Wordy title notwithstanding,just an update for the sake of updating.
I planned two months ago to begin a series of articles based on the merit of revisiting some of the top quality Iso camera games of yesteryear,beginning with Diablo II.That was progressing along pretty well.....until I got a number translation projects in the middle of writing.Needless to say,due to getting paid,hunting down people to get paid,and my general abilities of procrastination,it remains half done.However,the plan is to finish it as soon as I get the time,so hopefully that will see the light of day in July.Subsequent articles will be written based on when I get the opportunity to play a few more.While some of them are very memorable,I don't trust my thoughts/memories from as much as a decade ago to make for very good writing.
Contrary to my lack of previous content,I've written up a review for Terraria,a little gem that can be purchased via Steam for ten Brad Dollars.Needless to say,if you were on the fence about buying it,I strongly suggest picking it up.It's a hell of a lot more fun and enjoyable than four cups of espresso(though depending on the roast,the margin might be debatable).I've put about ten hours into it at this point,and at this point I feel pretty comfortable with how the game handles,the best ways to plot out my spelunking endeavors,etc.I even went and built a few houses and a base of operations near a massive cavern as well as what seems to be a dungeon full of baddies.I wouldn't be against trying the game's multiplayer function out,so if you're looking for someone to play Legos with online,send me a friend request.Steam name's Jaredinho.One Hint:Don't use hints.Part of the thrill of the game is learning the ins and outs as you go along,and that sense of discovery and achievement is blunted if you go and look up some FAQ.A bit of trepidation and fear of the unknown is in this case a positive.
Celebrated my 24th on the 13th by......doing not much of anything.That being said,it was kinda nice,slowing down for a bit,getting away from distractions.
And that's it.If you know anyone looking for a freelance writer,translator,or localization,send 'em my way. ;-)
