Satisfy your inner id

Feel like playing a shed load of id games? Steam are offering a number of different packs, including the id Super Pack for a cool $69.99. Granted you may not actually want to play Doom when you have Doom II etc, but who's complaining? Other student-friendly bundles include:

There's nothing quite like bitching about stuff. Especially if you've a reason, or if you have a nice artistic style (or the skill to plagiarise another one). WhistleBlowerZero, a former employee of the gaming rip-off that is GameStop, has put up a number of videos on YouTube detailing life in the trenches, and highlighting some of GameStop's more dubious practices. Which coincidently happens to be most of them. Personally I don't like GameStop because they're technically stealing money out of my pocket, but if you can put up with his inability to enunciate, the videos do seem to highlight mankinds inept intelligence when it comes to basic math.

I have a lawyer around here somewhere...

One of the trailer video's that I saw today was for Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, a title coming for PSN. The trailer looks quite fun, but I can't help drawing certain similarities to an old project of mine, especially when you watch the movies. Swap the balls for cars, update the graphics, add some particles - bam, a nice shiny PSN game. Now, I understand the pressures of modern day gaming, and it's flattering to be used as the inspiration (dare I say possibly the source engine - mine was, if anything, scalable) for such a title. I'll have to keep an eye on it to see that they do the IP justice...
