This is where you can read any of my irregular wafflings about computer gaming. The whole point of this blog is to help motivate me to properly finish games, whether they be recent ones or older ones I played when I was younger that I never managed to beat.

Pew pew pew
I've just started to play the almighty Dune 2, which was, like many people I assume, the very first RTS I ever played. Back in the early 90s when playing this on the Amiga I got to the last level, but just could not manage to beat it. I'm gonna be woopin' this thing's ass this time though let me tell you.
I actually found a new version of this game online called Dune: Legacy, which has been created by a few fans of the old game and brings it a little more up to date. Only a little mind. But it does seem to be a much better version and even has LAN multiplayer which I might try with the Scoob, who also played it many years ago.
I've actually got quite a vast list of games to get through now. On top of all the old ones like Dune 2 that I want to go back and finish, I've got the other Humble Indie Bundle 5 games, all the Humble Indie Bundle 6 games which I've just bought, The Witcher, Torchlight, Total Annihilation and Total Annihilation: Kingdoms which I've recently got from GOG (and yes, I bought Torchlight from GOG before the HIB 6 came out). I've also just downloaded Lord Of The Rings: Online, after only recently discovering it was free to play, and am also looking forward greatly to the release of Planetside 2, which just looks ace.
