Some macro-esque photos taken in the back garden with my 70-210mm lens. For an experiment, with a lens not designed for the purpose, they're okay...

Like side scrolling shooters, but wish they were a bit more... tactical?
Mighty Tactical Shooter is a shootem up with turn-based mechanics and just launched on Kickstarter this afternoon.
There's even a free demo so you can try before donating!

This is glorious, if you appreciate stats.

There's a lovely study somewhere that shows that people who grew up with Vinyl prefer the sound of Vinyl over MP3, and people who grew up with MP3 prefer the sound of MP3 (in blind tests). Turns out it's just you prefer the sampling errors you are used to.

Making history, the first ever wholly Scottish Men's derby bout featured Glasgow's Mean City Roller Derby taking on Falkirk/Stirling Bairn City Rollers' Skelpies. Here's some photos from after the bout.

So the traditional Steam Winter sale has started... and there seems to be some pointless 'Snow Globe' metagame which is disappointingly in-game item fixated.

So, ignoring that: currently discounted stuff worths damn: Monaco, The Stanley Parable both on daily deals, tons of Indie stuff on sale for the duration...

Oddest sale item so far: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, only days after going on preorder, reduced by 33%. Of course, preorder, and rumours suggest a poor port, so I'm no suggesting everyone should buy it...
