For science, you monster
Kotaku has a video up from Portal 2 that shows off a new character, Wheatley. It is essential viewing! It’s extremely pleasing to see that the writing looks as strong and darkly chuckle-worthy as ever. I’m not so convinced about the voice acting (though the British accent was a pleasant surprise) and apparently it’s only a placeholder track. Dear Valve, ask Simon Pegg to do...
Aviary is dead useful
It’s an online version of photoshop. It’s not got all the stuff I assume professionals and lolcat editors need but it’s a decent substitute. Sign in with gmail/facebook/whatever and you too are ready to start editing sub-GCSE level art. I done this colouring in earlier: Snazzy. [Aviary]
I hate iTunes. I hate it. God I hate it. I HATE IT. It’s like wrestling a...– Charlie Brooker again. iTunes is half the reason I won’t get an ipod. [http://twitter.com/charltonbrooker/status/16790776952]
Tame Impala are still great

thatgamecompany have a new game
It’s called Journey. Jenova Chen described it as ‘awe towards the unknown’ and said the feeling they were going for was that of astronauts’ spirital awakenings when they see Earth from a great distance. From most people I’d write this off as just a designer spewing balls in an interview but I have played Flower (his previous game) and it’s very different,...

I’m a bulletproof tiger man!
Good Great news! The second series of Eastbound and Down is back in a few months! Lots of exclamation marks!!
Nintendo continue to wage war on my bank account
After Microsoft’s impressive showing (well, at least the Minority Report style interfaces) at E3 yesterday, Nintendo managed to totally blow them (away) today. Along with a new Donkey Kong Country, a new Zelda, new Kirby, a Goldeneye game and Metroid, they launched the 3DS. Congratulations Nintendo, you just secured a few hundred more of my future pounds.

Michael and Gob have an advertising company
Okay, another post via (nicked from) Videogum, but it’s too good not to share. Justin Bateman and Will Arnett are now making moolah by selling out and making shorts full of product placement. Anything that keeps them in front of a camera is fine by me! [via videogum]

This series is going swimmingly (ba dum crash) so far! Good job adult swim.
Radiohead are Ico fans
Not just Ico fans either, Jonny Greenwood posted a list of their favourite games on Dead Air Space that included both Half Life games, Braid and Goldeneye. It makes them seem more like real folk (nerds) knowing that they enjoy the same stuff that we (I) do. [from Dead Air Space, via Kotaku]
Fucking Booming School
I never went to booming school so I can’t tell you whether this method is right or not but it made me laugh, as much as you can laugh at such a tragic mess of a situation. The original piece by a guy called Fishgrease (obviously the Kenny Powers of the booming world) is worth reading, particular if you work at BP and are doing booming work. Judging by the photos further down, BP...
