Girding my loins
Starbuck [10:32] Comments: 4 []
Well, the anticipation is building in the run-up to Christmas, and with that in mind I would like to refer you to a super-fun builder simulation that has been eating into my worktime. It's Rocket Bob everyone!

Well, I call it a simulation, but it may not be 100% factually accurate, in that an essential tactic is bouncing Rocket Bob off the invisible walls constraining the sides of the screen. Aside from that, the physics of launching yourself off a girder using a pneumatic drill are indisputable. As far as I'm aware.

It's Worms without the weapons! Or the worms.

Great fun. And to add to it's festiveness, the game is German. As was Santa Claus, of course (or was he Turkish? Finnish? To be honest I don't care what he was, anything but the fucking American Santa Claus from The Movie.)

And not one bit of sulphate attack in sight...

totally off topic...

while aware of the concept, mainly from having to google it after seeing something about it on a british blog/website, i personally have no experience of dogging... if it is a popular 'sport' here, i don't know anyone who plays the game :)

perhaps it is another one of those typically pommy things...

God, innit (going back on topic) addictive? It's like Kenneth Connor with his ass on fire!

Heh! I see what you did there. But I may be the only one...
