22 days

Yes, twenty-two days without a post on here – some kind of record. A very bad record. I have time on the PC, but I have no idea where to start with anything, and I feel I have so much to do. And there’s no telling how long it is …

Timely Friday update

Hey, I’m going to do a Friday update on a Friday for a change! I’m in the front room watching Jake while he sleeps rather than writing it in my study as usual, using my video-recoding laptop rather than the familiar keyboard on the main PC… I’ve never used this …

Musings

I’m just sitting here on a sunny Saturday afternoon, at the PC with a green tea and a couple of biscuits, editing the next series of Sonic games (Sonic 2, for those of you who care), thinking to myself that I’ve not really written anything that wasn’t a Friday update …

Bi-yearly update 2014

Hey, this is going to be an epic update, a half-year special so to speak. I’m going to go back and take a look at the targets I made at the start of the year and see how I’m doing with them. With regards to the Fitness Targets – I’ve …

Friday update 9/5/14

We went and had another little listen to Flipper’s heartbeat this week – it’s so fast! And at one point there was a thud, which the midwife said was most probably a kick. Tonight is my last night in the study before it becomes Flipper’s room – well, the last …

How to play Minecraft

So, Jane’s Xbox (360 – but do I really need to clarify that?) is downstairs, and Lewis has taken to playing Minecraft on it while Ethan watches. At first, a few months ago, it was Skyrim – but after Myrtle saw a person behead another person it was banned while …

Friday Update 6/12/13

I wasn’t going to do an update this week, as I usually do them on a Thursday night after work and post them early Friday morning, or schedule them for early Friday morning if I fancy an early night, but after the day I had, I was not in the …

Costume Quest

This was originally posted on the now-defunct Random Fury! videogame blog. The premise behind Costume Quest is bewitchingly simple: Kids dress up in Halloween costumes which then become hyper-realistic in combat scenarios. For example, one of the costumes is a blue robot. When roaming around the overworld, it appears to …

Super Puzzle Platformer

This was originally posted on the now-defunct Random Fury! videogame blog. This week I am playing… Super Puzzle Platformer. It’s a game by Andrew Morrish, and it’s a bit of a mash-up. As the title suggests, it’s both puzzle and platform. Well, to be more accurate, it’s a platform game …

Super Hot

This was originally posted on the now-defunct Random Fury! videogame blog. http://superhotgame.com/ Here’s the concept: In this game, time only moves when you do. You are dropped into a super-stylised world (which I thought was very Mirror’s Edge), and large, caps locked words immediately bark instructions at you – and …
