On a tablet - ASUS TF101 running ON 4.0.3 - the App screen has tiny icons, which don't work. Also, the config link flashes the setting page then quickly flicks back to the main screen, after which even the config link fails.

Sorry to hear that. As I cannot reproduce the error, and nobody else has reported something similar, I guess it has to do with your device.
Try reinstalling the app.

You mentioned that it shouldn't happen, but not (I think) why it happened.

It happened because kirk took it back usually we don't allow it but for the games sake it was a terrible move and probably would have ended the game then and there. We commentate the videos after filming them usually a few days later so we're not 100% on some of the decisions nor can we do anything about them at that stage.

Occasionally I still get messages about this. The oddest being someone has had a Zoomer for three years without a problem. Odd because they were released less than a year ago…

+Stella The pirate Apologies, Stella, but this is not fixable by simply turning off and moving the legs back, as when it was turned on the motors drove the legs back again, followed by much clicking of the internal clutch (a safety device to stop the engine from burning out.

Ah, thanks. Didn't mean to "be that guy", as we all make mistakes. On TableTop they re record when there's an error, but I guess that's not feasible.

No, David Cameron, privatising the NHS then HAVING to spend more for your mates to profit does NOT count as "increasing funding" to the NHS!

Brought a PS3 from work. Had it on a few hours now. This "Update/Install everything" game isn't very interactive…

Well, I rage quit the Update game so I could play Destiny. It seems it's just a reskin of the built in Install game. Sure, my score goes up - currently on 54% but stuck knowing which button to press; not too sure of these Quick Time mechanics to be honest - but it's not that different to the previous game. Can't see what all the fuss is about, but when I change levels the graphics are nice. Frame rate's a bit low; I reckon one frame every 60s or there abouts!

Also, you need to lock focus on the camera to prevent autofocus messing up occasionally.

Story
Introduction
Story Teller, Writer and Broadcaster, Lecturer and all round Pedagogist, interested in Games, Plagiarism, Social Effects of Technology, oh and Plagiarism. Dr. Mike "DoctorMike" Reddy has studied and worked at several universities, including Durham, Leeds and Manchester, and is now Programme Leader for Games and Future Technology at the University of Wales, Newport. He claims to be “an awful academic, far more interested in the playing and the doing of life than the writing and reviewing” and perhaps for that reason has been instrumental in raising debate over 21st century pedagogy and teaching practices in the UK, reprioritizing learning and reminding us that education is something you do for/with students, not at them. He is currently stupidly busy working on the World's first Foundation Degree for getting Artists to program, while running the EU funded caldys2 project aimed at creating computer games to aid children with dyslexia learn English as a second language, with 10 EU partners. Lots of travel, lots of work, no time...
