PRE-INSTALL setup and test these games beforehand if you want to play!!
They’re big time-consuming downloads – you can do it up here beforehand if you wish, just let me know.

WARNING: Gaming Addicts …

Online gaming can lead to more than just killing time and virtual lives.

In Korea, a 27-year-old mother is alleged to have attacked her eldest child when the boy urinated on the floor while she settled down to sleep after four hours of playing online.

Earlier this year, a couple in their twenties had allowed their three-month-old daughter to starve to death while they attended to fictional online children.

A 22-year-old man killed his mother when she nagged at him to give up his online game playing and get a job, and a 21-year-old man killed his mother because he felt that her addiction was causing her to neglect her family.

In another case, a 32-year-old man played online without a break for five days before dying of exhaustion in his armchair and yesterday a man in his 30’s in China died after a 3 day non-stop online gaming binge.

Nearly 1 million South Korean adults in their twenties and thirties are now compulsive gamers, while the number of teenage internet addicts in China has risen to 33 million!

Mission this week?

Raw came up for some Black Ops fun. Tone won the first game while Raw “got his eye in”. Didn’t take long.

Next game: THIS FRIDAY 4/2??
I’ve had lots of late nights lately, so I’m beastly careless and an easier target than usual .. if that’s possible 😉

Mick said he might come up!

Mission Review/update

Parts and Tone had a play on the 7/1, with a few casual laps in V8SC3 and some shoot’em action in Black Ops after a lot of frigging around trying to join the same game. There is no dedicated LAN available, all games must be played thru Steam online. There’s also seems to be no way to search for a particular game or a friend!! You both must join the same game, then all the players appear in your recent players list after the game and you can then add them to your friends list. Then one of you can host a private game so the other can join. Pretty bloody clumbsy, especially if you were in two different locations, FAIL.

NEXT MISSION: Parts has prior commitments this Friday, so will be a no show.
Is this week the best week for Agents re work commitments, or next week?
I’m easy, lmk.

Happy New Year!

Now let’s not muck around, get your game ON THIS FRIDAY (7/1) @ the EDGE. Parts is in, if no one else is, it will be Black Ops at 20 paces 🙂

Hope you all scored a few PC goodies over Christmas and the post sales, I acquired the fore mentioned COD BO as a pressie, of which I finished the visually impressive single player missions last night.

Today I picked up 4 sets of Logitech ClearChat headphones (40% off) and a Swann twin wireless security camera kit (50% off) from DS. These items have been on my most wanted list for some time!

On Monday 3rd, we had a gathering of youngsters and family assembled and eager for some online distraction, seems they can’t handle the real world anymore! 10 PC’s were successfully networked together in the enclave for a SOFII extravaganza of epic proportions and surprisingly no problems. Hopefully the gremlins will leave us alone this year.

If you can’t make it, have a good one – ‘till next time.
If you can make it, LET US KNOW 🙂
