My History Of Gaming – Part 3

Posted on

Time for part 3 of my gaming history. In Part 2 we went from 8-bit to 64-bit to 32-bit, in that order! In this part I’m focusing mostly on 128-bit with a bit of PC thrown in for good measure! As we approached the turn of the century, nay millennia, I was happily bashing away […]

My History Of Gaming – Part 1

Posted on

I have a confession to make. I, am a gamer. It’s true. I love computer games. I’m hopelessly addicted to them. I have been for a very, very long time. “Oh great, another loser fanboy. I bet he plays Xbox games and doesn’t shower”, I hear you say. Well, steady on Jack Thompson, I’m not […]

1) PSN games. I love them because they are only £8. I love them because they are simple but addictive. I love them because they are digital and there is no packaging. 2) The PlayStaion Move. Well, it arrived. I have two controllers due to some terrible communication from Amazon mixed with my own impatience! […]

Wow, only the second of these. I am clearly far too busy! No time for toys, have I really sold my soul? Anyhoots, I saw a game a few months ago on the PSN store and thought it was too expensive and why the hell wasn’t there a trial? Well, this week I got my […]

Too much detail?

Posted on

Still getting to grips with my new camera but I figured I’d post about my lenses in a little more detail. This is the standard Nikon 18-55mm that you get as part of the kit: It takes some cracking shots. It’s really light, fairly quiet, good close up range. I’ve always been a fan of […]
