Blu-Ray review - FFVII Advent Children Complete

The original Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children was an extremely odd film. Lauded for its superb art direction, outstanding animation and excellent action scenes, it ticked all of the major boxes, especially the one marked 'fan service'. Bu...

 
 
 

My E3 Predictions - How wrong was I?

OK, so just before E3 I made a series of predictions about what would/might/wouldn't happen. Let's go back and see how far off base I was. Things that were definitely going to happen Sony announces PSP Go - Hardly needed a rocket scien...

 
 
 

The best goddamn birthday present ever

It's my 21st birthday on Tuesday, and as a result, my longtime friend and co-conspirator Corporal Rutland, messed around a little with the Rock Band 2 poster editor and Photoshop, and came up with this... The most awesome thing ever. But...

 
 
 

Things that may or may not happen at E3

Hey, welcome to a blog full of E3 predictions. In no way are these predictions based on anything other than my own fevered imagination and questionable powers of reasoning. And with that, let's start with... Things that will definitely hap...

 
 
 

What are your greatest gaming accomplishments?

I don't mean achievements or trophies, though they can count obviously. What I mean is - What feats have you accomplished in games that have made you super proud and satisfied? They don't have to be particularly difficult or obscure, just...

 
 
 

Putting on a Show - MLB09 Review

There's an important preface to this review - namely that fact that I'm British. Here, Baseball ranks just below lawn bowls and hitting your head against the wall as sports we're interested in. It literally has no presence here whatsoever, ...

 
 
 

Christmas comes very early

I would have waited an eternity for this moment...and I sort of did to be honest. Back in February, I spent a lot of money. And then nothing happened for quite a while. But then, without warning, this turned up on my doorstep this morning. ...

 
 
 

For Those About To Die - Organisation XIII

Kingdom Hearts is obviously a generally rather juvenile series, but some of its deeper and more interesting aspects are contained within the group of villains that form the main opposition within Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kin...

 
 
 
 

5 games that would make great cartoons

1 - Psychonauts Tim Schafer's crazed masterpiece couldn't be better suited to a TV adaption. It's already widely praised for having a fantastic cast of kooky characters, and with the game's distinctive visual style it would be a doddle t...

 
 
 

Fear you can forget - Resident Evil 5 review

Resident Evil 5 is a game with a problem, and that problem is an identity crisis. It's at the same time a bold step forward for the franchise and a game rooted in frustrations of the past, along with a whole new set of frustrations that hav...

 
 
 

An apology, an update and a request

OK, so hopefully from now on posts on this blog will not look like somebody unleashed a spastic onto the enter key. Turns out Chrome doesn't play nice with Cblog formatting (thanks for pointing that out Half Left) and so now I've switched t...

 
 
 

The line starts here

Yesterday, a friend and I undertook a mission: To head to the Trocadero, the large shopping centre in Picadilly, and hunt down what I believe is the only Street Fighter IV arcade cabinet in the country. It took some diligent searching (he...

 
 
 

Curtain Call

1Up Yours Feb 2008 (l to r) Bryan Intihar, Shane Bettenhausen, Andrew 'Skip' Pfister, Garnett Lee, Shawn Elliott By now I'm sure everyone has heard about this, but just to recap - UGO buys 1Up, cancels EGM, then proceeds to shutter...

 
 
 

My Playstation 3 Impressions - Fanboy Bait ahoy!

So, as one man famously said, I 'went and did a very silly thing.' There was this place you see, that I happen to work at, that happened to have an ex-demo PS3 available at a very reasonable price and one thing lead to another and...The u...

 
 
 

HD Revolution?

So for my first post on the C-Blogs, I'm going to kick off in not-so-classic style by announcing - I've just bought a kick arse HDTV. OK, that's a little ostentatious, but I'm more than a bit proud, since it's the first really shiny bran...

 
 

About Dragonziggone of us since 4:28 PM on 10.01.2008

Hey, I'm Martin, though the internet knows me as Dragonzigg

Unlike many self-confessed gamers, I'm not a lifelong fan, in fact I was barred from playing videogames til I was about 13. Unfortunately, I think this had the opposite effect to what was intended, instead simply making me more obsessed with games. Since then it's been impossible for me to get enogh of them, and I'd happily call myself a super hardcore gamer. No matter when it was made, what it is or for what platform I'll play it, unless it's Madden. I'm also from Tea-and-Crumpets land, aka Britain, and thus have got used to waiting twice as long and paying twice as much for my games. Nevertheless, I've managed to scrape together an Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, 2 DS's, PSP, Dreamcast, Megadrive and a gaming PC. Told you I was serious.

What else do people put in these things? Oh yes, I'm a masochist, aka a Sonic fan. Yes I know there hasn't been anything good in a decade. I love adventure and platform games, while I'm not so hot on driving and RTS games, though I'll try anything once. I love good stories and characters in my games, and have no problems wading through a tidal wave of cliche. Proof? I love JRPGs, especially Kingdom Hearts. Don't think anybody can question my nerd credentials there.




Will this do?
