Halo 2 and Windows Vista

Friday, February 10th, 2006

Okay. So. We’ve got Halo on the Xbox. Later released on the PC. It was alright. They left out the co-op one of the biggest boons to the game imo, and the controls were all still mapped like a gamepad. Whatever.
Halo 2 gets released and we all wait and wonder when they’ll make a PC […]

Condemned Criminal Origins

Monday, January 30th, 2006

And this one will wrap up the last of the FPS games I’ve tried out for the Xbox 360 so far. This one, actually held my co-w0rker Don and mine’s attention for a little bit longer. There seemed to be a storyline that was beginning to develop, I still couldn’t hear a damn word that […]

Perfect Dark Zero

Friday, January 27th, 2006

Zero. Well atleast the game knows it.
I boot up the game. Watch the screaming James Bond intro. Seriously. If Ms. Dark had been nude it would have been a killer James Bond opener. After having my brain maligned by that, I get into the game and immediately see “Co-op” And think. OHH SWEET. This game […]

King Kong

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

So with our new toy at work, I got to try out King Kong for the xbox. I had stayed late after work in order to get some time on it without infringing on my other..”duties” and one of my work buds decided that he had had enough work for the time being and came […]

Uber Soldier

Monday, January 23rd, 2006

I remember having seen a video of this somewhere. I can’t remember where though. It didn’t look too bad. The blood effect on the screen, while somewhat novel, looked like it just got in the way. Yes, my screen is bloody from my own body and possibly that of the thousand other evil Nazis I […]

WWII again, for the 8th time

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

When I first saw this article I thought to myself
“OH neat. An add-on….Wait. Medal of Honor. Which one do I have? Bf..no..Is it Medal of Honor? No no. Ohh right. Call of Duty.” I know it was an important time in our history, and I’m glad we’ve all gotten to re-live it and see […]

Games to Movies

Saturday, January 7th, 2006

In a recent post I talked about the Doom movie and the possibility of a Wolfenstein one. Well. Last night I had the opportunity to see Blood Rayne.
It was painful. You can seen in a recent post from the Play-Girlz that Ingrid managed to post some quick thoughts I had on the movie. Let […]

PC or Console

Thursday, January 5th, 2006

Bit of an interesting topic. Though it’s going to be obviously one-sided the way I talk about it. Heh heh.
Bit of news this morning that UT2007 was going to be released on both the PS3 and PC. There was some confusion as to which one it would go to first, and I’m glad that Epic/Atari […]

The Battlefield of sucking.

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006

Wow. That title could just go so many ways. But hopefully I’ll clarify. Battlefield 2. Now, to start off. I have not played this game. I played its predecessor, but not it. I’m not horribly enthused about war games, World War 2 or otherwise. So to hear that this was a great game with awesome […]

The Hype wheel goes round an’ round

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006

So I was looking around and I found this little article
And I thought to myself. They’re still making Ghost Recon games? I hated that game. It was slow, clumsy, and you could never see anyone, but the AI could ALWAYS see you. Now, I can understand that newer iterations may have changed some of […]
