69: No Tutorial


Recently been on a bit of a hobby horse about games that force me to do a tutorial and then subsequently so little diversity that I end up moving onto the next game where the learning might actually be a challenge. I’m a clever cookie and if the “Esc” button doesn’t help me figure out in 1.5 seconds weather I should use “w” or “up arrow” to more forward then the game probably uses “Ctrl+q” to quaff potions.

Oh yeah, so “Marvel Hero's 2015” appears to let you co-op as soon as your hero has been selected. And though you will have to guess which hero you will probably like its fine you can change later (and 25level in any champ can aid all subsequent heroes) assuming the game is remotely enjoyable. Play it like an ARAM is probably the best advice to start with, forget about the loot drops and forget about min/maxing. You can do that later if you find you like the game.

Other than that I wouldn’t mind having another look at Dino:Orion Prelude, or whatever its new name is. Apparently it’s changed from an arena FPS tower defence to an F2P MMO. But since I haven’t playtested it I don’t intend to try it this weekend. Too much install wars for me lately. I think I spent most of the last Sojourn watching gymnastics and drinking rum. Not bad in itself but not quite the fun that I set out to achieve, and I didn’t end up sharing my fun rum either.

 
Also I was going to make this on Sunday afternoon but then I got a better offer and Friday was empty so…

WHEN: Friday 29th 4pm till saturday

WHERE: Wind Room

WHAT: What games are planned as major events? Marvel Heros 2015...

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink here

67 Pre-Crush

30th is the start date of the crush, it is also the final deadline for the RPGmaker competition. I dont really think it is worth playtesting my entry on sunday because I would have no time to impliment any gamebalancing. So ask me in another month how that went.

From now on I'll be on permenant call though that rarely interrupted sojourns it is mildly inconvenient to bail out on a game of LOL to run statistical analysis of the nir performance checks. Incidentally now I know why LOL has issues on connecting, its to do with the way QOS is run on this model of modem, but I have been too lazy record the settings and change over to a new one as yet.


WHEN: Sunday 29th July at 12am, Till midnight

WHERE: Wind room

WHAT: More Power Rangers Terrariah
Maybe Dark Souls if Tony is keen?
