SteamID & XBL Gamertag: ScottyGrayskull


Hello! <3

Bit about me. I've been a gamer for the most of my life. When I was seven and waiting for my parents to pick me up from piano lessons, the teacher's two sons showed me Super Mario Bros 2. Needless to say I never learned to play the piano very well...

I've flip-flopped several times between consoles and PCs. I generally love non-generic FPS games, puzzlers (Tetris is probably my favourite game of all time) and platformers of all shapes and sizes. I tolerate RPGs, but usually don't bother because I just don't have the time to invest in them.

I'm one of those freaks that regard FF7 and Ocarina of Time as merely average. That might be partly because I'm biased against the first round of 3D games that generally looked and played like crap compared to the 2d games at the time (during that generation I was a PC gamer, where they actually could do decent 3D at the time). By no means are they bad games, but plenty of games have done just as well and actually looked good in the process.

Yeah yeah, graphics aren't everything. But as important as gameplay is, looks still matter. It doesn't have to be the best looking thing around, but it at least has to be passable.

I tried to be a collector for awhile, but realized there was no market where I lived and gave that up. Currently I have an NES, SNES, GameBoy/GameBoy Colour/GameBoy Advance SP, DS, a 360, and of course my lovely gaming PC. ^_^

Hello my lovely dtoiders! It's been awhile since I've done a cblog that wasn't a recap. Did you miss me? <3

I just thought I'd pass along some of the latest Steam deals. In case you haven't heard, there is a big sale that started yesterday, featuring different deals throughout the weekend. Yesterday some of the highlights were Batman: Arkham Asylum at $25 (50% off), Dragon Age: Origins for $37.50 (25% off), and Osmos (as recommended by our own Rev) for a whopping $2 (80% off). Did you miss out on any of these deals?

Well fear not, as there are plenty more savings to be had today! Just in case you can't be bothered to check, they are:

- Dead Space: $15 (50% off)
- Majesty 2: $10 (75% off)
- Left 4 Dead 2: $37.50 (25% off) <-- I'd love you forever if you gifted this to me <3 <3 <3
- Cities XL Limited Edition: $25 (50% off)
- Madballs in Babo: Invasion: $2 (80% off)
- Mini Ninjas: $15 (50% off)
- Star Wars: KotoR: $2.50 (75% off)

There are deals on both the LucasArts Premier Pack and the THQ Complete Pack which are running all weekend!

Personally, I'm sadly sticking to the cheap games. In addition to being on financial assistance at the moment I already have a massive pile of games to play, both of which make getting yet more games hard to justify. But don't let that stop you! :D

PS: Happened to notice that the mid-week, 50% off sale on Plants vs Zombies hasn't expired yet. If you've been thinking about picking this up now is your chance for a measly $5! <3
