Backlog Challenge Part 7

So two months ago I said that July would be catch up month and that tackling the backlog would have to wait for a few weeks. Well those few weeks ended up becoming two whole months as the Steam sale went on and I was, once...

Backlog challenge 2013 Part 6

Failure! As much as I expected it, Dark Souls has kicked my ass this month. I've put in some hours in Dark Souls but I'm making slow progress. This is what I expected though, my friends have told me that Dark Souls is a game ...

Backlog challenge 2013 Part 5

If I thought last month was productive, then May was even better. Thanks to a pair of three-day weekends I managed to get plenty of games completed this month. First up was Singularity, which took me about 8 hours to complete...

Backlog challenge 2013 Part 4

Last month was a good result in taking on my Backlog; I took on three games, two old and one new and completed all of them. First up was Hard Reset, the old school sci-fi FPS. Boy, I tell you I havenít circle strafed in a ga...

Backlog challenge 2013 Part 3

Okay so that took longer than expected. At the start of February you voted that I should play The Secret Of Monkey Island: Special Edition for the first time. And play it I did but it took a whole lot longer than expected. So...

Backlog challenge 2013 Part 2

So last month you kindly folks voted that I play Sleeping Dogs and scratch that game off my backlog. And play it I did, completing the single player, a fair chunk of the side missions as well as the Zodiac Tournament and Nigh...

Backlog challenge 2013 Part 1

So in the vain hope of reducing my backlog, Iím throwing open the chance to all of you lovely folk as to what game Iím going to play next in my backlog. When I say my hopes are in vain, it basically means that Iím hoping to...

Review: Cards Against Humanity

Cards against Humanity is a very simple game. It can also be a staggeringly offensive game if you are so inclined. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Cards Against Humanity gained notoriety online and it's been somethin...

Resolutions: Get Better At Games

So in 2011, I set myself the challenge of completing more games and making a dent on my backlog. In the end I had mixed results; the games I finished almost all the games I started this year, but I still didn't really make a ...

Beating my backlog 2011: the results

Earlier on this year, I made the decision I had to finish more games and to make an effort to try and reduce my backlog. The reasons for this were twofold; I had received an X-box 360 for Christmas and after moving back from ...

Stevil's very, very late and belated PAX 2010 adventures*

*(Yes 2010, not 2011. I am very late with this) I am easily distracted. Whilst I like to think I'm very focussed and single minded, I get overwhelmed with other things and find myself wanting constant variety. All of which i...

A week of offline woes

So over the last six days, I've been in the surprisingly warm, north east coast of Scotland helping my parents moving some items out of my grandparent's old house. My grandmother passed away a few years ago and we've moving s...

EPIC games vs apps

So just a few days ago, EPIC games president Mike Capps claimed that mobile app gaming is going to affect the next generation of console games in a negative way: ďIím more worried that you can get a really good 99 cent game ...

A Re-introuction to me - Ali D (that rhymes!)

So now that Iíve gotten a couple of posts under my belt, I thought Iíd re-introduce myself, as of course youíre all wondering who that handsome, monochrome man is that scowling at you from the top of some PC news on the front...

E3 Approaches: Treading Water

[Disclaimer: I wrote most of this last week without having internet access in my house, and only getting videogame news via my phone. By now quite a bit of what I've written about is either incorrect or been revealed, but I'm...

Aaamaazing: Rapture Revealed

Iíll be the first to admit, Iím a videogame news junkie; even when it comes to either titles or systems I donít own. Part of the downside of this is that Iím often not surprised when I actually play a game because thereís a n...

Technical Difficulties: Why am I not getting better at games?

So after an initial run through of the fairly average Severed DLC for Dead Space 2, I thought to myself ďYeah, Iím going to try this on the Zealot difficultyĒ (Zealot being one harder than normal). Wow, that was a mistake; Se...

Tips on how to beat your backlog*

*thatís not a euphanism So this year, Iíve decided to make a concentrated effort to play more games and significantly reduce my backlog of games. Now moving from Australia back to Scotland has meant that my X-box 360 collect...

Groundhog Day - GTA: Vice City

It takes something special for me to return to a game; considering I actually finish so few of them, having a game I will play more than once is actually a rarity. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a game Iíve completed on numer...

In defence of Mass Effect 2 (not that it needs it)

After reading a bunch of 2010 Game Of The Year lists, one thing was clear; people really enjoyed Mass Effect 2 (I was one of them), but there was one thing that stuck out amidst the praise. There were numerous comments compla...

2010 sucked because we're blind to the wonders around us

Itís an interesting concept that an entire year sucked for gaming; especially after having the last few years branded ďthe best year in gaming since ****!Ē which seemed to have started in either 2006 or 2007. Looking back at ...

My Games Of The Year

So 2010 has almost passed, which is a relief. Itís been a year of highs (going to PAX in September and meeting my Dtoid buddies for the first time and having an awesome time) to agonising lows (upheaval in my personal life). ...

Xbox Live Fall Dashboard going live tomorrow

It appears that at some point tomorrow when you turn on your Xbox you're going to see a few improvements and changes. The folks out there who have early Kinect games and have thus been locked out of Xbox Live have recei...

Ali D's (late) PAX loving post!

Even when I received my pass in the post, I still couldnít believe I was actually going to PAX. I felt something would go wrong; like Iíd be turned away from US Customs for having a beard or something. So after saying bye to ...

I love Valve but this seems slightly shady

Stop me if youíve heard this one before: thereís a co-op, top down shooter available on Steam. You blast some aliens and itís been developed from a Unreal Tournament mod. Yes, itís Alien Breed: Impact, which was released in J...
