Stealing your glowies

I’m 83% through Shades of Grey (Unabridged) by Jasper Fforde, narrated by Gareth Armstrong.

A humble brag

I’ve always enjoyed the offerings from Humble Bundles and I have purchased a large number of deals from the website in the last few years. Mostly for 1 maybe 2 of the games in each bundle and I have a healthly game backlog growing

So when the monthly subscription was announced I was more than happy to give it a whirl, because who doesn’t like a mystery box.

So far I’ve received 3 monthly bundles containing a good mixture of games, these have been:

  • November 2015 Humble Monthly
    • Steam Keys
      • Legend of Grimrock 2 [Preorder]
      • Towerfall Ascension
      • Besiege
      • Valkyria Chronicles
      • Lethal League
      • SanctuaryRPG: Black Edition
      • Saints Row IV
    • DRM Free
      • Legend of Grimrock 2
      • Towerfall Ascension
      • Besiege
      • Towerfall Ascension
  • December 2015 Humble Monthly
    • Steam Keys
      • Banished
      • Rust (Early Access Game)
      • Chroma Squad
      • Neon Struct Deluxe Edition
      • Company of Heroes™ 2
        • Company of Heroes™ 2: The British Forces
        • Company of Heroes™ 2 – The Western Front Armies: US Forces
        • Company of Heroes™ 2 – The Western Front Armies: Oberkommando West
      • Payday 2
        • Payday 2: The Big Bank Heist
        • Payday 2: Gage Mod Courier
        • Payday 2: Gage Assault Pack
        • Payday 2: Dragan Character Pack
    • DRM Free
      • Banished
      • Chroma Squad
      • Neon Struct
      • Neon Struct : The Dulce Archives
      • Shadwen Sneak Peek [Only for monthly subscribers]
  • January 2016 Humble Monthly
    • Steam Keys
      • The Talos Principle
      • The Masterplan
      • Mushroom 11
      • Grim Fandango Remastered
      • Spelunky
      • A Fistful of Gun
    • DRM Free
      • The Masterplan
      • Mushroom 11
      • Grim Fandango Remastered
      • Spelunky
      • A Fistful of Gun

Thankfully I have mostly received games that I don’t already own, with a few exceptions but then the normal bundles can often have the same issue. One of the things that I enjoy the most is that unlike Loot Crate or Nerd Block, the only thing that get cluttered up is my steam library, which is easily resolved.

Facing Diablo

Yesterday evening I completed the main 5 Acts of Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls, I have to say I really enjoyed the story even if there was no clear plot device for me showing up and smashing everyone’s pots and vases to shit.

My barbarian is now level 55 and primed to hit adventure mode, when I feel ready to go back to it. It’s odd that in some game I will favour ranged but others melee is more my style, I’m looking forward to trying the demon hunter out in the future too.

This week update 2.4 had gone live which also triggers the start of Season 5 ,which I see a number of people (especially on twitter) including Belghast is taking part in it. I may roll a character but not really convinced that I’ll put too much time into it.

Only a quick post today as I have a head cold and feel awful.

Having a GameBlast

After wanting to take part in a charity gaming event for some time, I decided that this was the year to stop talking and get doing. So rounded up a few people to take part in SpecialEffect’s GameBlast16 event.

Forged online

In the last week we’ve upgraded our Monitors and Graphics cards and have been enjoying playing games in proper widescreen and without as much glitchiness.
Plus I get to say “My new years resolution is 1920 by 1080” 😉

forge-black

I’ve been trying to remember to run Forge when I’m playing a game it supports, for those who aren’t familiar (really it’s been around ages) with the website/software, it a simple way to share your gaming. It allows you to stream live and allows you to extract screenshots and up to 30 second clips, all without the annoying set up of OBS or XSplit for video capture, but also it’s a one way channel, people can watch you stream but there is no chat that you have to monitor or feel obliged to use to interact with other people.

I’m still finding that the quality of the recordings is a little lacking and I can’t figure out if it’s just my rig that has issues or just a limitation of the software.  There is a new version coming soon that with have better native recording.
