I’m typing this on an iPad, as a train takes me from Edinburgh to York. It’s sixteen minutes late from Edinburgh – I have eight minutes between the original York arrival time and the York departure of the third of four trains which are to take me from Dundee to Redgrave, home. Bloody delays. Advertisements
Time and time again, I see people lauding the likes of Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time as the two best games of all time. Being a PlayStation-only user for most of my life (I’ve had an N64 ever since they could be bought for £10 at car boot […]
Following up from Favourite Games On… PS1, I feel it’s only natural I do one on its successor, the PlayStation 2. Now, I’m sure many would disagree, but in my opinion the PlayStation 2 is the best console that’s been released to date overall. Why?
It is and always has been a touchy subject. For some people, religion is their life. For others, it’s a big part of it. It’s everywhere – in our language (for Christ’s/God’s sake, goddamn, holy [swear word], etc), in our events (Christmas/Hanukah/other, Easter etc), in our buildings (probably 99% of villages, towns and cities have […]
This is an idea I’ve come up with, though I’m sure I’m not the only person to have thought of it. Wherever there are accounts, there are reports of scamming, hacking and stealing. On Facebook, people can have their identities nabbed or false statuses/etc posted under their name. On things like Habbo and Second Life, […]
If there’s one thing that irks me about gaming, it’s the sheer number of ripoffs of other games that exist. I’m not talking about games that are similar to one another (eg any FPS and Doom/Wolfenstein 3D), games that take popular (or even unpopular) games, change a few things then slap it out to the […]
It seems every piece of media in the world gets rated nowadays. Magazines, websites, all sorts of things exist to get reviewed and a number slapped onto them. I’m personally a big magazine fan – I get Official PlayStation Magazine and PC Gamer UK every month, and magazines like PSM3, Xbox 360 World and Official […]
Though it’s been around for a long time, a recent popularity boost seems to have been administered to the “Karma” system – instead of ratings on things, a thumbs up/down system often not only on the primary content of a website, but also on its comments. And it’s a load of crap. Why is this?
Following on from a discussion in Game Jolt, I thought I’d make a blog entry on my favourite PlayStation 1 games. Really fun system, I was just old enough to catch the “first ever *cool* game console!” wave which meant that forever after I just couldn’t enjoy Nintendo’s systems as much. I still do, but […]
Any YoYo Games users reading this will have more than likely read the website’s latest glog entry, on a job offering to work within Game Maker at the YYG Office in Dundee full time. I know for some of you, it’s a very tempting offer – a full time wage to use Game Maker! I […]
