It’s been two years since I started playing Destiny, a game by Bungie, the original makers of the Halo series of games. It’s the only game that I have been this involved with for this much time, and today I still love it.
Back in September, after my PS3 died and I bought a replacement for it, I picked up a copy of Destiny with the new system (along with Last of Us, and GTA V). I blitzed through the single player story, and started doing some of the end game content. In the last six months, it… Continue reading Destiny Six Months In
When I think of the games that I loved the most growing up, LucasArts is the company that gives me the most warm and fuzzies. To me, computer gaming hit its peak in about 1999, and at that point LucasArts was the undisputed master. Shortly after, consoles would become the dominant player in the industry,… Continue reading LucasArts May 1982 – April 2013
Batman Arkham Asylum is a brief, brutal, and faithful look into the world of the Dark Knight Detective which succeeds on all of the levels that comic book games traditionally fail at. While it doesn’t add a whole lot new to the Batman mythos, it deals with familiar territory in a reassuring and respectful way,… Continue reading Game Review Batman Arkham Asylum
I was on Gizmodo several months ago when I came across an article on a man who has built his own video game arcade museum. It got me to thinking about another of the bygone things from my youth, the video game arcade. They were a product of the 80’s, really reaching their zenith around… Continue reading Relics of my youth: The Arcade
I’ll be doing some “Best of” lists over the holidays as I do every year when I look back on the year that was, best comic, best website, best gadget, and best movie are still to come, but this one is an absolute no-brainer. The best game for 2008 in my opinion totally ran away… Continue reading The best game of 2008
I picked up a PS3 a few weeks ago, and I’ve been playing quite a bit of PS3 since then, but I recently installed the New Xbox Experience on my 360, and I have to say that…ummm, wow. The PS3 is a beautiful piece of hardware, but the 360 is a much better experience overall.
I don’t know when it happened exactly, but at some point in the last 5 years, I stopped being a huge movie nut, and transferred some of that love over to video games. I used to read Premiere magazine, and Entertainment Weekly. I would surf Film Threat, and Cinematical, Rotten Tomatoes was a weekly pilgramige,… Continue reading How did games become my new movies?
Star Wars the Force Unleashed as a game is a good, but not great game. Star Wars the Force Unleashed as a cannonical movie is incredible. The gameplay at times is fantastic, but at times so broken and repetitive that it’s almost not worth playing through another level to get to the cutscene and story.… Continue reading Game Review: Star Wars the Force Unleashed
I managed to get a fair amount of gaming in this summer, much to my wife’s chagrin. The majority of it is all casual, or quick games that I can play for ten or twenty minute stretches in between all of the other stuff I do, but it’s fun nonetheless. Here’s my list of games… Continue reading What I’m playing – the summer edition
