King’s Personal Musing 2/6/13: Halo Nonsense, I, I, Ran Out of Topics I Suppose and more…

Knight

Haven’t seen this guy in a while…I muse about Halo nonsense, my life lately and other stuff.

My Life Musings…

It has been five days since I last posted. That wasn’t intentional. I’m. Well, I’m not doing so well right now. If I’m being honest, I’ve been cracking under the pressure for the past couple of days. I had my midterm today and it didn’t go well. At least, that’s my opinion. Some slight hope that I did better than I think I did, but…well yeah. Bad enough my self-confidence is at an all-time low here lately… I just. This term isn’t going better for some reason. I don’t know why. I wish I knew why. It just seems like my ability to test and to handle the stress of testing has pretty much shattered into tiny pieces. I can’t handle stress like I used to. Not that I handled stress all that well as it was but it was better than nothing. People are commenting that I look terrible and I probably do. I feel like a trainwreck. It’s probably something to do with Dad… I don’t know what to do about it right now but I’m going to see what I can do because if I keep going at this pace without changing something. What that is, I’m not sure. I’m just, really out of sorts right now. So yay. My life. Its not that terribly great at the moment. I’m not sure why I’m sharing it here other than this is my blog and its what’s on my mind. It does get better at some point, this whole life thing, right?

Gaming. What gaming have I done lately…not a whole heck of a lot. Mostly due to aforementioned midterm I mentioned. So, not much to say other than I dropped Darksiders from the queue after getting frustrated with the game too often. I guess it just wasn’t for me. I don’t know what the next game will be because life has been happening. I’ll let you know when I know…

Finally got around to working on the Portal 2 co-op video that I recorded with Gareth a little while back. This is one of a couple episodes we recorded at the same time. Unfortunately, my stupid mic would cut me off early due to me not holding the button down long enough, so I’m probably going to drop push-to-talk the next time we record. I’m a little bit annoyed it happened but there isn’t anything I can do about it. Still, I hope you enjoy listening to Gareth and I banter on as we play the Co-Op campaign…

Tech and Gaming News To Talk About…

The Witcher 3: Wild HuntTwo game releases I wanted to talk about briefly tonight. Age of Wonders 3 was announced as well as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Age of Wonders 3 will be the next game in the Triumph Studios’ medieval strategy series. It’s scheduled to launch later this fall on PC but the team stated they would only release it if it was complete. I’m looking forward to this game as I have enjoyed playing the Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic game with friends of mine. Sounds like they’re going to bring it onto a modern graphics engine and add in some new mechanics, but keep it very similar to games of old and that’s just fine with me. So, as long as they don’t screw it up, I’ll be happy. The Witcher 3 will be the last in the Witcher game series and for the first time, I’m really intrigued by this series. It promises to be an epic open-world with a new combat system, an advanced graphics engine and way more content than is healthy. I’m hoping they really do it right, because I’ve always wanted a Skyrim-like experience but with a better story and combat system. So far, The Witcher series hasn’t quite done enough for me to really pick up interest but hey, maybe this one might. So I’m really hopeful for this one. Cautiously optimistic, but hopeful.

I bemusedly noticed that the bloggers/people on the Interwebs were just a bit too excited when they all saw a leaked Steam database with apps containing Halos 1-3, Fez and more. Of course everyone went nuts over this news but I was a lot more skeptical about it. Of course, Microsoft announced later that there are no plans to release any Halo titles on the store. This was pretty obvious as Microsoft has shown no inclination of releasing their beloved franchise on anything but the Xbox 360. Why people suddenly thought this had changed all of the sudden, I will never know. I don’t know, I just felt this was incredibly silly and I wanted to point out how silly people were being about this. Halo 3+ is not coming to PC as long as Microsoft’s current attitude holds. It just isn’t happening.

Photos To See…

A little cloudy but who can complain. 🙂

Fishes and more fishes.

Audio of Note…

Some pretty good chiptunes beat I found on SoundCloud tonight.

I like this orchestral piece as well.

Cool Videos To Watch…

This game has me genuinely intrigued. That’s all I can really say right now but I’m going to be keeping a close eye on the game…

A new Simon’s Cat was just uploaded, take a look. I found it incredibly amusing because the cat back home does much the same thing…

That’s it for now, I hope to be in better shape next time I talk with you lovely readers, thanks for reading and until next time (which hopefully won’t be a 5 day wait again)…
