It’s POCKY! (Not Mikado or whatever)

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

Not sure about the whole message there, but anyhow … inspired by this advert, I bought a packet. 59p per packet, and they are quite tiny compared to the real pocky. Also the milk chocolate is horrible compared to the plain chocolate pocky they sell in Japan.

Manic manic miner

Friday, August 29th, 2008

My cousin and I actually did Manic Miner in a whole weekend using an infinite lives poke and lots of reloading. But this is just ridiculous …

I love the way he does the Warehouse. IIRC we spent literally hours trying to work out that level.
