Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction

I've finished my first play through, and I'm working on the second. I've bought all omega weapons, and I'm just working my way through all the upgrades.


Different garage, car now fixed. Lets hope it stays that way this time.

My car, a Nissan Primera, has experienced an engine management failure again. This is the 3rd time now in less than 3 years. Unfortunately the dealer that has done the previous repairs is now out of business, although taking it to a different place hopefully will mean that it gets fixed correctly this time.

Playstation 3 and DNLA

I've just discovered the DNLA feature of my PS3, installed TVersity on my Win2k box, and I can now stream all my videos over my network. This whole thing is bloody marvellous. It even works, via the internet, to my PSP. Astounding!

Edit: but not mp3. bummer.

Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction

I'm nearing the end of my first playthrough of this game, and as to be expected it's both gorgeous to look at and fantastic to play. I have one minor gripe - I don't like the inclusion of devices that are actually weapons. The weapons and the upgrades make the game even more fun, so to intentionally limit the upgrade potential of some 'weapons' smacks a little of laziness. That aside, it's still a top game, one of the must haves for the system

Hardwick Park and more

We went hiking again this weekend, about 6 miles, starting (and ending) at Hardwick Park, taking in Ault Hucknell, and Norwood. Fantastic day, good weather, and some time out and about with the family

Latest Gaming Purchase - Vectrex

I've just picked up a Vectrex console, with 4 games for under 40 quid. Bargain! There's a small burn to the controller, but nothing that stops it working, and the screen still displays beautifully. Time to add some more games to the collection...
