This week will be the promised weeks ago review of my Sennheiser HD-201's which finally came, a day after I made a note of it in my blog; Maybe some Royal Mail posty read what I put and decided to get into his truck with just that to ensure a speedy delivery to make me write positive things about his company. Fuck that.
While I was designing First Fantasy I took some time to play some old-school RPG's to give me a rounded idea of how it should play. Doing this only made me nostalgic with games from my childhood. Because everyone does SNES/NES lists, here is a short-list/micro review of my most favourite PS1 games from a time when Cynical Discourse was closer to Happy Chit-Chat and the internet composed of nothing more than Doom levels and Geocites.
This week I've discovered a goldmine. No, not one where I can use monkeys to harvest precious stones out of- But a comedy goldmine. One where people go for everything from relationship advice to anniversary gifts, this is Yahoo Answers.
Well here I am, back from holiday and tired as fuck. Well the last bit was only relevant to a few days ago when I actually came back and slept off the jet lag of time travel. Upon my return, I was told that Cynical Discourse now appears under the Suggestions section of Google. Being Mr. Cynical Discourse I tried it out myself and-
It seems Cynical Discourse is moving up in the world! With over 100 weekly readers (or so Google Analytics suggests seeing the peak in traffic every Sunday) it has grown from its humble roots of a single David Cameron post and the promise of a Silent Hill 2 review. (which is indefinitely on hold until it stops mind-fucking me) As promised I have two posts up my sleeve which I shall reveal later on, one will come today and the second one will come tomorrow; If that's not enough for you people I'm also going to have a mid-week post from now on which will involve the main topic of the following post.
Also as some of you have pointed out- The Site's title font has changed. This was because I noticed on some computers it was shown as some school-girl squished together writing which looked about as professional as Pakistan's flood gates.
This week's post is very early, why? Because I'm going on holiday with my girlfriend for a week. In the meantime, here's pac-man to keep you entertained.
Yeah it's not really much this week but I have been working flat-out on First Fantasy which should be out by the end of the week!
Last week I mentioned that I would give details this week about my current game project which i've been working on for a few weeks now. Well here it is:
First Fantasy - A Satirical RPG.
(Don't worry CD readers! (no pun) at the bottom of this article i'll still have some ranting goodness!)
First Fantasy is a satirical RPG that parodies and pokes fun at the current RPG's of today; it contains many Meta references and homage to the many great classic RPG's. Although despite being satirical, the game remains an RPG at heart boasting a rich and full RPG experience with an epic story, characters with personalities and more boss fightsthan you can shake a stick at.

Rants of the Week
#1: Ever noticed how only shows late at night have sign language? Last time I checked being deaf doesn't make you nocturnal.
#2: Why do Apple stand by the fact their Mac isn't a work computer? If you buy a Mac it's mainly for your career, if you was getting a 'fun' computer I would imagine you would want to play games and actually use programs other than Photoshop and After-effects which you just can't do since Mac doesn't support any of them. Oh and the only other reason you've got a Mac is because you're a spoilt rich kid and I hate you. Seriously, a windows laptop of the same spec is like £300($500)cheaper than a same spec Mac.
This week I originally intended to do a Tech Review on headphones, I bought on Monday from play.com, but even being dispatched on Wednesday I still haven't received them. So instead, I'm writing about an incident which happened to me on Friday; When I explored the strange dark voodoo of Windows Fonts.
Now recently in Britian we've had some of the hottest weather i've embraced in a long time. Now besides the fan remaining on max for most of the day i've decided that a small collection of rants should hopefully provide enough meriment until I can replenish the amount of water i'm losing from this heat.
Earlier on today I decided to try my email address I got from my domain host with the domain address Jack(at)Cynicaldiscourse.info. But, for some reason it has now stopped going through. Looking through their website i've found that they now charge for email which I knew nothing about; Unfortunately they won't see penny one from me so now i've made a new email account Cynicaldiscourse(at)Gmail.com. Which now fully functions and now actually lets me check my emails!
Apologies to those of you who may have emailed me in the past without recieving a reply; if you could resend your email to the new address i'll respond to it as soon as I can.
