Broken Sword Trilogy (Steam) - £0.99

If like me you were a fan of these classic point-and-click adventures, then there's good news for you this bank holiday weekend!

You can re-live hours of your childhood (most of which were probably spent trying to get past that goat) on Steam, and pick up the first 3 games of the Broken Sword series for less than £1. Crazy money..

Were you a fan of the series? Have you since played the fourth and fifth games? Let us know!
Game of Thrones too dark? Learn to tune your TV!

So says Game of Thrones cinematographer Fabian Wagner.

If you found yourself squinting at the TV and/or changing your settings in the early hours of Monday to try and see what was actually happening in parts of the latest episode, you're certainly not alone! Many fans have commented about it on social media with some claiming it to feel like they're watching a bootleg, and have sought clarification about scenes that were particularly difficult to decipher what was actually happening.

However, Fabian felt the need to publicly defend the production of the episode and instead placed the blame with its viewers:
Fabian Wagner said:
A lot of the problem is that a lot of people don’t know how to tune their TVs properly [...] A lot of people also unfortunately watch it on small iPads, which in no way can do justice to a show like that anyway.
I don't know about you, but I find that statement quite offensive and a bit of a cop-out. I for one haven't felt the need to tweak the...
Assassin's Creed Unity - Free for PC

It seems that Assassin's Creed may yet become more than a game series (and a poor film adaptation that I promise not to mention again).. It's Unity entry, has been of particular interest since the awful events that transpired in Paris on Monday 15th April. For those not in the know, this game featured a particularly detailed replica of the now fire-devastated Notre-Dame cathedral, which is said to have taken somewhere around two years to recreate with such accuracy.

This has not gone unnoticed, and if rumour is to be believed the rebuilding works of this beautiful cathedral is likely to use the building's model from the game in some parts as a reference. Additionally, Ubisoft themselves have made a large financial contribution to the restoration project.

Ubisoft said:
In light of Monday's events, we will be donating €500,000 to help with the restoration and reconstruction of the Cathedral. We encourage all of you who are interested to donate as well. In addition, we want...

Wake up, Neo..
The Matrix has you...
Follow the white rabbit.
Knock, knock, Neo.

..and that's quite enough of that! Just a quick notice to inform you that the green theming option within the "Customise" menu has been given a Matrix makeover.

I felt that it was previously the weakest of the designs, and it just made sense to go with inspiration from The Matrix as an alternative :cool:
Scheduled Maintenance - 13/04/19

UPDATED 15/04/19
Generally speaking the maintenance has gone ok, and the majority of add-ons have been updated to their latest versions without issue.

Unfortunately with a couple of new add-ons I have installed, I've noticed one or two bugs creeping up here and there (hence the current build is in beta state).. I'm hopeful that I can remedy these without needing to take Nerdface offline again. If I can't resolve them however, I'll be making a call to @UrbanDarkness.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE
Nerdface will be unavailable for what I anticipate will be a short amount of time on Saturday 13th April, for some scheduled maintenance.

A number of add-ons have been updated this week. It makes sense to tackle these all at once and make sure that everything continues to function as intended.

On an unrelated note, there was an unscheduled 3-4 hour period of non-availability in the early hours of this morning due to a database backup task timing...
