I am a cybernetically enhanced human being. I have a SID chip for a heart and two tape decks for eyes. And a zip stick in my pants. Aside from my modifications, I can feel and love just as you unmodifieds can. Basically I'm the same as you, except I am completely invincible and I shoot laser beams. It's pretty cool.

My favourite games include:

Bruce Lee, Nexus, Cliffhanger, Law of the West, IK+, the Great Escape, Samurai Warrior - The Battles of Usagi Yojimbo, Syndicate Wars, and Ico.

Oil Imperium

"Hi there Jim. Slight snag with the Oil Imperium cover. Do ya think people are gonna
realise that we've included a poster? I know that we've put "Poster Included !" in that red
band bottom right, and I think that's a step in the right direction, but dya think we need
something...more...I dunno, something that really says - hey guys! We've included a

Hello and welcome to a new series entitled


This week we will be spending some sexytime with sexyTim in Braid: Tim's Adventures in

Oh for anyone who's interested my record is available now. It's a concept album based on Rocky IV and probably the best thing ever made. You can check that shizzle out on my myspace.


Here are the 12 most bad ass C64 covers ever, as voted for by a panel of me me me.

12. Danger Freak

Never, ever, EVER mess with a badly drawn kite flying giant with a shark cock.

11. 1994 - Ten Years After

I predict that by the year 1994 t-shirts and hair will be illegal and we will be ruled by a cyber falcon who records our thoughts with tape recorders up to five or six hundred times bigger and more powerful than the ones we have today.

10. Skateboard Joust

I have a backwards cap, sunglasses and ripped jeans. I also ride an enormous yellow skateboard with DEATH written on it. Beat me up.

9. Road Raider

Mad Max with George Michael as Max? Uwe Boll take note.

8. IK+

Wow, so Steven Seagal is in this game?

" It's a funny story actually. We lied. Sorry about that."

7. Majik

Wait, so is Donald Sutherland actually in this game then?

"This one was a total accident!! Who am I kidding. We lied about that one too! Ha ha."

6. Wall$treet


5. Jumpman

Behold, the jumping white man. Take that, Wesley Snipes!

4. Logo

Hey...this one is actually pretty cool.

3. Oxxonian

Pyramids? Check. Cadillac? Check. Shit imitation droids? Double Check.

2. The Sydney Affair

A game about a sniper so highly trained he can kill you from INSIDE HIS OWN GUN.

1. Hysteria

Every single night, just before I fall sleep, I utter a silent prayer to the Lord above that when I awake I will find myself within the magical world depicted on this cover. Someday he will grant me my wish. And when he does...lock up your centaurs. Shit is gonna get ugly.

Cool video(with shite sound) of Peter Molyneux fom the 2005 GDC.

Not sure if Narbacular Drop had been released at this point but it's interesting to note the similarities between Valve's Portal and this demo...and also to see how far Molyneux's priorities have shifted since then...from dicking with the players perception of reality to trying to engage the player on some emotional level. I for one am glad - Oi Pete, you can keep yer oranges, I wanna play with my dog.
