On the Border . . . lands

So big. So angry. So dead.

If you recognize that quote, you know where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing. And what I’ve been doing is playing computer games.

It’s not all I’ve been doing, but it has taken up a lion’s share of my time. And the rest . . . well, for the rest you can go to SEP, because everything else I’ve worked on has been RPG related.

But let’s get back to the quote. That’s from Borderlands, which I picked up during the Steam Summer Sale (oh, how that sale hurt my bank account!). I’m loving it. So much fun. It’s about the right level of challenge for my very limited ability, and it’s got a kind of “Loony Tunes” violence thing happening. It’s oh so bloody, but not quite serious. Wile E. Coyote would fit in perfectly in this setting.

And it is actually a very cool setting. Now, for me, nothing is going to touch the post-apocalyptic western that is Fallout: New Vegas. I loves me FNV. Borderlands has got that, but it’s also got a whole lot of insanity, like a part of the planet that is a massive garbage dump, and people live in this garbage dump.

Yes, things will be quiet here as I spend the time I am not working on RPGs virtually shooting things in the face. I also picked up Borderlands 2, Mass Effect, and the Bioshock trilogy. Lots of SF action and adventure awaits me in the virtual world.

    That’s very cool. Were I to run an “emulation” of a game, though, I’d be starting with Fallout: New Vegas. Borderlands is fun, but I’ve never been able to get that gonzo NextWAVE vibe in a game.
