A bunch of dad things have kept me off the computer so not much gaming going on – in fact I don’t think I’ve played since my last post. I did travel the other week and discovered that my Borderlands Save game is stored locally, not on the server. I didn’t feel like starting a new character so that didn’t work out.
My friend passed the old Heroes show to me. I remember watching some of it years ago, I thought I had watched a fair bit. Turns out I watched half of season one, and the first episode of two.
Been engrossed in that in my spare down time – that means less to talk about on here. Sorry :)
I was going to start with “I’m Sorry”, but then I realised that I do have bikes in the title, and I did warn you all that BBB might not just cover bytes so I shouldn’t be sorry.
But yes there has been a decided lack of game talk here the past few entries. I’m not really playing much at the moment. I still have Tomb Raider in the PS3 drive but mostly been watching recorded TV off the PlayTV. On the computer I’ve been messing about with iMovie and making videos for my YouTube channel.
I’ve been reading a bit as well, catching up on a few authors that have released new books.
I’m also trying to find a game to play on the Mac that I feel like sticking with. I tried Mechwarrior Tactics and it wasn’t bad, much more like playing the old tabletop. Another I tried is KSP, its a space rocket build and fly simulator that some guys at work are doing some crazy things with.
In summary, I’m just doing other things at the moment. And this blog is what I’m doing at the moment, so for a bit, you’re stuck with bike posts :)
Ok I’ve recently gone through and added a bunch of posts from my other blog into this blog. I have set the publish date to correspond so that they fit in properly. This has meant, like tonight as I finish off a couple more, my poor subscribers get messages of new posts that are really old. Tonight’s post was from 2007!
Sorry about that, there should only be about one more to go, I go riding “with” Charlie Boorman of Long Way Round fame (with Ewan McGregor).
WordPress tells me its twelve months since I registered this blog. While that’s not the first anniversary of this blog (it started in October the year before) it’s still a milestone.
BBB has seen some changes in that time. From a blog focused on WoW pretty exclusively, it has broadened somewhat with some bike stuff, some home stuff and random other things. It even became a travel blog for three weeks!
WoW has disappeared in that time and the expected rise of MWO didn’t occur. It’s actually turned in to a general gaming blog, covering all sorts of games. I know the change dramatically affected my already small readership. Not sure there is a big blogging community in MWO. Actually I never checked youtube… I still have some faithful readers, and I’m sure there are a few lurkers out there (hi!). I’m glad you find something of interest here :)
Odd things I’ve noticed… my post on the Razer Naga scores a lot of hits through Google searches of Naga reviews. Followed by this post on real life (I think the picture gets the hits actually) and then my car mechanic success story but that’s probably the picture too.
I’ve found a bunch of interesting people out there in the interwebs. I’ve reconnected with an RL friend too. Most of all I’ve found it a nice place to get my thoughts down. So thanks for everyone’s comments and thanks to all the readers out there.
And if Navi comments, I have to respond so I can stay ahead of her in the comment count on my blog than me (wave at Navi!)…. ;-P
Here’s something random I found..
Gizoogle.net A website that among other things, can translate webpages into gangsta speak. Here’s a sample from the Mechwarrior post I just made..
To mah crazy ass tha game was at its peak just before they removed knockdowns. From dat patch onwardz tha pimpers have steadily added complexitizzle without balizzle n’ have introduced bugs andz instabilitizzles tha fuck into partz of tha game dat was hittin dat shizzle fine. Even bugs dat should done been obvious from even a lil’ small-ass amount of play testin (the screw up wit missile damage when Artemis was introduced fo’ example) before bustin it on tha Beta servers…. one assumes they have they own internal test servers….. assumes…
ECM, by all accounts is straight-up messin wit tha game. It didn’t have ta be yo, but they’ve juiced it up a must have fo’ everyone, limitin yo’ mech chizzlez if you wanna have any real chizzle of bustin well up in a match. There is no reliable way fo’ big-ass mechs ta combat lil’ small-ass mechs without knockdowns (in tabletop you could even fall if you turned whilst hustlin, now you won’t fall if a mech charges tha fuck into you). They is havin a shitload of problems wit lag n’ rubber bandin (I remember mah duel wit a light I be thinkin I discussed up in another post).
Use in moderation :)
I’m sure you all have a spam inbox full of messages from casinos and other really great stuff (lol). Being a new blog I have only had a couple until I posted about the Razer Naga. That’s gotten me 10 spams so far, I wonder what got the robots going on that one. I especially like the one that said it was a great review about womens sports shoes and then linked to a casino!
I don’t have any interesting searches yet :(
My first version of this blog filled the tiny allocation from my service provider, so I’ve had to find somewhere else to put this. Sadly in the mess of resolving the previous problems I have lost most of the old posts. I realise that it was only about 20 entries, and only a few months, but there was a little bit of interesting stuff there.
So bear with me and this blogs plain start. I will work on some graphics to personalise the place up over the weekend.
