Not dead yet

January 24th, 2010 (03:29 am)

....just busy gaming, desperately trying to finish Mass Effect for the third time and clear out all the remaining achievements before Mass Effect 2 launches next week.

Plus minor little things like getting my first ever flat screen tv, and then discovering I have no place to fit it in unless I do a massive furniture re-arrangement/move around/spring clean. And I owe moragmacpherson the next chapter of our fic at some point urgently last week.

You know, the minor stuff.

You know, I admire people who so diligently work at getting all the achievements on games. S does the same as you (he's currently playing Borderlands). I only tend to go through a game once and then don't bother to get all the achievements. Right now, I'm playing Dragon Age, although I can see myself playing that more than once because it's so fun!

I'll even admit it's probably a bit OCD-ish, but part of it is also the competition with friends as well. "You haven't got that yet?!!?"

And must get back to Dragon Age sometime. I did enjoy playing it, right up to the point when I unexpectedly ran into a dragon which keeps slaughtering my team. I know, I know the title of the game should have been a clue...

I know the exact part you mean. I'm not quite there yet but I've watched S battle that dragon a few times. The trick is to have Liliana in your team and keep her alive. She's the one who S uses to kill it each time. Health packs help, too!

Aren't flat screen tv's brilliant? We bunged ours on the chimney breast.

I wanted to do this, but the geometry of the room wasn't good for it - you had to look up at the screen if you were sitting on the setee, which made it difficult to watch TV while doing other things - and heat was probably going to be an issue if I ever used the fireplace, so I ended up putting it on a trolley in one corner. Not ideal, but it works.

In contrast, the geometry of our living room doesn't lend itself to a 42" flat screen anywhere but on the wall. Luckily, we have an electric fire with a substantial surround so heat isn't a problem, even though the tv is mounted fairly low.

Yeah, similiar problems here. Layout of the room, mainly the location of the plugs and cable entry that's determined just where I'm going to place it.

It certainly looks brilliant, and I have tested it out briefly to check it's okay from the trip home, but apart from that haven't been able to use it yet : so much stuff to sort out first.

But it was beautifully light to lift and move around!
