For the things in life which make me glad I'm not dead yet.
Hello First Access Member, As the launch date for Duke Nukem Forever approaches, we would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to you, the true believers who have already placed your bet on Duke with your pre-order, or Borderlands Game of the Year purchase. As a sign of our appreciation, Gearbox [...]
I’ve had a second 360 kicking about the house gathering dust for nearly 2 months now as I haven’t got around to putting it on ebay since replacing it with a 360S. h On a whim I decided I’d have a crack at GOAT/Hall of Famer in Rockstar Table Tennis this weekend, taking advantage of the free XBL [...]
As soon as I heard about this game I was sold on the idea. I absolutely loved the WWF back in the early-mid 90s. No game I can remember in recent times has made me literally gasp “hehe, fucking awesome”. I think I spent the first 5 hours of the game with a permanent grin on my face as I witnessed [...]
Recently I started using Google Docs for my achievement checklists, rather than OpenOffice, so rather than just bin them when I’m finished they’re out there on the internet should anyone find them useful. I never use full walkthroughs, but find it handy having a list of stuff to do as I go through [...]
To celebrate hitting 6 figures I'm going to take a look back at the games I've played and pick out some best/worst of's in various categories. Over the years I've picked up a few games just because they were cheap, or was able to borrow them from a mate. Some of these titles have proven true hidden gems. This award goes to the game that has exceeded my expectations for the game the most.
To celebrate hitting 6 figures I’m going to take a look back at the games I’ve played and pick out some best/worst of’s in various categories: Most Disappointing Game I still only buy games I want to play, my gamercard remains a true reflection of my personal taste, something I feel is lost when I [...]
To celebrate hitting 6 figures I'm going to take a look back at the games I've played and pick out some best/worst of's in various categories. Most Satisfying Game Completion; sometimes hitting 100% can be a right slog, other times it can be a cake walk, and some rare times it can be a genuinely rewarding achievement!
To celebrate hitting 6 figures I'm going to take a look back at the games I've played and pick out some best/worst of's in various categories, this time up it's turn for a worst of "award": Least Enjoyable Game Completion - I've suffered through more than my fair share of painful completions; this "award" especially acknowledges otherwise fun games where fun was thrown out of the window in the quest for that 1000/1000 feeling!
This award goes to the game that I had the most fun playing while going for 100% completion. It isn't necessarily a challenging 100%, or even a long 100%. These are the games where I never had to take myself away from just enjoying the game to grind out a bunch of achievements after the fun part was over because, let's face it, if you want to "complete" a game most of the time you are going to have to endure some gameplay you'd normally avoid.
