Not sure how many people here read this, maybe none, but this web-site was always good for a laugh and for there general hated of all things Sony and for there 'blue skies in games' campaign.

 

My personnel highlights were the 'baby p' post they did. http://www.ukresistance.co.uk/2009/01/sick-baby-p-simulator-peddled-by.html

 

Their Animal Crossing review. They put hours into AC and just showed off what they had earned. http://www.ukresistance.co.uk/2006/12/there-is-only-one-game-of-2006/

They loved games because they were fun not because they looked cool and grim.

Sad day :(

It did it did but maybe that's because they fell out of love with gaming.

 

Glad there was at least someone else who has heard of this great site.

I just had a quick skim read, it seems funny, and the kind of writing style i like. Shame it's going down!

Yeah I used to read it quite regularly. I think he shut it down on Monday even MCV wrote about it sort of verifying it wasn't an early April fools joke. I guess it's just down to the stagnant nature of the games industry. You can only make the same joke so many times before it just gets a bit sad.

 

Will miss the blue skies in games campaign and the spach miel en frie (extreme sp) red theme they had a while back. The hatred for all thing sony was funny. One that comes to mind was when sony announced the price of the PS3 and they had an image of Kaz Hirai crossing his fingers.

I got 2 posts on UK:R! It always made me smile. But, so sad now...

 

I was kind of praying it was an April Fools.

 

So long as Idiot Toys keeps going...

And there was me thinking this was to do with Libya.

 

Not heard of this site until today. But, it's always sad to see a site vanish.

Aigoo. I must admit I haven't visited in ages but UKR will be missed. The Triforce doesn't get updated much either :(
