The Mid-Week Hangover aka Why Did I Think Drinking On A Wednesday Was A Good Idea?

By Jon Partridge on March 15, 2012 8:00 PM | Permalink |

hangover.jpg Alright, when your friends say we're only going for a casual pint, never, ever, ever, believe them. Because you'll be about 6 pints down, on your third Jaegerbomb, and had more than enough shots to get an elephant drunk. And that is why I feel, absolutely, horrible.

So, apart from the aforementioned, here's the highlight of what I've been drinking on this stupid weeknight:

  • Vodka. I have a love/hate relationship with vodka, and last night was more love than hate. But it isn't going to stop me from getting drunk. I was on the Smirnoff, as per usual, and kicked it back in every single style possible. Shots? Yup. Screwdrivers? Yup. With lemonade? Yup. And of course, the infamous vodka and Red Bull. Never change, vodka, you foul, foul beast.
And here's what we've been doing to pass the day:

  • So, that #KONY2012? Dubbed as one of the "most viral videos of all time", and definitely quite controversial amongst viewers, but whatever the hell you think of it, at least check out how these Ugandans react to the video. Eye opening. [Buzzfeed]

  • A possom on a snowboard. Need I say more? [FRONT]

  • Australians that have had their mitts on the new iPad have decided to give a good ol' fashioned tear down for some glorious nerd porn. Mmm silicon. [RedmondPie]

  • My Strange Addiction strikes again, but this time it's even weirder than usual. This lady drinks all the urine that she pees. All of it. Christ, better not give Bear Grylls a call seeing as he's out of a show now. [Gawker]

  • The typical life of a Lamborghini owner. Get your hate ready. [Jalopnik]

  • Get your tissues ready, as this is a real tear jerker. A 17-year-old ear-less bunny, set for super stardom in Germany has, unfortunately, met his tragic demise. Check out the sad story at the link. [The Daily What]
Here's to Friday. You know it's coming.

Wasteland 2 Raised 700k in 2 Days Over On Kickstarter

By Miles Gravin on March 14, 2012 8:30 PM | Permalink |



Wasteland was an old 1988 top-down RPG for the PC, created by the man behind the old Fallout games. It was one of the first RPG's to do a lot of moral choices and variable quest design, like having lots of ways to solve a quest or depending on the skills of your characters. And the creator of the game has been wanting to do a second Wastelanders game for a long time now, but could never get the funding so he made a video on YouTube making awareness of it.

Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection To Release On PSN This Summer

By Arif Aksit on March 14, 2012 2:30 PM | Permalink |


Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection crawls its way in classic zombie fashion to the PSN in June. Capcom have announced that the Wii shooters, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles, will get a HD remake re-release for the Playstation 3 with Move compatibility, as well as Trophies to keep those with OCD busy. At first, the pair of games will be sold together, but eventually you will be able to buy the games separately. The collection features Move compatibility, allowing the same point-and-shoot gameplay as the original rail shooters for the Wii, only this time you'll be waving around a glowing ball.

The collection chronicles (sorry) the Resident Evil franchise into a pair of great arcade-style shooters that give a breath of fresh air to the ageing franchise. If you haven't caught up with the series, or you need something to tide you by until Resident Evil 6 drops in for complete global saturation, give the game a download when it digitally drops this summer.

Check out the press release after the jump, if you feel inclined.

Rumor: Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia To Be Next Downloadable Titles?

By Jon Partridge on March 14, 2012 1:30 PM | Permalink |

shenmue.jpg Dreamcast classics, Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia are known as staples of the short-lived console and have a pretty large cult following. SEGA's Ben Harbone has hinted that these two games could be on their way to a downloadable service near you, telling GameReactor that the two classics "are a couple of our most requested games." And while the company "can't say 'yes' or 'no'" Harbone hints that "we may be working on them."

We can only hope that at least one of these titles makes it's way to current-gen consoles, but it would definitely be amazing if both make their way to our consoles. SEGA have Jet Set Radio on the way to HD consoles this summer, so show some support, buy that, and we might be able to relive Ryo Hazuki's quest in glorious high definition.

So I Went To The Saturday Of The Neurotic Deathfest....

By Arif Aksit on March 14, 2012 12:00 PM | Permalink |

neuroticbanner2012.jpg

...But just the Saturday. Why? Because it had the best line-up of all days. Yeah Friday had a cool line-up, but the only band I really wanted to see was Vomitory as well, but I'll be seeing the other bands soon or I have seen them recently. The Sunday was not very interesting at all. A lot of the bands performed last year as well. I guess I could have hung around the 2nd and 3rd stages, except for Misery Index. I didn't know every band on the Sunday. But in the end I had the time and money for just 1 of the days. So I picked Saturday. Why? Well... read on.

Unity Engine Developers Upping The Game?

By Miles Gravin on March 12, 2012 2:00 PM | Permalink |

Thumbnail image for unity logo.jpgUnity Engine is a open engine that many Indie Developers tend to use due to its easy flexibility and ease of accessing it; although, Unity Engine has its own problems that I tend to see myself.

It lacks the capability and flexibility that engines such and Unreal Engine have. Even though it can have the same quality, it would take more work to get that done, and that's a waste of time to make a shader in a script, than it would take for a drag and drop system to make a shader.

It's about the ease of accessibility, at least in my experience. But the developers seem to be adding more and more to it, hopefully to encourage new users to get behind the Unity wheel.

Read on to check out some thoughts from the guys behind Unity after the break.
