One final bit of Circle of Doom information

Yeah I know. I should stop blowing this game's cock, but I just had to throw in one last bit of information for those still seeking it about this game before it releases this week. This last bit would be the new playguide released on the ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Zombie Ninja Pro-Am: An ATHF fan review

Today should have been a great day. Not only was I off from work, but two important items came in today for me through the mail. The first item was Sonata Arctica's live DVD For the Sake of Revenge, acquired through Ebay for a measly $20....

 
 
 

Random Filler: 20 Random Questions!

Well folks I've put the whole 'CCG Rant' on hold for the moment. It'll be a few days until the next part as I wish to research my subject in depth. This will work out with me using facts to supplement my opinion so I'm not talking out of ...

 
 
 
 
 

Did you find a GH3 with a missing game?

Alright guys, here comes the big question: did anyone find a bundle that actually had the Guitar Hero 3 software missing? I know it seems silly to ask that, but I'm curious to see if this really was a big issue or if it was just an isolat...

 
 
 

WARNING! GUITAR HERO 3 BUNDLES! WARNING!!

I'll just make this a quick post guys, since I'm at work right now. As a neat little independent store, the store I work at has certain privileges. One of these is the ability to sell games a bit early, such as Halo 3 and Madden. Of cour...

 
 
 

A trip down the most painful of memory lanes...

For some reason I figured I'd make this a quick little post, not wanting to bore you lot with my opinions on things. However I should warn that I am very tempted to do a rant about Soul Nomad very soon, followed up with something about Cas...

 
 
 
 
 

Bladestorm: Sleeper hit of the season?

Koei. To most people that name brings with it fond memories of one man versus many, of various retellings of the legendary Three Kingdoms saga. For some though, like myself, the name brings with it more surly emotions, that of anger and d...

 
 
 

Crash of the Titans: An Updated Review

I'll keep this brief, mostly because I covered about half of the game yesterday in a post. However today I managed to complete the game, and I regret to say that the score went down a bit after completing the game. No longer a 6.5, but mo...

 
 
 

A four hour tour with Crash of the Titans

So it's Thursday, a familiar time at my job. For some it's a dreaded time as well, namely because it's when we get the majority of the new releases that week. Of course this week was no exception, with quite a few titles coming out to sat...

 
 
 

What's your favorite 'relaxation game'?

Everyone has what some call a 'relaxation game', something simple or even a treasured game from their childhood that they play every once in awhile to rest their weary gamer brows. It could be something as simple as Missile Command or Brea...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Building some hype: Fire Pro Wrestling Returns

Ah Fall. That special time of year that brings with it many staples of the gaming universe. From sometimes amazing titles to redundant holiday cash-ins brought forth in order to get a few hundred sales in before Christmas, this season is a...

 
 
 

The beta is dead! Long live Call of Duty 4!

So at long last the CoD4 beta has ended, going out with a bang last night much to the chagrin of most that were playing. I for one was rather irritated that it ended so soon, yet I can understand since they probably wish to finish up the f...

 
 
 

Soul Nomad: The ongoing struggle!

Well folks I spent a good part of the day playing around with this game a bit more, and I must say I'm quite intrigued with certain aspects of the game's design. Plus since everyone was rather positive about the first part of this impressi...

 
 
 

Soul Nomad: Will it destroy your life?

That is the general suggestion all the trailers make about the game anyways. That you can destroy everything, be it towns, the people, or the combat system (?!). Well I will admit the combat system is quite different for the norm for NIS ...

 
 

About CCGames Mikeone of us since 8:36 AM on 09.02.2007

Well I guess the first thing to get out of the way is that I am a game store employee. Luckiy my soul is saved from the evil of places like Gamestop and EB. Instead I work at C&C Games in Fremont, Ohio, a little slice of heaven in the hell of a podunk/retard town of asshats and wiggers.

Other than that I'm your average gamer nerd, my hobby luckily turning into something I can use at work. Even if my expertise seems to be playing the games my bosses can't stand, like RPGS and crazy ass 'unique' titles >.>;. Can't complan though, since working here has given me some more self-confidence and access to my bosses' vast experience in the gaming industry.

Plus I can get sweet swag, like my bitchin' Fable store display (which makes a nice night-stand XD) or the various posters that I eventually have to throw out because of my damn pets =P.

Besides that I can't think of anything else to put here, save for the fact that I love video game music. From the works of Mitsuda and Sakimoto, or even all the way back to Uetmatsu's early days with Final Fantasy, I have quite a large collection that I tend to listen to when either doing a few bits of writing or working =D.
