I tend to get snatches of time during the weekend - 30 min here and there. I don't get to sit down and properly game until after 8pm, once Felix is in bed, we've eaten and the washing up has been done. Boring stuff. Life stuff. My proper gaming has been the engrossing Planetside 2, with it's ridiculous battles. When I get bits and pieces of time, I play Minecraft as I can do a bit and leave it.
I've been playing a lot of Planetside 2. A lot. I'll sit down for an hour at the end of a stupidly stressful day at work. As I play more, it has changed for me (for the better) and being in the Maniacs [MACS] outfit has certainly made it more fun.
Pete's hit a PRIME number. The last one this decade.
I've been dabbling in P2 this weekend. I've been looking for something to fix my FPS habit since the days of "Don't trust my landing, lads". Planetside 2 is free and therefore makes me suspicious about power levels/unlocks and buying a win. I honestly can't see that being a problem on P2 (you'll see why). Hunting as a lone wolf works perfectly, as does in a team.
Hi chaps, I won't be Friday night gaming this week cos I'm popping in to see Sam Fraser. Last time that Scotsman was down south, he married one of OUR WOMEN and then TOOK HER BACK ABOVE THE WALL. I need to make sure he doesn't do it again.
Gaming wise, I'm about to have a bit of a shift, I think. I love returning to Minecraft for a bit of a "holiday", it really feels like a second home and I can potter around like a digital garden. I'm still planning on finishing CSA, and improving the underside now it is up so high.
How many years to 40 now?
The next game purchase I am likely to make is GW 2 but I am not convinced it's for me. Noel (office gamer chap) says it's going to change the world. I know there are some GW1 fans on here. Anyone catch the Beta? Any thoughts? Opinions? Half formed points of view welcome!
Saints Row 3 is awesome. Got it in the Steam sale and played it Co-Op with the big fella last night. It's fucking hilarious but not because it's trying to be funny, just because it is. It is because if you have a penchant for fucking about then it will help you fuck about more than any other game I know.
So, I've got all these games in my Steam account that I rarely play. Or have never played. They came as bundles or got gazumped by other, flashier games. So I redownloaded a couple to play and here's what I think.
