6th November: Not Having A Blast

Latest News

29th October 2017

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.

Finally got my pointing pictures up and into the Vault. Don't ask me why.

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.

6th November 2018 - Forever The Wanderer

Back in the very early 2000s I played a bit of Diablo 2 after hearing my bro talking about it. He'd played it co-op with a few of his friends and they all seemed really into it, so I ended up giving it a try.

It was all well and good, and I was quite into it. That is, until the third act I believe it was. During that part of the game, as far as I can remember, you are tasked with collecting three items that will allow you to unlock some magical staircase and continue the adventure.

Now, I collected these items, and used them to open the way forward. Then, I saved the game and turned it off. The next time I came to play the game, I found that the way forward was again closed, and all of the items had vanished from my inventory. As I didn't feel like playing most of the third act again, I just gave up.

I never really bothered with the game after that other than a few years later when Scoob and I started to play it co-op but didn't even get out of the first act.

Anyway, fast forward to this September, and out of the blue we decided to try again. After (seeming) to get it to run on my two current computers, we fought our way through act one, and were enjoying our couple of hours in the game every weekend.

However, the progress did not come without its costs, as at several times, my older computer just decided to crash in a variety of ways.

After the last crash on the first sewer mission of act two, we seem to have decided to not push this one any further. Unfortunately, this again seems to leave this game in its perpetual state of limbo, as it's unlikely I'll play it on my own.
Just not sure what to say. This game appears to be cursed for me for whatever reason.
