Gaming Snobbery - MW3 vs Skyrim

Gaming Snobbery – MW3 vs Skyrim

I wanted to tweet something this morning about this whole Skyrim vs Modern Warfare 3 vibe I see from fellow gamers on Twitter, Facebook or message boards/comments sections however 140 characters were not sufficient to contain my vitriol. They are both games I would be interested in trying although it’s unlikely I’ll purchase them anytime soon thanks to a continued addiction to Battlefield 3 and the fact that I’m poor.

So hyped. About to arrive at Kharg Island.

Still waiting.

In a queue for deployment. I’m now 4th out of 7. Never had to queue for a war before, can hear my comrades in battle. FRUSTRATING.

Now Listening 09/10/2011

Some of the playlist that I had on repeat while hammering a Burnout Crash level for a decent high score earlier today. Compiled this blog post more for my enjoyment than anything else but if you happen to like any of the tracks too then… *hi5*

Can You Guess What It Is Yet?

Can You Guess What It Is Yet?

About two years ago a friend made a couple of us purchase a ‘game’ from the indie section of XBL called Painting Party. It’s pretty much a basic MS Paint but with the added bonus (if you can call it that) of doodling on the same page as your friends. Depending on your mates this could be a fun, artistic, co-op experience. Or, if they’re like mine, a way to draw genitals of varying sizes, colours and degrees of arousal.

Erase and Rewind

Erase and Rewind

As I gazed at my pile of games today, undecided at what to play, I had the urge to start Fallout: New Vegas again. Two issues manifested themselves. Firstly, I no longer own the game as it was traded towards something else a while back.

Got a spare 69 pennies? Check out Dead Pixels

Got a spare 69 pennies? Check out Dead Pixels

I don’t “do” reviews but this afternoon I had a rare browse through the Xbox Live Indie games section and on a whim purchased Dead Pixels which will set you back a whole 80 MS Points. The first few minutes of gameplay gave me such an instant-happy that I just had to share this hidden gem of a game with you.
