I've just got back after a weeks holiday in Wales. I stayed in the northern part of the country and stayed in a nice barn conversion at a farm in Snowdonia. It was the third year running that i've stayed there and was as beautiful as ever and the weather was suprsingly good (it'd rained quite alot the past few years i'd been there). This year i finally worked up the courage to walk up mount Snowdon, which is over three thousand feet tall! I was nackered when i got back down but it was a nice hike up there, but the weather was very unpredictable up their (one minute it was raining, then it was foggy, then it was windy)
There were quite a few nice coastal towns their as well such as Llandudno and Betws-y-Coed and overall i had a nice time.
I also got three new games while i was on holiday which were: X-Men Legends II: Rise Of Apocalypse (psp), Alone In The Dark: The New Nightmare (ps2) and Silent Hill (ps1).
I hated AITD and took it back a few days after i got it, it was an awful game with awful gameplay, cutscenses, voice acting and graphics and looked and played like a rather bad ps1 game. X-Men was fun though and very good, even better than the original (i couldn't believe i was playing a psp game!) with the added bonus of being able to play as Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants as well as the X-men. Silent Hill however was just as good as i thought it'd be and was really hard to get a hold of, the graphics were a little outdated (still looked better than AITD though!) and had the amazing gameplay and storyline i've come to expect from the series.
I also got a new emblem recently which means i finally have a rather large number of friends (which is mainly thanks to matsonpp and that thing he but on his blog which makes people track you when they click on your name):
I also became a charter member and officer recently of the new Silent Hill Resort union which is a fun new union dedicated to my favouite game series of all time, lead by my friend Lusitanogamer, it is well worth joining if you are a fan of Silent Hill or just Survial Horror games in general.
In unrelated news i also found out a new rock band i quite liked called Scar Symmetry:
They are Swedish and i first heard them when i watched thier new video (called the Illusionist) on a DVD i got free with Metal Hammer Magazine and have recently just ordered their album off of Amazon.co.uk, their style is the mix of a more gruff tone and a catchy melody and chorus.
Here is a link to the video on Youtube:
