Grand Theft Auto – Vice City

Grand Theft Auto - Vice City

Well I was born in the 90’s and I must say, I kinda feel missed out. Why? Because I never got to meet Tommy Vercetti in the 80’s! The lead character in Rockstar Games (in my opinion) greatest game ever, GTA: VC. Amongst a sequel which successfully takes us into a different era each time, I must say that the 80’s seemed the most fun, by faaaaaaaaaaaaar. Even when comparing graphics and in-game mechanics, it still ROCKS. Literally. Even the radio stations are amazing. Having stopped playing this game religiously since 2004, I still find myself on YouTube jamming the tunes reminescing the good old sunset crusies in my infernus down by Vice Beach, woops I just ran someone over, great now I have a star… Atleast I don’t care about the sand in the car, which really isn’t mine.

On the general note, the GTA series is also probably the best series to ever have been released on gaming platforms. Nothing has ever come close to what GTA has provided us with. Many have tried to emulate similar systems but It’s kinda sad to see them get on those shelves, then stay there. It is rather difficult to find yourself a legit, brand spanking new copy of this. I fortunately, have what I think is a special edition, with ***GLITTER*** fonting! Never, ever will I be giving that away.

If you have never played this, you my friend have missed out. On a lot. Let alone the 70’s, this game heavily inspired not only myself, but most of my friends. 1990’s, our teenage lives, were made a heck of a lot better.

Thank you Rockstar Games.


Project: Missing Teeth – Semester 1 2011

Project: Missing Teeth

This image shows the façade of a mixed use building I had designed last year as a part of our design studio. The intention of the façade is to convey ideas of mixing, weaving, intertwining and is constructed of an iron composite material to reflect the train tracks on the rear of the site. Similar to the performances of a fence, the façade starts on the ground and elevates till it suits the façade heights of the adjacent buildings to maintain street front heirachy. Entrance into the complex through this wall was provided by careful placing of specific bars which stopped at junctions yet at the same time saving the form from traditional door systems.

Air New Zealand – All Black Livery

Air New Zealand - All Black Livery

The newest addition to the All Black Livery and also to our collection of 777-300ER’s.

This beautiful machine touched down on Runaway 23L at 0900 on the 12th of January, 2012 after a direct flight from the Boeing Base in Seattle, US.

Nothing quite better than the Airline of the Year with our very own, significant livery. This is also the largest full black painted airline in the world!

Enjoy 🙂

Just Cause 2 – PC

Just Cause 2 - PC

One of the top games I have ever played. This game packs a serious punch. The amount of things you can do… its just brilliant! From being able to blow up almost anything you see, to airlifting cars, boats, trucks! It’s just crazy! Awesome thing is that they’ve actually taken into account object weights and things like that! For example, a piece of shit helicopter is not able to lift a large truck! You actually need to find a cargo chopper! Speaking of lifting, it’s not some crane crap! It’s a device built onto the character Rico himself, called grapple. Being able to launch yourself towards buildings, then immediately parachuting to escape arsenic showdowns!! Argh! Better get this post over with, have some serious chaos to cause 🙂

YouTube it. This game seriously has been under advertised. It needs to be out there more! Thanks to my friend Byron Peard for the introduction! Here’s an image to show how beautiful the graphics are! More images soon.

10/10! Played on my DELL XPS 15! What an astonishing LAPTOP! 3D test later on this afternoon!

Recommend you try this game if you like the mechanics of GTA & DRIVER
