Back from my long, unwanted internet hiatus. It was terrible. Can you imagine the torture? Thankfully, gaming has kept me sane all this while.
I know I promised some of you that I would write on some very important things. Now that I am back to bumming (yes, after two years, I am back), I should have every chance to write.
However, with keeping myself sane, I acquired an addiction at the same time - to BFME. BFME or The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth is an RTS game not unlike Age of Empires, Age of Mythology, Battle Realms, and Warcraft III. If you loved playing AOE back in high school (if you are my age), and loved the LOTR films, you are going to love BFME. As a huge plus, if you loved reading the appendices of the LOTR books, you are going to love The Battle for Middle Earth II – which focuses on the War of the North away from the pesky Fellowship. And it gets better. BFME2's expansion: The Rise of the Witch King is based on the events before The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings – taking you into the history behind Angband’s rise.
My addiction has run so deep that I have dreamt nothing but my conquests of Middle Earth. And I have not even gone to playing BFME2 (which I am dying to play). Unfortunately, the game does not accept MX400 video cards (of which I have currently installed). By Sunday, I hope that my father (who is the real techie) would have finished upgrading the PC so I can also play Conquest.
I just love this. I feel young again! Goodbye professional, premature grown-up! For now.
