Heroes Of The Storm
So I was trolling youtube the other day and came across a Blizzard trailer for Heroes Of The Storm. Now I’m definitely not a DoTA player, actually I haven’t even so much as looked at a MOBA-type game before, but this definitely has my interest. Being able to fuck shit up as Diablo is quite high on my list of things to try. It seems to be a DoTA-lite or DoTa for noobs which would really appeal to a complete scrub like me, who has always wanted to try DoTA, but was scared off by the learning curve. Blizzard have this knack of simplifying games just enough to make them accessible, but retaining good strategic depth. Very keen to see how this turns out!
In other news, I’ve been playing this game called Legends of Eisenwald made by Aterdux Entertainment, a small indie game studio based in Belarus. It’s available on Steam as an early access game at the moment and is surprisingly good! Those of you who are fans of turn based games like King’s Bounty and Heroes of Might & Magic should check it out. It has its quirks and bugs, but is very unique and has a lot of potential to be a classic game upon full release.
So yup, 2013 is here (happeh nuu yeeeear erryone) and I’ve moved house yet again. And it’s a good un! Larger room, moar storage, bigger bathroom, huge garage, a deck upstairs, open plan kitchen and living area, fast-ish internet, guitar and amp all set up. Significantly better than the old place which was, how do I put it, a little bit shit. Hopefully with a more settled living situation I can maintain some semblance of a steady update schedule.
Oh also Mass Effect 3 was fantastic, and I loved the ending (I had the extended cut installed).
PS – I’m also updating the CMS so the site may break O_O.
PPS – Ok nevermind, that was disastrous lol. Don’t fix what’s not broken!
Quick update. So yeah, moving into a new place, and everything is going all right… but there is NO INTERNET!!! Argggh. The worst part is I am still paying for it and New Zealand internet is fricking expensive. Gah!
No update this week
Christmas planning getting in the way. There will be one more update before I leave the country for Chrissie holidays. Holidays are awesome, I love holidays. Will return around mid jan.
Why did I get Skyrim
Argh. This has got to be the single most time draining game I’ve ever played. Haven’t been this unproductive in a long time, and I’m only level 10 or something. My character is a female wood elf rogue called Tarin. How original, I know. So far all I’ve done is break into houses and steal everyone’s things while they’re sleeping. I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun being a rogue in an RPG before. The almost endless world, cities and places to explore make this class more enjoyable to play than ever before. Pick ALL the pockets! _o/ Cook ALL the food! _o/ Make ALL the potions! _o/ Put baskets on NPCs heads so they can’t see you looting their store! So much fun. So little sleep…
