Well, the holidays are over and I’m still nowhere near finishing Skyrim. I did finally manage to get through the first Company of Heroes game, so that’s one down, eight to go. I was wondering how to start the year off when Activision reminded me about that Call of Duty Elite premium thingy a paid a fortune for.
When I purchased my premium membership pass for Activision’s Call of Duty Elite I questioned why I’d bothered. You see I’m not the best CoD player out there; sure I have my moments, but I not a stats hungry virtual tactician or anything like that. I hardly have the time to play the bloody game least have the time to study a load of old guff in the hope that it’ll gain me a positive kill/death ratio.
As you may already know, I’m loving Skyrim at the mo’. I’m right into it and playing it on the Xbox 360 and the PC.
A little while ago I came across this cover version of the in-game song “The Dragonborn Comes” which you’ll often here bards singing inside the various drinking holes scattered across the province of Skyrim. If you’ve not heard it, you can always approach the bard and request it (another reason why Skyrim is so awesome). Continue reading Skyrim: Fantastic “Dragonborn” song cover→
Game patches are, generally speaking, a good thing. Being human, we all make mistakes. At least when a mistake is made in a bit of game code, developers have the opportunity to fix things.
At the moment I’m patching Battlefield 3 on the very same laptop that I’m writing this text. I’ve already patched the game on my desktop. I say patched, but we are not talking about a couple of megabytes here. The patch for EA’s shooter weighs in at around 4GB. In little old NZ where nobody actually has any money to spare and internet data is closely monitored (as well as charged for at ridiculous rates), EA’s 4GB patch will eat into a considerable amount of the average Kiwi’s meager internet data limit.
Now I love a bit of Doctor Who. Granted it’s an acquired taste and yes, you probably shouldn’t bother taking another look at any old Who prior to Paul McGann’s TV movie in the 1990s.
A few years ago I had another go on my favorite Tom Baker story, Logopolis (which saw the be-scafed one transform into Tristram from All Creatures Great and Small), not good; some things are best left to nostalgic memories. The same goes for Terry Nation’s Blake’s Seven. Continue reading Doctor Who Christmas Special- mini prequel video→
