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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Goodbye Halo 2

Microsoft ended the Live support Xbox 1.0 game this week and one of those games affected was Halo 2, a game I’ve played far too much over the years. ‘Fear the CAT‘ lists close to 5000 games played though I assume my other temporary Gamertags probably add another thousand to that. Fear the CAT‘s final […]

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 […]

Gamer.

Went to see Gamer tonight and wasn’t all that impressed [hated it!], but there were a few things that I liked/recognised about gaming: During the first few scenes there’s a ‘teabagging’ bit which made me laugh. The cocky gamer. Society, the Second Life game in the film which, just like SL is very much about […]

Welcome to the TGI Friday edition of #TwitLight and it’s participant @chrisbrownsell! I first came across @chrisbrownsell a couple of months ago when I was […]

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 […]

Some statistics about the music I listen to.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned a few times that I absolutely love stats and my curiosity was sparked when I came across this post on tumblr. I’ve added some bits and removed others, however. Unless stated otherwise all the following exclude podcasts and audiobooks and I’ve excluded all songs that aren’t properly tagged and as such […]

Afrika

Over the last years I’ve never had much of an interest in another console than the Xbox or the 360. Sure, there are some games I feel like I’ve missed out on, such as Eternal Darkness on the GameCube and Bully on the PlayStation2, but in general all and more that I’ve wanted has been […]

November ’07 digest Part 1

Just incase you have missed it, this is what I’ve been blogging about in the first two weeks in November: In Gaming: Assassin’s Creed finally [?] out this week The wait is over and the game is finally out. Mass Effect Launch trailer The Mass Effect launch trailer is out and makes me want to […]

Couple of things

All of these have been sitting on my desktop for weeks and don’t really warrant an extra post: Gee, thanks for telling me I should stop spam! Via Halolcats. More one for the Halo fans! ;) I wish I remembered where this was from, I have no idea. The above is true for all FPS […]

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 […]

Blame Halo 3

This is an excellent parody on people that are playing too much Halo 3, myself included. Oh and as we’re on the subject of Halo 3, head over to my new ‘My Halo 3‘ page which has my stats and some screenshots. Cat EDIT: Came across the lyrics as well now. Enjoy!

I have the keys!

As of yesterday I finally have the keys and can start moving and setting up furniture. Not too sure if the actual move is something to look forward to, but the final result will be worth it. View of the fireplace and the mirror above it! Currently I am aiming to have fully moved by […]
