    40 hour famine?

    Hey guys, I'm planning on doing 40 hour famine this year, but I'm not sure what to give up. As the name suggessts, you give up something for 40 hours, and people sponsor you for it - its a charity. Does anyone have any good suggestions?

    Games designing?

    Yeah that's the part I'm unsure of. I have very close to 0 artistic skill whatsoever, so I'm really only restricted to the either the coding or the project management side of games designing, unless there's another aspect of video games designing that doesn't involve art design or music (I...

    Games designing?

    Hey Escapees, I'm in my last year of high school right now, and right about now, I need to decide what course I want to do in university.

    Mandatory Physical Education

    I thought that PE was one of my more fun classes, even though I am absolutely atrocious at any physical activity. Maybe the act of throwing a ball at someone's face was very stress relieving? Btw, PE was compulsory for me from year 7 - 10 (Australian standards).

    Why are gamers so cheap? Should games cost more?

    Honestly, Americans only have to pay $60 for games. In Australia, we pay over $100 for our new games, which may have been fair enough back when the American dollar was stronger than ours, but nowadays, that's absolute crap. Either Australians should only have to pay $60 (the better option), or...

    Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Australia

    Australia is similar to Russia in the fact that the climate makes it extremely difficult for foreigners who aren't used to it adapt. However, our population density is extremely high around the coast, so I suppose that isn't a big deal. On a serious note, not much is known about the Australian...
