Febuary a New DOOOR(n)

February has been another busy month, To start we had a new front door fitted. Its double glazed and makes such a difference to the temperature in the hall its amazing. We have also had some builders around that have done some plastering of what we hope to be old damp spots.

I have also been decorating around the in-laws house and fighting a nasty cold. This week of course the kids have been off of school for half term and have the rest of the week to try to keep them entertained.

I still have managed to get some videos out on my YouTube channel and a stream on Twitch part of which I already have put up on YouTube and you will find linked below.

Sadly it would seem that I have lost a couple of my subscribers 😦 But i’m hoping that I’ll soon have much more content up for anyone that actually does enjoy my videos.

I at least enjoy making them 😀

Anyway linked below are some of the more recent videos that i have uploaded this month

Another Part from my prison architect Playthrough will go up tonight.

Lets Play Christmas Shopper Simulator

Its been a while since I made a post here. What can I say life has once again a bit of a nightmare. Fortunately everyone is OK but we really could do with some calmer months ahead.

Anyway today I present you with too new videos from a game released by the video game retailer GAME.

Init you play a Christmas shopper that receives a list of tasks from a payphone and you have to fight through the crowds and Christmas decorations to get what you need in the time limit.

Or you kick balls and presents into people’s faces.

There is actually a lot to do and you have a list of achievement’s that you can complete or you can just trash the place and be a general menace.

Here are to video’s I threw together.

 

 

Lets Play World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft. Is a game that never really hooked me. I tried once died quickly and bounced right off.

I never got hooked like how the rest of the internet and alot of my internet friends did.
Its one of the most successful MMO’s ever and I have never understood why.

Perhaps I never really gave it a fair chance or perhaps it was just the race I chose that I didn’t connect with and so, with WOW being in the press again and with many, many years under its belt and with several big expansions I thought that I would give it a chance once again by downloading and playing the trial version.

So my latest video is the first hour or so of game-play which does unfortunately ends up with the game crashing on me.

Expect more and tune in every tuesday and thursday for more videos

Enjoy like and subscribe.

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.
