International Cricket 2010 on Twitter

Last night, we did a live review of Codemasters’ new game International Cricket 2010 on Twitter. We played a Twenty20 match as Pakistan and basically got battered.

Anyone interested in live Twitter reviews of cricket computer games can follow us again from about 7pm tonight when we’re going to have a go at day one of the Ashes.

This is perhaps the dorkiest thing we’ve ever done and we’re a massive, massive dork anyway. A live Twitter review of a cricket computer game. Even mum doesn’t think we’re cool.

Follow us on Twitter. Reply to our auto-updates and then marvel at how we don’t respond for a full week.

The King Cricket mug implies that its owner is fully cool

    Mums aren’t there to think you’re cool – they’re there to love you and make sure you have clean socks and a haircut

    Well who is the one person we can rely on to say that we’re cool then?

    There must be someone…

    Of course. The worst judge of cool of all time. Who else?

    You are redefining dork

    In a good way?

    Don’t answer that.

    In an endearing way. Dorky is endearing, isn’t it? You Twitter posts made me laugh but I’m not signing up. Too new-fangled for me. Where does new-fangled get you, eh? Giles Clarke, some stupid grins and a perspex box full on fake £20 notes.
