CiNG files for bankruptcy [shortblog]

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=20146899 Fuck. Fucking fuck. Shit fuck fuck dammit. This is so sad. I became a huge fan of Cing the moment I played Trace Memory and Hotel Dusk Room 215 for the first time. They brought back...


My Expertise: Amateur Commander and Strategist

There are times that the battlefield will look like a disgrace. Our defenses are low, our snipers just want to back off, and the enemy got us surrounded. There are times when victory is nothing but a sissy dream or an illusion caused by t...


I Love it Because it's Stupid

I have a confession to make: I have a very, very sensitive funny bone. I can laugh at almost everything that intends to be funny. I will admit that I like to watch Family Guy as tiring the jokes can get, I feel like I just have to enjoy t...


EMERGENT REVIEW: Star Warrior 2: Defenders

From the moment I am posting this, 6:04am (-7GMT), there are 19 hours 29 minutes left to DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL this game from GiveAwayOfTheDay for free in an absolutely legal way. Download NOW! The best formulas survive appearing as new ...


The Memory Card: The Citadel and Dr. Wallace Breen

As a fan of Chad Concelmo's The Memory Card series, I thought it would be a nice idea to try doing an unofficial entry, because I have encountered some moments that really do mean something for me in some games I have played through, and ...


Top 5 Valve Piping

I am such a Valve fanboy. What can I say? The company made me love First-Person shooters and PC gaming even more. They also make so much awesome stuff at the full service of their fans and audience, despite the problems they have faced in...


How to Stop Whining About Any Game.

We all gamers by nature have reasons to whine, some reasons make sense, others are horseshit, but still most of the times it is all horseshit. There has been raving about every single kind of game I have ever seen now, but will there be ...


Games I Wish they Announced in 2010

November arrived and is almost done already, that was fast! So as we are getting closer to the verge of another year, which has been very generous for my game collection, I think it is worth wondering about what will come and could come. ...


There Are No Sequels, Just Expansions.

Remember when you were young in the '80s or '90s when you played your first games? Wasn't it something incredible to see such a complex invention were you were doing something for the TV instead of it doing the show for you? Remember how ...


Make Peace With Venus

[Note: This is a resubmission of an old entry for the Untapped Potential musing we had months ago. I am resending this because I feel this is an issue I want more people to talk about.] For over 30 years, the videogame industry has been ...


Nothing is Sacred: Daltonism

You might remember E3 2005, we were introduced to all that was coming for next generation and we could barely contain it because it was emulating a lot of realistic details like the palette in real life. There is something we cannot deny,...


Video Game Tropes that get me sold

We know that games have tropes as movies and TV, and some of the most popular by now are zombies and music. As much I love the previous mentioned, there are some that I just feel hypnotized by the idea behind and make me want to know more...


This is how you make an EarthBound party. [shortblog]

And party as in BIRTHDAY PARTY! Starmen.net does not cease to amaze me showing me what fans like to do about his game. These guys made for a friend an EarthBound birthday party with games that honestly look like a lot of fun putting the pr...


Hello, I am a Medic.

For a decent time, I have been into the role of burning things when I was first recruited into the job of working for nastily rich companies, but just recently I decided to try something more demanded and way interesting. Due to it is tha...


About Monodione of us since 10:46 PM on 10.15.2008

About time I updated this freaking thing!

For those who already know me, I am Monodi. Those who doesn't, well, I am Monodi.

I got such a growing passion of gaming through the years and now I am currently in college starting my courses of Game Design as well!

I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy from all my life, but I have been much more in contact with titles for PC recently. Not that I am abandoning one, but I think it pretty much could cover the best the industry has to offer.

I am up for the philosophy that gameplay is more important than graphics, but I think graphics and technology are also a crucial part of the industry and experience even.

Games I love and recommend in no particular order

Rhythm Heaven (DS)
Half-Life 2 (PC/XBOX)
