ToyFare Mario

About ToyFare comics: (From Wikipedia)

"ToyFare is a monthly comedy and collecting magazine published by Wizard Entertainment that focuses on collectible action figures, busts, statues, and maquettes. It previews new and upcoming lines and figures each month, as well as providing a price guide for hundreds of different toy lines, new and old. ToyFare is also known for its satiric humor, which can be found on almost every page."

Sonic The Hedgehog :- The Movie

Yes its a fake, but still, I don't think it could be half as bad as Super Mario Bros. was, for a start, this would have Keanu Reeves and Steve Buscemi in, also Danny Devitto was pretty good in Batman Returns, but the less said about Diesel Engined Van the better.

Blogger BETA = infuriating!!!

ARGH, every so often, I type something I think is well written and interesting to read, click "Publish" only for this damn software to pop up with an error message stating that "Posts can be no more than 200 characters".

Yet I know for a fact it canb be longer! The blog about IGN's Zelda guides is 1019 characters before any sort of html code was inserted (the html being the links at the bottom of the post).

I found the character count out thanks to this website.

Bye Bye Gamecube, VG Cats Stylee!!!!!

VG Cats have done it, they've killed off the Gamecube, and they've done it in their normal funny fashion. Anyone who loved the Gamecube should check out their latest comic. Just cick the link up top.

Lazy Arsed IGN staff...

OK, Gaming post time again.

I've been playing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on Gamecube all weekend, and I'm loving it. Anyway, I'm on a flaming bridge and I'm not sure how to get past it, so I check t'internet for a guide, and choose IGN's own walkthrough as it has a pretty decent menu system.

While scrolling through to the bit I'm on, I noticed a place name screenshot, and noticed it had been mirrored, so I checked another with the controls tab on and thats been mirrored too.

It seems, rather than take actual screenshots of the Gamecube version of the game, they've just flipped the Wii shots (for those that don't know, the Wii version is a mirror image of the Gamecube one, the Gamecube one being the original as it was in production first, plus in it Link is left-handed like he is in every other Zelda game) and then during the descriptions swapped the words East and West, Left and Right round in order for them to fit in properly with the Gamecube version, this is fine, but the screenshots just stink of lazy journalism.

Heres both guides for you:

Pilot see's plane take off without him.

From Ananova:

"A pilot watched in horror as his plane took off without him.

The airman, 70, saw it soar into the sky and do a loop before crashing, reports the Mirror.

The unnamed pilot had clung on to the wing to prevent it taking off at Barton Aerodrome, near Manchester, but lost his grip and fell off.

The drama began when the engine of the single-seater Luton LA4A cut out while the plane taxied.

The pilot left the cockpit to restart the motor manually but accidentally nudged the throttle lever open.

When he spun the propeller the engine roared into life and the plane surged down the runaway leaving the flyer stranded.

The plane was severely damaged but the pilot escaped with cuts and bruises.

An Air Accidents Investigation Branch investigation said the pilot did not realise he had knocked the throttle on because he was wearing padded clothing.

The plane is registered to Stephen Smith of Lancaster but he is not believed to have been the pilot.

A Barton Aerodrome spokesman declined to comment."

This is something you'd see in an old 70s British Comedy or something, well, minus the scantily clad women, ala Benny Hill or Carry On. I really wish there was video footage!
