    Loving Starcraft 2 Again

    Well, I honestly didn't think it'd happen, but somehow I've been sucked back into Starcraft 2, just like I did on spring break two years ago. Of course, that was largely due to the release of Heart o...

    Trying to Learn Disgaea 4

    First: a little bit of background. Tactical RPG's have always interested me, and I've dabbled with the genre here and there, but haven't ever become truly invested in any particular game. Most of the ...

    For the Love of Puzzle Games

    Recently, I've had the urge to start getting into puzzle games. I'm talking straight-forward, addictive 2D puzzle games, along the lines (no pun intended) of Tetris and Lumines. The urge could have co...

    My Longest Break From Games Ever (Old PC Game Suggestions?)

    Around mid-October of last year, I stopped playing games regularly. Of course there have been times over the years when my playing habits have risen and declined, but never to this degree. For a long...

    Why I Prefer Gameplay Over Story (and Duke Nukem 3D is Fantastic)

    Mere seconds into Duke Nukem 3D, and the action has begun. There is no opening cutscene, nothing to set the stage for the ensuing chaos, only the player, a pistol, and angry aliens. The question is,...

    Age of Empires, Metal Gear Solid, Saints Row and The Long Dark (Recent Purchases)

    It’s been a while since I’ve posted on Giantbomb, so I thought I’d write a bit about the games I’ve purchased recently. I’ve gone on something of a shopping spree, and now face the problem(?) of deci...

    First Impressions of Far Cry 4

    After the critical and commercial success of Far Cry 3, it’s unsurprising that the sequel is, well, unsurprising. From the leveling and crafting systems to all aspects of mission structure, Far Cry 4...

    Shameless Self-Promotion

    I wrote on GB over the summer, but have since stopped as my interest in games basically disappeared. I still write, mainly about music on my blog at http://noahtheboa999.wordpress.com/.If you enjoyed ...

    Thoughts on "Under a Funeral Moon"

    [Please be aware that most of my album impressions are from first listen. This is not so much an in-depth critique, as it is my initial thoughts of an album]From what I can tell, repetition is at the ...

    Writing About Music

    Recently, music has completely taken over my writing habits. Not only have I stopped writing about games, I've found myself playing them less and less, as they often require me to pay attention to a s...

    2014 Is Turning Around

    I previously said I felt there weren't enough good games coming out this year, which I would like to correct. Not only are there some great games coming out this year, they are genuinely unique from e...

    Thoughts on 2014 So Far

    I don't have much to write about because all I've been playing is Destiny and I don't want to write about that again. I will say I've been a little dissapointed with the games that have come out so f...

    Thoughts at Level 22

    After playing Destiny pretty much non-stop for the past 4 days, I can safely say that I'm hooked. Whether or not this means I think the game is great though, well that's an entirely different story. ...

    Impressions At Level 10

    Successfully blending two distinct game genres is not an easy task, especially when one of the two genres is an MMO. Destiny, at least how it stands as an initial product, does a very good job of off...

    I Want to Play Destiny

    Even after hearing a lot of negative feedback, much of which sounds entirely justified, I still want to play Destiny. $70 is a lot to spend on a game that I could very well find repetitive and dull, ...

    Still Trucking Along in Monster Hunter

    A couple nights ago, I fought the Great Jaggi (the first large monster in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, if I'm not mistaken) around 7-8 times. You see, after doing some research online I found that the g...

    I've Started Playing Monster Hunter Tri

    It took quite a few tries, but I've finally gotten into the behemoth that is Monster Hunter. This Japanese phenomena has never done particularly well in the western market, but of course everyone kno...

    Dirt 3 Thoughts

    Because they were both on sale, I decided to pick up Dirt 3 and F1 2012 on Steam. I've only played Dirt so far, but after sinking well over 5 hours into it in a single day, I think it's safe to say I...

    Music + Games (2)

    Not only have I listened to a fair bit of music in the past few days, I'm also playing games again after a week-or-so break. Some of the album thought go more in-depth than others, because some intere...
