The time is upon us ! Starcraft 2 ! The game I’ve been anticipating for the past 2 years or something is finally in my hands, I got into beta. So did Arwen, Kirsten & Bouw but they don’t have their account yet. My first impressions are a bit mixed. It definitely has the Starcraft feeling, but not much else has changed. Sure we have some new units, but otherwise it feels like exactly the same game. Which is both good and bad. Good in the sense that Starcraft 1 was awesome, bad that a lot of things are a bit standard in RTS games these days. Zooming out so you can see more then 5 buildings would have been great. I’m sure the opinions will be divided on this one though In any case I’m looking forward to the rest of the gang having their keys so we can do some multiplayer.
We did have a LAN last weekend though, Supreme Commander mostly. For the first time a colleague from work joined us; Benny. He’s a bit of a geek like the rest of us so I think he’ll be joining more in the future
Yesterday I went to see Kick Ass. And to make a lame joke, it was … kick ass :p Pretty much what we were expecting of it, funny and over the top Good movie ! (if you like that sort of thing though, it won’t be for everyone)
On the medical front there’s some good news, my ears have gone back to almost normal. Got a slight loss in the very high pitches but that was most likely there before as well. Doesn’t bother me. I can listen to music again without it sounding weird and can understand conversations, woohoo !
Next weekend I’m going over the Valery, it has been a while. We’ll most likely go to see Iron Man 2. Really looking forward to that one, the trailers look awesome. Talking about weekend, I’m glad it’s Friday evening ! This week was hectic at work, it flew by really fast. This weekend should be relatively quiet, just chilling. Tomorrow is Katrien’s 30th birthday though, so there are some plans there She’s not the big partier, so we’ll keep it small. We’re just going out to dinner. Katrien wanted to go to a vegetarian restaurant. Unfortunately it’s fully booked so we’re going to do something oriental instead, should still be good
That’s it !
