My Sentiments Exactly

24 Jun

More fun while chillin’ in Europe – this time Amsterdam (which was awesome, btw – definitely could live there).

not really sure what any of this stuff had to do with Mario

Between our adventures, I found the following t-shirt in an H&M store. Being a geek is cool now, didn’t you know? Continue reading

Assassins Creed Climbing is Totally Realistic

18 Jun

So I’ve been playing Assassins Creed a lot lately.

In Europe playing PS3 – I’ve got quite a double chin for a skinny guy.

And I’ve been thinking… man, Ezio makes that shit look so easy. Climbing walls? Yeah right, like there are that many ledges and little things to grab.

But here I am in Europe, and yeah, it really does look like that. So I had to try it myself…

In Europe, Still Gaming – Part 1

10 Jun

So we’re in Europe on vacation, visiting Ceratopz parents in Belgium – and of course, we’re hitting as much of this place as we can while we’re here. So far, it’s been awesome

– for example, Brussels:

chillin in Brussels, having a beer in the grande place

But between our little day or two excursions to awesome European towns, we are having a bit of down time at her parents house. So, what did we bring with us?

Why I play a game series backwards

16 May

I was a PC gamer for a long time, and didn’t get any consoles after SNES until we got our PS3. So basically, I’m late to the party, and I got a lot of catching up to do. But I don’t do things in order…

I got God of War 3, finished that, then got the earlier games.

Played Uncharted 2 (before 3 came out), finished that, so then went and got the first.

I got a platinum trophy in Skyrim (yeah I’m bragging), and I have Oblivion waiting on the shelf.

And now I’m playing Assassins Creed 2, because I recently played AC2: Revelations.

And yeah, I’ll probably play the first one last.

Nerd Rage: Dead Island

3 May

OMGWTF this game is so fun that I absolutely MUST keep playing, yet so FRUSTRATING that I just want to burn a house down and/or devour children’s souls.

Don’t get me wrong. This game can be a gem sometimes, especially running over zombies – seriously, it’s about time I got to do that. And the zombie deaths are always really random looking with limbs flying around and lots of blood spattering. Just what I was hoping for.

But here’s a list of what gives me nerd rage about Dead Island:

fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Loading Screen: Toniolio

29 Apr

Yes, I’m a nerd in the general sense (but who isn’t now that it’s hip), grew up a fan of Star Wars and what not. But that’s generic information – I’d like to talk about my special love affair with video games.

I can’t remember when I started gaming.

I remember my oldest brother had an Atari, and my middle brother had a commodore 64.

My favorite: maniac mansion.

Maniac Mansion
