Destiny and the Silent-ish Protagonist

Written by Anton Kardasis Read 1 time

Persuasive housemates and sheer curiosity to try first-hand the “digital orgasm” that is Destiny, incited me to courageously battle through the main campaign of this interplanetary onslaught. Better late than never you could say. In my recent attempts at blasting away the invading forces with my extensive arsenal, I have made what could be described as a light-hearted effort at following the main storyline. If a tale with anything resembling a heart unfurls in front of me, I’ll be thefirst to sit cross legged around the camp fire. But alas, shooting stuff is the main dish on the menu.

Updates

Written by Jon Carr Read 1 time

So I've been working on a variety of reviews lately and its been fun. I did the Chivalry review and I finished two hardware reviews but I'm out of time to post them as I have to dash off to my day job. 

I'm always tweaking the site here and there. I know there are some unfinished areas on the site so I plan on tidying those up tonight so everything is consistent and uniform in its presentation.

I really have a near endless task lisk, but I don't find this discouraging. On the contrary, I find it inspiring and I enjoy chipping away at it constantly.

Quake is still pretty good.

Written by Ryan Tamm Read 1 time

 I don’t actually want friends. I don’t actually want fancy hats. I want to shoot something. Quake Live reminded me of that.

So I got a gamepad

Written by Jon Carr Read 1 time

As the title of this post so astutely states, I have a gamepad. An Xbox 360 wireless controller to be precise. If you don't know me this wouldn't be significant. But if you did know me, you would understand that I've spent the last several years decrying, and otherwise avoiding gamepads for anything on a computer. So the fact that I now have one is curiously monumental in some fashion. Why would I get one? Mostly because I thought it would help me play Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Alas it did not.

Return of the iMac (Mine that is)

Written by Jon Carr Read 1 time

So as I've mentioned in my last few posts, my new iMac has been out for repairs. Not anymore! I finally got it back a few days ago after months of annoyance, agony and absurd incompetence from my local Apple Authorized Reseller. I'm not sure how they also got authorized to repair any Apple products because their inability to fix my machine was staggering. What should have taken 7-10 days literally took 50. But there's little use in moaning about the past, instead looking forward to the future is much better!

Random Moment of Awesomeness

Written by Shae Vizla Read 1 time

Picture this:

The world is against you. Every major world power has declared war on you (except Scotland and the Byzantine Empire), your nation has been excommunicated, and, against all odds, you're winning.

That's the situation that I found myself in on my most recent French Grand Campaign on Medieval II: Total War.

What I like about Dying Light (and what I don't.)

Written by Jon Carr Read 1 time

So I’ve played Dying Light for about 24 hours according to my Steam library. The game is immensely fun overall, though I have a few gripes. I thought to list what I like, and what I do not.

Pro's:

• The parkour is fantastic. It's nearly on par with Mirrors Edge and that's saying something. The sense of momentum as you dash about the city makes you feel fast, and pulling off tricky moves or saving yourself from near-death is thrilling. As you unlock higher agility skills and the grappling hook, it gets even better.

My computer should be getting fixed now.

Written by Jon Carr Read 1 time

So I brought my computer back to Small Dog Electronics for repair round two. I didn’t want to do this, but I had no other options, because it turns out there isn’t another authorized service provider in the immediate area. The closest one would be a few hours away and that doesn’t work for me.
