Star Wars Galaxies


Went out fishing on Naboo today :)
Managed to add 5 different fishes to 2 of my collections (the reel life and Nabooian Angler).

Star Wars Galaxies


Played a bit of SWG, mostly exploring for collections, it's somewhat fun to do but i absolutely hate the "kill ten rats" type of collections, they're too much like grinding.... kill 100 of a, kill 200 of c, yada yada yada... boring shit.

However i do think the finding items collections are fun.

Games i'v been playing

Just a couple of Atari 2600 games i've been playing:
Berzerk, Galaxian, Defender, Deadly Discs, Space Invaders, Pitfall 2.


Funny how much fun these old games are to play, so much that i've not been logging in to any of my mmo's for days or played any of the latest games.
I've been planning to play some Tabula Rasa, SWG, UT3 or Crysis but can't tear myself away from my Atari 2600..

Too much fun ??

Again today i didn't do much pc gaming (apart from the late nighter playing UT3 yesterday), i am having way too much fun playing my old (and "new") Atari 2600 games :)

Games like H.E.R.O., Dig Dug, Stargate and Pitfall are loads of fun to play.

Unreal Tournament 3


Still having lots of fun doing the campaign mode.

Unreal Tournament 3


The game looks awesome and is a lot of fun to play.

Another weblog

I just started another "weblog".
It's called Atari 2600 High Scores by Hauntshade.
You can find it at www.myatari2600.com.
This blog is kind of what the title says, it's where i keep track of my high scores with games played on my Atari 2600.

Anyway i am off to play some Unreal Tournament 3 :)

Finally decided to get myself a new domain name :)
From now on this blog can also be found through www.toworldsunknown.com

Lock 'n' Chase


Really should get back to some mmo's but so far i am still having loads of fun playing the Atari 2600 games, like Lock 'n' Chase :)
It's funny how "simple" old games can still be so much fun, it's not about the looks but all about fun gameplay and the Atari 2600 has lots of them.

A few days ago i mentioned i wished someone made a modern version out of H.E.R.O., well i just found a 2006 remake :)
Fun to play but i do think the controls are somewhat "slow" and it feels not as fast paced as the original.

It was a remake by Trevor Storey and you can find it here.



Still playing mostly Atari 2600 games, finally got a bit further in H.E.R.O., made it to level 15.

And started playing Pitfall :)


I am having lots of fun playing the old Atari again.

zondag 18 november 2007



Finally found a ROM version of H.E.R.O. (IMHO one of the best games for the Atari 2600), so i can play it on my PC.
Brings back lots of memories, funny how i still remember some of the levels, still a great game,wish they made a "modern" version out of this.

Anyway on my first attempt i made it to level 12 (out of 20) :)

Star Wars Galaxies


Finally played some SWG again, got started on the "Collection Quest Series", so far it's fun.... well it gives me something to do again in game.



You'd almost forget to fight with scenery like this :)

vrijdag 16 november 2007



Got my copy of Crysis today, great game !
So far i am only just starting the single player campaign.
I played (multiplayer) beta for some time and played the demo, so i knew i would like it :)

Legends of Norrath

Played a little bit of the Legends of Norrath card game, did a few scenarios and won them, but i have to admit i have no clue what i am doing but it looks like a lot of fun :)

Tabula Rasa


Logged in for a little while doing a few quests in Divide and just having some fun out on the battlefield fighting the Bane.

woensdag 14 november 2007

Tabula Rasa


Finally managed to get the 25 Imperial Assault tokens i needed, logged in, at 4:00 AM, found the server population was low and found an instance where Imperial Valley was in Bane hands, helped taking it back and completed my last Wilderness quest and got the title "Master of Wilderness, yay !!

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare


Played the Call of Duty 4 Demo, quite intense, game looks great, might give this one a try.

Tabula Rasa


Reached level 18, solo'd the Pravus Research Facility and the Crater Lake Reasearch Facility.
I am practicly done with Wilderness, all i need are 25 Imperial Valley assault tokens to finish the "wilderness targets of opportunity" quest line, but people are still all on defense there (in all 6 instances)..
It's getting stupid, level 18 and still hanging out in Wilderness...


Tabula Rasa


Reached level 17 (almost 18), mostly been doing missions in Divide.

zondag 11 november 2007

Tabula Rasa


Made it to level 16, finally managed to solo my first instance, Caves of Donn.
At level 15 i went from Soldier to Ranger.

Hellgate London


Played a little bit of Hellgate London, did a mission and the game freezed on me again when i was selling loot to the merchant, moving stuff from my inventory to the merchant's (again, inventory)....
Had to reboot my computer to get out of the game, this is just no fun !, fix the damn game, the game is cool but no way i'm gonna get a subscription for this.

Tabula Rasa


Still at level 14 (very close to 15), but finally managed to get the last 3 Landing Zone Assault tokens i needed, since people are always on defense, the bane almost never take over a base so assault tokens are very hard to get, took me over 2 hours to get these 3 tokens....
Now all i need is 25 Imperial Valley Assault tokens.... :(



Just wanted to mention this great podcast, TabulaCast.
Part of the Virginworlds Podcast Collective.
You can download/subscribe to it through iTunes or go to the TabulaCast website here.

Tabula Rasa


Finally reached level 14 :)

vrijdag 9 november 2007

Tabula Rasa


Still at level 13, but doing some missions in Divide, getting majorly annoyed by people asking stuff that deserves only an answer like: "read the fucking manual" or "read your fucking mission details". People are so fucking lazy these days...

Tabula Rasa


Really wish they scaled instances to level, in beta i was able to solo instances, it was tough sometimes but i could do it. I have tried a few instances and they were pretty much impossible to solo (too many high level mobs jumping me at the same time).
For now i am just leveling up and hope to be able to solo them when i level, so i don't mind to much but it is the first dent into my Tabula Rasa fanboy status :)

Yes i am a solo player, i don't want to waste my online time looking for a group! (so don't start).

Tabula Rasa


Still playing Tabula Rasa, reached level 13 mostly hanging out in Divide killing bane :)

Tabula Rasa


Still playing Tabula Rasa, made it to level 12 today.
Mostly been out collecting Logos and exploring, well not really, most of it is "known grounds" as i have been there before in beta, so it's not really exploring :)
But it is still fun to see the changes made since the last time i was in beta.

Think i'll be going for sniper this time with my character.

If you're a European player you might consider starting a character on a US server, at the moment there is only one EU server and it's over populated (at prime time there are often waiting times to log in), also there's a lot of people that think that since this is a European server you can speak your own language and not the "universal" language (English), it's sure annoying the hell out of me, i've actually started using /addignore on all players not speaking English.

Richard Garriot/General British (well it was an admin saying to be RG) was online last weekend stating there will be more EU servers added, they were somewhat surprised with the sales in Europe, but new server means new character as there will not be any char transfers.
He has also stated there will be English/German/French chat channels added, so chat will become a lot more enjoyable (can't come to soon for me).

Tabula Rasa - Pets


Got my Collectors Edition today, including another ingame pet,a Boo Bot.
It kinda looks like a flying robot chicken, doesn't do much other than follow you around, but it looks funny :)


Also have the PreOrder pet called a Pine-Ock, kinda looks like a monkey and other than follow you around and scratching its butt it does nothing, but again it looks funny :)

maandag 5 november 2007

Tabula Rasa

Wanted to play Tabula Rasa today, but unfortianatly my collectors edition hasn't arrived yet...


I was playing on my PreOrder copy and that has "timed out" now, so i'll have to wait until my CE arrives.


Also can't wait to get the TR keyset for my Zboard (has a delivery time of a couple of weeks), should be fun playing TR with that (instead of my G15) and i'll finally have a use for that old zboard again :), think the last time i used it was way back when i was playing lots of Delta Force: Black Hawk Down.

Hopefully i'll be back in game soon..

Tabula Rasa


Leveled up to 11 :)
Having lots of fun, but one word of advice: don't pay attention to the chat.
It's whine, whine, whine..
Whine about lag, whine about SWG CU/NGE (why is it we get these losers in all new mmo's...), whine about that it takes 20 secs to kill a mob, whine about a server que that took 5 mins.., it's just constant whining.

I just don't understand the constant whining, it's very simple: don't like the game? than go fuck off and play another game that's more to your liking.

Stop the whining and start playing and enjoy a great game!

Tabula Rasa


Been playing Tabula Rasa, loads of fun defending bases :)

Hellgate London


So far i was having a lot of fun with Hellgate London, reached level 10 with my character.
However it seems there are still some bugs, i've had several game freezes and with the last time i had to reboot my computer because i couldn't get out of the game.
Usually it happens when working with my inventory or after using the relocators.
It's really strange cause i never experienced this during beta.
It's gotten to a point that i want to play but don't feel like it because of those freezes...

Clive Barker's Jericho


Graphics in this game look awesome.

Hellgate London
