Small Radios Big Televisions Looks Pretty Bizarre

The trailer for Small Radios Big Televisions [official site] uses a voice filter that reminds me slightly of the Max Headroom hack that happened during a broadcast of Doctor Who. It also kind of annoys me that there’s no comma between “radios” and “big” in the title, but that’s another story. In any case, I think this might be a game for me. The wait won’t be long, as it’s now received a release date of November 8th. Read the rest of this entry »

What Are We All Playing This Weekend

I see Team RPS have been sending me e-mails ‘detailing their weekend gaming plans’. Nice try, jerks. You won’t get me that easily. I know that spookings are lurking around every corner this time of year, in every reflection, behind every door, in every e-mail, and I’m not going to fall for it. No, I refuse to open these. Instead, I shall tell you how I imagine they would respond if I were to ask them what they were playing this weekend. You can tell me what you’re playing too but of course I won’t read it. I know your tricks.
