My Sis in Stockport posted on FB that they got burgled while they were in the IOM (not smiling about that) The BIL is very upset about it, he had reached a very critical point in "assassins creed" and now he will have to start again from the beginning!

Sorry about the burglary - it's a horrible feeling so hope your sis is okay. But the comment on your BIL had me laughing

The game that's lasted the longest recently was an old PS2 one that he wanted - took him a few weeks to complete and only a fraction of the cost of his newer ones
