New Labour fundraising

with one comment

Yesterday I put dialogue to 2 comics, and I plan to put in the dialogue for a 3rd one this afternoon.  I’m posting one comic a day for the next three days to spread them out a bit. All these comics are on the theme of fundraising.

labourfundraisingOn a seperate path I notice that Il-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey and Arma II have quietly crept onto consoles. These are both the continuations of a 1st generation of military simulations which I bought a while ago. It seems now these simulations have moved to a console audience and although I haven’t played them, I fear they might be dumbed down to appeal to a wider audience. This is a good thing because I found the complexities of both first games frustrating.

Matthieu phoned earlier to say that Halo 3: Orbital Drop Shock Trooper comes out in about 2 weeks. This is good news:

  1. I consider Halo to be a benchmark for console shooter games with an unpredictable story, wonderful settings and lots of fun. More of the same would be much appreciated.
  2. The Halo 3 map packs come with the game.
  3. New Firefight multiplayer mode.
  4. Get to play as Sargent Johnson if you preorder.
  5. Continuation of features introduced in Halo 3 such as Theater and Forge.

The bad news is:

  1. It costs £40. This is an enormous amount of money to spend on any video game… even if it’s Halo.
  2. I have school soon. School tends to replace video games pretty dramatically.
