Glitchspace: Hands-On

Posted by on Sep 9, 2014

Glitchspace excites me mentally. I love the idea of programming but didn’t really have the capacity to learn it or use it meaningfully. Glitchspace uses semi-simple...

Unhealthy amount of FIFA to be played for charity

Oct 29, 2014

A chap by the name of Chris Cook is planning to play FIFA 15 non-stop for at least 48 hours and six minutes. Not because this will get his name into the Guinness Book of World Records (although it will). Not because he wants to find more than four matches online where his opponent plays as somebody other than Barcelona, AC Milan, or Paris St Germain (he’d...

New Warframe update brings space combat, magical hat

New Warframe update brings space combat, magical hat

Driveclub looks set to go down in the record books. Not in terms of sales (though it doesn’t seem to have done badly), and not in terms of critical acclaim (professional reception seems to average out at ‘lukewarm’).

Seriously, there are jiggle physics in...
