Do you want to hear a comparison my vidya experience last week? The closest think is playing Verdun for the first time. You’re crawling in the No Man’s Land wearing a gas mask choking you and obscuring your sight, slowly making progress and stopping at the bottom of each shell crater, only to get caught by barbed wire right in front of the enemy trench and slowly bleed to death.
Yeah, that’s how it felt like. At least I had a sweet short trip back into the innocent past.
Sudden nostalgia attacks usually happen to me on Sunday afternoons when I sit over a cup of coffee. This time it was a game which definitely has nothing to do with typical Sunday mood.
Long time ago in my teen years, I spent many hours leading my ragtag army in a desperate struggle against the Fallen Lords and almost finished it. This time I spend just two hours playing the first three battles and slowly begin to realise that I’m too old for it. Not that I mind the outdated graphics, but crazy camera control and sluggish movement of my troops are a bit too much for me (at least the zombies have an excuse). Still, the story, the amazing soundtrack and voice acting… maybe if my backlog wasn’t insanely long, I’d spend more replaying Myth. Anyway, thanks for the memories.
This Week: We’re going to the stars and watch them die! That is, the sequel to Sunless Sea is to be released on Thursday. The main goal is to download it from Steam as soon as possible and write down my first impressions. Ideally, I should finish my Final Captain’s quest for immortality in SunSea first, but somehow I feel it’s not going to happen.
