Playing Saints Row 3

It's been a little busy during the holidays, so I figured I'd do a quick check in. I've been playing Saints Row 3 (Saints Row The Third) on the PC and I've had a lot of fun with it so far. It's a great game that offers plenty of chaos and laughs. I absolutely love the story missions so far, and it's a blast to drive around the city in various cars causing all sorts of mayhem. The weapon variety is also nice and it's awesome to be able to call in a UAV to rain missiles from above when you get into a jam. Below are some assorted screenshots from my playthrough so far:

Need for Speed Most Wanted (video)

I've played a little bit of Need for Speed Most Wanted (rented through GameFly, I tend not to like arcade racing games... Forza 4 satisfies my racing needs) and I have to say it's interesting. It's definitely arcadey....Your car can change colors multiple times during a race just by driving through a repair booth which makes absolutely no sense to me....But anyway...I recorded a video. It looks awkard..I recorded it with my MacBook in Windows 8 using the camera app...Not sure if that has something to do with it or not, but it's sort of stuttery.

Remember the Palm Pilot / PDA?

Remember these?

The PDA is one of the many devices that you could argue no longer exists (or rather is no longer practical) due to the smart phone, and in large part due to the iPhone. Think about it. Why have a 'digital assistant' when an iPhone can perform all of its functions and also double as a phone. Why have a MP3 player, when again your phone can do it just as well (sure you can argue about space, but with everything being in the cloud these days I don't see that as a valid reason).

Just a thought. Check out the Palm Pilot ad in the link above. Used to be cutting edge technology, now it's something we take for granted.


Hey it's a blog!

So I've been liking the forums here and have finally started to interact with the community...only to be silenced by the 5 post a day limit for new users! Darn it!!! LOL. So I'm at 8 posts right now, so I need 17 4 days until I'm fully unleashed. OH well.

In the meantime I think I'm going to become a premium member in the near future. Sounds legit. Until then I guess I'll make a few blog posts. Until then feel free to check me out over at
