It's been a long while since the story section last had any attention. A while back, I gave up on the idea of ever finishing my Star Wars stories, so instead have typed out a rough outline as to what may have happened during the rest of the saga. I've also expanded the names & characters section with images where possible.
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.
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.
Me and Scoob went back to our school years yesterday when out of the blue we decided to play Pang on my Amiga emulator. I played quite a lot of this fun bubble-burster with my mates back in the day, but it was one of the many frustrating games of the time that had no save and therefore no real way for us impatient kids to complete.
However, the Amiga emulator has a very useful save ability that allowed us to keep reloading everytime we got killed.
An hour or so later, I was able to tick this off the list of games that I'd always wanted to finish.
It's all fun and cheesy grins at first...
...but that soon changes
Pop pop pop pop
We're coming to burst all your bubbles, America
Leaving Scoob to do all the work
This slippery bastard took forever
This damn level
Get 'em dude!
They don't make ending cinematics like this anymore
