There’s been nothing new going on in my little area of EVE lately (mainly because I haven’t had the time to log on for any significant amount of time) so this post is mainly a short update on my online and gaming life.
I recently managed to get a (slightly) early copy of the trial version of the Spore Creature Creator and I’ve been spending a lot of my time creating weird and wonderful creatures. Some of which you can see below.
To kind of balance out me torrenting the leaked version, I pre-ordered the full version of the Spore Creature Creator while µTorrent was going to work. My other reasons behind this (of course, there had to be more) were that the trial version only features 25% of the creature parts, while the full version features all 200+ unique parts and saves £4.99 off the retail price of the full game if ordered from the EA website.
Onto a less gaming-centred topic, I recently started a photo blog for my random photos. So, if you’re interested in seeing some of my best (in my opinion) photos, head over to my personal photo blog and subscribe to the RSS feed if you’re that way inclined.
Last night, I finally managed to join a new corporation. I’m now a member of the Skies Tis Moiras Corporation, who have just recently become a member of the Xenotech Celestial Coalition.
Anyway, while transporting a couple ships to my new home-system (Warouh), I came across a huge amount of CONCORD ships flying around the Kaaputanen stargate in Niarja. I’d never seen so many ships in one place, let alone CONCORD ones. There must have been at least 60 of them, just sitting there doing whatever it was they were doing. There must have been a hell of a fight there for that many to turn up, the most I’d seen turn up at one time was about 10.
On a side note, I’ve been reading some of the news on the EVE site and it seems that tensions between the four empires are getting worse. Recently the Gallente Federation Navy and the Minmatar Republic Fleet begun a joint military exercise in Metropolis. Even though the Federation Senate and the Republic Parliament delayed the military exercise by a few days, they still went ahead. Much to the aggravation of the Caldari State and the Amarr Empire.
A spokesman for the said “It’s bad enough that they feel the need to rattle sabres. It’s alarming that they have the audacity to do it on the border of the State, but most of all, it’s disgusting that they feel they are able to conduct this exercise so soon after the atrocity at .”
Personally, I can’t wait to see how this plays out while we’re waiting for the Empyrean Age release.
Firstly, let me start off by saying I know this game has been out for a good few months (since February 23rd in fact). I’ve only just recently gotten a gaming-capable computer, so a lot of games are new to me. Right, onto the game.
Your character in Infernal is Ryan Lennox, a fallen angel who is trying to enjoy the good life on Earth when the agents of Etherlight, the heavenly corporation, come after him. After a shootout at a nightclub, Lennox meets up with the head of the Abyss, hell’s corporation, who makes him an offer that he can’t refuse. And just like that, the fallen angel is working for his former enemy, and that means you’ll have to go to locations around the world to figure out what Etherlight is up to. And you know that the “good guys” are up to no good, mainly through the game’s cryptic, conspiracy-laden introductory cutscene that shows Etherlight monks working on some type of strange weapon.
The Infernal demo is different to most demos I’ve played. That is, it doesn’t tell you anything about the story, or even the game itself. I know the story isn’t essential when playing a demo but it would have been nice to know why I’m shooting monks and why I’m using shuriken. At first you’re presented with a menu that looks like it would be at home in a skateboarding game (minus the guy with the gun). Click “New Game” and after a short loading screen you’re thrust into what looks like a monastery. Walk forward for about two seconds and you’re presented with your first cut-scene. Read More »
