A place to put anything and everything I find entertaining. From movies to video games, and quite a few things in-between.
So I continued experimenting with my experimental iPhone game from over a week ago. In the video below you can see the progress I have made. I added a very simple graphic for the character you are protecting. I thought this was a good indicator of the art style I will likely go for. I created a level structure, so that you can have different levels with different waves of enemies I create a method for creating different types of [...]
Not entirely sure how this happened but I was recently invited to be an Xbox 360 ambassador. What does this mean? Well I have been asked to write a couple of blog posts and post some tweets about Xbox. The reason for becoming an ambassador is to promote the new Xbox 360 dashboard functionality that turns your Xbox from a pure games console, into a full blown media hub.

I recently got sent some more iTunes movies to review. I like getting free stuff and, as you can tell from the post titles, these were good'uns Paul Paul is the latest film from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and the only one to feature a potty mouthed alien.

George RR Martins Game of Thrones series is probably my favorite book series ever. The stories are described as fantasy for people who don't do fantasy, and I couldn't agree more. When you read the books the stories are played perfectly straight - there is no ridiculousness everyone behaves as you would imagine, but [...]
Let's get this out of the way quickly. Yes this is Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass, but it's not the Bourne Identity. Not close. One similarity the two films share is the shaky cam stylings. It's everywhere, even more so than the Bourne films. Thankfully this doesn't bother me at all but I know a couple of people who have issues with motion sickness and I'm pretty sure this would have triggered it rather quickly. From a factual point of [...]
