We'll see how it goes though! Certainly a little more fun than simply putting points into Prismatic Bolt and buffing elemental damage.
Today's theme is "Where's your floor at?!"
"Go back from whence you came, strange sort-of-existing beast!"
How many polygons does it take to make one, whole, model? More than I have!
Sure, as evil lairs go, it's a fixxer-upper.
Submitting request for more polygons...BLOCKED
As an aside, I recently installed a new theme for Steam, Air. Streamlines it a fair amount, actually seems to be running a bit quicker, but I no longer seem to be able to properly load up images through it. I partially blame Steam anyhow because it's really cumbersome, but when you get to the image page, if you want to load up the pic, it actually comes up with a tab but it's entirely transparent. You can right click it and get the image url, but it's a bit annoying. Makes me wish Steam just made it easier to get the damn link.

Was Playing some Chivalry with the flatmates when we saw something called "laser swords"...
Low Gravity, Star-Wars music that played whenever you were in combat or enemies were near, the proper lightsaber sounds for when you swing, and when you parried, because of the low gravity you would get thrown back.

Decided to use the weekend to indulge in some World of Warcraft. Playing a level 75-80 Rogue means revisiting all those great areas in Northrend, which is always a joy.
The colourful Crystalsong Forest, where magical beings are never far away.
Scourgeholme in Icecrown, with the floating city of Dalaran in the background.
The gnomes of the Fizzcrank Airstrip on the south-western edge of the continent.
The Geyser Fields make for a very odd landscape. I'd love to see something like this in a more modern graphics/physics engine.

Early morning in the village of Kamagua, home of the tuskarr in the Howling Fjord.
The boat to Menethil Harbour waits at the docks in Valgarde Port, the Alliance's southern stronghold in the zone.
Valgarde Port and its surroundings as seen from the back of a flying mount.
The southern coast of the Borean Tundra, with the tuskarr settlement of Kaskala.

Anyway, this prompted me to look through my old WoW screenshot folder which made me feel all nostalgic.
Remember getting ganked by level 60 rogues in Stranglethorn?
Or when Ivus the Forest Lord and all-weekend Alterac Valley games were a thing? Also just look at that magnificently horrid UI.
I can't even remember what this battleground is called, but I loved that parachute jump. All my characters but one had engineering.

World of Warcraft is one of the best examples I can think of of the importance of art style over pure graphical power. It has no right to look that good considering its age, but the world is just gorgeously designed.

To the point about exploring on the ground. Flying over the Stranglethorn it looked like a mess of low-res trees. From the ground you'd find some wonderful sights. Also note the old tiling water textures - some things definitely got better looking with Cataclysm.
Illidan, the last raid boss I was really excited to kill.
And the last screenshot in my WoW folder.

I unfortunately lost the pic, but I had a great one of my Dwarf on a Talbuk on a cliff in Winterspring before WotLK. I'm glad that my WoW playing time came to an end in Northrend, given how good it looked.
Anyhow, I just booted up Torchlight 2 and immediately had to stop. It's physically quite hard to play the game when the graphics are breaking as badly as they are.
See, that doesn't look too bad, right?
And that's sort of funny.
But that constantly flickering? Too much, even for me.

The main game appears to be crashing when I take screens at very high resolution, haven't figured it out yet, but this is the tech demo portion of Next Car Game, and now in 4K... yes I was surprised it was running well too :)
Also look very closely at one of the tires in the pictures for a little easter egg :)
