Potter, Portal 2, CityVille, Game of Thrones and Fringe

Hi Hi Hi, Hi there. Long time no see. whatcha' been up to and that? interesting, interesting. RIGHT, enough about you let's talk about me.

I have been busy. No time for blogs. I'm currently helping final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It's been a really interesting process - I have learnt LOADS by the way which is nice and rather useful. Hey look, here is the trailer:

I have played/completed it so many times now that I reckon I am probably the best in the world at it...serious, super serious!


Portal 2, blah blah blah, Stephen Merchant is in it, blah blah blah amazing game mind bending puzzles, blah blah blah best game ever made. Blah blah blah trailer:

Starting playing CityVille on FaceBook for my sins. I sometimes imagine sitting in a dark room doing crack...no idea why that popped in my head. Anyway I would like to say don't play it. It's addicitve, expensive and leaves you with an empty hollow feeling inside that can only been filled with...guess what...MORE CITYVILLE. Excuse me while I check myself in to rehab.

Remember when I used to talk about TV? HA!. Well here goes:

Game of Thrones, high-fantasy with Sean Bean. The intro looks like a computer game.

It's a good watch, mega production values. All the main characters wear dirty cloaks with fur-lined hoods, and all the birds get their boobs out. It's worth a watch. Conan meets Camelot. Hey that's pretty good...NO ONE STEAL THAT ITS MINE!

And finally Fringe!

Tis good, very good. It's almost over though. If Lost was a show about religion then Fringe is most definitely about science - Man of science, man of faith...remember that geeks?


By the way, if your reading this GREG, SASHA or anyone else that used to post here. START POSTING AGAIN YOU LOSERS. Also let me know if I have spelt anything wrong. Also grammer, I have issues with grammer.

Amnesia: The Dark Decent - To Scared to Play

Hello, it seems to be a new year. Great I suppose. I have a cold and a headache. I have run out of things to buy to make me feel better, I'm bored of all the food that normally cheers me up; like cheese and anchovies.

So I have been playing a game instead to try and brighten the mood (I do this sometimes).

Amnesia: The Dark Decent. An indie game that has received some rather good reviews.

It's a first person horror game. You have no guns, no bombs, no swords and no fists...wait you have fists but you're not allowed to swing them in anger. Your only chance of survival is to run, run far far away and hide in a cupboard somewhere. No joke, I have only discovered one type of ghoulish monster so far, he has floppy skin and a scary moan. when I first encountered him, I ran and hid in a cupboard (It's bloody good strategy as it turns out, one that I might apply in the real world when things get tough).

There is a story. It's inspired by some guy called Lovecraft or something - I have never heard of him. You probably have, your probably thinking how come this guy has never heard of H.P Lovecraft, the philistine.

Anyway you need to travel through this castle to the secret chamber...hmmm I think that's right. It's a tough journey only because of the fact that the game is FAR too scary to play for more than an hour. There are tons of creepy sound effects, screams, bugs that crawl over your face as slowly drift in to madness. That's one of the main game-mechanics; trying not to go mad - cool huh? It's dark, horrible and I'm determined to finish it.

Tonight I'm going to attack it with a bottle of vodka, hopefully I will be able to pluck up the courage to delve deeper.

If you don't here from me for a while I could be in therapy, or slumped at my keyboard.
