Things did not go as planned…
Every cloud has a silver lining.
In 2011 our dear friend Mentski, was unceremoniously punted down the road by some silly cow in her fathers Fiat Punto. Apparently it was blue.
I was unaware this event as it happened and after a few days of having no returned calls from my partner in crime I became concerned. However, I received a phone call from Mentski telling me he was in hospital in a rather bad way. “Proper fucked” was the term in fact.
Being the dear friend that I am I visited him with a copy of the Sonic special edition of Retro Gamer. He was very happy. Well, at least as happy as someone whose pelvis, leg and elbow was being held together with pins.
Spin forward a little while…
Mentski had a rather comfortable insurance pay out. The going price for being almost being wheel chair bound. Hooray!
Well, E3 is next week and as it transpires it’s the same week of my Birthday (and Mentski’s two weeks ago). As a wonderful gift to yours truly, Mentski has paid for us to go Los Angeles for the entire three days of the biggest video game event on the planet- E3.
While we’re there we will do our very best to bring the best, the most honest, no bullshit news, views and latest updates on the wonderful world of video games while maintaining our integrity and, of course, a healthy dose of cynicism.
See you, in a weeks time.
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. That’s how the saying goes.
