Where have the F1 video games gone?

Pitpass ran an interesting story yesterday about the deadlock that appears to have been reached between Sony and Bernie Ecclestone who are in negotiations to create a new Formula 1 video game. It is a shame that Bernie’s “hardball” attitude has led to this apparent stalemate. I have been a big fan of Sony’s Formula […]

They don’t know they’re born, etc.

I have only been an adult for three weeks, but I think I am well on the way towards becoming a grumpy old man. Something happened this Easter that annoyed me quite a lot. Some parents actually gave their children gifts at Easter time. Fuck off! As far as I am concerned, Easter is for […]

2006 has gone

Well a happy new year to you, now that we are actually in it. I notice that a few bloggers (like Will) have been posting their top five posts. I can assure you that the five most-viewed posts of the year will not have been my five best posts of the year. They will just […]

Phones: they make great phones!

Here is iRiver’s “PSP killer”, the G10 (via New Links). Looks nice, but the PSP is bound to win for two reasons: WipEout Pure (a return to form for the WipEout series!) Lumines (the most addictive puzzle game I’ve played in ages) While we’re on fancy new-fangled gadgets, I’ve been hearing one or two people […]

Formula One 05 (PS2)

Regular readers of this blog must undoubtedly know that I am a Formula 1 fan. I also like my video games. So it shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that I love Formula 1 video games. Unfortunately, their quality is often fairly patchy. Formula 1 games need to be rushed out, because they get out […]
