Happy January everyone. It’s time for me to make vague promises and/or threats about the direction of this blog. I vaguely remember doing this soft of thing last year. In lieu of new years resolutions I will tell you what I plan to blog about this year.
First and foremost is my game queue which swelled up thanks to the STEAM sale:
- One or two more posts on Fallout 3: New Vegas
- Overlord 2
- Batman: Arkham Asylum (lots of people seem to love this game)
- Devil May Cry 4 (I don’t even know why I picked this one up but it looks entertaining)
- Mount & Blade Warband
- Amnesia: Dark Descent
- Mass Effect 3 (when it comes out)
- Elder Scrolls: Skyrim (when it comes out)
This ought to keep me busy and entertainment for a little while at least. Especially since I still have not canceled my WoW account and I’m like one level away from the Cataclysm content. But I’m already super excited for Mass Effect 2. I can’t wait to see how they are going to kill and resurrect Sheppard this time. I’m also pretty sure the game probably won’t have any RP/stat building elements this time around but screw that – I still want to play it.
Now for the other stuff:
I got a whole bunch of books for Christmas. It’s stuff by Vernor Vinge, Charlie Stross, Alastair Reynolds, Neil Gaiman, China Tom Miéville and others. I will most likely be reviewing these as I go.
- Movies and TV:
I really promise to watch The Walking Dead. It should be easy enough too – the season is only 6 episodes long. Other than that I have a stack of older SF movies that I want to watch and review – among them are classics such as (Equilibrium, Existenz, Boy and His Dog) and some are rather obscure (Time Crimes, Cronos, Fremat’s Room). Oh, and I got some awesome animu recommendations here. They are all waiting for me to sit down and watch them.
Probably more .net stuff and more Python stuff. Especially since I have been hacking a lot of my old perl scripts into python. I might toss some of the general use one up here or at maciak.org. Also, I still want to take a crack at that making games more complex than my tetris project. So there might be more py-game related posts.
I will be continuing the Learn LaTex cycle, but I don’t really have any concrete schedule in mind. I guess these posts will drop when I feel like doing LaTex stuff.
Also, since I will most likely be switching my crap-berry for an android phone, I will likely take a crack at droid development at some point this year.
How about you? Any good games you are planning to play in this new year? Any games or movies you are particularly looking forward to? Let me know in the comments.
Happy New Year!
