You Can do Better Than a Midnight Launch

by Craig Ballard - on Nov 13th 2009 - 3 Comments


I don’t care what you say, humans are the smartest being in the planet. So smart in fact the we evolved ourselves to have thumbs, yeah thumbs to pick up biscuits with, no need to pick it up with our teeth like your dog, we got thumbs bitch. I’ll like to see a dolphin try and explain physics. Ha fuck off dolphins, you aren’t all that smart all you can do is teach your own to survive. We on the other hand teach that and tons of other useless stuff we don’t actually need. But if the people at the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 midnight launch was anything to go by then we are actually in fact below every other animal in existence.

Midnight launches are the geekiest and possibly the saddest thing you could ever do outside of cosplay. Waiting outside your local game store in the freezing cold just so you can be one of the first to play a game someone smart enough to pre-order online and receive the day before. Well I’m one of those idiots. So far I’ve been to 2 midnight launches here in jolly old Liverpool, first being Resident Evil 5 and the other Modern Warfare 2. It’s nothing like all the glam you expect in launches in the likes of London or New York, all the freebies and many minor celebrities promoting games they only heard about from their agents. So games where you play a racist killing people in Africa and another where you blow up airports and slaughtering children with a butter knife. (more…)

What Games Cure a Hangover?

by Craig Ballard - on Oct 23rd 2009 - 5 Comments

You wake up, ready to start the new day. As soon as you raise out of bed you get smashed on head with a hammer, followed by a rat eating the inside of your stomach and finally you’ve realise this whole time you’ve been on teacup ride that just doesn’t stop spinning. Welcome to my Friday mornings. I honestly don’t know why I do this to myself every week, it always seems fun on the Wednesday. When will I ever learn. The same problem arises everytime, should I stay in bed and sleep that hangover off or actually get up and risk doing something. On the days I don’t decide to be lazy I’m left with the decision on what to do to get rid of this hangover, other than the usual remedies of water, paracetamol and bacon, it’s a waiting game. And what’s a better time waster than a good video game. This idea occured to me the other morning. What is the best game to play to cure a Hangover? (more…)

Launch it up Mate

by Craig Ballard - on Oct 13th 2009 - 1 Comment


Well well well, it’s launch week, everything in my life has been boiled down to this very moment. No of course not, the past month has been absolute hell for me, the hardest semester of the year is underway, and worse of all I have no internet. Our landlord has put it upon himself to not set up the internet in our beloved house yet, so basically my source of the net comes from the university library a place with a constant smell of burnt rubber. My gaming has decreased more than usual and I’m so out of loop in the industry that if someone told me Gears of War 3 will go multi-platform I would probably believe them. Not a good start as an editor for a gaming blog site. (more…)
