9th June: Surviving A Blizzard

Latest News

6th May 2019

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.

15th December 2018 - Lights Out

And so our adventures in the city of Harran came to an end today when we polished off Dying Light. Like the vast majority of games these days, this one had some things that really annoyed us, but overall it was really fun to play.
Several times during the playthrough, it made us think back to the good times we had playing Saints Row The Third, during which we also spent a lot of time just running around and getting into fights, only stopping to do the quests every now and then.

The things we didn't like included any mission where we had to climb up a tower, any mission where our equipment would be taken from us and returned to our stash (the game's inventory system is hot garbage), the shitty characters and story, and all the idiotic bugs.
And who doesn't enjoy the finale of a game when the end boss fight is just a series of button presses in a QTE style event. I mean, we had machine guns, shotguns, grenades, massive swords and axes, and instead we engage in a knife fight against a one-armed man and nearly lose. Sheesh.
Well, I guess a shit end fight quite suited how shit the villain was.

All the strengths here came from just running around the city and killing zombies and the human bandits, which was so much fun. In fact, it looks like we're going to go straight into the expansion, and get through that as well, as thankfully, the new GPU and PSU seem to have fixed my old computer.
To that end, I've got Diablo 2 installed on it again, just to see if it was the card that was making that game crash as well, or whether there is another underlying problem.
