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.

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.

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.

14th August 2014 - Unrealtime

It was back in December that I last played through a bit of Unreal with JIK and Scoob. Since then, we've not been able to all get together to continue, so I finally decided to finish this one by myself.
It was an absolute pain in the ass to play because of the mouse acceleration, which I couldn't fix even with tweaks to the .ini files. What is it with software companies not giving us the option to turn off mouse acceleration in their systems and games? So annoying.
I guess it doesn't matter as long as the game is done and complete.

Back to our adventures in LoL, and me and Scoob got a bit annoyed a few weeks back when Riot activated the Doom Bots for a few days. Playing against the Doom Bots was an interesting challenge, and one that we found very difficult while lumped in with other random players. We tried a few times to beat them, and in each game me and Scoob were able to push bot lane, usually getting to their inhibitor turret, only to have the rest of our team falter and allow both other lanes to get pushed back to our own base.
Maybe in one of the games we should have just tried to keep pushing and hope our team mates could hold out, but each time we would 'port back to help, usually after some whining from our other players. Inevitably, our defending would fail, as the other players would dive in aggressively, die, and then leave me and Scoob with no chance to defend. Bastards.

In the one game that looked like it was going our way quite comfortably, our other players seemed quite good for a change. We were 31-15 up on the bots and sieging their base, when lo and behold our Rengar player quit or had connection issues, leaving us 4v5. If we were expert players we may have been able to force it through, but the bots immediately grouped, stomped straight across the map and finished it. Gutted.
