I'm now sold on DJ Hero

I think I’m going to have to get it. Was very tempted already when I heard that DJ Shadow was involved. However I’m a sucker for Daft Punk. Ideally I’d spend several hours a day wearing one of their robot helmets, dispensing short advice on my face screen. Maybe in a bank. I digress. This looks very good.

Learning to love Forza 3 slowly

I’m playing a fair old bit of Forza 3 this week. It looks lovely. It plays fine. It’s just, hmmmm, a little hard to put my finger on it, but it’s just not there at the moment. I think it might be that it just isn’t any big jump from Forza 2, it looks a bit nicer, it’s got more cars and tracks, but there just isn’t a wow factor that lets you know it is a new game. I’m going to keep going, maybe when I’m in the better cars I’ll love it more.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with it either. It’s all done right, but I just want that X-Factor (X-Forza?) to push me over the edge, make me love playing it.

Full of

Cold. Lucky me. I had booked the time off to go and visit a friend, instead I’ve been at home blowing my nose most of the day.

Have mainly been playing championship manager 4 and PSO. Championship Manager is supposed to be the most realistic football game ever. Well, I’m a useless manager, and it is nigh on impossible to get Darlington out of the bottom half of Division 3. I think they have got it just about right.
