Alright. I edited my Mirror's Edge playthrough with House of Pain's Jump Around for a different type of Let's Play.

On our newest episode of Previously on X-Men, we interview author J.M. DeMatteis about his time writing Iceman and X-Factor, as well as his process and collaborating in the comic medium.

I tried to write a piece about why the movement works so well for me in Prey and the Dishonored series by Arkane Studios:

I've just noticed this. What a great project! Really enjoyed those articles. My girlfriend is dragging me along to their gig in Dublin in May. Quite looking forward to it now.

Thanks! I need to get back to it, haven't had much time since Christmas but I really want to finish it off.

Well, please do. It's certainly worthwhile. I might actually steal your idea! It's a great way of preparing for a new work.

Wish I was going to see him this year, he's in Birmingham right near my birthday. I saw him on my 29th birthday back in 2008, it was brilliant.

Yeah I'm quite excited for it now. I've been going through their back catalogue and, almost inevitably, there's a string of songs that I love but didn't realise were theirs. So I'm turning into an accidental fan.

I'm also just looking forward to seeing a band on stage. Until very recently my musical life was spent in dark rooms listening to machine music. A real-life, honest to goodness band is still something of a novelty for me, particularly in an arena setting.

Brighton branch.

I believe he’s moved away since the tragedy with his son but he still has a lot of contacts here so you still see him around a fair bit.

I didn't realise it was a branch but went to the Liverpool one over Christmas when visiting my bro. Really good food. Very sad about his son, on a more important note, I can't begin to imagine.

It's evident in his work since, which of course you'd expect. The last album was just an outpouring of grief.

I'm sure he'll be back to pumping out those uplifting pop songs he's well known and loved for in no time.

I was lucky to be invited onto Empire’s film podcast this week to give my opinions on their 100 greatest films of the 21st century (so far). My human name is Luke, so enjoy my dulcet, Dudley tone :)

That's pretty impressive, how did you end up getting on the show?

They put out a Tweet in January asking for people to DM them if they were interested in taking part. I sent a message and forgot all about it until the Friday before last, when they invited me down. I’m still thinking of films that I’m surprised didn’t make their top 100 list (no Hunger Games, and those films were *huge*)

It's a horizontal shooter! But you can eat lots of cakes and candy! (All food in this game is vegan.)
