  • Quantum Leap As Seen By Gaming Mill.

    12 October 2018 ( #quantum, #leap, #quantum leap, #sam beckett, #al, #dean stockwell, #scott bakula, #star trek, #enterprise )

    I've created my own first series of Quantum Leap in a series of small strips. Starring Scott Bakula as Dr Sam Beckett (and loads of other characters too, included a chimp at one point - I'm not kidding you!) and also Dean Stockwell as Admiral Al Calavicci...or...

  • Welcome to the Gaming Mill Blog!

    07 January 2013

    Greetings, Gaming Mill Fans! How are you? Alright? Good - that makes me happy! Welcome to the Gaming Mill blog anyway! I decided to start this because a few of my friends on Facebook and some viewers of my YouTube channel suggested that they'd read it...

  • Don't try nutmeg.

    07 January 2013

    One of the bad guys When I was at school, my friend Red Michael read that sailors in the olden days used to mix a load of ground nutmeg in water and knock it back be cause it 'supplemented their rum rations' or something. Later that day we went down into...

  • Elite: Dangerous

    08 January 2013

    I still think this image is amazing For the last ten years or so at least I've been going on about how the 8-bit classic video game Elite needed a reboot, and not in that rubbish Spider Man type of way last year - that wasn't a reboot, that was just a...

  • Strange Events

    09 January 2013

    When I was younger, I was looking at some ants. I've always found ants fascinating and I was watching an army of red ants going to and fro from their nest; their doorway was a crack in the kerb at the back of my mum's old house, back when we lived right...

  • Christmas and the Fat Idiot

    11 January 2013

    NOT where I work At the supermarket where I work there are a number of security guards that work for a separate security firm. I'm not entirely sure how their shifts work because sometimes there can be weeks gone by at a time without me seeing some of...

  • Selling your music on iTunes.

    29 January 2013

    Noel's nightmare / My dream For those that may not remember much about it the year 2012 was memorable for many reasons. Whether it be Megaupload being shut down in January of that year or the fact that Noel Edmonds did something weird to his beard colour...

  • Off To London...

    21 February 2013

    It was August about five years ago and more or less 7pm. I was waiting at my house for Bad Feri. He was the landlord of my then local bar and he had taken the night off. "So you've never been to a casino?" he said, somewhat incredulously. "No. Never."...

  • A Pleasant Walk Home From Work

    27 July 2013

    The other night I was walking home from work. I'm not too sure of the time but it can't have been too early because the day had not long had its light show stolen by the thieving fingers of the night; I suppose it was about 9.30pm or thereabouts. My walk...

  • Grand Theft Gordon [Ramsay]...

    30 March 2014

    I've got no idea how this game would work but hey, I've come up with the cover art so it's a start! Does anyone know anyone in the gaming industry that could make my game concept a reality? I've approached Team17, the makers of the Worms series of games...

  • Burning Magnesium

    13 September 2014

    Followers of my blog (which, as of now, equals ZERO - thanks for that!) might be interested in my latest YouTube shenanigans where I spend a good amount of time just burning magnesium. It was filmed in full 1080p HD! I used a tripod and all that sort...

  • Where To Buy Games...

    02 August 2014

    Where do I buy my games from is a question I am seldom asked but I feel I should answer it nevertheless. Many moons ago (yes, I still count time in moons - imagine THAT as watch concept; it'd throw Apple's rumoured iWatch out the window, I can tell you)...

  • The Oculus Rift DK2.

    06 September 2014

    I received my Oculus Rift DK2 yesterday...only about a month later than scheduled. Look at my finger on the left! I bought the first Oculus Rift earlier this year. It was the first the time I've ever used VR and I was blown away by it. I had a chance...

  • Important news regarding Gaming Mill.

    09 March 2013

    Hello! Sorry about the lack of posts here but I've been very busy recently - I had to use up my remaining holiday time at work before the end of March so I've had three and a half weeks off. What have I been doing? Bugger all but eating junk and playing...

  • A Quick Fact...

    31 August 2013

    Me: "The smallest man ever to live was only seven centimetres tall. Welshman Dai Llandudno was killed at the age of 27 when his neighbour's cat climbed in through his bedroom window and stalked him down like a rat. His autopsy results showed that the...
