Wooo, me so jealous!! :mrgreen: :lol:

It was not a great design obviously, but it worked and I learned to how to program in Basic on it and played lots of games of course... :D

A real piece of art. Was surprised to see an AMD chip in there, I'm a fan after all! This is the first computer I've used while at elementary school though.

Speaking of AMD, I made a wage with my 6yo daughter last friday after finishing a delicious little bottle of Porto; Stop fighting with your brother and tell me how much pocket change I dropped on the key table and I'll help you build your first gaming computer. I was sooo sure she wouldn't get the pocket change count right... I was wrong :shock:

I end up having to order a couple of parts missing to complete the build (and probably convinced my wife to file for divorce :mrgreen: ), amongst them, a shiny AMD FX-6300.

Damn, I missed the discount :fist: I have several long photoshoots this week and very little time to spend with you guys :cry:

Stick of truth definitely is on my get list. Was highly approved by some of my co-workers too.

Yep, it is a great game... graphics are kinda "simplistic" of course, that is by design, to mimic the actual "South Park" world in general... some of the comments in the game are just hilarious, I shan't ruin them for you here with spoilers... :mrgreen: :scout:
