Space Submarine!

published on Oct 30, 2007 Games

I have been playing the hell out of Silent Hunter 3 recently.  I have always enjoyed good submarine games, which can be tough to do in an age of few good submarine games heh..    The Silent Hunter games are excellent however, and I very much look forward to getting Silent Hunter 4 -- which is out already, but I've been forbidden to purchase since Christmas is coming up..

Games should be fun

published on Nov 05, 2007 Games, Rants!

I fear that so many new games that are being created by small developers, like Infinity Earth, are so against creating what they call a "WoW clone" that they aren't willing to even look at some of the stuff that WoW did right. Read More

By Crom, it's Age of Conan!

Mass Effect

published on Jun 13, 2008 Games Review

Game Review: Left 4 Dead

published on Jan 14, 2009 Games Review

published on Nov 13, 2010 Games Call of duty, Review
