    Amusing Gaming Tales

    I was probably 8 or 9 when my mum arranged a weekend sleepover with my on/off mate from down the road. He was a freckled ginger, a look I associated with being sick. But he liked games more than the other kids, so I could tolerate him up to a point, after which I just wanted to play with my normal mates again. 2 nights were always going to be troublesome... Friday and Saturday went incident free, playing and beating some Turtles game my mum had bought us for the weekend. Sunday morning we got up at 6 to watch cartoons and then booted the NES again. Contra, brilliant as it was, had this idiotic friendship-ending cheat (hold A+B I think) to steal your partner's remaining lives in multiplayer. He did and I went ballistic. I sneaked into my sleeping parents' room and got our new air rifle. Told ginger he had to leave immediately, else I would shoot him. He left, but as he was walking down the road, his back to me, I lined the rifle's sights and shot him in the leg. At that point I realised I had fucked up massively and ran back into the house, foolishly hoping nothing would come of it. Obviously it didn't and he had to go to the doctor to get the pellet removed. Lots of apologies later, I had not only lost access to the air rifle, but also had to hand over the NES and its games to ginger. It's okay, mum upgraded me to a Mega-Drive days later, which of course restored our friendship, as no kid could stay mad at someone with a newer console.

    Pro Cycling - Tour de France 2018

    Jens Voigt attempting a new hour record at the moment. Live streaming on Youtube which is pretty exciting.

    Let's just enjoy this moment, however brief it may be.

    South Park: The stick of truth

    Is anyone else finding the menu interface to be terribly shit? It's slow, ugly (WinForms-like) and not very well organised. I shouldn't have to scroll through 5 different 'blades' to get to the damn map! The only good thing about it is the Facebook screen - some genuine lols on there (oh Randy!). The rest of it's been decent up to now. About 4 hours in and while lacking in actual gameplay, the homages to the show are great. You just can't help but smile at some of the crap you find around town (especially in Cartman's mom's room...) Just wish I had started on Hard, as Normal is serving up zero challenge and the battles are starting to bore.

    Are we trying to wipe out City's goal difference in one game? This is incredible!

    The Weeknd

    So Tears in the Rain might be my favourite new track this year. I haven't yet decided whether Kiss Land is as good as House of Balloons or Thursday, but it's better than Echoes of Silence, and that's still a brilliant record. This guy... fucking immense talent.
  7. I kept this thread open throughout yesterday, clicking that little play button whenever I realised my headphones were silent. Countless listens later and I'm still not sick of it. Much for bringing this to my attention, noob.
  8. Scott, you fucking liar! You promised they would deliver.
  9. Haha, that was entertaining for all the wrong reasons.
  10. Nailed it. I'm defecting day one.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    That stupid collage made me boot Nuts & Bolts just now and reminded me how brilliant it is and also how many jiggies I still have to collect. And my backlog's already a mile long. Bastard.

    Super Mario Galaxy on the way for Wii

    I'm nearly done collecting all the green stars in Galaxy 2 and thought I'd do the same for the original. But how did the Luigi part of that game work? There weren't hidden green stars, were there? You just play as Luigi and get the same 120 stars that Mario got?
  13. Maybe if you let them play on non-Nintendo hardware they might spot the difference. Nintendo haven't made anything new in decades.
  14. Really, where did this happen? I've certainly seen nothing of that sort on here or elsewhere.
