Before I settle down to a good session of Bioshock in front of the 80 inch screen in this THX compliant room of ours (don't worry quiet room, it's fully soundproofed too) I have to ask, what the hell is Jack Thompsons problem.

Seriously, aren't there real issues out there worth getting hot under the collar about?
Manhunt 2, Bully, GTA I can juuuuust about see the controversy, but Halo 3?!?!

I play a weekly game of 'try to blow up the boss on Halo (or club him to death with a crowbar) over the work network' on Friday afternoons.

We both find it theraputic.

FPS therapy, I sooo recommend it.
It's amazing how cathartic blowing away a roomful of flood with the shotgun can be.

I've been playing cooking mama a bit of late which is short term fun, but Oblivion it ain't.
Roadster, up for more swappage?

Sorry, it's not halo, it's half-life(1). I was a bit knackered yesterday and didn't make much sense all day!

Half-life is AWESOME over the network!

It's also a version that was modded to death at the previous office before I got here, so you can be the dude inthe scream mask, etc. Genius.

No-one booked today off to play Halo 3 then?

messageRe: Gaming room (It's a geeks paradise)
Posted by mockney piers 26 September, 2007 11:09

I DO have tomorrow booked off for other reasons, but as I don't have to leave until half four, that does leave some me time in the morning.
Tempted I must say.

OK, got my Halo 3. Will have to use a new gamer tag to get online sadly.
Anyone got any suggestions (sad-twat is apparently taken)

Never been much of a console person, so never really got into Halo. Half Life on the other hand has consumed many of my waking hours.

...talking of which, has anyone been burning the midnight oil on Halo3? Thoughts people.
Had a top co-op experience the other night, followed by watching it all together on theatre mode.

Yet to really get my teeth into proper multiplayer though.
Disturbingly, of the 3 million people playing halo3 at the time, only 200 were in the multiplayer training area.
Might find it difficult to get my licence.

How do you guys manage to maintain relationships and social lives as well as play games? Oh and also work in-between?

I have to limit myself to playing games I know are boring because otherwise I get so completely roped in I forget to do things like eat, sleep and speak to people.

I have been fighting off the temptation to join my friends on WoW for the last year. That and to get an Xbox 360 so I can see what Test Drive Unlimited is like online.
