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.

26th November 2013 - So Unreal

Back in the late 90s, very much unlike now, I used to play first person shooters quite a lot. Duke Nukem 3D, Quake 3 Arena and Unreal Tournament were probably the most popular multiplayer games of that era for my friends and I. At one stage, I got the first Unreal game for free along with a graphics card (ahh, that old Voodoo3), and tried to play through the campaign with my bro and bro-in-law. We got to a map called the Sunspire, and got very stuck in its maze of darkness. I don't know why. Maybe we'd not figured out how to use flashlights or flares, or realised that the default dispersion pistol could be used to light the way. Whatever the reason, we got no further and went back to other games.

And then a couple of weeks back I thought it was about time I got that game finished at last. My bro was up for revisiting Na Pali, so we got it installed and dived in. After a couple of sessions, we were back to the Sunspire, and the Scoob popped round to join us in conquering it at last. It really wasn't that hard after all.

We're now about three quarters through the game, and I'll hopefully be able to tick this one off the list soon.

Of course, playing the original game got us a taste for some FPS goodness, so we've also been enjoying more madness in UT2004 again:
