Resident Evil 7’s free story DLC delayed

The free Resident Evil 7 [official site] story DLC ‘Not A Hero’ is delayed, Capcom have announced. The end of RE7 teased that Not A Hero would arrive in spring 2017, but now it won’t. Capcom say it wasn’t shaping up as good as the rest of the (great) game but they want it to be, so they’ll work on it a while longer. No firm word yet on when it will arrive. For the benefit of folks who’ve not yet played RE7, I’ll not say much about Not A Hero before the cut. Speaking of… Read the rest of this entry »

Call of Duty: WW2 is real, obvs

Cor blimey, love a duck, and stone the crows: Activision have announced that the next Call of Duty game will be Call of Duty: WWII [official site]. Their official announcement says about as much as the leak which gave this away four weeks ago. Another supposed leak has sprung with unconfirmed babbling about unsurprising things like D-Day and a co-op mode. But what’s most important is that ↑ teaser artwork up there.

The Foxer

Warm-Up Foxer (Where am I?)

I’m in the northern hemisphere. I’m standing next to a skatepark. The hilltops to the west and north-west are dominated by water tanks. Many of the springs in this vicinity issue hot water. The river just in front of me is over 3000km in length. I’m 150km from an international border and 30km from a spaceship hangar. The local mountain has two names, one equine, one reptilian. The pond to my right is named after a TV/radio host. Read the rest of this entry »

On one occasion I was saved by a sunset. I was a superb slow bowler. I had a cunicular chronicler. I lived nextdoor to the Royal Academy. Read the rest of this entry »

What are we all playing this weekend?

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Ohhh! I got you! It isn’t! Wakka wakka. Timeless pranks. Endless japery. Infinite banter. You turn and see banter coil behind you as if trapped in a hall of mirrors. You turn back and there it is again, banter stretching endlessly into the distance, reaching to a blank point you’ll never reach but never escape from.

What are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on. Read the rest of this entry »

The Foxer

Warm-Up Foxer (What am I?)

I was born in France but spent much of my childhood in Italy. I’ve a connection with Honda and Rolls-Royce. I survived WW2 by hiding under a bed. I’m as heavy/light as a Grease Gun. My likeness has appeared on many different objects including stamps, posters, tickets, trays and handkerchiefs. SE19 occupies a special place in my heart. My current whereabouts is unknown.

The Foxer

Warm-Up Foxer (What am I?)

I’m a game, a weapon, and a place. I’m a mother and a mass murderer. I’ve won an Academy Award. I’m roughly the same height as the tallest structure in the world. I may have influenced one of the world’s most famous paintings. I’m impossible to anagram. I made headlines in the year one of Prague’s most famous sons was born. Read the rest of this entry »
