My cold toes almost make me wish I was on Rook Island from Far Cry 3. Then again, I’m not a big fan of heat, and all those tigers and pirates constantly attacking me would hardly make it the most relaxing of places!
I think I’ll just stick to the games instead…
Something a little bit different this week, as we turn to Kris to see what he’s rocking in the games department. In particular, that new Nintendo machine. The Wii U. He has one!
Here are some lovely pictures of my Wii U. The first two are from Thursday night when I unboxed it, before I’d plugged it all in. Both the GamePad and the actual Wii U look pretty sexy to my eyes.
The next two show the gaming set up I have in my room. With the arrival of the Wii U the 360 had to be moved to the corner so I could fit my stereo and speakers as well, but it actually looks much better there. Then of course we’ve got the monkey hat (everyone has a monkey hat right?) and the Wii U with GamePad all plugged in.
The tinsel is actually hiding my aerial. It’s not a christmas thing, it’s been wrapped in the same two strands of tinsel for 6 years now, a memento from my first year of university. It doesn’t work very well as an aerial though.
Finally there’s the small TV I use in my room, a lovely loan from our very own Kev. There’s a much bigger TV in the front room, courtesy of one of my flatmates, but this one does well for my room.
Anyone else out there have this new bit of kit? Are you enjoying it? Struggling to reorganise all your stuff around the new hardware?
Also, is it just me, or does Kris’ TV just look like a slightly bigger Wii U Gamepad? Wii U XL?
For the third time in the last few weeks we have a new person getting their name onto the leaderboards, and doing so with a huge splash. Germ1984 puts himself in the running with a whopping 108 platinum trophies to his name! He claims he’s largely given up his trophy hunting ways, but he’s also raiding the Fastest Platinums board going deep into the back catalogue.
He claims two of the LEGO games (which no doubt has R1MJAW crying little blocky tears), a trio of F1 Platinums, and many of the Prince of Persias!
We also have Still_ill_Son making a first appearance with PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale’s fastest, R1MJAW nabs the latest LEGO Lord of The Rings fastest (making amends), and Samiro05 sneaks the Zone of Enders HD fastest Platinum.
It’s not only about the fastest though, and we have Taylor Made looking back a few years to finish off God of War 1 HD’s Platinum. Apparently those challenges were a little bit tricky. Parryman is a new entry on the leaderboards on page 2, but has added to his card this week too, with the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD Platinum.
Crazy_Del is all about extending his lead with the Dishonored Platinum, mimicking B_Cambo who also picked it up this week. There’s a nice bit of a helping hand from Del for B_Cambo too, helping him with some of the online trophies for Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
Youles has been plugging away at Assassin’s Creed 3 online, and has finally hit level 20 to get there. Now it’s just the single player to finish, but he stayed online with the gang of TSA players that headed out at last Monday’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. What’s that? Unbeaten? Keep it going guys.
Finally, McProley asked me to point you the way of his LittleBigPlanet Vita level. It’s all about the beats here, with a snazzy music track the centrepiece. You could queue it up via LBP.me, even. I love that feature.
That’s almost all you get this week. You can head over to page two for the trophy leaderboards, but to finish off this page, we have the usual submission form for photos and accomplishments. Please don’t be shy about it!
