Welcome to my new and improved page of many things =)
Finally a new look that fits with the site, I'm still playing around with how to show all the content in a nice and organised way. It's tough for a page that's about 'so many things' to figure out a structured and organised way of displaying all the information. Basically no matter what I do, it's a full blown information overload. But it beats having 12 different places to post my things .. or 4 social networks for that matter.
On that note, each post here will have a link posted on Google+ and that's all as far as social networks go. I have no Facebook and don't see the need for Twitter. I like the fact that G+ is so small, it gives me the feeling of exclusivity. If you are reading this, you belong to an even more exclusive group of people =)
Anyone feel like making me a logo ?
Just a quick not to let you all know I'm really busy making a huge mod for Skyrim. It's basically going to be a total conversion mod to Alternate Reality, the 8-bit RPG from the 90's. You can find it on the Steam Workshop, and I'll post it here too once it's out of ALPHA stage ;) For now, here's a video showing the city (The City of Xebec's Demise, obviously).
After the new release of 'Legend of Grimrock' stirred up some strong nostalgic feelings inside of me and just because I was bored after completing the Legend of Grimrock, I decided to setup DosBox in combination with D-Fend (a GUI frontend to DosBox). This made it very easy to drop some of my old RPG games in there like Alternate Reality, Land of Lore and most of all, Eye of the Beholder 1,2 and 3!!! I have now completed EOB1 using some help with maps online. However I must say there is no good walkthrough online so I had to figure out some hard things myself. 1 down 2 to go ... also thinking about installing some other SSI titles, I never played any of the Dragonlance series or Dark Sun for example.
Action / drama ... follow 2 police officers as they patrol one of the most dangerous areas of L.A. Lots of action, shooting, gangsters, trash talking and door kicking, but also a good dose of drama involving the brothership the 2 officers have developed for each other as they have been working on the force together for many years. The movie is filmed as if it's a documentairy, personally it added to the atmosphere and believability for me but I guess it can be a turn off for some folks who prefer highly polished hollywood action flicks. Whatever you prefer, I liked this movie a LOT.
The year is 2074. Time travel has not been invented yet, but in 30 years it will ... Loopers are contract killers hired to kill targets that are sent to the year 2074. Why they are called loopers and what story proceeds to unfold, I don't want to reveal. But if you like sci-fi and the mind boggling that comes with time travel stories, this is a movie for you. It's one of those stories that will have you going 'oh I know, it's going to unfold like this ... oh no .. like this, rats thats not it either .. what's going on here ?'. 5 stars all the way for me !

Played in a classic setting, England in the 1800s, this movie tells the story about a young woman who reads a few too many gothic novels which take her fantasy on a rollercoaster ride. She falls in love with a gentleman from a rich family. Obviously the family would like him to marry into another rich family, so there's plenty of dishonesty and deceit going on, trying to keep these two apart. Her over active fantasy plays a large roll in the way she thinks and deals with all that is going on. There's another gentleman who tries to conquer her heart, but alas for him, her heart belongs to only one ... Even though this is an STV release (straight to TV), I found it very enjoyable. The fact that the woman role is played by Felicity jones is enough reason alone to watch this, especially if you like this kind of setting.
