Need For Speed Is Boring Indeed

Originally posted on IMDBwords:
Don’t you think that? I loved Trailer of Need For Speed because it thrilled me but watching the film was so disappointing. Even you can say that it hurt me because I wasted my time just. Story is so poor I’m sure. I can imagine that if you guys would have watched the movie then how much stunned you’d be. Unfortunately I cant recommend that one because it would be just waste of time and you guys know that time is money. Need for Speed game is much better than the movie.

Games Inbox: Uncharted 1 review, Super Smash Bros., and Resident Evil Revelations 2

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune – has time been kind? The morning Inbox wonders if Skylanders can outsell Call Of Duty, as one reader tries to explain the sudden survival horror boom. To join in with the discussions yourself email gamecentral@ukmetro.co.uk ? Drake’s poor fortune Given all the talk about Tomb Raider vs. Uncharted 4 last year I thought I’d go back and take a look at the original Uncharted. I’ve owned it for a long time but never got very far as the other games seemed more interesting. And going back to it now I have to say things have not got better. The game’s gun action is pretty awful, with nothing but bullet sponge enemies and a terrible camera. Now I can understand the graphics looking not as good as they used to, so I won’t criticise that (although they are pretty bad now) but thanks to the camera the platforming’s not much fun either. I’m always grabbing onto the wrong vine or whatever and I swear it’s not my fault.…

Bravo for no corkage charge at Cafe Brava, Cardiff, but.. – Restaurant Review

On the basis that Summer (mighty fine as it has been) seemed to have ended come August therefore limiting my chances of firing up the BBQ, Mrs. SF and I decided (before Big Bad Bertha – the storm rather than a or person- arrived) to go out to dinner last weekend. The spot chosen was Café Brava, which is a much loved “Yummy Mummy” frequented café in the heart of Pontcanna (an uber trendy part of Cardiff ), which of an evening transforms into a compact and bijou bistro. The rather stellar feature that Café Brava has is a policy of no corkage charge on BYO wine and fizz after 6pm each evening. For a wine lover like me this is, in marketing terms, a killer USP. One of the down sides of liking a drop of wine is that I am aware of the retail price of most wines and thus the mark up a restaurant puts on wines they sell. The level of mark up applied to wine…

the Good Made by an established North American brand – Yankee Candle Company A well presented household accessory item – large glass jar with a chunky popper topper lid and a colourful, gold trimmed label depicting Tiare flower blooms Tahitian Tiare Flower Yankee Candle has a strong scent. The fragrance is very much that of a Gardenia style perfume The candle smell is floral and thickly sweet and the wax is milky white The Paraffin Wax used is refined. Wicks are all – cotton and the 10mm length should be trimmed and maintained to a 3- 5mm length before lighting Candlelight creates ambiance. For best results allow the wax to pool into a liquid layer the Bad Burning the candle on a non-heat resistant surface is not recommended Placing the lighted candle in a draft is not advisable A potential safety hazard – keep away from children and pets and never leave unattended while lit … and the Plain Ugly There is no strict control measures currently in place of which candle producers are required …

Featuring jigsaw puzzles from the Happy Days Seaside range at Ravensburger

The Artist The oil paintings by artist, Kevin Walsh have been reproduced on many greetings cards, plates and biscuit tins, and prints as well as jigsaw puzzles. Walsh paints those stone walled, idyllic countryside scenes of people picnicking, walking or playing sports. He depicts British life from an earlier time, childhood days post WWII…and the sun is usually shining … things like the traditional farmyard, seaside towns, the village green, street parties, and he will often include a mechanical/motorized vehicle from the 1950s, sometimes a tram, or a steam engine in its full glory. The historic detailing is expert, as Walsh researches his subject in great depth before he starts a project. The nostalgia in the imagery has earned Walsh wide attraction and appeal for his work and he has established a following of collectors. He has a prestigious list of clients to his name (including Ravensburger) and UK commissions include Harrods and Cadbury. The Blackpool Theme This picture is a wonderful depiction of this famous Lancashire seaside town. The Blackpool Tower features of course, …
