happy

I am geekier than you. Or not. I can't tell.

I am quite excited about this. New M-rated RPG from the makers of Planescape: Torment? Yes please! I'm a little disappointed they are making it isometric - I've never been a fan of that style and it's one of the things that put me off Path of Exile. However, both Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment were in this style and I got used to it eventually. The only reason I didn't finish P:T is that I got pissed off with the crappy little square in the middle of my screen making it impossible to see anything properly (a product of it being developed in Ye Graphics Limited Olden Tymes), and the mod I installed to improve the resolution kept crashing the game. Baldur's Gate wasn't so bad but P:T is darker - literally - and that made it much harder to see.

I am assuming there will be at least a nod to improved graphics in Eternity - I think I can cope with isometric if the screen resolution is good enough to let me see detail even if it's dark. But yeah, I supported them. I'll be getting a copy of this when it comes out, which by then will be a surprise because I'll have forgotten I already paid for it. Neato.

Gosh. Another almost-rant, right there. Didn't mean to, it just happened.

I have had an idea for another Dorky Project. *sigh* How many Dorky Projects does one person need when they still haven't finished their degree? I did finish my DA metagame though. I have the perfect save (IMO) to take forward into the next one, ranty mage-supporting that will probably get me in trouble and all.

Our bedroom is noticeably warmer since the double glazing went in. I'm sweating at night again. Why oh why doesn't my brain tell me to chuck the covers off? It works for everyone else, but I just carry on sleeping, with the blankets pulled up to my chin, creating my own personal pool of sweat. WTF brain?

PS Have a thing: Gangnam Style as social commentary. Interesting.
