is it ok if i (try to) write an article on a system used in video games which can be applied to real life ?
(it will be short and only conceptual, but quite interesting for video games developpers imo)

i guess that the category would be :

Or anything you think will be great for the magazine. It doesn't have to be a topic from above

I was going to try to do something based on my experiences with Blitz as suggested by Mr Strange .... from Zvirus to Polymaniacs and maybe a little about the Syntaxbomb comps.  I suspect it'll bore the pants off of most but I'll try to keep it short and sweet  ;D

I doubt that Stevie, your work speaks for itself.  Be nice to hear your thought processes behind the magic though.

I would love to read some "behind the scenes" stories of your games. And of course from other people here too. The more the better!

Of course you won't bore the pants off us :o - We're all coding geeks and freaks here so make it as long and in-depth as you fancy :D

Lol, its times like this you wonder where time goes! :D

I'm halfway through a arcade piece, you know, the good old days when you went to Blackpool and all that, I was off yesterday so thought champion, I'll get a bit done, but me mams oven broke so I was running about sorting that... It wouldnt of been too bad, but, she was adamant she wanted one yesterday and wanted to go and look, but like any modern day white goods shopping, half the places like currys and that didnt have what she wanted in stock and the majority is order only, finally got her one though, so had to trail all the way to bloody Middlesbrough to pick it up! :/ You have all these big shops, with shite loads of goods displayed, and they have none in... It's no wonder the high street is on its knees... Whats the bloody point in going if you cannot get what you want there and then, you may as well just order from your armchair!

Anyway, it wasnt such a bad afternoon, while she was looking, who'ing an harring on... I accidentally bought an Oculus Quest, lol, pure accidental mind :P Though, only had a quick go this morning, seems canny, if that Oculus Link thing is any good that'll be great as I'll get my Rift games on there, and I do fancy a bit of Lone Echo at the minute! :D

I digress (As always), hope I can plough on with a bit today! :)

I thought the idea was to have the theme of your contribution a secret...I was going to do the same about holidays at Butlins back in the day.  The general buzz of the arcade machines there, the sounds, the atmosphere and general excitement of seeing the latest machines that year.  Plus some of the closer to home arcades; even now hearing the sound of a dying Pacman brings back so many memories - such a distinctive sound!  No point in repeating a similar page or 2 though.

Mine is a secret :P

Sure there is :) your memories are yours alone along with your experiences. I and I'm sure others would love to read about your personal take on the good old days of the buzz arcades gave. Me, Isle of Wight, Sandown pier, Kung-fu master and Star Wars :P

Go for it ;D
Until the next time...

Erm, looks like my "gobshite" mode kicked in inadvertently there! :D

Still, it doesnt matter, it's sorta like going to get a new shirt in Next for a party, it's a knocky bet someone will have done the same and you get there and someone goes "nice shirt", and they are wearing the same one, difference here is we'll have different fond memories when wearing the same shirt, which will show! ;)
