Lots of New Stuff to See on the U.P.! 



Alright, so here we are with another update under the new and improved front page update system. There's quite a bit of ground to get covered, so let's get started.

- Okay, first of all, I've recently released the newest page of my long running (time-wise, if not length-wise) webcomic series: Work-Study! This particular episode reveals WS-Clovis's patented anger stress management techniques! You can find Episode 75 both on my Deviant Art Account and at the comic's official webpage here on Ultra Publications! Where ever you choose to read, you're sure to have fun.

- Secondly, Page 17 of Super Mario Bros. Unlimited has come out this week. Watch as the Mario Bros finally get back to the Princess's Castle, only to find out that their worst fears were true (don't look at me like I've just given a spoiler, if you didn't see this coming you need your head checked).

- Furthermore, we have a new video game review of Mass Effect. This review comes to us from our vew own forum user: Thunder God X. The discussion thread for the review can be found here.

- Lastly, we apologize for the current mess and constantly changing nature of the Video Game review section of this website. We are currently in the process of rennovating the area. It will be stabilized, and better looking than ever, soon enough.

IGN reviews Mario Kart, and it looks amazing. I can't wait to sink my teeth into this one!

The New & Improved Update System 



Long have there been problems with the current update system to the website. Most of this centered around the fact that LK's grammar/spelling is attrocious, and I'm particular about how things are spelled and said. Up until this point only LK could modify the update list, and so all updates had to go through his lack of care for the English language. However, no more! Now not only can I dynamically input my own news updates, I can even edit LK's (and don't think I won't)!

Now, with all of that out of the way, there's been some recent news developments:

- Firstly, Cryo has finally deigned to join the new forum and post on it... but only a little bit. Perhaps he'll be more active in the future. After all, where would we be without his trilogy game?

- Secondly, Dan "Mystik" Scannell has finally finished the final copy of his theme song for CTU. You can find a full version copy of it here. Don't worry, the copy used in upcoming episodes of the series will be a shorter cut.

- In other news: Boobs Sell This is my most popular picture on Deviant-Art, at over 51 faves... (what the fuck, people, it's a picture of a guy with boobs... you people have issues)

Welcome to the Ultra Publications new Update system with RSS Feed 



You probably notice this frontpage looks diffrent then it did earlier. Well we've been working on the new update system that you are seeing now for a while in order to get updates quicker, and easier from all staff members. This system allows all staff to make changes to the frontpage through an onserver blog which transmits an RSS feed, you'll be hearing more about that from Clovis later.
