Super Monday Night Combat Invitational (hereafter referred to as Super MNC) is the open Beta for Uberents follow-up to the XBox Live (followed by a PC port) Monday Night Combat. The original was a game I really enjoyed, and it went down pretty well at Decembers Fishcon.
Christmas decorations are going up, town is too busy, and for the 4th year running Yell have announced redundancies in the I.T department.
Well, it's my first proper outing with the new laptop. When I decided to change over from the more traditional gaming tower to a laptop the plan was for better portability, so as a suitable test I brought it along to Throne of Skulls (hereafter referred to as ToS...it's Games Workshops big event they run at their headquarters).
As is tradition (or will quickly become one), in the off-season I tend to start painting en masse, as the weather and lack of daylight keeps me from training.
I spent far too long this weekend not really understanding Civ 5. While it downloaded I attempted to read the manual (all 230+ pages of it), and got a basic idea of combat, play mechanics etc etc. Did the basic tutorial, and won it in about 10 minutes.

It's been about a month since I got back from Lands End...a fairly banal train journey from Penzance, and Gill met me at Reading station (still dragging that damn bag!)
