Well, I do attempt to play them properly, but messing about is so much easier and often more amusing. laugh.gif

At least I'm not that guy who spent like 7 years designing a completely perfect SimCity...


I thought that was really quite elegant. And he did write his dissertation or something like that using it, so it wasn't a "waste" of his time.
I guess as long as you're entertained by it, to each his own.

I'm in the play it properly camp too. Following that in Sim City 4 was nightmarish, Sim City 2000 and 3000 are a cake walk by comparrison. Memories of endlessly adjusting funding for individual police stations, fire stations etc abound. So sodding complex but managing to cut even the tiniest profit felt quite satisfying.
I showed that bastard hard game who was boss. Boss of making $126.74 dollars a month!

It was nicely done, for sure. Just seemed quite extreme to spend that long on it. I didn't know he used it for his dissertation though.

Heh, always played those games properly too. Well, up until
I was sucking then I'd unleash some therapeutic rage.

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles 2 again after not playing for months and I'd sort of forgotten two things:
1)Such a brilliant game series, I'm so sad there's no plans for an English version of VC3, but that's what happens when you (I) pirate I guess. Really really hoping for a new PS3 entry or at least PSVita, as the PS3 version is one of my favourite RPG's of all time. Top 3 fo' sho'

2) Fuck me the mission I stopped playing on is hard as nails. I will beat it without looking at a guide though!

That SimCity 3000 perfect city has a video on YouTube which the guy made. Took him three years to construct the final city, which is more than a little terrifying. My favourite part of the video is in the description, where it says this: "When asked about the fact that in his city, the average life of a citizen lasted only 50 years, he stated: "Health of the Sims was not a priority, relative to the main objective.""

Was playing a bit of Little Big Planet last night. After what seemed like an hour or two, my eyes were feeling a bit tired & i figured it was time for bed. I was assuming it was 1 or maybe 2am, but then I looked at my watch and it half five! It was light outside! ...Who stole those hours from me? Almost certainly a case of alien abduction going on there.

Just after I got a playstation 3 a few months back, I went into GAME to get a few titles that I'd missed out on and the salesman recommended Little Big Planet. Having never heard of it before that day I now play it more than any other game I own. My girlfriend has got really into it as well to the point where she doesnt think all video games are stupid and will happily give Fight Night Champion, or Resident Evil co-op a go too.

Playing a new mod for Shogun 2 Total War, and I'm getting drawn back into that game.
It's adjusted a number of things, many of them behind the scenes but the unit scale is much better now. A unit of Yari Ashigari which had 180 men before now has 500.

I'm alternating between that, Mount & Blade Warband, and Bad Company 2.

I only paid 7 for it, with box and cable and paper and everything. They're really cheap on eBay.
