Replaying and feeling nostalgic: Grim Fandango

There is so much to tell to anyone who havent played Grim Fandango. First of all, it was a 1998 release if my memory doesnt fail me, I was... well, younger and on holidays. I managed to make my parents went for my desktop PC to the city and...

 
 
 
 

Doing some shopping on STEAM

So, probably everyone of you who plays on the PC allready has STEAM and probably some games. If you do then you must know that the discount until January 3 is open with discounts on everything and up to 75%. I cant speak highly enough of...

 
 
 
 

Why Velt? (The Witcher)

It wasnt long ago that I stopped playing The Witcher Enchanced Edition, it was sudden and I said to myself "is ok, we have been playing this game with all its sidequests and having a great time, now is the time for casual gaming and more st...

 
 
 
 
 
 

EA titles coming to STEAM

I have said in the past that STEAM deserves to be the "LIVE" of PC gaming, EA dropping some games into a reliable digital distribution system is a step froward not only for what I think is good for PC gaming, but for a company that, like it...

 
 
 
 

So where the fuck is Velt Cardio?

Velt location is unknown, he lives in south america, but he doesnt know where... of course he could just give some GPS coordinates but that would be just too stupid, even for him (he loves the GPS). Lets say he lives in Montevideo, Uruguay....

 
 
 
 

Alone4Dead

Guys, I know Im not popular around here, but I feel lonely on my L4D nights on STEAM. Yes, I know, Iam a bad person, but I deserve to have someone to play with, so please, would you be my special friend? (on STEAM only, nothing too close, ...

 
 
 
 

So I have this revolutionary idea...

According to some idiot in Sony PR (there seems to be a lot of those in there): "LBP would sell more if other games didn't exist". The gaming industry manages to suprise me everyday, is incredible, and is not because all of those hyped game...

 
 
 
 

Left4Dead... only one level.

So I got back from University today and I had an hour and a half (more close to two hours), playing the "no mercy" chapter in Left4Dead. Is midday around here now, and I have to go back to business now, but I will be back tonight for more z...

 
 
 
 

Hey, we got a comunity server for Left4Dead on STEAM

I dont know who set it up, but is very cool.... Actually I may have an idea of who did it but I cant spell his name right. And noone is in it so, you should come by and play. Right now is the beta, game launches midnight I think. It would...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Zombie fest Left4Dead demo.

Left4dead suprises me, the first hour of gameplay of the demo on STEAM yesterday was like hell: servers were not working, bugs, etc. Lets say that personally I had a bad start with the multiplayer side of the game. But a day later and prob...

 
 
 
 

Ubisoft titles come to STEAM

Velt is not a fanboy For a PC gamer is great news to hear the developing trend of full game releases in digital distribution model. Its even better when new games like FarCry 2 or Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway, not so new like Rainbow ...

 
 
 
 

Do you like to drive? Far Cry 2, a semi-review.

FarCry 2 is a strange game, Im playing it on my PC so I can see that with my machine runs it pretty good (core2duo e6550, 2gb ram, nvidia gforce 8800GTX 320mb on winXP), actually is impressive, the game loads at the start and thats it, no ...

 
 
 
 

Does dtoid needs a redesign?

Im having this idea on my mind, I think Dtoid is way over the blog type, since there is so much to read I have to go back a couple of pages to find out everything that happened on a day. If you are not of those who spend all day in front of...

 
 
 
 

What games are you putting off your list?

Ok, so lets face it, the world economy is in deep shit... blame the americans, the credit crounch or the ice trolls in Iceland, but probably you are allready feeling a little empty in the pocket. So what games are you going to give up? Fi...

 
 
 
 

Driving the "Hell's Highway" first impressions

I have to admit I played too little of the first Brothers in Arms. But its sequel, Brothers in Arms Hell's Highway is giving my a good ride so far. Im playing it on my PC. The only bad thing about playing a sequel so cinematic like this one...

 
 
 
 

Replaying: the Virtual Boy

Yes, I have one of those things, most of the time it stand on over a high place like an icon of my perseverance. Still, besides all the hate the Virtual Boy gets, I can remember like today the day (more than 10 years ago), that my father b...

 
 
 
 

Replaying: Crysis... and the economy is strange

I really hate the economic crisis in the american economy right now, I dont even live in USA, but I feel that things are going down. So Im back playing a game called Crysis and I can shoot the problems away... You can get Crysis and the Wa...

 
 
 
 

Hating the trend: Microsoft and its fail-box

I know, this has probably been adressed more times than "Paris Hilton is a whore", but anyway, I havent talked about it, so I will talk about it. I will say this for my defense: I dont own a console, I play on my PC. I wanted to buy an ...

 
 
 
 

Replaying...

It feels so good to go back at something you allready played and feel it still stands great the test of time. It sends the same good chills down your spine and you just want to play it. I know it has only been a year after World In Conflict...

 
 
 
 

FarCry 2 specs for the PC

Well, here they are. I dont think they are low, but they are not so high anyway. Any pc gamer should have a core2duo by now, and ram is cheap. It seems it will run on a heavy graphic card. Anyway, Im looking forward for this game. Minimum...

 
 
 
 

Noone has talk about it, so lets talk about it...

So Giant Bomb has launched, Giant Bomb appears to be the work of Jeff Gertsman and co. after his loud departure from Gamespot last year. After his departure, others follow him and I can say that pretty much the best editors of Gamespot have...

 
 
 
 

Day of Defeat Source for 5 usd, is it low enough?

I have downloaded the game to play it for the weekend for free on STEAM, my ping has come down to "normal" after a few rounds of Team Fortress 2, which I love. The thing is, I tried Day Of Defeat for a few rounds, I used to play a lot the o...

 
 
 
 

How to make a platform die...

Read first: I live in an "special" part of the world. The word "special" is like when you apply it to a retard. I dont have anything against the 360, but I play games on my PC. I wanted a 360, the shitty hardware stopped me from doing such...

 
 
 


About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
