Eve Online

Lately I've been playing a lot of Eve Online. It's a fun game and it's pretty unique. Probably the only game where it can feel extremely intense one moment then detached the next. What I love about it is that it really is one of the only MMO's that you don't have to make feel like work to enjoy. For example,

World of Warcraft. My experiences with it was that it was pretty awesome in the beginning, I was pretty impressed with the scale and all that. But after a while it became pretty inane and boring, and to me, it really doesn't take much skill to do anything competetently, it's all relative to the amount of time you can devote.

Eve Online. My experiences with it in the beginning were pretty much mired with thoughts along the lines of 'HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO'. I got so confused, but stuck it out because I'm a science fiction fag and eventually became slightly competent with it. What I liked about it is the fact that I didn't have to 'grind' to increase my skills. I mean sure, grinding does exist don't get me wrong, -I have yet to discover a MMO without some element of grinding in it, sadly- but Eve allows you to train whatever skills you want in the background whilst you play, or when you are offline. As well as this, there are hundreds of potential skills to be learnt, which all serve different purposes. So you can pretty much do what the hell you want in Eve without worrying about if you're pulling the max amount of exp/hour, and be as unique as you want (within reason) with your skillset, which was always a pet hate of mine in other MMOs, being identical to hundreds of other players.

And shit, got to go. I'll continue this later, apologies.

(Also, aware that my blogs are irregular, boring, rushed and pretty bland. Currently unable to stay as active as I would have liked, (probably started this at the wrong time actually) so I'm trying to get at least one entry out at least once every coupla days, but this means I have to rush it and shit. Apologies. After all this and when I get used to blogging I'll try to post interesting shit. I also might post a short story or two (I write, I'm a faggot.) )

Oh hey. didn't see you there.

So hi.

Didn't get to post yesterday as my connection is pretty unreliable at the moment. Which would normally suck and get in the way of vidya time but I picked up a few cheap singleplayer games over the Steam christmas sales, like The Witcher. Really good game, can't believe I never purchased it before, almost ashamed that I had the audacity to call myself an rpg nerd. And the fact that you get to have the sex with all the wimminz is a nice touch. I guess. But yeah, playing a silver-haired, scarfaced, monster-slaying cool ass motherfucker with a sword is always great, the only thing that lets it down for me was the combat system (slightly remniscient of Dragon Age:Origins purely because of the fact that you don't 'fight' shit yourself; you sort of line up with the fucker you're trying to kill, and click everyonce in a while when the screen gives you a prompt, but that's where the similarity ends.) but I'm even warming to that now. All in all, for how much it cost me it was an extremely good catch. If you missed the sales you can get it on steam for £12.99.

But what I'm thinking looks even more incredible is The Witcher 2, which I found out about shortly after.

Release date: May 17.

It's the alpha video, so the voices aren't actually going to be in the final game. PC excusive, so apologies to you consolefags!

Anyway, sorry for the briefness and bad quality, don't have much time and wanted to get a post out before I had to go.

Next time I'll try harder, maybe drone on about Eve Online or some crap like that.
I'm dedicated, I know.

Hey bro.

'Sup motherfuckers! Just started with this crap, finding my way around the interface. Barely.                     So I'm a geek, versed well in all things nerdy. I like to spout over-opinionated crap to anyone who will listen and write reviews. So I figured, in order to share my thoughts and views with people such as you, I might as well make a blog. 'Bout games and other nerdy shit.  So expect reviews about games, the odd mention of paintball and other things such as this. I'll try to get a post out every day but forgive me the odd slip now and again. Until then, see ya!
