I’ve been holding off on a few posts. It’s been a while so I wanted to make sure I put an update in. My book The Deliverer is coming along well. I’m already in to the third chapter of it, after re-reading and revising. I won’t be releasing any more chapters until it is entirely complete, but the first chapter will always remain free so anyone can read it and see if it sounds like something they will enjoy reading. I also have some plans in place to release a graphic novel version of the story once the final version of the book is completed and available. So, aside from work and writing The Deliverer, what has been keeping me busy and away from updates on here? Getting out and about (I took my first trip ever to an Ikea), being with family, and playing video games. Minecraft is already well known as a game I enjoy. I still enjoy playing single player and on the ninja nerds server (a link to it is on ninjanerdstech.com).
There is also the release of Terraria that I’ve been noting. I don’t yet have a copy of it but it definitely seems interesting. From watching videos of it I can see straight away that it has some similarities to Minecraft, but the two games are very different. I think I’ll be giving it a shot in the future.
What I have been enjoying immensely in the past couple of days is LA Noire, which is presented by Rockstar Games. Rockstar didn’t program and build this game, but their influence is still all over it. When I first purchased it I was expecting to perhaps be cruising along in 1940′s cars, smashing things when I felt like being a bit careless, and basically roaming around as I pleased. This game has a real storyline and is open, but pretty linear in gameplay. The recreated 1940′s LA world is amazing, and very historically accurate. The much advertised facial animations are definitely the best I have ever seen in a game. I was even able to instantly identify the actors and actresses portraying the characters. Not every character in the game is played by a star, but there are enough to make me impressed.
The bulk of the game is spent combing crime scenes and interrogating suspects and witnesses. There is a lot more to it than I first surmised. I am very much enjoying it and I recommend it to anyone who loves these sorts of games.
I’ll be making a proper article very soon, and will be posting some updates about The Deliverer in the near future. Thanks for reading!
