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


  • Almost There (Ordinary Decent Office)

    I haven’t been feeling well and have run out of time this evening so this will be a quick update with a more in depth post later. My thumb survived at least. Almost There The office project is nearing completion. It has been over a year since I demolished those terrible bookcases in anger, and […]

  • Hello Gamescom 2011!

    Yes, the time is finally nigh! I’m sitting in the wifi tent at the Gamescom camp, in sunny rainy Cologne, Germany waiting for the general public opening tomorrow. Hopefully the weather will improve for the rest of the weekend as my tent (shared with Alan, my brother) is not built for any inclement weather whatsoever. It […]
