HAHAHUGOSHORTCODE-0xc001668a00-1-HBHB Dead Space (2008) *WARNING! This post contains spoilers! I did another Long Jump podcast with the Jump Crouch folks: Aaron McNair, Orrin Luc, and the dark web only Kevin McNair on The Jump Crouch Podcast As this is now my tradition, here are my expanded thoughts that I mostly expressed on the episode. I played dead space when I was still in my PCMR snobbery before we even called it that. Read More...

Games of 2021

A few friends of mine do a Podcast called The Jump Crouch and they asked if I wanted to do a quick phone-in recording of my 2021 year in gaming. Absolutely. I also think I can flesh out a bit more since I was compressing as much as I could for time. I went ahead and scoured my purchases and playtimes across: Steam Epic Games UPlay Battle.net Xbox PSN With that, here is the full 2021 play list: Read More...

amnesia the dark descent

published on
Amnesia is a great horror game, and one of the most immersive games I have played. It has a dark HP Lovecraft inspired story that you, the protagonist Daniel discovery throughout the game through flashbacks and diary notes. The game starts off with you, Daniel, waking up in a Prussian castle with a note along the lines of, “Hello me, I took something to make me forget the terrible things that have happened.

Clive Barker's Jericho, and the his better game

published on
HAHAHUGOSHORTCODE-0xc000a93900-1-HBHB Clive Barker’s Jericho I was expecting a lot from this game, I’ve always liked Clive Barker’s horror (not so much the odd S&M aspect though) and I was happy to see that Codemasters (publisher of Overlord, another great game) was involved. The first hint I should have taken was if was also for consoles, and FPS’s on a console are almost always watered down. I know thats a little general, and negative and I shouldn’t say things like that but smaller titles ( not something like Bioshock or Half Life 2 ) tend to take less risks, and a big risk is to make a complicated FPS with a decent story.

Bioshock

HAHAHUGOSHORTCODE-0xc000a22000-1-HBHB Bioshock I finally beat this game last night, so now I can resume the rest of my life. Or I could replay it as a “harvester”, which should actually be worth it as my own life is not even close to being as interesting as Bioshock. I could list off a bunch of reasons why its that great of a game, but listing off those things is like reading the back of the box (which I don’t have really, I bought it on Steam ). Read More...

Sherlock Holmes the Awakened

published on
Sherlock Holmes - The Awakened A solid adventure game, and it has a price point of $30 bucks, AND you can download the game from the companies online store. I could only be a little happier if it showed up on Steam just so I could manage it there. So you play mainly as Sherlock, and sometimes as Doctor Watson, to investigate a kidnapping. Turns into a great HP Lovecraft inspired horror with dismemberment, sacrifices, and you also visit an asylum. Read More...

STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl

published on
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl I’m about to subscribe to my theory of HAHAHUGOSHORTCODE-0xc001010a00-1-HBHB because most of my favorite games ( which are almost always RPG based ) are released with a lot of scrÄ«pting, dialog, and a few very critical bugs. I’m always willing to play the game despite its flaws, and I don’t mind starting all over from scratch since the first run is spent getting used to the style and environment of the game. Read More...
