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 […]

Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2

I recently completed Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 or SWTFU2. I mentioned it very briefly before. I played the first one shortly after its release and was surprisingly enjoying it very much. The Euphoria game engine coupled with the ability to let loose with a lightsaber worked very well and the difficulties were well […]

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 […]

Saying one thing yet doing another!

I have noticed several times in the past that once I write a post about losing interest with something I suddenly find myself interested again. As it just happened with gaming. Last week I wrote a long post on how I’m not interested in gaming these days and how I’ve lost interest in gaming journalism […]

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 […]

Why do tweets about alcohol always get the most replies?

Surely it would indicate that most of my followers may have too much! Here’s the previous time a tweet about alcohol got quite a few and this is what I got yesterday. . How long does a screwtop bottle of red wine remain drinkable once opened? # . jhomerston: I’d say about 2 days, 3 […]

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 – 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s no secret to anyone that I love and use Twitter a lot. Some even say I abuse it, but that’s a whole different story! This post is a link post with ideas for applications, integrations, my guides and posts related to Twitter and a long list of people or sites everyone on Twitter should […]

Just incase you have missed it, this is what I’ve been blogging about in the last two weeks in November: In Gaming: Mass Effect – Thoughts after the first completion People always seem to deal in extremes, best and worst. Mass Effect – First impressions Mass Effect is a game I’ve been wanting to play […]

Mass Effect – First impressions

Mass Effect is a game I’ve been wanting to play for almost two years now. I finally managed to get it on Thursday and have been playing it A LOT since, but haven’t really touched on the main mission. Be aware, there may be spoilers to the sidequests. Initial impressions: It is a very big […]
