:lol: well according to the news, there's a spy penguin. Haven't found that yet. They've added a bit more to the fairly empty "fringe" areas and as I mentioned in the edit above, a cute fish. Or maybe that was there all along and I didn't see it before...

I've managed to find 2 of the 4 bits of PRAWN suit I need, so I'm hoping there'll be at least two more pieces added somewhere else... I'm also hoping they add the modification station and the water machine soon, but the former might not be available until they've finished the deeper biomes (environments) I guess, since they might not want you going there just yet. Not without getting eatted anyway.

Any an all misspellings are henceforth blamed on the cat.

Apparently it's the kind of update the fanbase wanted so the company gived it to them :)

This weeks free game on Epic is pixely Kingdom New Lands: www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/kingdom-new-lands/home

Be brave, ruler, and fight to the bitter end,
lest these New Lands conquer you instead.

Kingdom is a minimalistic micro strategy game with modern retro aesthetics and an ambient soundtrack. Players take control of a monarch struggling to build their kingdom from nothing by exploring the world, recruit loyal subjects and defend from the nightly Greed attacks.

What lovely, pixelly pixels. May grab that one for my "later" library.

I've been getting a bit frustrated with Star Wars: Republic Commando recently. Even with my (slightly) improved WASD skills I still struggle to kill the enemies even though I have three squad members shooting with me. Every play results in either no more ammo or death and it's not like my shots are missing either. It feels like the worst moments from Halo 2 :(
So I've decided to abandon it in favour of another FPS from my library and I have now installed Bioshock which I bought the other week (I think they're on sale again now.) After a bit of awkwardness with the sound (apparently you have to "enable" Stereo Mixing in the Windows sound settings. :dunno:) it now runs properly and I've had a quick 15 minute play to confirm that I'm gonna like this one. So atmospheric and moody, and that style of visual storytelling reminds me a lot of Half Life 2. Hopefully it will continue to be that good.


EDIT: Wow! Bioshock is GOOOD! So damn creepy! All those voices in the distance teasing you before you get there (again, reminds me of Nihilanth in Half Life,) those disturbing little girls, that woman with the pram with the shadow cast on the wall and just the whole design of everything.
I hope it isn't one of those short games cos I could eat this up all day long!

I've just returned to the island of Vvardenfell after my recent Morrowind break. :woohoo:
I'd forgotten how many active quests I had. :whistle:
So I got to work and made some progress with the Thieves' Guild by sailing back to Hla Oad, provoking that lying Khajiit and taking his Dwemer artifacts. (His? Her? I still can never tell with those cat people. :S) This time I managed to take them without the other magic-wielding fellow seeing (and then killing) me by using a chameleon spell ring I picked up from ...erm... somewhere.
Then back in Balmora I cleared out the house of some dead guy. I went through the whole place picking up the valuable stuff, went upstairs, picked up some more goodies, opened the door to a bedroom and- There's this woman stood there! I thought she was gonna attack me. Or report me for looting. Or something! But instead she just seemed upset and told me that she'd watched the guy being murdered. One description later and I've got another killer to find and some Justice to hand out in the form of my axe. Anyone seen a red-headed Dunmer? No? Well, don't worry, I'll find him eventually. :)
Also I couldn't help but notice that the angular, unmodded trees of Morrowind reminded me of my awful hanging tree picture. If your painting looks like 20 year-old video games then you should probably start again. :lol:

I may now just have a quick go on the still brilliant Bioshock before bed!
Oh, and Steam keeps recommending half-price Dishonoured to me.

Been trying to map Below Zero while waiting for update. Been finding some updated things too, but sadly they're not scannable yet. Lots of wonderful new planty thingies. Also found that the thing that's been eating me isn't the thing I thought it was but another thing.

So many things to eat you! :)

I had a panic last night when Steam went down. :ohmy:
And when it finally let me log in my wallet said £0.00. :cry:
I quickly dashed onto Reddit to find everyone else complaining about it. *phew*
Stoopid server maintenance. All coins are now returned. :)

Still enjoying Bioshock but I wish there was more ammo around. Too many times am I having to attack machine-gun wielding enemies using only a spanner!
