After watching the video I felt compelled to practice what was preached during the presentation by posting this positive comment about it. As a writer myself I too get wound up about the tiny fraction of negative comments I receive yet rarely acknowledge the positive feedback I get on my work. When I do I actually check myself by muttering 'don't get cocky' and move on. It's a blight on any creator's character that we strive to entertain and enthral others with our works, yet at the same time become demoralised by negative comments that are thrown our way. Keep up the great work Patrick and Zoe, you're an inspiration to us all.

Liking all three games this week. Heavy Bullets is the one I'm most drawn to though.

The more I see and read about this game, the more enraged I become. An overreaction? Perhaps, but the very name of it comes across as an insult. It's a generic 3rd person shooter set in the near future with 'xeno-technology'. Really? REALLY? Is this what video games have become? Turgid rehashes of games that appeal to males aged 18-34 who also like Call of Duty? Yes I know I don't have to buy it and I certainly won't be. But the fact that millions of $ were spent creating this bland by the numbers drivel makes me a very frustrated fan of video games. The medium does not need this kind of stuff and it needs to go away, permanently.

A great show that was blighted with some ignorance spouted about the European video game scene in the 1980's. I'm not sure what Jeff's mental block is with Europe, but it seems to be really strong as he keeps on getting things wrong. He does have an encyclopedic like mind when it comes to video games, but that doesn't stop him from messing up.

The thing he messed up on was the story of Rare. They started out making games for the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad, MSX and BBC computers and were known as 'Ultimate Play the Game'. Just as a piece of evidence, they looked like the image to the left. They then went on to make games for the NES, the first of which was RC Pro Am in 1988.

Kind of sad to see Jeff not join Will to Fight, the very clan I'm in! Ah well, the invite is always there Jeff!

Denis Dyack's brain is too big for his head. Seriously I saw some leaking from his left ear in that vid!
