Currently Playing - First Edition

August 10th, 2008

Games Games Games. Way too many. Here is what I’m currently playing and hoping to review / Discuss shortly.

Professor Layton and the Curious Village

Lost Odyssey

Final Fantasy Crisis Core

Braid

Geometry Wars 2

World of Warcraft

I think the video gaming world is moving way to fast for someone who works full time to keep up with, but I’ll always do my best until the day I die… or find something better to fill the time in this world :)

A personal Blizzard Update

July 19th, 2008

As mentioned earlier, I decided to revisit many of the old Blizzard games since they announced Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2. I set some goals and tried my best to accomplish them and this is just an update on those goals.

First and foremost.

1) Getting ranked in team games on Wc3. This wasn’t too hard since the patch reset. I only had to play around 30 games to do so, but I have a 50%+ winning record, so that makes me happy none-the-less. Here is a pic of this accomplishment :)

2) My second accomplishment was to revisit Diablo 2. It took a little bit to reorient myself to this game. It’s really interesting to realize how much games have improved in terms of user interface as well as graphics (both full motion video and sprite graphics.) Creating games and finding a good group of people is actually kind of hard I realize if you have never played this game. Luckily most of it came back and I was able to level up my Meteorb Sorc to 30 quickly and finish the game on normal. I may play more and try to rock out some better gear but for a revisit, this game was fun. I really hope Diablo 3 stays true to it’s roots while streamlining the game with the many modern advances in terms of interface and accessibility games today have taken on.

Death Strikes Again, … the Red Ring of Death I mean.

July 15th, 2008

Another victim has fallen fate to the mass murderous killer known as “The Red Ring”. Whether these horrifying murders are done by one individual or by a group is still unknown, but experts believe that the rate of crimes and location could not be pulled off by any single person.

“I just came home from a day at work and was getting ready to revisit some of my xbox live arcade games when I noticed something strange.” said the undisclosed victim. “By the time I realized what was done it was too late. I called the help hotline but was put on hold for a very long time. By the time I spoke to someone, there was not much I could do.”

Police have no suspects at this time but warn all gamers that they are not safe and to be weary. We ask that you turn on your Xbox 360 at least once a day before you too realize your loss before it’s too late.

Blizzard Announcements Cause me to go Retro

July 11th, 2008

With the entire new Blizzard Line-up coming out, between Diablo 3, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, and Starcraft 2, I’ve decided to replay and open my accounts in all 3.

My goals?

1) Get ranked in Random Team Games in Warcraft 3

2) Play Diablo 2 again, beat it online and get at least one character to level 50.

3) Play through both story modes in Wc3 and Starcraft.

Bonus) I may try some battle.net in starcraft, but since it’s THE RTS and I will most likely get stomped on, I may decide to just play story on this one. We’ll see.

Let’s see if I can accomplish all of this without losing all my free time. Wish me luck :) :)

Moving once more in less than 2 months

June 25th, 2008

Even though I just moved to a new apt, I’m already having to move again due to flooding and various other reasons. We already have a bigger and nicer place scoped out, and we are planning on signing the lease soon. Then I can FINALLY get back into the gaming news that I’ve been wanting to update.

Also, due to the flooding my PS2 died and my Xbox360 Red-Ringed ::sadface::

Good news though, I now own a PS3! :)

Well, I finally moved!

May 9th, 2008

I’m back! I moved from NYC to NJ and it was an ordeal let me tell you. I have in the works the ability to do more with this site and I’ll be starting to look for people to start writing for me soon (for free of course ;) )

Anyway, hope to be able to talk more about Brawl, GTA4, and a few other games that I’ve been up to!
