Sooo... my laptop is back. Now that I know how long it took for the service to take care of it, I'm so glad I decided to set up my temporary base somewhere else. I don't know how I would've remained sane for so long without my tablet, nor any games to play. Still, I grew used to to the new thing so that now I'm back, I can hardly type (seriously it's so weird the keys are in different places altogether and different feel of it and daaamn). At first I had problems with colors as well but it's sorta okay now. I hate this thing with monitors - change the color adjustment and suddenly your work looks like vomit. Ughhh. Still gotta do that format though.
I'm still playing AC IV Black Flag (sequence 9 as of now) and I gotta hand it to the game, it MIGHT be a little better than what I took it for. Definitely better than what it was at first and even Ed seems somewhat tolerable. The game keeps telling me I suck and I should upgrade the Jackdaw and I don't know what its deal is - I usually either die or end up playing so great I still got more than half of my health left. Kinda nice that Ubisoft upped the difficulty, sad it's with the ships though. I went from furiously hating to somewhat enjoying utterly destroying those sad bastards that dare to choose the same seas as me but still - without robbing ships and doing all sorts of additional activities it's kinda hard to get through the main storyline. That one time I had to, for the first time in my cadency, quit a memory to break down the damn port to make it easier. What kind of game does that?! None other required me to destroy borgia towers or templar dens so that it was easy enough to get through the main game. I also have a feeling that fighting soldiers/guards/whatever is kinda harder in this game, I mean, it's not like I can always defeat an army. Only a small army. And brutes are kinda harder... now that I finally learned how to get a kill streak they spoil my fun : < Or maybe it's just the lack of neverending medicines, steady flow of cash and relatively cheap armor. It's not like I actually go in search of those animals I need for crafting, so it's only now that the game threw deer in my face I finally got a health upgrade.
Also, I just found out that my calarts class has been in contact for a few months now and they play L4D2, TF2 and all kinds of games and Assassin's Creed too and is this heaven coz I think that I finally found where I belong ;__; Art and games. My life.
