Hey all, it's been a long time since anything was posted here and I dearly miss both posting and reading! I have to admit, ever since I switched jobs over two years ago, I can't post here during the work day so I've been terrible about getting on. But enough of excuses! What has everybody been up to?
I remember Stigg introducing that one aeons ago. By now, there's been three books published in German.
The artist started a kickstarter for an English version, with worldwide shipping.

I've had a few days to play with my new toy now, and everything that bothered me with the Surface 2 is gone. I don't have as much space on the Note 10.1 but I don't lack for it either.
I've been testing out a drawing app called LayerPaint HD, and it might just be the best drawing app for Android. It might not be as versatile as Clover Paint, but it's not as overwhelming either.
I took a photo of a crude sketch I made with a real pencil on paper and imported it into LayerPaint HD. I then reduced the opacity to about 20% and created a new layer on top where I'm drawing the lines anew.
A little while back I celebrated my 40th birthday, and among the presents I got was a fair amount of cash. I tok a few days to figure out what I wanted to use it on, and decided I wanted a new tablet. I had a rather middling tablet from before, and wanted something better. Unfortunately you can't get much of a tablet without paying exorbitant prices... If you buy from the stores, that is.
So I spent a little time looking through Finn.no which is the largest online secondhand market in Norway. I quickly found something that looked promising, a Microsoft Surface 2. I researched it's speccs and it seemed to be a decent machine. Three days later it arrived in the mail, along with a Touch 2 keyboard cover.
The first thing that hit me was the absolutely gorgeous screen, and how well it responded to touch commands. Unlike my old tablet (a DMtech, some cheap chinese product) I had much better presicion and could hit small icons without having to zoom in first. The sound was excellent too, and it could stream Netflix on without a hitch or lag.
Over the next few days I put the tablet through a lot of games and browsing and experimented with all the things I could think off. So what do I think of it?
Some small part of me wishes I knew what was going on there. Another part of me is glad I don't.
Is it a melon?
Is it jello?
No, it's JELLON!
I never played a Divinity game before. I know quite a few of them came and went over the years but they always looked like second rate games to me and I never bothered trying them. The latest game in the series (apparently a prequel) was released recently following a successful kickstarter campaign.
I stumbled upon a review yesterday and the more I read about it the more it seemed like it was a perfect game for me. I bought it on GOG without thinking more. I booted the game late this morning and the day passed by at an alarmingly fast rate. I can safely say that it's the most fun I've had with a new game since Skyrim came out almost 3 years ago.
After blowing off Justin today (just kidding, I was in class until 1630), I headed up to a weekly 'game night' hosted by a local game store, appropriately called 'Games and Stuff'. The past few times I'd gone in there, a worker had mentioned he hosted the game night and invited me to join. Finally, a coworker went to last weeks and had a good time, so I headed up.
