My Alternative Halo 4 Multiplayer Review

My Alternative Halo 4 Multiplayer Review

Due to overwhelming demand (two texts and a Facebook message), I am going to give a brief review of Halo 4. Please note, this is from the aspect of somebody who doesn’t really follow the lore, background or plot of Halo but simply a gamer who enjoys killing her friends and random strangers. I’ve yet to start the campaign but have dabbled in the multiplayer modes and co-op.

It’s mostly the same old Halo but with a fresh lick of paint.

Eurogamer Antics 2012

This year was a bit of a flying visit because I was only at the expo for the Saturday afternoon. It was spent in the company of Tracey from Sci-Fi-London and the Game Club Bournemouth posse.

Diary Of A Trainee Vault Hunter

Diary Of A Trainee Vault Hunter

APRIL 4
Arrived on Pandora. Bit snowy. Have a huge inventory but didn’t pack a coat. Should have listened to mum. Wasn’t fully paying attention at the briefing, too busy thinking about guns, not entirely sure what’s going on but I’ll roll with it.

APRIL 5
Training began today. I aced the Panicked Running Away test but need to work more on Walking Backwards Whilst Shooting. Accidentally lobbed a grenade when I meant to crouch down, oops. Tomorrows class is Trying To Jump Up Buildings And Rocks That Look Do-Able But Really Aren’t So Eventually You Give Up.

How The Web Looked In 1996

How The Web Looked In 1996

The other night I was browsing the internet, probably for porn, but if you happen to be my mum, dad or sister reading this then I was definitely job hunting. One of the search results took me down a black hole of archived Geocities pages, or ‘Homesteads’ as they used to be called. I tried to find some of my own personal late-90s Geocities sites without much luck but I can assure you that I was the go-to spot on the internet if you fancied browsing a midi-filled fansite for The Lost Boys or Adam Garcia. I snapped some screenshots of these now retro Geocities nuggets lest they be lost forever. Welcome to the Internet circa 1996.

Popping My Minecraft Cherry (Xbox)

Popping My Minecraft Cherry (Xbox)

This isn’t really a review as such. I don’t do reviews because it takes time, patience and effort. However, when Minecraft was released on Xbox this week I struggled to find a review entirely from the perspective of a complete newcomer. Most seemed to be written by PC gamers who spent a lot of their review talking about the PC version. I understand this Xbox release is lacking a lot of features which is a major bummer (yeah, I said “major bummer”, this is why I don’t write proper reviews) but that doesn’t really help us console folk. Those that replied to my twitter-plea were all interested in the views of a newbie so here’s mine. It may or may not help you decide whether to try the game, you could just play the trial which is WAY more fun than reading this.

The Return Of Sofa Gaming

The Return Of Sofa Gaming

I am a multiplayer gamer. At home most of my recent gaming fixes have been coming from Battlefield 3 conquest games which I’ve currently poured 86+ hours into (my parents would be so proud). If I’m not on BF3 then I’m trying to round up friends into Left 4 Dead or bugging them to do the Saints Row 3 co-op with me. Rarely am I found on a single player game. I do work through campaigns and have completed the likes of Modern Warfare 3 and Arkham City in recent months but so many titles lay half-played because frolicking online with friends will distract me every time.
