Got the day off to attend Emerald City Comic Con. I’m looking forward to it, and got paid just in time to purchase some goodies! Also meeting David Tennant and Billie Piper. A dream come true!
Been playing some iOS games. Picked up Evoland 2 which perked my interest, so I decided to play the first game since it was only $2. So far I’m impressed! I’m just disappointed I didn’t find out about this game sooner. Also playing through Dragon Quest I, so that’ll be fun.
I’ve been really irritated with Train Simulator recently. The new Woodhead route that I picked up a few days ago is bugged both in Quick Play and with some later scenarios. I’m not exactly sure what to do except wait and hope the developers patch it quickly. It’s frustrations like this that make me want to give up Train Simulator entirely and just stick to flight sims or Train Sim World (which is still in active development).
The one thing I love about Train Sim though is that it’s pick up and play. With my driving sims, I have to set up my wheel and pedals, and launch my Oculus…which isn’t too bad admittedly, but it can get in the way of other games. With my flight sims I have to set up my rudder pedals and joystick, and spend about an hour of real world procedures just to start a 737. I don’t have to do any of that with Train Simulator.
I’ve updated X-Plane 11 with some more addons. Mostly some airport scenery updates and I’m going to get HDMesh v4 installed (about 100GB download) for some extra realism. It’s large, but it’s not too bad if I compare with getting equivalent ortho textures, which could go in the TB range.
Did a start up and takeoff in a 737 this morning, didn’t do too well considering I’ve been out of practice for a few months, but I started it up eventually.
Played through Tekken earlier this morning. Didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. The customization options are cut and paste for each character, the roster isn’t as big, and the gameplay is just okay. I’m finding I prefer more the 2D fighters such as Blazblue or Guilty Gear for the good story, beautiful graphics, and excellent gameplay than I do the newer 3D fighters.
Also played some Gundam Breaker 3. Good hack-and-slash game with amazing customization elements. To be honest I was a bit skeptical since it wasn’t the “True” Gundam experience and just a Gunpla game, but it’s really, really good
