A little something on the side

Nothing really to update this week. Been rather busy with Christmas preparations (I really hate this part of the year!) and looking at Noel at the moment gets me depressed. There are so many pinholes on her, I’ll be working on her for ages to get those sorted out. The parts are a complete mess! […]

Hell or Heaven? Probably hell…

Back to Hong Kong for this weeks post where I’ll be posting up photos of a rather impromptu meetup which occurred while I was there. For one evening Q, Adun50, Coffeebugg, Avan Pang and myself got together for an evening and mingled. We spent some time at the infamous Sino Centre in Mong Kok where […]

Return from the wilderness

Did ya miss me?


Well, who cares about that? For those who are curious, the reason for the lack of updates for the past few weeks was because I was in Hong Kong. TBH, it wasn’t a great trip. I did manage to have some fun times but there was also a fair […]

Project: Vermillion (Part 1)

So I’ve finally gotten her to a stage where I think it’s OK to show her off.

Having said that, Putting her together has shown that she’s going to be exceptionally tricky to complete and the weight distribution is pretty poor. Going to probably need an additional base as an anchor…

Overall, it wasn’t […]

Returning to a Distant World

Wow, has it already been 12 months? This time last year some friends and I went to the Royal Albert Hall and were treated to a wonderful evening of music courtesy of the royal philharmonic orchestra as part of the first show of distant worlds in the UK! Back then, the concert opened with the […]

Mini Review: XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Given that this game has pretty much taken over all my spare time since I got it, a mini review had to be on the cards.

Well, what is there to say? This is a remake of a classic PC game from the early 90s, one which I played briefly on the PS1 and […]

Here come a few new Challengers!

You’d think that, after nearly a month since I posted about my next project, I’d have something to show for it… Well, I don’t. I place the blame mostly on the frustrating but excellent XCOM: Enemy Unknown but there’s also the fact that it’s simply a big task to clean up the parts. Progress has […]

Anime Roundup: Autumn 2012

Maybe it’s due to the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having but it really doesn’t feel like we had an autumn. Heck, it’s coming up to November and it’s still nowhere near cold enough to be called winter! Anyway, with the (invisible) change in seasons, we also get a new set of anime shows! The […]

Mini Review: Dead or Alive 5

It was bound to happen. Ever since it was announced, this game was going to be part of my collection and after my impressions of the alpha demo, my excitement got pretty big! Then came the not so good stuff; changes to the powerblow into a comeback mechanic, 4 point counter system, etc. But after […]

Eurogamer Expo 2012

It’s that time of year again, when I meet up with other members of the Destructoid group and play video games at the Eurogamer Expo!! admittedly, the floor this year was a little bare compared to previous years in terms of games I wanted to play, but there was still enough to keep me […]
