|Score Victory in Multiplayer!|
My brother was in town for the weekend. We decided to get a few games of Civ V under our belt since our internet connections won’t allow us a game longer than 10 turns. I found new inspiration to knock out a few games after he left as well. Particularly fond of my first victory on Prince difficulty (I know, I’m lame) with Songhai. I drove for a Cultural Victory, but was ahead in Technology as well. I also had the second strongest military which led to some interesting stand offs against rivals. Victory could not be duplicated again with Russia.
|Shai (Monk) at start of Nightmare|
This week marked my adventuring party’s triumph over Normal difficulty in Diablo III. I’m really excited to take my Monk into Nightmare difficulty, but I haven’t had the opportunity yet. I’m learning to use the Auction House feature to my advantage, but I am also constantly vexed that it is unavailable due to maintenance. I’m still debating the possibility of a documented adventure in Hardcore, but I continue to put it off to play with friends in Softcore and fight the good fight on new characters. I am leveling all but Demon Hunter on Softcore at the moment.
|Dalziel at New Terra|
My brother was interested in checking out Terraria so I loaded it up and showed him around. He made his own character and messed around in the early stages of the game, building a shelter. We didn’t play too much, unfortunately. If we had two copies of the game I could see us really tearing it up, but as it stands my Terraria adventure is on indefinite hold and I am awaiting Starbound. Diablo III is simply too distracting.
I spent 6 hours over the weekend tearing through Shadow of the Colossus. I didn’t spend my usual obsessive amounts of time hunting down lizard tails, so other than a scattered sighting here and there, I managed to play through the game rather quickly. It was my intent to highlight the battles which each of the 16 colossi for a small audience. I love that game and I’m glad it’s back in my possession. It feels good to take down a colossus every now and then. It’s a little bit symbolic of the real world in that way.
