I always seem to forget about updating my LJ when I’m on weekends / vacation time. I guess I prefer updating from work so I can thusly avoid doing work. Go figure.
This weekend was spent largely on two things. One, War of the Monsters. OMGWEEEEE. Great game; I have issues with the camera (you basically have to hold down the ‘lock camera on enemy’ to get anywhere) but beyond that… giant monsters throwing cars at each other and stepping on people and climbing buildings, yo. It doesn’t get any better than that. Folks have pegged this game as a ‘sleeper hit’ but given the glowing praise it’s been getting (and a nice price tag) I suspect it’ll be upgraded to ‘real hit’ shortly.
The other thing was, of course, NWN. Penultima development and my biweekly Hodge Podge session. NWN refused to run on Jenny’s machine, dammit, so I had to exclude her from the campaign again… but beyond that things went pretty well.
I’m also working on a sekrit NWN project which I’m probably not going to release under my own name. I’m hoping it’s not a complete waste of time; for an idea I got at 1 AM which was gonna be a quick and fun tossoff module, it’s sure ballooned into a complicated scripting nightmare of henchman control code and plot variables. I guess we’ll see.
Hmm. How do you do one of those LJ-Cut thingies for friends-only? Anyone?
