did you see the latest have i got news for you? He was on there and not as funny as i though he was going to be, then again, they may have edited a load of stuff out, will have to wait for the extended one (i forget what its called) to come out on iplayer to see if he's in it more.

his books are really funny aswell, im about to read the hell of it all.

Kind of true what he was saying about games like Rockband though.

That's about it, yeah. Never says anything new or particularly well observed - he's just a very good writer and has a good screen presence but he's no fucking god. He's a journalist who likes computer games and swears essentially.

That's not really what I meant. He's made some pretty good insights at times (did you see the Screenwipe he did on children's telly just after Oliver Postgate died?) and his Guardian column is always worth the read.

He's probably the most discussed newspaper columnist I can think of, I just reckon his constant negativity would get you down after a while if he was your mate.
