Whoosh! Time flies when you're having fun. Guess I'd better do another one of these editorial things.
So...I was in the city (Melbourne that is) the other night, watching the Lion King stage show, right up the front. It was fantastic really, I recommend it. The music was much richer and more substantial than the syrupy version from the movie and it was backed up by some excellent singing. The show is visually amazing too, great costumes, sets, the whole deal. So, yeah, I had a good time watching that and I would say almost anyone (I say almost, because I can't imagine any members of the Hell's Angels sitting in the audience, but you never know) would find something about the show to enjoy.
I've been playing some pretty sweet games of late. I've gotten heavily into Fable: The Lost Chapters on PC, since getting the preview code (full version in pre-release form) from our mates at Microsoft. I'll have the review soon, but I want to really explore as much of the game as I can before I write that. From Ubisoft I got the demo version of Far Cry Instincts for Xbox. I'm a big Far Cry fan and, from what the demo has shown me, the Xbox version looks as though it will be outstanding. I'll write a bit more about that soon as well, so keep an eye out. There are a couple of other games I've gotten stuck into, but I'll talk about them when I do the reviews.
Special K and myself will be heading to Sydney on September 8th for THQ's LOADED '05 show. THQ will be showing off some of their hot upcoming titles at the event, so that should be interesting and plenty of fun. Again though, you'll be able to read and see more about our experiences from the show when we post the report, right here at Buttonhole!
Last but not least on the gaming front, the Sony PSP hits Aussie retail shelves on Thursday and Buttonhole will give that some coverage too!
I hope all the wrestling fan's read Gimmick's SummerSlam PPV report. He was pretty happy with the show, as was I. I was also happy to read his thoughts, because they're always interesting. Plus, he makes me laugh.
You want more? Well, you'll get more. You'll get plenty more, I can assure you of that. To make sure you don't miss anything, just keep checking the site every day! Who knows what might pop up? Hell, I even just changed our "Quote of the week" for each section, after forgetting for God knows how long. That would have to be one of the longest "weeks" of all time!
I shall see you all again soon. Make sure you remember to wear your seatbelt and don't eat the blue mushrooms.
