The end dude: Bioshock spoiler
Date Created: March 27, 2009  Date Modified: March 27, 2009

Just finished Bioshock
last night, in anticipation of the sequel to be out later in the year. and I must say that the end dude (which is atlas, who is really fontaine!) is a bit too easy to kill, shit i found nitro splicers harder to kill.

the ending had some unanswered questions and Im wondering if i would get a diffrent result if I rescued the little sisters instead of harvesting them all. guess i have to start over and find out.

Farcry 2
Date Created: March 19, 2009  Date Modified: October 14, 2012

Im more of a fan of the game engine than the game itself. I love burning down forests, now i can do it in the comfort of my own home. However there were a few plot issues that put me off Farcry2. I was playing it for the first time, gin and tonic in reach, and yet i still kep dying of malaria!, this shat me to no end.

so i shelfed the game at 2%, i had fallout to clock–civil war in Africa is outranked by neuclear war in America.

When I picked up the game again recently I noticed somting that if id known prior, it may have given me more incentive to put the disk in: Player Built Maps!

YES!, you can build you own maps in farcry2, why did nobody mention this to me before? I have been a modder on PC’s for years and never for once thought (ok, little big planet dosnt count) that modding would be a “thing” on the consoles–man times have changed since the first PS console!

the toolset is certainly no NWN2 toolset, but its easy to pick up–I would even assume for those with no 3D experience, and the terrain generator is fairly realistic. Its a little strange going from building worlds on a PC than it is sitting on a couch using a controller to smooth out terrain, but its also a bit more relaxed than at the desk, ciggi ash falling in keyboard and eyestrain from a 19 inch CRT that is on its last legs.

I have yet to check out any of the User Built maps online–I choose to keep the PS3 disconnected from the network for bandwith reasons, but when ive got my little deathmatch finished i’ll share and share alike with the rest of the malaria infected gamer community!

not so strange request…
Date Created: March 12, 2009  Date Modified: March 12, 2009

I have been asked to draw people naked on a few occasions, normaly when drunk and… ok lets not get into that right now.

I had a request on deviantart from some guy wanting me to draw his wife–sure, ill do that, im just not sure if he is pulling the piss. I asked to send a photo of his wife and I seriously hope its not a wadge shot…

if this is real, then cool. somone likes my work.

Bioshock 2
Date Created: March 9, 2009  Date Modified: March 9, 2009

When i herd this was announced my first thought was “awsome”. but if this article is true, and Take Two announced it early to keep stock prices up then it will be some time before the game is in my PS3 and im killing splicers with exploding shotgun shells…

and Im happy to wait. I waited for GTA4 and was dissapointed with a game thats half finished, so the more I have to wait, the better and more refined the final game will be.

Id rather see it released in 2010 and have a better game, (with more guns and ammo than the original) than have it pushed thru to get in to peoples xmas stockings. This is not a childrens game anyway!, PARENTS DONT BUY THIS FOR YOUR CHILD NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY BITCH AT YOU!. Id rather wait to the first quater of 2010 to not have all the good bits of voilence removed to adhear to Australias draconian cencorship laws (btw: more games are banned in Australia than China and Saudi Arabia combined!), Id rather wait for the game to be perfect and bug free than to have it rushed to the shelfs…

Also, Im still only halfway thru the original–give me time to clock!

None of these were good enough to post I thought, but I had some drafts saved from earlyer in the year so I figure if I post these images on one of them, they still get to be on the site, just not in a high traffic area.

Rotascoping in Mirrors Edge
Date Created: March 9, 2009  Date Modified: March 9, 2009

I hated Waking life–fuckin psudo-exestential horseshit. and the rotascoping made me more ill than the story or lack there of. So when I saw the cut scenes in Mirror’s Edge were of a similar style, i wasnt sure if it worked.

My first reaction was: They spent ages making a highly detailed city, and then rotascope the fuckin cutscenes–althou its not realy rota scoping, its probably just a clever flash annimation…

A few cut scenes later and the style is growing on me. this tactic of making games more like television (see my post on Siren Blood Curse) is definatly a good step. A step to interactive TV perhaps?

Im still not going to watch waking life again, however

Welcome to my Neverwinter Mod Blog
Date Created: March 8, 2009  Date Modified: March 8, 2009

Hi,

Like many I have tried my hand at creating mods for various games, liuckily Neverwinter Nights includes a toolset that is easy for anyone to pick up. I have played around with a few mods but this one is almost good enough to share.

The aim is to escape from a prison/death camp, its far from complete but still have a look.

I’ll use this blog to keep all up to date on developments of the mod…

COME BACK LATER

Siren Blood Curse
Date Created: March 6, 2009  Date Modified: March 6, 2009

I picked up a game the other day from the bargain bin at EB–Siren Blood Curse. I had never heard of the game before but, Sirens, Blood and curses are all elements that constitute a good game…

(i cant think of any curses in GTA thou… plenty of blood and sirens!)

It kinda shits me how they added the noise to the visuals, on a 42in bravia it looks like shit–but the Idea they used to make the game play out like a television series is fuckin awsome!.

thou this is not GOTY contender its still a good few hours of running from zombies, and thats what we all want from a game isnt it?
