Another gusty day,

IMG_20160210_083135

I’m glad to get on the train and get reading in comfort.

IMG_20160210_082543

And I’m reading away at a pace of knotts now, well for me.

At Walsall I take a break while I sit down on train two. The Metro is out. Erm look at that. Bad news if you want to reitre. But very good news if your paying into a pension.

Up to a point I was lost with the story, the Vixen chapters but now this has merged and the story is developing but into what?

IMG_20160209_230447

At home there is some time to fire up the Saturn and have a games night.

IMG_20160209_230500

And another dreamcast game has come.

IMG_20160209_230507

A controller too, with a memory pack.

IMG_20160210_191443

I connect the Saturn up

IMG_20160210_191447

And work out the battery is flat.

IMG_20160210_191505

ohh 1994, it is an old machine from the PS1 erra.

IMG_20160210_191604

And there she is, working.

IMG_20160210_191607

I should be excited.

IMG_20160210_193450

It has come with a game so we will be able to compare it with the PS1

IMG_20160210_191721

It has come with Wipeout! And yeah it plays really nicely, and the grpahics are incredibly smooth. They are just not as good though. Not as I remember it ont he PS1.

Next is firestorm.

IMG_20160210_193308

A great Intro

IMG_20160210_193330

And initiaily some niffty looking graphics!

IMG_20160210_193337

But in game, they are actually poor.

IMG_20160210_193413

So here we have a game that should be good.

IMG_20160210_193557

through the selection menu and

IMG_20160210_193614

very colourful

IMG_20160210_193511

And smooth so very very very smooth.

IMG_20160210_194855

I turn to the Dreamcast, plug in the memory card and

IMG_20160210_194818

put the second controller in.

IMG_20160210_194740

and game one is Re-volt.

IMG_20160210_194859

ohhhh we now have a display on the controller.

IMG_20160210_194902

Great title screen.

IMG_20160210_195024

ohhh radio controlled cars.

IMG_20160210_195028

This will be fun.

IMG_20160210_195031

And it is, and so dam slick.

IMG_20160210_195819

Next another car game,

IMG_20160210_200134

we wait eagerly

IMG_20160210_200155

Yes lets press the start button.

IMG_20160210_200244

Well it not very exciting but is dam good.

IMG_20160210_201412

Right then this should be a treat.

IMG_20160210_201600

nice

IMG_20160210_202800

Now it all looks nice, but the controls….she so hard to control. What has gone on here??? agghghhhhhh

 IMG_20160210_204158

And with that I put a pizza in the oven on the new Ikea baking tray.

IMG_20160209_235709

I settleon the Sofa with the PS4 and Fallout 4. I start the broadcast in looking for Kellog.

Now some of the broadcast goes blank. But if your going to watch it, keep with it.

Screenshot_20160211-084041

Afterall Kellog says “Lady I’m just a puppet like you”

Screenshot_20160211-084109

As you can imagine that doesn’t go down well with me.

And so my task here is done.
