It's at times like immediately after watching a load of North Korean propaganda that I am reminded of how Capitalism really works and in the same blink of an eye I often find my self thinking about Star Trek, specifically the ethics of the Federation in contrast with say, the Ferengi Rules Of Acquisition: 1. Once you have their money, you ...Do you want to know more?
These made me laugh (darkly, I'll admit) far too much not to share. Here is a list of HEROES killed by their own inventions - I'll let you decide if quotation marks should be used in any part of that last sentence. The "That is never going to work" award goes to... Ismail ibn Hammad al-Jawhari (died ca. 1003–1010), a Muslim Kazakh Tu...Do you want to know more?
Once again keeping with the Cyberpunk stylings of the last few days Wayward discovered a fantastic Blade Runner skin pack for Minecraft so I duly applied it to the game and logged onto Bog Of The Mill - this is the rather cyberpunk-tastic result: I shall put my mind to making something suitably Blade Runner as soon as I have a few hou...Do you want to know more?
So my long standing friend and fellow Trek fanboy Reynolds sent me these questions in my email, and being a sport I'll answer them here - from my phone from memory with no using wiki to look up facts (for added challenge)... So here we have it; 10 questions (no one needed answering) about Star Trek.. 1. Why is Dax such a slut? Both an ...Do you want to know more?
So continuing my recent trip into cyberpunk nostalgia this morning I have been watching Cyber City OEDO 808. I remember this show from a brief run it did on Channel 4 in what was probably 1994 (I can't precisely remember, I do remember being disappointed there were only three episodes). Now I am not a huge fan of Manga as a rule, beyond ...Do you want to know more?
So I was trying to motivate myself to go and exercise and managed to motivate myself to post this blog about motivational stuff. I’ll take it as a win for now (under advisement).

I don’t do game reviews but I do occasionally drop blogs to tell people how much I enjoyed a game, and people I did totally enjoy Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Now I know it’s not a hugely popular thing to say but I enjoyed Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe and this feels like a -wait for it- superior successor. It’s well rounded, easy to get to grips with and highly entertaining even in the single player campaign mode. I accept I am probably the only person who buys these games for single player…
My only negative would be that it took only about 5 hours to complete – could it have lasted longer? Maybe an hour I suppose (before I got bored – low attention span is basically my signature move…), but the important thing is I liked how it played out. Highly recommend for any DC fans, or fans of Netherrealm.
Oh also, in reference to the “Press button, wait, wait, make tea, wait wait, execute move problem” that people have mentioned to me in respect to Mortal Kombat Vs. DC… that’s not here. Some of these characters are hella fast.
So. Yeah. Enjoy.
