January 31st, 2010 — Gaming, PC, PS3, Xbox 360
It’s that time once again, time to realize that maybe I do play too many games, as my game library continues to swell and my free time continues to shrink. This month I added a few more games from Steam, picking up Psychonauts, the Freedom Force: Freedom Pack and the Eidos Collector Pack (which added 14 or so titles including Batman: Arkham Asylum, Tomb Raider: Underworld and fan favorite Kane and Lynch: Dead Men). Seventeen games for around $52 dollars, that’s not a bad deal at all. Thanks Steam!
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PC)
I’ve only spent about two hours with the Batman so far. Since, I’ve already played through the game once on the 360 I decided that this run through would be on the hardest difficulty. It’s very strange playing the game without a controller but, I’m getting used to it. It’s not a terribly long game so I’m hoping to actually get through it in a reasonable amount of time.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta/Demo (PC/360)
This past week EA released a PC beta and a 360 demo of “BFBC2″. Both versions are basically the same thing, having a single multi-player map and game mode. That hasn’t stopped me from sinking in a handful of hours with each and having a good bit of fun. I’ve never really followed the Battlefield series very closely, only playing a little of Battlefield 1942 quite a while ago. Anyway, I’ve been enjoying myself enough that I’m actually considering picking up the first game as well as pre-ordering from Steam. Playing on the 360 is fun and all but it just can’t match the quality of my PC.
Team Fortress 2 (PC)
I know two people that combined have about 700 hours of Team Fortress 2 play time. 700 hours! Hard to believe that I’ve only played just over 25 hours. I’ve been spending much more time with it lately, trying to unlock some of the Soldiers weapons. It took a bit of time but I did finally unlocked the Direct Hit, the rocket launcher with a faster firing rate but smaller splash damage. Why did I want it? That comes from my desire for a faster firing rocket, I’ve always been a fan of the Quake games so that may be where that comes from. Now, I just need to spend some time getting used to the new way of playing.
Anyway, that’s really it for this month, still working my way through some old games and not working my way through new ones.
December 19th, 2009 — Gaming, PS3, Sony
I finally took the leap this week – that’s right, I bought myself a PlayStation 3 and a copy inFAMOUS to go with it. inFAMOUS came out way back in May which carries the nice side benefit of not having to pay the full $60 price tag that new releases carry. I’ve only played a little bit so far but I’m really enjoying it. Hopefully, it will hold my interest long enough for me to finish it. I figure for the time being I’m going to stick to the console exclusives that have been released. So far, my short list includes:
On the new release side of things, I’m really looking forward to God of War III. But, it’s not out until March, which should hopefully give me enough time to actually finish off the second game. Anyway, I think I’m going to squeeze in some more play time while I can.

Madox makes a good point.Ã‚Â Sony hates us.
Sony has announced that the PSP 3.0 firmware is ready for those willing (stupid?) to upgrade.Ã‚Â Along with version 3.0 we finally get official word on PS1 emulation!Ã‚Â Remember the PS1 emulator for PSP?Ã‚Â Well, forget about it unless your one of the six or seven people who managed to buy a PS3.Ã‚Â That’s right a PS3 is required to play PS1 games. Ã‚Â How lame.
Thanks Sony – you jerks.
May 13th, 2006 — DS, Gaming, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360
As a gamer it seems that I have officially been left behind.
Sony and Microsoft have made it nearly impossible for me to continue playing into the new generation. I just don’t have the income to put down on these new Mr. Fancy-Pants video game systems and an HDTV – not to mention $60 a game. It will be quite sometime before I have enough extra cash on hand to drop on this stuff. So where does that leave me during the next generation? Well, for the most part it looks like I’ll be sticking to the retro gaming. I will also be picking up a DS Lite (with a protection plan so when Navy is released I can “break” mine for a quick exchange). I had a DS for a short time a while back but after the touch screen started coming up with dead pixels I quickly got rid of it. Along with the DS I’ll be getting the Datel MAX Media Launcher and the M3 Perfect mini-SD so I don’t have to carry around a bunch of GBA carts.
I’ve been sitting quietly by this week watching the next generation unfold and I’m not really all that excited. Sony has an awful price point and no games that I am looking forward to. Microsoft has Live Anywhere (and Vista) which sounds interesting but who knows if they can actually pull it off. And then there is Nintendo’s Wii – which, I admit, I am looking forward to. If it shapes up well I may even buy one on launch day. The virtual console for retro games does not interest me however, the idea of using it to show case small developers (ala Xbox Live) is good and might land us some very fun games. I might need to brush up on my Gamecube coding.
I’ve got a few more E3 reports and some videos to watch so…
