While I am glad he seems to be calling it off I think the damage has already been done, the actual burning is now irrellevant. Already in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq etc there have been violent demonstrations with at least 3 protestors shot outside a UN base.

As this is a family site I won't use the language I want to as this kind of thing is one of those things that really gets to me. Anyway time will see how this turns out.

It had to be brought up at some point, yes it's the burning Koran story.

Now I'm a very tolerant person, I even gave New Coke a chance but this whole saga really gets on my nerves. This Pastor, what the hell does he think he is doing?

For someone that represents a faith that supposedly preaches love, peace and understanding all he seems to want is firstly his 15 minutes of fame and secondly to cause as much destruction and unrest as possible.

What on earth does he thinks he's going to accomplish? Surely he knows that all he is doing is setting back years of peoples hard work that has been mending the ties between America and the Muslim world. I mean why decide to burn something that millions of people hold sacred? Could you imagine what would happen if an Imam decided to burn copies of the Bible on Easter Sunday? Also, where the hell is he getting all these copies of the Koran from? Surely if he goes into a bookstore and asks for 50,000 copies of the Korna while wearing a dog collar the owner will get suspicious.

Anyway in my opinion this Pastor is nothing but a twat of the highest order that wants the world to burn so long as he can have his time in the spotlight. He doesn't care about the mosque near ground zero (which incidentally is hurting no-one and is certainly not an insult to anyone) all he cares about is his own ego and twisted point of view. But that's my opinion, all other greatly received.

Let me state straight away this isn't a thread about how good I am at games because I hate people that do that.

I was playing some of my old Spectrum games and couldn't help noticing that games are getting easier. When I think back to games such as Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy, Attic Attak and Sabre Wulf I remember just how bloody hard they were and if you ever finished one you were hailed as some kind of gaming god.

Now though it seems that companies look more to style over substance. Yes games obviously look imeasurably better but does that relate to how good a game is? Some games like RPG's can offer nearly 100 hours of gameplay but your average game now is over in a mere 20-30. Back in my day it took you 20-30 hours just to get past level 2.

Gaming has come along but I fear we are starting to lose the soul of games to flashy graphics and online gamplay. Personally I want a game that looks like Zelda: A Link to the Past and plays for 3 years or so.

I'm not saying that games are ONLY graphics but lets face it that is what people judge a game by these days, yes gamplay comes into it but it's secondary.

Sorry this turned into a magazine article Smile Anyway all opinions welcome.

I was thinking back to some of my favourite game intros and music. Now I don't mean any mainstream song that has been put on a game like those on GTA radio stations, I mean music that was made for the game. My favourite 3 are as follows (in no particular order)

Metal Gear Solid 2 intro

The quite brilliant FF8 intro (I love Eyes on me too)

Sacred 2 Fallen Angel song Sacred

I was at a Car Boot Sale today and saw Shenmue for the Dreamcast and wished I still had my old console because it was a fantastic game. It got me thinking of all the old game I used to play that would be great either ported to a newer console or re-made.

So what games would you like to see given a new life?

We all have these guilty pleasures so I thought let's be brave and have fun.

My first is the St Trinnian's song

My second is It's Raining Men by Gerri Halliwell. The video isn't my favourite but I like the song.

I agree DGG, seeing what can be done with a computer now compared to 30 years ago is simply mind boggling. I remember when the Spectrum 48k came out and I was amazed at the graphics Smile

Funny story about the WWF game I bought though. My mom and dad were seperated and I stole 20 out my dad's wallet when I was visiting him to buy the game. Unfortunately my mom had bought me the game for Christmas and as she didn't have much money it was a big deal.

If ever there was a lesson against stealing I think that's it, I felt so bad. Needless to say I was grounded for a long time Smile

Today I couldn't help thinking about what got me started on gaming. For me my very first gaming experience was with a ZX81 game called Ambush but the first game I actually bought was WWF Wrestlemania for the spectrum.

So I got to wondering, what was everyone's very first game played and first game bought.

I haven't tried Twitter myself but because people like Stephen Fry have accounts it'd be interesting to read what they tweet.

I had a pretty normal day, although I did buy a game for my 360 which I rarely do.

I must admit I didn't expect this topic to become such a flash point. I agree with ICBM that the Muslim religion is primarily a peaceful one and does deserve a certain respect.

The trouble with religions though is that extremists always use them as an excuse to cause death and misery all in the name of a holy war, from the roman persecution of Christianity to the Crusades to the Secular violence in Northern Ireland and now Al Qaeda and the likes Holy War.

Religion can be a major problem throughout the world but it can also help people find peace with themselves and help with the loss of a loved one. It's a minefield thats for sure and I think the only way to get through it is to keep your eyes open and devote yourself to anything fanatically.

PostForum: Archives   Posted: Sat Aug 14, 2010 8:12 am   Subject: The Mosque
First off let me say I am not a religious person so this has nothing to do with any views I may have.

Today President Obama put his support behind a project to build a mosque near the site of the September 11th Twin Towers tradgey. Apparently there's a movement from relatives of those that were killed saying that this is disrespectful to those that were killed by the frankly sick attacks by Al Qaeda and glorifies what they did.

Now I understand why they are upset, losing anyone is a very painful thing but what they have to remember is that this attack was by Al Qaeda not the Muslim religion.

The vast majority of Muslims deplore what Al Qaeda did and do not agree with their views in any way and if they want to build a mosque then I say why not. Have we become so blinded by these extremists that we no longer recognise people's right to worship a religion that largely promotes peace and understanding?

I find myself asking a simple question. If they wanted to build a Catholic Church near Ground Zero would there be such an outcry? We all know that it is rife with corruption, sexism, homphobia and instances of Paedophilia but I'm fairly confident that people wouldn't say it's an insult to the children, wives and partners of those who were killed.

But like I say it's just my opinion. Any others are gratefully accepted. Smile

For me my consoles are my life-blood. I love watching sci-fi shows and am nuts about my animals. Other than that I think a nice meal is high up the list.

Don't think this has been mentioned here yet but if it has, my apologies.

I jst got hit with a virus that makes it look like Windows Security Suite is telling you that you have viruses on you computer. It stops you from doing anything like going online, opening Add/Remove Programs and even opening your current AV software.

It keeps sending you to a site that trys to get you buy Security Suite and entering your credit card info.

If you want to have a go at removing it manually then follow this link. If not then do what I do and do a System Restore to get rid of the little bugger.
