I spent my Saturday doing a little of this and that. Graev and I are almost finished with year 5 of Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7. The graphics have improved vastly since the previous year. I used to be able to tell what was supposed to be broken into pieces, but now everything is so glossy and pretty I just shoot my wand at everything hoping to break what needs to be wingardium leviosa’d. Despite gameplay and graphical improvements, I still prefer the Lego Star Wars games over the Lego HP and even Lego Batman; That’s not to say we won’t be getting the new Lego Batman/DC game coming out this summer.
Graev finished The Darkness 2 yesterday. That game is both loud and gruesome. I watched him use his darkness nasties to rip people’s spines out of their backsides and cause a ruckus. Obviously the overly violent games aren’t for me. Graev isn’t phased by them; Actually, he beat Darkness 2 twice in one week -and- earned a 1000/1000 achievement score. When I asked him if he felt he got his money’s worth out of the game he said he did, and then he went on to explain how “shooters” are often short games. Interesting to contrast that to the 109 hours he it took to finish Xenoblade Chronicles — he was almost in tears when he finished.
I’ve been making adjustments to the blog’s layout over the past few days. If something looks broken please let me know. I added author images to identify the author of a post at a glance. ‘Keen’ has the green shirt with a mouse (peripheral, not animal), and Graev has the mop of hair with the controller. These should fit to the left of the title. I’m struggling to figure out why Internet Explorer hates css floating. In IE the images are sitting on top of the title, but in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari it looks how it should.
Anyone know how to fix it? Thanks to @aletail on twitter it should be fixed.
I’m anxious for Diablo 3. I support the “I need a bridge to cross this chasm until GW2″ school of thought.
That was my Saturday.
