I haven't done this for a few years now; I'll be honest - I just forgot to sign in. I kind of want to use this blog area now as a sort of tracker in terms of the games I play, the TV shows I watch and to organise my thoughts on them. If you fancy chiming in on anything I've got to say, that's awesome and feel free to do so.
So anyway, I've mostly been playing Stronghold HD and Shift 2: Unleashed. I know, not exactly current games but I have so many unplayed steam games I can't justify getting new ones until I've got these out of the way.
I've pretty much completed Stronghold, only being thwarted by the final mission against the Wolf. I hate you Wolf. Actually no, I hate pitch ditches. If you've ever played Stronghold, this needs no explanation.
My main game at the moment then, while I rack my brains thinking about besieging the Wolf's castle, is Shift 2: Unleashed.
Let me first just say I'm a racing game addict. Racing games are the only games I can play on 'autopilot' - I can complete a whole race without realising. Needless to say I enjoy pretty much all racing games and this is no exception. Great gameplay, handling has been improved dramatically since Shift 1 and there's way more car customisation. Excellent stuff.
I've also just finished watching Marco Polo - a great little insight into Kublai Khan's court, even if a lot of the events are probably made up to make good TV. As well as that, I've just finished the first season of Black Sails - another great show (I love Pirates). Lastly, I've just made it to season 9 of SG-1 and Season 2 of SG:A.
