Update,News, Youtube and Minecraft

Its been a while since I last posted. It has been a busy few weeks the kids have gone back to school and I have had some drama with the car which fortunately is now working ok and has the MOT for the year. I still have manged for the most part to get videos up on my youtube channel and am keeping to my schedule of uploading something every Tuesday and Thursday. Despite an internet outage to two which meant that I was a little late on one or two of them.

I have also manged to do a few streams on twitch.tv  I stream when i can and when internet allows my latest uploads to YouTube are from a live steam that i did while playing lord of the rings online [lotro]  Part 1 Part 2 . There are more video’s on my channel and I would very much appreciate it if you would like and subscribe.

A few large pieces of news have happened since I last posted, Microsoft buying Minecraft is one. Personally on this I think that even and 2.5billion buying Mojang is a good deal for them however I do worry what it will mean for Minecraft especially on the Playstation format. I hope that Microsoft treat the community right and realise that having it on every platform known to man is a good thing.

As I type in the UK, Scotland are voting either yes or no to decide whether they want to stay part of the UK or if they want to go it alone. So far most of the polls have been very very close. I personally hope that Scotland stay as I do think that we are stronger together than we are apart. I am however getting fed up about all the coverage that there has been about it. As I live in England and am English I don’t get to have a say on the matter but its been all that has been talked about for the last few months. We should know by tomorrow morning either way.

I think that is all for now.

 

I would just like to thank my followers and subscribers and hope that you continue to enjoy my content.

Wow How Time Has Flown

I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since I last posted something on here.

A lot has happened in the time period much more than i could ever have imagined.

Life is great, I moved to Manchester to live with my partner we then both moved to another part of Manchester into our own house. We decorated said house from top to bottom in a total time of about 3 weeks.

I have learnt so much not just about how to hang wallpaper [it’s rather fun but frustrating] but also about life away from parents, stresses with bills and money.

I also managed to pass my driving test second time around and having a car and being able to get around has been such a godsend, I regret not learning sooner although that brings its own financial stress as well as mechanical which is something im going to mention in another post soon.

Learning how to deal with my partners 3 kids has also been an eye opener they are great kids and love every minute that i spend with them even when they drive me crazy but i would change nothing I love them all and am looking very much forward to spending our first Christmas together as a family.

My skills for cooking which I also enjoy are coming along quickly i have always been good at following instructions and methods its always my timing that has let me down this is improving a lot and although mistakes are on occasion still made I have not yet had a complete disaster in the culinary department.

So yes a very busy year its been a big adventure and there have been up’s and down’s and im sure several other cliché it also explains why i haven’t been posting on this blog as much as i had intended. Just haven’t had the time or inclination to do anything with it.

I do now though as life has started to get into some kind of “normal” routine have some ideas of what I want to do so keep an eye out. I’m planning to do at least one more post today which is completely unrelated to most of what is already on this blog but is more of a reminder for myself than anything else but I do hope that people will find it useful.

Anyway enough of the waffle.

I do seem unable to keep to any sort of schedule for posting things on this blog for which i do apologise.

This part actually covers two months September and October hopefully Novembers will be done on time and within a week of the main playstation plus update.

anyway with out any further to do  this is how I’m shaping up so far

So this is how it stacks so far at the current time [19/10/10]

All price are from the UK store and are in Pounds and pence (£)

Playstation plus -39.99
Wipeout HD +13.99
Destruction Derby +3.99

So as you can see I’m now well into profit actually the amount I’m now up is rather surprising even to me.

Now lets see how much more I can make.

Is PlayStation Plus A Good Deal? Part Two

This is part two of my ongoing mission to track my Playstation plus transactions and to see whether or not Playstation plus is a good deal.

I have bought the year subscription for £39.99 English pounds and just like This Article from the guys at IGN.com im tracking my savings.

I’m following the same rules that have been set out by IGN which are as follows

For the next year, IGN PlayStation Executive Editor Greg Miller and IGN Guides Guru Colin Moriarty will track their PlayStation Plus PlayStation Network purchases every Wednesday. If they buy a full price game, it won’t be logged here. On the chalkboard below, we’ll track what the “free” content would have cost them as well as the discounts they’re receiving. Now, these figures will only include new stuff that the boys have downloaded. If they already own a piece of content, it won’t be included just because it has been discounted or marked as free. This is strictly what they’ve downloaded under the PlayStation Plus umbrella to date.

I will trace how much i actually save assuming that i actually save anything. I will try to do this as quickly as i can after the uk store has been updated and intend to do it quicker than i did this time around this has been delayed due to a dead ps3 you can read about my thoughts on my new slim Here.

So this is how it stacks so far at the current time [31/07/10]

All price are from the UK store and in Pounds and pence (£)

Playstation plus -39.99
Wipeout HD +13.99
Destruction Derby +3.99
Field runners +3.99
Age of zombie +3.99
Steel & titanium pack +4.79
Sackboy on the run theme +1.59
Alien Zombie Death +2.49
Blast Off +2.49
Origami Swan Avatar +0.20
Origami Butterfly Avatar +0.20
Grand Total -2.27

It was a bit of a quiet update for me i already owned a lot of the stuff that was available still got a couple of good games to play for 5 mins also had an hour full game trial of mushroom wars. That games a lot of fun might well purchase it at some point in the future. Also a couple of demos were made available early to us plus subscribers so although store content for me was poor there has been one or two nice surprises.

I expect that the new Playstation plus content will be on tomorrows [Wednesday  1st September] And with me having the weekend off of work the next update should be up by the end of the week.
