Lets Play Age of Empires II: HD Edition Part 4 The Offensive

In this video I finally start taking the fight to the enemy who have been harassing me now for sometime. Its the first proper push into enemy territory but will it be the last?

 

 

 

 

 

[For those that were quick you may have seen this post yesterday. I was trying to be clever and schedule the post but the american date system caught me out ¬_¬]

Let’s Play Plague Inc: Evolved

This is my latest Let’s play video. Its a game that has just come available on Steam as an early access, You might have played it on the web or on mobile this version at its core seems to be the same game spruced up for a full pc experience there are also options for multiplayer and challenges although these arnt currently implemented.

i am rather interested to see how the multiplayer will work

Lets Play Car Mechanic Simulator 2014

This one is an unusual one.  I saw the game become available on steam the other day and wondered how on earth they could make a game about being a game mechanic.

Of course I really  shouldnt have been surprised considering how many of sim games are now available. I am one of those people that like sim games but have got used to them being pretty poor and pretty badly limited in what you are actually able to do.

I have to say that Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 actually seems pretty competent. As your’ll see in the video I played the first full mission but what you wont see is that I had got half way through the second mission before my computer crashed which isnt the games fault. From what i have played already the game is well made has great graphics and seems to cover alot of varing situations.  The game is stable and I had a good time with it. Check out my video and then find the game on steam.

 

I am hoping to upload further missions very soon. Also look out for further episodes of my Age of Empires videos.

The Creature Feature

Ea today officaly released the creature creator tool for maxis coming game spore and i like many have downloaded it and been having a play around. Already a search around youtube and im sure many of the other video and video game sites will bring you up many many weird and wonderful creature that would never have a chance in the real world.

The tool it self is so easy to use it hurts everything is pretty much self explanatory and things can be molded like virtual playdought you start of with I a ball of well I guess flesh with a backbone which you can twist and turn and pull it into pretty much any shape you could want you add things like eyes legs feet weapons mouth and you have yourself a basic creature.

My first creature created with the creature creator
is shown in this video

It probably took 10 mins at most. Now Im using the trial version which as you would imagine has fewer parts and colour’s etc the full version is available but I don’t like the ea downloader thing but even with fewer part there is a ton of options available and i can see me tinkering around for some time with it.

Its really easy to create videos and send them to youtube as its all built into the program you are also able to create animated avatars and still pictures

Animated Avatar created in Spore Creature Creater

For the second creature i made i decided to make something as tall as i could and ended up with treeasorus which looks like a sort of dinasour stick insect.

A few other creatures from around the web. [well, okay youtube ¬_¬]

If you want to have a play you can download the program from EA Here

Link to your creation in the comments I would love to see what you come up with.

Same goes for any that you happen to come across too.

Now as a kid and infact as an adult I love Lego it is a brilliant toy and tool. Over the years i have used it for all sorts of things some of which were intended i.e.various models and the such. and some that weren’t so much Its very versatile stuff you know and can really help in a bind.

It seems to me that its one of those toys that will never really go away and Ii for one am glad of that. lets hear it for another 50 years and for many more!
