Long overdue update

Point Increase Since 28th October: 760

A long overdue update from me, and as you can see quite a change in looks too!

I spent the first part of last week trying out Joomla and seeing if that would match my needs. It was brilliant as a CMS for showing off my reviews, but I just wasn’t happy with the blog element of it as well as a few other bits and pieces. Essentially, although fun to try out, it was just wrong for this site. Given me some much needed experience in it however.
Anyway, I then spent the second part of last week sorting out this new change as well as the change located at Halycopter Reviews. That part of the site still needs some serious work, I’m not happy with the skin and a few other things just don’t sit right with me.
However, I’m pretty happy with this part of the site, hence the update! Oh and as a side comment: Don’t mind the RSS feed for the Reviews site that shows not very recent reviews, it’s down to how I added them to the new site. Once I’ve added some new reviews, it’ll all balance out 🙂

Besides this, it’s been all go for me. I’ve been keeping myself to myself a bit as it’s not been a great week for me emotionally (probably why I stuck at Joomla for so long, nice distraction!) but I have had some good news. I have a job! I’m now working at Blockbuster at weekends, only evening work but hopefully it’ll be good for me as well as my bank balance. Also it means 10 free rentals a week and 20% discount off games and DVDs so not bad at all! I start Thursday.

Gaming wise, it’s been sequel fortnight for me! Meaning Fable 2, Gears of War 2, Mercenaries 2, oh and Force Unleashed.

I still haven’t 1ked Fable 2, been taking my time with it. It won’t take long now though, mostly finished my second playthrough, just need to get the Perfectionist achievement sorted and that’s pretty much it besides a couple of simple achievements I’ve not done yet. Despite everyone else trading it in, I can’t. Been looking forward to it for too long, so I just don’t think I’ll be able to bring myself to sell it.

Gears of War 2:
I went to the Midnight launch at my local Gamestation Thursday night. Sure, I paid over the odds than if I went to a supermarket but it was fun and different. Somehow never been to a midnight launch, so that needed rectifying anyway! I also picked up a Splatterhead model as I couldn’t resist at the time (I should never be allowed to spend money at midnight, all my inhibitions go!).


Don’t mind Sonic in the way :p I’d love to own more gaming figurines, damn lack of money.

Oh and for my final thought: Quantum of Solace = good but not as good as Casino Royale. However I’ll forgive Daniel Craig anything 😉

    It’s all differenty!

    Nice update – wish I could find (or edit) a theme so it looks halfway decent.

    Love the splatterhead too :>

    I really like the pattern behind this comment post and the top, but I also believe much should be changed from default as it stops it looking just like all the other sites that use this theme (though in fairness, not seen any)

    Definitely nice, but I did really like the last one.
