Frivolous Fridays: Minecraft 360!

For today, a special video! My brother Isstvan82 is an old hand at Minecraft but, since I have a very underpowered PC (refurbished office gear circa 2005) I can't actually play it on my machine. So, I held out for the 360 version, and my first experience is documented here, courtesy of Isstvan, as a newcomer's first impressions of Minecraft.

I suspect since I'm not accustomed to WASD/Mouse controls (on any level) and have no preconceptions, I'm adapting better than Isstvan and AngeliqueDaemon would. I'll say this about the game: on paper it sounds like some kind of busywork simulator, but the fact is it's an open-world game with pretty much unlimited exploration options and an incredibly complex and rewarding item-crafting system. It is a timesink of the highest order, and pretty much can be whatever kind of game you want it to be. I'm having a lot of fun with it- it's swallowed two afternoons on me already - and if I could just get Isstvan away from the HD monitor I'd be playing it right now.

Also, everything you're heard about Creepers? Entirely true. Little bastards.

Ogre Battle 58: In Which Lich Trumps Necromancer

This is Yushis. I forgot, Mizal's the sister she's looking for, which is why she wants to join me. Naturally we say yes- I'll probably let her replace the generic Angel in the Slust/Fenril/Debonair/Rauny supergroup. But she's not required to liberate this stage, so it's time to put Warren on the road.

Rockman 2 Part 2: It's a Thing!

Sorry guys, this should've gotten posted here on Sunday. But here it is, and there's more coming this weekend!

Ogre Battle 57: Imagine How Effective He'd Be WITH Sullivan!

While finding a hidden treasure (A Snow Mantle, meh) Gilbert sees the enemy. Level 15, so most of us should be fine dealing with them. He's got to cut across their path to go to the next treasure, so we'll see what happens. We get word at one town of Mizal, the Angel we'll be looking to add to our rosters soon. Interestingly, despite the fact that she's an Angel, she's said to be from Valhalla. Things have gone from bad to Norse...

Ogre Battle 56: More Fun with Necromancy

...which is here in Antalia! We've got another character to recruit here, but luckily it's a simple thing. All will be revealed soon.

It's a reasonably small stage, with the wall around the city being open at the bottom. So it'll slow us down but not stop us- and I intend to hold onto my bonus Termites until later if I can.

Ogre Battle 55: The Avengers is Great. Go See It.

Nice statue, innit? Very... lifelike, wouldn't you say? Time to ring them bells!

And Saradin comes to life! He's been petrified for 20 years. I was going to say stoned for 20 years, but he's not The Dude, after all. He joins the party!
