Gamerpicture history

I have been on the internet for about thirteen years now and quite early on I’ve realised the importance to ‘managing’ my online identity and keeping it in sync and recognisable. Googling ‘carocat’ in most cases leads to an online profile of me somewhere and I tend to use the same avatar in most places […]

This dream I had that turned out to be true. Well, kinda..

It’s being said that we dream every time we’re asleep and just don’t always remember them when we wake up. I can count all the dreams I’ve had in the past year on one hand and they were all pretty strange with people that I know in different roles and situations acting completely atypical. I […]

Some are in German, so please use a translator. Der Markt verlangt nach Sensation [Zeit.de] – It appears that I’m […]

Say hello to an old friend – the Killerspiele discussion is back!

Time for another podcast, yes, the ConsoleMonster podcast number 8 [or 7, part 2] is out now. I’m not too sure if I like it, James seemed to have been on a little Vendetta and left a lot of stuff in that I thought was going to be removed! But, of course I’m only joking […]

The new Halo 2 maps.

So, I haven’t played Halo2 in ages and originally wasn’t intending to ever play it again, however with the arrival of the new maps I could hardly resist. Especially as these new maps only cost $4 and one of them is a remake of Hang ‘em High, a Halo 1 map. I would have never […]
