Was European Settlement in Australia an ‘Invasion’?

The following is purely the opinion of the author, Joey Mann. This article may not represent the views of Skymann as a whole.

News Corp. is reporting that the University of New South Wales has started referring to Captain James Cook’s discovery of the Australian continent and later the colonisation of Australia as an invasion. This has, rather unsurprisingly, pissed off shock-jocks and right-wing commentators.

Sticker-Fearing

One Year Later: The Sims 4

Just over a year ago, picked up a Limited Edition copy of The Sims 4. I was hyped. I had played 5 minutes of the Create-A-Sim before pre-ordering it at EBX in on my birthday the year before.  Up until that point, I had probably played the Create-a-Sim demo that came out a month before for about a combined two hours. But, after my hyper fanboyism wore off (which is why I haven’t recorded a new let’s play of it since Episode 6). I just didn’t play the game. I didn’t know why, but it took about three-to-five months for me to realise that I hadn’t touched a game that was supposed to last me six years that I paid ~$90 for, for three months. I played laughably short sessions (maxing out at 10 minutes) in that time, but I had never taken the time to sit down and play it except for that session where I recorded the six episodes of my let’s play series for it. In fact, I had played more of The Sims 3 since Sims 4’s release than The Sims 4.

INFINITE ZOMBIES (First Time Reactions, Episode 5)

In this episode, Joey plays an awful zombie shooter from the cesspool that is the YoYo Games Sandbox. Joey thinks it’s called the “Sandbox” because it’s where little kids go to play games and flick sand in people’s eyes (with their terrible graphics and gameplay).
