A recent Humble Weekly Bundle had Alan Wake in it. Seemed like a good deal at the time, so I picked it up. I have been playing it over the last week, and I have a few words.
One could say that I enjoy strategy games. A lot. Sins of a Solar Empire is another one. It is slow like turn based strategy games, but is technically a real time strategy. It is also a "4X" game, whatever that means. Something like explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate. That seems to describe it quite well.
I celebrated my birthday recently. As such, people go crazy. Jokes are played, and everything isn't taken at face value. Ubisoft decided that they would join in on the fun, too, and announce FarCry 3: Blood Dragon, except they were actually sorta serious.
As I mentioned before, I played Skyrim. But... I didn't really stop. In the intervening time, a few DLCs have trickled out. And now that they have announced that the team is moving on to something else, it seems that the coast is clear. I got all of these for about half off on various sales, so I figured, why not.
So after toying around with my Raspberry Pi, I discovered that ScummVM supports King's Quest 6. Good thing that I kept that disc from the very first computer that the family had. I imaged this disc a few years ago, so it should be saved from bit rot. So I copied the ISO over to my Pi and fired up ScummVM.
Recently, the first StarCraft 2 expansion came out. That has drawn me back into playing not just that, but the original, too. I have been reflecting a bit on a few things.
It was just this past week that I realized that since I upgraded my video card, I don't think I had ran the Heaven benchmark. I was reading something (what specifically I forget), when I saw another news posting. It said that the Heaven 4.0 was released.
