O-New: Now Extinct Website

O-REW 1: FrozenHaddock

…erm… O-REW…? What does that stand for…?

It stands for O-New(‘s? O-New isn’t me, I’m mushy) Review of Entertaining Websites…! Basically, this will be about reviews of those sites that I visit often…

…I’d like to start it off with a (now) inactive website: http://frozenhaddock.co.uk/…!

…So, FrozenHaddock/GeneShark/Tazzydevil XIII/Tom Gibbard is liek this Englishguy, and he runs a site called frozenhaddock (with a couple of other people). The main reason I view his site is because of his Flash Tutorial for an Avoider Game.

His AS2 Avoider Game Tutorial, although simple, is one of the best beginner flash tutorials on the ‘net. It shows you how to code, instead of those old-fashioned copypasta “tutorials”. Not only is it extremely informative, but it was also the basis for Michael James William’s AS3 Avoider Game Tutorial, which is now receiving large public recognition.

For those wannabe flash programming people, here’s an excellent place to start, although it is written in the older AS2. Also, it’s incredibly simple, so don’t come looking at this for finding out how to improve your frame rate in, oh, I don’t know, some sort of a Touhou danmaku game >_<

As said before, the tutorial is the highlight of this website; besides it, there’s really not much else. FrozenHaddock also has a forum, although, like the site, it is inactive.

So, visit the site, see what its like; and then, let’s just all let it Rest in Peace.

…The next O-REW will be about FrozenHaddock’s other site, MOREtotheGAME. Don’t visit it yet; I haven’t talked about it >_<

…Anyways, links:


^ …iPad games are more expensive. Big surprise there.


^ …An extremely in-depth analysis of all of twitter’s trending topics, brilliantly summarized in a simple graph using hundreds of thousands of different piles of data to accurately average out the results.


^ …A 74-year old man has some sort of thing in his blood that stops babies from having some sort of disease. This single man has stopped 2.2 million babies from dying…


^ Tokyo’s 2010 Anime Fair is starting…!


^ …The CEO’s of Apple and Google are… having coffee…?!


^ …Japan’s censoring stuff, giving its government a lot of power about what people are doing… communism! :P

…That’s all; will post other stuff tomorrow…!
