Leave Diary D1 – A Day of Recovery and Into the Hellgate Abyss

Since I am not taking an oversea holiday during my 2-week long holiday, I thought it is a good idea to start a journal. Otherwise, two weeks would go by and I would have done … nothing.

Since last Monday, I have not been feeling well. Doctors said it was viral fever. That is to say, no antibiotic required.

I am not a fan of antibiotic. But I have to admit the last time I was sick – not too long ago – and I was given antibiotic. I had recovered within days.

The perk of being sick – if I could even say it is a perk – is that I get to sleep a lot. My work is demanding (whose isn’t in fact here in Singapore?). The hours are long. There isn’t much time to unwind. And even in the middle of the night, I would wake up stressing over something at work. Since I am not feeling well and I am on a 2-week long break, I get to sleep a lot. So much so that my head it aches.

And that feels so good.

Long story short, I woke up in the morning feeling terrible. I went to bed at night feeling fine. So it was a day of recovery, a reminiscence of that feeling of feeling hopeless when you are in a tough situation and when you get out of it, you don’t even recall the hard time.

My summoner has taken down Oculis in nightmare difficulty.

Last entry I have talked about Hellgate: London getting a release in Steam. It is a 11-year old game – one that I was used to play in between jobs. I did not get to finish the original game. Since its recent release, I have spent close to 90 hours playing it. For a game that I have paid less than S$10, it is money well spent.

This version of the game does have it issues. But by and large, it runs. And it is perhaps the best and the most complete version that this franchise has, which includes:

  • Hellgate: London – completed.
  • Stonehenge – almost completed.
  • Second Attack – completed.
  • Abyss – completed.
  • Hellgate: Tokyo – not started.

One thought on “Leave Diary D1 – A Day of Recovery and Into the Hellgate Abyss”

  1. I played a bit of it during the original release.

    I tried again recently but I cannot get into it sadly.
