Prototype Judas has appeared on my desk [Cubeecraft]

This is my first attempt at Binding of Isaac cubees with a prototype Judas. Going to make some alterations because I think I've tried to be too clever and strayed from the template a little too far.

Cubeecraft is awsome

So I stumbled upon this art form today and instantly printed out some characters and got busy. More to come, and I am planning on doing the rest of the Isaac characters =]

Chiptunes Collection

Stumbled on this collection of great music on Bandcamp today. There's some tracks in there that aren't quite to my taste, but there's some good ones in there worth spending the time listening to.

Ken Block is back doing what he does best in Gymkhana 5

Having been a little more than let down with Gymkhana 4 last year I wasn;t really hyped about this one, but man was I wrong not to be anything but!

Tony Hawk HD is nearly here =]

Following on from the promises of a new Worms game coming, another nostalgia-fest is on it's way in the next few weeks.

Unreal Engine 4 showing promise

Looks like next-gen is on it's way.

The Worms Revolution Dev Diary Part 1 - 4

The original Worms is one of the first games I have memories of playing, and it looks like the new worms game is gonna be pretty cool! Adding some new features, this could be a return to the good old days. =]

Could the tech in Portal become real?

As much as we all want to have a Portal gun, it looks like we won't be getting them any time soon.

Blog update

Ok, so I'm going to start making use of this old thing again. I started up my portfolio site (mrey.co.uk) and was going to post cool stuff based around games development on there, but I've come to the realisation that it's gonna be much easier to just dump it here, and it's also gonna make it possible to post some personal stuff as well as the game dev stuff I was collecting on my portfolio =]

So, starting with something cool that I watched today (not while I was suppose to be working of course!)

MAN (of MAN vs GAME) talks to Edmund McMillen, and Danny Baranowsky

Man talks to creators of The Binding of Isaac to celebrate his two years of casting. Some really funny stories, and always great to hear from a legend such as Edmund about his views on game development and the industry in general.

Binding Of Isaac complete (the first time)

Just had a really lucky run through with Cain.
  • Upgraded Level 4 Meat Boy
  • Shears Space Bar item (with a battery)
  • Technology tears upgrade
  • Several Damage upgrades
  • Several HP upgrades
  • Treasure Map and Compass (bought in the Shop after getting a dollar)
  • ... and a 1UP (which I didn't get to use)

Ok, so maybe I was a little over powered, but 100 attempts in and finally got to the end of Womb II.
