12 games you've never played… what's nice is I have played most of them :-)
Some call them cult classics - we say it like it is: you missed these games, and you shouldn't have.

Something Terrible, by Dean Trippe.
Heavy stuff, but Art can address horrific themes like child abuse.

Just had the strangest dream I was reading from a book I'd written, entitled "Five go down in Suspicious Circumstances". It seemed very real at the time. Here's the snippet I remembered on waking:

"Oh grow some, Anne!" said George.

Years after the surgery, Ern, as "he" would later be known, looked back on that day as a defining moment. The beginning of "his" journey into transgenderism, and the realisation that "Anne" was just the social construct of a woman's heart trapped in a man's mind in a woman's body.

Children, point to here on the chart where you think Anne would need keyhole surgery…
… Yes, that's right.


Shame I can't remember more. Something about Dick being lashed with a ginger beer bottle…?

So the bloated management get fat payouts, but future redundancies will revert to minimum level :-(

One thing I've learned from reviewing/grading papers recently: the bad is objective, the good is subjective #edchat

Anyone else think the generic FB placeholder avatar looks like two gorillas trying to out-quiff each other?

Story
Introduction
Story Teller, Writer and Broadcaster, Lecturer and all round Pedagogist, interested in Games, Plagiarism, Social Effects of Technology, oh and Plagiarism. Dr. Mike "DoctorMike" Reddy has studied and worked at several universities, including Durham, Leeds and Manchester, and is now Programme Leader for Games and Future Technology at the University of Wales, Newport. He claims to be “an awful academic, far more interested in the playing and the doing of life than the writing and reviewing” and perhaps for that reason has been instrumental in raising debate over 21st century pedagogy and teaching practices in the UK, reprioritizing learning and reminding us that education is something you do for/with students, not at them. He is currently stupidly busy working on the World's first Foundation Degree for getting Artists to program, while running the EU funded caldys2 project aimed at creating computer games to aid children with dyslexia learn English as a second language, with 10 EU partners. Lots of travel, lots of work, no time...
