I've been looking for a computer game that can capture the feel, but so far it's been a dirge. Very little that appeals to me and even less that's remotely recent.
However, there might be something of interest upcoming. I assume you've heard (at least in passing) of the Total War series. Apparently, there's now a Total War: Warhammer series in the making. It's so obvious, you wonder why it didn't happen before. But in a way, I'm glad it didn't. Now we have the capacity to deliver on the spectacle of those truly epic scale wars.
So my buddy and I decided to wage war at our local game store this afternoon. We both left work early to make it there by 3:15, since we had a hard deadline of 5:00 to stop play. He hadn't played in 10 years, and I haven't played ever.
I have a good friend who has been talking up Warhammer Fantasy for quite some time. I played Warhammer 40k a couple times awhile back (like, 15+ years ago) but never since. Warhammer Fantasy is similar to 40k in that its a tactical wargame with tons of miniatures requiring movement around a massive terrain map. I... uhh... dont know much beyond that. With that being said, my buddy has been talking it up and I've watched enough videos to check it out.
So apparently the first post to this site was made 8 years and 4 days ago. I know that we have all mostly parted ways, but its still amazing to me that this has been 8 years. What a long and strange journey it has been.
Let's have a little discussion. With WoW's latest patch, they have released a WoW Token, which can be purchased for $20 (in the US anyway) which allows you to get a month of game time. This can be tossed up on the AH and sold, though you are not in control of the cost that it sells for.... right now on US servers, this is running somewhere between 23k and 25k gold. (Fun fact: this price is very different across the different continental servers, EUs is at ~40k, Chinas is over 300k last I read)
Y’know sometimes how life gets you down? It can either be nothing specific you can pin your finger on, or alternatively it can be defined moments – either one or multiples accumulating, that cause the feeling. The past couple of days are two of those days.
So last night I went out for an evening meal with some colleagues from work, but it was over pretty quickly and I got home in time to play some more GTA V on the PC.
I really must find out what the key is for screenshots.
Last Thursday was my eldest sons birthday and so I asked him if he wanted anything special for me to cook on Saturday. He said he wanted me to "make that pie you make". As I have been known to make a number of different ones it took a few minutes to determine which particular pie he was asking for - I call it my Picnic Pie because in my (apparently solo) view its way nicer cold. I then had to decide what I was going to do with it and opted for Tuscan roast potatoes in white wine, honey glazed carrots and fried shredded cabbage with bacon, then probably some gravy.
So as Tanitha may soon shut down TBT and we may all lose contact with each other, I thought it might be nice to do an update of things since…well whenever. Therefore it’s a bit long.
HOT NEWS - We stay open 27/7, but I'll leave my post as it is as it took me 2 days to write it :)
I'll try to post more, and more frequently.
I feel like breaking into a Weather Girls rendition of "It's raining epics!", but that would be an utter and sincere lie. Not the bit about me wanting to break into song, but the bit about it actually raining epics. I have now done two full clears of all the raids available to me, mainly Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry.
As you can see, my Enhancement Shaman is normally in the top 10 for damage and in BRF I am generally in the top 5, mainly because you know, Flame Shock, a splash of Lava Lash and hotkey four generate a lot of hatred and some pretty flame patterns all across the screen.
