It’s a pretty pricey book, but well worth it as far as im concerned. It covers all the scenes; and it is the original never seen before artwork from the first 3 films of the saga:

Facehugger

So I’ve had a cough for a really long time; and my pulmonologist finally let me go for a CT scan of my chest. Parts of the scan look like there is an alien facehugger inside me!

In reality, only an alien chestburster would be able to live within you. I’m not complaining though; being part alien would be cool; if it upgraded my abilities:

If you had to have any type of alien encounter (really think deeply about this), would you be afraid; and would you hope for them to enhance you in some way? What would you like them to do to you?

I’d definitely be scared! Unless the encounter was with E.T, then it’s chilled. I’d hope for them to be able to answer all my questions; and give a full and accurate timeline of the history of Earth/ the Universe; and i wouldn’t say no to superpowers either.

Pokemon Legends

I just signed up for Pokemon Legends; an online MMO RPG where you can battle, catch and train over 500 Pokemon! You can choose a starter Pokemon from any of the regions under the water/fire/grass type as per normal. Obviously i went for the fire:

My Starter Pokemon - Charmander

My Starter Pokemon – Charmander

I ended up battling and catching 3 Pokemon so far, (Sentret, Caterpie and Starly). Not the greatest line-up for success, but its a start. I have also run out of Poke-balls and im not sure where i can acquire more of them?? I do have money (3010 Pokemon currency) which i intend on spending on new attacks for Charmander:

New ‘n Tasty!

Has anyone bought the revamped Oddworld: New ‘n Tasty since it was released last year? It’s only $20.00 on Steam; and well worth it!

Wanted: New 'n Tasty

Wanted: New ‘n Tasty

A lot has changed graphically. The 3D crispness of New ‘n Tasty gives this classic 90’s game a greater bout of timelessness. This is a screen grab of me playing the old version/Oddysee:

Old Version

Not as sharp as the revamp obviously. The spirit birds used for mind control are also more detailed:

In the old version; when Abe saved employees, the bird portal would just be two incandescent dots connected with a line. Now the birds transcend into making a proper portal with a 3D gateway:

How Old Do I Look?

Microsoft has a programme that is eager to tell you how old you look; as well as what gender you are:

How Old Do I Look?

How Old Do I Look?

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few developers put this solution together in just one day… Although it isn’t perfect; they are still working on it. In every picture my gender was identified correctly. My age was never correctly identified. Here are a few of my results from the test:

With my cap on i achieved the youngest age (yet these are very recent photos):

Me as a 27 year old

With my cap off i’m really old (even though this photo was taken about 2 years ago):

Me as a 31 year old

With my hair up and glasses on i am between the above two cases in age (this photo was also taken about 2 years ago):

How old am i actually? I’m 23 years old; and most people actually consider me to be a teenager when they guess my age. Thanks guys!
