Confirmed: I’m not getting the PC back anytime soon

This may fall under category of “bad parenting” but probably not. I hope not. Just don’t tell Lily, OK? My daughter saw all of the fun her brother has playing Team Fortress 2 and wanted in on the action. The kitchen iMac doesn’t play games very well but my PC does. So I set her up […]

I was all set to write a small Windows 10 review too

Yesterday I came home and did my usual routine. Ate dinner (I get home after 7 PM). Changed and watched some quick TV. Eventually headed to my PC to check the Interwebz (meaning: play FPS video games, my son wanted to show me something he earned on Steam). I turned on my monitor and my […]

Yes, of course I bought it

I just completed Crysis 3 (a $5 purchase that got me to buy a new NVidia graphic card…) and was looking for a new game to play. Since I’ve owned every Wolfenstein game that was ever produced this seemed like an easy choice to make. It’s a 40+ GB download from Steam. Wow.

10 days till Borderlands 2

Here’s the Wimoweh teaser video. I’ve already pre-ordered via Steam. The original Borderlands game is still very addictive and I’ve played each of the 4 character classes. I’ve been looking forward to this game for months.

I really had no choice but to buy it

This game was released on April 30th and my pal Bob let me know. It’s available on Steam how could I not buy it? I really enjoyed the original version because you had to sneak around and keep relocating. If the enemy in the game found you and you didn’t have time to prepare booby […]

Guess which new game I got?

There should be a Cave Johnson fan club. And no, not the 19th century congressman. The game is worth it, go and install it now, if only for the Life gives you Lemons speech.

Yep, F.E.A.R. 2 really is creepy

Okay memory, my bad. F.E.A.R. 2 really is creepy. I remembered it differently and the updated UI, graphics, etc. really make the game more playable. After I completed the first game again, I instead replayed the DLC add-on F.E.A.R. 2: Reborn. That went quickly and I then started F.E.A.R. 2 from scratch. The key bindings […]

Finished F.E.A.R. again

Once again I have completed F.E.A.R. and even played it in the dark. According to STEAM, it took me 9 hours. I must be out of practice because I had to quick save the game a lot. Due to the graphic violence and language I couldn’t play around the kids. The final scenes still gave […]

Over 5 years later and it’s still scary

Since I have the F.E.A.R. games all on STEAM, I’m playing them over again from scratch. Between the music and sudden appearance of creepy bad guys, the game still is frightening. This game was released in 2005. The graphics are definitely dated but the play is still very good. The next installment is supposed to […]

Upcoming 2011 video games

I’ve been waiting for the next installment of Crysis to come out but have recently gone back to playing some F.E.A.R. via Steam. Looks like F.E.A.R. 3 will be a worthwhile game. When the first game came out, the horror factor was so well done that some scenes scared the jeebies out of me. Even […]
