If you received an annoying “can’t find it” page in place of citizen game lately, that would be due to the folks at my hosting company using their servers for football practise. Or something. (It’s happened before.)
I’m actively looking for a new host, preferably in Canada, preferably Wordpress-happy so that I can upgrade the thing [...]

GTA IV Patch Is Up For PS3

v1.01. It’s a tiny download. The game will prompt you when you launch it.
I’m glad they rolled this out so fast, some of my close friends have been bitten by the freezing bug associated with PSN. Guys who really like GTA IV. I felt their pain.


Criterion Devs Caught Taking Trucker Pills

That’s the only thing I can think of that explains the insane pace of Burnout Paradise updates planned this year. The full details are on the Criterion blog.
They’re not kidding when they call it “a year of Paradise”. I posted earlier on the first update, the not-yet-released Bogart patch, set to squish some [...]


MGO Initial Beta Test Results

… or so I hear.
I’m sure our man in the field will have more to say.
UPDATE - yep, Konami’s servers are now smoking craters and I’m sure there are a few sysadmins in EVASION mode, trying to keep their jobs. Sweet Zombie Jesus, what a mess:
Hi all! As many of you already know, the Metal [...]

Xbox LIVE’s Mea Culpa Game: Undertow

I’m Not Dead

… but rumours of my database’s demise are not greatly exaggerated…
…think I got it figured out now. Expect normal transmission schedule to resume this aft.
Also, if anyone knows of a way to somehow decapitate a lookup table header, bronze it, and nail it to my wall, I’d love to hear it. Thanks!
