Blogger Recognition Award

Don’t Even Think About It, Kanye……

Right away, I’d like to thank Anidaan over at The Moral of the Story both for the nomination, and for the exceptionally kind words that came with it. If you haven’t already, you should totes check the place out, because it’s quite impressive. As somebody who constantly analyses and dissects narratives anyway, I was immediately taken with Anidaan’s ability to do it with Video Games (and other stuff too), and it’s always interesting reading what he took from a particular experience. Sometimes it’ll be something that I missed entirely and his insights, and his skill in delivering them, are always rewarding to read. Continue reading “Blogger Recognition Award”

Liebster Award Nomination

Ok, if you’re one of the two or three people who read this place you may’ve noticed I’ve not, like, posted anything for a while. For that I apologise – I had a friend visiting for a bit, and he didn’t seem too keen on just sitting inside and watching me play video games having forked out for a plane ticket to Brazil and whatnot. Some people, eh!?

Anyways, having fallen out of the habit of writing I was genuinely struggling for ideas and inspiration when, lo and behold, I was nominated for this by Particlebit, which was incredibly fortuitous and rather superb timing – so many thanks for that. I’m a big fan of his place anyways, so this was quite the honour. Continue reading “Liebster Award Nomination”

Weekend Gaming Doodah #14

Boo – yah! The weekend has arrived and another working week is in the books. Gone. Done. So long, and thanks for all the fish. As it so often does, the weekend probably means quality Gaming time for you, perhaps finished off with the next episode of a certain little TV show that features some dragons and Lord Commanders who couldn’t give a flying fuck about how, like, death works an’ shit. Truly we live in a joyous age. This is our time, fellow nerds. Our time! Continue reading “Weekend Gaming Doodah #14”

Weekend Gaming Doodah #13

It’s the weekend. Woo, and indeed, hoo! We survived another week, we made it – in your face, “The Man”! Alarm clocks off, fantabulous game-playing machines ON! Real world ejected, Game Worlds inserted! In short; go fuck yourself reality world!

So, what are your weekend Gaming plans? What Games will you be diving into as you leave the drudgery of the working week behind? Continue reading “Weekend Gaming Doodah #13”

Weekend Gaming Doodah #12

See, normally there’d be some “joke” about it finally being Friday here, but I’ma level with you, I’m currently enjoying a four day weekend. My Friday was Wednesday, but I figured I’d wait until Friday afternoon to post this because, in all honesty, nobody likes to have anybody else’s good fortune rubbed in their face.

You’re welcome.

Anyways, now that we’re approaching the point when everybody’s getting their weekend on, let’s do this. What are your weekend plans, folks? Continue reading “Weekend Gaming Doodah #12”

Games That Could Be Awesome(er) With Live Action Episodes

Having just played Quantum Break, and having actually quite enjoyed Remedy’s mixed-media experiment, I gotz to thinking about how that exact element might just add a little som’thin-som’thin to other games I’ve played. Obviously Remedy built the Quantum Break experience knowing it would be a factor, so they planned for it (using actors, not voice-over actors, for example), and they had the whole ‘consequences playing out in the TV episodes’ thing going on, but what if we could use the Quantum Break Time Machine – not to fix heinous injustices or make the whole world a better place (bor-ing!) – but to improve our favourite games by arriving from the future and showing their developers some mixed media futuristic magic. I mean, that’d be awesome, right!? Continue reading “Games That Could Be Awesome(er) With Live Action Episodes”

Weekend Gaming Doodah #11

Wowsers this week was a long one; like, will-somebody-please-just-kill-me-now kind of long. Honestly, I haven’t been this happy to see a week fuck the fuck off in quite some time, and me and this weekend are going to be all different kinds of special relationship-ey to make up for the last five days. Not in a weird way, obviously, but in an ‘I’ma grab the opportunity to play games relatively undisturbed and free from distractions’ kind of one! Oh, happy day. Oh, happy day!

Anyways, enough about me. What are your Gaming-related plans for this fine weekend? Continue reading “Weekend Gaming Doodah #11”

Monday Morning Procrastination Pack #9

Honestly, how is it Monday again? It seems like five minutes ago that I was getting all giddy and shit because it was Friday! Still, them’s the breaks, and until we crack the whole ‘army of robots doing everything for us’ thing, Mondays are always going to be a pain the ass. Obviously, the army of robot thing might lead to a Skynet scenario like in that documentary ‘Terminator’, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, eh!? Continue reading “Monday Morning Procrastination Pack #9”

Weekend Gaming Doodah #10

It’s the weekend, work can jog the fuck on for two whole days, and our favourite games are ready and waiting to be given the time and attention they deserve. In short, we’re at the bit in the work/play cycle that’s, like, good an’ shit. Trebles all round!

So, what’s your bit of the work/play cycle that’s “good an’ shit” looking like this time? Are you taking the opportunity to start something new, or are you itching to get back to something you’ve already put a lot of time and effort in to. Are you going to go batshit cray-cray and try both – maybe turning it up to 11 and fitting in some writing too!? Continue reading “Weekend Gaming Doodah #10”
