There's been a lot development in the world of video games recently, with Microsoft announcing the upgraded 36o Elite and Sony claiming record sales in the Euro Ps3 launch (it'll drop off soon though if the US and Japan are anything to go on) but this all pales into insignificance in comparison to the most amazing announcement ever: Sonic and Mario are going to appear together in a sports game on Wii!! It sound like an April Fool's joke but look it's real. I'm so happy I might cry...

I've had a productive few days, and have a new couple of things ready to show you. However for top secret reasons I can't show (most of) you the result quite yet. But soon my patient ones, soon. Right now I'm all creative-d out and must sleep.

Down there on the left at the bottom there is now a working subscribe button for the blog that takes you to our xml feed. I don't really know quite what that means, but I think if that means anything to you then you'll understand. I haven't quite worked out the main site news feed yet, so bear with me.

And so the PS3 has launched in Europe, at long last. Will it rock the world or fall on it's face? Only time will tell, but it's getting whupped in the USA and Japan, particularly by the Wii (woo!) and DS. Microsoft have been up to mischief at the Paris and London Launches (sailing a 360 branded boat past the former) which seems a bit petty and unsporting. Frankly if anything will sabotage the launch it's not anything MS are up to but the £425 price tag without any games.

Apparently people were able to walk into some stores and buy one without pre-order this morning, which means hopefully the scalpers who've bought 10 to put on ebay at massive mark-up will be out of luck. They deserve it! In other news sorry for no updates, very busy week again!

Ok, my latest animation is still underway, but I have been slightly lacking in the creative energy required to work on it this week. Hopefully there will be a day next week when I have the time and the inspiration at the same time- lately I've been feeling fired up and creative at the wrong times when I can't do much about it. But it is coming.... honest.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theatres has launched it's offical website. Check it out if only to see the awesome picture (that presumably they are going to be using for the poster) showing the team rendered in a proper movie poster stylee. And the new trailer is up there too.

Details are finally emerging about the eagerly awaited return of Futurama. The DVD movies that have been promised, and the new episodes commissioned for Comedy Central appear to now be one and the same, creator Matt Groening has revealed. The 4 ninety minute movies will also be divided into 16 episodes for TV. We'll have to wait until 2008 to see exactly how this will work (probably even longer here in the UK!). Fortunately we've got the Simpsons Movie to look forward to in the meantime!

When Dr Who hit it big in the ratings with family and adult audiences alike, it was inevitable that the BBC's main rival ITV would take a stab at the Saturday evening sci-fi/fantasy drama. What was less expected was that the resulting concoction Primeval would be as entertaining as it is. With one show left in it's run, and a second series given the go-ahead it can be judged to be a success (even if it didn't quite maintain it's first episode audience). OK it's nothing amazing, and it's attempts to be self-consciously cool fall flat, but it's entertaining hokum none-the-less. For those outside the UK, the show features the appearance of rips in time through which prehistoric beasties begin to run amok in modern day Britain. A bunch of quirky scientists and archaeologists find themselves charged with tracking down these 'anomalies' and trying to stop the creatures chowing down on the general public. Yep it's silly, but it's exiting, fun and amusing and infinitely preferable to the endless parade of reality tv, gritty dramas and karaoke contests that otherwise clog up UK telly schedules. And with such an appealing concept, I would not be at all surprised if it gets lined up for a US remake, or even movie, sooner rather than later.

A new animated project is underway. Not part of any existing series, it'll be a surprise when it's done. More details soonish. In other news, have you seen the first full length trailer for the Simpsons movie? Very exciting!

Hot Fuzz, Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's follow up to Shaun Of The Dead (and my most eagerly anticipated film of the last year) is making serious moolah at cinemas here in the UK. And it's only fair as it's a thoroughly fantastic flick. Whereas Shaun managed to be both hugely funny and a successful horror film (people who think it's a parody are missing the point) Hot Fuzz does the same for the explosive action police buddy movie.... and relocates it to the sleepy English countryside. Some reviews said it was too long, but in fact the huge build up to the ridiculously action packed climax only goes to make it more satisfying . And until then it's a who's-who of UK acting and comedy talent, all brilliantly filmed in Wright's fantastic style. It all goes to show there's more to the UK film industry than rom-coms and period dramas. It'll be interesting to see how it'll travel, but US audiences will get the chance to see when it hits there next month.
