I have great ideas (or maybe they're not-so-great) that I can't wait to write about, I just haven't had the time to sit down and do so. As luck would have it though, my new job has me sitting at a computer 9+ hours a day so I'll be able to squeak in and get some writing done in my downtime.
Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to actually fly around and shoot stuff lately. I'd say it sucks because we have a war on, but I live in low-sec which makes wars utterly pointless. Instead of reds to shoot at, I see flashy reds instead. Whoopie. In high wars make some sense since you can't just go shooting people willy-nilly and in null you're fighting over space. Oh well. So, I log in, update my queues, read my mail, update my orders and that's it.
My trader/miner alt can fly a freighter now, so there's that. Also, my main (this character) is beefing up drone skills which I discovered were sorely lacking. Drones are still a bit confusing for me. I mean, I understand what they do and how to use them, I just... don't. When I do the limited amount of PVE I do, I often fly a Drake and I often forget to launch the drones and when I do launch them I often forget to scoop them back up. I wish the interface were a little better.
I'm not going to lie, the limited gaming time I have had lately has been spent playing GTA V. If you haven't played it, I can describe it as GTA IV but better. Normally I complain about the lack of new ideas and the endless swarm of sequels being pushed upon the gamer community, but if a sequel is incredibly well-done (and GTA V certainly is) I'm all for it.
Speaking of poorly-made sequels, the newest Madden game is the 25th(!!!) version of said franchise. I've played a couple from the last few years and they don't have any detectable difference to me. That does not a good sequel make. I also probably won't need a new NBA2K game for a while since the Jordan one was so much fun and the last one I played (last years, I believe) added a "feature" that really pissed me off. Said feature was having to.. do something, I never figured out what... in order to unlock players to play in the streetball mode with. What players, you might ask? Any of the ones anyone might give a shit about, from Lebron to John Wall. The most fun I had playing NBA2K11 was 2v2 or 3v3 with some buddies, and the game basically said "now you have to play a bunch of games in a mode you don't care about to be able to play the mode you do." Not cool, 2K Sports, not cool at all. Why do I need to earn a currency in my non-mmo game to unlock CORE GAME FEATURES?
Anyways, that's all I have right now. I promise the next post will be marginally better and marginally more EVE-related, but I have some non-EVE stuff I want to talk about too so be prepared.
