And another book in review collection, last from my vacation binge, queue is slowly clearing and I’m not reading past week or so, trying to rest my eyes some more while in the bus, not sure if they are tired or it’s just heating season making air to dry, since I think it was the same last year. Wouldn’t hurt to let them rest anyway though and for reviews I still have plenty of books too.
Today it’s time to get to the fairy tale by Strugatsky, this one is a bit of a weird one for non-soviet person, even younger generations of Russians probably will not understand a lot of humour and messages here, honestly I potentially missed some myself, since I might be a boomer, but not that old. Still it’s a very good book and might be just interesting window back into that era (why I also like Strugatsky’s books). Now with more details… Continue reading “Dungeon Bookshelf vol.5: Monday Begins on Saturday”
Got some time this week so we are back to some book reviews again. My vacation selection has only a couple left, so almost done with it, but I’m also still reading on my swimming pool “commute”, so there’s still a lot of material.
More Strugatsky brothers and their soviet sci-fi, at this point I’m quite dedicated to just read all their works, because I’m already quite deep, enjoy it a lot and some of the books form a whole universe that would be nice to explore fully. This time we are full future (or well actually future for them, but we are almost in that future currently, a bit altered version, but close, which makes it more interesting) and on Earth, so no space travels and other races, just our own issues as a future society that achieved abundance and peace. A little bit of dystopia today, let’s go… Continue reading “Dungeon Bookshelf vol.4: The Final Circle of Paradise (Predatory Things of the Century)”
Not a book review today, gonna write some different stuff once in a while, since there’s plenty of books still to review, will take a while to cover it all and they don’t stop coming too. Let’s go with some sellout announcement.
Different goals that streamers set are around for a long while and I even did dono goals earlier this year for a few times, was big success actually, thanks to you, guys. But it always was some 3rd party tools used for it, now Twitch actually added something decent that allows you to set up sub/follower goals on their end with proper chat/channel integration. Since I don’t really do a lot of special streams, I figured it might be a good time to check this Sub Goal stuff now for Halloween, because I actually have something in mind for it and well selling out once in a while for a good reason is good. For tl;dr: a little speshul Halloween stream with my Clive Barker’s Undying playthrough + some kitchen action if we get say +66 subs. But a bit more detail now… Continue reading “Trying Twitch’s own official subgoals implementation. Halloween Special”
Ayyy, we back from degen life, or maybe surfaced for a moment and gonna sink again, you never know, but I hope not. Back to our 5Head reviews of quality soviet sci-fi that I’m still reading and enjoying.
More Strugatsky brothers, still catching up with my vacation books, this time The Inhabited Island (that’s direct translation from Russian, other name sounds kinda weird). Another bit of setting mixture, but this time not future-medieval, like in Hard to Be a God, but future-industrial, with some dystopian vibes. This book actually even got a movie not long ago in Russia, it was shit unfortunately, but quite popular. But we are going to discuss a book rn though, let’s go… Continue reading “Dungeon Bookshelf vol.3: Prisoners of Power (The Inhabited Island)”
Ain’t no rest for the wicked, time for another episode of my little scuffed book reviews. Strugatsky brothers again, there will probably around 10 more reviews (if not more) until I’m kinda done with everything I want to read out of their books and I have full collection, so might as well binge that, but we’ll see. In any case I’m currently at 7 books finished and you only had one review, so yeah.
A bit different kind of sci-fi in today’s book, it overlaps with medieval world in a very interesting setting that in my opinion could fit some good videogame (there was one actually, but not very good, might actually be good Eurojank RPG material for my stream later). Let’s go… Continue reading “Dungeon Bookshelf vol.2: Hard to Be a God”
Time for first scuffed book review post that I planned after all the reading during my vacation. Five books from Strugatsky brothers were consumed during calm days when I was alone at the summer house between my friends and relatives arrivals.
Strugatsky brothers are Russian sci-fi authors and aren’t super huge worldwide, but main thing that puts them on the big picture is “Roadside Picnic” book that was an inspiration to “Stalker” movie by Tarkovsky and then both inspired Stalker the videogame that we all know and sequel to which is a very big thing currently. Great sci-fi writers and totally worth reading even just for Roadside Picnic especially if you are a Stalker fan, you sure will see a lot of familiar things and even words (at least Russian book and game uses a lot of same slang), Ela already read it btw, haven’t heard his opinion yet though. But enough intro, let’s start… Continue reading “Dungeon Bookshelf vol.1: Roadside Picnic”
Yo, very delayed, but didn’t have any day offs since I returned and getting back in my work mode with some clown fiestas on the background is a bit chaotic still.
Great vacation, very “variety” vacation this year, satisfied with everything except for weather, next years if I plan summer house action it would be better to do it few weeks earlier to catch warmer days for more activities outside. Already did my “recap” stream, but gonna go a bit into detail in this post too, little diary in a way… Continue reading “Post vacation report. Summer 2021”
Last year I wrote a pretty big post for my vacation (you can read it here) where I went quite philosophical and explained a lot of things about streamers and vacations, everything I said there is still relevant, so not gonna go too deep in that this time.
Another year of no conventions and another opportunity to hang out with friends having their vacations etc, so time for me to get some rest this year. Will be out from tomorrow (14.08) until 30.08 Monday, basically barely gonna be in the city and at the PC this time, want to disconnect myself more from distractions and change environment as much as possible. Gonna post photos on Insta though and maybe film some YT material for the future, but we’ll see about that. That’s the tl;dr version basically and I’ll see you when I’m back, gonna be a lot of things happening in autumn, but a bit more vacation details in full post… Continue reading “Vacation post for summer 2021”
Damn, it’s been a while since I wrote on blog, 1.5 months. Clearly power of Ragnarok Online was underestimated (imagine if they had longer break since Russian server or started with this one, oof) and only now I’m starting to somewhat get back to more productivity, just to get pushed back by upcoming new MMOs.
But while this moment of concentrated willpower lasts I’ll update on what happened (especially stuff from my Summer Fest Post) and what’s gonna happen now. Talking about it on stream quite regularly, but still worth having it on paper for everyone to check any moment… Continue reading “MMO addict trying to resist and actually post on blog. Plans update/report”
Long time no reviews, finished some games that I still need to review from the past, like still no Morrowind review, smh. Will be trying to make them more composed, maybe following some structure to make it easier to write and navigate, also faster and hopefully less triggering for my perfectionism.
Warhammer, especially 40k has pretty complicated relationships with videogames, big hit or miss usually and genres are not very diverse, but today we got something relatively unique for WH lately, let’s see if it’s a hit or a miss… Continue reading “My imqhotbqh on Necromunda: Hired Gun”
