Subject: The Hub Is Not A Trash Can

Dear All NEST staff

This is a polite reminder to all NEST staff that, despite appearances, the yawning abyss in the Hub is not actually bottomless. I shouldn't have to remind you that key security and safety equipment is down there as well as the emergency evacuation exit. Janitorial staff have found countless cigarette butts, disposable coffee cups and other general detritus down there. Please use the trash cans provided in shared work areas.

Subject: Nap Room Changes

Dear All NEST staff

Due to a string of complaints about inappropriate behaviour the nap room will be single sex use only as of next week. You can find the nap room rota on the shared drive. There is a spare bed in the security office should you wish to nap when it isn't your sex's 'turn'. This is also a good time to remind staff that the nap room pods are single occupancy online.

Libris geekus: Ready Player One

Image
Earlier today I picked up a copy of Ready Player One. A little bit less earlier today I put it down. Finished. It's a really great book. Okay, so the set-up is a little flawed to engineer characters fourty years in the future with the geek sensibilities of a 2011 late-twenties-early thirties geek but it's forgivable. This book gives hope to geeks everywhere who may take solace in a scenario (albeit fictional) that actually makes use of all that knowledge of books, films and games that we have to save the world.

Resident Evil Revival Selection HD Remastered Version

"Resident Evil Revival Selection HD Remastered Version"
Yep that is the name of it! It is going to be released on 360 and PS3. It contains Resident evil 4 (and the parting ways Ada side missions) and Resident Evil Code Veronica!

Well Isn't that nice? I have played Resi4 on Gamecube, Wii, PS2, PC, and now I can play it on my 360! AND on top of that get some classic "Code: Veronica" on the go!

In saying that though... I kinna which we would get RE1/RE2/RE3 resurrected...

Might happen!

Realtime worlds: I told you so.

Since 66% of this blog is situated in Scotland, and I am actually in the games Industry, I suppose we are expected to comment on this one. For those of you who don't know, APB flopped, and as such RTW went into administration. Now, did anyone NOT see this one coming? I certainly saw this... not as a pessimistic prediction, more a painfully apparent inevitability. I have seen many people come and go from this company, each time I would pose the question, "why, realtime worlds?". Just to be met with an almost blind ignorance that this company could 'do no wrong', when specifically they were working on a supposed WoW-killer MMO. An ambitious task, anyone would agree. And the premise of this WoW-killer? Cops and Robbers. Realtime worlds I roll my eyes at thee. Though I do have to tip my hat to them, during the time (years) leading up to the launch they did manage to create some hype about a 'GTA-like MMO' (lies), and at one point made micro-transactions sound…

To those of use we lost 12 years ago to this day during that “incident” in that “mansion” just outside Raccoon city.
To the brave souls of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha and Bravo teams we lost; May we never forget you!
