Quote of the Moment
How all occasions do inform against me,
And spur my dull revenge! What is a man,
If his chief good and market of his time
Be but to sleep and feed? a beast, no more.
Sure, he that made us with such large discourse,
Looking before and after, gave us not
That capability and god-like reason
To fust in us unused. Now, whether it be
Bestial oblivion, or some craven scruple
Of thinking too precisely on the event,
A thought which, quarter'd, hath but one part wisdom
And ever three parts coward, I do not know
Why yet I live to say 'This thing's to do;'
Sith I have cause and will and strength and means
To do't. Examples gross as earth exhort me:
Witness this army of such mass and charge
Led by a delicate and tender prince,
Whose spirit with divine ambition puff'd
Makes mouths at the invisible event,
Exposing what is mortal and unsure
To all that fortune, death and danger dare,
Even for an egg-shell. Rightly to be great
Is not to stir without great argument,
But greatly to find quarrel in a straw
When honour's at the stake. How stand I then,
That have a father kill'd, a mother stain'd,
Excitements of my reason and my blood,
And let all sleep? while, to my shame, I see
The imminent death of twenty thousand men,
That, for a fantasy and trick of fame,
Go to their graves like beds, fight for a plot
Whereon the numbers cannot try the cause,
Which is not tomb enough and continent
To hide the slain? O, from this time forth,
My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth!
- William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act IV Scene IV
I added a report for the Federation A Cruiser in the FTL section of the website. I was away for a three day weekend, and this week I will start teaching again for the Fall semester, but I'll see what I can do to continue providing regular content updates here.
There's another update today with a report for the Kestrel C Cruiser in FTL. Perhaps not quite as fast as the last one, but hopefully just as enjoyable to read.
Hey look, we have a fresh report for the Kestrel B Cruiser in the FTL section. That was fast!
Today I updated the FTL part of the website with a proper index page, and a report on my first game played on Hard difficulty with the Kestrel A Cruiser. These games will also be recorded on Livestream for anyone who wants to watch them instead of reading a report about them. Still plenty of work to get done in the remaining weeks of summer.
Two more new pages added to the website over the weekend. I've written up the trip through Normal difficulty for the Shinobi class in Rogue Legacy, next up there will be the New Game Plus difficulty levels. I also added an introductory page for a new section on FTL: Faster Than Light, the space-based strategy game that stream viewers have probably noticed me playing already. I plan to expand that out into a larger section with more information down the road. As of tomorrow I will be off traveling for the next week, so there won't be any more updates here for a little while. I was hoping to get the Civ5 stuff written before I left, but it will have to wait until I get back. Still under construction for now.
I've added Part Fifteen: Quest's End, the final entry in Skulla's journey under the Diablo 2 of the website. With Skulla now finished, I'll be moving on to my other old D2 Hardcore character of Winnie next in a week or two. Also in the works: I've played enough of Civ5 Brave New World over the past month to have a solid feel for the gameplay. I'll be working on writing up my thoughts for the long-awaited Civ5 BNW review over the next few days.
