Aaamaazing: A Whole New Planet

I really could not think of a good enough title. I could write every blog about FFX. I really could. Nothing would stop me. I'd be the king of my own blogs and you all could either complain or live with it. So when this monthly musing topi...

 
 
 
 

My 3DS Experience: At Best Buy [QuickBlog]

I say, At Best Buy, because I'm not sure where else I'll have a try to get one. Maybe a friend will get one and I'll get to see more in-depth action. Best Buy severely limited my 3DS testing to one game; Pilotwings Resort. So just yesterda...

 
 
 

My Top 5 Favorite Shooters (FPS & TPS)

(In case anyone is wondering, TPS = Third person shooter. Also, these 5s do NOT include Shoot 'em ups.) Free Monday Night Combat on steam for this weekend really renewed my faith in the shooting genre. It was something new and took a compl...

 
 
 

Why am I a PC Gamer?

Being a PC Gamer in my highschool is strangely awkward. Everyone plays consoles and have never experienced the orgasmic feeling that playing PC games gives you. For example, back when Mw2 was released, my buddies kept asking me, “You get th...

 
 
 

Technical Difficulties: Missing Out

I'm a fan of the easy option. Through my first playthrough of most games, I usually set the game mode to easy merely to see the gameplay without having to constantly load my saved data. And if the gameplay is good enough, I'll go through th...

 
 
 
 

DLC is Gaming Industry Cancer (And how to cure it)

At one time, DLC was in the form of expansion packs. These times were bearable; very few games decided to do it and the expansions were good. Sims 1 had a lot of expansions, but they were decently spaced from each other, so I could forgive ...

 
 
 

Bulletstorm Review (Spoiler Free!) [PC]

I've learned not to hype over games, because I usually end up dissapointed. SSBB being the easiest one to remember, followed by Borderlands, then Split/Second. But lately, I've been bouncing off the walls. Duty Calls was one of the best mar...

 
 
 
 

[QuickBlog] So, Bulletstorm has been leaked.

Yeah, it's official, Bulletstorm has been leaked for the 360. And before "piracy isn't news", this is more towards those who think PC gaming is the only one with leaks. The reason, IMO, people tend to think of PC more when it comes to vid...

 
 
 

How to maintain and take care of your PC

I wrote this just yesterday when I was introducing myself to a new online community. I did this to show that I can be helpful, and earn their trust. But looking over it, I feel like it's good enough for anyone, so here's the version I broug...

 
 
 

DLC - Rushed, More of the same, Sometimes better.

DLC is becoming a problem in today's gaming industry. At first, it wasn't that big a deal. It was a good idea. Let people pay for more. I'm okay with that. But when you release a half-assed Call of duty, label it as awesome, release 50 upd...

 
 
 
 

My Top 5 Favorite Songs in Vidya games

A lot of my favorite games just seem to have great musical scores or just a really epic song or two. Of course, there's probably so many games out there that have music better than what I have listen in this blog, yet I believe these are my...

 
 
 

Groundhog Day: Take me away

The idea of taking your current self and just dropping you off in some strange, exciting new world. How does that make you feel? Are you excited? Are you scared? Are you intimidated? In 2007, I was just recovering from a very traumatic sit...

 
 
 

First Person Shooters: A Success Story

Prologue You know the guy. He preorders black ops a year before it's release. He talks to all his friends about his epic moments in CoD. He buys all the DLC. Yeah, well that used to be me. And I'm, quite frankly, ashamed of it. My...FPS s...

 
 
 

Groundhog Day: Back to the world I love

Have you been reading a single one of my blogs? If so, you probably can guess what game I'm going to mention. If not, then I guess this will come as a bit of a surprise. Hardly ever, there's a game in which I hold so dearly to my heart tha...

 
 
 

Games that defined my childhood #1

I plan for this to be a mini-blog series to look back upon what games primarily made up my childhood and growing up. I grew up with video games. My oldest memory was holding a gameboy color in my hand, or playing Nintendo. My family didn't...

 
 
 

Top 6 Forms of Anti-piracy

(Usually, there'll be top 5 or top 10. It was going to be top 5, but there was no way I could leave one of my favorites out.) Nowadays, you pirate a game, and install it/play it. And if it's a pirated copy, most likely you'll get a blue/bl...

Sony vs. Ps3 Hackers

If you make anything technological that people will use, it will be hacked. It's one of the reasons why we can't have nice things. Although, gotta give credit to Sony, the Ps3's firmware lasted much longer than the wii and 360. But it was b...

 
 
 

Just some thoughts.

There's quite a few things I'd like to blog about, whereas most of my blogs are 1 topic only, so I could come up with no better title. If you come up with one, let me know in the comments. Or post a picture comment. Those are always funny. ...

 
 
 

Piracy and Homebrew.

The new Dtoid post with Ps3 homebrew available seems to have people a bit bothered by it. But people are generalizing, one of my pet peeves even though sometimes I have done it. Rarely, but I have. And here's the thing....Well, first, her...

 
 
 

Christmas Positivity

I like to be positive, and christmas time gives me a good reason to be positive, especially when it comes to games. And I got quite a few dollars to spend on Steam's great deals lately, so I started with 1 game on steam (Team Fortress 2) an...

 
 
 

Wait.....what? [Quickblog] [NVGR]

Went to the theater today, to go see Tron Legacy. They were only offering it in 3D. So I'm like, "Sure, I'll toss in an extra $5 to see Tron." Walk in, sit down, the movie starts. It begins with something along the lines of; "Tron was f...

 
 
 

Postivity? Coming from me? Yeah...

In a world, where the gaming industry has been kind of iffy lately, one indie game rises above all but one (Minecraft) to show the true colors of the gaming industry's market.... That game...the game that has brought me happiness....the "...

 
 
 

Macs; Why they're terrible.

Originally, I was going to skip out on this blog, till I saw people even think Macs were good. So here we go. Let's start by breaking it down economically. If you know money, then you know they're ripping you off. The pic is a little ha...

 
 
 

My #1 most hated game of all time.

I'm usually negative around destructoid. Why? I find it easier to convey negative feelings rather than good feelings, because the negative feelings come at me faster and clearer than normal. I believe it's been a recent thing; me judging ev...
