Videogame Nation.

I finally have a fully functioning laptop, yay!

Yesterday the boy and I went to an exhibition called Videogame Nation about the rise of videogaming from its origins to the multi-billion pound industry it is today. It was full of old games to try out (my favourite being Temptest 2000 on the Atari Jaguar) and was very interesting - both for the boy, who couldn't live without his Xbox 360, and for myself, who, in all honestly, only really knows what the boy tells me about gaming.
Anyone in Manchester should get themselves down to the Urbis and go play!

[I wore white cut-out shoulders tee from Topshop, black skinny jeans also from Topshop, unknown silver necklace as bracelet, snakeprint tote and my Jeffrey Campbell Kent boots]

  5. Like you, I only know what I know about gaming from my boyfriend. And if I went to that exhibition, I'd have gotten a migraine and puked. I hate 3d games.

    Love your top. :D
