Battle Worlds: Kronos

Another day down, and another potentially great is being a reality thanks to Kickstarter!

Battle Wolrds: Kronos  Revisited is a forthcoming  Turn-Based Strategy game for the PC, Mac,Linux, and Web Browsers (for Multilayer only.) Thanks to the completion of the $250,000 stretch goal "Play Anywhere!" it's  also coming out on the iPad, Android Tablet, and Ouya. All backers of the project will have free access to these extra versions.

Battle Worlds will have a strong Single Player Campaign with two opposing factions, the "Yerla" and the Rebels. Each boasting 30 plus hours of gameplay. Other features include single player challenge maps, live muliplayer, asynchronous multiplayer mode, and a map editor for the windows release.

As per Kronos's Kickstarter page, estimated delivery of backer rewards is Dec 2013. The public release of the game will most likely not be too far behind.

Divinity: Original Sin Funded on Kickstarter

This morning I was very excited to hear that not only is Divinity: Original Sin going to be released, it reached all of it's Kickstarter stretch goals. Before I went to sleep on the 25th I saw that with less then 24 hours left in their funding campaign Divinity was able to hit the $800,000 mark. This "second to last" goal upgrades the in game hirelings from genetic Henchmen to fully developed Companions. A major achievement indeed but the odds of the game reaching 1,000,000 and unlocked the final goal of "day/night cycles, weather systems, and NPC schedules" seemed unlikely.  Too much money to cover in too short a time.

As it turns out, the conurbations donated to Larian Studios LLC via PayPal were enough to push the total funds received passed 1 Million. Thanks to the generous support of RPG gamers like me we're soon going to have the pleasure of playing a 100% complete Divinity: Original Sin later this year.  


For those of you unaware of this forthcoming title, Original Sin is the third game in the "Divinity" main series and will feature old school turn based combat in an a large free roaming world. If your a PC gamer and a RPG fan this game is definitively worth looking in to.  


...and thus began the mighty hero's EPIC experimentation with Blogging.

I've been wanting to do something like this for a long time but could never get it off the ground. Each time I would start by writing layout HTML tags and monkeying with style sheet, full indenting to finish the initial site so I can began posting my "amazing content." As it turns out, building a website from scratch is a painfully tedious and time consuming endeavor when you have zero web design training. All my previous attempts were doomed to fail.

Today while checking my email Google recommended that I try their "blogger" product. I figured it's time to give this website thing another shot. All posting content with minimal formatting frustration.

Purpose of Blog: Primary, to share my interest and ideas with the general public. Have a blog is also a good way for me to work on my writing skills on a regular basis.  

Declaimer: I apologize for whatever grammatical and spelling errors that exist in this post and anywhere else in my blog. Currently, I'm dong all my own proof reading and I'm not very good at it. Feel free to email or message me any mistakes and I'll to my best to fix them as soon as possible.
