Everybody's got their pet peeves (God, I hate that phrase). These things that just kind of tick us off, but don't truly make us irate.
Everybody seems to have a post about their gaming history, what started them gaming, and all of that good stuff. So I figured why not me too? Since people are finally starting to come and read some of my posts (though more are always welcome!), I should probably introduce myself.
Are you a game replayer? Do you find yourself going through a game more than once, whether it's because the game was so fun or because you want to get an achievement?
No, this is not a comment on today's lapdog media. Instead, it's a question I put to you. And while the subject matter is video game related, it is kind of a universal question.I've been a big fan of the Official Xbox M
Are you tired of playing your Xbox or PC online games alone or with just your guy friends? Weary of killing zombies with the same old lame male companions?And, most importantly, do you have some money?Many single gaming geeks dream of playing their game online with some h
Was looking around for something to play this afternoon, since I really wasn't in the mood for more Bad Company 2, and happened upon Viva Pinata. We had bought it a while back for really cheap ($5, maybe?) because the wife thought it was "cute." Just never really decided to play it because it was such a "kid's game" and I'm into action!
I earned 1000 Gamerscore on the original Assassin's Creed, with the help of a guide for all of the banners/pennants/whatever.
I finished the (oh so short) single player mode for BC2 and have been enjoying the heck out of the multiplayer. But some of it is still a mystery to me. Thought I'd post some of that here and see if anybody has some answers.
Was playing some Battlefield: BC2 online tonight, and had something happen that I always love. It happens to me a lot on Call of Duty as well.
Have you ever played a game, felt like you were having a blast dismembering lots of bad guys with your bullets, and then just over half-way through starting thinking to yourself "Man, this is getting tedious!" For me, Borderlands is that game. I came to realize that, as much f
I can't help it. I'm addicted to Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2.
When I got home from my vacation at the end of March, my lovely wife had Assassin's Creed 2 for the Xbox 360 waiting for me. Unfortunately, our TV problems meant I couldn't play it for a little while. When I finally did sit down for it, though, I was in pure heaven. This is an awesome game.I had really enjoyed the first game, where you played an assassin during one of the Crusades. The historical detail was wonderful, with a story intricately woven in with the real history. Assassin's Creed 2 takes place in Italy during the late 15th century. You play as Ezio, a young man from an Italian family that gets caught up in the political struggles on the Italian peninsula during this time period. Your father betrayed and executed, you vow revenge on his killers, using the skills acquired both from family heirlooms as well as friends of your father. While your mission starts out as one of revenge, you soon discover that there is something much bigger going on, something that's carried forward from the Crusades, or maybe even from the beginning of time.The conceit of the game is that this war between the Templars and the Assassins has been going on for centuries, and even now is still going on. You are also Desmond, a descendant of both Altair (from the first game) as well as Ezio. Through a technology called "The Animus," you are reliving these memories, learning the skills, and trying to stay one step ahead of the modern day Templars.Unlike the first game, which had way too many modern-day sequences, you only play Desmond a couple of times, and at the beginning and end of the game. The rest of the time, you're in Italy, and the game designers have made this stay extremely inviting (if also quite violent).
