Bully game receives critisism 27 October, 2006

Rockstar’s latest game, originally entitled “Bully” has received vast amount of criticism. So much so that it has been renamed to “Canis Canem Edit” meaning “Dog Eat Dog.” The name, although miss-leading, does not accurately depict what happens in the game, and this has proved how Adults are quick to point the finger at games and their effects on teenagers.

We’re Rainyuki Recommended! 26 October, 2006

I recently signed-up to Bloggerhub.com (now on the Blogroll) in a bid to boost the traffic of the blog. Rainyuki was offering to review peoples blogs, so I decided to show him mine. Here’s what he had to say:

“Substance is good. It is easy to read, with a casual tone.
May I suggest a better contrast between the background and entries? This is as the background seems a little bright. It could be adjusted by placing a background with a slightly darker tone.
Number of entries on a page is pretty alright, not cramped but just nice.
Images are just sufficient for each entry.

Reading substance: 9 / 10
Layout: 7 / 10
Images: 8 / 10
X-factor: 8 / 10
Variety: 8 / 10
Language: Simple and Casual.
Profanity: None to mild.
Audience factor: Teenagers to the adults

Overall rating: Recommended. You are good at what you are doing, keep it up. Apart from a few minor problems, lets say… you passed with flying colours.

Thank you for your submission.”

Needless-to-say i’m thrilled with this great review, and i’m proud to be Rainyuki Recommended! I’ve also added Rainyuki’s blog to the Blogroll.

Well, no, it doesn’t. But DS Community will soon be no more as it fuses with all the latest Wii-related news to bring you a brand new website!

Tim Morgan, creator of DS Community, assures us that this will not be the end of DSC and all it’s great features. The site will just recieve a new name, new look, and will be injected with…*ehem* Wii. Popular features of DSC will still remain, including the Friend Code Exchange, News, Downloads, and the ever growing Forum.

There are also a few new features expected for the new site, including a Video Library. This will probably include things like Game Trailers, and the Video Podcast of ConnecTouch ’07.

The Site is due to launch in about a week. – Stay Tuned!

Connection Lost Updates 23 October, 2006

I know I havn’t been posting as much as I should lately, but that doesn’t mean i’m not devoted to this blog! I am, I just have a really abverse way of showing it. But due to some bits of work at school, my re-discovering of OGame, some issues with some people, and general lazyness – the blog has received somewhat of a negection-spell over the past few weeks. I know those are really crap excuses, but news has been running a little thin lately, and I don’t just want to post just for the sake of posting.

But you are to expect a few things in the coming weeks. Firstly, i’m going to start reviewing games. I’ve reviewed a few before, but i’m going to go through my 12 games with a fine-tooth comb and give you an insight into what they are really like to play.

I’m also thinking of getting back into comic-making.  I dabbled in web-comics a about half a year ago, and i’m happy to say I very well may be re-kindling the flame, so to speak. But in terms of what to expect from the comic – I can’t give you much. I maybe re-think the whole idea. I may re-think the style of my drawing. Hell, I don’t even know how i’m going to make it yet. Adobe Illustrator? Draw-it-in-real-ife-and-then-scan-it-and-then-resize-it-and-then-colour-it? Or even…*gasp* MS Paint?!

I maybe even get back into game making. Some of my friends and myself started making a game, and with two of the 4 gone, me and one of my friends may get back into it. Who knows.
There are also a few more things in the pipeline, but since most of them probably won’t make it, i’ll just keep them under-wraps for now.

Connectouch ’07 Update #2 9 October, 2006

I’ve gotten in touch with Tim Morgan, and it is confirmed that the doors WILL be open from Friday 6pm for people to arrive. You will be able to arrive until about midday Saturday.

I said before that under 15s where not allowed to go to the event. In a more recent topic, Tim has said that under 15s may come accompanied by an over 18-year-old, and exception might be made for those who want to come alone but you will need written permission from a parent or guardian. If you want to go with the latter, I suggest you contact Tim via PM on the forums: http://www.dscommunity.co.uk, and maybe give him a phone number along with your letter. I also suggest that if you are not known on DS Community, when you contact Tim you should do so in a mature and coheirent manner. He is almost certainly not going to let a 13-year-old saying “Yo LeT mE cUm 2 Da EvEnt!1!!” run around on their own. Just a word of friendly advice ;D

If I get anymore updates – i’ll let you guys know!

God, i’m so pissed off… 2 October, 2006

Well, here’s the thing: My History Teacher sucks. I’ll start from the beginning.

I am currently working at level G in History. For those who are not familiar with the British grading system – G is the second worst grade. It’s bad, I know, but the woman can’t teach. She goes through the topics pretty touch and go, and she expects us to know. She also expectsd us to do things without instruction, even though she has created this iron grip on everything we do in class. She really does have double-standards.

Also, in this country, we are given a ‘Target Minimum Grade’. This sucker is what the teacher in question expects you to get. Let’s take a look at mine. Remember I’m working at a G? I was even when she set the T.M.G, so what is my T.M.G? A – naturally.

So when it came to one of our regular tests, last week, I thought I did pretty well – much better than my other tests. And I had. We got our results today and I got a D. Now, considering what I had got before, this is definatly a step in the right direction. But she had decided that if you didn’t get one grade below your T.M.G or above – you would have tore-do the test. So i’m stuck in a Detention next Monday to re-dothe swine.

Let me ask – where the fuck did she get a T.M.G of A from?! I’m a bright kid, and i’m in top set for Science, Maths, and am doing well in Art, Photography, Media, and IT. And it just so happens that the subject from which i’m getting the worst grade in my life from, is being taught by her? Bah.

Firstly, it’ll be running from Saturday the 24th of March 2007, to Sunday the 25th. Now, i’m not sure if this still means people can arrive from 6pm Friday, but i’m sure it does. I’ll be sure to contact Tim Morgan to clarify this.

The event is being held in Whitchurch in Hampshire. There are buses running through Whitchurch every 30 minutes from Basingstoke, Winchester, and Andover.There arealso train serives running through London and Exeter every hour.

Also, this event is not just for DS Community members. It is for almost everyone who wished to attend.  No under 15s are allowed into the event.

The event has an 8MB connection for thse who wish to bring along their laptop or DS. This is a free service.
