Well, not a day really. Five hours or so.
But earlier today, me and a friend (same one as from the “Falsettoing like Matthew Bellamy” musing) went to Norwich, the nearest legit city to here. We went to watch Iron Man 2, so I’ll discuss that first.
It was generally a fairly decent film. Certainly enjoyable, just a bit naff and with a slightly crap story behind it. But the effects used were brilliantly done, the fight scenes were well thought out and great to watch, and some of the humour, mostly by Downey Jr himself, was very funny.
The downside was the price. The ticket itself cost £7.10. It goes up by about 50p a year. Extortionate in itself, but then I got the slush puppy. That was a further £4.50. Money grabbing bastards.
The other main thing we did, after Iron Man 2, was wander down to the mall. I went into Game Station and got myself five old gems of games. Matt, being highly opinionated, basically slandered all the old games as rubbish because of their age. It pissed me off but at the same time an inner part of me smiled at his elitist ignorance. I will, on occasion, get a game that’s only been out a week or so, but I don’t see the point in doing it constantly when I can… well, today’s finds bring up a good example. I got a copy of The Getaway on PS2. It’ll provide me with a few hours’ entertainment and I’ll have fun with it. It cost 98p.
The other games I got were True Crime: Streets of LA, Wild Wild Racing (incidentally the first PS2 game I ever played), and WipEout Fusion, all for PS2, and Virtua Tennis 3 for PS3 (an odd choice, but I remember having fun with the demo, so what the hey).
Anyway, I reckon it’s time to enjoy this more-than-acceptable stack of games, while Matt is likely at home playing one drivelly shooter that cost him four times as much as my pile did in total (£10.96!).
One last note – happy birthday, Greyson!
