^ It’s that new DLC for it that’s apparently super super hard, enough to put me off getting it. Marauders are the worst thing in the game by far, but there are videos online how to beat them really quickly. Really liked the size of the levels, they’re freaking huge

Didnt buy, was given a Silver PS2 with Burnout 3 and some COD game.
Also a Chomebook

They really are sh**t arent they?
Chrome books are ok.... I wrote my first book on one. Although it decided it would only charge if tilted 90 degrees and then refused even that. The chrome book obviously.

Chrome Books are fine for web and basic office apps, and that's 90% of what most people do with computers these days.

If you really that need that last 10% when you're out and about though, they're not so good.

Preordered a physical CE of the Cotton reboot from Strictly Limited Games, first time using them so hopefully they’re decent

Nice little system for the money, looks good. I wish they'd do stuff like this with bigger screens, I'd love a 10" screen handheld gaming system. Switch is great, but the screen is still a bit small sometimes.

Yeah price is decent. On amazon they’re about 80-90 quid so I was susprised including shipping it was only £6. I’ll let you know what it’s like once it get it
