Morning Glory Issue 002

Monday, July 2nd, 2007 by craig

After the BBFC declared that Manhunt 2 would never be released in its current state, or indeed without “significant changes”, Rockstar have decided to go back to the drawing board with Manhunt. Or is that the kitchen chopping board?

In an unprecedented move, Rockstar have today announced that …

Morning Glory Issue 001

Saturday, June 30th, 2007 by craig

In this first ever issue of Morning Glory, we see the typical setting of two gamers talking. One day we might see three gamers talking, or even four. This morning only required two though, so only two there are. Bring forth gamers one and two.

It’s the typical setting of a conversation. There are two people. …

UK Says HELL No to Manhunt 2

Friday, June 22nd, 2007 by craig

Just as we start to think that everything has settled down in England with all that rubbish about games causing deaths (even though we all know that it’s over-sized hot dogs that kill the majority of the human population), ELSPA decide it’s time to find a new scandal …

Houston — Wii have a success story

Friday, December 29th, 2006 by craig

“The Wii is just a gimmick, it’ll never work.”

“Everybody will have forgot about it in two months time.”

Those two statements have been on the tip of my tongue for a long time now, and I’ve been spouting them to anyone who would listen for even longer. In retrospect I probably sounded like a crazed ex-Nintendo …

The Wii-Hunt Is Over

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006 by craig

I’ve just spent since the UK launch (8th Dec) searching for a Wii. I’ve traipsed all the websites, and clenched my fists at the mocking “out of stock” signs. I even let it drop when I walked into another game shop yesterday to find out that yes, they do have stock, but no, they aren’t …

Review – Gears Of War

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006 by craig

With a game that has so much hype grabbing onto to its heels and biting violently, it’s difficult to even know where to begin with such a review. I feel I should be writing an equally monumental review to represent the game: a 3,000 page mini encyclopaedia describing every minute detail that would no doubt …

Next Generation?

Monday, November 27th, 2006 by craig

I was reading a piece of literature about the Wii the other day. You know, the usual suspect: the glossy ten page magazine saying that the product will revolutionise whatever market it is coming to. Surprisingly, it was an interesting little mag, but it was two words that caught my eye. “New Generation.”? These two …

Where has the hype gone?

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006 by craig

Here in England, we always get things late. Sometimes very late, but that’s usually just Sony (I still stand by my claim that the PS3 won’t be out here until November). Something that England and the rest of Europe usually have, though, is an abundance of hype, hype, and more hype. Strangely enough, we all …

Sony Ram More Hard Phallic Instruments Up Britain

Thursday, November 9th, 2006 by craig

It really is never ending is it? First we get told that we wont receive the PS3 until March, which I accurately predicted about a year ago (shame I didn’t put a bet on it), and now Head Honcho Harrison is refusing to tell us that we’ll be getting it for March. Which I also …

Gears Of War In Bilingual Shocker, And I Think I’m Developing Mental Problems

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006 by craig

According to some random guy hidden in the very deep dark depths of the Internet (don’t go there without rubberised protection and lots of sharp objects), Gears of War is apparently region free. His post isn’t all that informative in explaining his method of finding out, so like a good videogaming fan …
