A well needed update

First of all i apologies for the severe lack of information in the last couple of months. This is for a variety reasons, first of all I've had a high university work load which has been taking up a lot of my time. Secondly it's those barren summer months where very few games get released and due to this there has been a lack of content to review. Finally an exciting update, episode 1 of the Game Invaders TV show has been created, this was a university project done with a massive £0 budget and an absolutely fantastic team.  It was specified that this show had to be filmed live, this meant no post production and it had to be shot in one take, so please excuse any hiccups that you might occur or any awkward presenting by myself. So if you wish to watch the final product, here is the you tube link.

With that we go from the past and look onto the future. Expect my next article in September where i will be discussing the highs and lows from London's Eurogamer Expo, this will be my second year attending but first year i will be covering the event..  Reviews most likely won't commence until around October where there will be plenty of titles to choose from. However they will probably still be following the once a month review structure as i will be entering my final year of University. Which brings me onto my final piece of exciting news, I have been green lighted to create my own game "Hyperion" as my final year project, this does mean i will be creating it entirely by myself including but not limited to; designing, 3D model and texture creation, animation, coding and possibly web design. As you can probably tell this is going to be a massive project that will take up a huge portion of my time, so if you don't hear from me from time to time please don't get annoyed, i'm just hard at work (surprisingly). However I will be giving you frequent updates on how the game is coming along and even hopefully have a playable demo for you all this time next year.

But that's all for now, i'll see you in autumn for Eurogamer Expo.
