WWE Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania...
So I’ve been watching an awful lot of WWE over the last few weeks. In fact, as I’m writing this I’m watching the Big Show going ballistic on SmackDown. While I’ve enjoyed wrestling since pretty much this point in 2000 when I used to watch WWE Heat on Channel 4 (those were the days), I have an on and off relationship with actually watching what’s going on. Mostly...
How To "Fix" Games Journalism
There’s been a lot of talk recently about what’s wrong with games “journalism” (I don’t always like the term journalism, but it works as a nice shorthand) and how it can be improved. Now I don’t necessarily buy that the field really needs much improvement, as with all forms of writing there are good and bad examples. There is the problem that some of the worse...
lauraisnotanexplora: fuzzytypewriter: magpieandwhale:teaandmischief:marielikestodraw:thenizu:willowmansdaughter:alexmerry: Ian McKellen should be the voice of everything ever. Probably the single most badass thing about this is that he doesn’t crack himself the fuck up. Not so much as a single traitorous, unbidden upturn in the corner of his mouth. You, Sir, you’re marvellous. ...
Full of rage at development. This is all. UPDATE: Actually that’s not all. I want to develop something. Just need to work out what. Where’s Daniel when I need him?
Jurassic Park Theme (1000% Slower) →
wardrox: There seems to be an interesting increase in the number of times I’m listening to the incredibly peaceful result of music being slowed down.
Racers know Gran Turismo 5 is a simulator Obviously, most critics didn’t get...– PSX Extreme, Ben Dutka: Ben’s Week In Review: December 12th [December 11th, 2010] I’ve replaced the bold in Dutka’s quote with underlines, as Tumblr’s quotes are usually all-bold on the site anyway. I’m tempted to just called Dutka a cockmongering thundercunt and leave it at that. I’m tempted to...

Best Thing Today: Getting advice from my parents Worst Thing Today: Feeling super ill Random Thing Today: Room spinning, although I guess that couples with the worst thing.
Best, Worst, Random: 13th December
Best Thing Today: Good conversations with a few people about various mildly secret things. Bad Thing Today: Hurt my wrist at football again, will probably need wrist supports for when I play. Random Thing Today: Having @colossalblue edit an article of mine to include a caveman reference. Bizarre.

Best, Worst, Random: December 11th

Best, Worst, Random: 12th Dec
Best, Worst, Random: December 10th
Best Thing Today: Fish and chips, pretty tasty. Followed up with a little Def Jam Rapster which I guess isn’t awful. Worst Thing Today: Pretty bad day overall, but exceptional stress is high up along with URF dinner being canned. Random Thing Today: Managing to get my toy Allosaurus to cling to the radiator (although he seems to have fallen off now).
Best, Worst, Random: December 9th
Best Thing Today: Built a lovely spreadsheet for TSA, it has a picture of a Triceratops in it. Worst Thing Today: Accidentally overwrote the original images when I was doing some batch conversion. Random Thing(s) Today: Brilliant documentary on stats on the BBC (thanks @cc_star). Shocked at price of Apatosaurus on Amazon, although I guess it’s pretty big. Think the neck posture is wrong...
Ok so earlier on Davs was asking about my gaming backlog and gave some games I might want to play. So here’s my actual backlog along with games it’s been suggested I play. Note this is a backlog, so if it’s fairly new I’m not counting it. Games I Own Bioshock - Had this donated from Peter a while ago, on the understanding that I wouldn’t actually like it. I tried it...
Ok so for those of you who don’t know I used to do a podcast called Second Nature. There’s rumblings that it may return soonish, but I don’t want to say too much about that in case it doesn’t. I also really need a pop guard, so if someone wants to buy me one that’d be good. The old one got moldy, don’t ask. Anyway on Second Nature I used to drink a lot of...
POPPY thinks it’s fascinating that a solar-powered plane has flown through the...– I took this from todays’ The Sun paper. For those of you that don’t know, The Sun is a redtop tabloid from News International, the people that make up the news that you read, watch, or listen to. Every day they have a item on Page 3, where basically a young girl gets her pretties out for men to...

So those of you who don’t know, I do some writing over at a little site called TheSixthAxis. In fact as of tomorrow (Monday) I’m taking up the role of Features Editor. This is a step up from my current position Content Manager, and largely means I should probably do things now. Things that I promised to do anyway, but never got round to them. So why didn’t I do them? Well I was...
Wainwright Talks Portable Gaming →
So ever since I met Lauren Wainwright at a Halo: Reach beta preview a few months ago I’ve been a fan of her writing. She’s a genuinely talented writer, always puts out enjoyable content and a very nice person in real life. (Sadly I was kind of a jerk shortly after the event, but I think this has been forgiven, if it’s even remembered by her). Anyhow she wrote a piece on portable...
Tricked Into Tumblr
So basically before I knew what I was doing I’m signed up to Tumblr. I just added an answer to the question that Wardrox asked, and Tumblr asked me if I wanted to sign up. I don’t know what I’ll really do with the account now, perhaps I can find something if I try hard enough. I assume most of you know about me, but perhaps I should talk about me more. Maybe I’ll do that...
