I’ve tried to get better at taking screenshots, though. Back when it first launched, Forge’s biggest draw for me was that it could take a screenshot of whatever you were playing. Then they went all Brittany Spears circa 2007 with their streaming to Twitch and dropped that cool feature, only having brought it back in a weaker form just recently. I now use Greenshot, a desktop app which allows for full screen or regional capture but also uploads to Google Photo where I archive all of my pictures.
Last night I went through what images I have from semi-recent forays and organized them into folders because my dumping ground directory was just that — a massive pile of unorganized images. I sorted the images by game, leaving me with a more profound sense of loss in seeing how few folders there are, and how few images per folder there are. Even now, a lot of screenshots in those folders are on-demand captures of funny dialog, attractive landscapes, or regions of the screen that I used to send to other people to explain something about the game, or to use in a blog post.
Looking at Greenshot, though, I realized that I should re-work the filename pattern to auto-sort the images into their own folders. This way, I won’t have to remember to sort them all into the appropriate bins and will have everything nicely organized for when I want access to those images. The key, of course, will be to remember to take those screenshots, because no amount of organization will be worthwhile if there’s nothing to organize.Read More »
Now that Shroud of the Avatar has stopped wiping it’s players, I decided to load it up and give it the old college try. It’s not an easy game to reckon with: it’s a sandbox in the purest sense, giving you no guidance in part because it’s a sandbox, and in part because it’s still not “finished”. Still, there’s a rhythm to the product, and I spent a few hours with the game on Saturday. Here’s a gallery of some select screenshots that illustrate what you can get out of SotA.
