There are two genre of games I am really invested in, RTS and fighting games.
I enjoy playing and spectating these since both are highly competetive genre's, I'm particularly fond of pro matches and tournament finals.
This week I dipped my toes into the SC2:HOTS campaign, I like it so far, though I'm probably being biased as a old time zerg player since the broodwar days. The story is alright I guess, it got alot of holes, but SC1 story wasn't that good either so it's what I was expecting. When people complain about story or plot in games, I wonder wether every story made needs to be a groundbreaking philosophical journey or deep character study. When it comes to plot holes, most stories have them, some more sever than others but they are there if you look hard enough. And games have never been known to have good writing or deep plots, and I think for the most part that is ok, If I want those things I'll read a good book instead. Don't get me wrong, if they can pull off a great story I'd welcome it, but its not something I'd expect from the games I play. SC2 is basically what it needs to be, lighthearted ridiculous sci-fi with some humorous references. Either way, watching the zerg evolve and rip things apart never gets old.
Also been practicing skullgirls now and then in the weekends, I'm not pro but I definitely put up a good fight. The thing is I recently stumbled over the SCR finals www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4oW5H…
And damn those combos are a lovable spectacle and pretty exciting to watch if you like these types of games. I really want to join in on a tourney at some point but as far as I know there aren't any hosted in Norway.
Oh yea, if anyone is a fellow skullgirls player do check out and support the indiegogo for squigly and Big band www.indiegogo.com/projects/kee…
Though lately most of my time has been spent on school, whish I could upload some of that stuff but most of it is too big to scan and I don't want to fill my account with badly taken photo's of my assignments. I have a few things I want to upload once they are finished but not sure where to go with them yet, we'll see.
Have a good one.
