Abridged via wires

Games have the potential to bring us together and since, in the present time, distance is barely an issue providing you connect by managing time zones and internet speeds, they can do it well. There was a time where me and a friend si...

 
 
 

12 Games I appreciate more after making one

For the record I have not published a game. The title should be corrected to 'after trying* to make one'. I took part in a now finished one. Once, as part of a course, I was assigned a lead role, in a group of three, to make a game pro...

 
 
 
 

My First Three Days with Far Cry 2

Over these three days I had enough game breaking glitches to end four or five play sessions but I persevered. If you do the same then rewards await. The game is haphazardly delightful. If you've played it you know what I mean.   D...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Shadow of Mordor vs Lego LotR

There was natural incentive to tumble down the Tolkien tunnel again over the last year. Given enough time reading you wish there was another medium to enjoy Middle-earth. Movies are good but the right game can be better. Until board ga...

 
 
 
 

5 Games I played not quite as intended

Everyone has an uncle or relative who plays the card games with a different rule. Five of hearts cancels the Ace of hearts or Aces are lower ranking rather than high or the Queen of hearts wipes out all lesser cards. You can play free ...

 
 
 

Rayman 2 Revisited

With Michel Ancel’s recent departure from the gaming industry and retreating to nature as is the most logical step for organic species, we can now turn our heads backwards to his first, and still best IMHO, foray into the world ...

 
 
 

10 of My Gaming Regrets

Inspired by: https://grindingdown.wordpress.com/category/games-i-regret/ My teenage years English teacher, the same that encouraged me to write which was a debatable choice, once said that to read a bad book was as worthwhile as readin...

 
 
 
 
 

We Did Not Deserve Viewtiful Joe

'Deserve’s got nothin to do with it' grumbles a gruff Clint Eastwood in the 1992 western film Unforgiven, spoken just before he takes aim down the barrel of his shotgun and fires, the implication being Gene Hackman's head was the...

 
 
 

Bully Deserved Better

Rockstar are now the kings of big scale game development. They have conquered quite literally the virtual world and even then built their own that we wanted to join. Rockstar now even makes games about mythic portraits of times in hist...

 
 
 

11 Games I've not played and I am ashamed

How many of us have too many games to play? Go to the site How Long To Beat Steam that totals up the number. How many? Are you ashamed? Good. So am I, but of myself, because I did the test too. This is just my list. We all have on...

 
 
 

7 Good Average Games

Not all games are born equal. Some go through hell before they even make it into life, some are a frankenstein of what it was meant to be. Some are just a few automated processes with some polygons slapped ontop. Some have all a person...

 
 
 

10 Games I Love But Cannot Recommend

Some game experiences we want to share with everyone, others we simply can't even make it into words and want to share anyway, forcing the cardridge/disk/activation code into someones hands so forcefully they get the opposite effect. S...

 
 
 

Zelda 35: Outlook on the ages

A stretch of green pasture rolls out before me, hills, rivers, forests, villages, caves, swamps, mountain(s) and one big castle is a familiar landscape of unfixed size and design. Equipped with nothing but a sword and shield (and fire ...

 
 

About Eggs&BrewsterJrone of us since 5:31 PM on 02.07.2021

There is a time in everyone's life where the inner character is carved out, I must have missed out on that time cause I was off playing games. Nowadays I'm lucky if I finish 3 games a year and so I thought maybe I'll write about them and my old time war stories of memory cards and arcades might gets clicks and make that time seem worth it for more than just me. One can hope.

I enjoy reading, writing and gaming and sometimes those 3 all happen at once.
I enjoy old books, old music, old movies and pretty much getting on like a cantankerous old man.

Retro games became my gaming priority about two years ago and it would be a lie to say I have not looked back but I expect it was for the best.
Jaded gamer refusing to purchase a new console because I've more 360 and pre-2015 PC games to last me the next decade.
Enjoy reading blogs rather than writing my own so I think I'm in the right place.

If you read what I wrote about what I play then maybe you'll play what I wrote about and then you'll write about you playing what you read so I can read it and the circle prevails.
