My ritual extends well into the morning commute. It is the time when play some of my favourite music, listen to podcasts, read a newspaper or a chapter of a book.. or just look at the passing scenery that I already know by heart. Even though I'm surrounded by people, I still feel that the experience is all mine. It's not until I'm at my desk with my laptop booted and my cup filled with my favorite beverage that I'm willing to spare a thought to others.

Spec Ops: The Line starts with you fighting the insurgents, but the focus quickly moves to fighting an United States military unit that was assigned to evacuate Dubai, but they were cut off from communications due to the massive sandstorm that made the evacuation necessary in the first place. By the time the player reaches them, they've retreated back into the city and are maintaining martial law. Brutally. But they're just regular people who've had to endure extreme conditions for too long.

Cant agree with this any more. In some ways in Spec Ops your enemies can be viewed as the good guys.

Having the player character be the person in the spotlight is certainly common, but it doesn't need to be for the story to be interesting.

Let's use Brutal Legend as an example. The main character Eddie Riggs identifies himself as the roadie: The guy who gets things done, sure, but for the purpose of making someone else look as good as they can in the spotlight. And this is as true in the end of the game as it is in the beginning.

Fun fact: If you don't visit Therum until you're done with other plot-relevant planets, the game acknowledges that Liara's been trapped here the entire time. When you talk to her, she's delirious and you first need to convince her that you're not a hallucination.

Hah. That's awesome. I've never taken that route before!

I encountered a group of perfectly-legitimate-looking players, who must have been waiting for the local group event boss. I was in a helpful mood, so I took the liberty of kiting said boss to them. Unfortunately, they didn't do so well.

Hate those bots. I can't use the bear on my ranger with a good conscience anymore because of them.

Standard Planetside 2 background from their long-neglected iOS app. I guess I ought to pick a new background soon.

Raiden was 100% human in Metal Gear Solid 2, but the fan reaction was pretty brutal. So from Metal Gear Solid 4 and onwards, everything from the lower jaw down is artificial. He's half of a skull strapped into a fully cyborg body.

For gear gotten from the first zone as a random drop, this greatsword is ridiculously good-looking. I also like the bioluminescence, but the armor.. ugh. It might look okay on a human..

I have an odd issue with #windows8 : At some point, the system drive starts filling up, and whatever's using the space isn't visible with Windows Explorer or Disk Space Fan. Rebooting frees the space, though.

Strange behaviour. I will look into it next week in the office. There I might have a Win8 system

I'm trying to share video from #windows8  to #xbox360  . Media Center? Nope, doesn't have one. Windows Media Player? "No media devices found". Metro Video app? Nope, can only share to the other screen, and can't even play the video. Homegroup sharing? "No videos found".

In the end, I opted for the low-tech solution of just using a pen drive. Microsoft, heal thyself.

Yeah, I used TVersity with Windows 7, because it supports on-the-fly transcoding to a device-suitable format. But here both the Windows PC and the XBox can play the videos just fine.. on their own. It's not as if this is something that Microsoft doesn't explicitly support and market at every opportunity.

Kaksi suurta salia on varattu efektipläjäyksille ja muille suuren budjetin leffoille, ja neljässä pienemmässä salissa pyöritetään tarpeeksi pienemmänkin profiilin elokuvia.
