So yeah, it’s nearly the end of August and being completely honest, I haven’t had a lot to write about up until now. For starters, I’ve finally managed to pick up DJ Hero, Guitar Hero 3, Lego Rock Band and Beatles Rock Band, all of which I’ve been wanting for ages. The Rock Band games were brand new though the DJ Hero was second hand (and much cheaper than anywhere else!). where possible, I am trying to buy second hand, but the issue is that sometimes brand new is cheaper than second hand, so I have to save my money. Rock Band 3 is on the horizon, and there will be no doubts as to me getting it, especially with the fact it now includes a keyboard controller, which quite honestly has me drooling like a hungry dog in a butchers. It’ll be great to be able to play another game that lets me learn on a keyboard, given I have plans to learn it. Synthesia is a good thing, but I do think I might need something a little, well… easier to start with, plus I think I need some additional support, though that said having a 25 key keyboard is a good thing on the basis that I can start off with a handful of keys, then work my way up. Besides that, I also have plans to start up a band with a friend of mine, though it’s not likely to take off properly for some time; more details on this later on.
I did also manage to pick up a few PC games as well, for quite cheap. I got myself Evolva, Mass Effect, Star Trek: Borg and Space Empires V and with the exception of the ST game, they were all new! I ended up spending a lot on games the past week or so nut they were so cheap I couldn’t help myself! Staying on the subject of PCs, my desktop has developed a slight issue where one of my SATA power connectors has broken so I can only have one hard drive going at a time, which quite frankly sucks. Thje laptop isn’t fareing well either, given that the screen has gone all funny on it. I do hope it’s just a loose connection because otherwise I’m going to have to shell out for a new laptop, given the gfx card replacement is a good 200-odd Pounds! Thankfully, my desktop problem is only a couple of quid to fix, though I might get a spare one, in case it falls down again. In case you’re wondering how it fell, it was simply a case of me getting tangled up with my mouse lead and pulling on the desktop and knocking it down. Thankfully, it was just that which was damaged… the hard drives seem to be fine which I consider a small miracle. Not that I could afford to replace them at all. Not the best week for my computers, is it?
