The atmosphere of the Custard Factory is tremendous. It's like walking into Rivendell where no evil can pass and everything is bright, peaceful and wholesome. Don't get me wrong, it is an incredibly hard working environment but this is rewarded with great people (who will doth their cap to you) and the shop known as Retro World. This is no mere shop but a gateway into the 80's and 90's, with shelves of vintage wonder and childhood relics; thus rekindling my PlayStation One fixation. It began with Worms Armageddon, undoubtedly my favourite, closely followed by Crash Bandicoot 2 and Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2. I am currently on the hunt for South Park Rally.

- Whilst growing up, Star Wars and Disney played two completely separate roles in my life and I respected them both. I am still getting my head around the merging of the two.
- In the past 10 years or more we have been subjected to some incredibly poor sequels that were made decades after the original film(s), usually with dilapidated versions of the once nimble character (sorry Indiana, John McClane, I am pointing fingers). And the recent news of Carrie Fisher being on board for Episode VII gives me a worrying thought. I don't want my glorious vision of Princess Leia being tarnished when she returns as a 56 year old politician.
- With episodes I, II and III being somewhat of a let down, it's hard to imagine that this 'reboot' will capture the original brilliance of the Star Wars Saga.
- With ROTJ ending such an epic story I can imagine that many fans (including myself) have interpreted the ongoing journey of Luke Skywalker in their own fashion, over a course of 30 years. And if Episode VII brings back anything to do with Gungans, taxation of trade routes, the excessive use of blue screen or awkward conversations about politics and sand then it may corrupt this perfect Saga forever.
