Ah, time to update this thing again. I had been meaning to do it since Xmas, but yeah, Skyrim happened.
First of all, I want to say what an awesome first Xmas I shared with my wife. We both truly spoilt each other rotten, and you can tell from her choices in presents for both my Birthday and Xmas, that she knows me like no-one else.
So what’s going on with me? Well, as I alluded to, myself and my wife have been heavily invested in the realm of Skyrim. She’s already finished the main quest and is now tackling the thieves guild, while I’m going the opposite way of placating my OCD by ticking off every quest I get before I carry on with that side of things.
The game is immense, though. It’s everything we’ve come to expect from a Bethesda RPG, but it’s improved tenfold and more accessible, though not to the point of dumbing down. Graphically it’s a huge step-up, although I wasn’t convinced of that at first, I booted up Oblivion and Fallout shortly after, and there’s a huge wealth of difference between them.
Away from that, I’ve made a start on my pile of shame. Starting with Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which has only served to frustrate me shitless thus far. I see little point in providing the player that amount of freedom in customising their character to suit them for their play-style, if they throw bosses at them that require one play-style. It defeats the object of the freedom you’re aiming to create.
However, I have been given some tips courtesy of Ben Parfitt at MCV.com via twitter, and I’m expecting to have another crack at it this weekend. So far, though, it feels like the game doesn’t want me to play it.
In between that, I’ve been caning the shit out of Super Street Fighter IV again along with, well, every fighter I can get my hands on. All thanks to the fight stick my awesome wife got me for Xmas.
TIMJ has also reopened its doors following a much-deserved Xmas break, and we’re now back in full swing with some awesome editorials, reviews and features this side of the internet. Personally I’ve had two pieces up already, both Mario related reviews here and here, and I’ve got another piece coming this very morning. In about 30 minutes in fact. One for Street Fighter fans, so please keep an eye out.
Lastly, I’ll just sign off by saying that my PS Vita preorder is in and is already nearly paid for, so as it stands I’ll be providing most of our early Vita coverage, starting with the all important hardware review. Hopefully it’s everything Sony say it is.
Anyway, that’s it for now, just a swifty to let you all know what’s going on.
