28/100 best games

Randomly came across one of those ubiquitous ‘Top 100 Best Games‘ lists earlier and ended up surprised at the number of games I’ve actually played. Having primarily owned the Xbox and the 360 and not played too many classics I always find I’m lacking a lot of essential games. Played games: 28 Completed games: 10 […]

Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 completed

I recently completed Mass Effect 2 and then straightaway played Mass Effect 3. In fact, Mass Effect 3 and my worry about being unable to avoid spoilers for any longer were the reasons I decided to buy a new 360 back in February and I am still surprised I managed to avoid spoilers for this […]

Gaming weekend

As I am on my way to work after a four-day blissful Easter weekend I’m torn between the guilt of not doing anything constructive that I planned and remembering the fun I had playing games for most of my waking hours. On Friday I spent close to 12 hours playing LA Noire, most of this […]

Star Wars: The Old Republic

I got very excited a couple of weeks ago when I received an email to the weekend beta testing for Star Wars: The Old Republic as it has been a game I’ve waited for a long time. I had never played an MMO before with the exception of free trials for WoW, Eve Online, Star […]

Need more soundtracks. Need them now!

Having just started a “normal” 9-5 job again I have discovered I’m in need of more orchestral soundtracks from either films or games. Whilst my iPod has over 70GB of music, a large part of it is unsuitable as it’s with lyrics which distracts me too much or, worse, could lead me to sing along. […]

How to play “Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords” on Windows Vista

Just over a week ago I wrote a post discussing my lack of gaming in recent months. Amongst other games I mentioned KotOR II: The only reason I replayed KotOR was to have it all in the back of my mind [not that I actually needed to!] to replay KotOR II. Which has issues with […]

Where have all the gaming posts gone?

Amongst several others there’s a draft sitting in my, well, drafts, lamenting on how I jump from interest or hobby to another to come back to it at a later time thus effectively proving my nomadic nature. In that post I mention gaming, but seeing I can’t find any inspiration to finish it I thought […]

Gamer Banter: A rushed love letter

Gamer Banter is a monthly gaming discussion of multiple bloggers. More info is here and please contact Terry from Game Couch if you wish to take part. May’s topic is set by Cat at carocat.co.uk: Which game character do you identify yourself with most/least and why? Today’s entry for the ‘You really shouldn’t do this […]

Dragon Age: Origins. Who would have thought a dog could save the world?

I’ve finally completed Dragon Age Origins and overall it’s the first BioWare game I’ve mostly not enjoyed, despite wanting to like it all the way through. The last three hours were painful and, although final bossfights tend to let me forget how much hassle they were moments after beating them, I still can’t forgive DAO […]

Mass Effect 2 – Oh yes, there was that whole saving the galaxy thing.

I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last played Mass Effect 2 and yet it feels much longer. I don’t really have any valid excuses either, though there was the annoyance of losing two hours of gameplay when my housemate picked up the game to “I’m not doing anything, just walking around talking […]

Mass Effect 2 – “Who observes the Observers?”

Continuing from where I last left the game I decided to finally complete one of the Liara missions.

Mass Effect 2 – “Oh no, here comes disc 2″

As soon as I started carrying on from where I left the game earlier I was prompted to change discs. Even though I know that Mass Effect 2 only uses the second disc for it’s middle section, or at least that’s what I remember reading, it’s still a sign that I’ve made considerable progress and […]

Mass Effect 2 – Some more thoughts

As I’ve mentioned in my last post I met Garrus and the conversation has been brilliant. Upon returning to the Normandy, Shepard smiled which is one of the first times Shepard has smiled all together and it was quite nice seeing it reflected what I was thinking, too. It is nice to see Garrus and […]

Mass Effect 2 – First Impressions

I finally started playing Mass Effect 2 Saturday evening and so far I am loving every second of it! Just over two hours in and I am in love with #masseffect2. I already don’t want it to end! So far I’ve done very little fighting and a lot of exploration. The following are some of […]

It’s time for Mass Effect 2!

Knights of the Old Republic is the game that got me into gaming. I remember playing it at work [in Spanish!] not understanding a word and not really knowing what was going on. All I remember is walking around in a beautiful environment talking to people and completing missions. Shortly after its release I bought […]

Links I’ve been meaning to blog about for too long [Part 2]

Just like my previous post I’ve again reached the point where my Firefox is slowing down due to the high number of open tabs with things I’ve been meaning to blog about in ages! Most of these are gaming related this time. In no particular order: iPhone Sleep Cycle: my nights with a strange bedfellow […]

Things I’d like to see improved in Mass Effect 2

It’s only eight days to go until Mass Effect 2 is released and due to it including a character import I’m playing through the first one again to create the ‘perfect’ save. Ideally I want my character to be a female level 60 soldier with paragon alignment and all sidemissions [bar the planetary collection ones, […]

Dragon Age: Alistair

BioWare’s writing has always been brilliant and Dragon Age is no exception. In addition the voice cast is the most divers and almost best out of all their games. It would have been the best if Raphael Sbarge [Carth Onasi, Kaiden Alenko] had a part, but I digress.. Apart from the well written main quest […]
