Before I begin, I’ll just state that I’m not going to post any pictures here. If over the past couple of years and increasingly everywhere you turn these days you haven’t seen a video clip or picture of the game then you are probably wasting your time reading this as you clearly must have no interest in games or be some kind of hermit. Or both. On the other hand if you’ve been in some sort of coma, Siberian gulag, on some hush-hush space / sub-aqua odyssey the past few years and this is the first site you came to, then congratulations and welcome back chap.
Went to watch this today with Mrs Chunder and not-so-young-any-more son number 2. Our local cinema got a revamp less than a year ago and so now it has an X-Plus screen which is floor to ceiling wall to wall, and in the case of Suicide Squad also 3D. All screens now have those huge seats that electronically recline and the foot rests go up. All very "hoi-paloi".
I don’t know about others that come here or read these posts, but historically I think I’ve pretty much shown that I tend to see a lot of fun from life. Perhaps it’s because I’ve had pretty grim times here and there, or perhaps it’s just the way I am. Many would say that it works to my detriment and if I was more serious then I’d be taken more seriously. Frankly I’m too old for that now. As an example of my kind of humour, here’s a short edited email trail from this morning. It revolves around an enquiry we have for which we have signed a non-disclosure agreement.
Have you seen this?
For the rest of you, I saw a while ago Stigg said something like "wahoo!" when he saw that The Chronicles of Shannara was to be made for the screen. Having never heard of these books yet trusting his judgement implicitly I downloaded the Audible of the book to my tablet and started listening.
Seriously bored here in the UK. Le Sigh!
So I got no games for Christmas, which wasn't a huge surprise as I had said to everyone that there wasn't anything I was after until Tom Clancy's The Division comes out in a few months. I did get some books, aftershave, chocolate, a new TomTom (wow arent they thin now?), a mini photo printer and a car dash camera, plus a couple of DVD's and CD's.
Chunder stands up; "I can't remember the last time I played a computer game...sob"
Therapy class; "Aaaaahhhh" accompanied with sounds of clapping.
Y’know sometimes how life gets you down? It can either be nothing specific you can pin your finger on, or alternatively it can be defined moments – either one or multiples accumulating, that cause the feeling. The past couple of days are two of those days.
So last night I went out for an evening meal with some colleagues from work, but it was over pretty quickly and I got home in time to play some more GTA V on the PC.
I really must find out what the key is for screenshots.
Last Thursday was my eldest sons birthday and so I asked him if he wanted anything special for me to cook on Saturday. He said he wanted me to "make that pie you make". As I have been known to make a number of different ones it took a few minutes to determine which particular pie he was asking for - I call it my Picnic Pie because in my (apparently solo) view its way nicer cold. I then had to decide what I was going to do with it and opted for Tuscan roast potatoes in white wine, honey glazed carrots and fried shredded cabbage with bacon, then probably some gravy.
