IronWire: The Cable That Will Probably Live Longer Than You

IronWire: The Cable That Will Probably Live Longer Than You

Cables are always breaking on me. Whether it’s the iPhone charger, the laptop charger, guitar leads or headphone cords, I can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to cables. I had a rabbit that was hugely fond of chewing through anything long, rubbery and inanimate, and more than a few inherently convenient cables fell victim to his oversized teeth. He’s long dead now (from natural causes I might stress, not because he chewed…

Fight The Hordes With 4Force Online

Fight The Hordes With 4Force Online

MMORPGs are bug business these days. In case anyone is out of the loop, MMORPG stands for massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and for better or worse, it’s becoming the new standard for multiplayer gaming. Sadly, the days when a group of friends would circle the couch and play winner-stays-on Mario Kart are receding into distant memory (though that’ll always be my preferred method of playing with mates). MMORPGs started on the PC with the…

Number Chef: A Tasty Old School Puzzler

Number Chef: A Tasty Old School Puzzler

Cooking goes well with a lot of things. It can go well with a burgeoning relationship, for instance. It can also work effectively with the radio, when it’s on in the background. Similarly, maths can also go well with a lot of things. Protractors, rulers, textboooks, etc. The list is comprehensive. However, I’ve never thought of combining the two, as they seem at cross-purposes. But taking a closer look reveals that they aren’t all that…

Or at least, that’s what one would think. However,…

It has a population of just under 24 million, which is a big big market to play with. Even if they call slot machines ‘pokies’ (they really do; online pokies australia is also a big money spinner for them) and drink tiny bottles of beer,…

Aquapolis: That’s Greek For Water City And It’s Pretty Damn Apt

Aquapolis: That’s Greek For Water City And It’s Pretty Damn Apt

My first introduction to the city building/farming genre, which at that point couldn’t even be called a genre, was the enchanting ‘Harvest Moon’ title for N64. I’d spend hours building up my farm, tending to the animals and growing crops. Life was peaceful on my farm. Perhaps a little too peaceful. And therein lies the problem with the farming genre. Nothing much happens. Sure, if you like to take it easy and use the games…
