afterwards and be unavailable until May at the earliest. It's been nice knowing you all :o)

There are a few useful web sites I use when travelling around the UK like the accessible train timetable
or the route planning facility at multimap
, but Transport Direct
was a new one on me and a real eye opener.
It brings together information from both public and private travel operators and local/national government. Pump in a start point and a destination and it'll give you a comparison of all the different methods of travel between the two car/train/bus/whatever, giving times, and in the case of public transport options, how you'll need to combine walking, buses and trains to get from door to door.
I tried it out with my route from home to work and found that taking the car would be marginally faster than public transport (although parking fees and the congestion charge make it much more expensive) and that there's a regular bus that could talke me to the station every day. Superb. Next time you need to plan your journey in the UK give Transport Direct a try.
It's rather an odd point'n'click
game, but you have to click around a lot to escape a room so the dark room
definately meets all the requirements. Graphically it reminds me a little of Tron
, which is a bit odd for this type of game.

Following BMW's lead
Mercedes present the on-line film, The Porter
, a classy presentation, but obviously with some heavy product placement. I really like the car
, but BMW win hands down in term of the films.
A USB powered pad
to heat your coffee? Somebody teach me Japanese so I stand a chance of being able to buy one. Although I don't think this is the route to go down to reduce my number of coffee vrs. keyboard accidents.
Well here it is, MOTAS
pace). Considered by many to be the granddaddy of all point'n'click
games, I've been resisting posting it as I wanted to finish it before I did. However this is the New Years Link clearout and as I'm mailed a link to it every other week, and I haven't got round to playing it for so long, it's got to go. Maybe your comments
will finally help me finish the thing.
adventure stretches beyond the confines of just one web site with The Hiding Room
. An interesting development adding more depth to the game, but not quite as intense a method as employed by perplexcity
(thank goodness). One word of warning - this one has rich animations and graphics, which look good, but which means you can just about forget this one if you're trying to play on a slow connection.
Important Update: If you want to start this multi-site adventure you should really begin at helpmefindjon.com - The whole purpose of the game is to find Jon Harker, something I didn't realise initially as I found the Hiding Room site first.
Do you remember the inflatable church
? Well the inflatable pub
is definately more useful as long as it doesn't serve inflatable beer.
