  1. I’m saving the original trilogy for last. Managed to break my progress in the prequel trilogy for daring to quit out of a story mission as it looked like the camera was knackered (really tight focus on my character with everything else blurred to incomprehension). Leaving it in the hope a patch will allow me to finish it. 

  2. After years of buying board games only for them to languish on the shelf due to lack of time and lack of willing players, my eight year old son has recently started asking to play Escape The Dark Castle every night. It’s like a dream come true. We cheat all the way through and have a great time. 

    Tried a round of Escape The Dark Sector tonight but I’m not familiar with the rules and the combination of trying to read the rules while he demanded to know when the shooting would start meant we made some mistakes. He still enjoyed pew pewing and I’ve now read up on how to play, ready for tomorrow’s session. 

    I hope he keeps this up - I think he’d like Castle Panic too and then it’s hardly any steps from there to Pandemic Legacy, isn’t it? No? What about Jaws Of The Lion?

    One step at a time, I guess. 

  3. And don’t forget there’s a pack of track decorations available in exchange for platinum points. 

    I bought the mario pack last week for £70 and have now got a Luigi drifting its way here from Amazon. We’re lucky to have short carpet as we can transfer between rooms to have longer tracks. 

  4. I want more Labo. I don’t know what is left to replicate with cardboard but I’m willing to buy it. Maybe more VR stuff with a strap on helmet and twin joy sticks and a new version of Star Fox. 

  5. I’ve had an email from DPD/Smyths too, about delivering on Friday. I ordered an S on All Access. DPD don’t have the box yet, so it may be premature.

    I skipped the last Xbox, and only have a Switch as a TV console, so this will be quite a treat. I think I’ll buy Portal first as it’s been ages since I played that. Then there’s Lego Indiana Jones for free next week. I’ll be making the most of those flops, and no mistake. 

    My decision to get an S was based on my TV being 32” and 1080 years old, and I can’t put the X or PS5 anywhere that would be safe from domestic terrors. The S will hide on a shelf behind some board games and with no need to put in a disc, it’s fine for it to be inaccessible.
