An embarrassing pun heralds the unveiling of the WoS Game Of The Year 2005!
8 December 2005
Update, and a slightly new look, for One Line World. The more exciting news, though, is that from here on in, OLW will feature a new review every single day. Unless I run out of games, obviously. Which isn't very likely.
15 November 2005
Last night, I went to see Sandman author Neil Gaiman give a reading of his new novel at Waterstones, and learned something I didn't know about a PC game. Weird!

I was going to bang on about the election, when I stumbled across this classic movie (20MB Realplayer version - email if you're interested in the full-length one), that summed up the situation we're all in much more precisely than I could have.
The phone box (red, helpfully) represents another big Labour majority. The bloke in the suit is all of us. What happens in the film is where we're all going if we don't do something about it tomorrow.
Vote, chums. Please. Vote tactically, even if it means doing the unthinkable and voting for a Tory this time (don't worry, they can't get a majority, Blair is just lying because he's scared). Don't cynic out of it because you think they're all the same. Don't vote on trivial "local issues". Vote for a government. Nothing less than our freedom is at stake.
