I realised for the first time over the weekend that… I’m missing the games industry!Games Industry, Job
I was looking at the new version of Jetpac the other day; this is an update of the old Ultimate Spectrum game of the same name, running on XBOX360 Live Arcade – it looks fab, and almost worth buying a console for. Updating this game for the XBOX is, although a no brainer, an inspired move.
Anyway, more to the point, I noticed while reading the RareWare site that Chris and Tim Stamper had left Rare. This was news that although not unexpected, heads of companies tend to leave 3 to 5 years after a buyout, however I hadn’t noticed it…
Ultimate and Rare were responsible for some of the best games ever made, and if it hadn’t been for setting up Smoking Gun, I would have joined them back in 97. They were and still are, the only games company that I would really like to work for. However, with the Stampers gone, I don’t think my feelings would be the same. That said, whatever the Stampers decide to persue in the future, the chance to work with them would be one of the few things to tempt me back into the games industry.Rare, Ultimate, Ultimate Play The Game, Spectrum, Jetpac, Chris Stamper, Tim Stamper, Job
The Canadian Geese have been slowly returning to North Harbour over the last few weeks. I find it interesting to watch them wander around the grounds in groups of two… they pair for life… are they happy? Who knows they always looks the same! 🙂North Harbour, IBM, Canadian Geese, Canadian Goose, Goose, Geese, Pair, Life, Happy

Anyway, what I saw was fantastic… she’ll really knows how to entertain and put on a show. It’s a brilliant concert for a brialliant album. I was thoroughly entertained… I just need to watch it all now!
