Basingstoke

I'm not interested in this game at all, I am posting it up entirely for the sake of Sly Boots, who lives there:

Basingstoke is a tense roguelike that mixes stealth and arcade action. Explore the smouldering ruins of apocalyptic Basingstoke, UK, a world of extreme peril where reanimated undead and ferocious alien monsters roam!




Between tedium and fright
Such is the song of the nether world
The hissing of rats
And the jarring chants of angels

:lol:

I understand it's actually quite good, but like you I'm not sure I fancy playing it. Living it is enough -_-

I once went on a week-long training course at IBM in Basingstoke. I have to admit, there wasn't really much to go and see during the lunch breaks so we kinda just stayed in the canteen.

It's one of those close-to-London hub towns isn't it? Bit like High Wycombe, where I used to live.

In High Wycombe, there's a chair museum. All about chairs.

I remember when Festival Place first opened and it was the bees knees. The Ster Century cinema was fantastic and such a step up from the other shitty cinemas in the area.

Now it's, well... Basingstoke.

:P

Roundabouts. Lots of roundabouts.
