Good morning guys; just a very quick update from me as to how things are over at Runz HQ. As is typical, just when I think I'm getting on top of regular news stories and frequent tidbits of information work (as in my real job) comes along and kicks me in the knackers. This is, unfortunately, why you see a hive of activity on the site and then hear nothing out of me for two weeks. I will as ever endeavour to overcome this and provide a much more scheduled product but as I'm sure many of you can sympathise my actual job must come first.
What else has been eating my time? Well since Civ 5: Gods and Kings was released I've been playing a fair amount of that and really enjoying the addition of religion, although the espionage side of things is really quite lightweight and tbh does not impact the game as much as I would have liked. More on that later this week.
The other thing taking my time is the gaming team. As some of you may or may not be aware I joined a gaming team earlier this year, one with very big aspirations particularly with the slew of mecha games coming out including Mechwarrior Online and Hawken which is where we want to focus our attention. Although initial recruitment had been slow but has increased significantly as both titles start to edge nearer to a release date. The North American team is now completely full although we are still filling out the roster for our EU team.
So if you have an interest in some competitive gaming primarily focused around Mechwarrior Online, Hawken and Reign of Thunder and you're in Europe then drop by the Steel Jaguars' Website, have a nosey and join us on IRC - if you like the cut of our jib then submit an application, if we like the cut of your jib then we'll notify you with an acceptance message. It's that simple!
