Whats Santa bringing you?
« on: 2017-Dec-16 »
I bought one of these off of ebay...



Pretty ancient as steering wheels go but it cheap'n'cheerful. Now all I need is an arcade racer (I tried project cars but it was "too" realistic and felt a bit of a chore to drive).


Anyone getting something nice/interesting this year?


Cheers,

Ian.

Try Grid and Grid 2, are really really fun, a lot of speed more arcade than simulator.

I got given a couple of Switch games - Mario Odyssee and Fire Emblem Warriors, two 3DS games, a jigsaw puzzle, a model triceratops (I have had a fascination for dinosaurs since I was about two), loads of edible bits; many from other countries - some of which I can't tell what they are! BluRays, a Lego-ish Yoshi (hits two highs here - it's a dinosaur and it's YOSHI!!!! <3 <3) a couple of books (8Bit Kids and The Walking Dead) and no socks!
I came. I saw. I played.

I upgraded my wheel to implement Google's self-driving car algorithm.
So much easier to drive now! Heck, I can sleep and wake up an hour later and have won ten games! Getting mad skillz!  Sorry, stupid joke!  :D
