Follow Up : Q-bert news

As Merg pointed out earlier in the week Roger Ebert has a new website. Ch-ch-check out his review of :: Sky Captain : The Things of tomorrow (or whatever it's called).

Good things : It looks like FFVII the movie crossed with AI
Bad things : It has serial whinger/cry baby Paltrow in it.

First saw the trailer for this back in February, and quite fancied it then... release date's been moved back at least three times though, and that never bodes well...

Nice CYA Senor Bungholio! ;)

I heard it was cause they couldn't get the CGI finished in time... the whole movie was shot against a blue screen or something. Looks like that awful Disney film "Rocketman" only this time, much better!

Merg said...

That memo^H^H^H^H post is fake!

The font's wrong! We didn't have superscripts til just under 10 minutes ago!

Merg said...

Bungers: at least one of the moves was to stop it opening up against a major title -- can't remember which one.

I thought it might be Spider-Man but the more I think about it, I doubt that because Spider-Man opened pretty early in the US (June 30th, IIRC).

For those that haven't seen the trailer, it looks kind of like WW2 if it was set in the Crimson Skies universe.

Crimson Skies - cracking game.

Waits patiently for Dogs. ;)

Merg said...

He won't appear -- he's not allowed out to play with us any more, remember (probably because you're such a bad influence! ;) ).

As for Crimson Skies, loved the original -- still narked the sequel was Xbox only, and not ported to the PC.

mmChronic said...

I think Dogs was lurking today from home - I think I spotted his IP a couple of hours back.

So his excuse of not being allowed out is tosh. He's just scared of playing out with the big boys. Bait, bait . :)

Merg said...

Perhaps he's too busy practicing his l33t UK2K4 skillz?

mmChronic said...

If we write a 'current frags' plugin for Blogger like the 'Currently listening to' ones for MT then we might just tempt him back. ;)

Did you like the Bush stories today btw? I'm most proud of this one. :)

Merg said...

I felt your Bush stories were quite up to the standard we've expected here on NL -- and if you work hard, you may one day be able to work for the Daily Sport.

I'm afraid on current evidence though, The Sun is out of your league ;)

mmChronic said...

I'd like to see the Sun story that uses foments in the title - unless it's a story about asylum seekers making home brew and selling it to children. :)

They occasionally do use big words -- I have a theory it's people who normally work for "The Times" being seconded to their less-impressive stable-mate...
