Happy Birthday to Me

I'm not one to wait for others to give me what I can give myself, so I gave myself a birthday cake! This was a triumph... Not THAT cake! Another one. You have gained Karma! Better. A little trivia: The main character in Fallout 3, the Lone Wanderer, shares my July 13th birthday. Link here.


Alternate Reality: Your Character and You

When we play a videogame, how much time do we actually spend thinking about the character we're controlling? This post will hopefully shed some light on the characters that act as our vessels in the gaming world of our choic...


A Proposal: A Personalized Rating System

I know that we all disagree when it comes to different games. Some of us like it more than others, and some hate it. To make matters simpler I propose a new personalized rating system, which is pretty simple to calculate. Ca...

And the Winner is...

I would like to wholeheartedly thank Sony for not only giving a damn about their core audience, but actually giving them what they desire. Microsoft's efforts were extremely painful to watch, and I have to hold myself back f...



Once, long ago, there was a time In what now seems a distant land Each small console, was the be all end all Cause every little game's carefully planned Then there came a Revolution The Nintendo Wii was its name Now instead o...


The End?

I may be overreacting, but I fear that the state of the pastime we all come together in loving is facing a massive shift, which comes with new wonderful technologies, used in underwhelming ways. The Microsoft Press Conferenc...


Kinect: The Most Painful Demo to Watch

I was watching the Microsoft Press Conference via Gametrailers.com just now, and it seems they want to force themselves to transform their products into another Wii. I couldn't watch it anymore... First, Kinect Animals, or w...


A Shift in Taste

This article might work best with a soundtrack, so I took the liberty of picking one. Click here and read on. Recently I have been going through a phase in which overly violent videogames stopped doing it for me. I believe i...


Fighting for Games

Recently I've had an encounter with what could be the worst nightmare for younger gamers everywhere: A relative, around 50 years old, who believes video games are the worst form of time wasters and that I should "grow up" and...


About SAMA1984one of us since 3:01 AM on 01.11.2010

I'm a lifelong gamer who has enjoyed video games through the thick and thin of my life. I'm also a person who speaks my mind often, which is why I chose to start this blog here where others can discuss what I have to say.

Originally a Nintendo fan, I've turned my back on it when they turned their collective backs on their old following. Currently, my Wii is still connected to my TV and I play with it from time to time.

Had an Xbox 360, which got the red ring five times before I put it out of its misery, and got an Elite, which got the E74 error and couldn't be replaced or fixed. Currently, it's on a shelf in some game repair shop, collecting dust, and that doesn't look like it's about to change anytime soon.

Have a PS3, which is going strong. It's currently my primary console.

I also have a DS and am planning to pick up a PSP as soon as Valkyria Chronicles 2 comes out. And a PC that runs Crysis, Supreme Commander and World of Warcraft, often at the same time.

You see, my posts may get responses suggesting I'm a fanboy or a hater, which is why I clarify this here: I tried all consoles, and didn't cling onto them when they started to fail, either in company support or in hardware/software.

My favorite genres are real time strategy and first person shooters, and I often turn to role-playing games and fighting games, with a bit of platforming on the side.

I hate, HATE music games. I love the songs you can play in them, but I hate the concept.
