Yearly, Self-Destructive Gaming

The month of May is, for me, a month of feverish gaming. I would suspect that it is also a month of feverish gaming for each and every student out there for one reason, and one reason only: there are things that we should be doing otherwi...

 
 
 

Unreal Chains Of Solid Gears: The Graphic Novel

This weekend, being forced to head home to help out my family in the garden, I decided to do something that I haven't done in a while. You know- buy games. With my DS and I in marriage counselling, I picked up Chains of Olympus, Portable...

 
 
 

The Problem With Prov (And Society)

Pro Evolution Soccer ('Prov' in the circles I move in..) is perhaps the game that I have dedicated the most time in my 20 years. Well, either that or Red Alert 2. Having picked up the game in it's first incarnation as Pro Evolution Socce...

 
 
 

Bland of Brothers

Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions on the PSP is a wonderful game, of that I have little doubt, but it has two very distracting flaws. They are by no means game ruining but, for me, they detract from a game that is otherwise incredib...

 
 
 

Patapon Invades Europe, Ireland Surrenders.

Fuck Ireland. Or perhaps, fuck Europe. Patapon's release hype contained the nourishing information that the game would cost a mere $20 in the US on it's release. This is roughly 14 Euro which is the cost of about 3 pints. 3 Pints of s...

Sweet Dreams My SS-Ex

My love of SSX is at odds with my hatred of EA and their 'totally wicked like Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch' sports games. The games in the series have, for the most part, balanced the obnoxious EA ethos with a game that is incredibly fu...

 
 

About Viscone of us since 2:42 PM on 03.03.2008

Firstly, the thing you must know about me is that I am Irish. Not that I am celebrating it, anyone who has been to Dublin will know that it is a dark, dirty place attracting only horrible Hen Parties and filthy murderous knackers. I get by, that is, I try to.

Having examined much gaming culture I am fully aware that I am not "Old School". I am the ripe old age of 20. For the first half of my life my Parents viewed Gaming as an abhorrent pastime breeding only murderous sociopaths who played Mortal Kombat one handed to masturbate. I then managed to get a PS1 and Tomb Raider 2 and life was never the same...

I finally managed to break through my cack-handedness and homebrew my PSP (and ruin a perfectly good battery) so.. if any of you need to know stuff you can ask, I suppose.

Currently playing:

Dragon Quest V: HOTHB
Resistance Retribution

Add me motherfuckers. I will be going around randomly adding you all soon, so if some strange Irish guy adds you, chances are it's me.

Or Bono.
