I used to write blogs trying to write blogs. They're gone now, hidden from the world. I'd rather write with a bit more feeling. It's going to result in much less information being delivered with a lot more rambling, but isn't that better?
I also do the FNF thing. Talk to me if you want to be a part of that.
Some knew it was coming, but now I am too. While ZOE 1 remains sadly unmodified, the horror show that was ZOE 2 HD has been patched, though to call this sort of change a mere patch, I think, does not do the improvement justice. I got a call from work because an admin for one system had decided to fuck around with a system that wasn't theirs and fucked up a web server. That's not the best way to start a day, but it soon got better.
Rather than go back to bed for an hour and a half, since I was already entirely awake from dicking around in Remote Desktop, I started to browse. I had been at it for scarcely a minute before I saw this news. Coinciding with the equivalent of a "greatest hits" release in Japan and, conveniently, the PSN sale of the downloadable versions here in the US (sorry Europals, I don't know the status there) a five hundred-odd megabyte version 2.00 patch has been released. It does everything. Of course, with nothing better to do at that hour of the morning, I had to try it for myself.
ZOE 2 (and, you could say, ZOE 1 as a package deal due to the cliffhanger ending) is one of my favorite games from the PS2 era, if not simply over all and I am not disappointed. If you wanted to play this †in HD but were unhappy with the performance, give it another try. Do it. Hexadrive is staffed by wizards.
