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

25th April 2017

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.

24th December 2012 - Let The Madness Begin

Just recently I got Scoob and the JIKmon to give Lord Of The Rings Online a little bit of an effort. I wasn't a massive fan of this game when I tried it on my own a while back, and I was hoping that wandering around in a group would make it a bit more interesting, and would recover a little bit of the enjoyment we used to get from back in our WoW days when we first started out as the Skumsplattaz. I joined them in starting a new character rather than continuing with Kreethen. This time I chose an Elf called Tezzerz, while JIK went with a Dwarf called Giberaldi (after Garibaldi was taken), and Scoob went with his normal Ragnarkharn after his two fave 40K characters.
We only went through the introductory questline, and are all uncertain whether we will continue. I guess the game is ok just for hanging around and killing an hour or two here and there, but there's no denying that we all now find the typical MMORPG game to be a very boring and bland experience. When we first played WoW, it was all very new, and everyone was playing it, even people that didn't really play games that much. These things helped WoW seem like a better game than it really was. I highly doubt we will ever have that enthusiasm for an MMORPG ever again.
Though I guess in one way it would be nice to continue, as for once I'm not playing as the healer character...

Then I pretty much decided we needed to play more multiplayer games. My three computers were immediately jabbed with game discs, and Rome: Total War, Unreal Tournament 2004, Settlers 3, and Dawn Of War: Dark Crusade were soon ready for action.
Up first was UT2004:
