All About SadPSPAddict
So the Star Trek video game: not great reviews and let's face it movie tie in's are rarely any good ( although on a side note that isn't going to stop me picking up Fast and Furious Showdown on Friday ) and the market is saturated with FPS games anyway.
But a strange thing occured in my house. My eldest lad, who turned 16 last week, has never watched anything remotely Star Trek related and obviously just not been interested. So when the game turned up on rental ( is that soon to be a thing of the past? - sorry couldn't help it ) he had no expectations about it.
So what happened? He put the game in and actually quite enjoyed it - to the point that he borrowed the first movie from me and now wants to go and see the second one! He is also talking about watching so NG/DS9 etc. So the game converted him.
Maybe the game isn't so bad after all and it's pre-conception that killed it?
Anyway now I have shared that nugget I will go back to cooking dinner
So the wife is back in hospital again and I believe right now she is "under the knife". My 12 year old and I left at 5am this morning to take her in - she was due to be first on the list so had to be there by 7am. Got there to discover she had been bumped to 2nd.
We waited with her until about 10:15am but she then insisted we leave to get back home where our 15 year old was looking after the 9 and 7 year olds! Just as we got home ( about 12 ) I got a text saying they were about to take her down.
**UPDATE** Just spoke to one of the nurses and surgery is underway! Might not hear anything until 7pm ish though so a few more hours of this waiting
I'll be taking the kids to see her tomorrow afternoon
Think I might go and game for a while to try and take my mind off it.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
So after all the hassle regarding my wife's surgery ( which is currently rescheduled for the end of this month - fingers crossed ) we decided that everyone could do with cheering up!
So we went out and bought a new TV for the living room and set off a chain of electrical equipment movement round the house:
- The old TV from the living room went to the gaming room ( which really pleased our 12 year old as he is the primary user of that room and it was a bigger TV )
- The TV from the gaming room went up to our 15 year olds room - again bigger TV so he was happy.
- The TV from the 15 year old's room went into the room our 9 and 7 year old's share. Although not a size upgrade their old one had a couple of dead pixels plus no iPod dock so an improvement all the same
And the new one in the living room - well we figured it was time to get a 3D TV and also a 3D BluRay/DVD player so everyone was happy.
Once it was all set up everyone queued up for a turn at Black Ops 2 in 3D - lots of fun!
Anyway other than that I'm back on Forza Horizon for now with the new DLC on it's way. Looking forward to Grid 2, Ashes Cricket 2013, MotoGP 2013 and Fast and Furious: Showdown over the coming months. Too many games and not enough hours in the day
Right coffee break over, back to work ( currently setting up my new iPhone 5 - a work phone so this counts as work ) - take care everyone and great gaming!
