Over the last weekend I completed Metal Gear Solid 2, properly, for the first time. I say properly, but I actually did it in Easy mode. It was fine, I think I definitely could have pushed it up to Normal or even Hard witho...
As some of you may have read in a previous blog, my 360 died last month and I haven't been able to get it fixed for cheap. Therefore I have been devoid of 360 gaming for the last few weeks. I was angry, confused, hurt. I turn...

At long last, I am soon to be picking up a DS Lite for myself (and just in time for the Night shifts I'll be doing over the holidays), and was wondering if any of you communitarians have advice on what to pick up. Here's what...
I picked up Pokemon Fire Red. The clock is at 43:26. Oh dear.
I remember when I was about nine or ten, when Pokemon Red and Blue had just come out here in Ireland. These games were the talk of the school yard, and I begged...
