i got a lucky streak with a mountain composed heavily of cobblestone, so i have been able to turn it into a pretty nice looking apartment tower.  i am currently expanding it downward and outwards to search for other materials.  it took a while to get the hang of it, but i see the lure of addiction.  i haven't even begun to find all the other cool materials available, which makes it harder to do much at night except excavate the lower floors. 

I would suggest in the early game that you just explore around the outside of cliffs to find some coal as soon as possible. 

i will need to make it a day trip as the mountain i am on is pretty much the only big land feature on the island.  there are lots of little ones in sight but nothing that hints at a coal deposit.  i usually do my smelting at night for glass and use the minimal light it casts off to do more mining.  i have the smelter sitting above a glass floor which doesn't reach all the way down to the basement, but is enough when i am a few floors above.  i expanded out to the ground floor and put in windows and a lower door so i know when the sun comes up. 

i have a pretty cool trap in place for the spiders and the other creatures which lets me roam pretty freely during the day and not worry too much about them.  the damn lurkers aren't smart enough to climb up though so i always watch when i go out.  i just need to clear out the leaves around the top so the sun burns away the undead. 

i started a second world on my home pc and got a snow world.  looks pretty awesome but i haven't got many trees near the spawn.  great looking cave entrances though.

hope to finish up acb's sp story which shouldn't be too much longer.  instead, i got sucked into the opium den known as minecraft and played that most of the day yesterday.  my internet was flaky on friday and after the week i had, i was not all that concerned with getting back online with anything. 

today, likely very little as it's the start of the xmas party.

So much for Bethesda saying that this game would have an incredibly short timespan between its announcement and its release.

Still excited though.


be thankful it isn't Guillmero's timeframe of 2013



a year isn't that bad though.  how long did we know about es4 before it's original release date?

Ipad 2 rumors are heating up.  The original was announced on January 27th, so seems very likely we'll get a refresh announced at the end of next month.  According to articles the new one will have a camera, be lighter and slimmer overall, possibly a USB port, and have a higher-resolution display.  Sounds like not a major revision, but I'm excited.  I'll definitely be taking the plunge on this one.

and that, plus the usual apple routine of doubling the storage for the same price has me holding back from buying one at all right now.

Agreed.

You know, games like this make me glad the AAA game industry exists, even with all its issues. I don't see any movie company making any thing to this level or in this setting for a while.

What's crazy is how well the in-game graphics match the CG, and as much as I hate monotone color schemes, the gold and black color scheme really invokes a blade runner style future.

Oh, and I think Square Enix might be really happy with their decision to pickup this game.

edit: Rats, turns out they had the score to the trailer released online for a while, but the links are all dead.

if i do get a chance to play on the old console or the pc, it will either be one of the random puzzle games i now have from the steam sale or more ACB.

well, the expansion didn't pan out thankfully, but the main game was certainly long enough.  in fact, i have played with Sick Child Tycoon each night since.

Bobehm and I were discussing this morning... from what we can gather he probably whispered in Rick's ear that...

Spoiler for Hiden:
his wife is pregnant. It'd fit with them all taking blood tests, right? By the way, I checked your blood test and your wife came back pregnant. It also fits with his whole line of "This is the humane thing to do".

I really can't believe I have 11 more months to wait for the next season.

That actually crossed my mind this morning.  And to make matters worse...

Spoiler for Hiden:
...what if the baby is Shane's?

best not to read the books then. 

in fact, i would avoid them for now as while they are good, they also veered off quite a bit at the end of season 1 and if they go back to the script as it were, it will be much better tv for those of you who haven't read it.  wait until the show is done and then go back to see what you missed/what was changed.

yeah, while it is no way near what the books ended the first volume with, i have to hand it to them for writing it in such a way that it could have been a series finale.  it reminds me of the last scene in 28 weeks later; haunting, sobering and lasting.

the final act is definitely plausible considering the agency involved.  in fact, i would be surprised if something like that wasn't already in place. 

now, the little quirks weren't too bad, even though the test subject reveal was easily guessed at early on, it only underlined how little hope he had left. 

damn it's going to be hard to wait for the next season.

I fell in love with Galaxy on Fire over Thanksgiving. Totally old schoolnspace trading/fighting sim. Takes about an hour to open up the galaxy. The galaxy is freaking huge too. Repetitive to be sure but so were these games back in the day. Lots of fun and free at the moment.

Galaxy on Fire 2 is so much better in so many ways.  I liked the first one, but the second one is really fantastic.

picked up both today and i agree, even on a lowly 3g iphone where the lack of power stands out more.  the game just feels more fleshed out and less like a 1st gen gameloft rip-off.

There was fun to be had in Prototype, but I liked Infamous more. I don't remember it too well, but what stuck with me was the repetitive nature of side missions. Flying was fun, and stealing tanks (and mowing down pedestrians  ninja) and helicopters added to the firepower factor. They definitely have an opportunity to improve some of the issues in the sequel, but we'll see if they go the way of Assassin's Creed or The Force Unleashed.

mowing down pedestrians was fun, but towards the end it just got a little too dynasty warriors-ish with the standard grunts.  and going through crowds of civvies or infected just felt like a reason to show off the designers "really wicked blood splatter effects".  side missions were pretty bad though.  way too stingy with the time limits and not a lot of variety.

what about the whole "russia during the revolution" theme they went with in the comic?  i do think with everything they've pointed to during the subject 16 stuff that a founding fathers as templars would be next in line.  it would be pretty kick ass too as you would still want to use the old ways rather than rely on firearms.  it's not like the hand cannon is all that useful anyways. 

i wouldn't mind the russian angle though, especially during the winter months.  could make for some very interesting chases.

FYI, the entire first season of Star Blazers is available to buy on Amazon VOD for around $6.  Last time I looked, the actual DVD set was over $100.

Yup, its one pricey series - new copies of the 1st season sell for $130 at the cheapest retailer in my area. As much as I like it, I don't think it's the best series for it's genre. When you can get Crest of the Stars, it's Banner of the Stars sequels, Planetes or Nadesico for less than $50 at most stores in my area, I can't say I recommend it often to friends.
I'm not sure if Amazon.ca has VOD, but I'm going to check into it.
yeah, a wee bit expensive.

just for reference, here's the link for the VOD

now that i have a bd player that supports amazon vod, this kicks ass.
