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 […]

Spotify playlists

It has been a long week at work and the main reason I’ve made it to Thursday evening at least has been the music I’ve been listening to which includes a quite different mix of music. Here are some more recent ones: Lazy Sunday 100 hits of the ’80s 90s gotta love it Grand Theft […]

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 […]

Game Over Month 2010 – final update

It’s now far into May and the GOM month is long over, but I thought I’d update with how far I eventually got. To recap, the Married Gamers Game Over Month is every April and meant to give you a chance to finish old games that are collecting dust on the shelves. I was going […]

Game Over Month 2010

This month I’m taking part in the Married Gamers Game Over Month or GOM for short. Started in 2009, Game Over Month offers gamers that chance to catch up on games that fell through the cracks or got lost in a sea of newer game releases. Games can be on virtually any platform including retro […]

Project365 week 1 – “Snowmageddon* is upon us and I can’t leave the house”

It’s the first week of 2010 and it’s been snowing for most of the time which has left me unable to leave the house due to living on slopey road and appreciating both my life and intact bones! The images and additional explanations of them can also be found on cat on tumblr: #1 – […]

Links I’ve been meaning to blog about for too long

The title says it all and some of these have been open in Firefox tabs for months! Can you predict review scores? – I can’t believe anyone thought this was worthy of a company! Maybe I should start a company like that and make money! Stop Telling Me What To Do – Lengthy [and I […]

Video Game soundtracks

JPLS’ post on his favourite game music got me thinking on what my favourite gaming soundtracks are and why. Game music is an integral part of the game playing experience so it’s hardly surprising that most of the game music I own is from my favourite games and it’s also probably not very susprising that […]

Say hello to an old friend – the Killerspiele discussion is back!

Those who know me know that I like to play video games. I like a variety of games, as the list of my favourite Xbox games shows, as well as many 360 games, such as Dead Rising, Oblivion, Mass Effect, Rainbow 6 Vegas and other games more commonly referred to as ‘kiddie games’. I have […]

GTA IV..

It’s probably the best game I have ever played. There are several posts with impressions over on ‘cat on tumblr‘ and more will follow. They are completely spoileriffic, so be warned! GTA IV – Day 1 – 2am GTA IV – Day 1 – 4am GTA IV – Day 1 – 11am GTA IV – […]

What I will be doing the next few weeks!

Many images follow!

The October ’07 digest.

October’s been a month in which I didn’t blog much again, but there were a few changes to the blog and my live. This is incase you missed any of it. I’ve moved, watched Heroes [amongst other stuff] and played too much Halo 3. This blog also has a new domain – carocat.co.uk Blame Halo […]

I’m going to be busy in the next few months…

… playing many games. Yep, it’s that time of year again, the Christmas rush is under way and many promising games are coming out. Sadly there are also way too many games I am looking forward to play, not to mention all the games that I am still playing, including Project Gotham Racing 4 and […]

GTA IV advert in New York

Rockstar and Take2 do love to provoke. After receiving some rather bad press last week on how New York politicians don’t want to see the game being set there, they now retaliated by placing a massive GTA IV advert in the streets of New York. Whilst that is just asking for trouble, I absolutely love […]

“Setting Grand Theft Auto in the safest big city in America would be like setting Halo in Disneyland”

It’s been less than two days since the release of the GTA IV trailer and there are already complaints about the game. “Setting Grand Theft Auto in the safest big city in America would be like setting Halo in Disneyland,” said City Councilman Peter Vallone, chairman of the Council’s Public Safety Committee. “It’s despicable to […]

GTA intros

This whole talking about GTA and GTA games has made me feel nostalgic about the intros which are always excellent. If you haven’t seen them yet, judge for yourself. There are no spoilers. :) GTA III: GTA Vice City: GTA San Andreas: I have not played the earlier ones, so I can’t comment on them. […]
