On The Most Frustrating Game Ever

If you read my post a few days ago, you’ll know which game I’m referring to here. Dark Souls 2… Yeah, this game is probably the most frustrating game I’ve ever played. Which is saying a lot since I did finish the last Dark Souls. Now, if you don’t know anything about the series I’ll sum it up for you really quick. You’re going to die. A lot. This is not an understatement, or the fact that I feel like I suck at the game. You’re going to die and it is going to make you want to throw your controller through your TV (or in my case PC monitor). I really am not sure why the game designers hate the players so much, but I think they new there is a little bit of a masochist in everyone and that they would play this game until they wept. Or … Read more…

On Elder Scrolls Online – The Not So Good

So yesterday I discussed the finer point of Elder Scrolls Online, which I still maintain is a great game and is worth playing. Today though, I’m going to talk a little bit about the things I personally find annoying, or am not a huge fan of. Granted I don’t really think there is a lot to this topic, but I’m trying to post more, and I feel I should mention both aspects of the game. Gold Farmer / Spammers Ok, so this topic is absolutely not a game related issue. This is far from the first MMO where I’ve had to deal with gold farmers and spammers. This is more of a general MMO complaint. Personally I think the GM’s and other customer support people handle this very well from what I can tell. They make it easy to report a player and from what I understand actively pursue them. … Read more…

On Elder Scrolls Online – The Good

So one of the games I have been playing lately is “The Elder Scrolls Online”. I’ve heard mixed opinions about this game, good and bad, and thought that since I’m trying to do the blogging thing a bit more I’d put down my thoughts on the matter. I’ll start this off with the fact that I don’t know much about the series lore. The only Elder Scrolls title that I played before this one was Skyrim. Well, I tried to play Oblivion but it was years after the fact and I had a hard time adjusting to the graphics. So to rephrase that a bit, the only Elder Scrolls game I have finished was Skyrim. The focus of this post is going to be the things I like about the game, and I’ll have a follow up post about the things that I don’t particularly care for. Graphics So this … Read more…

On what to do with this blog, and talking issues.

First things first I guess. I’m not exactly sure what to do with this blog. Technically speaking I have two, and this one kind of started out as the accompaniment to my parody(?) twitter account. The problem is, both have shifted away from that, where this has become the blog I’ll post to, and that twitter account is the one I tweet with. I never could stick with the roleplaying the zombie doctor bit that I had intended for it, mainly because I’m just not that imaginative. So this puts me in a tough position. Do I keep this blog, and only this one, or do I let it sit with no new content on it and create one specifically for the stuff I tend to talk about? I have mental pro’s and con’s for both. Mainly, this blog I have some statistics about readers (the few that ever read … Read more…

On being lazy and forgetting my password

So as always it’s been a terribly long time since the last time I’ve posted anything. What can I say, I’m lazy. ¬†And I forget my password a lot. I’m going to try to keep this one short, and try to write up some more detailed posts soon. So to start off I’m going to talk about what I’ve been up to since the last time I posted. Work This is probably the main thing that has been keeping me busy. I work full time as a software developer focused primarily on internal business applications. Last year we added a new client and as a result had to translate part of our windows application in to a web based application. This is because the licensing for the web software is cheaper than the windows license and this particular client will have a lot more users than the other clients typically … Read more…

On Far Cry 3

I feel like I need more characters than twitter provides for once so I can accurately describe my experience with the game. I’ll start off by saying I played through this on the PC, not the console. I am not going to say any system is better than the other, I just enjoy playing on the computer when I can. I picked this one up on the PC mainly because my desktop could handle it and because it was on sale on Steam. Graphics: For the most part I really enjoyed how the game looked visually. I was able to really get in to the game while playing because the environments were so detailed. When crouching in the grass to try a stealth approach you could see in between individual blades of grass. The way the day/night cycles shifted was believable just because of the way the shadows were cast … Read more…
