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. Having the office […]

  • In Search of Seoul, Part 3 – The Outside

    Although we spent most of our time around Seoul and Seongnam, we did venture out and explore more of the countryside and mountains. Who knew there was anything to do outside of Seoul? The capital is where everyone wants to be, evidenced by the absurdly high population density and endless rows of imposing apartment blocks. […]

  • In Search of Seoul, Part 2 – Westernisation

    The clock struck 4am, and I was out of bed. There was no way I was getting back to sleep; my body was still in another timezone. I got up, tidied the kitchen, baked a loaf of bread, and had breakfast. This was going to be a strange week. Yes, jet lag is a bitch. […]

Our tent still stands thankfully, and should last till the end of the camp. The rain didn’t seem to stop anyone from heading to gamescom today, so the lines […]

  • On the first day of Gamescom…

    Here I am, stuck in the wifi tent again as it buckets down outside. I couldn’t believe that after such a ridiculously hot day we would get a rain storm this bad. The lightning is pretty cool, but the thought that our tent is on the brink of collapse or flooding is plaguing my mind. […]

  • 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 […]
