Money can’t buy you happiness!

It is said that money cannot buy you happiness, look it’s even there in the title of this blog, but I think I have evidence to prove that sentiment wrong. You see recently I had £75 set aside to test this theory, all scientific like. But first some background information which is required to fill out space in this blog.

In 1989 being a young 17 year old, a year into my first job, pretty much dedicated to gaming on my Atari ST home computer, ahh I played Elite Frontier on that computer for so long I am surprised my TV screen didn’t have the game burnt into the screen, *Wiping away a tear of nostalgia* Where was I? Oh yeah I remember, at this time I was also getting into Games Workshop and a table top game called Space Hulk had just been released. I bought a set and at that point I was hooked.

Since that time I have bought the expansions, the computer games, the second edition and even the Full Control APs’s Space Hulk game I bought through Steam, the only thing I didn’t buy was when GW did a limited release of the third edition box set back in 2009, you see at that point the world had seen fit to make me unemployed and while I was looking for a job, I didn’t have the money to buy the version, with all it’s new shiny models, new board sections and game tokens, I was at that time what the internet would call “A sad Panda!” However as of the 20th September 2014 GW re-released Space Hulk and this time I am in full time employment and have the cash!

The Experiment in to happiness!

So clutching my £75 in hand and with a sad look on my face, remembering the bad old days of 2009 I arrived at my local GW shop. . .sorry Hobby Center.

“One copy of Space Hulk please.”
“That’ll be £75 please.”
“Here you go.”
“Here you go one copy of Space Hulk in a bag, Enjoy”
“I will!”
“Bye.”
“Bye.”

Even before I left the shop. . .dammit, Hobby center I could feel the smile creeping upon my face, by the time I had got home (about a 25 minute bus journey, I was practically skipping. Was I happy? you better believe I was happy, finally it was mine Space Hulk 3rd edition (maybe 4th edition?) was mine.

In conclusion. 

In answer to the age old question can money make you happy? Yes, yes it bloody can, scientifically proven right here, right now!

In other news. . .

I finally got around to playing Dishonoured on the PS3, I bought it ages ago but was either to busy play Battlefield 3 or something, I don’t really remember, but it’s actually quite a good game, graphics are nice and clean, environments well laid and thought out, I would heartily recommend picking up a copy if you have not already! #latetotheparty

I am also thinking of getting back into World of Warcraft, but not sure if I want to do so before Warlords of Dreanor? Serious consideration to be had there!
