Wii Music

// November 15th, 2008 // No Comments » // Geeky Stuff, General

Woo! Another game I’ve been wanting to get hold of! Wii Music lets you conduct and produce music by waving the Wiimote and nunchuk in a variety of different ways. I haven’t played it for long and already my arms hurt! ūüėõ

The only problem I can see is that there aren’t many songs to choose from, and you can’t download new ones. However you can share videos with others so you can experience first hand other people’s take on the songs in the game.

Trauma Centre: New Blood

// November 9th, 2008 // No Comments » // Geeky Stuff

I picked up a new game when I was in Leeds visiting some of the family. The sequel to Trauma Centre: Second Opinion has finally come out and I’ve been dying to get my hands on it! Here’re the opening credits:

It kinda reminds me of the intro used for House M.D., don’t ya think?

Sadly, I couldn’t play it when I was at my sister’s because she couldn’t find her nunchuk controller, so I had to wait until I got home. It’s pretty much the same as before, but with improved graphics and gameplay, brand new story, widescreen mode, and actual speech for the characters (A lot of people find this annoying, but not me). I’m gonna be playing this bad boy for ages yet!

New licence!!

After a couple of months of re-learning…

I’VE PASSED MY DRIVING TEST!!!!

I’m well chuffed with this feat! The last time I had been behind a car was a few years ago when I was leaning under the instruction of a capable instructor in Middlesbrough who was a friend of the family. Back then, when I did my test for the very first time, I failed it horribly (I got a number of minors and one BIG major!). After that, I didn’t continue my lessons. This wasn’t because I was disgruntled or put off, I just couldn’t be arsed. Public transportation in Middlesbrough was pretty good. Buses were regular, mostly on time, and taxis were plentiful and didn’t cost too much to get ya home after a night on the piss. (more…)
