Grand Theft Video

The second video for grand theft auto IV is out and its ok.

The visuals remind me alot about the Driver series of games but better. Im looking foward for the games release the video thought really doesnt show much and in my opinion is short.

The best parts of the video are when the background changes to the music as the Russian character walks towards the camera and the car being shot. Check it out

Have Your Own Election

Today as I’m sure  everyone is aware Tony Blair leaves number 10 to a Mr Gorden Brown One games company is taking a novel approach to this news.

This is the email i received.

Positech Games is a UK company, and here in the UK today our Prime Minister (Tony Blair) is stepping down. Because we feel that this should be cause for a general election, and there isn’t going to be one, we are marking this situation by offering our political strategy game ‘Democracy’ at a 50% discount today. Hopefully, this will remind people how a real Democracy should work 😀

There are details of our political strategy game here:

If you buy the game today, and only today, it’s 50% off 😀

Thanks for supporting indie games,

Cliff

Who ever thought of this is a genius.

Ps3 Price cut?

Well it could be on the cards according to an article on Gamespot

Frankly its about time.

Its not that i think the ps3 is overpriced its simply is just not possible for me and many others to afford one at the current price and I’m someone that really wants one.  I’m sure you are aware sony already is making a loss on each unit sold just like Microsoft with there xbox 360 but surly even this being the case it would benefit them in the long run if  they took more of the pain by cutting the price.

The only way for both Sony and Microsoft to claw the money back and make a profit is for them to make it on the games and other pieces of hardware that they sell. This means that the more consoles that are out there in people homes the more games and hardware they will sell and thus money make.

While  many people who want a ps3 simply cant afford it sony are making no money from them. Cutting the price buy even £50 could make a big difference to the amount of consoles they sell.

I hope that they do see sense and cut the price by a sensible amount until they do I will save my money.

Interveiw

Tomorrow I have an job interview. I have to say that next to exams and working in a call centre interviews are one of the things I hate.

In real life I am a pretty shy person and having to do an interview is a nightmare im not really sure what’s worse the wait or the actual Interview.

Interviews I realise are important for the employer to gauge how someone is but some of the techniques I find amusing granted not at the actual time of the interview but afterwards when its all over and done with some of the question are strange to say the least and in the state i get into even the simplest of questions befuddle me.

Anyway interviews I hate and tomorrow I have one wish me luck.

I really will need it.

UPDATE:

It went ok hopefully I will get a phone call in the week to arrange an trial run. I spent 3 hours at the place thougth not that fun.

Challenge Anneka

Challenge Anneka returned to our TV screens tonight for a new series. I remember the original with fond memories and nothing has changed it is still as good as ever and I’m looking forward to more. Anneka rice and her sound man Dave are back 11 or so years since the last show and it really doesn’t show they still have the same energy they had then.

It amazes me what can be done when people really put the mind to it. If only more of this could happen if people with relatively little power can do these sorts of amazing things why can government’s?

Tonight’s challenge was to record an 12 track music album and perform a concert to raise money for Children’s hospices all of which do a brilliant job providing care to very very ill children and there families. What’s more all are charities which rely on  fund raising to keep going. The hospice featured in it self needs £3’000’000 a year to survive. They had to do all this in 5 days.
