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 […]

Is gaming a chore?

I’ve gotten out of gaming in the past and I’ve in the past often had periods during which I didn’t game though they were mostly down to not having a 360. I got Skyrim on the PC [well, my laptop] since the week of its release and have not played it at all this year. […]

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 […]

Happiness is..

..finding that the 360 hard drive with my games saves, particularly my Mass Effect 1 and 2 games saves, wasn’t stolen after all. Now I just need to read through my posts about Mass Effect 2 to remind myself what I’ve done when I last played it almost a year ago! Things I’d like to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Live Tweeting

So it’s E3 and the Microsoft press event. Everyone and their dog is excited about the new game announcements. So what does everyone do? They take it to Twitter. I think about 20 of the people I’m following are in Los Angeles at the event with another 50 or so watching the live streaming at […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dragon Age: Origins. Who would have thought a dog could save the world?

I’ve finally completed Dragon Age Origins and overall it’s the first BioWare game I’ve mostly not enjoyed, despite wanting to like it all the way through. The last three hours were painful and, although final bossfights tend to let me forget how much hassle they were moments after beating them, I still can’t forgive DAO […]

Mass Effect 2 – Oh yes, there was that whole saving the galaxy thing.

I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last played Mass Effect 2 and yet it feels much longer. I don’t really have any valid excuses either, though there was the annoyance of losing two hours of gameplay when my housemate picked up the game to “I’m not doing anything, just walking around talking […]

“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 […]

Just Cause 2 demo

This has been a must buy ever since I played and loved the first one. The general feel to it and the over top stunts possible were great and whilst I’ve never actually done everything of it, it’s always been a good game to go back on. The demo for Just Cause 2 came out […]

Xbox Live Indie games

The first time I looked at the Xbox Live Indie games section was only a couple of months ago. Before that I knew it existed and had heard of some games, yet never actually downloaded any. That changed when I first came across this post about ‘Office Politics’ on Joystiq. The video was brilliant enough […]

Mass Effect 2 – “Who observes the Observers?”

Continuing from where I last left the game I decided to finally complete one of the Liara missions.
