Recent Updates

Time to update the front page of the website again after a break of a few months. As many of you heard on the Discord or the Livestream, our son William was born on the same day as my birthday in early September. Taking care of a newborn baby has limited the amount of time available for gaming stuff but there are a few updates on the website to relate. I've been running a Civ4 game on Livestream named William's Cultural Challenge in honor of our son and there's a short written report located here now that the game has concluded. This was a nice relaxing game and I was quite pleased with how it turned out. Elsewhere, I did a playthrough of the Barbarian class for Rogue Legacy 2 which can be found here. I already thought that the Barbarian was one of the game's best classes and this experience pushed it even further up my internal tier list. I also completed the playthrough of my Hydra Sorceress for Diablo 2 Resurrected, if not exactly in the way that I intended, and I've been recording a good number of videos for the current Set 7.5 of Teamfight Tactics which are compiled at this YouTube playlist. I'm hoping to get back to work on the travel pictures from this summer's trip to Hawaii but we'll see how much free time the baby gives us.

I have a few more updates to mention on the front page as we count down the final remaining days before the baby arrives. The most recent turn-based strategy game to be featured on Livestream was a Master of Orion game with the Meklars which I've written up into a short report here. This one had an utterly bizarre map and it was a short enough MOO game that I started another one with the Sakkra that's currently in-progress. In the Teamfight Tactics realm, Set Seven is about to conclude and I've written up my usual retrospective with some thoughts. This set was mostly fun to play despite some truly horrible balancing decisions on the part of the development team. I found myself getting bit by the Diablo bug again and went back to continue my Hydra Sorceress; here's the report for Nightmare difficulty. I'd like to continue through Hell difficulty and then I have some more ideas for additional characters afterwards if I can find the time. Finally, I'm slowly working through the pictures for our Hawaii trip under the Travel section of the website. The first part is finished at this point and I'll try to keep adding the other parts as I find time to write. Things are going to get a bit crazy with a little one about to arrive so we'll see what happens!

Time for another belated update to the front page of the website. I've probably spent the most time in the past few months creating videos for Set Seven of Teamfight Tactics; they don't get many views or comments but you can continue to see the video playlist here. We're getting close to the end of the set at this point and I'll have to put together my normal retrospective article in a few weeks. I've also continued to run lots of characters for Rogue Legacy 2 and I've begun the Class Legacy series for the new game. Thus far I've played through the first three difficulty levels with the Knight, the Mage, and the Ranger classes; their reports can all be reached from the main Rogue Legacy 2 page located here. In the turn-based strategy field, I earlier played through a Civ4 game with Mansa Musa titled Just Win Baby! which I don't think I ever linked from the front page previously. More recently, I did another game of Humankind for the Civ Fridays series named the RNGesus Campaign which I've also written up for the website at this location.

In non-gaming news, we went on a vacation to Hawaii for two weeks and I'm about to begin writing up the trip for the website. That will appear under the Travel section in time under this link; it doesn't lead anywhere at the moment but should have at least the stub of a page within a few days. We had an amazing time and there are lots of pictures to share from our time spent relaxing on the beaches, hiking on top of volcanos, and snorkeling/scuba diving under the water. Finally and most importantly, we are happy to annouce that we're expecting the birth of our first child about a month from now at the beginning of September. It's an exciting time and that will likely mean fewer website content for a while but we really appreciate all of the support that we've been getting from the Livestream viewers today. Thank you all for your kind words and congratulations!

Quick check-in here with some of the recent updates to the website. I've been spending a lot of gaming time with Set Seven of Teamfight Tactics which has been solid if not spectacular thus far. I'm recording videos for that game which have been posted to YouTube at this linked playlist. Here on this website, the other main project that I've been working on is new content for Rogue Legacy 2. I spent oodles of time playing the original Rogue Legacy and I've created a new section on the website for the excellent sequel. So far I've written a basic introductory article for the game and started reprising my Class Legacy series that runs through the full game while restricted to a single class. I started out with the Knight to get a feel for how this would work in Rogue Legacy 2 and it's been a lot of fun thus far. Some of the other classes will be much harder to use than the Knight and I'm both looking forward to and dreading the chance to play them!

Elsewhere, I ran a Master of Orion game on Twitch Livestream featuring the Darloks which I then summarized with a short written report here. It was a fairly challenging game that highlighted both the strengths and weaknesses of the Darloks and their spying stuff. I also re-wrote the partially finished Travel report on San Antonio which was lost when my computer's hard drive failed. I visited San Antonio one time previously back in the 1990s and it was an interesting experience to compare my previous impressions as a teenager against this more recent visit. Speaking of travel, we'll be going on vacation in a couple of weeks at the end of June so I won't be online much during that period. Expect more travel articles based on that trip after we get back and have a chance to sort through the pictures that we take.
