Dead Island gameplay



Dead Island gameplay....looks pretty sweet...to me its like farcry meets res evil.





Painting in a trendy hipster club/bar...Bit of a nightmare due to it being painted on wood...having to paint over canvas's and having to stand on a table...hard to get a nice flow going while not being able to walk around.


took 2 days to paint...would say we spent about 7 hours doing this....A wall this size that we can just walk up to and paint would take us about an hour to paint...but this one was just a ball ache.


Finished wall...Halo2 (done by Perv) Orco and Noh by myself.

Carboot Sale Rage







Ok for those not in the UK a carboot..imagine a field...with a load of cars lined up..Wall paper paste tables covered in junk that you want to sell.

 Right..onto the rant.

I collect retro consoles/games etc..And carboot sales are sometimes a great place to find cheap stuff.
But im missing a couple of consoles. And I don't really want to pay eBay prices.

The Wife and I decide to make a day of it and go to one that’s a little bit off our radar, but hey if you don’t go then you could be missing a right treat haha.

Not really going all that well..But then I spy games...Alot of games..ps1, GameCube....maybe he has..w00p megadrive games...I pick up tony hawks 1 for the ps1 and find a 3 games on 1 cart for megadrive. We get to talking about stuff and he’s asking me what im looking for.

Me: Oh I still need a Dreamcast
Him: I have one of them, how much are you looking to pay for it?
Me: Carboot prices really.
Him: Well how about £5...I will bring it next week.
Me: Deal...yeah bring it next week

The following week is a wash out..Pissing it down. We drive out just in case but yeah the place is a ghost town.

My wife goes the following week...And he’s forgot it...but he has a megadrive as well that he’s willing to sell for cheap..He says he will bring them the following Sunday.

Sunday comes and we get up early...I just have a feeling that this is going to be a waste of time...And yup it was. He tells me that he’s really sorry but he sold them last week...Yeah the day that my wife came to buy them but you had forgot them...But somehow you managed to sell something that you didn't have with you.
I just had no comeback...All I could think of was to just stand there and call him a dick.

24 hours later and im still confused as to why a grown adult would lie for just no reason at all.
I can understand when kid lie...The may lie to show off..e.g. say they have a game at home that they don't really have...But an adult? I mean its his job to sell shit...and I want to buy his shit....I just don't get it.

He gave his life to save us all


I grew up watching this guy..I dont care how fake it is or whatever..Its entertainment :)

Was always more of a Jake the snake fan myself. I can remember wondering how anyone could get up after one of his DDT's....You watch it now and a DDT is nothing. It would have to be a DDT of the ropes with some kind of 360 in for good measure.

So anyone want to bet when the Hulksters time is up?

Meeting his hero


My son got to meet his hero the other week. He loves sonic. Infact he's like a wiki of sonic. For some reason he just knows everything about him. Then again maybe hes making some of it up haha.
I know the costume is a little crappy, but damn he loved it.

It seems there might be an issue of overheating when playing the sony ps3 version and possibly xbox 360 version.

New Xbox 360 update incompatible with some models, MS offering replacements

Microsoft has confirmed that some Xbox 360 consoles weren't happy with a recent firmware update upcoming, mandatory firmware update. The console manufacturer will replace consoles that have become unable to read retail game discs with a new Xbox 360 S with 250 GB hard drive.

"Following a recent update to our system software, we have become aware of an issue that is preventing a very small number of Xbox 360 owners from playing retail game discs," a Microsoft statement reads. "This issue manifests itself a as a unique 'disc unreadable' or 'disc unsupported' error on the screen and is unrelated to our recent public beta (alteration from original Eurogamer statement). We are also able to detect this issue over Xbox Live and are proactively reaching out to customers that may be impacted to replace their console."


 Havnt tried the update myself yet..But a new console would come in handy :)
Myself and Perv (although i think this was a a point when he got bored writing Perv and started writing Had or Had2)

Rumour: Nintendo Project Cafe Demonstration Leaked?


Hmmm looks pretty fake to me.
Looks more like a room in a uni rather than something nintendo would set up.
The pad also looks like we are going back to the gamecube.

New Dead Island Teaser: Tragedy Hits Paradise

Deep Silver has released a new teaser trailer show-casing some in-game footage. An extended version of this teaser is promised to be shown off at next month E3 expo.

Piracy V's Purchase








I have only just jumped on the homebrew bandwagon. Using a usb loader. I’m starting to find that I don’t appreciate the game as much if its a pirate. I seem to play a game to death if I go out and pay £30 - £40 for it.
But if it comes to me for free I tend to just start it and then turn the game off when im bored. Is this just me?
