I was thinking the other day, shortly after realising that I still have a blog…. Ahem… That it’s interesting how certain parts of games just stay with you. Not the games themselves, though obviously they are a huge part of it, but certain levels, characters or areas. Sometimes it’s just one little part that elevates the whole from just good to truly great. So I figured I’d go over some of the bits that stuck in my head the most.
I’m hoping this’ll turn into a regular piece… Assuming I remember I have a blog more often.
Jump after the cut to see the first bit: No Mercy’s Elevator stand-off.
So, continuing from my previous piece here’s my upgrade diary; warning there will be swearing…
The components arrive, I check them and they look oh so shiny. Quick check that everything’s there and that there are no obvious damaged parts (not that anything save the GPU being in half would clue me in) and we’re ready to go.
I’ve recently gone through the process of upgrading my PC and as that involved a new motherboard and pretty much all the associated components too, it’s effectively ended up being a completely new build. I thought it’d be interesting to document my experiences as I went along, with the approximate time scales, to give you all an idea to how easy (or not) it is to build your own PC.
So, gaming is becoming really interesting at the moment. There’s been a sort of paradigm shift in the last few years, not only has the way we receive games changed for ever (online distribution…. Well, let’s be honest here: Steam) but now the types of popular gaming is shifting and I couldn’t be more excited. But is it all sunshine and lollipops?
So, it was with a skip in my heart and a deep foreboding in my stomach when I travelled down to Hammersmith to get some Hand-on time with the impending Dark Souls 2 at BandaiNamcoUk’s London office.
It was a surreal day, interspersed with 15 deaths…..
