Well, I've been a little busy of late... trying to update my Youtube videos mainly... trying to get all my games up with footage... and takes a while.. eventually I'll start doing voice over reviews or features... for now just refining capture and editing skills... of which I lack...
You can find out what is floating about on my channel HighwayUK's channel - YouTube
It's been a while since I last blogged an update about whats going on... so what's happened since the last?
Well swapped onto BT infinity fibre about 4 months ago, so now getting a solid 77mb down and 17mb up speed and úber pings for game servers
And in the recent we treated myself to a 680GTX Jetstream 4gb, although currently got a teething problem that looks like it needs a RMA done
Flogged my 580 GTX to a good friend, god the timing sucks....lol so
Well after avoiding the beta builds to avoid spoilers etc for the last 6 months, I finally got my hands on the game a few days after launch (I like to wait 2-3 days for them to fix server issues.... especially after that Diablo 3 fiasco ) and after 4 days of play I'm finding this to live up to most of the hype, Guild Wars 2 is definately the WoW killer, that said it's not massively different to most games on the scene, it's more in the way it does it's stuff, it's a lot more fluid and friendly
Had one of those days again where you get pushed into upgrading something that you want, but didn't really need.... not complaining, but just had to replace my daughter's aging and naff PSU this week, so rather than pop in an average non-brand which is always a false economy, I decided to gift her my spanky Seasonic one and upgrade mine ready for the next gen of GPUs from ATi or Nvidia over the winter, I've plumped for the rather nicely priced vs specs, Corsair 750TX V2 which will be installing

Treated myself to a new Steering wheel for father's day (couldn't expect my 4 year old daughter to cough up for it...lol), opted for a Logitech Driving Force Gran Turismo force feedback model, to improve my DIRT3 skills and very happy with it. Admittedly I was hoping to get a G25, but not really fussed about clutch since use automatic gears anyway...lol
