Welcome to my new blog

Will this one end up as ignored as my last one? Probably, but what the heck. I need to try and get some use out of this webspace 🙂

Roll on the Easter holidays. Things are nuts in work at the moment, so I’m looking forward to the long weekend starting tomorrow. From a gaming point of view, I’ve recently rediscovered my love of Oblivion. I’d bought the Knights of the Nine expansion a while back, but when I got my new PC, it fell by the wayside. I just got the new expansion, The Shivering Isles, so I finally went back and finished Knights of the Nine and started the new one.

I’d forgotten just how engrossing the game can be. And while it looked pretty spectactular on my old PC it looks even better on my new one. Its a game where you really can spend time just wandering round enjoying the view.

Oblivion - Imperial City

I’ve also picked up Star Trek: Legacy. I know the reviews (and most of the player feedback) was bad, but I’m a sucker for anything with those two words on the box.

Its not great. The ship models are stunning to look at, but the lack of a locking camera viewpoint is a glaring omission. Plus the tendancy of your helmsman to start piloting the ship while you’re trying to steer it as well really causes you grief when you’re trying to do a strafing run on a starbase.

Saying that, it could be a lot worse. I picked it up cheap in the Play sale, and for the tenner I paid, I’d say its worth it. However, as a much-hyped, 40th anniversary, franchise re-launching game, its definitely not up to par.

Its a pity Bethesda didn’t throw as much hype at Tactical Assault on the DS. The Starfleet Command games have long been a personal favourite, and this cutdown version from the guys who made the original is great fun.
