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 […]

Customer support on Twitter, the @XboxSupport and @BTcare examples

So it seems that there’s a problem with an XBLA game. A problem that occurs for one person out of the 663 people I’m following on Twitter, many of them gamers. The person takes it to @XboxSupport, the official Twitter account for all things Xbox. I don’t follow many companies on Twitter, as I’m fairly […]

The Tudors – The game [No, really..]

. I have played many games based on a film or TV franchise including Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Shrek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lost, Buffy and more. I would even consider some of them to be amongst my favourite Xbox 1.0 games. Games directly based on films or shows have to be fairly […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I have no bells!

Spending quite a lot of time playing games and even more reading and writing about them I sometimes forget just how strange some things can sound to someone who doesn’t. Someone looking for help with Animal Crossing: I read with interest your information about Animal Crossing. I am new to the game and am an […]

All about games..

As my internet wasn’t working properly in the last week, I’ve had a bit more time gaming which coincided perfectly with some new games I’ve been getting and others I’ve completed. Assassin’s Creed: As I mentioned in my ‘first impressions’ post I wasn’t too impressed with Assassin’s Creed. My opinion didn’t much change throughout playing […]
