Okami 2, Where are you?

I abandoned this blog post after seeing an Okami sequel was well trodden territory with both our own dephoenix and elsewhere. After some friendly and possibly bias encouragement I then decided to post it anyway and hope reading experi...

 
 
 

11 Good Books I Read

Inspired by Mr. Batemans blog on reading progress: I am far to imposed by the reviews on GoodReads to throw my own into the mix so I thought I'll just make a simple list and keep it short that won't require literate analysis. This is o...

 
 
 

GTFT : Tengai Makyou | Far East of Eden

Part of a series of blogs called 'Give thanks for fans translations.' Okay, so some things just happen in life and you're around to witness them. Some days you're alive to see social upheaval, or present to watch Halley's comet pass ou...

 
 
 

10 Indie Games, One Weekend, Some Words.

I bought the World Land Trust bundle. It's the first bundle I bought since 2012 when I first downloaded Steam. The bundle states: 'Buy 66 items for $4.99 Regularly ~$486 Save 98%!' So that's about 0.075 a game which means I've paid mor...

 
 
 

10 Games I enjoyed but may never replay

Some games have surprised me on a replay. I enjoyed Simpsons Hit and Run more the second time. To my great surprise I replayed RE: code Veronica, I somehow replayed FF13, I enjoyed a second blast through BF: Bad company 2, I'm somehow ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

A plea for fan translation: Nostalgia 1907

A game that is often best known for Kojima's suspected copyright infringement of it. I demand this games resurrection. Or rather I'm pleading to the great translators of the internet. This game is an early industry martyrdom or a bomb...

 
 
 

12 Games Reviewed Quickly

I enjoy writing but that level of enjoyment does not always translate to quality reading. I now see that reviews take time along with thorough exploration of the content, applied with heart and effort ontop of research. Here are twelve...

 
 
 

Abridged via wires

Games have the potential to bring us together and since, in the present time, distance is barely an issue providing you connect by managing time zones and internet speeds, they can do it well. There was a time where me and a friend si...

 
 
 

12 Games I appreciate more after making one

For the record I have not published a game. The title should be corrected to 'after trying* to make one'. I took part in a now finished one. Once, as part of a course, I was assigned a lead role, in a group of three, to make a game pro...

 
 
 
 

My First Three Days with Far Cry 2

Over these three days I had enough game breaking glitches to end four or five play sessions but I persevered. If you do the same then rewards await. The game is haphazardly delightful. If you've played it you know what I mean.   D...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Shadow of Mordor vs Lego LotR

There was natural incentive to tumble down the Tolkien tunnel again over the last year. Given enough time reading you wish there was another medium to enjoy Middle-earth. Movies are good but the right game can be better. Until board ga...

 
 
 
 

5 Games I played not quite as intended

Everyone has an uncle or relative who plays the card games with a different rule. Five of hearts cancels the Ace of hearts or Aces are lower ranking rather than high or the Queen of hearts wipes out all lesser cards. You can play free ...

 
 
 

Rayman 2 Revisited

With Michel Ancel’s recent departure from the gaming industry and retreating to nature as is the most logical step for organic species, we can now turn our heads backwards to his first, and still best IMHO, foray into the world ...

 
 
 

10 of My Gaming Regrets

Inspired by: https://grindingdown.wordpress.com/category/games-i-regret/ My teenage years English teacher, the same that encouraged me to write which was a debatable choice, once said that to read a bad book was as worthwhile as readin...

 
 
 
 
 

We Did Not Deserve Viewtiful Joe

'Deserve’s got nothin to do with it' grumbles a gruff Clint Eastwood in the 1992 western film Unforgiven, spoken just before he takes aim down the barrel of his shotgun and fires, the implication being Gene Hackman's head was the...

 
 
 

Bully Deserved Better

Rockstar are now the kings of big scale game development. They have conquered quite literally the virtual world and even then built their own that we wanted to join. Rockstar now even makes games about mythic portraits of times in hist...

 
 
 

11 Games I've not played and I am ashamed

How many of us have too many games to play? Go to the site How Long To Beat Steam that totals up the number. How many? Are you ashamed? Good. So am I, but of myself, because I did the test too. This is just my list. We all have on...

 
 
 

7 Good Average Games

Not all games are born equal. Some go through hell before they even make it into life, some are a frankenstein of what it was meant to be. Some are just a few automated processes with some polygons slapped ontop. Some have all a person...

 
 

About Eggs&BrewsterJrone of us since 5:31 PM on 02.07.2021

These days I'm lucky if I finish 3 games a year, so I thought maybe I'll write about my old time war stories of memory cards and arcades might gets clicks and make that time seem worth it for more than just me. One can hope.

I enjoy reading, writing and gaming and sometimes those three all happen at once.
I enjoy old books, old music, old movies and pretty much getting on like a cantankerous old man.

I have more games in my-to-play list than I have remaining years on the earth.
Enjoy reading blogs rather than writing my own so I think I'm in the right place.

If you read what I wrote about what I played, then maybe you'll play what it was I wrote about and then you'll write about what you played so then I can read it and the circle prevails.
