Some Might Sway - 22nd December

Noel Gallagher Game

"THANKS to his love of booze, Noel Gallagher's 2006 has been Definitely Mayhem. That's why readers of Bizarre have voted Oasis's reborn rogue their Caner of the Year. To celebrate, we've created a lager-than-life new game based on Noel's beery antics."

Aside from once again claiming that Bizarre readers had anything at all to do with choosing the winner of Caner of the Year (see yesterday), it's interesting to note the phrases "we've created" and "new game" used to describe what looks remarkably like a direct copy of this 2 year-old Swiss game called Home Run 2004. With Noel Gallagher's head stuck on it. Let's hope the original creators were paid for their source code.

Christ. On. A. Bike.

I remember playing this two years ago (in its original state, before the poor 'Bizarre' Photoshop boy was dragged out of the office Christmas party to spend an hour googling 'How to hack Flash files'). I can't believe Newton's trying to get away with this on the website of a national newspaper.

Oh, wait. Of course I can.
