One of the difficult things about keeping a blog and going to school is dealing with the backlog. I’ve exacerbated the problem slightly trying to maintain a consistent Monday and Thursday schedule AND by ensuring a picture for each entry. Often, I’ll have most – but not all – of my posts completed in a text document in a thumb drive, and the only thing I’m waiting for is an image to upload with the post. Eventually, the semester ends, and I have trouble motivating myself to get my posts out there. I promise I’ll get them up soon.
Recently, I’ve been playing a fair amount of Sniper Elite on Steam. While I really enjoy the game, I can’t play for more than 10 minutes without experiencing the motion sickness that I once felt from Wolfenstein 3D.
I’ve played several first person shooters since those old Wolfenstein/Doom days, and I thought they had the motion sickness problem worked out. I was fine playing Golden Eye, Team Fortress 2, and even Portal on the PC (for some reason, the console version of Portal still makes me ill). For some reason, though, Sniper Elite just wiped me out.
It is for this reason that I am terrified at the thought of playing Mirror’s Edge, the game represented by today’s image. By integrating FPS with Parkour, they’ve made a game that will likely make me toss my cookies. I can’t say for certain, but I’m not going to pay money to find out.
