First Thoughts – The Division

Last night, I sat down for what I’m pretty sure is the first time this year to play some video games. Man, I can’t believe it’s been so long, life has been insane.

Anyway, my buddy over at Malformed Fork pre-ordered a copy of The Division for me, so last night we sat down to play it for a bit together. Unfortunately, the Ubisoft servers imploded almost immediately (which is not surprising; also I hate Ubisoft with the fire of a thousand suns).

By the time they came back up, I only got to play for about an hour before I was too sleepy to continue. But, from what I saw so far, the game should be pretty cool. I really liked the opening video sequence, what a neat story.

The graphics look pretty slick, and I enjoyed that character customization happens ‘in-game’. My agent looks a little like me, hehe.

The controls are pretty different from what I’m used to, so I keep crouching behind things that I want to jump over, or jumping on things that I want to crouch behind, but I think I should get used to that pretty quickly. Then in all my other games (when I finally get around to playing them) I’ll just look like an idiot jumping at walls haha.

I’m looking forward to playing a bit more of this game and I hope it’s awesome; so far it’s looking promising.

Big Pharma

Many of the games that I play are odd little ones that don’t really have a storyline; puzzle games, simulations, etc. One that I picked up recently is Big Pharma, and I really like it. Here’s the official trailer for it:

The first part of the game is a bit of a logistics puzzle; you need to build your assembly lines to be as space efficient as you can, and properly utilize your ports for importing and outputting. Floor space gets spendy and some of the machines don’t like to cooperate with each other, so it’s fun to try to make sure your supply doesn’t stop when one machine takes longer than another, and that you’re not wasting space.

I’m Playing All the Battlefield 4!

If you’ve been following my tweets, you’ll see quite a few mentions about me dying in Battlefield 4, and lamenting that how even though I said I wanted to make some Sims 4 videos, all I’ve been doing is playing Battlefield. This is still super true.

Shortly after we started I put up a video showing all my deaths in one round, and it’s just sad. The video was shot the first time I tried to record a BF4 match and I had a technical difficulty, but I managed to salvage some of the footage at least. Death Montages are funny at least, even if they feature me.

Since then, I’ve taken to mostly streaming my BF4 time on Twitch. I’ve got a bunch of buddies that play it, and they are my ‘cohosts’ on it. Mostly it’s my boyfriend Savage McNavage, Gant, Rookie, and Ben, but the other day I was joined by Leprekawn from Cult of the Malformed Fork.

All the playing has made me ever so slightly better at Battlefield 4; now I can sometimes manage to kill people! But I still die all the fricken time. I just don’t know how people manage to spot me so quickly.

Anywho, if you want to see my sad stats you can check out my Battlelog profile. I like to play on the ATR Gameres Mixed Mode server so if you ever want to join me for some strange reason, that’s a good place to look. I’ll probably also accept your random friend request if you send one, but remember that I suck, so don’t be a jerk to me; you had fair warning!
