Vroom Vroom…

I know that I haven’t posted anything of meaning in the last couple of weeks, or posted any stream archives in the last week and a half. All I can do is apologise for that, but I also want to talk about what will happen to the archives in future. Foxhole will no longer be archived on Youtube, purely because, in my opinion, there’s no storyline to it bar the setting and precursive history/events. I’m more than happy to keep the videos up on Twitch as long as the system allows me to, but in future, and in the batch of entries I’ll be putting up on here over the weekend, I’ll only be putting up the playthrough videos (i.e. the current playthrough of Vampire: The Masquerade, and Stonekeep). I’ll also be fooling around with the way the streams are put on the website as well; thinking of doing a page per game rather than a page per stream.

But, I wanted to explain why I’ve not been streaming at all since Monday. On Monday, my 2009 Razer Naga died (RIP), and I didn’t get a replacement until the following morning, and then I was experiencing computer issues, somehow getting conflicting drivers crashing the computer with the OS receiving unexpected input from what it thought was the old Naga. Long story short, it’s sorted now.

From Wednesday to Friday I was busy with lessons to pass my motorcycle test and get an ‘A’ or unrestricted licence. Twelve hours altogether, excluding the examination itself and the ride home. I was wary, purely because I didn’t think I was ready. My gear changes were¬†still somewhat jumpy, and my clutch control was sometimes a little off on tighter bends.

I passed, and am now waiting for the DVLA to renew my licence with the new entitlements and remove the restrictions on it. I was aware of the three minor marks that I had, and knew why I got them, but beyond that it was a good ride. I need to lean more, but that’s down to spending five years on a 125cc with tyres that feel like a knife’s edge (in a good way), going up to a 650cc with tyres twice as thick. My plan is to ride my CBR125 until the MOT and tax are due, renew the MOT so it has a full year’s worth, and use the interim to build up funds for a bigger motorcycle. I don’t see the point in transitioning straight away, because I don’t need the power that a larger bike has just yet.

That’s one of my resolutions for this year done. I’m easily on track to pass the other two, so long as I don’t relapse. I think this’ll be the first time since starting this blog that I actually meet and beat all my resolutions.

Feels good, man.

Twitch [26th Aug ’17] – Enjoy the Embrace (pt4)

There’s a reason I use GPS. That Museum mission was hell for navigation, and all because the last guard dropped both the key and his truncheon in the exact same place. The good news is, we unlocked Hollywood, allowing us to continue the investigation of the killer from Santa Monica, and we’ll soon see the enigmatic and charismatic Velvet Velour.

The next stream for VtM: Bloodlines will be taking place on Saturday 2nd September at 1830BST.

Twitch [24th Aug ’17] – Enjoy the Embrace (pt3)

This time on ‘Allan rages at a bossfight’ we meet Bishop Vick, a pain in the backside that is only killable after going through several corridors of zombies that not only hit like a truck when in numbers, but will also do their own feed animation and cause a good chunk of damage. But we get it done; CDC eat your heart out! Or… brains. Bad analogy.

Twitch [23rd Aug ’17] – Yet Moar Foxhole!

We moved onto Dog6 for this session as the map that was in place on Sulfur was a stalemate; the map had a huge river running in it with all bridges destroyed. We got into a good amount of combat, and I accidentally revealed key intel to the enemy. Turns out I didn’t learn the chat functions correctly and pressed TAB when the chat window wasn’t active. Oops. We also got mowed down by trucks (repeatedly), and I got a friendly-fire Hit and Run with a motorcycle. Not necessarily in that order.

The next stream for Foxhole will be taking place on Sunday 27th August at 1930BST.

Twitch [22nd Aug ’17] – Enjoy the Embrace (pt2)

After discovering the ancient art of opening doors, we finally make it through some of the fantastic content that VtM: Bloodlines has to offer! In this stream, we go through the Ocean Hotel quest, and fail entirely at combat afterward in the Warehouse after being sent there by Bertram Tung. Also, we discover family issues with the Voerman sisters.

The next streams for Bloodlines will be taking place on Thursday 24th August at 1800BST, then on Saturday 26th August at 1830BST.
