Stew Cassidy and the Sundance Lib

Stew Cassidy and the Sundance Lib

I was going to start by saying this blog post is rather self-indulgent but aren’t they all really? Tonight I spent hours in Red Dead Redemption multiplayer with Stew and after an initial couple of gang hideouts, I decided to drag him all the way across the map (via horse and carriage) to the Tall Trees area. We spent the rest of the time hunting bears, being chased by bears, getting killed by bears and generally mucking about.

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.

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. Not having the actual game tends to put the kibosh on things. Secondly, I wanted to replay the game as I did the first time around.
