24 Hour Gaming Marathon

FA10upjVSo this bank holiday weekend Rooney and myself are doing a 24 hour gaming marathon on XBox One to raise money for Meningitis Now which is an incredible charity. Rooney will be doing his 24 hours on Friday through to Saturday and I’ll be doing mine on Sunday through to Monday.

At present the timetable is:

Rooney – 12pm on Friday 25th March (finishing 12pm Saturday 26th). Playing Elder Scrolls Online, Halo 5, SW: Battlefront.

Hibiscus – 9am Sunday 27th March (finishing 9am Monday 28th). Playing Witcher 3, SW: Battlefront, Elder Scrolls Online.

Please check out the link for more information and also feel free to donate and/or share the link. We will be sharing updates on Facebook and Twitter and will do a post on here after on how it went and so on. Any money raised will make a huge difference.

My Thoughts on #GamerGate

I’ve been thinking about writing down some thoughts on this rather inflammatory subject for a while, but steered clear of it because of the almost inevitable flak it draws to those that write about it, and because I thought it would fade away after a couple of weeks. Well, it hasn’t, and I’ve been reminded that some of the things done in the name of this “movement” are inexcusable, and those responsible need to be called out for their behaviour – by as many people as possible.

Depending on how this post is received, I may remove it – I’m not here to start a war with either side, so let’s try and keep this civil shall we?

Thoughts on PUG in MMO’s

Long time no post! I’ve been lost in the wilderness outside of the Cantina for a while now, caught up in the winds of work and fatherhood, but something has drawn me back, something has prompted me to sit still long enough to write some words here. And that something is Destiny.

Don’t worry, this won’t be another addition to the Internet’s slew of reviews, praises, or criticisms of the game – I’m saving that for another post – this is just some observations on the raids/strikes, and their counterparts in other MMO’s.

Halo 4, Spartan Ops: It’s awesome, but I have an issue….

I love Spartan Ops, but I have a major issue with the recent ending of season 1. I’ve kept the first part of this post clear of spoilers, but the second half reveals massive details of the ending, so don’t read the latter part if you don’t want it ruined! You have been warned…

WoW:TM is a Thing again.

Today several sites are reporting that the much-delayed, (sort of) long-awaited World of Warcraft film has a new director and a 2015 release date. It may be news to some of you that it had an old director, but it did. And it pains me to say that the previously attached director was Sam Raimi. It pains me because he was responsible for one of my favourite films ever – Ghostbusters! But alas, Mr Raimi pulled out of WoW:TM (World of Warcraft: The Movie) to concentrate on his Oz film. His loss, though, right?
