Far Cry. It’s a long while since I was excited about a Far Cry game. I’m not sure how long ago it was but it was 2004 when the first game was released. As I was back in the PC gaming fold (after my dalliance with early consoles – I had a new job and money to spend on new kit) I was excited. It was one of the first games I remember that used (the then fairly new) pixel shader technology and a new swanky graphics card. Back when Crytek developed the IP. Before the days of Ubis
“WordPress”. Single word that should be simple, should be easy.

I thought about Bluetooth, but then I couldn’t work out how to trigger it when I wanted the music on, rather, I thought I could trigger it when the Bluetooth was present, but that
Yes, first of all I know that this isn’t a post about what I have been playing, but it’s more of a post about what I have been playing with. (For the record I’ve been playing bloodborne, obviously) For an update on my bloodborne progress, check out this little thing that @philcooper made (with some ‘help’ from me – “can we make it do…?”). He calls it play/ing/ed and you can see what the two of us are up to here. Any way… I finally treated myself with the birthday money I got
