Sorry I've not updated lately.. Here's an update...

Ok, first off, I apologise for not updating in a while, but it's been a hectic few weeks. Here's what's been happening...

On July 19th my father suffered a stroke, so alot of time was spent down the hospital, he's out now thankfully, but has lost all use of the left side of his body. It's been a pretty horrible experience for all of us, but thank's to Sara for taking us back and forth up the hospital things went kinda smoothly. It's horrible to see your parents ill, and he's only 57, so that is even worse. It's not like he's old or anything! How cruel is this life we live?

On lighter notes, I've been playing a few games, some are new, some not so new. First off I've been going through Killzone (PS2) on the PS3, it's a great first-person-shooter, and it seems like I've been playing it for ages, the game just seems so huge! When playing it, you forget it's a PS2 title, as it does look and play really really well.

Secondly, Soul Calibur IV has been getting alot of attention as that's a new title. I'm just playing around with it a minute, but will sit down and try and unlock all the unlocakable when I get the time. Also just re-started playing Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. This game has just had trophies added to it as an update, so I've been trying to collect as many as those as I can, and enjoying one of the best games ever!

Another couple of game I must mention are Pixel Junk Eden demo for the PS3 and Sega Rally for the PSP. Eden is a great little... erm... I can't describe it, as it's so unique. But it's a great, relaxing and enjoyable game. The PSP version of Sega Rally simply kicks ass. I got it really cheap, and it's given me hours of fun on the move. Rally racing at it's best!

For my father (and myself!) I picked up a couple of bargain DVDs. I got Rio Bravo, the John Wayne, Dean Martin & Ricky Nelson classic western, and I bought the amazing Kelly's Heores. I'm looking forward to watching these again myself, you just can't beat classics!

I just ordered Terminator 2: Judgement Day from Play.com on Blu-Ray disc. I'm sure that's going to be a great hi-def experience! Really looking forward to that one!

And so, it's time for me to pack up my stuff and head off to work. Work is going good a moment, has it's ups and downs, but really enjoying it.

Until next time.

Adios Amigos!
