Super mega ultra post time!!
Greetings, my little chickadees–
It is I– Chairbot 9000
Today, I have something a little special for everyone.
In the spirit of the fact that Captain Pain has been threatening me at knife point for some time now– I have decided to make today a mash-up of sorts.
You see, at the end of last month; and yes even earlier this month, I was supposed to have released some articles that the aforementioned crabby Captain had so lovingly scheduled for me.
In order to remedy this– and also keep most of my skin attached to my body, I have chosen to create this all emcompassing post.
It will serve as the following:
1.) Some insight into the terrible steam title DayZ
2.) Some insight into the terrible steam title Conflict
3.) A little insight as to what I’ve been doing instead of my duties here…
4.) An announcement tied to excu– err…entry #3
and so on and so forth…
So! Without any further ado, let’s get to it!
According to it’s STEAM store page– The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus.
Inspired no doubt by the brain-eating fungal infection the creators of this title must have been and/or currently are suffering from…
This multi-player first/third person shit show of a survival title went into a five year long early access period for it’s Windows platform– officially released on December of 2018.
Originally– it was naught but a mod for ARMA 2 and it’s expansion Operation Arrowhead.
The key feature, and hook here being that the environment itself would be a foe the player would have to tangle with to survive– across a zombie infested landscape.
In 2012, development of a standalone version of DayZ began due to its popularity on the mod scene.
This was a mistake…
Almost six years of active development; and the game still functions like a block of swiss cheese.
Full of holes~
Let’s be cut and dry about this one folks.
Based off of the skirmish level tactical fantasy miniature wargame of the same name– Confrontation pits you and your army against the vile forces of the Bran-O-Kor orcs.
But really, who cares?
Simplistic, linear and worth your time and money only if you’re goal is to waste a little of both..
RAPID fire season, baby, NEXT!
Bubble Bubble, Toil & Trouble
So where have I been, that I’ve given you TWO no frills version of Go Play With Yourself?
What excuse could I possibly have to neglect my lovely leaguelettes?
Friends– I would like to tell you a little bit about… The Psalms of Eia
No– not a missing passage of the Bible, as some of you may be assuming. Nay– The Psalms of Eia or TPoE for short; is the name of our current project. An open world, survival, turn-based fighter RPG!
Can it really have all of those genre’s?
Will it culminate into a singular mass of fecal matter?
Can you eat it?
As long as you pay first. (no refunds)
In all seriousness, however– from time to time I’ll be updating you all on our progress, as well as dropping some lore and other information here for you to absorb throughout the process.
I hope you come to love the world of Eia as much as I’ve had dreaming about it over the course of gods know how long..
But soon, there shall be some tangible form of this dream for all to enjoy.
Keep your eyes peeled for more in the very near future!
