Blog: Dragon Age is here
Dwarf Rogue InquisitorThe new Dragon Age: Inquisition is finally here. Been playing it way to much and haven't gotten anything new done on the site yet.

Compared to the previous dragon age games, this one is more open, very similar to skyrim. Lots of interesting sidequests to do in addition to the epic main story. And as usual in dragon age, lots of interesting characters to talk to, both on mission and in between.

Right now I'm playing a dwarf rogue (pictured to the right) but I'm already planning my next playthrough, this time as a warrior. Haven't decided on a race yet, but either a human or a qunari.

I've added a few screenshots in the gallery under dragon age folder from the new game. It's a beautiful game, the new engine really makes it feel much more alive than the previous one, where it all felt very flat and stale. The level designs are really nice with lots of complicated and overlapping terrain.

And best of all, it's now possible to jump!

Blog: More functions returning
My admin interface is back, so I'll have an easier time posting new stuff. Also fixed the banner rotation with all the quotes from v.3, and now the real quote with attribution is shown in the footer. I also added some random stats in the footer, like number of opinions and tags and such, with links to the relevant page.

As noted in the last post edit, the tags and tag cloud are back up as well.

Still left to do now: Blog Archive by date, comments and a boatload of opinions.

Here's a short sneak peak opinion for now: Just read the new Robin Hobb book, Fool's Assassin and it's awesome! Unfortunately it ends in a big cliffhanger (first book in a new trilogy).

Yay, the new look is here! Only took about a year from start to finish. The tag system, archive and comment functionality is not online yet tough.

I also have a huge backlog in opinions... It's going to take a while to get back in sync.

Edit:
Tags fixed!

Yeah, still here, just slacking with updates. The opinion backlog is getting really long.

I'm currently working on a redesign of skallen.net. A little wider and cleaner, more suited for todays high-res screens smiley. Will be ready for next month.

Been experimenting a bit with night photography and light trails. Still learning, and most images are crap, but I managed to take at least some decent images, uploaded in the gallery. Here's one for the front page:

Well, the year is not quite over yet... but not that much remaining and I've got nothing else to write about.

It started out great with expanding the opinion system with new features and even a new category. Also a new wallpaper. Then I got sidetracked by to much gaming and haven't really done anything more for the site since then. Still have a few wallpapers I'm working on but they aren't good enough yet. Maybe one more in 2012 as a Christmas present smiley

Russian IS-3, from World of Tanks

To liven up things a little I added a new 'World of Tanks'-gallery, and the screenshot above is one of the new images. Plan to add more as I play and get some cool scenes. Just played my 8000'th match, so you could say I'm pretty addicted smiley.

Also currently replaying Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2, one of the best computer RPGs ever. And it's still an awesome game!

Well, not much new since last time, but here's a picture of a frog at least:

Yes, this is a frog!

I've somewhat started working on a new game, this time work android. Not much to say about it yet... stay tuned.
