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
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 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?

Here’s my list of games… Continue reading What I’m playing – the summer edition
GTA IV is out, I picked mine up on Tuesday, but didn’t get to play it right away. I’ve got a ton of stuff on the go this week, but I decided to make some time to play it anyway Wednesday night. This is the first new GTA game for the current generation of consoles,… Continue reading Initial Thoughts: GTA IV
Since the first three months of 2008 are almost over, I thought I’d go over the games I played this quarter, what got the most of my time, what I liked, what I didn’t, and what rocked my world (pun intended). Here’s the brief list of the games I played in the first 3 months… Continue reading What I played, Q1 2008
I’ve been playing Rock Band off and on since Christmas, and other than one night with the guys, we usually play just Char and I. We have a great little two person band ala The White Stripes going on we’re known as “Chip and the Dips”. The two of us have fun together rocking out… Continue reading Rock Band: Better with a group
