    Missed the MLGQ this week, but thought I’d throw this out there.

    At the beginning of the year, I, as everybody else, thought 3D was just a gimmick.

    Roll on six months, and after completing Zelda, I’m very seriously tempted to by a 3D TV.

    That’s only due to the amount of time I’ve spent with my 3DS.

    I’ve also noticed that my ‘viewing angle’ has increased. I used to have to hold it very still, now I can move it about without losing the 3D image. It just takes a bit of time to get used to.

    On the subject of Tiny Tower addiction advice. The cure is simple..

    Like other people went a little too balls deep on this game, started taking the Ipad to work.

    Then realised changing the date and time of your Ipad speeds up the building of floors, coin earning etc Now still play it but on a casual basis there does not seem to be such a burning need to play it all the time as can catch up whenever I want.

    And yes I know its cheating, but its better than getting fired for playing games at work.

    Started playing Tiny Tower last week, after hearing about it so much, now I’m addicted to it, thank you very much you gits! Really like the sound of Groove Coaster, alas there’s no free version to try out and I only have 30p in my iTunes account left, may have to pick it up one year though. Great podcast as always guys, thanks for keeping me grinning like a loon when I’m sitting on the train listening to it.
