Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
First in-game footage of Neppers. Sorry for the rubbish video quality. Youtube is murderous. Will keep people posted once I get a high-quality version online somewhere.
The Telegraph hilariously misrepresents already flawed study in piece of sensationalist bollocks that would make even red-tops cringe.
That's my initial reaction to the article, anyway. I've managed to track down the journal this research was printed in, and I'm about to read the whole document. Back in half an hour...
Right. A few things strike me.
Are Barrington Harvey being paid by some sort of Government anti-piracy initiative or something?
Or is it just that the publishers they work with are keen for them to point out that PIRACY IS BAD, HMMKAY?
Seriously. I subscribe to BH's press release feed for journalistic purposes, but I'm not a sensationalist tabloid reporter. Generally, I'd like to find out about the games you're supposed to be promoting, not stuff like this. Every bloody day I seem to be getting another email from them regarding this issue. Stop it.
Any other UK journos noticed this new trend?
Utterly brilliant Fear 2 trailer that's just been released:
We'll do away with the ridiculous acronym right from the get-go. Fear was an interesting game. It started sublimely, but didn't move much beyond its opening hour. What was left was a fairly bland and particularly grey corridor shooter, saved by blistering action sequences and some genuinely surprising jump-moments.
Someone just addressed a very formal job-related email, sent to the generic firstname.lastname@example.org, as:
That's either just weird, or this person has a fantastic sense of humour. Either way, I like it.
Michael Samyn from the wonderful Tale of Tales brings my (and others') attention to the proposed piece of legislation that led to Sony cancelling their EU release of lackluster horror title Rule of Rose. Its quality aside, there's an issue here. Beyond the link below is the body of a motion by an Italian MP. I don't know if it actually passed, but the controversy led to Sony deciding it wasn't worth the hassle of releasing Rule of Rose anyway, and the proposed EU release was canned.
Here you go.
