Come Back To The Future Now (And For Free)

Lord Jimothy! Johncharlesfrederickathon! Kierovington IV! Quintin! It is I, Alexander Granville Cuthbert Meershire, Earl of Rotheringhampton-under-Thames. Quickly, come hither to me. Something most odd has occured. Some manner of iron box, mounted somehow upon four wheels and adorned with walls of glass, has arrived outside the stables. It is a fearsome thing, bellowing smoke and malodour. As I approach, its side lifted upwards, like the…

Opinion: Is Fighting Being Dumbed Down?

I got into a fight last night. Alas, not the hand-to-hand combat kind, though that was my intention. Smear some young Turk's blood across my knuckles, drink his fear like some ethereal digestif, all that.

Russian Novel “Unfinished”

Boo! Boo! And thrice-boo! Why must we gentlemen be fobbed off with literature that emerges from the land of the Tsar in a state that can only be described as unfinished? Clearly, this is a problem here at the heart of Her Majesty's empire too - no, Mr Dickens. It's not episodic! you've just not finished writing the bally thing yet! - but it's all…

Opinion: Ladies Of Leisure

Recent reports have shown that an ever increasing number of young ladies are partaking in the activity of gameing. We took it upon ourselves to investigate this unlikely phenomenon. Pray, imagine the scenario. Whilst walking down the street you see a young child gaily rolling a hoop, tapping away with his stick, and merrily laughing. But what is this?

What One Thinks: The Mansion Of Happiness

It's been a slow week for video games (almost as slow as last week, in fact), so I've taken it upon myself to review the Parker Brothers' new entertainment, The Mansion of Happiness: An Instructive Moral and Entertaining Amusement. Designed by a clergyman's daughter, Miss. Anne Abbott, this game seeks to amuse and teach Puritan virtues at once! Yes, Puritan. Marvellous...

Is It Too Soon For Mary Celeste Horror Game?

Twas only December last that the Mary Celeste was discovered, bereft of passengers or crew. But already we are hearing word of a playground game becoming popular on this theme, spreading betwixt the school yards. The game, a variant on hide and seek, involves one person trying to identify the location of his missing friends, but never being able to find them. However, some are…
