Quickie

Wow. It’s been a while. January to June. The baby is a bit bigger now, and she has more hair. I have more grey hair and the same lack of sleep as before. I bought a new PC (named Big Blue, because it’s like the original Xbox (LOL it’s huge) and it has loads of […]

Grand Theft Auto (all of ’em)

Steam had a sale to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of GTA 3. The sale was for the entire collection of the main GTA games on PC for £5. I bought it before my brain had processed the signals my eyes received. Pure muscle reflex – anything GTA-related, I will buy it. I got Chinatown […]

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon

I’m staring down the barrel of a sniper rifle. The rifle is aimed squarely at the eye socket of a guy in a dugout up a small incline. He doesn’t know I’m there. I know he is there, though. I’ve known he is there for ten years.

Juice Eggs: (Gary) Numan’s Rev Ablution

*** NO SPOILERS WHATSOEVER *** Deus Ex: Human Revolution has something that a first person shooter, or a third person shooter, hasn’t really had in a long time. It is called a learning curve. In order to play the game as it wants you to, and to maximise the XP gains as you play, you’ll […]

Jew Sex: Human Revolution (again)

Something I love about DXHR is how some of the augments sound a bit shit, and you avoid them, and yet the creators have made at least one encounter in the game where a specific augment will make something fucking cool happen. For example, early in the game I got the “dual takedown” augment. Instead […]

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

I’m 14 hours into the game, currently infiltrating a laboratory. I’m pompous enough to deliver a (half-arsed) verdict already. THINGS THAT ARE WRONG WITH DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION: Level design. More specifically, the hub level design. Detroit, Shanghai etc. In Detroit, in order to go from his apartment to the police station, Adam Jensen has […]

Deus Ex

Since the sequel is upon us (and word of bloody good reviews is spreading on the net already), I thought I’d mod the original a bit and play it again. I had an old save from the last time I went near it, so I started at the bit where you are infiltrating what appears […]

The Old Man Post

Things that are pissing me off right now: Games that make you grind to get any decent gear. Like, for example, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which took me three nights to get to level 1 in multiplayer. Three fucking nights! To get to level one! And for my troubles, I got a machine gun that […]

The dog ate my homework

So I’ve gone without the internet for months, due to an argument with my service provider. More accurately, my service withholder, but whatever. What’s a guy to do when he doesn’t have access to Warcraft and as much porn as his eyes can process? This guy played pretty much ever game he had installed (or […]

The Witcher

I love The Witcher, and yet I hate it almost equally. I love how the characters and the game world are never less than charming, but I hate how the game makes me run across massive maps and then back, with all the loading that entails, just to hand in a quest. I love how […]

Morrowind

Oblivion was an overrated scrotum, filled with big old boring balls (one of which sounds like Sean Bean, the other Patrick Stewart). Should have been called The Elder Scrolls: Blandia. Almost like Bethesda ran out of imagination, and just decided to make the next Elder Scrolls game as stereotypically fantasy as possible, if you see […]

Windows

Windows is awesome. I mean, really. Could you imagine having to install today’s stuffed-DVD games in DOS? Would Valve have to make an OS2 Warp-compatible version of Steam? Windows lets you do all sorts of fancy PC shit all the time, and it’s ace. When it works. I’m one of them idiots that defends PC […]

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

Always loved the Splinter Cell series. The first game introduced the hide and sneak gameplay, the second game introduced the in-game plot twist (“Fisher! You have ten seconds, you have to trust me; shoot that woman now”), the fourth forgot all about the lessons learned above and the fifth turned out to be a game […]

Mass Effect sounds better (possibly)

I don’t understand. The first Mass Effect game had an awesome soundtrack. Ambient, but aslo sci-fi-ish. Always in the background, but always tickling your aural pathways when it had to. And *** spoiler alert *** the ending song choice was fucking inspired. The second Mass Effect game had a soundtrack provided by some orchestra, and […]

Ben There, Dan That and Time Gentlemen, Please

(NOTE TO SELF: DON’T POST ON HERE WHEN DRUNK AGAIN!) Something I’ve always wanted to do was to make a game. Just a little one. One that I could be fairly proud of, one I could point to and happily state “I made that”. One genre of games I’ve rarely got along with is the […]

Desktop Dungeons (part 2)

I’m drunk, so forgive me. Desktop Dungeons is one of the finest games I’ve played. Half RPG, half puzzler, half time sink, and half click-shit-and-it-will-die Diablo-a-like, the game is two halves too clever for it’s own good. And trust me, this is a good thing. I’ve been playing computer and video games (God bless Jaz […]

Magicka

Ignore the fact that the game has a cracking sense of humour. Ignore the fact it looks gorgeous. Ignore the superb spell-casting gimmick, the gleefully chaotic co-operative gameplay, the ability to create your own problems and / or solutions. Ignore all of this. Instead, think about the fact that yet another independent studio has released […]

EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW 2!

I’d intended to finish The Darkness last night, but Call of Shooty Duty appeared and made me giggle for a few hours. So here’s another preview of the EPIC MEGA POST that’s coming soon about The Darkness! Much like Jackie and his Darkness, I have a love / hate relationship with the game. Jackie loves […]

Back to Minecraft

After an extended absence, I’ve played Minecraft again. Started a multiplayer server, was on it for a few hours last night with Tensing. Was weird to realise I wasn’t shooting virtual people in the virtual face, cos I’ve been playing Black Ops constantly. Things to note about my slight return: Zombies. They still be cunts. […]

What Treyarch Got Right (and didn’t steal)

(well, I don’t remember seeing it on MW2, but I may be wrong) I think I’ve said this before on here, but I’ll say it again for the cheap seats – the multiplayer side of Black Ops pisses all over the multiplayer of Modern Warfare 2. It’s honed to perfection; the maps have much more […]

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath

Don’t be put off by the shitty title. Don’t be put off by the association with Abe’s Odyssee and all them games if they weren’t your bag back in the day. Don’t be put off by the fact that this is a very lazy port of an old Xbox game (the original Xbox too, not […]

Bioshock 2

Some thoughts on Bioshock 2, cos I just finished it 5 minutes ago. Spoilers will be liberally thrown all over this post. Whoever came up with the storyline is very clever, and possibly damaged in the head. I like how they’ve got past the “how do we top ‘Would you kindly?’ in this one?” by […]

The Ultimate List of 2011 (maybe)

Cos, let’s face it, it’ll be the same as last year but with better graphics. Best First Person Puzzle Game: Portal 2 by Valve. It will be amazing, but will be slightly let down by Stephen Merchant’s voice not suiting the game. Random thought while playing – “oh just fuck off, you Barclays-shilling bellend”. Best […]

The Ultimate List of 2010

Cos you don’t get enough lists at Xmas. Best Game That Is “a bit mental”: Norrland by Cactus. You can download the game from here. There’s also a trailer there, but it’s best to play the game and not know anything about it. Trust me. Oh, and it’s not safe for work or children. Or […]

Desktop Dungeons

Although Desktop Dungeons takes its theme from RPGs, it’s actually closer to a strategy game. You pick a race and class, and begin in a randomised dungeon. You start at level 1, and you have to kill things to level up to take on the level 10 boss. However, when you start the dungeon, you […]

Real Time Clickery

I’ve recently been replaying two real time strategy games (cos somehow I’ve lost my save games for both). Bear in mind, the last time I played one before these was probably the original Red Alert waaaaaaaay back when. And I was terrible at that, too. The two games I got are from the same developer, […]

Customer service

When I installed my current graphics card, I had a few problems.

Call of Duty: Black Ops – random thoughts (PC)

How come games are still being released with crash bugs? How come games that have a budget of Russia are still being released with crash bugs? Why does the screen go mental yellow whenever I alt-tab out of the game? Can whoever does the Call of Duty games now please remove the “hunt for the […]

SWAT 4, a proper write-up

SWAT 4 is hard. Proper hard. Difficult. Not easy. Each level is a situation where the normal Police can’t get in. You and your men have to get in, subdue all the criminals, subdue all the civilians, and generally make it all safe. You’re given a variety of tools and guns and grenades, you choose […]

SWAT 4 in the modern age

If you want to play SWAT 4 on anything higher than DOS, bear in mind the following points: If you want to skip the intro movies, don’t mouse-click your way through them, press Esc instead. On my Windows 7 64-bit Home Premiumy PC, if I mouse-click though, the game crashes after the intro if you […]

Plants, zombies, and a SWAT team

All games are based on you knowing something, and then acting on that knowledge. Board games such as Chess and Go give you all the information you need to make an educated decision; you can see every piece, you know all the rules, and you can predict the outcome of any given decision. Within reason, […]

Dead Space

Hmmmmm. Tricky one. A game that is meant to be scary as fuck, which actually isn’t scary in the slightest, and is nearer to Resident Evil than anyone would care to admit, and yet I’m really liking it. I’ve not got very far, but it’s been very enjoyable up to now. Speaking of Resi Evil, […]

Mapcraft 2 – The Embiggening

I’ve had a couple of blog posts in my head for a while now, and I am promising myself that I will actually type them up at some point. Until then, the awesome filler that is…. MINECRAFT ESCAPADES! Here’s the new map. Looks a bit different to the old one cos the Cartograph program has […]

Mapcraft

Fucking look at this! It is fucking amazing. Thanks to the powers of Cartograph, this is a (vastly cut down) annotated piccy of my current Minecraft world. It’s vastly cut down cos I went exploring in a boat a while back and the map is now huge but I’ve only made stuff on a small […]

Mass Effect – ur doin it wrong

According to Wired and Gamasutra, Jennifer Hale’s performance as the female Commander Sheppard is better than Mark Meer’s performance as the male Commander Sheppard, and players who pick a male Sheppard are missing out. I think there’s a contradiction between the two articles – the Wired piece ties in to the user data Bioware released […]

Minecraft – part 3

Bad news. The game crashed, and it deleted a quarter of my beloved castle. Good news! I rebuilt most of it. Bad news. There’s a section of moat which I can’t ever rebuild; every time I try, I reload the game and it’s gone. Good news! Fuck moats. It’s a wall, with a rollercoaster track […]

Minecraft – the gamey parts

Minecraft (the paid-for, survival, proper game version) has several borrowed mechanisms at its core. There’s the resource gathering and management, which is in every game ever (although the implementation is probably closest to RTS games like Command & Conquer, Dune II, Warcraft 1 & 2 etc). Construction is taken from Lego (I’m sure there’s other […]

Minecraft – my server!

From now on. Woot! This is also a reminder for me to see what Tom wrote in the water, cos he did amusing stuff last night […]

Minecraft part 2

Last time round, I said I was going to show you the mining part. One thing about Minecraft – just playing around in it gives you ideas on what to do next. I loaded it up with the intention of doing screenshots of the caves, but then I thought that my house was looking a […]

Minecraft

I was going to do a big thing on Minecraft, about how it’s definitely a game, but it also encourages creativity within the game space like nothing I’ve ever seen, and I was going to add all sorts of buzz words that I would make up to sound like I know what I’m talking about […]

Realisation part 2

Last agency mission in Just Cause 2. I accept it, and it says I’m finally going to kill that bastard Baby Panay. I’ll need the help of one of the three factions, so I should choose one to help me in the end game….. THREE factions?! There’s two! There’s only ever been two! I check […]

Realisation

Imagine the pre-credits sequence of any James Bond film. Imagine playing it in a game; every last-second dive from a falling car, every lazy parachute gliding away from an explosion, everything that made the first five minutes of James Bond movies awesome, all done by button presses that you made happen. That’s Just Cause 2, […]

More Just Cause 2

Sandbox games usually have a problem – they tend to need to appear realistic and grounded, and yet they also need to enable the player to go over the top and be excessive. A dichotomy, if you will (checks dictionary.com; that’ll do). Grand Theft Auto 4 leaned heavily towards realism; if you wanted to go […]

Just Cause 2

In between doing all sorts of daft shit in World of Warcraft, I’ve finally managed to get stuck into Just Cause 2. Just Cause 2 is a game in which the following things are guaranteed to happen (and not necessarily in this order): You see a car go past, and with one button press your […]

What I’ve Been Playing

World of Warcraft. Lots of it. Heaps. Tons. Stacks. I’ve been riding the wave of obsession / apathy towards the game since I started playing; I’ll obsess over it for a few months, get bored and leave it for a few months, rinse and repeat. I was finally talked into going back due to a […]

WoW + Pandi = comedy gold

“don’t start that healer shit you twat or I’ll kick ya now hurry up” “oh dear you died lol” repeat until fade I sometimes forget why I started playing WoW. After all, it can be a bit shallow and repetitive. The main reason I like it is that guild chat is essentially a chat room. […]

Counter-Strike: Source, now with added TF2

Had a nice little surprise when I fired up Steam this evening – there’s a new beta version of Counter-Strike:Source available. After installing it, I had a little trouble with the graphics settings, and the mouse settings, and I’d forgotten how to buy weapons and armour, but all that was swiftly resolved. MP5 in hand […]

Hello! For the record, I’ve not turned this blog into a linkdump. I’m merely waiting for inspiration to strike. I’m also waiting to break in my new keyboard, so that it actually types what I want it to, and not the general mash of keys my fat fingers aim at. For anyone who gives a […]

Left 4 Dead 2 2: The sequel!

Fuck. I hate stuff like this. You find something out, and it’s clever and funny and sweet and daft and ace. But, it’s also kind of a spoiler. As in, stumbling across it made it awesome. So for anyone who may have recently come across the game and is playing through it obsessively (just like […]

Left 4 Dead 2

I loved the original Left 4 Dead. Went through it a fair few times. Loved the atmosphere, loved the fact it could shit me right up, loved it. Then I put it to one side, as you do. Re-installed it the other week and fired it up again, and lo and behold! Free DLC stuff! […]

Mass Effect 2

Well! Having been floored by a flawed but also brilliant first game, I had high hopes for the second one. Edge gave it 9 out of 10, IIRC. Edge! A nine! They mean business! Sequels are a chance to take what was good about the previous game and polish it like fuck. They’re also a […]

Batman Arkham Asylum

(I was all set to do a massive post about Mass Effect 2, but I just couldn’t be fucked, so this will have to do for now) Batman Arkham Asylum is like Splinter Cell mixed with God of War, but set in a sinister as fuck mental asylum, but it has Batman in it. GOOD […]

Mass Effect – another post

Right. I’ve now finished this as both a goody bloke and an absolute arsehole. The reason I bought this game (and stuck with the shitty opening stretch) is that Mass Effect 2 is getting really good reviews, and it does something a bit different. It detects your saved games from the first game, and things […]

Mass Defect

Modern popular are (generally) not the creation of one person. Modern popular games are mostly made by teams which can number in the hundreds. When you look at a game, everything you can see was made by someone. The music was written and recorded and compressed and inserted into the game by people. People programmed […]

More Borderlands

I realised the other day that Borderlands is like raiding in World of Warcraft (or any other MMORPG, I’d imagine). Well, it’s like raiding without the tactics. And without thirty six other people. And in first person. With guns. What carries over is the stress. You worry that you’re in the wrong place. You’ve got […]

Mass Effect

I know this metaphor has been done before (and by vastly better writers than me), but it’s so very apt for Mass Effect. It’s like an abusive relationship – you stick with it for the occasional flash of happiness, but you have to go through so much shit to get to it. Starts off slow. […]

Borderlands – multiplayer

FINALLY got on Borderlands multiplayer last night. I could have gone on with randoms, but I wanted to wait until I could get on with chums. Chums tend to let you off for thieving everything really quick (like I did all night, sorry). So! Differences – the game is harder. Scales well, but the increase […]

Borderlands part 2

Borderlands

Borderlands is a mixture of FPS and (MMO)RPG, which is available on the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, iPhone and Atari 2600. I lied about the last two. I’ve been playing through the PC version (thanks Drav!) for a wee while, and although I haven’t got to play co-op yet, I’ve got enough of a grasp […]

How to beat WoW

World of Warcraft is the MMO with the largest player base. There’s billions of ’em. It’s the game that all new MMOs are held up against. It’s the game that all MMO developers and publishers are looking to beat, or at the very least steal a large chunk of players from it. For the last […]

Far Cry 2 is shite

I’m annoyed by how much the games critics have thrown praise at Far Cry 2 (or at the very least, not ripped the shit out of it). I’m also annoyed at my own lack of patience, so I’m going to be a bastard and rip the shit out of it. Here goes! There’s no story. […]

With regards to this post: Steam unlocked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 an hour earlier than I thought, so I got chance to give it a go tonight. Anyways, the point is, I now know what THAT moment is. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare had a bit in it where you played as […]

THAT moment

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (or CoD6). It’s available to play for Xbox 360 owners.

World of Warcraft – bad things

A list of things that aren’t especially good in World of Warcraft, in no particular order: Murlocs. They’re the biggest cheap trick in the game – they look cute, they sound silly, but they’re fucking lethal. Murlocs are always in large, tight groups, so you have trouble pulling just one. When you’ve got them down […]

WoWcraft

No doubt this will be one of many posts about World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft. It’s a fucker. It’s the elephant in the boardroom of any other MMOG publisher.

Call of Duty 6, Modern Warfare 2, Liverpool 0

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (to give it the correct title) is out next week. I loved the first Modern Warfare game. You can google it to get a billion blog posts about why it is so good, and they’ll all have better writing than I can muster. Loved it, but wasn’t in a […]

World of Warcraft

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack rogues on fire off the shoulder of Warsong Gulch. I watched Frostbolts glitter in the dark near the Dark Portal. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain… Time to die. Sprirt ressed! Gonna repair, brb.

Fey Bull Too

It’s rare to be captivated by a modern game. Back when sprites were being generated on Spectrums and C64s and Amstrads, your initial engagement with a game would be one of reflex; press this button and it does that. Woohoo! Instant ocular gratification. You’d feel your way round for a few minutes, then get comfortable […]

The Storm Before The Calm

Late last year, there was approximately fourteen billion really fucking good games released within a three month window (give or take a month).

Fallout 3 – Daft Shit

Fallout 3 is good. Really good. Here comes the “but” – it’s got some daft shit in there. Create-a-character.
