Shadow of Chernobyl on a Laptop ( 1.0006 )|
Well...here it is September and I never got back to my Laptop Game yet.
Here's why: ( talking about the Call of Chernobyl Mod - 1.4.22 version )
I enjoyed my Monolith Game so much ( getting in character and patrolling the northern stretches of the Zone ) that I realized what I liked to see was doing the start and finding the armors, weapons and supplies I desired. It wasn't necessarily about going to every level and doing suicide missions into areas far from home, far from weapon and armor repair and far from adequate supplies to maintain a campaign of territory expansion.
It was just the simple things. Find the three levels of toolkits. Find the best artifacts. Find the best armors. Get the weapons I favored. For that reason I ended up playing shorter Games with the focus on how it was to be the Faction that I was playing and to enjoy the beginning. Living the life of a Faction member...not assuming some character and rushing through the well known start-to-finish tasks.
My current progress is...
Call of Chernobyl 1.4.22: ( all days are in Game Time not real time )
- Loner Game: 90 days
- Monolith Game: 60 days
- Bandit Game: 50 days
- Clear Sky Game: ( currently at 33 days )
Truly the most fun I've had so far, is for the first time assuming the roles of the members of other Factions. My 1.2 & 1.3 Games were all about the Loners. I've really, really enjoyed the Monolith & Bandit Games the most. If you haven't tried other factions than your favorite, I highly recommend trying some more if not all. CoC is the best.

It's funny how just my short time on the Laptop for a few months, I had already gotten used to the feel and key assignment of the laptop keyboard so much so that when I returned to my Desktop PC, I had to re-adjust my mindset. Since both used a Mouse, no problem there. Funny as I'm writing this now, my SoC Game stopped in Yantar, and my CoC Game as of last night was in Yantar.
