  • Responsibility and Critical Thinking

    I’m going to start off with an apology. So here it is: Apologies that this one is going to be a little bit ranty. That’s it, the only apology you are going to get. So what’s got my goat? In plain and simple terms, People not taking responsibility for their actions. Here’s an example, I’m […]

  • Musing: Your Teammates might not be idiots after all….

    We’ve all been there, you’re playing a multiplayer game and one of your team mates does something inexplicably stupid. During a game of CounterStrike:GO,which I realise isn’t the friendliest multiplayer game by a AWP long shot, I ended up butting heads with my Russian teammate who assumed I was some kind of idiot as I […]

  • In Defence of “Legend of the Seeker”

The release date came and I decided against the purchase, but […]

  • Unleashing The Inner Geek.

    I’ve always been pre-destined to become a bit of a Gaming Geek. Members of my family enjoyed Role-Playing games on a Sunday, and I’ve not infected the wife with an interest in board games. I have an interest in tinkering with electrical items, and thanks to the commodore 64 I had a very early fascination […]

  • “Type Amen” Bullshit on Facebook

    Firstly, fair warning that the below post may be slightly ranty(is that even a word?) and will definitely include content that will upset. Still here? I was perusing Facebook the other day and I occasionally get those ridiculous “Like for a prayer or say Amen” kind of posts.I don’t follow them but they occasionally appear […]

    After getting Braindead addicted to Borderlands 2 (sorry Mrs Braindead),  We felt he should play the original so we are doing a play through of Borderlands 1 every Sunday morning. About 6 levels in however the Catch-a-ride wouldn’t let us carry on….
