Life is Not a Side-Quest

The other day I wrote about the mind-blowing ramifications of No Man’s Sky – and somebody pointed out that the idea of life being a simulation isn’t a new one. In fact, modern-day Tony Stark Elon Musk has said similar things; and some credit it with why he has been able to achieve such amazing things. Now, […]

Chuck Tingle’s Weird-Ass Books Are Becoming a Video Game!

It’s weird when two figures from opposing sides of your world collide in the most unexpected way. As a best-selling self-published author, I have nothing but admiration for Chuck Tingle, the mysterious man behind the Hugo Award Winning Space Raptor Butt Invasion and Pounded In The Butt By My Own Butt. His ridiculous but topical erotic shorts […]

The Philosophical Questions Posed by No Man’s Sky

Although a lot of early players were disappointed in Hello Game’s No Man’s Sky, it’s still a stunning feat of creativity. Using procedural generation, co-founder Sean Murray and his team have created a virtual universe of 18 quintillion potential planets; literally an entire reality squeezed onto 6GB of disc space. And that poses some interesting […]

Is No Man’s Sky a Fraud?

$59 is a fair chunk of change. It’s at least ten pints of beer down at my local watering hole, and fortunately that’s what I spent my money on, instead of No Man’s Sky from Hello Games. I’d been planning to buy the game though. I was super excited about the thought of exploring an […]

Back at the convention center at 8am. It’s make it or break it time. All of our stock is waiting for us at the booth.  We load it all in, barely making it fit. Our back room is packed. After that, time to finish setting up the cases. Being optimistic and having an early start […]

British MMA champ Michael Page used KO. It was super effective. Everybody’s addicted to Pokémon Go, it seems – even hardcore MMA fighters. In fact, the most bizarre collision of worlds occurred in London last week, when the Bellator circuit of Mixed Martial Arts fighting (like, the poor cousin of UFC) held it’s first event […]

Pokémon Go is the hero society didn’t know it needed…

Pokémon Go is the best thing to happen to America in years. Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about the 2006 movie-turned-precognitive-documentary Idiocracy, in which Mike Judge’s answer to Barack Obama, President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, addresses the nation by admitting: “Shit’s bad right now.”     And Camacho is right. Shit is […]

Hold the phone! Minecraft goes VR!

I just mortgaged a kidney to afford a VR-ready Alienware desktop – but even that’s not ‘VR-ready’ at the moment, because getting your hands on a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset is harder than getting a decent movie out of Adam Sandler. But VR fans needn’t worry – there’s a stop-gap. The folks at […]

Are Oculus Trying to Skew the VR Market?

Are Oculus trying to bribe their way into market dominance? I’m married to the most amazing woman in the world – not least of which because she said yesterday: “You’ve been a good boy. Maybe you should buy yourself that Alienware computer you’ve been lusting after.” She might come to regret that decision – because […]
