Is a lovely word. And I love the idea of exploring robotics and AI and sentience. And there’s a lovely solid physical quality to the machines in this film (which came out of nowhere for me certainly!) so it’s fair to say I’m looking forward to this immensely.
Offered without comment but with a love of colour & Pixar.
So as those of you noticing things, we have fallen off the world slightly. The Facebook group is trundling on a little bit, but hopefully myself and Jason will start posting a little more.
We had hoped to have a lovely new theme to inspire us, but the real world has meddled with that!
In the mean time, nerdy things. Go watch Guardians of the Galaxy if you haven’t already, watched it the second time yesterday, and still in awe of the popcorny goodness of it :D
We thought about this for a while, and the unfortunate overwhelming spam attack we had made us really think about whether forums were appropriate anymore, and we’ve decided with them being used so sparsely to drop having them at all. You can still find everyone in the Facebook group and post on the articles here.
Hopefully without the forums to worry about we’ll return to a more regular update schedule (rather than none at all).
We’ve unfortunately had some heavy spamming stuff going on. So we’ve taken down the forum access for now (still there just locked away).
We’re still about on Facebook though :)
I realise this isn’t exactly news about gaming or other geekery, but I feel this worthy of a news posting because without this man, we simply would not be here today. And in case you did not know who this man was (WTF!?), he is essentially the father of computer science and was crucial in helping the UK and its allies to defeat Nazi Germany by cracking their secret codes.
This caught me by surprise, I knew very little about it, and I loved Cloud Atlas by the Wachowskis so I’m rather hopeful for this film – plus I love my grand space opera so yes, rather excited.
Yes, it had that intro. Lovely it was too.
Bit late (last week of NaNoWriMo consumed me) but my thoughts on the 50th special of Doctor Who are below.
Overall I thought it was actually excellent, I had (deliberately) set my expectations very low, as there was huge pressure from all sides to deliver something stunning which meets fans expectations, the BBC’s own expectations – and to a larger extent all the other people who casually drop in and out wondering what the fuss is all about.
Spoilers. To obviously and inevitably quote River.
Command & Conquer: Renegade is an often forgotten part of the C&C series. Whilst we all remember the first Tiberium Wars and Red Alert and their subsequent sequels, Renegade seldom gets mentioned. I must admit I never played it that much even though I quite enjoyed it, but at the time I never had the cash to buy the game. Soon though, you will be able to play it again but in a modern graphics engine in the form of Renegade X.
The Mandate caught my eye a few days ago and media interest has significantly grown around it these last few days, with people like TotalBiscuit and Angry Joe endorsing it. Taking a look myself I too find myself very intrigued at the possibilities of this game. The Mandate is a sandbox RPG in space where you captain a Mandate starship with a full crew that you must recruit, nurture and command properly in performing your duty as Captain of this starship.
