"So it's a game of pong you want..."




Unsurprisingly my blogging has become less frequent as a result of finishing exams! Anyways here are 2 things that caught my magpie-esque eyes (not cause they're shiny just in the fact i randomly find things...)

Firstly empire have listed what they think are the 100 greatest ever computer games. Being a modern child i grew up with games such as Sonic and so this is a interestingly little list (though it also reveals my dark geeky underbelly but i'm not going to worry about that...)
Quite fun to have a quick look through and potentially gasp at the different rankings..

Secondly one of my favourite artists (loose term) Banksy has in secret redone the Bristol Museum. Now i understand that some people dislke/hate his work but i think the man is a genius. I may try to visit Bristol sometime soon to view this exhibit...

check out some pictures

I'll probably come up with something of greater interest soon, reading a brilliant book on unanswered prayer at the moment but i'll finish it before giving people the "lowdown"

  1. oh boy, here goes the geek in me. i have played quite a few of those 100 greatest games and can vouch for quite a lot of them being up there (yay for sensible world of soccer beating fifa and pes!!), but im surprised by a lack of tony hawks pro skater 2 and pokemon (blue or red)!
