  2. Nothing. I just had to endure two furious Scottish men babbling in my ear for about an hour. One of which was @BarryL85
  3. If this turns out to be a success, I do wonder if third parties will get involved in varying flavours/variants once they get all up in it's guts. French vanilla, butter pecan, chocolate deluxe? Even caramel sundaes might be getting touched.
  4. Weavus could also join a PS party via the phone or tablet app, too. If his headset and PC supports Bluetooth he can get chat and game audio running.
  5. Choose the track pads, and you will join me. Choose the analogue sticks, and you join your mother... in death. You don't understand my words, but you must choose. So, come boy, choose life or death.
  6. Here's a short story for you in the meantime: When I was little, my father was famous. He was the greatest Samurai in the empire and he was the Shogun's decapitator. He cut off the heads of 131 lords. It was a bad time for the empire. The Shogun just stayed inside his castle and he never came out, people said his brain was infected by devils. My father would come home, he would forget about the killings. He wasn't scared of the Shogun, but the Shogun was scared of him, maybe that was the problem. Then, one night, the Shogun sent his ninja spies to our house. They were supposed to kill my father but they didn't. That was the night everything changed.
  7. Whoa. We must have absolutely crossed paths back then. I spent plenty of time at the indoor Epsom Market at the Games Room on the weekends. Mostly on the arcade games. Almost exclusively on Street Fighter. I'm sure that's the only place I got to play Midnight Resistance with the 8-way twiddly joystick, too. The indoor market (near the train station exit) also had SF1 with the touch 'sensitive' buttons for a bit. Other localish hangouts around that time would've been Surrey Street Market in Croydon and an arcade in Kingston, the name escapes me, but may have been called Games Room too. With fruit machines on the first floor and pool tables / arcade machines on the ground floor. The manager entered me and two others into a SSF2T tournament at the Trocadero in 94, we got shat on, obviously. Also Charrington Bowl in Tolworth. I then moved on to the Trocadero / Las Vegas / Casino in the West End. I got a job at CEX Rathbone Place where I would spend after-work time at said arcades before catching a late train home. I remember picking up a call from Sally at Epsom Games Room asking about buy/trade prices on certain games - I recognised her voice instantly and said hello and explained who I was - she remembered me from the indoor market days. Other places I visited regularly would've been ACE consoles on Carnaby Street - extortionate prices, I did buckle and buy a This Is Cool Saturn from them. Shekhana at Tottenham Court Road - still in touch with the guy who ran the consession there - we both went into the games dev. I visited the Wood Green branch a few times too and I'm still in touch with someone from there too, who's still in games dev. But yeah. Fuck Sutton into the Sun.
