Thomas Samuel Bennett is just this guy, you know?
He loves playing video games, watching REALLY BAD films, listening to a hugely eclectic variety of music and LEARNING THINGS!

In his spare time, he creates music for film, game and animation. Which is cool, because he also animates and edits film every now and then. Currently, he is working on his own side-scrolling adventure game, but he has never done this before, so it's taking ages.

Some notes from the man himself;

When I think about my earliest living memory, it is always of me playing Danger Mouse on the Spectrum, and I suppose in a way because of that I was pretty much predestined to grow up loving video games.
I played games like Seymour (and later the Dizzy series), Rick Dangerous, Wizball, Nebulus, Onslaught and many other titles spanning the Spectrum, Atari and Windows 3.11 systems. I still have most of these, too.
Of course, technology moves quicker and quicker as time goes by, and the games industry has always endeavored to be on the cutting edge of that technology. To this end, as an avid (but not very wealthy) gamer, I did my best to keep up and, despite being a few years behind the contemporary, still managed to have a great time playing games that to me were new and amazing and to others were old hat and dated.
My point is this - nowadays, I have access to most games and systems at the time of release, and at the current rate that these games are being produced at, there will never be a time when there won't be something groundbreaking or sensational in the works - but in spite of this, I still love the old games that I grew up on, not because of how advanced they were, but because of how fun they are - and I can't wait to see what happens in the future of technology.

Toybox Turbos (PS3, Xbox 360, PC (Tentatively))
Developer: Codemasters Racing Studio
Publisher: Codemasters Racing Studio

Price: £11.99

Release Date: TBC

Codemasters Racing Studio have just released this new trailer for the upcoming "Toybox Turbos" from their digital team. From what I understand, this will be available on Steam, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 (as digital download) and from the looks of things, it's basically micro machines.

It looks like there's going to be a pretty varied array of vehicles and maps, with 35 vehicles and 16 maps in total. I think it's fair to say how that goes down will depend on the quality of the tracks themselves, although at the £11.99 pricepoint, I don't think it's a bad deal at all - especially when you consider the lack of content in F1 Race Stars for more than double the price a couple years back. 

I for one am pretty excited for something other than mario kart to fill the local multiplayer arcade racing gap in my game collection, so I'm hoping I get to try this out pretty soon! No news on a release date though, unfortunately, so I guess we will just have to keep an eye on it.

More as I know it!

The Theatrhythm contest is well under way now with the submissions page being open, and i'm getting curious to see what people are coming up with!

I really hope more people share their submissions with us. I bet there's some really amazing and talented people cracking out entries like wildfire right now - and, like I said in the last post - it would be a shame not to share it.

In a bid of encouragement, I'm sharing my latest effort at a submission.

Please, enjoy. 

I wanted to enter the Theatryhthm Final Fantasy contest, and I wanted to get the recording out of the way early - only, I misinterpreted the competition and ended up doing a completely different song to the Main Theme that we were supposed to be doing. So, rather than letting this whole debacle go to waste, I'd like to share with you the end result of what I am now considering a practice session.

Here it is: a minute and a half rendition of Final Fantasy IX - You Are Not Alone

Let this be a lesson to you - before you spend an entire afternoon on something, make sure you're doing it right.

So it looks like a teaser video has recently surfaced up on them there interwebs that may pertain to upcoming news on a possible sequel to a certain popular racing sim? Who can say?

Oh, come on. It's pretty obvious what this is. Speculate away!
