    I was a bit nervous when I walked into the restaurant to meet her. My hair was combed, I'd even put on a little cologne. While I didn't do the whole shirt and tie thing, I was wearing a nice dress shirt and Dockers.

  • Borderlands 2 - A Sacrilegious Comment to Follow?

    19 3

    I bought Borderlands 2 on opening day and stuck it in my PS3 that very night to start reveling in the comically violent goodness that we all knew was coming. This was one of the most anticipated games of the year! Everything the original had and more! Sixty+ hours of gaming goodness!

  • The Often-Overlooked aspects of Sports Games - Presentation

    7

    When you think of video games and what makes them good, you often think of two aspects of them that contribute to that: gameplay and how it looks. I'm not just talking about graphics, but also interface, how the game is presented to you. Yes, story is important too, but what if you're playing a sports game? Sports games have these same issues, except they don't have to wrap a story around everything else that makes the game great.

  • The search for that elusive platinum

    I am proud to say that, after 35+ hours of gameplay, including one 9-hour marathon session where the game finally froze on me in an attempt to make me finally turn the @%@%@ machine off, I completed Sleeping Dogs the other day. I'm not talking about my usual "completion" where I finish the story, maybe play around for a bit and see if I can knock off a few achievements or just have a little more fun. (Short review: see my First Impressions article and then maximize all of the enjoyment I expressed in that article at least by three)

  • First Impressions - Sleeping Dogs - More than a GTA Clone

    11

    Some of you may know the story of Sleeping Dogs. Originally called True Crime: Hong Kong when it was going to be published by Activision, the company decided that suitable progress was not being made and cancelled the game. Square Enix bought the game, but doesn't have the rights to the True Crime name, and thus Sleeping Dogs was born.

    Boss fights annoy the @#%@% out of me. You might remember I ranted about them before. So you'd think that I would avoid anything that was really boss fight heavy, wouldn't you? Most of the time, I do. But ohhhhh, that peer pressure. It can really... More
  • Underwhelmed by the Fall - a Look at Autumn 2012

    Autumn is a big time for gaming. All of the Triple-A releases come out during those three months, with the occasional title jumping early like Oklahoma settlers, hitting the last two weeks of August.

    How many of you who play some of the more, shall we say, violent video games said something like that to a friend, a spouse, a girl/boyfriend, or maybe the dog if you don't have any of those other things? (and if you don't have *any* of those things, then what the hell are you doing playing video games? Go find at least one of them!)
