Who’s role models do you really think you are?
Young girls that make themselves sick,
Feel guilty for being size 14
Living in their self-hate
Drivin’ on 9
Looking out my window sill
Wondering if I want you still
Wondering what’s mine
Hooo yeah! I like this – it looks like it might be a lot darker and grittier than the ‘prequels’ so that’s positive. And with DICE’s Battlefront coming out in November, this promises to be a good year for Star Wars fans.
And hopefully, no Jar Jar in any of them… One can always hope.
Beautiful trailer for a fictional animated film, bringing to mind the work of Hayao Miyazaki.

If you, like I did, grew up playing video games on the Amiga back in the early 90s, you probably came across Another World, a classic game with what at the time was revolutionary character animation and an original story that drew you in from the beginning. It is also one of the most frustrating games I have ever played, with parts so insanely difficult to complete they leave you swearing over the keyboard after failing for what feels like hundred times. But that only makes the feeling when you finally complete a part even better.
Recently the game has been released in an updated version for playing without needing an emulator, with high-resolution graphics and improved sound for those of us wanting to (re)experience one of the best video games ever. You can download the short demo at the Official Site, and the registration fee for the full game is only seven Euros – really cheap for this much retro-gaming enjoyment!
Also, don’t miss the excellent write-up at Binary Bonsai entitled How I learned everything I need to know about games from Another World.
