Manga Me

(Gaming) Cyberpunk v3

OK, this is a post which is only relevant to the Roleplayers out there.

For those of you who have picked up, and read, Cyberpunk 3rd Edition - what do you think of the rules system they have in place there?

Ignore the background. Ignore the layout or art they used. I'm really only interested to know what you think of the rules system.

Thanks for any feedback.

R2 - The Home Entertainment System...

Thanks to twicedead who found this:


There’s only one thing better than a home entertainment system and that’s a home entertainment system that can follow you around the home in the shape of R2-D2.

This is a fully-working robot that stands just under two-feet tall and as CES drags on this is one of the most fun looking gadgets I’ve seen, if for no other reason than R2’s lens is a fully working, LCOS home cinema projector. It can project images up to 80in wide in 800x600 pixel resolution. It has an in-built DVD/CD/MP3 player, FM radio, speakers, outputs for hooking up to surround sound systems, a USB slot, memory card reader and – if that’s not enough – a pop-out iPod dock.

And the best bit is the remote control, a big unwieldy thing in the shape of most boys’ favourite starship, the Millennium Falcon. The control pad slides out from underneath and I’m pretty sure that if you got one of these you’d never need friends again.

It’s built by Nikko Home Electronics and the show reps said that this going to be available in the UK in the coming months. The cost? A very reasonable £1,500. Jump now for more pics. -Martin Lynch


There's other photo's on the linked site including one of the 'Millennium Falcon' remote control :p

All Alone... (plus Apocalypto - North Finchley Vue 2pm Saturday)

...in da shoppe.

Sean is off ill today and Keyvan had to leave at 4.30 for a doctors appointment so I'm all by my lonesome.

It's odd being here all by myself with the doors open to customers. We usually have a bsutling crowd of 3-5 staff members. I think I might pop on the radio or a CD to give me some background noise between customers.

Rosie is coming down from Leicester tonight. I know we're off to see Dom and Elaine's new baby tomorrow morning and then hitting the cinema to see Apocalypto at 2pm on Saturday afternoon (if anyone else fancies joining us for the film meet us outside about 1.50 and either text me or leave a comment here!). Beyond that I'm not sure what we're up to this weekend (I know I'm working on Sunday though...).
