State of play – short short version

February 28, 2010 Comments off

Star Trek Online: Love the episodes and great combat. Nuke Memory Alpha. Reached Commander. I want to build my own outposts.

Champions Online: Taking a break.

City of Villains: Playing a new dominator (earth/earth) and some old alts. Very nice to replay some old arcs and some really nice arcs in Mission Architect also. Good fun, but not many people on server.

Into Galactica

At casa Sente, there is no TV. Well, a TV screen yes, but no TV receiver – no TV broadcasts are seen on that screen. There has not been much watching of TV in the past few years and last autumn the decision was made to get rid of any TV receiver (and thus the obligation to pay the Swedish TV license fee).

That does not exclude watching good TV series though, from time to time a good show can be bought on DVD or Blu-ray. Planet Earth is great BBC documentary that I watched before Xmas. I have also picked up a few SciFi TV series (complete) over the years, including Babylon 5 (my favourite), Farscape and Firefly.

My recent acqusition though has been the first season of Battlestar Galactica on Blu-ray. I have never seen the series before, neither the original nor the re-make. But it was highly recommended by some in-game friends from City of Villains/Heroes, so when a saw a package with the show at the shelf of the local Mediamarkt, I decided to pick it up.

So far I have seen two episodes and it is a good start indeed, looks promising. Will try to avoid googling on the subject though, since I do not want to run into any spoilers.

Pew-pew practice

Back home for the weekend and it was time for a bit of adventuring in space and Star Trek Online. Since the game has been released for real now also I went and picked up the box I had pre-ordered. There was only one choice available from the store, an edition with a T-shirt, some post cards and a map and some in-game items – a gun and some kind of uniform, I think.

Most of the content I have played through so far has been quite enjoyable, even the patrol missions, which sometimes are a bit light on the story side. The story focused missions have been pretty good though and I do like that there is a thread going through some of these missions with various plots orchesterated by ambassador B’Vat.
