Xbox 720 Specs Killed My Father (And Kidnapped My Interest)

The next generation is so close we can taste it! It tastes like a pavement, whatever you do, don’t try to taste it.

Stumbling into the EGX show hall I was greeted by Pocket Sized Hands’ Honeypot Espionage, a VIVE VR game that almost had me smashing up their monitors.

The Next Xbox Won’t be Always-Online But it Might Eat Your Children

Yet another splurge from the rumour mill surfaces, this time discounting the idea that the Next Xbox will be always online only. Well duh. Says Rob, managing to make eight characters last a good page. Get inside and have yourself a right old shufty why not.

Guesty’s getting his scribble on, whilst Rob spiels ardently about his love for E3’s stupid jokes inside! Find out what we think old Jack Tretton SHOULD have done. Though it’s basically what he actually did. He just did so with corporate professionalism. TO THE BAR!

The Video Game Awards 2011

Respawn in…5 at the VGAs! And by ‘at the’ we mean, ‘make Rob stay up till 3am streaming it over the interwebs!’ And I’m even aware that makes no sense whatsoever. EXCELLENT HEY!

NOW PLAYING | Rocket League

Rob’s been playing Rocket League, in some sort of desperate attempt to get away from The Witcher for 40 seconds. Can he possibly enjoy a FOOTBALL CAR game?

VIDEO | Nether Let’s Play

VIDEO | Nether Let’s Play

Would you believe it? Nether! This week’s Let’s Play sees Rob trying and failing to get used to the pace of a survival game, as he trudges from corner to corner boisterously fog-horning about not knowing what’s going on and where is he and what time is it. Dive in and watch it then!

NOW PLAYING | Oquonie

I’ve been playing Oquonie, among other things, and its unique, abstract world is something to get lost in. That’s both your character, and your sense of things that aren’t written by David Firth.

Respawn at Insomnia54

Perfect Sunday evening reading by anybody’s standards. So long as those anybodies don’t have standards of course.

Minecraft: Yes, Us Too.


We thought it was high time SOMEONE said SOMETHING about this game. And then several weeks after we thought that, we bought it. Here then, is not a Minecraft REVIEW. Because it’s still in beta. But a handful of interesting indicators as to why Rob has lost his mind down a mine somewhere, and why we think a square-headed cow is probably responsible. READ ON AND SUCH!

Six Reasons Why The Playstation 4 Will Be My Best Friend

It’s BEEN ANNOUNCED. Yes it was the other week, but we needed a moment to get Rob down off the ceiling before he reverted to be his normal, detestable, blibbering self. We hate Rob. If you hate Rob too, why not read his latest illegible spieling about the PLAYSTATION 4. He’s listed six reasons why he won’t want to talk to you when Sony finally crack this freshly revealed slice of tomorrow out! Well? Go on then.

GDC: A Nice Time of Year

It’s THE WEEK IN GAMES. Well sort of. Here’s this week’s inane rambling about how GDC and Valve made Rob feel ALL EXCITED for games again. Just like when he was a small child, locked in a basement, excited at the prospect of sunlight. Or something.
