Drink a long a Freq

Before we get started: Warning drinking too much can make ugly people look attractive and may cause serious embarrassment, walks of shame or premature death. Please drink responsibly. Ok that should have me covered from any liability....

 
 
 

Steam direct, is it the answer?

Ok for better or Worse there's talk of Valve shutting down greenlight and replacing it with new admission system and a price between $200 and $5,000. So far very little in known but I thought I'd do a Cblog about it anyway because a l...

 
 
 
 

[Gamergate] Everybody lies

Disclaimer:  Death / rape threats are bad. Don't do them! Additional: If the Recapper reading this doesn't want to bother with this then they have my blessing to not bother including this nonsense in the recaps Warning: This blog ...

 
 
 
 

The Grumble awards 2016

By the pricking of my thumb, something wicked this way does come. So I've done my good games list it's now time for the bad and the ugly list. Now some games won't be making this list because I didn't play them and while being, in m...

 
 
 
 

´╗┐My not terrible awards 2016

So it's new year and I decided I want to do an awards thing this year. The awards are arbitrary, the winners purely my subjective choice and may not even relate to the present year at first glance. Unlike my traditional Grumble awards,...

 
 
 

Clash Royale, I should hate it. But I don't

So after Clash of Clans made it big along with its many imitators I kind of thought mobile was dead. For the most part I still consider it to be mostly dead other than the odd pearl that makes it to the surface of the toxic waste dumb...

 
 
 

Westworld, Video games and excess.

OK I like Westworld. I like knowing that HBO have said 5 seasons and no more. I like the idea that it was inspired by video games. It's well presented and honestly considering what I've been viewing it works as a good counter point to...

 
 
 

Bethesda is done with people's crap.

Ok if you've come here for some piece chastising Bethesda for a blatantly anti consumer move you've come to the wrong place. Others have done that and I really don't think this is a road I need to go down while Totalbiscuit and Jim St...

 
 
 
 
 

How to do Duke Nukem right.

Consider this a weird kind of game / script pitch style blog different to my previous ones.  After Duke Nukem Forever I started writing this C-blog then kind of abandoned it because it seemed stupid. But hey with a possible new D...

 
 
 

Master Click Baiter

So I wanted to do a bit of something stupid blog wise and I find some of the stupid stuf being put out to try to get clicks to be pretty hilariously bad. Then I set myself a stupid challenge. To try and predict future clickbait headli...

 
 
 

Nerd 3.0 and the Death of Empathy.

So, long ago MovieBob put out a big picture episode about the future of nerds and the idea of inclusion and how it's the job of geek culture to not just be inclusive but actively go after those seen and not being or not promoting incl...

 
 
 
 

[NVGR] my Suicide Squad Review

Baggage check: So before starting this I feel I should lay some of my cards on the table and check the potential baggage I'm carrying into this review that you should know about as this may have impacted my view of the film. 1) My wis...

 
 
 

[Rant] It's your choice to read this or not

So you know what certain weasely individuals have recently been on about how developers need to make more serious consequences to choices to actively stop peoples fun if they make a "Bad" choice. Even claiming but not doing this then ...

 
 
 
 

My E3 dissection - Every-one has crabs

So welcome to my E3 dissection where I give my breakdown of the E3 show and my thoughts on it. Now what better way to start by giving you some of the best of my Twitter Snark (as judged by the internet)    Well that was fu...

 
 
 

#Linkgate and the problematic Jane Bond.

So a bunch of whiny twats who wanted to push their Agenda are presently throwing tantrums because "OMG LINK is MALE" With some of them yelling about how they have no reason to care for the game anymore.  Well fuck by that logic ...

 
 
 

Don't be a Pubbie. Git Mediocre at least

Pubbies, CODpieces, COD kids call them what you want but you know what I want I feel like having a bit of a rage and you know what? The time has come for me to address this. I did hint about it a long time ago in my "How COD is harmin...

 
 
 

[Adult content] Overwatch is bloody dark

Oh that new happy bright colourful shooter Overwatch is out soon and I already did one C-Blog about the main story . But little did you know lurking below that happy exterior hides some very very dark elements. So dark in fact I put a...

 
 
 

Overwatch the story so far

So I wanted to do a bit of a brief Overwatch story thing. Now with 21 characters so far in the game it would be somewhat impractical to go through the story of everyone as many of the characters have more side stories. As such I'm onl...

 
 
 

"But films cost more........."

So that's something I've seen bounded about a bit more recently and with the $20 price tag suggested to being added to the 90~ish minutes of gameplay for the PS4 version of Gone Home I thought it might be worth tackling the subject of...

 
 
 

About Dwavenhobbleone of us since 8:33 AM on 06.19.2012

A qualified Environmental Chemist who happens to live in a fairly dense city with no real environment or chemistry industry.

I review indie games on another blog and you'll see them pop up here if I think the review is a good or interesting one (along with a shameless bit of self promotion)

I also operate another blog reviewing films and I mean t pick that back up when I can.

I've been gaming since the SNES days. I've been in the pro scene before for tribes 2 but hate the present pro scenes and have no interest in going back into it.

I tend to get into quite a few Betas and love ones without NDA as it means I can write about them. I have even beta tested an xbox 360 game in my time (and no not a normal public Beta one )

In gaming I'm normally the guy looking at the shelf below the AAA titles first to see if there are any great hidden gems.

My gaming drug of choice: Timesplitters in any flavour (Why won't you make Timesplitters 4 Crytek, why ????? I need my fix of insanity )
