It has arrived – Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PlayStation 2 and it is absolutely brilliant! I’ve been playing it for the best part of today and have only covered 1/6 th of the map (I haven’t even started on the missions!), the whole thing seems at least 5x bigger than GTA3!

The animation has been greatly improved. You can now swim, exercise, eat, get fatter or stronger and build up relationships with characters. Of course killing criminals, cops and innocent civilians is also a vital part of the game and this time it is even more violent.

I was in no way offended by the level of violence in the game but I can see how some people would be and even though the game carries an 18 certificate it’s inevitable many will ask for it to be banned.

Anyway brilliant game!

A lot has been happening with Super Leeds United since my last update. They have FINALLY signed the Preston and Northern Ireland striker David Healy. Maybe now Leeds can actually score some goals! The club have also been linked with another takeover, this time from the grandson of J. Sainsbury (the guy who owns those supermarkets).

I can see it now… a statue of Jamie Oliver outside Elland Road, the players running out to ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ by Toploader and The Lurpak Stand being renamed “The Sainsbury’s Be Good To Yourself Butter Stand”.

Leeds take on league leaders Wigan tomorrow. Even though Wigan are flying high, Leeds always seem to do better against stronger teams and the arrival of Healy should evoke confidence in the camp. Still Wigan are a very strong side. I’m going for a 1-1 draw.

Anyway, I’ve teared myself away from GTA: San Andreas and even turned down an offer of going to my local pub to go to the cinema to watch… Alien vs. Predator – I’m mad I know!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
