I'll have to watch this while on my lunch seems like a pretty good interview.

Yeah that's a great point! Give me a save point just before the hard bit. I don't want to drive for 30 mins again or run through jungle for an hour again just so I can die again and then do it all again. If I actually am able to keep my attention going till the end of the game then you may get my DLC cash!

This! A checkpoint once you arrive at your mission destination would lessen the amount of time I spend on GTA getting annoyed.

Well if the checkpoint system in GTA IV: Ballad of Gay Tony is anything to go buy, I'd say you & Dara will be a couple of happy punters.

Yea, thanks Dara for rubbing it in that you can afford to by THREE newly released games, while I on the other hand have to scrape by so I can buy your new DVD and add it to my Dara O'Brian collection which consists of more of your DVDs, posters, books, slightly blurred secret pictures I took of you while you were shopping including a shot I am really proud of at a public loo and your life size papier mache doll I have been making, including holes.....NIIIYYYYYAAAAAAAAAA HAA HAAIIIIEEEEEEEEE!!!

JOKING!!! :D

I hope Dara O'Briain and Charlie Brooker get around to making a TV show about games, the one off "Gameswipe" was great, and I'd love to see more of the same.

+1

though, they kinda covered everything in Gameswipe.

i want 'GamesMaster', presented by Dara O'Briain and Charlie Brooker, now THAT would be quality. they could even setup games live on the show, then get people at home to join the games and play them live on air, instead of getting people in like on the old shows.

i will produce it. :lol:

Is it just me, or does anyone else find the musical accompaniment in videos such as this bizarre & incredibly frustrating.. 'Here's an interesting person for you to listen to & we'll provide a totally incongruous/infuriating (not to mention crappy) musical backing track for your delectation, just in case you are able to hear all he is saying a little too clearly..
