Did some work behind the scenes of the game blog page so that the game filters now work much better.

30th June 2017

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.

29th September 2013 - The Last LoL

Pretty much sure I'm done with LoL at long last. I'd mostly played simple games with real life friends to chill out and avoid the very toxic community that is out there. But in a recent patch Riot Games have changed it so you can no longer get experience unless you play proper games with at least 5 players. Pretty dick move forcing you into having to join up with strangers. But hey. The game can go suck it.
Here's the last few images from our more recent adventures.

As we'd been struggling finding new games to play, we tried out some old stuff. First, back on the PS2 there was a Baldur's Gate game called Dark Alliance. While it's a game I finished back then, I never managed on the extreme difficulty. The end boss just killed me over and over. As Scoob had finished it on extreme, we decided to go through it together, confident we could both do it. But it was not to happen, as once at the end we just kept getting murdered, confusing us both.
As we fancied a bit more action RPG, we tried installing Diablo 2, as that is something I've never finished and Scoob's never played. But it just felt so old and bland that we couldn't get into it. Instead, we returned to more recent games and have been playing some Torchlight 2, as well as me finally trying to get through The Witcher. More on those soon...
