Hi peeps. I am back on stream starting tonight (29th November 2021) after a short break. I will still be absent the next two Wednesdays as the puppy training course has a couple of weeks to go. We might be starting the next course after that but I am not sure when that runs so I will announce any more disruption here.
This week and next I will be playing some XCom 2 again. I can’t remember how far I got into the campaign for War of the Chosen or if I need to start a new game – we will find out together tonight!
It is my birthday soon and since it is a round number I thought I would do a stream relating to that number. So on the 13th of December the stream will be 50 Video Games that influenced Hamish over the years. It is – sort of – a top 50 but I expect the order would be different every time I did it. I might even have forgotten some game or games that I remember another time. So take it with a pinch of salt and don’t read it as a canonical Hamish’s Top 50.
This week we tackle one of the lengthier campaigns in Battle for Wesnoth. This will afford a more in-depth look at the cool stuff that can be achieved with the Wesnoth engine as well as further character advancement than we’ve shown in the multiplayer sessions.
Since it is a bit cooler this week I will catch up with my intended game, Red Steel on the Wii. An FPS / sword game with a dubious story line but might be fun with Wii controls if I don’t get confused with the movement. Thursday night is party game night and everyone is invited to take part.
Woah it is HOT! Despite what a certain Brazilian friend may say it is very, very, hot in my locale right now. I was thinking of playing some Wii games this week but I decided “bugger that in this heat”.
I decided instead to stay with lower activity stuff like last week, plus I am adding a wee bonus on Friday.
Monday July 12th I will be streaming again. To be honest, Peanut (the puppy) hasn’t become any less of a needy pain in the arse but I am going to try to make his evening walk as late as possible before the show. He has stopped losing his baby teeth and although his adult teeth are still growing in he is not as bad as he was last month. Fingers crossed we will get through it all okay.
There are a load of games I still haven’t got around to playing, as well as some old favourites to rediscover and some games that I tried before that have been updated. I shall be taking a look at some of these this coming week on stream:
Monday – Duskers, super cool indie exploration game
Tuesday – Surviving Mars – colonising the Red Planet
Wednesday – Battle for Wesnoth – Multiplayer, with special guests
It has been a wee while since there was an official schedule, mainly due to continued puppy disruption. I am going to start scheduling again from this week and try to get Peanut into a routine of resting at the correct time for me to stream.
In this first week of the New Plan™ I will be streaming things that need less dedicated concentration for the most part, in the hopes of ironing out any problems with his new routine. To that end this week will start with a quiz (the last one to use the quiz engine we have used before, I will chat about that when we are getting ready to start) and the rest of the week I will play retro games while chatting about my own Z80 computer project.
Monday: Quiz nite!
Tuesday – Thursday: Classic gaming and chat about building the Z80 retro computer
I am not sure if I will be able to do a full stream (puppy-dependent) but I will at least attempt to start one each night. We are still in the world of Deus Ex so I will try to complete that when I can.
Monday- Thursday: Deus Ex (finishing times may vary)
