2011 is looking expensive.
Let’s take a brief walk through some of the most anticipated games coming out in 2011, shall we? It’s looking to be one hell of a year for video games. I’m not personally looking forward to all of these, but I think they’re all highly anticipated by someone, even if not always myself. In no particular order, here’s a list of 2010’s big name titles: Dead Space...
Top 5 Games of 2010
I’ve picked the movies, I’ve picked the albums… as a gamer, I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t pick the top 5 games of 2010. This is gonna be a tough one for me, let’s kick this pig. 5) Metro 2033 Here’s a game that didn’t get the love it deserved. With an rpg style collection and inventory system similar to Fallout, this...
Seriously though, that movie was terrible.
Super Meat Boy is a new addiction of mine, and it appears I got in on it just in time as the PC version is getting an update in mid-January that’s adding a whole new chapter, as well as a level editor that let’s players create and submit their own level. This already massively replayable game just gained endless replay value. SICCCCCK. http://pc.ign.com/articles/114/1141619p1.html
I think we need to talk about your “Best of 2010” awards. http://www.gamespot.com/best-of-2010/introduction/index.html Red Dead Redemption won like 70% of them. Brilliant games like Blur, The Ball, Darksiders, Bloody Good Time, Beat Hazard, or Mafia II didn’t even so much as get a nomination much less win an award. Why don’t you suck Rockstars dick some more? I realize...
Help me win Borderlands? Pleaseeeeee?
So, I’ve been pretty confident that I’d win a free copy of Borderlands and was pretty excited about it, but just a couple days before the end of the contest someone else finally decided to try to win to. I’m still winning, but barely (nobody had really been competing, so I hadn’t tried that hard), and you can help me win. The process is simple: Do you have a youtube...
Top 5 Movies of 2010
Let me preface this list by saying that I have yet to see 127 Hours, but I am almost certain that it deserves to be on this list. However, from a critic’s standpoint I can’t judge the film until I have seen it, and therefore can’t put it on this list. It’s a shame really, because I feel it would definitely beat my choice for number 5, if not a couple more. That being said,...
Decent deals today.
http://store.steampowered.com/ There’s definitely some good ones in there today. I’d buy Crysis Maximum Edition if you haven’t played either Crysis yet. Just make sure your PC can run them, it’s graphics are intense. Crysis Maximum Edition includes Crysis and Crysis: Warhead for only $9.99, it’s a steal for two amazing singleplayer FPS titles. Dirt 2 is also on sale...
Homefront getting some love.
http://games.news24.com/index.php/looking-forward-to-2011-part-one/ I’ve been excited about this one for a few months now. Nice to know I’m not the only person.
The insomnia, fueled by my emotions, thief of sanity.
Yeah, it was pretty good. Not the best movie I’ve seen this year, but hey, I liked it more than Tron.
The sales on steam today succccccccccck. Unless of course you still don’t own Killing Floor or Mirror’s Edge. In which case shame on you, but they’re both $5 today so grab them if you really suck that hard. Buy them here
I wonder how much he gets paid.
GAY PEOPLE ARE RAPISTS.
I thought I would share an argument I had with my mother this morning as I was getting ready to go to work. It should be noted that I wasn’t attempting to start an argument, but rather simply commenting on something that the news commentators were talking about. One of the commentators made some remark about the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that went...
On second thought.
Maybe I should start deleting things from my inbox more once at the end of each semester. Deleting 1500 emails takes way too damn long.
Bonus points if you catch the science joke here.
WHAT SORT OF HELLSPAWN DECIDED THAT I HAVE TO BE AT WORK AT 9AM FOR THE NEXT 4 DAYS STRAIGHT? MY BRAIN DOES NOT FUNCTION IN THE MORNINGS.
Beating the horse to death.
I know I keep talking about Indie Games like wildfire. I know I’m beating the horse to death. I know. But I just wanted to use Super Meat Boy as an example to talk about something larger in video games as a whole. So, as my previous post talks about Super Meat Boy is a platformer that references, and feels very similar to old unforgiving platformers of my childhood. SMB manages to...

On Indie Games.
This week has been chock full of sales, whether it be in stores, on steam, or on random websites (like the Humble Indie Bundle I posted). One thing that’s been particularly interesting about this week is how many indie games I’ve been able to pick up for next to nothing. Now, normally I’ve never been much into indie games. They defeated the purpose of having eyefinity (which I...
Alright, which one of you jerks decided not tell me this game was awesome? I remember it coming out about a year ago, but didn’t pick it up because it cost so much. Steam sales like crazy this week, so I picked it up for $10. Holy crapshit, what a fun time. Reminds me of the original Devil May Cry. In hindsight though, I probably shouldn’t have set it on the hardest difficulty…...
The Insomniac's Ballad
This is a playlist I made in my head last night when I couldn’t sleep. My mind wandered to a certain individual, and songs started to fill my head that reminded me of them.
Humble Indie Bundle #2
So I feel like it would be a crime not to repost this. This is a genius idea in indie game marketing. The basic concept is as follows: How much are you willing to pay for five awesome indie games? $1000? Fine by them. $100? Fine by them. $10? Fine by them. $1? Fine by them. $0.10? Fine by them. $0.01? FINE. BY. THEM. So whats the catch? Well, they’re hoping that people will be humble...
Top 5 Albums of 2010
5) Linkin Park - A Thousand Suns As someone who never listens to Linkin Park, I found this album a wonderful creative work from them. It was nice to see Mike Shinoda really put his ideas at work (as he was always the more talented of the two creative minds) and I really felt his influence from Fort Minor come through here. The album was a near perfect win for me, except the very last track...
We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first...
Beat Hazard →
I bought this game this week because it was on sale on steam. Steam is offering it for $4.99, but if you buy the Indie Beat Pack (which is what I bought) it includes this game plus 4 other games (Chime, Bit.Trip.Beat, Rhythm Zone, and Turba) for the same exact price of $4.99. Hard to argue with less than a dollar per game. I tried a couple of the other games… RZ was basically a guitar hero...
Houston, we have an asshole.
Well, now I’ve done it. I’ve decided to make a tumblr, and jump into the world of blogging done easy. My primary reason for never having a blog was simply that I was too lazy to actually bother putting time and effort into coding and designing it, but the interwebz seems to have fixed that problem for me. Now I can rant and rave without having to do any real work. In case you...
