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.

You Can Not Be Serious

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.

24th April 2013 - Poking Games With Sticks

For the past few weeks I've been trying to raise some interest in other games that we maybe played years ago, or that I own and have never really played. But mostly we've been back playing that damn addictive League Of Legends. I think rather than take it any kind of seriously, we've just been farting around trying all the free champs and trying different things with ones we already own. We're not a bunch of nutters that learn all the champs and items to max their chances of winning like most people who play the game. There's not enough time in my life for that.
Speaking of champs we own, I've unlocked Nidalee and Blitzcrank, JIK's unlocked Miss Fortune and Fiddlesticks, and Scoob has been tempted away from the lovely Ashe and is now using Draven and Vayne a lot. Though we don't play proper PVP games, we have had a couple of PVP games just amongst ourselves, where Scoob and his ass kicking Draven always clear up.

Run away!

But I have managed to install some of my older games, always a fun task on Windows 7, and we recently gave Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds a run out. We used to play the hell out of that game once upon a time, but we really did struggle to get back into it. Yes, we couldn't remember what the hell was going on, but it was just so very slow compared to RTS style games we've played in more recent years. Also, we put it on easy thinking we would need it due to our lack of practise, but we stomped all over the enemy. I'll be quite surprised if we play it again, but hopefully I'll keep some interest in it as I never did the campaign, and could do with going through it.
