Lawrence Arms at O₂ Academy Liverpool was stupendous. Pic of me with Brendan & Neil. Chris was well friendly, too. Likewise, Bangers and Sam Russo were ace and wonderful. All musicians were accommodating to my ramblings as a punk music fan. A stellar evening.

Ganondorf is my favourite playable character after completing all 18 scenarios of Legend Mode in Hyrule Warriors. I beat the game on its day of release (Fri.19th Sept.2014), and I hope other gamers enjoy running amok as Link's hackin'-and-slashin' nemesis.

I beat inFAMOUS: Second Son tonight, two weeks after its Fri. 21st Mar launch. It reminded me of Spider-Man 2 game, on GCN and PS2 (2004). I enjoyed the spectacle of bounding across skyscraper rooftops most of all.

The Last of Us has been stunning so far, I've reached Cabin Resort, so I'm close to the end. Survival feels tense. Its world is starkly bleak and harrowing, yet it has a tender side, with environments that are strikingly atmospheric.

I completed BioShock Infinite yesterday, I played entire game using PS Move to accurately target Handyman's heart. I partially worked out a twist in the conclusion, but the ending was still stunning, with enough mind-boggling threads to successfully surprise even the most inquisitive player.
