Virtual Tourist – Deus Ex: Makind Divided 3/26/17

Mornings!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Super creepy fortune teller machine at the magic shop. Futuristic but still as disturbing as these things sometimes look. lol.

Inside the lobby of Palisade Bank. Not a money bank, but a data bank. A really neat place!

This is a moving/undulating ceiling in the bank. So cool!

So posh! Like a canyon wall with a waterfall.

Neat turbine/motor system in the basement.

In the sewers. Poison gas all over the place!

An old station that’s been closed. Possibly from two years ago when the augmented went mad.

Sneaking around at a regular train station. Love the neat visual effect of the ceiling tiles.

The name of the restaurant was too funny. Love the look, though! And I’d eat there.

This was rather disturbing. No?

Hope you have a great Sunday! Next weekend

Next weekend, ChibiChains and I will be at Fan Expo 2017!  Mark Hamill! Tim Curry! Vampire Diaries guys! And I probably won’t see any of them. Heh. But will try to share cool costume pics through Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest. 🙂

Virtual Tourist – Dishonored 2 3/12/17

Morning! Hope you’re having a great day so far!

Dishonored 2

Neat horsehead!

I do love that sky!

Lovely floor! I do so love details!

Butterflies!

That is one odd looking baby gator.  Look at that tail!

A flashback scene as I approach a healing center on a separate small island.

And here is the reality. Neat how they did them in different art styles, no?

Electric carriage. It’s a weird contraption. Only seats one, maybe two people.

View back towards the city from the island. A better look at the rail system for the carriage.

Lovely and a little creepy all at once. Love it!

Have a good one!

Virtual Tourist – Deus Ex: Mankind Divided 3/5/17

Morning, all!

Dues Ex: Mankind Divided

This picture is of something quite cool. As I was walking away from the station, I heard a conversation. It was the couple standing before the statue asking this guy to take a picture of them with their camera. What a lovely detail!

Super modern park near the data bank. You can see old fashioned buildings in the background. A mishmash of new and old.

Palisade Bank – very futuristic. Lots of imagery showing one thing but meaning something else.

Local gang boss and his underground casino. Not a nice guy. Double crosses his clients.

Customer’s blacklisted from the casino. My buddy is in the upper right. His confiscated goods are something I need.

Inside an expensive and modern apartment building. Love that lamp!

Someone is in dire need of a housekeeper!

Small park inside the apartment building. Nice, no?

Love the funky wallpaper. The weird layered deer head and the hanging ornaments was a little strange!

View from the apartment. You can see one of Palisades’ memory data storage locations. The buildings are quite awesome.

All right! Made it! Hope you have a great Sunday!

Virtual Tourist – Dishonored 2 2/26/17

Greetings, all!

Yep, totally not keeping up with anything this week. 🙁 Did finally close Dec 2016 at work – yay! Now it’s time for all the reports for the auditors and the dreaded Flux. *shiver* Oh and catching up on January close. Why 2017? Why?!

Dishonored 2

Side view from the ship’s deck. I’m about to take my first trip to the mainland.

The captain gives me a few bits of advice as she prepares to drop me off.

Look at those mountains!

The buildings and people have had it rough here.

Delilah has wasted not time in making sure I get hunted down.

The streets are filled with blood. Blood from the whales they slaughter here. Pestilence lurks everywhere.

View back out to the bay from a balcony. Love that sky!

Yeah, she’s wasted no time at all.

Forlorn looking painting, no?

In the first game, there were rats everywhere spreading contagion. Now it’s red flies. This is one of their nests.

Hope you have a great day!

Virtual Tourist – Deus Ex: Mankind Divided 2/19/17

Ugh! Missed posting since I was at ConDFW last weekend and this time it was due to a 14 hour day at work! Boo. Hiss! Hiss!

Anyway….

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Magic shop! A cool place and also has vital info for one of the sewer adventures. 😛

Here’s a pic of the inside. Notice the magic fortune machine to the right.

The shop owner and former hypnotist.

Entrance to one of the subways. See how it’s a credit card ad? Hee!

Kidnapped and imprisoned paper forger. If you look closely at her shoulder, you’ll see she’s wearing plastic see through sleeves!

You can see them even better here. Almost looks like a mirage. 😛

Statue sitting outside one of the other subway stations. Love the clock tower!

Love that poster! lol. And the super modern look of this station.

This view is looking back at the station from the outside. Better view of the statue too!

No, he’s not dead. Couldn’t figure out a way to talk to him, though, so had to knock him out. The guy on the floor is the master brainwasher of the sewer cult.

Hope your Sunday is peaceful and fruitful!

Virtual Tourist – The Testament of Sherlock Holmes 2/5/17

Morning!

Touring an older game today – The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. I’d played the game after this one a year or two ago, so when it’s predecessor came up on super sale on Steam, I couldn’t resist. It’s taken me a whole other year to get to play it! Gack!

This is Sherlock. Currently at the house of a Marquis looking for a missing necklace. A simple case that ends up getting complicated after it’s solved. Dum dum DUM!

The game has voice over and text. Plus each conversation is saved and can be looked at again if needed. I love all the awesome detail. 🙂

The game gives tips during this first crime, which is very nice! (Coolest aquarium ever right?)

So pretty!

And analyze you will!

Player Interface screen. It is currently showing the city map. You click on the round icon to choose to go there.

Watson is there as well. You sometimes get to move him around instead. And there’s also Toby! Woot! (Something I loved from the previous game I played – you get to be the hound for a case! Heh heh)

Murder of the Bishop. The plot thickens!

Such lovely stained glass windows! And the solar is beyond the doors.

Hope you have a productive Sunday!

Virtual Tourist – The Vanishing of Ethan Carter 1/29/17

Survived another week, yay!

Realized I’d forgotten to share more pics from this game.  Can’t have that! It’s so pretty!

Vanishing of Ethan Carter

They do have the most gorgeous skies ever!

A flashback into Ethan’s past. Kid’s fort now turned super creepy.

The woods that are in the back of the small town.

An odd cemetery and church nestled in the woods.

The side of one of the crypts.

Front of the crypts. With all the rocks it looks like graves were hard to do, and so they created vaults?

A vision of the cemetery. There’s something I need to find.

The church by the cemetery. It has a Viking vibe to it, no?

Grave marker?

Front of the church. With a good view of the bell tower.

Hope you have a fruitful day!

Virtual Tourist – Dishonored 2 1/15/17

I’m half asleep this morning. Let’s see if I can be coherent. 😛

Dishonored 2

Leaving Dunwall and heading to Karnaca

Emily has just met the Other. My daughter refused his powers (she’s crazy!) I did not. So like my father, I’ve been branded by his mark.

Emily already looks matured by her experiences. All side info or flashbacks are done in this style.

Lower hallway in Meagan’s ship. Well worn.

My first view of Karnaca. Look at that sky! Gorgeous! And the water!

View of Karnaca from the other side of the ship.

A more inland pointed view from the right side of the ship.

The main meeting place on the ship. The two boards behind Meagan fill up over time as we figure out targets and things get done.

In the last game, the problem was the plague and rats. This time around it’s blood flies. Too much glare to show you a good pic of them yet, though.

Look dead center on top of the water – a whale!

And here it is diving! What a sweet and unexpected little treat!

Stay warm out there!

 

Virtual Tourist – Final Fantasy XIV 1/8/17

Morning!

Final Fantasy XIV
Lancer Class

So much anger in this one… Poor guy.

My armor. Got it colored. Came out pretty good, no?

From a different angle.

And another. lol.

Had to get the new armor to go back and finish this. 😛

Truly tragic that it ended this way. 🙁

And I graduated

Awesome looking castle no?

That’s some super fancy Chocobo armor, no?

Deepvoid Deathmouse

Hope your Sunday is nice and toasty!

Virtual Tourist – Deus Ex Mankind Divided 1/1/17

Happy New Year, ya’ll!

Happy New Year

Deus Ex Mankind Divided

Fountain area near one of the smaller train stations in Prague. Old and new mixed together.

Check out those tattoos!

Throughout the game, you will find electronic newspapers. Gives you a peek at how some stories are getting spun and what’s going on around the world. 😛

The Time Machine is an antique book store. It’s sad to see what the hoodlums did to it. 🙁

Hidden lab and hiding place for the guy who can fix my augmentations. Black market service.

The master himself. A little weird, but knows his stuff. 🙂

Augmentation screen. All the blurred ones are augs Jensen did not know where in there. Someone has been messing with his body without consent… Again! (Poor guy)

Cool 3D image, no?

Garden in the sewers of an underground cult. These poor people are brainwashed by continuous bombardment into their heads. 🙁

Another section of the place.

Hope 2017 brings you lots of joy!
