Pokémon ‘NO’ – launch issues and first impressions of Pokémon GO!

How do you mess up the launch of Pokémon? All people want to do is pick it up and play. Which is exactly how Niantic and Nintendo screwed this up.

Zuki Magic Life Counter launched on Google Play!

Hey everyone! I’d like to announce the successful publishing of my first (of hopefully many) apps to go onto the Google Play store. Just a simple one to get started, it’s a little Magic the Gathering (and similar) life counter app, that is a bit different to the others in that it is designed to be clear, simple and readable for both players.

It’s very simple, tap the top of one life total to increase it, tap the bottom to decrease it! There’s a reset button, and a small help button. There’s more features to be added as time goes on, but as the first app I’ve actually gone through the Google publishing process with, I wanted to get things moving!

You can see all my apps at this link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Zuki
As you can see, there is a free, ad-supported version, and a 69p version that has no advertising. Either way, I appreciate your support 🙂 so please, download and use the app, and give me whatever feedback / ideas for new versions you want!

– Matt “gyaku_zuki” Leebody

Antichamber – You are not here

Not since Portal have I had this much fun playing a puzzle game. And there is a distinct feel of Portal going on here, with the clean whites, the clever puzzles, a strange gun, and the outlandish physics.

Translink NI – How not to do trains, or customer service

Cue Translink, with their mysterious ‘signalling problems’ to make a rainy morning even worse. I honestly received the most unprofessional service possible today by Translink. You need to do so much better.

Why do Translink have no backup for crucial signalling systems failing during the rush hours? Why did the trains fail to stop at Adelaide for approximately an hour today? These questions still remain unanswered.

Read the article to hear my experience with their shocking service, and share. It’s the only way they’ll get better.

Hymn or Us 2012 – “To what extent should religion influence education?”

Last night was the 2nd Annual “GLYNI Presents: Hymn or Us” event at Belfast Pride, and this year, keeping with the religious connections for the last year, the specific topic this time around was “To what extent should religion influence education?” with the obvious focus being on LGBT affairs!

The Dangerous World of Gay Cures – Patrick Strudwick

Tonight, Europa Hotel played host to the annual Belfast Pride Amnesty International lecture, as part of Pride Week. I was at the event and, for those of you unlucky to miss it, I thought I’d take some notes and write up the meat of the discussion, and my two pennies on the issues raised. It’s also the first time in a while that I’ve thought back to my own difficult period, one I rarely talk about from when I was around 14 and 15, where I was involved briefly online with such a ‘cure’ support network.

Stupidest Cardinal in the world?

Cardinal Keith Michael Patrick O’Brien. You. Are. Not. Worthy. Of. RESPECT. And I will give you NONE. Deciding to take himself to the Sunday Telegraph to bash at gay marriage, this idiot basically trolled the entire country. It’s people like this that get me angry at religion. You wonder why there are so many people without faith, when you are so out of touch and nausea-inducing? As my friend Adam said, it’s almost the perfect pro-gay strategy. I’m not sure we need to even say anything, as people like that just look like absolute fools to, I hope, the majority of logical-thinking people. Go back under your rock. Get out of my life, let me live equally and stop thrusting your religion, your sexuality, down my throat. Sound familiar?

When I went husky trekking, with Bessy Bell Husky Trekkers

Husky trekking isn’t exactly the first thing you think of in Northern Ireland. “Don’t you need snow?” I thought. NUH-UH! It may often be cold and shitty in Northern Ireland, but we don’t get nearly enough snow to make snow sledding possible. The alternative? Scooters, courtesy of Bessy Bell Husky Trekkers!

Sonic is 20 – A look back through two decades of cool blue

A gleeful look back at Sonic through his 20 year history, and a review of the most recent game, Sonic Generations. I’ve completed it, and you know you want to hear my take on it all. Sonic is cool, and you are cool for liking him, right? I has pretty pictures too!
