Hope you are doing ok Mike - we miss ya! How's life treating you?
Life is treating me great thanks buddy, hows you? Still as busy as ever?

Will definitely be around more in the coming months though mate, to be honest I haven't been playing many games of late (except DMC, Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs & Hitman) OK well maybe a few. I hung up my DJ phones after 10 years of playing a few years back and now learning to play guitar so that is where most of my free time goes now'a days.

I am sure the PS4 will slow my progress down some tho.

Re: GameSlurp 2.0

Just a quick update

As many of you know I have had some rotten luck this year, which has delayed work on the new GS. However I am pleased to report that I started work on it a few weeks ago, and have completed the auth system for the site - so people can register, verify account, log-in, log-out, create a profile with photo etc. It is the real basics of the site but a good solid start.

In the coming weeks I will be adding the base functionality of the site - where people can create posts - and will put it up at next.gameslurp.com where I will need a bunch of beta testers, so if you're up for it let me know or keep an eye out on this thread

Awesome, thanks Ian

It's not currently on github as I've only really just completed the base app - I took a little while longer on it as I am going to use the base app as the starting point for other projects too, so I've built in account security/failed login counts/email verifications etc

The site will be built in Rails 4 - are you familiar with it? If so you can help me with it

I have also just ordered a brand new server with two 2TB drives (in raid) and 48GB ram that should be going online this week and I am going to start moving the sites over to it.

Re: GameSlurp 2.0

I spend my days in PHP, HTML, Javascript and CSS. Haven't played with ruby and/or rails, from what I understand it is similar to PHP?

New server sounds good, can you imagine a console with that much RAM

Re: GameSlurp 2.0

If you know PHP it should be fairly easy to pick up Ruby - but be warned, if you do there's no going back

Ruby is just such a nice language to work with, easy to get into while also being very powerful, allowing us to do cool things such as metaprogramming.

The other great thing about Ruby is there are implementations that allow you to make Mac (with MacRuby) or iOS (with MobiRuby) apps (as well as Android amongst others). I actually made a Mac app as an experiment and put it on the App store - I was getting 20 a month from its sales (was selling for 99p). I've since taken it down tho as I didn't get time to update it, and it was only really an experiment.

Re console ram - yeah, I'm not sure when they didn't put in more than 8GB tbh, ram is almost always getting cheaper, and doubling it could have helped extend the life (not to mention ability) of the consoles. SO glad Sony didn't stick with 4GB!!

Re: GameSlurp 2.0

Thanks for the mail reminding me about GameSlurp. I remember joining off the back off the PS3 launch!

Be good to get back involved in the site again and join in with the hype on the next gen releases.

The bad news is I have just cancelled my preorder for PS4. It is released in the UK 29th November, the day I get back from my holiday in USA meaning not only will I be skint, ill be needing to spend more money on Xmas. When also taking into account the games that have been pushed back I can't justify picking it up yet. And to top it off all of my local mates have also cancelled due to lack of release games that appeal to us.

Going to hold out until after Xmas and then pick it up along with Killzone, upgrade my PS3 copy of BF4 and await further releases.

Anyway... Good to be back. Hope all are well!

Re: GameSlurp 2.0

Hey Dan - welcome back

Y U NO cancel holiday instead?

Or better still, Christmas

Seriously tho, I'm sure a couple of months wait will be fine - you may even see a bit of a price drop as retailers will start competing with each other.

How are the cars coming along? I am sure once Driveclub is out you won't be able to resist

Edit: Talking of DriveClub, BMW (yeah, BMW) just released this trailer featuring their new M235 Coupe
