Splinter Cell Conviction was a bad purchase

I bought Splinter Cell Conviction as I felt that, as a Splinter Cell fan, I really should play it. Two levels in and I am incredibly angry at the game, the developers and mourning the loss of a fantastic series. I should have listened to myself.

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 […]

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 […]

Blog Banter

Over two years ago bs angel started Blog Banter: Blog Banter is a group of bloggers passionate about video games. We enjoy getting together once a month to write about the same subject. You will be amazed at the different viewpoints so many people can have on the same exact topic. I took part twice: […]

Splinter Cell Conviction demo

It’s no secret that I love the Splinter Cell series from the first one through to Chaos Theory and the natural progression through to Double Agent. SCDA is definitely my favourite one of the series, as it’s evolved just enough to keep the gameplay fresh whilst at the same time keeping the known control layout […]

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 […]

Project365 week 2 – “The big freeze followed by the big thaw then some more snow followed by rain. What’s going on?”

It’s week two of my Project365 and another week featuring mostly pictures taken in and around the flat. The few times I have left the house I didn’t come across much worth taking a picture of and twice I nearly forgot to take one alltogether which explains the pictures of whatever I was watching or […]

Welcome to another edition of TwitLight and today it’s all about a drunk person that, well, drinks too much! Yes, you’ve guessed correctly, he’s at […]

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 […]

Signs that I’m more or less going crazy..

So yes, I’m not too sure just where this conversation went wrong, but it’s quite obvious that it did go very wrong. Sometimes I worry myself! Cat says (21:47): Germany is driving me completely insane Matt says (21:47): Oooh Matt says (21:48): I don’t think it’s just Germany Matt says (21:48): I’m going quite insane […]

Review: Splinter Cell Double Agent

Looking through old files on my PC, I’ve come across this, a review of Splinter Cell Double Agent I wrote for Ignition in November last year. To read the version with the pretty pictures [it's worth it!], head over to the Ignition site and download it. Splinter Cell was a game that contributed to defining […]

Games

Everyone constantly asks me which games I’ll get, so this is a list of games I’ll get til the end of the year: Rainbow Six Vegas. I’ll aim to get this on release (24.11. or 1.12.) and can’t wait to get into it. I loved the previous R6 titles (bar Lockdown) and the demo for […]

Splinter Cell Double Agent revisited

I’ve noticed an increased number of people that find my blog by searching for the term ‘Splinter Cell Double Agent crashes’ and then end up at this post. There are a few things you can do in that case if you’re on the 360 version: 1. If you have a crash and reboot the 360, […]

5090…

In other news I finally reached 5k Gamerscore. Admittedly cheaply with King Kong, but the game punished me enoug as it really is crap. So I have won 2 bets. One with a Matt from work (I can’t wait until you fulfill your end of the bargain, although we might need to modify it slightly […]

Xbl stalker…

Well, I have an Xbl stalker. Again. Yes, some of you may remember the last one I had a while back, but that was solved simply by blocking the guy. This one isn’t so easy to get rid of. He has been sending me Friend Requests of so far 10 (!) accounts and keeps sending […]
