I thought Codemasters announced a while back that they were only going to make racing games from now on?

I paid full price for Bad Rats when it came out.

I don't know what I was thinking.

Oh hey, a new mailbag, I'll have time for a quick 10 minute video before I go to bed...

OH SHIT 43 minutes? Well, I HAVE to see how the hell a mailbag takes 43 minutes, but it's also 1am and I need to go to bed. And this is how I end up being late for work in the morning.

Jeff has terrible taste in beer. Hoppy beers are the best. Shit like Budweiser is tasteless crap.

That controller looks awesome. I want one. I can't afford one, but I want one.

I played the game at EGX and they had handwritten leaderboards for the number of missions people completed without dying. The guy before me did 11 missions and topped the leaderboard. I waltz up to the computer and say "well, after he did so well I'm going to end up dying on the first mission". I ended up doing 14 missions and topping the leaderboard for the entire 4 day event.

So, as the worlds number one Heat Signature player, I feel confident in saying that the game is really awesome and I'm super excited for it to come out. It's pretty barebones for now (although the build in this video already looks much further along than the one I played less than two months ago) but it already plays really well, if a bit repetitive. But less repetitive missions will come with time.

Tom also did a talk at EGX that was really interesting:

The only games that I can think of that could fit this list are TERRIBLE. You probably don't want to list these, but I'll mention them anyway.

I'm fairly certain that none of the PS1/PS2/GBC/GBA Hugo games came out in the US. As a moronic child I bought several of them. Nope, I wasn't clever enough to buy the first one, see that it was terrible and then not buy another one. Nope, I bought at least two more before I stopped. Yup, I was the kind of kid who would stick his hand into the power socket and instead of thinking "Ouch, that hurts, I shouldn't do that again" I'd think "I wonder if that other power socket hurts too".

In my defence, they were budget games (£5 I think. Some might have been £10) and Tesco kept stocking them. I blame Tesco.

In other terrible games that I kept buying the sequels to, London Racer and its sequels (many of which don't seem to be in the wiki. I should get on that. Can't let the knowledge of those games die out) were PAL only.

I actually really wish I still had those games. I would have a pretty good collection of terrible games if I still had all my old PS1 & 2 games. But all of my old games were lost in a house fire a couple of years ago.
