Gaming: What I’m Looking Forward To (And Thinking About Buying A PS3 Just To Play) – The Last Of Us

So this game looks like it has everything I’ve ever wanted and dreamt of in a single title. Survival horror, immersive realism, post apocalyptia, clever A.I. (both in your ally and enemies) etc etc. And it’s just my luck that it’s exclusive to the PS3, when I own a fucking X-Box. However I’m still gunna keep watching YouTube videos about it and praying for a shock announcement of its availability for the 360. Here’s a gameplay trailer for you:

Lifestyle: How Not To... BASE Jump

Watch and learn kids, if you’re going to jump from an extremely tall structure (reference the refinery towers in the background for just how insanely high up they are) make sure your parachute’s gunna open…

And yes, apparently he did make a full recovery

Lifestyle: Wankered Wednesdays Is Back!!!

After a lot of consideration I feel that Wankered Wednesdays has been unduly neglected by myself. After all 4M is a blog for men and what do a lot of men like doing? Drinking. What’s especially good is finding new ways to get yourself legless other than pints and whateverbombs. Wankered Wednesdays is all about that so therefore it’s back and staying. I hope you lads appreciate it. So without further ado:

Northside Special
Northside Special (1930)
Something to warm your cockles on this grim British summers day.
You will need: 2 oz Jamaican ark rum, 3 oz orange juice, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 2 tsp caster sugar, 2 oz soda water
To prepare: 1. Place all ingredients, minus the soda water and sugar, in a glass
2. Dissolve the sugar and add it along with the soda water and some crushed ice.
Don’t bother with any fruity garnishes or anything like that, get it down you whilst toasting everyone that’s graduating this week. Well done.

Girls: Holly Peers

It’s raining, it’s pouring, what happened to all the girls wearing very little? Well here’s one.

Sport: Football Finally Gets Goal-Line Technology

So, years after almost every other internationally followed and supported sport in the world has embraced technology assisted refereeing and decision making football has reluctantly joined the gang. The two technologies that are going to be implemented are Hawk-Eye, the same Hawk-Eye that’s used at Wimbledon and for the Cricket and involves the positioning of cameras at either end of the stadium and GoalRef which works with a chip placed inside the ball reacting with a magnetic field on the goalposts. Both will send signals to the referees watch telling him whether or not the ball crossed the line and therefore whether he can award a goal or not and will be implemented in time for the 2014 world cup.
