Nothing like a bowl of ice cream on a cold, wintery day, is there? Well… maybe I’m just a little bit weird.
We have a nice treat for you this week in this first segment, as we get to have a look at Bunimomike’s gaming set up. As ever, I can hand over to him to describe what’s going on in his own words:
My lovely Sony Bravia 46″ 1080p set which has been entertaining me, Hannypoppie and countless friends, whether it’s for films, PC, Xbox 360 or PS3 games. As always, 3D animations (from the likes of Pixar) show it off best even though it’s now coming up to six years old. Brand new, it was £1600 but I know I can replace it with something superior for under £700, which is lovely considering how technology moves on!
The Media PC is my retired works machine which has an ATI 6950 in there so Hanny can enjoy co-op with me on the likes of Torchlight II or Saints Row The Third (which we’re trying out this week when my 7950 comes back from repair).
My flat-mate decided to wrap things in tinsel for Christmas, so excuse the ‘Curry’s Christmas offer’ look to it all! The awesome TV stand is just something from Ikea. Utterly awesome unit which also takes enormous weight and is built like a brick privy!
All nice and tinselled, I see. Very festive indeed! You might just like to… uh… clean up the wall in the top left before you have friends over next.
You lot have been rather busy again, this week, but before I reel off a big list of trophies and games, I’d just like to send a few well wishes element666‘s way. It seems like he’s had a thoroughly horrible week, so here’s hoping things get better soon!
Alright, what have you all been playing?
Well, R1MJAW finished his first run through of Epic Mickey 2, as well as polishing off his “fastest” Far Cry 3 Platinum run… I’m not bitter, or anything, but I completed all of the tasks to get a Platinum trophy last Sunday, but it doesn’t count because I did it on PC! That’s Platform-ist!
OK, so maybe I am a little bitter…
Moving on, Youles netted the fastest FIFA 13 Platinum, his first for that venerable series of games, and he’s getting pretty darn close to the LBP Vita Platinum too. Not to mention that he now has some crazily fast fibre optic broadband! I’m jealous of that too.
B_Cambo clobbered Hitman: Absolution for the Platinum, whilst Bambo_19 took the fastest time for the similarly stealthy Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, and also rounded up the Platinum for PSASBR.
MadJunkBoy finished off the Ratchet & Clank 3 Platinum, his final act shooting a dinosaur-bird with the sniper rifle, whilst Ratchet & Clank Q-Force was finished off by Freezebug. Wolf-OF-chaos also revisited an older title, to take the fastest Platinum for Killzone HD. Killzone 2 might be the next game in his sights, but he’ll need a bit of luck to complete all those rather challenging multiplayer trophies, let alone making it through that final battle with Radec!
Crazy_Del’s crusade on older games’ trophies continues with The Cursed Crusade as a fastest, and Shift 2 Platinums. Oh, he also took all the trophies in Mutant Blobs Attack on the Vita.
We finish off with a little Public Service Announcement. Black Ops 2 is having another double XP event this weekend, so if you’re after a prestige, or just picking up a few levels, now’s your chance!
That’s almost your lot 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. Don’t hold back!
