All About BigStik
Forgot this site existed. Haven't really been on it for the past few months. Whoops.
Lately, I've been getting more into PC gaming than console gaming. Mostly because the games are much cheaper to buy from Steam. And lately I've been playing stuff on Steam a hell of a lot. I picked up Bioshock which I never got around to finishing on the X360, and also got a few nice Indie games. Super Meat Boy is absolutely wonderful and everyone needs to get it. Braid is also a nice little game, but somewhat expensive and short. I also bought Portal 2 when it was very cheap after the Perpetual Testing Initiative patch, and it was very satisfying to beat. Also, I managed to score a Dota 2 beta key, though I still prefer to play a nice game of Heroes of Newerth over it, due to the horrendous lag and unit response delay as well as the constant presence of leavers. Team Fortress 2 is also a very good game to get, and because it's free there's really no reason not to. However, I don't have any good hats, which seriously detracts from my experience
And to top it all off, I discovered possibly the most wonderful multiplayer game I've played in a while - Super Monday Night Combat. It's like a mash-up of Dota and Team Fortress 2, with class based third person shooting combined harmoniously with tactical team-oriented gameplay. Two teams of five Pros (characters), chosen from a pool of 15, battle it out, escorting waves of friendly robots forward in an attempt to break down their turrets, push into their base and ultimately destroy the enemy team's Moneyball, which is, funnily enough, a giant ball of money. Every character is unique, and it's a really great change of pace from normal people-shooting and normal right-click-strategying. And it's completely free. You don't have to pay a cent, though the grind to unlock stuff is fairly slow and painful otherwise. If anyone wants to give the game a shot, I'd be glad to play with - account name TechnicalHiccup - as the usual pub players are pretty hopeless when it comes to teamwork. However, with lots of tests and learning and stuff, playtime has once again been cut to a bare minimum, which makes me a sad person.
Good luck, have bacon
I has Final Fantasy 13 now! Haven't really gotten around to playing it much, not even an hour into it yet. However, from the first impressions, I can tell that there will lots of nice explosions later in the game, and that eventually Snow could get slightly annoying. So far, all I've done is mash 'A' over and over, but even doing that looks awesome on screen.
...and I don't think I'll get around to playing it much within the next month or so, as the horror that is examination comes in and saps the joy out of my life whilst crushing my spare hours into oblivion. I haven't been studying as much as I would be proud of, and I've been playing HoN waaaay too much over the past few weeks, as well as burning my way through a whole heapload of other random games (Bejeweled 3, Zuma's Revenge) while avoiding what I really need to get around to doing some time soon. I'm probably completely screwed for the upcoming trials of terror, but at least it's worth a try pulling a couple of 'A's.
But for now, it's time to retreat into dark corners with piles of books, notes and past papers.
Haven't really bothered posting anything. Actually haven't been on the site for a while either. Pre-occupied by other things... it's the time of year for exams again. Big whoop.
Anyway, not too much has happened while I was gone, so I never really felt the need to update anything. I got and beat Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, but for the last several months I haven't been playing much apart from Heroes of Newerth... which I now feel reasonably experienced at. And it's now free to play, so if you were too lazy to buy it, now there is no excuse. :3
And now DotA 2 is around the corner! Both the inner Asian geek inside me and the actual me (Asian geek ._.) are screaming with joy. Pretty much all of my friends are looking forward to it. Sometimes it seems like half the internet is looking forward to it. And, from the limited amount of gameplay I've seen from the incredibly laggy live-stream for the competition currently running for it, DotA 2 does look like a very good game. Sure, it's probably almost the same as the game I've been playing for the last several months, but it's still nice to have a fresh lick of paint, some nice servers and a handful of gameplay tweaks. The only thing I'm worried about right now is the community. The DotA / HoN / LoL communities seem like an absolute bunch of egotistical retards. So this time I'm sticking close to friend as I delve into this game.
Life sucks sometimes, but then sometimes it stops sucking so much and becomes almost bearable. :3
