I played a bit more FIFA last night, 7 points off winning division one, drew 2-2 with PSG as Lazio just because of it just not wanting me to win against the better side. But yeah. This weekend I'm free, so I'm going to be getting a pizza and settling down with XCOM or Spec Ops tonight. I've got a bet on PSG so hopefully that comes in. Saturday continue gaming and football, then she comes back so will watch Casino, Snatch or XMen: First Class. Then Sunday, will keep up to date with Mainz v Stuttgart and Schalke v Hamburg if they're on TV :)

Yeah, no holiday for the Brookers this year. We were gonna be going to Gamescom but then stupid wife got pregnant! Haha! Hoping to get a little time on XCom this weekend. Played for a while the other day and really liked it. Hoping to get it finished before SR4 and SC:Blacklist arrive

Wish I was going to gamescom. How long even is XCOM come to think of it? I'm just meeting new aliens every mission nowadays. Wish it had an autosave though.

Had a day trip to the seaside yesterday, got burnt, ate loads of nice food, drunk loads of cider, and picked up a ton of streetpass hits. Got a week away in Cornwall planned for next month, when all the kids have gone back to school. No gaming plans for the weekend, will do a bit of Animal crossing probably though, forge ahead with Earthbound, and maybe have another crack at the Pikmin missions. Probably have another BBQ at the weekend, I fancy some ribs and they are best done over charcoal.

We were working up over the years, gamefest, then eurogamer, then this year was gonna be Gamescom. Shame, maybe next year. Not a clue how long XCom is, I'm reckoning 20-30 hours. And I have 2 weeks until sr4 and blacklist.

I'm no stranger to Cornwall Bindania, been holidaying there for many years, Bude is our favourite place ever.
JoeToots's avatar

Bude is very nice I live in Plymouth its very nice having Cornwall just over the bridge from us. Where are you going this year or you going back to Bude?
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Yeah, Bude again, we've been all over the place and it's our favourite, great beach, nice and quiet, and there's plenty of good spots to visit within easy reach.

Padstow is nice, been there a couple of times for the Hobby Horse dance, we used to do all the little local festivals when we were younger, travel around camping for weeks all over the place. These days we just want to relax somewhere nice though.

I'm planning on playing Tales of Vesperia all weekend. I put up my last bookcase last night & I have got to say that it they look great with my Game/Manga/Anime/Limited Editions/Collectable all on display

Newquay is good if you want somewhere lively but it is full of surfers and students. Truro is nice for shopping. Places like Looe are good for a day visit.

Funny thing is that by the time I finished putting it together the two guys doing work on a house a few doors down laid almost a whole driveway

Bude is great, and Padstow. Newquay is a bit young - used to go there when I was a teenager with mates. Visited Cornwall or Devon pretty much every year when I lived in the SW but moved to the SE a couple of years ago and haven't got round to going back, which is a shame. My plans for the weekend deffo involve some gaming; haven't had any time for it in last 6 weeks due to life commitments getting in the way and moving house so having the PS3 boxed up. Finally finished the last of us yesterday - really liked the ending although was kinda predictable, but I felt it was done very well. So now that's done its back to Ni no Kuni which I was playing before TLOU came out... don't think I'll be buying any new games for a while as my backlog is so big and I have so little time these days to play any of them :(
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Yeah, wasn't keen on Newquay, too many surfers and students, we like things a bit more off the beaten path, Done Truro and Looe before, both nice enough, but wouldn't rush back there. Had some mad times in our youth, sleeping on beaches and in parks just to save some money and get round more places, was great at the time, but we're old fogeys now.

This weekend will probably consist of a wander around a nature reserve, meeting my lady friend, and if any spare time, a continuation of my Crusader Kings 2 campaign. I still have Ni No Kuni to finish but seeing as the Last of Us came out whilst I was halfway through, and it was a game I *needed* to play right away, I've not found the motivation to get back into it.

Polzeath is a lovely beach as well. Yeah Looe is ok usually go there once or twice a year for a day out with the parents.

Speaking of YLOD, Im Going Space, does anyone else still have a working day one release PS3? I'm the only one of my friends who hasn't had to change their PS3 at any point. Wish I could say the same for my Xbox 360 thought :/

I have an original 60gb PS3 which still works only got a new console recently because I wanted a bigger hard drive for PS Plus.

Finally, after 3 months, numerous supposedly guaranteed cannot fail repair disks, downgrading to XP and waiting for an adaptor to be shipped from Hong Kong, I have my computer working online again. That was a bloody pain in the arse, but it works faster with XP, and has probably gotten rid of a load of unwanted crap, and I managed to back up everything important before the reformat.

My original PS3 isn't day one release but I got it in 2008 and has never needed replacing - I gave it to a mate in 2011 when I bought a slim and both are going strong, and have both had their original hard drive replaced to expand space. I actually only know one person who has had to change their PS3; not sure if it makes a difference but he leaves his on the floor which I believe is not supposed to be great for it.

not anyone i know of, the current one i have was the first model without back compatibility, but my day one 360 is still going strong, and i have put a LOT of hours through it.

I can't afford to leave the house this weekend as I am going away on Thursday. Going to Coventry for 4 nights (convention. Nothing spectacular but it gets me away from Liverpool for the weekend which is good). So I will probably just be playing Mass Effect 3 multiplayer all weekend. Maybe also some Saints Row 3 to get ready seeing how SR4 is out soon :) I would be messing about on the Inauguration Station but since I created Herr Flick from Allo Allo on it a few days ago, I decided I can't ever make anything better :P

I sold my 60gb one to a mate to pay for my slim one. He then spilled water over it about a month after owning it.
