Keihatsu Radio = Chiptunes ftw

The world should join in, it's that goooooooooood. I lurve me some chiptunes and listen to this station every Sunday whilst doing household things. Ain't found any other station that caters to my breakbeat/dnb/dirtybeats taste with a mass...


Technological musings of an over-worked salesman

Sup Dtoiders, Chaaaaaaaaanges.... It's been a while, I know! At least 6 months since I last did a clog (yes not this trendy new cblog name). I've been working away at a very large, very well known UK IT retailer advising people on produ...


Xbox 360 Arcade Box

Was there ever any doubt? Good deal I say, good deal. 1x Component Cable, Memory & White stuff. Pacman and Uno too! [http://www.arstechnica.com via http://www.xboxscene.com]


Am I going mental or are Valve ripping people off?

Okay so when HL2:Episode Two and Portal were announced, I was under the impression that Portal would come bundled with Episode Two. CVG: " Portal ships with Half-Life 2: Episode Two at the end of the year. " Only - when I visit Steam I am...


I can has internets? YAY!

Hello fellow Cloggers! It's a crying shame, almost two weeks without teh net at my new place! Then again, at least there's no bug infestation here and we have running hot water, a vast improvement. It felt as though I had lost an appendage...


I made a banner + random thoughts...

Yay for Amiga crashes and paint! By the way, who the fuck does Robert Summa think he is? Diss the Dtoiders and then come try to hug us all with blog posts? I don't think so. Anyone who's ranting at Summa deserves a gold star at the moment...


David Houghton is a legend

I. Yes me. I, just spoke with the following man courtesy of our favourite Houghton-San; Only a quick crazy phone call but still, my mind is blown. I just wish I had been able to go to London for the Pure Pwnage premiere this weekend. In...


Congrats Kid, You Got Aids!

So my brother just linked me to this and I'm still wiping the tears of laughter from my face. I can only imagine the kid looked like this; And I quote; "<Anonymous> Now, Iím sure many of you have encountered little shits in superm...


Megaman 2 Video Rant by David Houghton

Okay so it's almost 3am and David has consumed quite a lot of wine. We decided to have a go at Satan's Quest aka Megaman 2. Here are some results... Apologies for the epic fail on sound quality, camera phones ain't up to scratch yet.


E-Sports World Cup Coverage

Well, it seems as if no-one has even noticed this is happening on here. I'm told one of the Dtoid army is on his way for the weekend, but alas, there is no news as of yet. Until that time, the BBC can inform you all. I do feel that Jim or ...


Rumour; Sony re-re-releases the PSTwo

It's interesting when things like this happen. Sony, it seems, still deem it viable to be spending on R&D, trying to reduce the size and possibly power consumption of it's greatest console to date, the PSTwo. Whilst this could be a reason f...


UK Repair Company refuses to repair 'RedRing' 360's

Things must be awful if companies are refusing to repair the consoles now. I'd feel much more comfortable buying a modded 360 which gave me temperature info and had extra heatsinks installed and all of it's soldering checked. ""We're not...


FF Contest: Cloud's Life after 7.

Just so you all know, I've never written or read a final fantasy fanfic. My original plan was for this to be a lot funnier but I got lost somewhere along the way in my love for the characters in the game. Anyway, enjoy and wish me luck! ...


Half Man, Half Machine

For those who are unawares, Goldie Lookin' Chain are a welsh rap sensation. One of their songs is all about being a robot and sticking your cock into an electrical socket to recharge. Whilst the video is the edited version, it's the only ...


Brothers in Arms: War Stories (DS) Clogging Review

So I'm sitting down for a nice little WW2 flashback. I'm a huge fan of the FPS genre, when it involves a keyboard and a mouse and Metroid on DS definitely does float my boat (as did the Duke3D Homebrew!) but when it comes to WW2, I've nev...


May be old but I just found it... LEMMINGS FOR DS!!!

Unfortunately, for those hiding under a rock, Lemmings is not very likely to see an official release on the DS. What a shame, despite the games age it is still as playable as any other classic game of it's era. Never mind though, Mr Dict...


A lovely gaming birthday!

What a loving gaming birthday I'm having so far. My brother has treated me to a few Steam games, one of the HL2 packs with ep1 included. Fragging at 1am with a spliff and Jack Daniels is just bliss. I've played HL2 a million times before, b...


Transformers Autobots (DS) Clogger Review

I typed most of this as I played it. So the loading screens are on, hi hasbro and activision, dreamworks, paramount, viacom, vicarious visions and now... THE TITLE SCREEN! Transformaaars, robots in diss-guise. The first thing that hits...

A little help for all you budding game journalists

GameStyleGuide has provided the introduction to their latest book for free online. If any of you bloggers are serious about trying to write about the gaming industry, this is a must read. Granted I don't often like people telling me ho...


Megaman - The original "Hero"

After a crazy night of MegaMan2 through my shady emulation techniques, I came to the following conclusion; Megaman was the original Peter Petrelli. This then made me wonder if TV writers/producers are actually taking the time to see wha...


Guitar Hero 3 Lookin Proper Razzle Dazzle!

Check out these two videos Okay so the guy playing isn't uber pro or anything but the graphics and the sheer amount of sweat dripping from the lead guitarist's shiny HD body is fantastic! Definitely the best use of Cell I've seen so far......

360 is coming soon for HD gaming. I give in, honestly. Wii is okay, feels too gimmicky too often. PS3 = lol - nuff said. Best "next gen" console is DS and the PC ain't a console but it's one helluva gaming machine, for me at least.

Hit me up on Steam; Tempus_84 for a game of HL2 DM!
