4May 13I'm not sure if anyone knows this however I have played over 70hrs on Age of Empires - yes the original one back in 1997. I was doing the final mission for the Babylon campaign where practically everyone (I think there are three groups) attacking the hell out of me. Granted I did start off with cool goodies and resources however what I don't have is a villager and a town centre. So it's a matter of time that my forces will be wiped out.
So my first task is to capture the enemy villager and man, the crap I have to do to get that 25hp sucker was nothing short than humorous. What I have to do is to create a priest, send him on a transport boat, which happens to be protected by eight warships (who happened to be bombarded by enemy triremes / warships as well), travel to enemy territory, park the boat, release the priest to target the enemy villager who happens to be in the process of making a guard tower.
Naturally killing the villager is a dumb thing to do so I need to damage the guard tower with my warships without destroying it, as it only scares the poor sucker away deep into enemy territory (thus ending my quest for survival). So as you can imagine, it's a delicate process of balancing from the enemy bombardment and damaging the guard tower.
So after a gruelling five to six seconds later, the villager got converted by my priest only for him to be the target of the enemy. Quickly forcing him to hop on the transport boat heading to my home base, my warships valiantly fought to their deaths. The priest and the converted villager made it safely back creating a town centre for my army to survive.
And the war lasted just over an hour of real time...all because of one villager.

6Apr 13Hello all.
Yes its been seven years since I've joined Gamespot; and man time flies when you are having fun aye. Well my sole purpose for joining Gamespot is for writing / reading player reviews and I must say its been an enjoyable ride thus far. To date, I have written 188 reviews that equates to playing 188 games (actually I have played more however didn't review them all yet). So that averages about 26 / 27 games completed each year.
And of course, with a new year equates to a new look. Looking back, my previous themes were The Longest Journey (using Wonkers as my avatar; well he's in Dreamfall actually), Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (using Louis Denonno as my avatar), Grotesque Tactics (using the Holy Avatar as my avatar) and now this, XIII, using Steve Rowland as my avatar. You like? Well, that water tower in the main banner is a little too intrusive but heck, what the hell.
I can easily use a well-known title as my theme however practically everyone does that so I chose these games. Why these games because they are all hold dear in my heart as not only they are great to play, these games gave me a surprise of how well they are made; other words, the underdogs of the computer games industry.
And here we are in the year 2013 what surprises held for us is anyone's guess. For me, I'm practically addicted to Kickstarter as not only they are releasing games I that wanted to play (as some AAA titles are just hopeless), you also get to choose your preferred tier instead of just getting a 'stock standard' product. Yes Im a sucker for these things however for all the projects I have backed, they all went successful so far. So I have backed six projects to date and they are:
Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey
Legends of Dawn
Torment: Tides of Numenera
Divinity: Original Sin
So guess what games I will be playing / reviewing this year...
Take care and game on everyone.
