January 2013

In January of last year a group of friends and siblings from Midlands, Ireland banded together to form the band The Winter Passing. After spending their first year playing live, recording split vinyls with Forrest and Sleeping Weather the band are now set to release their first EP in March: Scrapbook.

With a lot of shit hitting the fan last week, the Bastards were forced to open up a portal to a world last tread in a past life.

It's surely a coincidence when two four-panel manga-based anime series of almost the exact same premise and run at the same length of time arrive in the same season, yet it has happened here this winter of 2013 with the release of Choboraunyopomi's Ai Mai Mi and Kagari Tamaoka's Mangirl! Does one series fare better than the other, or do both show have their highs and lows?

Ronimo Games' Joost van Dongen has created the best thing to happen to cello players since Apocalyptica first formed...

The Scribblenauts series has always brought the best -- and sometimes worst -- of everyone's imagination alive in a video game. Where else could you have Santa Claus battle Cthulhu in a desert setting, or a fancy top hat-wearing robot ride a purple donkey? In the new Scribblenauts Unlimited for the Wii U the world of Maxwell and his magic notebook has expanded, as have the limits of what you can create.

Creat Studios' latest game Labyrinth Legends takes just about everything we love about dungeon crawlers and crams it into a little adventure. Just be prepared to throw the controller at the TV in some places.

It's the first recording of the new year, and the Bastards are still suffering from the Dick Clark Hangover.
