Tier III German BB Nassau

My last game in this BB. It’s nice to finish off all the hard work on a good match. Especially if RNG smiles upon you…

Playing around with the Camera.

Elite Dangerous has released the Beta of patch 2.3 which has altered the ‘debug’ camera to what is now a Vanity Camera. The new camera system is a vast improvement on the very simple control of the previous iteration and I’m looking forwards to getting to grips with it.

Achievement.

Manic Miner on the Spectrum 48K, my first game I ever completed, well the first game that had a modicum of difficulty and took any skill. It was probably only difficult because when I first tried to finish it I was very young.

Aural Pleasure.

I think that I have slightly under sold my gaming experience with regards to my audio. I have normally had a separate audio card, from the SoundBlaster 16 AWE to Soundblater Fatal1y. When I had the Fatal1ty I paired it with a pair of ‘shielded’ speakers either side of my monitor. But times have changed motherboards now have inbuilt soundcards…
