Gonna hop on Red Dragon again
Man I love losing
Man I love losing
They’re inexpensive so I figured I’d try out two different types.
It’ll also encourage me to try to have people over to record.
Blah, only issue being that my best recording mic right now is my ribbon mic, but it’s a two way and not friendly to anything other than a pure recording environment.
It picks everything up >_>
Probably tomorrow night. I have a gun show to go to in a few hours.
I just really dig the Minmatar in EVE even though they’re not into missiles so much. They use projectile weapons, shoddy looking ships, and their back story is interesting. They were enslaved by the Amarr because they fought amongst themselves as tribes. Sort of angry about that they now war with the Amarr (the Amarr are religious zealot types). The Caldari also border the Minmatar. The Caldari are a society run on military and efficiency, so while they Minmatar have respect for the Caldari’s fighting prowess, they hate them for their bullshit bureaucratic ways.
Then opposite the Minmatar are the Gallente federation. A federation that have a more free spirited, trade and artisan focus. The Gallente have the widest range of societies within it’s federation. The Minmatar seem to be at war with them least of the three.
I’m not sure precisely what it is about the Minmatar that I do like. I think I secretly want to me angry sometimes, so it feels good to RP someone who’s got a life of conditioning to kill and hate. I’m a peaceful person in real life who loves to physically fight. The opportunity rarely presents itself to spar with friends so I think I have a lot of built up adrenalin at times. Going off on my punching bag can be nice, but it really is absolutely nothing like taking shots to the ribs or side of the head. I know I’m ranting a tiny bit, but it plays right into it.
I really need to get back to journaling and writing more.

Aside from needing to update video drivers I haven’t had a single glitchy thing happen.

I’m actually enjoying it a lot. I’m gonna play some of the campaign because I’m currently at work. I almost got teary eyed when I hopped in though. It feels so good.
Steam group made
Probably do something with a tumblr
Gives me an excuse to upload raw gameplay footage
Sons of Sun Tzu is a go ^_^
Dead Space 3
Sins of a Solar Empire
Warland Airland Battle
Bob Came in Pieces
Looking for any Aussie gamers. I’m going to be moving to a graveyard shift in the states and I’ll have a lot of gaming hours more with you guys. I know the latency won’t be the best, but I’d love a group to game with.
Do a review, video review, and get some art inspiration/practice from the wonderful designs.
It actually feels better than I thought. I don’t think I’ve ever touched a laptop this nice before.
I think I’ll be dropping “True Emergence” as my name, and simply using “True Emergence Gaming” as a group name, and Alex Mackey as my online name.
Most of my favorite outlets use their real names, and I don’t see a reason to be tied to the company name. Jeff Gerstmann, Vinny Caravella, Adam Sessler, etcetc
So that works
Between that and my laptop my bank account is gonna be strained for a month. That’s fine with me though. Gonna get some shit done,.
So, Red Orchestra 2 single player. What can I say? I think that the game is sound, and multiplayer is probably a blast (especially with a group of the right people), but as a single player game it doesn’t hold up terribly well.
I think the only big issue that I struggle with is the AI….
I think that the characters are pretty interesting, but not given enough time
I think the combat has potential, but falls short
I think that the upgrade system is broken and over simplified
I think that the combat on Hard isn’t interesting
I think that the health system doesn’t know what it’s doing
I think that the loot system doesn’t make any sense
I think that the vigors don’t fit into the world
I know that these are complaints that have been raised before. I’m just shocked that the game falls so short of it’s predecessors, but was still praised so highly by critics. I don’t dislike it because I think it’s cool to dislike it, but because I think it feels confused and a bit broken.
