30th July 2012: A Return?

Well so much for really pushing on with my rules, terrain, painting and wargaming in general this year. I have barely done anything since my last wargaming update. I fell out of touch with the Scoob for a few months and without his influence I lost pretty much all interest in the hobby. Doesn't help that I'm really off 40K, and absolutely hate painting.

But still, since the release of 40K 6th edition there has been a little bit of renewed interest. We haven't tried the new 40K yet (and I'm not massively enthused about what I've been reading about it), and my interest has mainly been in my own rules and trying to get those a bit further along.
And then yesterday out of the blue, Mr. Gallear made me do some painting, so I did a Blood Bowl model, which is my conversion I'll be using as Ugroth Bolgrot. I knew I hated painting, I had just forgotten how much. Whether I'll do any thing else wargamey soon I have no idea. Probably not. Could do with getting some more Blood Bowl in though. The last League Of Doom match was last September. Just not good enough.

26th July 2012: I Can See The Light

Finally! Amnesia is all done and dusted, and my nerves can settle again. What a freaky journey it was. Jeffrey only knows what they have in store for us in the sequel. I'm definitely hoping they make enemy and certain item locations random. Whether that is possible I have no idea, but it would really mess everyone up as it would be harder to ask for help on t'internets.

14th July 2012: The Final Episode?

Just finished the last Federation episode on STO. Really not sure whether to keep playing or just scrap it. It's really not all that exciting or tactical, and there are damn little bugs rampaging within, but there are a few reasons why I should probably carry on, at least for a little while:

So while I decide here's a bunch of images from the last few weeks in the Alpha Quadrant:

Me and the Scoob had a crazy rampage out of the blue earlier on Unreal Tournament 2004, which was the first time we'd played it in years.

T'was indeed a great deal of fun to jump back into those Goliath tanks or play the ever-entertaining CTF map Facing Worlds. Just a shame we were so out of practice and struggled to remember all the extra vehicle controls. Still, you can't beat a mad hour or two on that game. Groovin'.

8th July 2012: Why Is It So Dark In Here?

That's a good question, Daniel my boy. So after much bashing of computers to get them to actually work right I have continued into Amnesia, and have just got passed the pretty damn evil prisons. To be fair, though it is a really spooky and nerve-jangling game, it's just not as bad as I thought it was going to be. You learn fairly quickly how to deal with the enemies, and if you always expect an enemy to appear when you pick something up, open a door, or start climbing some stairs, they really do not surprise you when it actually happens. You just gotta always have a hiding place in your mind and just head for it when the shit goes down.
I do quite like the idea of the game though, and have even downloaded the development tools to have a look at making my own little levels, but wow that editor is awful. Still it would be interesting to do something a bit comical if I can figure it out.

In terms of future grooviness I have just started playing Transformers: War For Cybertron so I am ready for the sequel, but really should have got it on PC not PS3. I can't shoot for shite. Have also downloaded The Witcher from GOG.com after the Scoob said the second one is really good. And oh yes, at some point I may actually get RE2 and RE3 done also.
