Defense Grid 2

Lately I am enjoying playing Defense Grid 2. The follow up to the excellent first Defense Grid from 2008. I have been recording my efforts on my Zimmy910 youtube channel. It’s not a blind play through though, I have been playing the missions at least once before. Some even more (like mission 7, the hardest so far IMHO). Makes it a bit more interesting I think, since I can come up with a better solution for the Tower Defense puzzle than on my first playthrough.

FTL – Faster than light

Have been playing quite a bit of this game again, ever since I started watching Lethalfrag on Twitch ! The advanced edition, released in April, added quite a bit to the game. I learned a lot from his stream, the game is not as impossible as I thought it was back in 2012 when I tried it first.

I made a video of my second victory, this time the Zoltan A ship. Since it’s rather boring to just watch it, I recorded some commentary. For the very first time. It’s rather weird to hear your own voice back and there are some odd pauses in between words, where I try to come up with something.  Ah  well it’s not too bad I hope ;).

SQUAD: To the mun and back

A very interesting article appeared on polygon.com about Kerbal Space Program. It’s not your regular article about the game, but more about how it came to be, and a history of Squad, the company that has created this masterpiece. And how one man’s dream came to be. Originally it wasn’t even supposed to make any money, it started as just a side project. I didn’t even know Squad is originally a marketing company (and apparently still is !).
