Impatient

More of a non-post, this, but I felt I hadn't put anything up here in a while. Work's very busy at the moment, so not much time to play. I've done a little more Tomb Raider, but it's slow going. I tried the first level of Impire, but it took an absolute age, and it looks like one of those games where you have to do the same base building at the beginning of every level, so it's only going to get slower from here on out. So, I made the executive decision to throw Impire back on the pile. I just don't have time for it at the moment, and I want something a bit quicker paced to jump into. To the randometer, Batman!

In other news, my Steam Link and Controller turned up a couple of weeks ago. I haven't really had a chance to experiment with the finer features of them much yet, but the main reason I got them was so I could stream the Lego games down to the living room and play them with my son on weekend mornings. And it's been great! We've mostly been playing the Lego Marvel game, but he's really getting into it. He's not *that* good yet, but he's getting there! I'll make a geek of him yet.

So, next up on the randometer is...The Train: Escape to Normandy! Hmm...not exactly what I was hoping for, but I'll give it a quick go. Can't promise I'll stick with it, though. Looks like an old DOS game from 1987 where you're in control of a train in occupied France trying to escape the Germans. Funnily enough, it was also released in Germany with a title that translates as "The Train: Only You Can Defeat It". Not sure if that meant it was completely turned round and you were playing the Germans trying to destroy the train! (Somehow I doubt that one.)
