The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

I haven't blogged in a while, so I guess for no reason whatsoever, I shall make a BlogGametm!

I received 3* games as a direct result of the holiday season (inc. Dec 21st, my birthday), and your objective is to guess them, given the tales of my exploits in this 'ere blog post.

*Actually, it's 4, but the fourth was bought online and hasn't arrived in the mail yet.

For every correct exploit matched to the correct game, you get 1 point. 5 for each game.

The exploits are listed below:

Driven through a building.
Played fetch with my dog.
Signed on with Yuan Shao.
Bought a house.
Befriended Guan Ping.
Piloted a Walker through a building.
Sledgehammer-ed my way through a building.
Fired rockets through a building.
Got Lu Bu to rebel by beating him. 3 times.
Got married.
Had a kid.
Bought Red Mare.
Racked up 2000 kills in a single match.
Blew up a cruiser.
Acquired Hal's Rifle.

Eureka!: Finding that rare game you wanted
Posted on Wednesday, July 22 2009 @ 19:55:31 PST

We all know the feeling.

You're browsing the website/looking upon the shelves of your local gaming retailer/eBay, and you find... it. That rare game, that classic you always wanted ever since you rented it once or twice, and since had become so addicted, that you sang its praises to everyone who would listen (and a lot of people who wouldn't)

That's normally when you realise either:
a) You're flat broke
or
b) It's just out of your price range.

Suddenly, that excitement you felt turns to anger and spite, cursing the world, the store, the whole Internet and/or the heavenly deity/deities that you worship for giving you such bad luck.

But, on the rare occasion that you have enough to purchase it, then the rest of the world just blurs as you, running on pure instinct alone, reach for your wallet, and pull out the cash/plastic. In a heartbeat, you're at the checkout. The next, you're at home, controls in hand as you start up the game.

That feeling, my friends, is the joy of cult classics. Their rarity only serves to heighten the feeling of euphoria you get when you finally come across a copy in your price range. Elevated above the crowd of mainstream, easily locatable titles, cult classics are unique in that, for most of us, they define our gaming experiences. Everyone's played Street Fighter and Soul Calibur, but a rare few know the pleasures of God Hand. The masses may know of the twin pleasures of Rock Band and Guitar Hero: World Tour, but only a handful know of the excitement that is Gitaroo Man.

Mainstream titles are fun, but cult classics are pure bliss.

Nothing to F.E.A.R. but F.E.A.R. itself?
Posted on Saturday, May 9 2009 @ 05:56:28 PST

So, I got F.E.A.R. Platinum Edition the other day (alongside Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, hey it was a bargain), and I thought it would be a pretty damn scary game.

Nope. Either I have more balls than most gamers out there, or F.E.A.R. is just a convenient acronym.

In my honest opinion, the AI was more scary than the set pieces. With their sheer tenacity, intelligence and sheer 'pop out from behind a corner you were behind and kill you' attitude, they tend to cause a lot of swearing.

Mind you, I got my own back once. One enemy ran to a corner to shoot from, except since he last spotted me, I had flanked him and slide-kicked his unaware ass into the wall.

F.E.A.R. may stand for First Encounter Assault Recon, but it could just as easily stand for Frustrating Enemies Always Raging.

Yeah, that sounded a lot better in my head...

Japan vs. The West: Who makes the better RPGs?

Before I get into any details, I am not referring to Rocket Propelled Grenades. No, the Russians have everyone beat on that regard. Instead, I am referring to Role Playing Games. In this article, I will compare Western R...   read more...

She fell for it!
Posted on Thursday, December 25 2008 @ 01:23:38 PST

Well, as stated in my last blog I had done a 'trick' with my mother's gift, and I am glad to say that it worked like a charm.

What I did is that she had asked for a particular book, even going as far as to tell me when said book was on sal...   read more...

Yup. It's my birthday again, and my brother once again pulled a fast one when it came to my gift.

Two controllers, one console: Is it worth it anymore?
Posted on Friday, November 7 2008 @ 23:37:44 PST

So it was my younger brother's birthday yesterday, and I wanted to get him something special. He's quite a gamer himself, and I thought a copy of Saints Row 2 would go down well. Unfortunately, I have only enough for half the game, but luckily he agr...   read more...

Either I've become jaded.
Posted on Wednesday, November 5 2008 @ 19:55:18 PST

...or Doom 3 just isn't scary.

Come to think of it, I can't really think of any time when I've been overly scared of a game. Ever. The closest I've been to being scared is Resident Evil 4, when you fight the Regenerators for the first time...   read more...

Huzzah!
Posted on Sunday, November 2 2008 @ 14:04:02 PST

Well, it's back. My 360 has returned from the bowels of Microsoft Tech Support (the Sydney branch, apparently) and is now once more plugged into my TV.

Pity I can't find the bloody batteries for the controller anymore. We redistributed the...   read more...
