The Last of Us
Excellent gameplay, an incredibly intriguing story of survival and hope, and the most impressive visuals of this console generation; The Last of Us is nothing short of a masterpiece.
I Knew I’d Love Resident Evil 5
The Resident Evil series is one that you either love or hate. There doesn’t seem to be much in between, and for obvious reasons such as strict control schemes, odd camera angels, and a clunky inventory system that make Resident Evil 5, like it’s predecessors, feel a little out-dated. My first venture into the RE […]
Resident Evil 5 Control Schemes = Failure in North America
When the hotly anticipated Resident Evil 5 demo hit the Xbox Live Marketplace early last week, I added it to my queue first thing in the morning so I could play as soon as my work day was done. Being a long time fan of the series, and having played through Resident Evil 4 at […]
My 2008 Gaming List from Top to Bottom
Aside from a couple of the big guys in the gaming industry, I don’t indulge in year end top XX lists. In fact, I’ve hit “mark all as read” in my feed reader more times over this past week than I likely did over the course of this year. But for some reason, I felt […]
In Good Company
While my history with the Battlefield series has its ups and downs, my experience with Bad Company has been on the up side of things from the get-go. While many things have changed, it still feels very much like a Battlefield game. Even the single player campaign plays like a multiplayer game – when you […]
Music From the Battlefield
I’ve had mixed emotions towards the latest installation in the Battlefield franchise, Bad Company. Mostly due to my history with the series. I played Battlefield 1942 to death. Battlefield Vietnam saw quite a bit of action on my old PC gaming rig as well. By the time Battlefield 2 came out, my PC was a […]
Taming Mail and Bulletproof Backups
About a month ago, I went on a productivity binge. I knew there was room to improve my workflow, so I began evaluating the tools I use and how I was using them. At the same time, I stepped back from my 24″ screen and had a good look at my iMac. It’s been just […]
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
The fact that I bought my PlayStation 3 back in August and have only owned a total of 2 games in that time is a little unsettling. What’s worse, is previous to last week, I only had Warhawk in my collection as I had traded in Resistance a couple months back. Needless to say, my […]
Assassin’s Creed is Consuming My Life
Tuesday, November 13th was an odd day. The long awaited and highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed was released and the reviews started to make their way online. The way it all played out was what made it odd. 1UP seemed be the first to get their review online and it made its rounds like wild fire. […]
It’s a beautiful thing when a game that has been hyped up over the course of a couple years truly delivers. BioShock does just that, and much more. No one could really for-see how this game would pan out. From the first cinematic trailer where we witnessed the main character pull a young girl out […]
“Are Your Sure You Want To Delete Your Profile?” Yes… I Mean No! Nooo!
I couldn't tell you how many times I've referred to myself as "idiot", "moron" or "tool" tonight. First off, let me preface this story by reminding you that I moved at the beginning of the week and have been spending every day since getting our new place up to speed. That's meant lots of late nights and hours on end of un-packing and settings things up. Needless to say, I'm totally wiped and physically exhausted. We're in good shape now, but it's definitely been a tough week. Regardless, I'm a total idiot and I wish it was physically possible to kick myself in the face. Here's why...
I’m Actually Having Fun Playing a Splinter Cell Game
I've played every Splinter Cell game in the series so far, but Double Agent is the first one that's grabbed me like this. Previously, the farthest I got was the third or fourth mission in. I simply lost interest. There was no real story and it seemed to jump around so much that it ended up confusing me instead of enticing me. I need more than just stopping bad guys to keep me interested. And Double Agent has done just that.
