I made my own characters compilation image months ago.
I’ve been asked many times.
Why do I play so many of them?
Why do I game-hop?
There are no hard rules stating that you’d have to just play some games or stick to one genre.
I have a short attention span and I get bored easily.
Once I’ve reached a certain goal in a game… whatever it may be for that particular game… I move on.
Life is too short to play too little games.
(Life is too short to play any game… for some)
But, you wouldn’t know the reasons for me gaming.
When you’ve walked in my shoes, will you be able to judge.
Anyway, always remember… everything in moderation.
UNLESS… something catches my fancy and I start getting a gaming addiction all over again… lol~ =X
I got to explore Beryl’s Folly, Gardenworks, Meluan’s Gate and The Refuge.
The music was getting more enchanting to listen to.
So.. I did a little research on who the composer was.
Turned out to be Daniel Sadowski.
Webbie: http://www.soundrama.com/ http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/city-steam-original-soundtrack/id530591374 What a talented young man!
It’s not always that I’d fall in love with nearly every music score of a game.
Sure, there are some awesome tracks from lots of games but usually, there’s only probably one or two that I like but that’s about it.
In fact, I don’t listen to any game soundtracks unless it’s being played in the game that I’m playing itself.
But this… woooo.. this is just… ok.. literally no words can describe the feeling.
It might not be tuned to everyone’s taste but I’m in love with the soundtrack!!
I’m getting all excited over a small thing! Ekkkk!!! >_<
Oh by the way, I tried the game on an Alienware M17x just now.
Turned on the game to full screen and maximum graphics settings…
AND a pair of gaming glasses.. can’t remember which brand it was..
But it has yellow lenses, made the screen look wider and the graphics seem more 3D and colour of the game was “corrected”.
The world was sooooo gorgeous!
I guess I have to take back my words on it not having great graphics…
It still looks pretty normal on my own pc though.
Browser based games?
First thought~ No way will I play ’em.
But I was… bored.
It’s the Alpha test to an MMORPG called City of Steam.
Based on a.. you can easily guess it.. Steampunk theme.
It makes use of Unity Web Player to “enhance” the graphics.
Considering it’s a browser-based game, the graphics are pretty impressive and it (so far) didn’t lag at all.
I love the music score.
Can’t believe I’m praising a game like this.
But credits have to be given when credit’s due.
I actually enjoyed the storyline and I’m only at level 7.
It takes a bit of practice to get used to getting the quests and since I went into fullscreen mode, I kept pressing Esc whenever I want to close my inventory and whatnot..
And I’m being bought out into the small browser mode again.
9 races to choose from (3 of which are unavailable during this alpha test).
4 classes – mainly, Arcanist, Gunner, Warder and Channeler.
Arcanist = Mage/Sorc
Gunner = Gunner (literally.. lol)
Warder = Pally
Channeler = Healer
Oh one more thing… it’s an instance-based game.. so no open-world concept except while in towns.
Haven’t tried to find out what the max number of peeps in a group can be formed for a party.
Not really something I’d play for long though.
Although I might like lots of its different positive aspects, I’m neither a fan of steampunk nor one that does not integrate “high end graphics”.
But.. I really really really love the background music.
Maybe that’s what attracted me to try the game.. after seeing the trailer.
Anyway, I’m going out.
It’s a Saturday and I ain’t gonna stay home today.
