I’ve spent the best part of the last 3 weeks jumping various games my allotted time being partially arranged around the baby/visitors/work & sleep. It’s been rather sporadic to say the least.

My excitement for Modern Warfare 2 has started to wain a little, it’s cause hasn’t been helped by the large percentage of blatant hackers in the game that can’t be reported in any shape or form.

But enough with the old and in with the new, well newish, ok, ok, once were new.
My current play list looks something like this:

  • Everquest 2 (14 day trial) — frustratingly XFire isn’t recognising EQ2 so no time is being marked against it. I’m not sure I could face another standard MMO at the moment but the characters are very detailed and i’ve found the none way-pointed missions¬† lead to more exploration.
  • Wizard 101 — Rach and I have been trying out some less resource intensive games that allow us to pick up and play when we get a spare minute. I’m finding the game is scarcely entertaining
  • Spellborn — I’ve taken to playing a little Spellborn when I fancy a change of pace. The game delivers something different each time I play.
  • Warhammer Online — I’m playing the free Tier one stuff but with multiple builds, mostly to get a¬† feel for how the classes are designed and how they work with the other player classes.
  • Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 (On the XBob) — I’ve been having some great fun with this title certainly one to try if you’re a Marvel fan.

Still to come:

  • Mass Effect — Everyone is Raving about Mass Effect 2 so I’ve decide to try and get the original game completed first, the only problem is I have to re-install it since my HDD swap.
  • Myst online – Hopefully I’ll get back into trying this now free title once more.
  • Chaos Rising Dawn of War 2 — looking forward to this expansion when it arrives.

Throw all that into the mix with everything and I find myself struggling to get a blog post writing in a week.

But it’s all good fun

Look and feel

I have failed to mention the fact that I have a new theme on my website. I’ve become annoyed with pure white and stark black themes that I have been seeking something that didn’t burn my eyes if viewed first thing in the morning.

It’s a tweaked version of a downloadable theme by James Barclay (, and I find it rather smart and easy going at the same time.

What do you think?

Branching out

Limited EditionAs you may have read I was recently asked by Shuttler over at Limited Edition to help contribute to his website, a rather scary prospect writing outside of the boundaries of my own websites. Thankfully I’m not the only new kid on the block at LE with the ever impressive Rockjaw also bolstering the ranks too.

So what’s it all about?
Well primarily I shall be posting about the City Of Heroes/Villains games, a topic as you may have guessed I rather enjoy writing about. I am hoping the new Comic/Hero focused games in development will get some coverage over the year too.

Rather than duplicating the posts on two websites I shall be creating small notifications for about each new post I make over on Limited Edition.

Wish me luck.

Oh look it's october

Well as always seems to be the way, my blogs have taken the back seat to normal life. Don't worry i'm still here even if updates materialise infrequently.

I'm hoping to get back into blogging more frequently but as time is limited it shall be one entry per week for now. Also after a recent patch I noticed that my RSS feeds are broken again, I'll get them sorted asap.

New going-ons

Today was my first day in my new job and after 7 hours of full knowledge absorbing day I have it admit it was bloody great! Nothing quite like getting to know an environment and systems by tackling some changes on your first day.

Additionally there is such a wonderful atmosphere in the whole office, something that sadly dissappeared in my previous role and was sorely missed.

So thanks to everyone that supported my efforts in going for this role, a massive step in the right directon for me.
