Crysis 2 & Surgery

Crysis 2 boxI know it's a few weeks late, but i've played through the next big gaming release of the year: Crysis 2. Overall i'd have to say i'm a bit disappointed.

Although the visuals of the game were pretty amazing, they didn't really have the same 'wow' effect that the first game did about 4 years ago.

The plot in the game was also pretty pathetic. They barely made any reference to the storyline of the first game (which ended without much closure at all), rather just sweeping it under the rug hoping that no-one would really notice, and changing … Read more →

Inspections, de Blob 2, Tests

de Blob 2It's been a hectic few weeks. The past two weeks has seen our first set of real-estate inspections for the unit. Part of me is hoping it'll sell quickly, and the other part hopes it won't happen too soon. I can't say i'm looking forward to moving properly to the other house.

This past week i got Little Big Planet 2 on the PS3. What is note-worthy about me playing through this game is that I did it entirely co-op … Read more →

Tron Legacy & Mass Effect

Today was the last day before I go back to work tomorrow, and i've taken advantage of the past few days to relax before the fun of migrating the entire office server infrastructure to a dedicated data centre begins.

Mass EffectI felt like playing through an RPG, and probably one of the biggest RPGs that I haven't touched at all in recent years has been the Mass Effect series. The first Mass Effect game was only $15 on Steam, so i finally decided to get it and see what all the fuss was about.

I just finished the game today, and … Read more →
