An interview with NICK POPE!

 

 The Uninvited – 1997. Today I have a treat for you. Last week we looked at The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (An amazing game.), and during my research I discovered that a friend of mine was involved on the project. Nick Pope, one the world’s foremost UFOLOGISTS (UFO expert) and Conspiracy Theorists (No, he’s not a loon! He’s one of the few who looks for truth, NOT sensational stories.)  Nick worked for the British Ministry of Defence (MOD)  from 1985 to 2006. Over the past three-decades he has written several books – the titles of which are seen on this page – and worked on various TV shows, films and other media. Essentially he’s a “REAL-LIFE”, Fox Mulder… Wonder if he […]

Misfit Munchies.

 

 Well today I decided to try something different. Today, we do our first sit down interview. Now I know that there are a number of games companies, comic-shops, and toy merchants available – but I’ve decided to go one better. TODAY WE LOOK AT CAKE!  And where better to start and discuss cakes then with a new and upcoming dessert shop? And not just ANY dessert shop, but one run by geeks. A GEEK CAKE PRODUCTION FACILITY! And I, your peaceful sugar-high overlord, was lucky enough to be at the lunch party for such an establishment. MISFIT MUNCHIES For the benefit of my readers, I’ve skipped the gay banter and blue waffles (They had soap in them), and have skipped […]

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

 

 THE- It has been almost two decades since the X-Com series began. Last year – after almost a 11 years of waiting – we finally received XCom: Enemy Unknown. This year, on this very day – 20th of August – or this Friday 23rd (On my birthday. Send me lots of gifts.) – we receive The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. -BUREAU:- The game, set in the United States during 1962, tells the story of Special Agent William Carter, who is working for the US “Bureau of Strategic Emergency Command.” The bureau is tasked with investigating and stopping any extraterrestrial incursions on American soil. Unlike previous titles, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, will have more of an X-Files (TV SHOW) feel, than a […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 16

 

 “Compassion: that’s the one things no machine ever had. Maybe it’s the one thing that keeps men ahead of them.” – Doctor McCoy.  Damn it, Javerage! I’m a writer, not a Smash Brothers junkie! I have lots to do. Like, like,… exactly. Right, let’s get on with Star Trek Monday. “I’ve found that evil usually triumphs…unless good is very, very careful.” – Doctor McCoy. Now as you can imagine there a number of Doctor McCoy memes; and most of them revolve around his ebullient personality. This meme, commonly referred to as “Damn it Jim, or I’m a Doctor” is probably one of the most recognizable of ALL Star Trek memes. Any fan of the original series would probably be able […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 15

 

  “It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.” – Spock.  Welcome to the NEW 925 site. It’s cleaner, smoother, more stylish, more classy, more sexually arousing. Yes, we still have articles! Yes, we still have pictures! Yes, we still have unstable writers! Yes, WE STILL HAVE STAR TREK!  And how better to start off our new 925 Star Trek Meme Mondays without a look at all memes Spock.  “Without followers, evil cannot spread.” – Spock. Now Spock memes are amongst the most varied of all memes on the internet. Hell, Spock has done it all: racing, walking, spinning, spooning, pruning and feeding bottle. So for this article – instead of compiling a […]

NEW DOCTOR!

 

   “The universe is big. It’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.” — The Doctor, Season 5, Episode 12. As the more informed amongst you will have probably noticed, Matt Smith is retiring from his role as Doctor Who. Now although this in its own is not a revelation; the person replacing him is. That’s correct – three people who do not yet know – the name of the “new” Doctor has been revealed. “The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil […]

Black Mesa: CLASSIC REVIEW

 

 “They’re waiting for you, Gordon. In the test chamber.” – A scientist.  Well, that was an interesting play through. At the most, I was expecting updated graphics. Followed by the never ending flow of familiar twists and turns. With familiar faces, weapons and enemies, all returning in updated glory. And a few rehashed memories, thrown in just for luck. Thus nothing overly new. HOWEVER! I soon found myself getting lost down new corridors. Where once only bland walls stood; NEW laboratories had been added. Inside them, NEW people (male and female) work, argue and chat. Lights flash, and NEW music plays. Re-imagined people and monsters stalk the corridors. And the action is more intense than ever. Around you, familiar sights […]

AMERICAN REVOLUTION!

 

 “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” – Benjamin Franklin. HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY, Americans. Hope you’re all getting plastered out of your minds. For those of you who are not drunk and want to play some – non-Imperialistic – games; this article is for you! Now, American Revolution games are few and far between, and a little thin on the ground. (No we are not going anywhere near Assassins Creed.) Instead we are going – in the theme of the week – to join the front lines of mass infantry combat, and look at an Empire: Total War mod that pits the Rebels against their Noble masters.  “I have not yet begun to fight.” […]

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR: DAY 3

 

 “The power of noble deeds is to be preserved and passed on to the future.” – Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. Good morning, and welcome to this – the third and final day of Battle of Gettysburg. Over the past two days, the casualties have been mounting, with close to 30,000 men knocked out so far. Over the past 48 hours this battle has seen it all: bravery, betrayal, cunning, skill, brotherhood, friendship, fear, panic, awe, and Chamberlain’s 20th Maine bayonet charging the Greybacks off the Little Round Top. Now over the past 2 days we have looked at films, games, and comics relating to the Civil War. Today we try something a little different. Today we look at an amazing historical […]
