While we were in town today, I popped into the local CEX shop and spotted, while walking past the Nintendo DS stand, Overlord: Minions. As I loved the original Overlord, and am part-way through Overlord 2, I thought I’d give this handheld “sequel” a go. It was only 5 English Quid second-hand, which isn’t too […]

Killing AVG8

I’m a big fan of AVG Free, the cost-less anti-virus software from Grisoft. I’m a keen advocate of it, and have installed it on several computers of friends and relatives (tho’ trying to ensure they keep it up-to-date is a trickier matter).

So I’ve decided to look for a game to replace it once it’s complete (I’ve never been a keen replayer of games, tho’ […]
