Free Next-Gen Console that doesn't break down :-)

"AOL Broadband now offering a free Sony PlayStation 3

The free laptop offer from AOL Broadband launched in September 2007 is continuing and has been expanded. The latest offer is a free Sony PlayStation 3, for those signing up to AOL Broadband Wireless Plus.

Of course, something like a PS3 for free does come with some conditions. The service has a 24 month contract and requires you to sign up to an AOL Talk call plan (the Pay As You Go Plan is included in the £19.99 bundle). For those not in an area that AOL has unbundled the monthly fee increases by £10.

One possible source for confusion is the wording "Yours to keep forever * Provided you are provisioned with AOL Broadband". This refers to the 24 month contract period, and means so long as you keep your broadband with AOL Broadband, you get to keep the PS3 after the 24 months."


That's not a bad deal at all to be fair. Basically means you get the PS3 completely free for staying on AOL for 2 years, or free broadband for 2 years for buying a PS3.

In other news, Assassin's Creed is like being married to a bimbo- no discerning intelligence or mental stimulation between you for hours on end, and then just as you're having second thoughts about the arrangement, she fucks your brains out like no-one has ever done before, and all is right with the world. Repetitive gameplay? Yes. Simple narrative? Yes (barring the massive twist, but that happens right at the beginning). Do I keep coming back for more? Oh hell yes. It's not without it's (major) flaws, but it's just sooooooooo good at what it does. The visuals are the most stunning next-gen graphics I've yet seen (including CoD4), the thrill of gently pushing through a crowd to assassinate someone, then escaping over the rooftops and blending into the crowd just never dies. I give it 8 Stabbings out of 10.

Video Game Anagrams

Big LOLs to, who have succesfully created the FUNNIEST anagrams of games I've ever seen. Actually, they're probably the ONLY ones I've seen, but props go to them for recreating the artwork for each one.

Look out for Rape Stress and Steve Irwin: The Camel Fucker.

Look with your eyes, here.

The Offical Plush Companion Cube

More crazy cube news, today...

Coming soon to the Valve online store is this frankly AMAZING plush Companion Cube and also, arguably better, a pair of Cubes for your car mirror. Brilliant, just brilliant. I'll be putting in an order as soon as they're for sale.

If this doesn't mean a lot to you, stop messing about on the Internet and go and play Portal.

WhatchCUBE Talkin' 'Bout, Willis?

Gary Coleman recently sold his Nintendo Gamecube via eBay. Times must be hard, because Gamecubes are worth about ten pence these days. Although he DID sign everything. For your money, you would've got Sonic Gems Collection, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Robots, Mario Kart, and Mortal Kombat Deception. Plus the silver Gamecube. All signed! They went for $510. Bargain.

Did you hear that he hit a lady once?

Apologies For Lack Of Posts

A little explanation for the lack of posts! Sorry, we've been very slack over here at UDLR towers, recently. I don't have a 360 right now, although it HAS made it to the service centre, so thanks UPS. While waiting for it's return, so I can play The Orange Box again, I've been playing the SUBLIME Shadow Of The Colossus on the Playstation 2. If you haven't played it yet, stop reading this and go and buy it. You MUST already have a PS2. I think everyone does.

In quick, summary type news, this is what's exciting...

  • Super Mario Galaxy is out in Japan, and has rave reviews from everyone.
  • Gray Fox from Metal Gear Solid is to feature in Smash Bros Brawl, alongside Snake.
  • From the 23rd to the 26th November, Xbox Live Gold will be FREE in Europe.
  • Firmware 2.00 has been released for the Playstation 3, which enables remote Start. This means you can turn on your PS3 using your PSP, from any wifi spot, and control it, including downloading content. You can then turn it off again afterwards. Hooray!
  • A sequel to Lost Planet is pretty much confirmed for the Xbox 360, titled Lost Planet Colonies. This is GOOD news.
We're updating LOTS soon, including moving to a cleaner, better webpage. ALL CHANGE. We're going Wordpress.
