This thing about what Mr Tan did in his shed. Presumably because he'd rather be in his shed all evening than in the family home.
This thing about some entirely unnecessary annual update. This thing in which Bill Gates reveals how often - and when! - he reboots his PC. This thing about the difference between an "avalanche" and an "OVERLOAD" because it beats having to feign interest in the game. This thing which was an excuse to use a photo of a lady. She gets less attractive the longer you look at her, so only give it a few seconds. This thing about Maria Sharapova launching mobile phone accessories, because we like lady tennis players and you can't not use pictures like this when they come along:
Last night, I had a dream.
It was a dream of a wonderful place.
It was a dream of a Sega bar, where yuppies like ourselves could unwind, surrounded in various Sega memorabilia. Like Hard Rock Cafe, but MUCH COOLER.
In this dream, I ordered a beer, which came in a pint glass with a huge picture of Sonic on. The beer was coloured blue, and contained caffeine, so you too could feel you were as fast as Sonic. Cocktails came in a variety of novelty shaped glasses, one of which was Ulala, and you could drink a suitably orange cocktail from it. There was a Dreamcast on the wall, and Daytona USA cabinets as far as the eye could see.
I was so pleased that I found this bar that I asked some tall, long haired man in a leather jacket (who, of course, in real-life would not be allowed in due to draconian dress-code rules) to take a photo on my mobile phone so I could send it to UK:R. However, on consulting my mobile phone when I awoke, I found that I had not just fallen asleep in a drunken stupor with the ability to piss a blue stream from all the Sonic beer, but had just had a dream.
This is a dream that Sega must make reality. Please look into it.
"News just in: people are still IDIOTS. Don't know if you've seen GAME's Greatest Games of All Time list (chosen by the proles for the proles) but in a total not-shocking turn of events it's predicatbly moronic with Call of Duty 4 coming out in the top spot and GTAIV hitting the number four spot, games most people would have barely spent seconds playing before voting for them. The rest of the list is mostly made up of shit people only vote for because they're repeatedly told by others that the games are amazing.
"In response to this depressingly retarded turn of events I've put the list through a RIGOROUS and SCIENTIFIC process whereby I've removed every game that has only been out for 18 months, every game which only made it onto the list because it has already appeared on every single other "100 Greatest Games Ever" list (Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy, etc) and every football game (immediate disqualification on grounds of not really being videogames) as well as every game only played by rabid PC nerds who only ever play one game (Warcraft, Command and Conquer, Counter Strike, etc). The remaining games are, therefore UNDENIABLY the hundred greatest games of all time.
"The resulting list reads as follows:
1-20 Sonic The Hedgehog (SEGA Mega Drive)
21-40 Elite (BBC Micro)
41-60 Shenmue (SEGA Dreamcast)
61-80 Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (SEGA Mega Drive)
81-100 TimeSplitters 2 (Multiformat)
"Can't argue with the science - Dolan."
This thing about Sainsbury's breaking. There was a tense and long-winded discussion about apostrophe placement behind the scenes. This thing about what Peaches Geldof probably did last night. This thing about what does not constitute a fun activity. This thing which is just an alternate take on this thing about that thing. This thing about, funnily enough, PS3 being shite. This thing about a Fujitsu mobile phone, because you can't not use pictures like this when they come along:
Final Fantasy XIII (2010) Final Fantasy XIV (2015) This thing which was a poor attempt at humour regarding Steve Jobs' weight loss. We can only hope he's been on a diet and isn't suffering a relapse of his pancreatic cancer, as that would make it even less amusing. This thing about (a) the state of modern dance music, (b) two things we thought had closed, (c) what makes a good holiday nowadays. This thing about how receptionists aren't as good as they used to be. This thing about some Xbox 360 RPGs, because it's been the worst week for video game news in living memory. This thing in which we called another blog LIARS and got away with it. Mainly because, 24-hours later, it turned out they were lying. Or at least easy to trick by emailing "news" to. This thing about how men are becoming almost entirely shed-based beings, because you can't not use pictures like this when they come along: This thing in which we "live blogged" the downloading of the Ninja Gaiden II demo. This thing about people whose job is listing the specs of laptops about to suffer a bit more. This thing in which we get to the heart of the racism-in-games debate. This thing about what a clever man made for Wii. This thing about the the Eee PC 901, because you can't not use pictures like this when they come along:

RYAN ALSO COMPILED AND UPLOADED THE FOLLOWING LIST OF YOUTUBE DELIGHTS:
"G'day, I've been a reader of UK Resistance for a long time - since I was a huge SEGA fan back in the day. I keep trying to get away but they keep bringing me back in, then beating me with a pipe. Why won't they stop?
"Anyhow, I've recently added a whole bunch of classic SEGA bits from so many years ago, stuff that's never made it to YouTube beforehand, and will either make you laugh, or make you embarrassed to be a SEGA fan.
The Bizarre comedic stylings of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Filled with "WTF?"

"I've also got my original SEGA Club Membership cards, as well as all those damn Ladybird books you've been showing recently - including others which you haven't shown yet, like the 'Where's Sonic?' spectacular sequel, 'Where's Sonic NOW?' - Ryan."
A site about games and game paraphernalia and how nothing's as good as we remember it, probably because we used to inhabit a FANTASY WORLD.
What are we half-heartedly skimming RIGHT NOW?
Each post .02% worse than the last.
THE HTML ERAS
When men used to till the pages by hand.
12 years of wheat and chaff in one vast and impenetrable mass.
Some updates weren't universally hated by the entire world within seconds of being uploaded.
Links to that blog of yours you started up and were excited about for a whole weekend.
Some people we might've MET. Or at least seen in a room and been near.
Other sites we are happy to officially endorse without requiring Adwords spend.
Having one is compulsory, apparently. Ours is here. It is not meant to be funny.
People off the internet. Quality and commitment levels may vary.
It came with the template. Maybe in 2014 we'll jump on board the Twitter train and put that in here. Or a radio. That'd be nice.
