Crysis, snoo and dead cars

I'm not very creative when it comes to blorg titles so that's the best you're getting. And I apologise Mike for turtally screwing up your recent formula with this here third post in the space of 2 days.

Woke up rather hearly today as some noisy buggers came round at half 8 to install wooden flooring doonstairs. From that point on I sat half dead watching tedious Sunday morning television, until 11 when I decided it was time for more Crysis.



I'll try my best to avoid any spoilerage, hactually, there will no spoilers seeing as the other Wombat won't have this game until Crimbo. I resumed on the level 'Relic' and worked my way slowly up to the part of the map marked... erm, no this isn't going to work. OK I'll continue in the same fashion as I did yesterday. I'm still enjoying the battles with the Koreans. I was standing there in cloak mode watching them go about their business, and noticed a nice little touch, a few times now I've seen them running towards a fence or similar obstacle which they proceed to jump over and land flat on their face. It's funny watching how confused they get when you mess with the different settings on the Nanosuit, switch to cloak mode to get that funny "what the crap?" tone of voice.

I'm also having much fun blowing up anything and everything, every red barrel must be shot, every large white tank as seen in the villages must have 'nades chucked at 'em, every one of the Korean's cars must have that little petrol tank shot and the same goes for the big trucks.





So far I think it's most wootsome, and the intro to the 'Assault' level is bloody ace. Still not had a chance to battle the haliens yet, but I know it's coming.



Yes, it's quite randomly snooing here in Brumingham, can't quite figure why, hactually the fact that it's cold may have something to do with it. I like driving in snoo, so I agreed to go and pick up my sis from her hoose about 6 miles away to bring her here for our Sunday meal. On the way there all the little lights on my dashboard seemed to get gradually darker and darker, and the wipers almost ground to a halt. I soon realised that the battery was nearing the end of it's life. I got to my sister's and left the engine running, turned all unnecessary things off and was left with just the wipers and my headlights. So I had 6 miles to drive with my extremely dim headlights and near dead wipers. We somehow managed it, but the end of the journey is a pitch black country road, my windscreen was frozen and clouded, and lack of headlights meant I couldn't see a thing. Somehow came out of that unscathed and now my car sits out there dead in a few inches of snoo. May be quite difficult getting to worm tomorrow.

Shout out to Chris, who could have been part of the Wombat, but instead decided to get a life and go to University.

I'm such a cunt for going to uni, I must catch up with my gaming career around crimbo; romantic evenings involving orange box and gmod yeah?

Chris said...

Am I allowed to say cunt here? Would spamflange be more appropriate?

Well it got through the censorydooder, I do prefer the words Twunt or Murt in this case though.

Yes, some Team Fortress 2 would be lovely. Though you'll have to join our group on Steam first.

Chris, you Irish Yakslapper, you should really try NC again, especially since nothing has changed execpt theres bugs where people have big chins. Not that im playing it mind, just memories of Noobs Anonymous are flowing back...

ntwrock said...

Ah, I get such a nice warm nostalgic feeling when thinking of Neocron now.

AcousticToad said...

That is your brain attempting to escape the confines of your skull in retaliation of the thought...

ntwrock said...

Aye :(

Chris said...

Being chased around the sewers by a spy with a nailgun for clearing out the clan appt. cupboards was probably my greatest NC memory. That and ganking Huntron so many times in the outzone that he quit the game.

ntwrock said...

Ack, making me want to blorg it large about our Neocron adventures. Wish I still had me old screenshots :(

AcousticToad said...

Huntron stole my gun, the git, Took me like 8 hours of killing crappy mutants to get a decent one too.

Last time I played (before Matt & I trialed it large) was the NC2 beta, started a psi monk in agressive, sold starting gear, bought basic spells and lots of those injection things that boost power, possibly called power boosters. Well anyway, Killed a few random AFK guys near the Butchees (Heh, Butt Cheese) in outland whatever, got some stuff from hacking their belts, then ventured out into the desert...

Bear in mind now that is is level 2 or 3, I went into one of those dodgy underground temple places with three star scorpions, 45min later I was two stars myself and around level 50 odd...Bloody scorpions move damn slow meaning as a monk, you basically run between the walls shooting them until they die, first kill gets you to like level 12...

Damn, I would like to play a trial again but dont want to give my card details to a dodgy 3rd party supplier, not to mention the website is still annoying with its "Attention Citizens - Highly dangerous criminals sighted within city limits", still, much better than the copbot that just spammed "Drop that weapon!"

Dammit, im going to download it now and ive just noticed this "comment" could have counted as a blog on its own...bugger, woot for ... though.
