The Re-Return Tour Of 2013

The time has come. Tomorrow we’re going on our vacation but not to some exotic — and Mediterranean — place oh no. No, we’re going to a place which is colder and harsher than where we’re now.

I’m of course talking about The Land of Thousand Lakes, and Ten-Thousand Mosquitoes per Lake, Finland. Finland, you cold inhospitable bastard. Or maybe I should say “kylmä ja karu paskiainen”?

Buying A Bad Bag Of Briquettes

We all know how this goes by now. I tell you to avert your eyes, warn you of the horrors that await if you don’t heed my advise. But you of course never listen. Ignoring my threats of face-melting and sterility you muster onward like the little reader that could. So, I’m not even going to bother.

I Really Want To Be A Dirty Pirate

As you might remember, I wasn’t very impressed with Feet-tickler’s Assassin’s Creed III. The ham fisted exposition and severe lack of actual assassinations — too few and far apart — made me feel like I was playing something… less assassin-y than the title would suggest. Which is like if Farming Simulator 2013 was a game about watching crop grow and nothing else.

Our Remastered Hero Of Oakvale Returns

Wow, it’s been — soon anyway — 10 years since the first Fable game was released. Remember? The one they actually released for PC as well. Not that I’m holding a grudge or anything. No really. I mostly played it on the original Xbox but I’ve heard rumours that they’re making the re-mastered edition an Xbox One Exclusive.

I remember the original Fable game fondly and in honour of Lionhead Studios impending release of the re-mastered Fable: The Lost Chapters, titled Fable Anniversary I though I would play the original, except on PC this time. Steam’s — by now infamous — Summer Sale is on and you can get Fable: The Lost Chapters for a measly £3.49.

A Not Review Of Man Of Steel

I was originally going to write a — sort of — review about “Man of Steel”, or as I would like to call it, “Meh of Steel”… because… well… I thought it was kind of “meh”. But then I got bored of that and decided on not writing it. I also figured that there’s plenty of reviews out there and I really don’t have anything further to add to it.

Warning: Spoilers!

And Another Thing…

“Apparently” some readers where disappointed by my “Living From A Suitcase” post. “Apparently” I didn’t divulge enough information. “Apparently” some people are just never happy. But one aims to please, so here I am again.

The Weavers Of Nightmares

I’m sure we can all agree that some things are better left unseen. But since I’ve seen them I think it’s better that you see them too, since we’re such good friends, right? It’s like that saying, “A problem shared is a blah blah”, I forget the rest.

But here I am, sharing my problem anyway.

Living From A Suitcase

I want you to imagine the following scenario; Someone drops a suitcase in front of you and tell you to fill it with your most priced possessions. Whatever you can fit into that one suitcase, you can take with you as you move to a new life, in a new country. Everything else, you have to give/sell or throw away.
