Links to my reviews of games on Steam. Note: Two of these links are actually re. films; they are marked with an asterisk*. 7 Days to Die 99 Spirits “Had no idea what I was doing. Moved around the board, clicked some keys, an Asian woman spoke Japanese to me (which was not as helpful […]

Good King Wenceslas

This evening I went out the back door, to sit, write, and catch the last rays of the sun before it went down, as I am wont to do. However, my friendly magpies turned up, asking for a feed. In fact, I’m beginning to feel that they don’t see me as their life-long friend, but […]

Australian images (for Rust)

November 12, 2018

0

In the Rust game I’ve been playing – on a PVE (Player Versus Environment) server – I’ve built a “Heritage Hall”, in which to display pictures of some iconic Australian people, as well as some Australian art. This can be done in the game because there are wooden signs which you can attach to walls, […]

Redbeard’s images for Rust signs

November 12, 2018

I’ve been playing some Rust as of late on a PVE (Player Versus Environment) server. It’s been quite enjoyable. PVE servers are more of a building and resource farming experience, rather than a fighting situation. There are wooden signs which you can attach to walls. They are all made as a 2:1 width to height […]

Grand Snafu Auto: How Rockstar stuffed up Grand Theft Auto 5

March 25, 2018

0

Rockstar has just recently (March 2018) banned thousands of innocent Grand Theft Auto V players. Word amongst gamers is that Rockstar made some changes to their anti-cheating software, but in doing so they made some huge error which has resulted in the banning of massive numbers of non-cheating players. I bought “Grand Theft Auto V” […]

1000 games!

June 21, 2016

This morning I bought a couple of packs of games from Humble Bundle (a handy place to go if you want some cheap games). I added the games to my account on Steam (the gaming network), and then when I looked at my Steam profile I noticed that I had accumulated one thousand games on […]

Today I almost died

June 7, 2016

0

I had an interesting experience this afternoon (although “interesting” may not be the most appropriate word), as today I almost died. And no, it’s not a joke; it’s just what happened. Unfortunately most of us will inevitably die in a somewhat boring fashion, in an everyday style of occurrence, or even in banal circumstances; no […]

O Holy Night

Since it’s the Christmas season, I’ve been enjoying a few Christmas songs, and decided it would be a good idea to share the experience. Chrissie songs add a good feel to this time of year; probably a subconscious throwback to the annual Christmas shows which were performed in school when I was a kid. Whilst […]

Music: Ultravox – Vienna

July 9, 2015

0

An oldie, but a goodie. “Vienna” by Ultravox is a great song with a haunting ambiance. I’m not sure what the lyrics mean, but that’s never stopped me liking a song before. Released as a single in January 1981, it became a number one hit in Belgium, Ireland, and the Netherlands (no. 2 in the […]
