Apologies for the late link, I honestly think my brain has taken a holiday without me knowing. It’s been a busy week… Read my The Binding Of Isaac review on GamingDaily.co.uk and quell before this disturbing, violent and thought-provoking rogue-like. Then buy it and have your own mind gently broken by the madness of it all. Seriously, it’s only four quid, and I promise you won’t get this kind of entertainment for less anywhere else.
Failing that, go watch “The Human Centipede” for a similar, if less interactive effect.
(Don’t. That was a joke. Do not under any circumstances watch that movie… just… don’t…)

When are you too old for gaming? Is it when you turn from mainstream games to niche imperialistic warfare sims? Or when you realise that Bus Simulator 2011 actually looks quite good? Or is it just something that happens overnight that leaves you feeling dazed, confused and desperate for some agricultural action (LS09 Landwirtschafts simulator 2009? Oh yeah…)?
Or is it when all your opponents turn into snot-faced kids and beat you senseless with their lunchboxes, making your blood pressure reach boiling point?
This train of thought has been rattling around my head since an unfortunate event last night, and I have yet to come up with a rational response. Read on, and pity me… « Read the rest of this entry »

My bloody, gore-fueled vacation in the tropical island paradise of Dead Island was an interesting one. So interesting in fact, that I spontaneously burst into a song about how tragic life as a zombie must be, and how suicide by whiskey isn’t the answer… Thankfully, that song is now buried under several days of cuddling puppies and playing Hello Kitty Online… but even now the bitter after-taste still lingers. I hate holidays, especially when they require rabies-shots, chain-mail, and a blunt object that you can get a good swing with.
Anyway, the trip has been documented, with all the blood, dismemberment and bikinis you could hope for. Go read at GamingDaily.co.uk.
PS. Would have sent a post-card, but a zombie ate my pen. Sorry about that.
