Re: Knightmare moments that made you laugh out loud

Christopher's team from Series 2 mistaking a spade for a giant spoon. Even funnier that they decided to name it the "Spoon of Interest" and that was entirely the team's idea. It's said that you should always call a spade a spade. Maybe they were bored of the game and decided to make up their own qu...

Re: Mega-zine (Teletext)

Yep I used to post on there between 2000-2002 I think. I was Dark Grey Wolf of Norbex and a few others. Uh huh, the name rings some bells. Now all we need is for the Brigadier and Kellogulation to saunter over here and essentially we have a non- Vegetable Revolution reunion! Break out the Watered L...

Re: Series 7 Episode 7 *Half Way*

Don't think this is the first episode of the series we hear it, but glad to see the goblin siren is still in use at certain points, most notably PYCR. It's about ten times better than the marching army sound effect, which is a bit pants in comparison. Mind you, I don't think it was meant as a replac...

Re: Mega-zine (Teletext)

I wish I'd kept a copy of my 'Zine contributions, too. I remember writing a genius poem once (something to do with a bumble bee?) that's now sadly lost forever. :/ Shame it all went downhill in the later years. The day I noticed that White Line Warrior wasn't even writing his/her/its comments below...

Re: Mega-zine (Teletext)

I was proud to call myself a 'Ziner way back at the turn of the century. I wish I'd kept some of the stupid emails I've sent to them, they'd be fun to read again! I remember writing stuff about Ford Focuses being rubbish (who drives those now, eh?), unusual things you can do with a walking stick, da...

Re: What the future holds, perhaps?

Ooh, I heard someone mention GamesMaster in a similar topic and had to bite. Now there's a show that could so easily be brought back for the modern market simply because there's nothing quite like it on terrestrial telly at the moment, plus there's a huge market for modern video (computer?) games. T...

Re: Knightmare Commentary Tracks

Probably said this before plenty of times, but these commentaries are fantastic. They remind me of when me and my brother would watch the repeats on Challenge/Sci Fi and talk endlessly about cack going on in the episode, paying not a blind bit of notice to the plot or stuff like that. Not that these...

Re: Knightmare.com Update

How many entries are there? 1,000ish? Shouldn't take too long to copy across in my experience, maybe a weekend. Is there no way of exporting the raw xml history files, or is it not one of those kinds of wikis?

Re: male/female knightmare fans

Bad Influence used to give games two scores, one from the girls and one from the boys. Er, presumably in order to prove that girls play games too, or something. Interesting, that. I know of no other games show that did that at the time or even since. I'm kind of glad we've moved on from the days of...

Re: male/female knightmare fans

What's a game "aimed at girls", though? I don't see why a game shouldn't be universalisable, never mind what gender the main character is. Some games allow you to choose and everything. I'm talking about games like those awful Spice Girls and Britney dance ones in the mid-90s. Plus, I'll wager ther...

Re: An American Reviews Knightmare

Dodgy RP accents ahoy!

I don't really like TGWTG.com, but I quite liked Spoony even before he reviewed Knightmare, so you can imagine my surprise when he posted the vid. Oh yes, and this in particular seems incredibly familiar...

Re: What makes a 'good' episode of Knightmare?

I think my 'dream episode' of Knightmare would have to have a comedy death in it, preferably following a series of silly errors the production team let them get away with. I think I was more entertained by some of the poorer teams by many of the winning ones, though I have to admit I wouldn't like s...

Re: Knightmare sound effects

I've heard one of the bird sound effects from Season 4 (and maybe some of the others) in the original Age of Empires. Only noticed that this week, actually. Might not be the same clip, but it struck me as incredibly similar.

Re: male/female knightmare fans

At the risk of increasing the level of swooping generalisation in this thread... This reminds me of an old debate about video games, the fact there were no really good ones made specifically for girls. The trouble is, they were incredibly condescending and, to be honest, really bad. The best games w...

Re: Knightmare Commentary Tracks

It very much sounds as though you were enjoying recording them, and I can tell you it's as much fun listening to them, for this KM fan anyway. I'm even tempted to give it a go myself, though I'm not exactly a fount of Knightmare knowledge.

Currently listening to Series 4 :)
