After pre-ordering Rage for $60 and playing it on the PS3 I was a bit disappointed with the single player. Loading took way too long, often I would die and have to re-load back an hour of gameplay. The game was frustrating on the console. I found that the legends of the wasteland was fun for co-op, really fun, but the single player wasn't.

Recently I got it on the PC and I have to say its MUCH MUCH more fun than the console counterparts. Quicksave exists by hitting F5. The game is easier with a mouse which means I can actually hit things I shoot at. The graphics are nicer and the texture pop-in is less noticeable. I'm not entirely sure of all f the reasons why but Rage... Read All

Since this game recently went free to play I decided to install it and give it a shot because the price was right.

After a bit of downloading I installed the game and created an account. Process wasn't horrible and I was greeted with some options for creating an account.

I wanted to roll a Wizard or Mage so I clicked the EQ2 version of that. Couldn't play as that character for free so I clicked a less fun class to play. I honestly don't remember what I was bummed I couldn't roll a Wizard/Mage. I was then presented with a screen to pick some hair color and some other stuff I didn't care about. I clicked random as much as I could but it would have been better to just click... Read All

I just tried out the Final Fantasy XIII-2 demo. I have to say, this dude is annoying, kupo! I always thought Moogles were cute and amusing in the games where they didn't have any recorded dialog. They aren't supposed to sound like 8-year-old girls, kupo! The moogle is really useful to have around though.

Now, on to the meat and potatoes: This is a lot of fun. Random encounters are back, but they are easily escapable if you aren't interested in fighting. The preemptive attack is done much more cleanly, giving you the opportunity to attack before battle mode is activated.

Speaking of the battle system-- say what you want about FFXIII, there are plenty of bad things to say... Read All


Doom 3 is a game that I happily put on my most loved games list. I have played it through a few times now and every time really enjoy myself. Some people hate on the fact you cant use the flashlight and a fun at the same time. Some people hate on the fact that the game is dark. But both of those things are game mechanics that make the game even more unique and fun for me. For instance, when you are walking through the Mars base and its dark you can either:

A) Keep your shotgun handy and stay "safe" knowing you can shoot zombie heads off.

Or

B) Have your flashlight ready and see whats ahead while not being able to do jack squat when a demon starts throwing fireballs at... Read All


Graphics & Art:

From the first few minutes in you can tell that Diablo 3 is a Blizzard game. It's beautiful and well blended as you have come to expect from their games. I really enjoy the color palette and ambiance that has been created. I read initial complaints that it "isn't dark enough for the Diablo IP", but I am quite happy with it. Graphics are really only a small part of the game but I doubt anyone will be disappointed with the look and feel of the world.

One thing that I can't get past is the environment depth. It screams of Titan Quest - the altitude of cliffs, the depth of chasms. I really enjoyed the effect in Titan Quest and I'm glad to see it again.

I don't know what happened, maybe Battlestar Galactica happened, but I stopped playing this game before I finished it. I picked it back up over the weekend and realized just how much I missed it. The charm runs thick in LBP2, though not as much as its predecessor, probably because it's stuff we've all seen before. The polish is amazing, though, and the new mechanics and toys are fantastic.

The only thing I don't quite like is the community levels. Some of them are amazing, don't get me wrong, and this extends the replay value infinitely. The problem for me comes from the new tools. You can now make full-on games, not just levels in a platforming game. RPG's, space... Read All


Here it comes. Borderlands 2. I fully intend to get this day 1, and this time maybe I'll go PS3 since, surprisingly, everyone I know who plays the first one played it on PS3.


I was wondering what people had to say about the possible insinuation in Portal 2 that Chell is Caroline/Glados's kid by Cave Johnson.

It seems possible, but the game only references it in a few ways. Quoting off the Half-Life wiki http://half-life.wikia.com/wiki/Chell

"...information revealed in Portal 2 implies that Chell was the child of an Aperture scientist and was touring the facility on Bring Your Daughter To Work Day when GLaDOS took over."

Caroline and Cave Johnson had a relationship, which is implied in the game. It seems Caroline has a connection to Chell, possibly before she was transferred into the computer.

Anyways, wondering your thoughts about it.


Here are a few game soundtracks I have wanted to talk about:

Starcraft 2 Wings of Liberty: Got this soundtrack from the collectors edition bundle of Starcraft 2. I am not sure I love all the ways they mesh typical orchestral faire that moves to guitar that then moves to synth though. They do this in a few songs and I think they should just pick on motif and stick with it. Moving around that much in one song is jarring.

That said, its a great score and a few times I can hear people breathing in the orchestra so the mics at Skywalker Sound really hot that day.

The Binding of Issac: The score came with the steam game if I gave them like $2 extra. The score is really... Read All
