    Which part of sweden is that? Must be fairly north. We've had dribs and drabs of snow, but it's mainly in the mountainous regions

    It's snow pretty much all over Sweden at the moment. I live below Stockholm and we have snow outside. And the damn car keeps getting its locks frozen.

    morning all
    not snowing here, (outer hebrides) no frost either. beautiful sunrise, clear blue sky and gorgeous golden clouds.
    we have, however, had some seriously impressive winds, and horizontal rain. that was last week. this week, been lovely so far. am hopefully getting the chimney swept this week, so i'll be making serious inroads into the peat in the barn [​IMG]

    Isn't it great to just click on the babble thread and only have to scroll down instead of trying to remember which page you read last? We old people can have problems with that (no ageism intended ...) *grins*

    And yes, it's FRIIIIIIDAYYYYYYY!!!

    I live north of Stockholm, and the snow has pretty much melted away here [​IMG]. Am not a big fan of winter, but rather snow than mud.

    Friday cheers to all the "staying indoors" babblers!

    I quite understand.

    Nobody but a sadist could pick-on someone who was already suffering from "Coventry", and I've never thought of you like that.

    Probably doesn't entirely fit into the broad definition of "work safe", but not too bad

    My ICQ has rather noisily just told me it's Petra's birthday. If this is correct, then happy birthday!!!!

    [/ QUOTE ]!!!??!!! BLASPHEMY!! Torture and Coventry should NEVER EVER go in one sentence!!! Except for when telling others not to do that, heh.... although......... we admit... It sometimes borders on torture being a Sky Blue... Why Miffy, why?!

    And, speaking of footy (sorry for the ppl who don't like football, but had to rant somewhere, and GD will likely listen!): What a disgrace was tonights ref in the Scotland - Italy game.... If there was ever any proof of matches being fixed by UEFA, referees getting instructions, it must be tonights game! Italy just can't miss out for them bobos! Big teams always need to win. Bah!
    And then the F-ing Dutch reporters/analysts going on abt how "justified" it is at the end of the day tha Italy goes through... Makes us wanna puke! Always these stereotypes about how Scotland can only play with their hearts, not with their mind putting a good display on the pitch. But they were freaking awesome, and outplaying those Italians! [/rant]

    Good night all!!

    PS: BAH! at missing the first page of the first Babble thread started by moddy Petra... [​IMG]

    Sounds like a bad game [​IMG]



    Anyone else playing Mario Galaxy?
    My copy arrived this morning and it is superb, one of the most fun games i've played in ages, I suspect i'm going to be spending a fair bit of time on it [​IMG]
    I went to have a quick go earlier and did the first set of levels [​IMG]


    [edit]
    that's it, no more mario tonight, it's now 4:25am and i've buzzing around in mario for far too long.

    Good morning all!!

    Wow Nilrem, you've got an addiction again lol! Haven't played Mario Galaxy, but most of those mario games are fun. Is it single player type game or such a Mario-party like game that's so funny to play with friends? [​IMG] [​IMG]

  35. Morning.
    The refereeing decisions in the last couple of minutes of the Scotland - Italy game were not very good to say the least. I have calmed down a hell of a lot since watching it in the pub last night. Ultimately losing a goal in the first minute was the downfall. Myself and most people in the pub were baffled by the substition. Scott Brown and Barry Ferguson were by far the best midfielders, so why take Brown off when Fletcher and Hartley had very poor games?
    It's another glorious failure, we can talk all we like about beating France home and away, but France will be in Austria/Switzerland and the Scots will not.

    And then just to rub salt in the wounds Israel score in the last minute . . .

    I wouldn't say i'm getting addicted to it...although the Wii's game timer might disagree (5 hours and counting;)).

    It's a "proper" Mario platformer, with a slight difference in the perspective and controls (it's very odd at first when you go over the edge of a world and are suddnly playing upside down).
    You can play it with two people, the second one apparently assists in doing certain things.

    It's one of the most enjoyable games i've played in a while, pure fun [​IMG]

    [/ QUOTE ]If you've got a PS2, keep an eye out for Okami, if you want another fun game. It's also getting a Wii release, but it's nowhere close to being out, and I'm not sure how it'll port.
    Basically, you play Ameterasu, the Shinto Sun Goddess, who appears in the form of a pure white wolf.
    I spent many, many hours playing it, and my only complaint is that some of the "dialogue" is unskippable, and slow (there's no spoken dialogue, it's all subtitled). Beyond that, I'd say it deserves all the the praise it's received from reviewers, and more.
    beyond that, it's really hard to describe. There's traditional combat stuff (with "divine instruments"), but also a "canvas" thing, where you use a "celestial brush" to invoke powers, through a gesture type system.

    It's also an amazingly artistic game, passing up realism for an almost "sumi-e" style (Linkie of example).
