UK anti-porn filters are cocking up League of Legends

The "for the children" UK internet restriction filters are going full bore this month. You remembered to opt out, right? If you didn't, not only are you going to be prevented from seeing my erotic Sonic fanfiction (which is u...

Blockbuster closing all its UK stores by December 16

Last month we learned aged rental giant Blockbuster would draw its last breath on US soil by January 2014, when all 300 remaining locations would be shut down. Blockbuster UK is beating us to the punch, it seems. The 91 remai...

Watch Charlie Brooker talk Jon Snow through games

Yesterday I posted on why you should all watch Charlie Brooker's How Videogames Changed the World. Realizing that it might be hard to watch if you're outside the UK, it's worth sharing this clip from Channel 4 News, where Br...

The PlayStation 4 outsold the Wii U in 48 hours in the UK

Och Aye The Noo it's Gaming's Greatest Scots
by Alasdair Duncan

If you didn't know, November 30 is St. Andrew's Day in Scotland. He's the patron saint of this fair land (along with Russia and Greece apparently) so with some semblance of national pride, I decided to look throughout the annals of videogaming history to see if there were any standout figures. Sadly, Jamie "Challenge Scot" McGinn didn't make the cut due to me being unable to accept that anything good has ever come from East Kilbride apart from The Jesus And Mary Chain

Whilst there weren't exactly a lot of characters to choose from, I did come up with an interesting list. I decided to forgo the most well known characters from licensed games, meaning there's no Shrek, Fat Bastard (thanks again Mike Myers), Groundskeeper Willie or Scotty from Star Trek. So with that, down your whiskey [Joked to myself I'd change all the Scottish spellings and then he goes and spells 'whisky' like a Yank! - Ed.] and let's get into the list.
