If gaming isn’t a part of your life, you’re doing it wrong.


  • Spooky Times at Newforge High

    We were away in South Korea over the Halloween period so I didn’t end up putting together the customary “making of” post. Halloween has been and gone, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy spooky things. If you haven’t already seen it, check out this year’s Newforge Studios horror flick, Desperation.

We try to put together a film for halloween, we’ve been pretty successful other than the odd year missed. This year Evie […]

  • The Ordinary Decent Office, and Other Nonsense

    I was back in Northern Ireland for a short trip hence the lack of writing last time, but this one is coming to you from inside the new Ordinary Decent HQ. I thought I should take some photos with my camera as I find my phone rarely does a scene justice unless lighting conditions are […]
