Lately on One Button Monkey...
- Lately, Button Monkey has been ranting about politics. Everybody's Been Byrned is about the one-man ill wind Liam Byrne, and the problems he's both a cause and a symptom of. Fair Game is about George Osborne's attempt to confuse claiming benefit with being a criminal.
- More politics: Gideon and the Magic Money Car is a fairy story about a man who's no better at driving than he is at counting; Attack of the 40 Year-Old Mutant Cow Squirrel is about how a cow made of horse is actually a squirrel made in Chicago and imported from Chile; Telling Stories is about what the narrative sold by Osborne and Cameron says about themselves; Set a Thief...is about Blair, Clegg, G4S and the legacy of people who care more about legacies than people; Deregulating Vincent is about Adrian Beecroft and the right's love of marching backwards into the future; A Fit and Proper Person is about Jeremy Hunt, and how moral you need to be to steal a television; The World Turned Upside Down is about Workfare and class.
- Talking to the Wall is Button Monkey's extended ongoing rant about the difference between what games say and what they do. The latest instalment is Part Eight: Guff Wars: The Cataclimaxism, which is about why, when worlds burn, Nero is more likely to weep than to fiddle.
- More Talking to the Wall: Part One: Anger, Part Two: Shame, Part Three: Fables, Part Four: Bioware and the Death of Fun, Part Five: The Lying Game, Part Six: The Face of Nintendo and Part Seven: Idle Hands are equally bitter, and sometimes accidentally make sense, too.
