    The Hood Building Group converted the Sims 2: Pet Stories neighbourhoods to the actual game! Time to increase the population of my neighbourhood even more. :smug:

    I have been playing Rebel Galaxy. A more modern and linear version of Freelancer is how I tend to describe it. I've played it before but never finished it. I might as well try now while achievement hunting.

    It's good for what it is but it could be more easily.

    I too have never finished Rebel Galaxy. It's fun, but does tend to get very repetitive and grindy as you try to upgrade your ship to be able to handle the increasingly difficult missions.

    I wish they would let you hire more than one mercenary to assist you as well. Maybe tie it to ship class or have a module or something that determines how many mercenaries you can have with you.

    I do like the combat though. It's fast, exciting, and the controls for moving and shooting work really well (at least on the Xbox One version, I don't know about the PC version). I don't really use my broadsides a lot though, focusing instead on using turrets and those auto-seeking missiles for my ordnance weapon.

    She is the first character that I’ve received for free in HotS.

    Ah, it looks like the aliens were performing experiments again. Or I need to check my game settings.



    EDIT: I'd messed up the Graphics Rules.sgr. I fixed it. Hopefully no more Pepto-Bismol overdoses.

    Tropico 4 is a lot easier than I remember the previous iterations being. These Tropicans just adore me. Maybe it's just because I'm playing the campaign mode, but I don't remember ever having all the factions satisfied at the same time. I started out with "I am a raw capitalist, pile of unfettered greed" and have built mines and logging camps aplenty, and even the environmentalists don't hate me. Rampant executions to maintain happiness among the survivors seems to have been dumbed out.

    I've been doing a bunch of quests in Runescape lately. Really fun.

    I picked up Piper and immediately found a bank in Boston with about 20 locked safes. She loves lockpicking so I had her full affinity and perk before I left that room and dismissed her on the spot.

    I'm still working on Nick though; he's taking a frustratingly long time to get full affinity. Does anyone know if his quest is tied to main-story progress?


    I also found 2.5 suits of X-01 power armor all in the same area of the map after having been stuck with T-45's the entire game. I grabbed them (well I had to leave one frame behind but stripped it of parts) and upgraded them to MK IV's (the highest my abilities allow) and now I feel like a steel demigod wandering the wasteland. It is awesome how your luck can change so drastically in this game; usually you're getting wasted by a random potshot but sometimes you get something awesome like X-01 suites. I did have to fight a tankbot that got the jump on me at close range to get the armor so I felt like I earned it.

    Well, somehow when I had Cait, she loved it when I lockpick everything.

    Hacking unowned computers? Lockpicking?

    It's just your friendly neighborhood Night Elven priestess warrior, Tyrande :p. (The Avatar is from Heroes of the Storm, though you only get it when you level Tyrande up to level 15 IIRC. I just nabbed this one from the wikia).

    He responds to hacking computers but not lockpicking. I have a mod installed that makes gaining affinity pretty easy and despite this, I've unlocked 5 to 10 computers with him in tow and haven't gotten his quest yet. I am beginning to think his quest might be blocked by a main storyline quest that I haven't done.

    I checked the Wikia. You need to do a main quest called "Dangerous Minds" before getting his. (I hope this doesn't spoil you.)

    Thanks. I've beaten the game a couple of times, there are no big spoilers you have to worry about for me. :D

    Yup, that would be it, too! I have not yet confronted Kellog. Time to ditch Valentine for the moment. Who should I pick up next?

    I found a half-hour video of me playing the Sims 2. I didn't realize FRAPS was running.

    Unfortunately, most of it's just me sitting on the main menu. :lol:

    New BioShock game in development.

    Not really sure how to feel about it. The magic of 1 was great. 2 was a passable enough game. Infinite was nice but didn't feel like BioShock.
