My Adventures as a Witcher

The Witcher 3 was enjoyable on all accounts

It has taken me an undocumented amount of hours (don’t have the steam version so I’m not sure exactly how many) over a seven week period but I have finally completed The Witcher 3! Towards the end of the story I ignored the side-quests as I was drawn into the story. Needless to say I wanted to find how the Witcher 3 closes the final chapters in Geralt’s story.

Witcher 3 - In Velen after story completion

The last chapters in the life of Geralt of Rivia. 

Who is Geralt of Rivia?

For those of you who aren’t familliar with Geralt of Rivia, he is the main protagonist in a franchise of games called the Witcher (based on a series of books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski). Unfortunately the translations of which vary dramatically in quality so I currently haven’t read them to save any disappointment. In the world created by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Overwatch – Incredible Character Design

I’m not normally that interested in Blizzard but Overwatch has my interest…

Or more accurately I haven’t since the days of playing Diablo 2 as a kid, though that was a long time ago (physically, not necessarily mentally!). For those of you who haven’t heard about Overwatch it is the latest game Blizzard have been developing and is currently entering the beta stage of development. As a quick overview it is going to be a team based FPS similar in style to the infamous hat simulator that is Team Fortress 2.

Adventures in Kerbal Space Program. A new hope…

Just reached 100 hours in my adventures in Kerbal Space Program!

I have just noticed I haven’t written a post since 0.25 was released a couple of weeks ago so this is long overdue.
There are quite a few big changes with 0.25 with the inclusion of the new career mode. The downside to having to watch my budget is trying to make my rockets economical as there have been a couple of occasions where my main rocket/ lander combo costs more than the money I make on the mission.

Adventures in Kerbal Space Program Part 3

Fly me to the moon

Since my last post on my Kerbal adventures I have started to climb the very steep learning curve that resembles space travel. I eventually managed to design a rocket that was capable of getting into orbit only to run out fuel.
At this point I thought trying to perform a spacewalk and attempting to push my little space craft back within the atmosphere but all I managed to achieve was to run out of fuel and have my astronaut and ship floating seperately around kerbal indefinitely.

Adventures with Kerbal Space Program part 2

Boldly going where no Kerbals have gone before

Continuing from my last post I am still pretty addicted to the space simulator Kerbal Space Program. Over the weekend i tried to make a point of understanding some of the terminology used and some of the basic concepts behind it. A lot of these terms come up right from the start but aren’t explained inside the game itself.

Basic Physics Terms

Some of these may be basic but it was good for me to re-cap them as it has been a long time since I studied physics.

Adventures with Kerbal Space Program

Introduction to Kerbal Space Program

This is one of those unusual games are quite unique to themselves. Still in beta and from what I understand is a fair way off completion it is a real gem. It is a space simulator where you are tasked with creating a space program for the planet Kerbal. The game is very well thought out in how it handles the physics of space,

Fatherhood: Entering the new realm!

All throughout our lives there will be points that help shape our lives and define who we are. Entering Fatherhood is one of those moments (as cheesy as that is).

There are several milestones that change your world in so many ways. Events like leaving school and finally becoming part of the adult world, gaining your own independence by learning to drive and getting your first job and becoming a parent are the most prominent in my mind.

The Clocks a Tickin’…

It has been a few months since my last post and being so busy has left me feeling that my site has been a little neglected. Between one thing and another I haven’t had a great deal of time to sit down and accomplish much of anything but it has certainly been a busy few months.

There has been weddings, a fair amount of travelling, long weeks at work but the most noteworthy of all that has happened is the birth of my daughter.
