Gaming memories – Condemned

Some of the recent nightmares I’ve had were sort of related to this moment in Condemned though the game most certainly isn’t the reason they have occured. I’m still not sure why I bought and played the game. I don’t like scary films or scary books, but particularly not scary games. For some reason I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

“They’re really annoying ’cause they just keep moving.”

A few days ago I watched one of my mostly non-gaming friends play several of my games. I call him a non gamer, as I don’t think Flight Simulator or Farmville are what I’d call games. He played UNO, BioShock and Kingdom of Keflings with mixed results. UNO: This was actually the most pleasant game […]

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 […]

On game completion

A while back I’ve had a conversation on Twitter with @PCurd and @jamesbmarshall: PCurd: @craigyd I bought Torchlight in it off your recommendation :) Also Kotor as I’ve lost my pc copy. # carocat: @PCurd KotOR again?! Aren’t your saves on the Xbox though? # PCurd: @carocat I have saves on 1.0, 360 and pc. […]

Gamerpicture history

I have been on the internet for about thirteen years now and quite early on I’ve realised the importance to ‘managing’ my online identity and keeping it in sync and recognisable. Googling ‘carocat’ in most cases leads to an online profile of me somewhere and I tend to use the same avatar in most places […]

Community, what are you doing?

Believe it or not, but I’m a very peace loving person and detest arguments and drama. Some have called me passive aggressive, but that’s a different thing! Over the past years I’ve seen a lot of internet drama which, seeing everything on the internet always has to be so goddamn serious, has destroyed entire sites […]

This dream I had that turned out to be true. Well, kinda..

It’s being said that we dream every time we’re asleep and just don’t always remember them when we wake up. I can count all the dreams I’ve had in the past year on one hand and they were all pretty strange with people that I know in different roles and situations acting completely atypical. I […]

Have I mentioned just how awesome the folks at 360Junkies.com are?

No? Well, it’s about time I did then! Back in February I saw the following tweet from Haymaker360j: The next person who signs up on 360 junkies and DMs me that they did will recieve a copy of F.E.A.R. 1 and 2 courtesy of me and the junkies staff Of course I did sign up […]

Some more links in the Killerspiele debate

After my other post looking into the debate to ban or restrict access to video games in Germany I’ve come across some more links that delve more into the topic, as well as some studies. Some are in German, so please use a translator. Der Markt verlangt nach Sensation [Zeit.de] – It appears that I’m […]

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 […]

Words escape me! [Gamertag change]

Last year I wrote a post on how to change your Xbox Live Gamertag after many people came to my blog searching for it. Since then I’ve had many people contact me with more specific questions, for example if it’s possible to get a name changed if enough people complain about it [not to my […]
