I’ve entered, I hope I win so I can donate it to the local orphanage, poor kiddies have no food or games for chrimbo (I also accept blank cheques and hard cash, all for the poor orphans you understand!!! :P)

Oh.. so it’s all about the kiddies is it!? What about my drink and drug habbits? Just because it’s christmas the bloody starving, homeless kids are first in line. Well, bollox to ’em. I’m sick of the whinging little brats.. “boohoo.. i’ve got no mammy.”
Why the hell should I have to do without my hash just to spend my dole money Assassin’s Creed II?
I’m sure the kids’ll understand. As long as they get an Orange or an Apple.. or something. they won’t mind. Is it not enough I had to sit through hours and hours of two-bit childrens presenters on children in need…. etc…

So, did I win, I’ve got 300 starving little orphans asking me ‘Uncle Azrial, can we play the game now’ and I’ve got to look into their sad little eye’s and say ‘piss off you smelly little tramps, I’ve got first go anyway!’ It really breaks my heart, to see their sad little faces like that, but it also warms my heart when they get to witness my mad gaming skills.

w00t! I won!
HUGE Thanks to FantonFanFlinga for donating such a great prize to a good cause.
I can’t promise that I’ll be inviting any orphans or homeless round to have a go at it, but rest assured, I will be enjoying every last gliph and feather!

At lease tnow I can divert the funds I had set aside for this title to another well deserved cause…shoes for my children; the newspaper soles on their shoes are wearing thin now, so they’ll be well chuffed.

Thanks once again FantomFanFlinga and MidlifeGamer.
