Greetings once again Bouff fans!
At long last we can confirm that Emily is now defintely back on the telly and can currently be seen regularly presenting a quiz programme on Sky Channel 166! We're currently putting together a small gallery of images but in the meantime here's one to whet your appetite!
Emily has recently been away touring Thailand which is why there hasn't been much news from Bouff.tv recently. But she's back now and is back on the box which is great news for all you lucky SKY viewers outTHERE!!
Rinko apparently really likes the number 23. You should mention it to her as many times as possible to her if you meet her, it will make her like you more.
COSPLAYING AS SNOW WHITE
........they've sort of lost us with this one, we'll admit.
HOVERING HOVERING MULTIPLICITOUSLY ABOVE ARCADES
We're not sure what most of that says because it's written in ridiculous cutesy Japanese, but we're told the one in the middle says "EEEEEEEVERYONE BECOOOOOOME HAPPYYYYYYY!"
SHILLING GAMES AND MOBILE PHONES (DUH)
It's well known that no matter how much you pay a Japanese girl, they just CANNOT smile convincingly about anything. Singing, comics, lesbian porn, they ALWAYS look at the very least just a little bit like they're scanning for the quickest escape route and calculating how fast they can run in their Ulala platform shoes which they're being paid to wear.
Pity poor Rinko though. Her job is to sell RETRO SEGA GAMES. This means that in this photo she is DEFINITELY being stared at by a horde of overweight, thirty-ish Sega fans. That's GENUINE FEAR you can see in her eyes.
TOWERING FOUR FLOORS HIGH OVER DOGENZAKA HILL
Your mission for this week is to see if you can find us an MPG or something of the Princess Rinko TV commercial. We've only seen it once and we have no idea what it's for, but it features ten or so children running round and round, playing air hockey and chanting "SEGA SEGA SEGA SEGA SEGA SEGA SEGA SEGA SEGA!" in a shrill, high pitched scream while Rinko looks on and says "Piiiiiiii! Puuuuuuun!" (which appears to be her catchphrase).
I would just like to pull you up about your article on Pek Ham:Pek Ham is also a substandard SPAM substitute from Poland that you can buy from ALDI, LIDL, or any other questionable quality food stores.
My chinese friend buys it. You do not want to know what 'in natural juices' means, or how much actual pork is in it.
Well I used to work for Ridpath Pek before it was taken over by Animex and made into Smithfield Foods. Pek Ham is not only sold to "questionable food stores" it is also sold to Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys, Waitrose, Morrisons as well as many small independent food stores and shops.
As for being substandard well that is your opinion. We often received many compliments about our product telling us it was preferred over Spam, although most of these comments came from the North of England. We didn't get as many compliments from the south for some reason only complaints about supplied staining, go figure. Also Pek Ham does not just come from Poland, it is also made in Ireland although the Irish product it not as nice as the import from Poland. I do not usually eat tinned meats as a rule but during my time at Pek I also acted as quality assurance and so got to do taste testing and I have found that I prefer Pek Ham to Spam.
"Natural Juices"... um... I never saw that on the label, it must have been changed since I left so I can't comment on that one. However I can tell you that Pek Ham or Pek Chopped Pork to give it its proper name is made from 100 percent pork. Pek Gold is actually one of the healthiest canned meats that you can purchase as it is 100 percent pork with less then 3 percent fat.
So there you go, that's you told.
PS: Please don't take this seriously; I just feel the need to enlighten everybody into the joys of Pek. I don't know why though. I should hate them. I had a great job at Pek, good money, great people and then Smithfield came along and said they would make me redundant unless I moved to Norwich. So it was bye-bye cushy Job, hello horrible real world. Still at least I had almost 4 months to concentrate on my games collection while I lived of my redundancy money.
Just in case you weren't crazy enough to buy a CDi, like myself, and therefore couldn't take a photo of Philips' unique CDi control pad, I went to the liberty of taking one myself and emailing it to you.
Apologies for the poor quality. [APOLOGY ENTIRELY NECESSARY]
Still, now you can create, oooh, I'd say a good 387 different visual joke gags about how Nintendo's new pad looks exactly like Philips' old pad. And to think, people thought Nintendo and Philips broke up in the 90s, how wrong they were!
I hope this is of some help, I spent a good 5 minutes charging my camera to send this pic.
PS: The flap at the bottom of the pad can be opened to reveal all the CDi buttons, which actually makes it look even MORE like Nintendo's Revolution pad. Do you want me to send another photo showing this? [WE DIDN'T REPLY BUT HE SENT IT ANYWAY, 16 MINUTES LATER]
Here's an image of the CDi pad "open".
The gameplay revolves around having a large number of girls in the fridge. You get them out, look at them for a bit then put them back in the fridge again. You can watch FMV and pretend that you're playing Kriss Kross: Make My Video on the Mega-CD again, but mostly it's all about the fridge.
It's still rubbish though. Maybe if we knew more about Morning Musume (apart from the fact that one of them is cross-eyed and one has spazzy teeth) then the experience would be better for us. This is worse than when they made that movie about vampire goth girls in tight leather fighting warewolves in Matrix style bullet time, and it STILL sucked.
SEGA REINVENTS SONIC THE HEDGEHOG EXPERIENCE FOR NEXT-GENERATION VIDEO GAME PLATFORMS
Gaming Icon to Celebrate 15th Year on PS3 and Xbox 360
SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON (September 9, 2005) - SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. today announced the development of a brand new Sonic title, Sonic The Hedgehog, intended for the PLAYSTATION3 (PS3) computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. SEGA hopes the reinvention of this popular franchise will thrill both the long-time Sonic fans as well as a new generation of gamers with the exciting speed and action only possible on next-generation platforms.
Sonic The Hedgehog for PLAYSTATION3 and Xbox 360 will be developed under the direction of Yuji Naka, award-winning developer known for creating the hugely successful SEGA franchise. With an innovative combination of art, physics and game design, SEGA and Mr. Naka expect to create the most intense sensation of speed ever experienced in videogames. Sonic The Hedgehog for next-gen is expected to ship on multiple platforms in conjunction with the character's 15th anniversary in 2006.
"Sonic The Hedgehog represents the most recognizable example of classic SEGA properties that we will recreate for the PLAYSTATION3 and Xbox 360," said Naoya Tsurumi, CEO of SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. "When Sonic The Hedgehog debuted on the SEGA Genesis in 1991, he reinvented the action-platform genre with speed and attitude. By harnessing the power of these new platforms, we are confident that Sonic will once again raise the bar for action gaming in 2006 and beyond."
"We are proud to re-create our famous friend, Sonic, for a new generation of gamers on PLAYSTATION3 and Xbox 360," said Yuji Naka, R&D Creative Officer, SEGA Corporation. "With Sonic The Hedgehog, we have gone back to our starting point, more than 15-years ago, to reinvent the attitude and speed that made our hero a legend. The 'rebirth of Sonic' will offer an unparalleled sense of speed that is only possible using the processing power afforded by the new systems."
Sonic and his friends are among the most recognizable icons in video games. Since his birth 14 years ago, Sonic The Hedgehog has spanned several generations of video game systems, appearing in over 30 games that have sold more than 38 million units of software. Consistently a top-selling franchise, Sonic The Hedgehog continues to be a popular icon worldwide in 2005 and one of the most recognized and celebrated video game characters of all time. SEGA has decided not to announce product, or release details at this time.

A site about games and game paraphernalia and how nothing's as good as we remember it, probably because we used to inhabit a FANTASY WORLD.
What are we half-heartedly skimming RIGHT NOW?
Each post .02% worse than the last.
THE HTML ERAS
When men used to till the pages by hand.
12 years of wheat and chaff in one vast and impenetrable mass.
Some updates weren't universally hated by the entire world within seconds of being uploaded.
Links to that blog of yours you started up and were excited about for a whole weekend.
Some people we might've MET. Or at least seen in a room and been near.
Other sites we are happy to officially endorse without requiring Adwords spend.
Having one is compulsory, apparently. Ours is here. It is not meant to be funny.
People off the internet. Quality and commitment levels may vary.
It came with the template. Maybe in 2014 we'll jump on board the Twitter train and put that in here. Or a radio. That'd be nice.
