Our Hungarian Editor is taking a break this month to concentrate on the bumper Christmas issue. Which leaves me in charge of this, our 69th go at a magazine – dedicated to all that is homebrew. I’ve already sacked the tea boy and sat the work experience girl inappropriately on my knee.
Homebrew is ace. And rubbish. Its euphoria inducing and yet it’s able to reduce a man to tears of frustration in the early hours of the morning. It’s something to get us involved and something to remind us to leave it to the experts. It’s all of the above and we love it.
Most of our Rodent team have had a crack with varying degrees of success. This month you can boil along with Bog as he attempts to do something useful with his PSP. Have yourself a marvel at Tim Hunkin’s bonkers arcade while you’re at it, have a read about one of the worlds best shareware successes, Llamatron, and share in the highs and lows of Ely’s and Ahchay’s programming exploits. I have a crack at bedroom coding in this issue too and go a bit wrong in the head.
We also present Rodent Ware, which, quite frankly, pisses all over Wario’s efforts. Do feel free to submit your own offensive, funny or potentially quite playable attempts to the comment thread and why not have a crack at our competition? We want the worst game ever – designed and written by you.
We may have survived last month’s war issue but we lost one of our boys last month. Well, kind of. Swith has packed his Amiga 1200 away to make space for the Xbox 360. We’ve dispensed with the traditional military send off and sent him round London with his little Commodore pensioner for one last journey.
Oh yeah, one last thing, fucking T-shirts: boys and girls we've created a bunch of quality designs and that and we are over the bloody moon with them. Click here to buy the bastards and then send us pictures we can pleasure ourselves over.
Also - PLEASE put in your votes and comments for game of the year. Your opinions, your actual farkin' words themactualselves will appear in our bumper end of year thing.
At ease gentlemen, my new 14 year old buxom tea girl has put the kettle on for you. Feet up and read on for another dose of original spirit!
Deputy Editor - November 2005
We love them videogames, we love wearing clothes too, so what we thought we should do is combine the two. So we have. There's a lot of love in here, readers and please feel free to contribute your own designs - it's all good. Love you all!
We're delighted to be able to announce that Rodent is now all RSS'd up.
