Journey Through Middle Earth IX: Recalling Adventures Past

In the spirit of the anniversary remembrances, the ninth instalment of Journey Through Middle Earth contains views from some of the older areas. Future posts will concentrate on Rohan since I have managed to delete my older screenshots and it is not possible to produce high fidelity ones with Surface 3. [THE LORD OF THE RINGS…

Elite Dangerous: Hauler

Game of the Year: Destiny

Destiny has been around a while but it was still my most played game of the year. It received negative of critique but has improved significantly over the years. I do not have too much time to play games and Destiny is enjoyable as bite-sized chunks: a couple of crucible matches, a strike, a mission, or…

Runner Up of the Year: Elite Dangerous

I first tried Elite Dangerous when it was still in the game preview on Xbox One. I did a bit of exploring and tried combat missions and hauling but did not find it interesting enough to continue. Recently I got back to the game and even bought the Horizons expansion. I have not played a space sim since Independence…

Disappointment of the Year: Tom Clancy’s The Division

I was looking forward to Tom Clancy’s The Division, and the game felt good at first. Unfortunately, the gameplay soon became tedious with bullet sponge and a significant amount of grind required to play effectively, so I quit playing after finishing all the story missions. I returned to the game briefly to check the DLC, and…

Find of the Year: Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition was already released for Xbox One last year. I had not played Divinity series before and dismissed the game as an another Diablo clone. The game was on sale before Christmas, and my brother recommended it, so I decided to give it at try. The setting of the game is…

Journey Through Middle Earth VIII: War in Rohan

The power supply unit of my desktop PC broke down earlier this year and, instead of going through the trouble of installing a new one, I decided to switch entirely to my Surface 3 tablet. It cannot run LotRO well, and I am currently unable to take any fancy screenshots. Fortunately, I managed to finish Rohan…

You Will Be In Horizon

I was going to get the Forza Motorsport 6 when it was released last year. I was especially looking for the simulated puddles and based on the demo the rain effects were well implemented. However, only grinding the tracks did not feel that interesting and I ended up getting Forza Horizon 2 instead. Cruising around…

Destiny Screenshots II

One more post of Destiny screenshots. I took them back in the last year, but I have not been productive enough to put them out earlier. The Division is coming next week and I have lost interest in Destiny for the time being, so it is good to get them of the backlog. I am also planning…

LotRO on Surface 3 Round 2

After the mixed results of my first experiment in running Lord of the Rings Online on Surface 3, I decided to give another try. This time, I installed the game on a memory card and used a wireless Bluetooth mouse instead of a wired laser mouse. I used recommended settings for my system (Very Low)….
