News: Belated Christmas Present Posted by Ryan :: 6:46 AM
For those who haven't played the original Grand Theft Auto & it's sequel, Rockstar Games has posted them, along with Wild Metal, free for all to download. These are of the PC persuasion, so stumbling through keyboard commands can be frustrating. Sadly for those who enjoyed the add-on GTA London 1969 pack, it is not available to download.
A man who has spent at least two hours a day practising on a vintage video game for the past 25 years has secured what he says is the highest ever score.
Gary Whelan, of Dukinfield, Greater Manchester, has been playing the space invaders game, Galaxian, since 1980. He said he had set a world record of 399,290 points, beating the previous record held by a Californian. Mr Whelan said he would not stop playing until he had reached at least a million points. He said: "You've got to put some effort into it and some time into it. "My marriage is probably the same. "The worst it's been is if my wife shouts me for my tea. I say 'I'll be down in a minute', but obviously, if I'm on a good run, I'll keep on going till my tea's cold." His understanding wife of 24 years, Trish, said she had not considered divorcing him. "It's not like I didn't know what I was getting into," she said. "He has always been really interested in video games. "At least I know where he is and what he's up to. It's our silver wedding next years so I'll wait till then and then we'll see."
