Did some work behind the scenes of the game blog page so that the game filters now work much better.
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.
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.
Today me and Mr. Gallear had some games of Dawn Of War to try and remember how to play it properly. As usual I went with the Tau and their amazing plasma firepower. Gallear tried something different than his usual Necrons or Eldar, and went with Guard.
Up first we did an 8 player free for all, with 6 CPUs to fill things out. At first we each had our struggles against CPU players, but forged through them and started to fight each other. As the battle went back and forth, the last two CPU players sat staunchly in their bases, whereas they could have been attacking us and causing problems. Instead, they waited for me to grind Gallear down, and then I was easily able to finish them off.
Up next was a 4v4, and we teamed up to take on the Chaos scum and their traitor Guard allies. This time Gallear chose Eldar, and dominated the enemy from the start with his Wraithguard and Warp Spiders tearing it up.

It had been such a long time since we had played it multiplayer. It was good fun just going nuts on the game again.
