Somehow relevant headline

ZPs: Force Unleashed 2 and Call of Duty: Blagops. XPs: Fallout: New Vegas and Force Unleashed 2. I don't know what it is about the number 2 that it seems like the perfect number of weeks to update on. It always seems to be the moment when my apathy runs out.

Anyway, my desk calendar currently says 'do the laundry'. As well as 'Thursday, November 25th', and that means next Tuesday (the 30th) is trivia quiz night at the Mana Bar again, do come along for a piss-up and a brain-up. I do compile all these quizzes myself in my spare time, not that anyone ever thanks me for it.

In other news, the short story I wrote for the Machine of Death anthology, the tantalisingly titled Exhaustion From Having Sex With A Minor (all the stories are named after a death prediction that factors heavily in the story, you see), has now been released in audio book form as a podcast, read by some dildo called Yahtzee Croshaw. Oh wait, that's me. How embarrassing that I just called them a dildo, because that means I'm calling myself a dildo. Christ, I can't do anything right today. Click here to check it out if you're some kind of scrub who can't even summon the effort to download the PDF version, let alone buy a copy.

  1. Excellent, something to listen to as I fall asleep tonight.

    After duct-taping my girlfriends' mouth shut of course.

  5. Call for a new world war just to get it out of out collective political systems is tasteless and vulgar.

    I applaud you.

  6. I've just finished reading the XP on Force Unleashed 2 and at the end you make a comment about how the giant creatures in FU2 (now there's an unfortunate acronym for a game) and God of War are unrealistic. What is it about Shadow of The Colossus' giant beasties that makes them more realistic, or more appealing, than the behemoths from God of War, Devil May Cry, etc?

    Not trying to call you a hypocrite or have a go - I'm genuinely curious.

  7. Well Thomas it's like asking what's the difference between city 17 and I dunno some other futuristic gaming city. It's just designed and delivered differently. I'm not yahtzee but meh same thing.

  10. Playground rubberized mats are specifically designed to soak up any surprise. Kids generally fall with fun inside a playground region and these types of tiles give them best safety. PLAYGROUND RUBBER MATS
