December Video Game Report

XCOM: Enemy Unknown (15 hours): I wanted to finish XCOM: Enemy Unknown before 2015 was over and I succeeded. Despite being screwed over by scripting errors in the big “dungeons”, I had a lot of fun with the game. The ending was slightly anti-climactic, but then again, this game only had the barest of storylines. […]

October Video Games

Team Fortress 2 (33 hours): I’m a seasonal Team Fortress 2 player. Although I play it here and there at any time of year, I tend to really play a lot during October for the special Halloween missions. This year Valve was busy working on a new mode that was released earlier this week so […]

September 2015 Video Games Report

The Witcher ( 2 hours): Yeah, so the first video I recorded in September is missing the video game footage. Whoops! Either way, I finished The Witcher this month. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned, this is another game I tried thanks to the Giant Bomb guys – specifically Vinnie. I thought the game was overall […]

August 2015 Video Games Report

Civilization 5 (14 hours): Dan and Dave finally started playing their multiplayer turns again. YAY! The Witcher (14 hour): Finally was able to find some uninterrupted gaming time. Here’s the video! If you’re interested in watching, it goes from session 25 through 40 (or more if I forget to update this section before I publish) […]

Video Games Report March 2014

The Witcher (15 hours) Assassin’s Creed was the first game series Vinnie of Giant Bomb convinced me to try by talking about it endlessly on the Bombcast. The Witcher is the second. (This is why I miss his voice on that podcast so much) It has turned out to be a lot more fun than […]

February Video Games

Civilization V (30 minutes) – We got a few turns in our multiplayer games, but other important things (like planning weddings, perhaps) have kept my brothers from sending me new turns. Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ (38 minutes) – I got it as part of a Humble Bundle because eventually my PS3 will die or be […]

January Video Games Report

Civilization: Beyond Earth (7 hrs): This game was a great evolution on Civ V. I enjoyed that they continued with the same sense of humor. I also thought they did a good job evolving things so that it felt different enough. It’ll probably take a few games before I get the hang of all the […]

2014 Video Games Report and Game of the Year

This year I did not play as many new games as in previous years. I was deep in my graduate degree and most of my free time was during work travel. Since I don’t have a powerful laptop (and Steam on Linux was just taking off early on this year anyway), most of that time […]

February Video Game Report: Civ, Analogue & Hate Plus Review

Civilization V ( 20 hrs): Lefties Dido tried to be opportunistic and attack me while I was at war with the Celts. Now she is facing my wrath. I will not stop until she has been wiped off the map. Left a contingent behind to make sure the Celts don’t get cute. About to pay […]

Jan 2014 Video Game Report

Poker Night 2 (8 hrs) – I find Poker Night 2 to be a bit harder than the original. Not sure if they upped the AI or changed anything about it, but I find it a lot harder to win Texas Hold ‘Em in PN2. Luckily, this game also includes Omaha Hold ‘Em and I […]

Dec 2013 Video Games Report

Civilization 5 (5 hours): Still haven’t caught up on the blog posts. Still entirely consists of games with Dan and Dave. Dan gifted me the latest expansion pack during the Winter Steam Sale, so I may fire up a solo game. Time will tell – I still have a ton of indie games from Humble […]

November Video Games Report

Civ V (<1hr): Continued to play with Dan and Dave. Again, hopefully there’ll be some updates soon. Skullgirls (<1hr): This game is a ridiculous fighting game that doesn’t take itself too seriously when it comes to the story. It’s a return to the fun of fighting games of the 1990s. At the same time, the […]

September Video Games (Includes LIMBO Review Part 1)

Civilization V (8 hours) – Keep following the tags (Civ V: Lefties and Civ V: Mesa Bros ) or check out my Saturday posts (although this week I didn’t have one) LIMBO (3 hours) – Here is my review of the game up to what I finished in September: The order in which I play […]
