Click for hot dancing action! If you ever feel the need to dance with me but are to far away, click the picture and dance with me. For optimal results please listen to Distance by Long Shot Party while watching.
This is my first ever GIF animation, yes it's simple, but I had fun making it all the same and by comparison to my old flash animations (which I wish I still had to show) isn't half bad as a first try.
I picked up the Tom Clancy Endwar demo this morning from XBL Marketplace, thinking "Wow this is going to be terrible" but after spending the tutorial bit swearing at the computer lady for not understanding what i was saying and finding the campaign level short and confusing, I tried the single player skermish level, which was the same map but gave you alot more freedom and once I'd figured out what you actually had to do, I was having so much fun ordering people around. Still stopping everynow and again mind to tell the computer to "Fuck off and die" when ever it didnt understand my erms and urms. As the game was drawing to a close I was loosing as I hadn't figured out I had to capture the points untill half way through, and this new option appeared on my screen... so i pointed at the enemy and said with a slightly evil grin: "WMD target" and laughed as on my voice command half the units on the map where distroyed enemy and my own. I couldn't believe they'd listen to me and drop some huge laser thing on top of their own men.
All my laughing ended quickly however, when I realised I had yet another game I had to buy along with the rest:
Fable 2, Fallout 3, Mirror's Edge, Gears of War 2, Rockband 2 ... and now Endwar.
Sorry for yet another lazy picture, well, even more lazy if you count that I bothered with text on the last one. Anyway, this was bothering me all of last night, is it me, or is there more than just a passing similarity between Darren Osbourne from Hollyoaks and Larry Butz from the Ace Attorney series. I'm thinking in looks and personality here, at least as far as the love with women is concerned. I doubt somehow that Larry could go quite as far as to fake his own fathers death to get his parents out of debt and ultimately claim the family pub for his own... Larry is far too stupid for that...
See what I mean by physically similar though? Seriously I'm confused.

One of these lovely lady's had the chance to win 100,000 pound on some quiz show but they messed it up. Problem is I can't remember which of these two it was, care to help me?
While I'm here, with shows like Deal or no Deal requiring you to be at the studio every day until your turn to play has passed. I hope the people who go on it, loose their jobs. Personally at my last job, I couldn't have got away with asking for time off to play a game. Maybe that's just me liking the idea of someone playing for the chance of winning 250,000 and coming away with a pound coin, no job and a ruined life.
