I'm back baby! As great as it was to get away for a while, coming home is always a pleasure. Especially coming home to a massive pile of new games!
I had a really great trip, we drove from Melbourne to the Gold Coast and did some camping at a few places along the way. When we got there we stayed in this awesome apartment with a beautiful view of the beach and an indoor spa. Most luxurious I must say. The weather was very nice too, while it did rain a bit on the last couple of days we were there it was still warm enough to comfortabley get around in shorts. Sitting on the balcony drinking beer and watching the waves was not something I could ever get too sick of.
Didn't do the theme park thing this time, as I'm lucky enough to have been to them all several times before. We went to a couple of movies and a fantastic wildlife sanctuary though and the beach of course. We also went out for a few meals, one of which was at the cabaret restaruant Dracula's. This was the second time I'd been there, where they are all dressed up like vampires and monsters and so on and they have a live show with singing and comedy routines while you eat. It was pretty much the same show as last time but I still loved it, a really fun night out and something a bit different. The food's good and there are some really hot girls there too; they look great in their kinky goth outfits. There's a Dracula's in Melbourne also, so I must go there one night and see if it as good as the Queensland one.
Kris, Ando, Fazz and everyone else has done an excellent job of keeping everything running smoothly at Buttonhole while I was gone. I was stoked to see how well things were still going when I returned home. Not that I thought things would go badly, I suppose they just once again exceeded my expectations. Thanks so much for the great work guys, the site looks better than ever. I was also glad to read Gimmick's Backlash report, because I didn't see the Pay Per View. Sounds like it was a pretty good one too.
As I said at the start of this thing, I had a heap of games waiting for me when I got back. I didn't get the chance to play many of the games I'd planned to while I was away either, due to various circumstances that I won't bore you with here. So I am really behind in my gaming! I'll make up for it though and will be doing some monster sessions and get them reviewed as quickly as I can. Of course I'll be sharing the wealth with the other Buttonhole team members too and they'll no doubt give you their thoughts on a few of the titles we were sent. Things are really picking up steam with the game publishers supporting Buttonhole and I believe from here on we will just go from strength to strength.
I'll leave it there because I have a whole lot of playing to do! Keep safe kids.
