Gaming on the go!

Alto's Odyssey

Carry On Wayward Son…

So it began – the long coach journey to London, to lose my Capital virginity hoping that someone would not cause an accident by driving like a Riddick (on phone and being two inches away from the vehicle in front) on any of the motorways that took me and the family to Canary Wharf or something big broke down without making it to the hard shoulder and causing a tail back something akin to, well it happened, gridlock – wagon conked out!

Gone fishing… Not really gone sightseeing!

Out of Office.

So without putting any holiday songs into your head, especially from a certain Queen of Pop from four decades ago, I’ll just say me and the soon to be wife are heading South to see some sights.

If they let us in is a different matter… So my friends it will be rather quite around here for a week or so.

Pheonix TGI 2.0.

And like a phoenix, the legendary Arabian bird thy has risen from the ashes…

Hello everyone, I pause and wait for the $@&* off it can’t be comments being delivered telepathically, having waited a nanosecond I say “yes it’s me Matthew – reincarnating TGI.”

Ten years later and counting, and with some epic deliberation, I have decided to bring back The Games Ingredients. I’m under no illusion that to reach the heights of old, it would take something of a mega miracle. But fear not, I’m not aiming that high, I’ve climbed Everest once and when I looked down all’s I could see where other slap-dash, flame bait gaming blog’s trying to accomplish what we did in a few short years.
