SYWBAA SSL Update LEGO Halo Decals Gaming Nolan North Shop
(insert more apologies/excuses for slowness here). You may have noticed I've posted quite a few updates! - In the Halo LEGO section, check out the UNSC Forces page for some of my new Halo figs (at the top)! - New LEGO minifigs based on the characters of Firefly/Serenity! - In the Star Wars LEGO section, some new minifigs from my old fan fictions. - In the Assassin's Creed LEGO section, a new creation based on the battle between Altair and Robert de Sable! - Naturally, lots of new stuff in the decal shop! Check the Sci-Fi, Space, Dark vs. Light, and Historic sections. I still haven't gotten a new shopping cart system up and running, so I decided to just add the new stuff into the existing system for now. Enjoy! By the way, I just thought I'd throw this out there in order to support a great new game: Sins of a Solar Empire is the best strategy game I've played in years, and definitely the best sci-fi strategy game I've ever played. It's been a while since I've bought an RTS that I actually enjoyed the gameplay of so much that I would play skirmishes in single player with no storyline to drive me on. And since Sins of a Solar Empire has no storyline mode anyway, that's necessary. I admit I might have liked a story mode, but it's not necessary in a game with such innovative and large-scale gameplay. Definitely worth a look. While I'm on the subject of games I'm currently playing, here's something ironic: I recently bought two new video cards (a pair of 512MB nVidia GeForce 8800GT cards to run in SLI) and a new video game at the same time... only the game that I bought (Fallout: Tactics) is pretty darn old (2001) and does not actually require a video card at all. Heh. The cards work great though, and I love the game too. There's something graet about older games that new games just can't replicate, and Fallout: Tactics has it. For one thing, it's highly customizable. I love being able to build my whole party from scratch. Well, okay, so you're only supposed to be able to create your main character and then hire party members as you go. But I couldn't settle for that, so I modded the game a bit so that I could recruit my own custom characters (based on the characters of G4M3: Shattered Reality, of course, since it fits the post-apocalyptic setting the best of anything I've written). I did the same thing with Neverwinter Nights 2 recently, using a mod called "Universal Companions" or something. See, that's what I really love about PC gaming: if you want to play the game differently than the game designers intended, you can. You can modify the game and play it however you like. Ah, the wonders of PC gaming... This is why I still haven't bought a new Xbox game since Dark Messiah: Might & Magic: Elements.
