About
Well apart from all the usual dull stuff that most 24 year old scottish guys do I'm going to be starting uni in sepetember, I'm going to abertay in dundee to study computer game technology. I just really hope it will be more useful than my physics degree.

Oh and I'm a bit of a liberal socialist nutjob which means I find more things offensive than Christians do but I can turn the other cheek... most of the time. If you ever see me calling anyone a neo-fascist bastard I'm probably just having a bad day.

Well this me summing up what T in the park is like for the uninitiated, 3 drunken guys on a ghost train trying not to spill their tennents. Enjoy.

You Americans it's time you updated your Scottish stereotypes and Irn Bru is here to help you. Also there is some naked pensioner ass in the vid.









I don't know about you lot but I loved and I mean loved G1 Jockey for the wii. It had this insane amount of depth to it but at the same time you were bouncing up and down spanking yourself whilst shouting come on golden shower, or whatever you named your horse.

The game was sheer madness and I loved it. I knew I would definitely be getting the next instalment but I wasn't sure how they could top their previous attempt, that is until I heard the were using the balance board. Eurogamer got the story and I can't wait for September now

Random news story of the day for me was seeing David and Richard Darling, the founders of codemasters in the queens birthday list getting CBEs. BBC link

Now personally i would of told the queen to fuck off but I suppose it's still nice for the Darling brothers to finally get some recognition. Well Dizzy was awesome.

Woo party tonight but wait I feel something is missing


A few hours later



A much better Now i'm ready to play some singstar and drink some Zubrowka.

Reason #48 why I ain't getting rock band:

It doesn't have Chesney Hawks.









So today I get an email telling me Tesco are launching "a brand-new digital site" so far so meh but wait they say there will also be "Great games that are free to play".

http://www.tescodigital.com/Store/Default.aspx

So yeah it is just a bunch of mostly shoddy flash games but the fact is Tesco is the UKs most recognised brand, their influence is massive and they are coming out and saying that hey these game thingys ain't so bad.

So this is more evidence, if any more was actually needed, that almost everyone plays games now. Yes casual games but oooh it's a slippery slope from Eastenders Ghost of Walford.
Oh and they have chuckie egg, damn that game is awesome.
