It seems that I have somehow managed to get myself invited onto yet another podcast. This time rather than the assorted randomness that was required to impersonate the myk half of the Thomyk podcasting posse, I was allowed to be myself and witter intelligibly about old games with Matt of Geek Planet. In short: I’ve […]

Everything old is new again

I just read an announcement about the Wii that made me think. I do a lot of thinking. The Wii’s storage worked in an annoying way – not a lot of onboard space for downloaded games, applications and extra game content, but the ability to store things on an SD card. However – no ability […]

The Fuckest Uppest

So this weekend, in amongst the Open House-ing shenanigans and the “lower reaches of Billy’s body” destroying fun of the Freewheel I acquired a copy of the new Star Wars game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, TFU to it’s friends (Spaced reference alert).
