Snore

I'm in a bit of a rut for games lately. My 360 is out of commission, having achieved the RROD prophecy set out for it long ago. Got a few things to play on PC, but it's mostly older games. I love going back to classics to remember why they hold such a special place in my gaming heart, but I really want something that will test the limits of my PC. I invested in a Dell XPS back in May and I haven't really put it through its paces like I should have. I did download the Crysis demo awhile ago. It reminds me a lot of Doom 3...all engine and no gameplay. I know it's an easy comparison, but is this game any different from Far Cry? It's a giant island...there's smart soldiers who hunt your ass down if you're not smarter...I'm guessing monsters show up at some point, though they didn't in the demo. Rather, there were implied monsters. It felt a bit like LOST with Koreans.

But wait...they already have Koreans on LOST. Hmm...I might be on to something here.

Final exams start next week, so it's not that bad if I have a break from gaming. Maybe things will pick up in September a bit.

A Binary Choice

Siberia in June
Siberia in June


Just about finished my Max Payne characters. I think I've just got Jack Lupino, Nicole Horne and the Finito Brothers left. It looks like the image approval queue is next to nothing now, which makes for some quick points! Next up, I'll be playing through No One Lives Forever 2 and creating pages for the characters who aren't already up. The obvious ones like Archer and Magnus are already up, but I think I can get most of the villians from NOLF2 done.

Many Thanks!

I don't know if it's just random luck, but I just had a megaton of my pending stuff approved. If you're the person responsible and you happen to be reading this, I thank you.

Payne to the Max!

More fun today as my Vinnie Gognitti, Rico Muerte and Frankie "The Bat" Niagara pages got approved. I'll be adding some more Max Payne characters today. Off to play the second game and get some good screenshots!

Unacceptable Simian Casualites!

Huzzah, most of my No One Lives Forever stuff got approved. Got Tom Goodman, Volkov and Bruno Lawrie pages up. Someone beat me to Magnus Armstrong, but maybe I can contribute some screenshots of him to help out. I think tomorrow I'll draft an Inge Wagner page...hmm...who else is there? This is probably going to end with me installing NOLF again and frapsing half the game. Not a bad way to spend a Monday though! And now for no good reason...Cate Archer!
