When it comes to gaming I tend to be fairly up to date with the new releases, buying the games I want on their release dates. However this isn’t the case for me with box sets. I don’t have Netflix or an account with any other video streaming company (having a capped internet usage prevents it from being a viable option) and a full price box set can be fairly pricey, so instead I tend to wait patiently for the next season of a series I want to watch arrive in CEX. I know, games cost a lot more than box sets, but new gen games tend to hold their value for a lot longer than a box set, and like my internet my patience is limited. I can always watch TV if I feel like watching a program where as there isn’t an equivalent option like this when it comes to gaming. So this week on my #WednesdayWishlist are box sets for the next seasons of series I have enjoyed and am waiting to arrive in my local CEX!
I’m sure we have all harped back to those days when we were younger; when the grass was greener; when the air was fresher; when you could buy two pints of beer for less than a fiver (damn I miss that); and when video games seemed so much more important; more impressive. It was as if the games had one cheeky hand on your bottom whilst dancing with your imagination; your very being… but these are lies, my friends. Do not let your rose-tinted glasses fool you…
#ThirstyThursdays is a place that I can share and recommend whatever drink I have been enjoying that week during my downtime with my faithful PS4. Anyone who has read my #WednesdayWishlist from the other week might have gathered that I am particularly fond of my whisky but for the majority of the weeknights I tend to stick to ale. They last longer and are a lot cheaper!
I apologise. I had planned to go into a lot more detail in this #WednesdayWishlist however my evening got side-tracked by a Vanilla Hardshake. ‘What is this Vanilla Hardshake?’ I hear you ask. It’s a sublime combination of some of my favourite ingredients. Take a shot of bourbon, add to a vanilla ice-cream milkshake and sweeten with maple syrup and you get a kids drinks suitable for adults only! Thank you BBQ’s & Brews for making the introduction.
Now back to the matter at hand; this week’s wishlist. September is getting closer, bringing with it an exciting event in many UK gamers’ calendar…EGX. Having bought my ticket as soon as they became available, I thought that this week’s #WednesdayWishlist should be about the top 3 games that I’m most excited about getting a chance to play whilst I’m there…
So far my #WednesdayWishlists have been solely about stuff that I would like to have – a simple exercise in base capitalism. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love wanting, buying and owning cool stuff however it’s not the only thing I wish for. This week I want to share a few things that annoy me and I wish weren’t part of modern gaming.
So far my posts have focused mostly on gaming and a small amount on box sets. I have not mentioned anything regarding drinking, a topic I had planned to talk about as it is something which I enjoy … a lot. When I finally polished off the remains of my Christmas whisky last week (a bottle of Jura Origin, a light and delicate 10 year old single malt scotch whisky and a firm favourite of mine) I decided that this week my #WednesdayWishlist would be about the whiskys I would love to replace that empty bottle of Jura.

Here’s what I enjoyed watching and playing last month and what I can’t wait to purchase in August!
