Black Powder War (Temeraire, Book 3)

Pick up some eggs in Turkey, head back in to the continent and try to get past Napoleon. Harder than it sounds.

The 800 series had smooth, youthful skin.  We spotted them easy, but these are new.  They look geriatric... wrinkles, hearing aids, Old Spice smell, like to watch Matlock, tell rambling stories, everything.  Very hard to spot.  I had to wait till he moved his walker with tennis balls toward you before I could zero him.

What platform you on Blackjack?
PC.

I was going to lament the demise of the whole multiplatform multiplayer gaming dream. Given that Diablo 3 on console was designed differently to make best use of the platform and controls and essentially is a different game... re:

Console Differences (Updated List)
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9882708462

It would obviously be impossible to do multi-platform in this case, so I can't hardly use the game as a basis for that lament.  icon_smile

=====================
Yes about everyone apparently only playing their level cap characters. imho the expansion focusing on end game is sort of a zero sum thing because it gives no carrot to replay the story line stuff so essentially it makes the game servers appear empty until you reach the cap. It gives an entertaining end game treadmill (rifts, rifts, and then I see everyone at forums complaining there's nothing else to do) apparently for a certain amount of fun time.

I can't really wail about gamer preferences changing. Except I guess in my days of Diablo I and II, maybe even in terms of City of Heroes for the few months before WoW launched and stole its thunder, is people seemed to play more in those days because the act of playing was fun, act of splurching monsters and doing so through fun, mostly randomized environments (D1, D2, I mean; not COH) was fun. And it wasn't necessarily only to reach the cap and then just keep expecting the game to spit out end game loot repeatedly like a Pez dispenser.

It just doesn't seem like gamers actually enjoy playing games anymore. They don't enjoy the journey, that is. They want to reach the end and get all the best stuff, and then complain about it not really being the best stuff, and nothing new to do, why should I continue playing? This seemed similar to how people reacted to Arrowhead's Gauntlet reboot. Race through the levels, complain there's "nothing new to do" and then stop playing.

At least that's what I glean from the official forums. Perhaps they don't necessarily represent a broad enough view, and I'm oversimplifying the gaming world today.  icon_smile

But I hope to reach L70 and then maybe I'll eat my words.  icon_razz

There are two words that come to mind regarding this announcement that leave me highly skeptical when combined:

"PS3" and "MMO".

Can't wait. Hope Capcom doesn't get too crazy with their business model.

Also, the harder zombies are attracted by loud noise.
Yes, and while they are seemingly more vulnerable to head shots, they also dodge like a ninja and jump up on all surfaces.  

I progressed further along and went through the first night escape mission.  That was an incredibly tense and unsettling experience.  I was cut down before I made it to the first safehouse.  I made it past the 2nd closest safehouse on my 2nd attempt but botched a landing and ended up in a 1 on 1 fight against a viral.  

My 3rd attempt was staying the hell away from them at all costs.  Now when mama Jade says it's time to go inside a safe house, I listen.

I'm about level 6 all around now.  

The first night escape was indeed intense and scary. Pressing Y (on the XB1) while running enables you to look over your shoulder and time slows down a bit to plan your next move if the virals are danger close.  I just got a skill that lets me throw equipment (ninja stars, moltovs, flares, etc.) and turn on your UV light while looking back when running
