I have gotten sucked into playing Navy Field again. I think I mentioned it a while back but I am now working hard to buy my first light cruiser (CL). I like that the game is free to play supported by micro transactions. The option to pay to play is there but I don’t need to spend it. Anyway, I have been leveling my crew and slowly getting ready to eventually change to a manual aiming system. It’s not practical for the run and gun tactics of destroyers but once I’ve got a CL, it’ll be harder to speed away from battleships at 38 knots. I really hope they continue updating and adding more to this game. And now for this week’s guilty pleasure: Britney Spears’ “Gimme More” remixed by Paul Oakenfold.
I also have been playing Warhammer Online. It’s been interesting but the graphics and art of the game has been extremely disappointing. I understand the mechanics and game play are important but I guess I am just spoiled in expecting things from games that are sexy and well polished. That being said, the rest of the game seems fairly solid. There are 40 levels to max out to and the stories and quests are all interesting. I have a feeling, though, that it might not be for the casual gamer I am.
I have found a reason to buy a Nintendo DS: Panzer Tactics. I have actually been lamenting the death of arm chair general type games. The drive to the more popular RTS type strategy gaming has unfortunately dried up funding for games that I cherished in the day like Panzer General. Otherwise, it’s been a gaming lull for me so I am going to be recycling old stuff and actually start working on what I want to do with my music.
We got home late last night so I will be picking up the couch today. I am excited.
