    That may have been more relaxing than where I actually was, which is here. Going up was fine, if wet, coming down in the somewhat treacherous conditions was interesting to say the least,

    Some friends went to Galtres last year and said they wouldn't go back again. The ale ran out after a day and you couldn't take any in from outside. Music wasn't much cop either apparently.

    I shall put Gravy Wrestling on the agenda for tomorrow. See if it takes with the Mrs.

    It didn't take.

    For some reason largely unknown to myself, I ended up buying NSMB2 over the weekend, most likely because it was "cheap" at < 30 in one of the supermarkets. Still a lot for essentially the same game as the DS & Wii iterations. Same graphics, same music, same worlds (so far! Beyond World 4 and things could really get innovative) and the same archaic save points as the previous ones which is why I'm getting to the end so I can save after each level and not after each tower\castle. Because of that, a lot of star coins are missing so at least those will exert some challenge as will finding the many hidden routes and other secrets.

    Decent enough game if lacking any originality or surprises, I'd rate it as mid period Status Quo on the Pop scale.

    Nice review. If It's similar to the Wii version, I'll wait in vain hope that it goes down in price.

    Some sort of karting on Thursday? Which would be tomorrow of course.

    Similar? You could say that. Think of it as a full priced level expansion pack and you're not far out. Probably worth getting to be fair, there's loads of hidden bits and exploring to do if you can ignore the endless repetition in the look and feel.

    Karting? Thursday? Tonight? Intriguing proposition for sure, will endeavour to fit it in around the Paralympics.

    Sorry. Been working my behind off so haven't been on in a while. Will be on Thursday on one version of the game.

    Also, not that anyone needs an excuse to watch it, Victoria Pendleton will be on Strictly Come Dancing!

    Ignominy upon insult!. Bad enough a rogue of a King should be lost to time but to then be (perhaps) found under a Leicester car park is enough to put anyone's hunch out of joint. A Leicester council car park at that, not even a fancy NCP one. How far he done fell.

    Should be around for Thursday, maybe even for a cheeky MK7 session.

    Yeah. Going to spend the rest of the night debating whether to pre order the WiiU. Oh and watch some Breaking Bad S2.

    Have you seen the car crash of a WiiU thread?

    Blinking flip, was asleep by half 8 last night and missed the party. Had a warm up go on 7 earlier and found it tough going, 3 races and my hands are spent.

    Breaking Bad S5 just finished, I take it you're up to speed Thingy? It's a long wait to the downfall in part 2 :( Jono, if you're only up to S2, you're in for quite a ride.

    As for Wii U, how unlike the fine folks of EG to turn a new console launch into a festering, pox ridden sewer. Good work all round!

    Yeah, I'm up to speed on Breaking Bad, and what a mighty fine show it is.

    I almost picked up a Nexus7 at the weekend on a whim, but I think I'll hang on now and and get the WiiU instead. I've already got a couple of Android Tablets knocking about around the house and don't really need another one.

    But didn't you hear? The launch line up is abysmal! It's a 6 year old console with 10 year old technology at tomorrow's prices, today!

    A Nexus will be in the house come end of the year. Deciding between that and one of the new Kindle models but the latter is locked down more so will plump for the former. On the other hand, if I suddenly become brain damaged, then it's an iPhone 5 at 600.

    I've pre-ordered a kindle fire HD. I was impressed with the specs. Having unlocked my Android phone and not being able to decide on a rom, think I'll wait for a stable release before trying to unlock the tablet.

    No thanks to the iphone. Heard they wanted to add fingerprint unlocking on it but the company doing it for them said it wasn't ready so expect an iphone 5S soonish!

    Which WiiU package are you going to preorder? Don't know whether to go for the premium bundle or the ZombieU bundle.

    I don't know, but I'll be sure to update the thread every time I change my mind.

    Oi oi. I have spent a blissful week and a bit away from the internet (including 4 days away from any electricity) and unfortunately, I have returned.

    On a more positive note, I have now acquired Mario Kart 3DS :)

    Ah, Squadron Leader, delighted to see you about. I had supposed the Wii U thread had driven you to a long stay in an asylum, it turns out you've only been holed up in Wales.

    Did your MK7 come with a free helping of hand cramp too?

    Funnily enough, we did stay very close very close to Wales - stayed in Herefordshire, right near Offas Dyke.

    As for hand cramp, I don't really suffer from it probably because I have small, soft southern hands that haven't done a hard day's graft in my life.

    Well, neither have I. I'm just so ancient it takes most of the day for the arthritis to recede before it's time for cocoa and bed.

    Now we're all 7'd up, a handheld session this week?

    Definitely. I've only done all cups on 50cc and played a bit of online, so I might be a bit rusty.

    I'll add you chaps this week.

    Rusty? Much like my withered hands. Should be an even contest.
