Post by Mort »

Heres my list main items :-)


Usual Smellies like everyone else, also got a Pal Commodore dtv (great fun and they seem to have fixed the sound from the ntsc version) and the Kraftwerk Minimum Maximum box set with the double cd and dvd from the concerts,Highly recommended with great tracks,check out the Retro computer Graphics in the background (could swear they were done on the speccy!) and lastly Bill Bailey`s Cosmic Jam on Dvd :D

I got a copy of 'The Complete Chronicle of the Emperors of Rome' by a certain Mr Roger Michael Kean, among other things. I'm really looking forward to settling down for a long read.

Interestingly, on the rear flap of the dust sheet, Oli drew pics of himself and Roger as Roman-style marble busts. It looks brilliant - a lovely touch. :D

I got one of them for my brother, although he didn't bring it to the UK with him when he went for Christmas, so I opened it myself and had a little play!

I can play all the games on my TV with an xbox anyway, so it was the easter eggs etc. that I was more interested in, although there seems to be less in the PAL version than the NTSC one :(

I also rediscovered that non micro-switch joysticks are a bit crap, you keep on going in an up-right direction when all you wanted to do was go right!! They should have used a Comp Pro Extra joystick!! :)

Didn't get any computer stuff this year, but I did get some cash to spend... Presents included a lovely sweatshirt, a glass chess set, Simpsons Pit card game, complete hardback editions of Lord of the Rings and Hitch-hiker's Guide, the Magic Numbers CD and a mobile phone...
