I was watching Mrs. Skuds playing one of those Facebook games the other day. It may be called ‘Tribez’. It looked like a generic Swords & Sorcery meets Sim City sort of game. It made me think that the way technology is going we can’t be too far away from being able to play Sim […]

Another book I recently finished is For The Win by Cory Doctorow.Â Â At nearly 500 pages it is a substantial read, but I got through it really quickly, which is usually a sign that I am enjoying it.Â Given my circumstances it is hardly surprising that I enjoyed a story of oppressed workers organising themselves […]

I have been trying to sort out space issues on somebody’s laptop this week.Â They didn’t have enough room to install World of Warcraft and all its various add-ons.

I am currently just a little obsessed with Akinator. I know how it is done and all that, but I’m still amazed how it still managed to get people like Harriet Harman, Carlos Santana, Daara O’Briain, Trevor Brooking, Geddy Lee, Tom Baker, Alan Sugar, Richard Dawkins, Jimmy Saville, even Andrew Collins in twenty questions. Caught […]

Over at Wongablog, Andrew has been trying to get to grips with the Rock Band game, with mixed results.Â He may find it encouraging to see what happened when Rush tried the game and failed on their own song… You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

This game must be old news, but I only stumbled across it this evening.Â Great fun, but quite difficult, and nearly as good as the knife-throwing game.Â Basically, you have to control ‘Dangerous Dave’ Cameron on his bike.

The local branch of Game had a couple of CDs of old Sierra games in their sale. One had 5 Leisure Suit Larry games and the other had 6 Space Quest games on it, and they all work on XP. I couldn’t resist them, and have spent the last few days playing games that I […]

I do like the idea of this: hot on the heels of having a museum of computing at Bletchley Park comes the idea of a museum for computer games. It might sound like a trivial thing to devote a museum to, but if we can have whole rooms dedicated to silver thimbles in the V&A […]
