Wednesday Chat, July 3


There was a power cut in our area this morning, lasting roughly 30 mins. Being clever I used the Gas cooker to make my morning cup of tea, but obviously access to the internet via my PC and any access to my consoles was a complete no go.

Sure it was only a 30 minute power cut but it got me thinking, what if you had no power? What would you do as an alternative to gaming? Go outside? Play Football? I've tried this before and it wasn't too bad.

So what would you do if the power was off?

Let's Chat!

Surely what handhelds were made for? Forgot to bring it up the other day but the fact the Kinect can scan your 12 digit codes is so money.

I do read a lot though, so I'm not above grabbing a book and a candle from the drawer and old-schooling it. Or I drag the scrabble board out. If I can help it, I don' go outside. Probably explains why I'm so pale!

Outside? is that like DLC or something?
Bindiana's avatar

Yeah its DLC Johno but you have to buy the collectors edition and season pass to get it.

I thought it would be a gradual phase out say over at least 6 months or so not 1 month.

Really pissed off about the Lovefilm thing, on a payment holiday with them at the moment and all the games have been removed from my rental queue, so I sent them a message about it and their only reply was that new customers couldn't rent games, no mention of why mine had been removed or whether they'd be put pack when the payment holiday is over, so I had a rant at them for being so unhelpful and asked the question again.

I love the movie section of shopto. every now and then, a gem of a deal appears. Just bought Friends with Benefits for £1.85. I'd gladly pay 1000 times that amount for any film with Mila Kunis in (Except Max Payne) Pretty funny film too, as shitty rom coms go.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
thanks for the heads up troublemaker just ordered it to..
JoeToots's avatar

troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
no worries. Bought A Few Good Men for £2.86 as well. excellent film. Sorkin at his best. Dear shopto. please sell more blu-rays. and please let me write about them for you :)

troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
Seriously, I could go on about films all day! Rise was great. Aside from that one cliché moment where they just HAD to invoke the original POTA, it was excellent. Cloud Atlas was OK. But very long and drawn out. it tried to do too much. Not the best
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
also ordered walking dead for ps3
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago

David, please, for the love of Christ, FUCK OFF! Seriously. Are you really insulting a guy for not being English? Please do one, you backwards, retarded, brainless piece of racist shit. There is no place for an unwashed cunt like you in a decent community like this. Do yourself and us a favour, crawl back to your basement and don't come out until the rest of your pathetic EDL dick sucking brethren come calling for you. Shit for brains.
