homefront the revolution is a game with a lot of flaws but it's frustrating as you can see in it and the systems it offers the glimmer of the game it could have been that game would have been great, but homefront the reviling isn't that game
So Overwatch is the new big game from Blizzard the first title they've produced that wasn't a wow or starcraft spin off for some huge number of years, too busy counting their piles of money I guess.
It's terrific fun.
I suppose I should qualify that a bit :)
So I was going through my inbox and saw an update from one of the projects I backed the peachy printer a 100 dollar SLA (laser + resin) based 3d printer.
The title "Bad News" didn't bode well for the content of the update but it was far worse than I was expecting.
So thought I would go over some things I've been enjoying of late
Hitman: World of Assassinations
Latest version of the hitman franchise and now episodic with new "episodes" coming monthly which wasn't well communicated as the first time I played it I got to the end of the first playable area the paris fashion show and went "is that it where the hell is the rest of the game?"
There has been a spate of incidents where the various news outlets have someone flying a drone (insert stock picture of a dji phantom 2 here) within feet of an aircraft!
Unless they've suddenly stopped making aircraft out of aircraft grade aluminium and decided to start using paper a drone is not going to bring down a jet airliner. If it hits its props will snap and it will plummet out of the sky.
There have been a lot of great games popping up recently some big names others not so much and with a load more on the horizon I thought I'd do a little roundup before I forget.
I think of this as Firefly the game it's basically redneck elite. You fly about a colourful space universe trading mining shooting(either good/milita or bad/pirates) etc your way along upgrading your ship with bigger and better equipment then bigger and better ships all to a cowboy rock soundtrack.
I'm flying out to Boston tomorrow to go to PAX East. I normally go to PAX Prime which is closer to me (in Seattle) but this year I'm meeting Byrnie and Jen in Boston for PAX east. Boston being nicely equidistant from here and the UK with a relatively less arduous 6hr flight makes it more palatable.
1. Don't make any resolutions for 2015
Bugger! oh well maybe next year
So I'm out in New York for a week for a brief holiday meeting my parents halfway rather than them coming over to california for a visit.
I've been documenting my adventures thus far on the badger (http://www.rocket-propelled-badger.net) should you be interested.
Tomorrow evening I fly out to Seattle for Pax Prime and I'm really looking forward to it. Last year byrnie and myself attended PAX prime then flew to newzealand which was astonishingly tiring PAX by itself can be quite overwhelming add 13hr flight and crossing the dateline so you lose a day and it's not fun. We has planned for it and spent our first day in Auckland draining countless cups of coffee and generally looking bewildered at the time shift.
