The Grandfather of Gaming...

The Grandfather of Gaming

In just a couple of decades, video games have changed beyond all recognition. From waiting for hours for our cassette to load up a simple, buggy and ridiculously ugly game on our state of the art Amiga, Commodore 64 or Amstrad in the 1980′s, we now have games consoles with complex and beautiful games, processors more powerful than our PCs and better graphics than our TVs.
Over the years, Ni…

So you want to Design Games?

I often wonder if I should have applied for a game design degree….  I completed a degree in Software Engineering nearly 10 years ago with the idea being that maybe I could get a job in the video game industry one day, it never quite worked out like that for me, I ended up in web development. Now more than ever their appear to be a range of game design courses around, specialising in training to work spe

Hydro Thunder Hurricane Review...

Hydro Thunder Hurricane Review

About 6 months ago I gave in to some nostalgic urges and bought a Nintendo 64, complete with my two favourite games, Goldeneye and Star Wars Episode I: Racer. After about 10 minutes of playing Star Wars I realised I’d remembered it through rose tinted glasses and that N64 hasn’t been touched since. If I’d known Hydro Thunder Hurricane was on its way, I wouldn’t have bot…

Crackdown 2 Review

This article comes courtesy of Felix Kemp, Staff Writer at…, a leading UK gaming blog.

World Cup 2010 Night In

Seeing as the World Cup is now fully in swing, I decided to take advantage of T-Mobile’s Night In Offer… and rent out FIFA South Africa 2010 (plus a Blu Ray to watch with my girlfriend) and some snacks all for a fiver.  I’m not usually a massive fan of football games, but recently we’ve been having some get togethers and FIFA 10 has overtaken Modern Warfare 2 as the game of cho

Stream Video to Xbox 360 from Ubuntu...


I’m really pleased with ubuntu, I definitely don’t think that I would go back to Windows, at least not for the time being. Between the amazing selection of free software and the Wine I can run everything that I need and a lot more.
The one thing that Windows did do well (most of the time) was to stream video and audio to the xbox 360. There’s a few solutions out there, but I thought I…
