A couple of months back I found loads of old notes about all the old Epic Space Marine games we played, starting from back when I was in high school. I thought it would be a good idea to type them all up as best I could, and upload them all. While I was at it, I also converted the Epic-S and 40K battle reports from their PDF state to HTML, and they can be found on the Warhammer 40K page.

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.

Punting The Hunt

Computer Games Blog

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.

25th November 2012 - Still Bottom Of The League

Have continued to play League Of Legends. Quite a lot of it in fact. Many evenings over the passed couple of weeks me and Scoob have logged in for a game or two. Also, my bro JIK has also started to play so we've been running a few training games with him.
I just wish I could pick one or two champs and really get good with them. Instead, I'm jumping around all over the place. Here are all the champs I've got unlocked: Alistar, Garen, Janna, Kassadin, Master Yi, Morgana, Nunu, Ryze, Sivir, Soraka and Tristana.
I seem to be able to kill a lot more with melee champs than ranged, with the exception of Alistar who I really don't like. But just like in WoW, my main role seems to be support. I just feel a lot more useful running as Soraka or Janna, or even as Morgana or Nunu support.

I've also played as Elise, Kennen, Pantheon, Sejuani, Shyvana and Twitch when they've been free. Would really like to unlock all of them also, except perhaps Sejuani. Really wanted to like her but couldn't really figure her out I guess.

The Scoob has stepped up to playing PvP games quite a lot now. As yet I've only tried the one, where I ran as support Morgana. We were intending for me to support Scoob's Ashe in bottom lane, but our Katarina player wanted to swap with him. We dominated against Nautilus and Kayle, but their Jax player turned up and started smacking us around the place, and unfortunately we ended up quite well beaten in the end.

As for other games, they have struggled to get a look in. A long while back now I did give The Witcher a little try, but only played it for about 30 minutes as I struggled to get into it. It just felt like the game didn't quite know what it was trying to be, with elements of classic RPGs and games like WoW and Diablo. I also hated the feel of how the character moved and attacked. Then again, I only played it for a little while. I didn't like Final Fantasy 7 when I first played that, yet when I gave it another go it became my fave game for many years.
I have also been purchasing more games from GOG while they've been on sale, in the forms of Settlers 2 and Heroes Of Might & Magic 3, and SWTOR has just gone FTP.
On top of that, Planetside 2 has just been released. Gotta get downloading I think...
