This is a bit niche, but quite interesting to me.
I'm pretty bad at stealth-based games. They normally end up with a pile of bodies, and mine on top, while various enemies reload their guns in a circle around me. I almost lost patience with Hitman...I was really struggling to get to grips with the mentality behind it, and whenever I looked for help I would come across videos of people doing perfect runs, elegantly slipping through lines of sight, and getting massive scores. I was clearly useless...
I've just finished playing MASSIVE CHALICE, which is a strategy/tactical game from Double-Fine... I remember seeing the Kickstarter a while ago (I think a nudge was sent out to all backers of Planetary Annihilation). It's a lovely little game that I really enjoyed...the first single-player game in a long time to hold my attention to the end...it ticks a lot of boxes for me.
Hypothesis : People will grumble and complain about stuff, yet continue to do the stuff they are complaining about, rather than spend 30 seconds resolving the issue.
I'm reasonably pleased with last years results...I had a good year. My plan for next year is to build on that. I'm going to be a bit more focused, as I have 2 quite time-consuming activities to work on...
I, along with probably half the known world, got the "Reserve your Windows 10 upgrade" task bar icon last night.
So, scored fairly averagely last year. Time to step up and see if I can do any better in 2015.
I've already agreed some targets with my coach for 2015.
At the beginning of this year, I set myself 8 goals to aim to achieve...as the dread time of Christmas rapidly approaches, time to look back and see how I've done.
The Defence Grid 2 Kickstarter has just finished, and apparently I qualified for 3 Steam Keys! I quite clearly only need one.
DG2 is a classic tower defence game, though this one has a couple of muliplayer options. If you like tower defence, you'll like DG2. If you don't like tower defence, this probably won't change your mind.
So, speak up if you would like a key...
