Star Trek Timelines | Reached Endgame

Dusting off this old post from April 2020! I had started to write this up back then, but then it got stuck in my drafts.  Anywho...here's another game that I've reached the end-game! huzzah! (sarcasm).So, what is Star Trek Timelines?  Star Trek Timelines is a mobile free-to-play game that takes place in the Star Trek Universe. I first started playing this on my old iPad 2 (back when that

Vintage Tech - HTC Blue Angel, Universal, HD Mini, and Moto Mpx

Windows Mobile. So much promise...So much frustration ;-)After a hiatus from Windows Mobile (after mu iPaq), I had decided to try windows mobile again.  At the time HTC seemed to be the golden child of the industry when it came to windows phones.  They made reference designs that other companies could use or rebrand.  One such design, which caught my eye, was the HTC Blue Angel which

Vintage Tech - iPaq

Back when I started my graduate studies, I decided to leave the Apple Newton behind (I know, sacrilege, eh?) and get a more "modern" PDA.  While my Newton did support unicode (probably the first platform to do so natively, I think), the unicode was not implemented, so typing in Greek was a pain. I had to either use Greeklish, or use the Symbol font to display contacts (which made my non-Greek

Got some more accolades (STO)

It's been a while since I played Star Trek Online with the intent to be on the accolade hunt.  I actually I thought I had most of them, but then I came across a list created by one of the game's other players and saw that I was missing a considerable amount.  After clearing out the retired accolades (ones that you can't get any longer), and the ones that you can in theory get, but you need

Overload is coming!

It took a while, but this kickstarter is almost here (to be released at the end of May).  I haven't been playing the betas (even though my kickstarter pledge allows me to) to get totally immersed when it's released. It's been a while since I played a game of this sort (since Descent, actually!)

Microsoft: where mobile operating systems go do die

I am not sure if I was revising something on Feedly that I had not read yet, or if this crossed one of my feeds last week, but the story was about Windows Mobile 10 being taken off life support (it wasn't this story, but it gives you an idea). I've come to the conclusion, over the past decade, that Microsoft (just like Sony) just isn't good at Mobile.  They've given it a valiant try with Windows

Star Trek Online: Season 13 - Escalation

Escalation hit the interwebs last week, and having played a bit this weekend it's not bad!  The Smoke & Mirrors mission reminded me a little of Star Wars (the aesthetic), and a little bit of Captain Planet (the "don't mess up your planet by polluting, Kids!)I played a bit in the competitive warzone queues and the space one is definitely my favorite or the two. The ground missions (invisible

Max Payne (PC) | Done!

A while back I had bought Max Payne 3 on super sale for my xbox 360, so I thought it a good idea to go back and play the previous two.  Even though I have the original xbox discs for Max Payne, and Max Payne 2, it seems that the backward compatibility was throwing up some hiccups for the original Max Payne.  Luckily Humble Bundle had it on super sale ($2?) so I got it for steam.Max is a

Assassin's Fail...

Ubisoft was having a sale on the UPlay store recently.  Since an Xbox One is not in my near future, I decided to get the Assassin's Gold Pack (on sale of course) which included both Unity and Syndicate.  After about 2 days of downloading Unity (approximately 50GB) I discovered that the game is unplayable on my Surface Pro 3.  Even on the lowest settings (which I was pretty content to

Assassin's Creed Chronicles : Russia | Done!

добрый день товарищ!Man...that's DONE!  Holy smokes!  What the heck?  Whaaaaaat?OK... I guess that I need to collect myself better before writing posts and game reviews.  I just finished playing Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (just now for me, a few days ago chronologically) and all I have to say is "Effff yoouuuuuu!"  This game was one frustrating piece
