Time to be SiNful

It's here in a week; built using Valve's Source engine, the follow-up to the SiN series: Sin Episodes: Emergence takes on an episodic structure, expanding on the role of Colonel John R. Blade, a battle worn hero in charge of HardCorps. Joining Blade on his mission are JC, a HardCorps hacker with a secret to keep, and Jessica Cannon, a fiery rookie who can find her way into any secure facility. This first chapter features never-before-seen weapons, characters and environments along with a host of interactive options, paying homage to its predecessors, SiN and its expansion pack, Wages of SiN.

Writing on his developer blog on the game's official website, Shawn "CodeNinja" Ketcherside -- the lead game designer praised the SiN Episodes team for all their hardwork and dedication in creating what he calls "one of the most fun shooters" that he has ever played, Ketcherside says that he finds himself "straddling two worlds" -- one world that provides great pride in what was created with Episode One but also another world that "humbles" him when he sees what is planned for Episode Two.

SiN Episodes: Emergence is already preloading on Steam, Valve's online content delivery service, and will be available at retail outlets and for play via Steam, on May 10th. I'll tell you all about it once I get a chance to play it.

Sorry for the random fact but time is short my friends, run to the hills, buy bottled water and tins of beans, make use of the Creedon War Bunker, the end of the world is nigh:
At exactly 1 hour, 2 minutes and 3 seconds on the morning of 4th May 2006, the time and date figures put together would read 123456
01:02:03 04/05/06

Fantastic unless your American when it makes no sense whatsoever given they put the month first...

@ Former Grunt: Christ man, here's a picture of a semi-nekkid Alexis!

@ Ricky: I hope this unusual numerical allignment wasn't the cause of all those problems I had to mail to Mr.Andrew today LOL. Shit! I've only 15 mins to seal the bunker...

How many people did you NOT take into the bunker? How many did you leave behind?

Cool Man! That's exactly what I wanted.

Colonel, Grunt, peddling CG porn is a crime in some Sci-Fi novels.

Guns, Ricky G, The Colonel would have to stock the CreedonBunker with lots & lots of nubile young women to help repopulate the planet after the "end of the world". Yes, a rational individual could agrue whats the point in planning to repopulat the world after it's ended but nobody ever said the Colonel was rational.

The plan would be to wage war on the other survivors through a comprehensive breeding program.

The problem with this plan is the Colonel's tastes.

Thankfully, while this blog does not exist in 'reality' it's not in a "science-fiction novel" and therefore it's not a crime.

*phew* there I was having my identity changed and a plastic surgery appointment booked. I'm just sorry that I didn't see that before I burned my fingerprints off with acid :(
