Ahh a mess and a muddle of a blog entry today. It represents my state of mind perfectly I think!

First up, an advert. I’m soon to be writing for B4HD, a retro gaming site that will focus on retrospectives and gaming articles on pre HD games (pre 2005 in other words). Dan Lipscombe is leading the way but he’s trusting me to be his deputy which is a very nice proposition ๐Ÿ™‚
Anyway, have a look at the splash page for the soon to be unleashed site. It’s over at B4HD. Also follow us on Twitter.

I picked up EA Sports Active today thanks to a Gamestation voucher. Hoping it’ll help rebuild my foot. I’ve only had a very brief go but it looks promising. I can’t do the running on the spot exercises but should be able to do most of the others without any difficulty. If it helps my foot just a little bit it’ll be well worth the asking price. Pete Davison sums it up perfectly over at his OneADay blog.

(nearly) Finally, Dan Lipscombe challenged people to list their ‘pile of shame’, games that they own but have yet to complete. So without further ado, my list. It’s actually not quite as long as I expected. Mind you, it doesn’t include DS, iPhone, PS1 or PS2 games. Also I’ve probably forgotten some! An asterisk indicates that I have started the game at least.
