This is a shamelessly short post just to let you know that I’m still here. My move to the sunny shores of Australia is progressing and entering into its final stages. I envisage my posts being sporadic to non-existent for the next month.
That doesn’t mean that I haven’t got anything to say. A Christmas tree/Plasma screen interface has meant that I’ve ended up with a new 3D capable 42″ Panasonic ST50 plasma TV. This new bit of kit has got me going through all my 3D-enabled games to see what the fuss is all about. Watch this space for Vic B’Stard’s take on 3D gaming.
Other than that it has been a bit quite of late. The arrival of the highly regarded Max Payne 3 did seem to be set to shatter the peaceful second quarter of the year and kick off the early run up to what promises to be another Christmas of madness.
Felicia Day and her cronies from hit web show The Guild have release a video for theirgeek anthem, I’m the One That’s Cool.
The video highlights the day-to-day struggles that being a member of geekdom brings, waxing lyrical about having to deal with all the cool kids that may find a game of Magic: The Gathering…well…a bit sad. It is a great track and forms part of something calledGeek & Sundry, Day’s new nerd hub.
Game patches are, generally speaking, a good thing. Being human, we all make mistakes. At least when a mistake is made in a bit of game code, developers have the opportunity to fix things.
At the moment I’m patching Battlefield 3 on the very same laptop that I’m writing this text. I’ve already patched the game on my desktop. I say patched, but we are not talking about a couple of megabytes here. The patch for EA’s shooter weighs in at around 4GB. In little old NZ where nobody actually has any money to spare and internet data is closely monitored (as well as charged for at ridiculous rates), EA’s 4GB patch will eat into a considerable amount of the average Kiwi’s meager internet data limit.
My wallet exhausted, my gaming schedule full, it’s time once again to take a look at my week in review.
Too many games to play has meant a delay to my usual weekly editorial missive. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks been lost between the a return to the ringworld of Halo, the battlefields of Modern Warfare 3 and the icy tundra of Skyrim. Before I embark on my journey to Constantinople in Assassin’s Creed Revelations, here’s a few words.
