    What's the point of having the rig if you can't look sharp when using it.

    Not technically a purchase, but I've finally had to get something I've been holding off on for a LONG time. I've finally got a credit card.

    Didn't want to, but sadly rising costs of everything and a wage that does increase with that has meant I've had little choice.

    Yay.

    Just a couple of computer text books to refresh knowledge on C++, C#, DirectX and .Net.
    I've been out of the programming circuit for a few years and thought it's time to try re-spark my interest and pick up a few unfinished projects. Quite tempted to buy into a more recent game engine and have a bit of fun with a nice long project as well...

    That's a familiar thing that happened to me a couple of years ago. It's a pain having to come to the decision to get one when you know it's mostly just another way of doing a loan...
    Thankfully I've only ever had to use mine once to pay the deposit for rent.

    It is pretty good and a tad harder than I was expecting given the presentation.

    Picked up Mario Kart 8 yesterday and **** me is it fun! Only been playing the 50CC cup at the moment with my wife but, I know this will be a game that I will want to play over and over until the disc dies.

    Need to register for my free game now. Not sure what to go for as I had Wind Waker but didn't really play it (nothing wrong with the game just not my cup of tea). I was thinking Pikmin 3 or possible Super Mario Bros U. Wonderful 101 is another choice but I will have to play the demo again to decide.

    Nice, sure you'll bend those pins back! Next thing you know, you'll need a GPU! ;)

    I've already bent them back as best I can, but it looks like one has snapped so I don't want to save up for an i5 just to have a faulty board :lol:

    And yeah, a new GPU will be in the works but I need some other bits first :(
