oh the mighty atom.... [24 Mar 2011|08:59pm]
ok, there is plenty I don't like about Bethesda games,
but I just love the atmosphere of New Vegas, and the music is just great :P
(so all is great until you talk to somebody, for the dull dialogs spoil most of the charm, damn)









and a bonus :)

Alpha Protocol [26 Jan 2011|11:39pm]
Alpha Protocol, 'Rogue agent on the run' espionage game :) just finished it :)
corrupted corporations and govement organisations, international conspiracies, terrorist groups and so on...
it received so many bad reviews but it deserves much much better, I loved it :)
there are flaws, true, it's unpolished, quite a few annoying bugs, poor enemy AI, graphics a bit outdated, but the great deep story, branched dialogs, interesting characters, and so many alternate paths your character can take, compensate more than enough for that to be a fun and engaging game, at least to me :) the biggest strength is the amazing illusion of choice, every decision made, or a dialog line picked, can dramatically change what's about to happen next :) and the consequences are not always obvious, A VERY GOOD and satisfying RPG :)

Try it!!!

a little recap:





and in similar mood, im really upset with my dad ehmm,;P because he didnt want to take me to the PZMOT gala dinner (yes finnally he managed to get there hehe) with him. And today, when he was watching Malysz on tv, followed by a studio commentary with Tomasz Gollob as a special guest, then Dad remembered that Gollob was at the gala meeting too (of course), what a shame! what a pity, come on Daddy! heh Daddy's lucky...

[05 Aug 2010|12:02am]
im gettign more and more stressed about this driving thing, I feel it will take ages, Im not so paralysed anymore when driving, but there is so many things I forget about or do wrong, bleh bleh... well ok, I'm still stressed like hell...

but I bacame sentimental too, I looked a lot on youtube for the old motor races I watched and was so addicted to as a kid :) with Ayrton Senna of course as my greatest hero, he remains to be one, the best driver ever... so pissed and sad even now, when I think of his unfair and untimely death... and I think myslef unlucky for buying a broken tv? no, I'm not unlucky, it's really nothing....

so, here I found something fun to watch, Senna driving a Honda sport model NSX
the camera shows both the stearing wheel and the footwork, it's like dancing!!!!!!





and there is also a brand new BBC tribute to Senna for his 50th birthday




and part 2

I didn't know Lewis Hamilton is such a funny guy, he gets crazy like a little boy at the opportunity of driving Senna's MP44 McLaren, a more powerful and faster car than anything we have in F1 today :P

music themes from games [11 Mar 2010|09:09pm]
OK, today was a totally unproductive and useless day, I feel awful about it :( I could have at least read a book, or something.... but anyways, I felt somehow stressed today and couldn't put my thoughts into anything usefull...
but as my thinking already headed in a direction of PC games, I made this useless list below, somehow the games I consider my top favourite also contain really wonderful music tracks, here is a little summary :)
next time I want to hear some of it, I just open this entry hehehe!

down down the riverside........ [11 Nov 2009|09:37pm]
ok, what i think i have now is - depression....
yes, it sounds stupid, doesnt it?
but i feel completely empty, before the defence all my thoughs were focused on getting there, having it over, done, finished!
but then it was finished, and one day later I got ill, and somehow I am still ill even after 2,5 weeks....
i think i have no motivation to get better :( i have no more goals, no plans and I have no idea what to do next :(((((( I'm afraid of making some mistake, for the moment I'm fighting for the unemployment money and watching serials on dvds.... Northen Exposure, Firefly, Cowboy Bebop........ all of them great...
but times passes by and i still dont know what I want or what to do ..... and i'm still tired...

black hole [28 Feb 2009|12:00pm]
well,
ill try to write a little update here, but then again im so stressed these past weeks i cant really think of putting any thoughts here....
im really worried about what will happen to me next, in a few months from now, and where I want to be, what I want to do and then how to achieve that... this kind of stress is not very stimulating for me, its more like blocking me, so I just want to sit in a corner and do nothing :(

OK< so my fellowship ends this August, I need to write up the manuscript at least six weeks before the defence...... which means I have very very little time, and still experiments to do... to make things worse my boss got pissed at me for unknown reason and is not speaking to me for the moemnt....
ok, then the idea of writing this thing up is simply scary grrr why the hell did I decide to do a PhD? what a ridiculous idea was that :(
but I guess things always look so bleak at the end... so lets hope i will survive these last steps as well....


as for other plans, I'm going for a one week workshops in Portugal, NOW, I have to catch the train to the airport in one hour, ehmmm, it is somewhere near Lisboa, but chances are I wont even see that city, as the timetable is pretty heavy this time, we sart the training tomorow on Sunday and continue till Saturday, what a nightmare grrrr :(
so im back on the 8h of March....

and I will come back home in Poland for one week during Easter, 10th till 19th,
does anybody want to see me then??? :)))

so ok, i need to get ready, but I dont feel liek going, as I said I dont feel like doing anything :( Im just incrediby stressed every single day and it doesnt feel nice... :(

OK see you!

[ mood | amused ]

wow, life's being hectic lately hehe
Sorry for no updates... :(


so just a few words to say that the trip to Shetland was absolutely fantastic!!! Even the weather was just fine!
:)
it's beautiful and wild there, people are ultra friendly, and there are plenty of strange animals and different creatures living there :) like Puffins, wild ponnies and seals :)))
justa pity we didnt see any whales..... but these are not so easy to spot I guess...

So Ok, of course I took thousands (literally) of photographs... Unfortunately most of them are crap :(
but I put some on-line anyways (first 2 galleries from the top):

Now I'm in Holland, attending Scientific Writing workshops.... and then I'm off to Morocco wehhhehe :) (I hope I don't boil-dead over there)

back to Paris [08 May 2008|09:35pm]
Ok, so Im back, but Ive already started to miss Scotland all over again, ehmmmmmmmmm

it ws a wonderful week, OK I know that here we have now like 25 degrees or more and sunny days and in Glasgow only rain, clouds and max 16 degrees, but so what? it's so beautiful there, so fresh, and people are way more friendly (not to mention that I can actually understand what they say hehe which is not the case here buu) plus their amazing gardens, the breathtaking nature, and cosy pubs.....
and the Guinness :)))

So yes, the lab work turned out fine, so I'm very happy, after the lab we were going out to pubs or cinema or whatever basically every evening, which is possible there as everything is so close! (here in Gif there is nothing and going to Paris is too much effort, ok? hehehe nobody does it anyways)
and on the WE I went on a trip into the Highlands with Bo, it was absolutely beautiful.... it wasnt even raining hehe, we went to Loch Awe, the longest lake in Scotland :)

I got some pics online at fotopic, if anybody wants to see them....
http://wintermute.fotopic.net/

and the "people shots" here:
http://wintermutespersonalgallery.fotopic.net/

I also put some pics from Parc de Thoiry, its the safari and zoo near Versailles, I went there a week ago with friends from the institute....

Oh, and somebody in Glasgow told me a terrible thing! that I'm begining to develope a slight French accent in my English! oh no, how can it be if I dont even speak French at all? I hope it was only a bad joke!!!!!

hehe

ok, see you later, :)
