The one with Year one

For anyone that has been looking at the feeds on the right, you will have noticed "The Movie Bit" feed. Over the last few weeks, I've taken the decision to run a dedicated movie blog, and from now on anything that I have to say about movies will be posted directly there. The Movie Bit blog, is still a work in progress, so excuse me while the renovations are ongoing!

Anyways, check out the Year one review by clicking here

The one with Gameness on a Thursday


Time for the weekly gaming bit!

Crackdown 2 is on the way, the first one was outstanding. Here’s the low down on the sequel from the developers via Edge online
"We've got core members from every discipline who worked on [Crackdown 1], the majority of the design team, and, depending on whom you speak to, some of the best coders and most talented artists," said creative director Billy Thompson.
"We still maintain a really strong working relationship with [original developer] Realtime; they're our neighbours in both personal and professional relationships, and we like that," piped in producer Jim Cope. "But leaping to our defence, in a sense, we firmly believe we're the right people to make Crackdown 2."
Elsewhere in the interview the Ruffian pair reveal that the second Crackdown takes place in the same locale, Pacific City, "but further on in the timeline."

Gran Turismo, probably one of the greatest looking games on any system, particularly the PS3 incarnation, well check out the PSP version. I shit you not. Kinda makes me wanna go and buy a PSP again! I'm still finding it hard to believe that these shots are on the PSP. Hope it plays as well as it looks!

Square Enix is being taken to court for "deceptive advertising, unfair practices and fraudulent concealment" in regards, mainly, to fees in MMO title Final Fantasy XI.

The court filing states that Square apparently deceived around 100,000 players of its online game, being less-than-upfront over the terms of monthly fees, penalties for late payments, interest charges and termination of accounts for late payments

MS have released some new gear for your avatars over on Xbox Live. Outfits include surfer shorts, dodgy vests and even hotpants. Not sure if you get some cheek action with the hotpants, but still!

Resident Evil, one of the original survival horror games. Most were enjoyable? How about a Lego version
