Finally got my pointing pictures up and into the Vault. Don't ask me why.

Opened up a new section all for including stuff about the board game Super Dungeon Explore. There's not much in there yet until my own rules are finished, but hopefully will get some content in there soon.

V6 reaches its final form, as I've added the right info bar for wider screens, as well as managing to update all the blog posts in fairly rapid time. Had the bright idea to write a script which went through the old blog posts and updated all the image tags for me, so I barely had to do any work in the end.

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.
30th September 2012 - I Control The Spice. I Control Dune.
Slowly plugged away trying to do a level a day on Dune 2, and have just managed to beat it. It was actually harder than I thought it was going to be, and I had to restart a couple of missions until I'd worked out a more efficient build order.
My main two issues with the fighting though were the very hard hitting rocket turrets, and the bloody annoying Sandworms. I don't remember there being so many back in the original game. And they would always ignore the enemy harvesters if any of mine were nearby. I mean literally move right passed their's to come at mine. On the penultimate level, which was for some reason the mission I had the most difficulty on, those big bastards musta had about 5 or 6 of my poor harvesters. Grr.
Overall though I do feel that the Dune Legacy version is probably a bit easier as I chose to always have the map fully revealed from the start, and you can drag to select multiple units and command them at the same time, whereas you could not do those things in the original.
Still I'm not going to complain about that. Finished another game I always wanted to finish.
