Gaming Shame Help: the results are in!

23 Jan

So last week I asked for the help of the internet to decide for me which game off of my gaming shame list I should tackle first. I made a little video blog with the top 6 games on my list, and asked you to vote on which you think is the best start! The choice was between: Portal 2, Halo 4, Twilight Princess, The Uncharted series, Final Fantasy XIII/XIII-2, and the Tomb Raider Trilogy!

Well the votes have been tallied and it came down to Portal 2 and the Uncharted series!

fwee!

fwee!

that's quite the punch!

that’s quite the punch!

AC3 is fun, and Connor’s okay, I guess

21 Jan

I apologize for being such a ghost… this post is long overdue. Been busy. (I know, aren’t we all?)

That doesn’t mean I didn’t make time for video games! It’s cathartic – I need it!

Now I’ll finally write about playing them again. First… Assassin’s Creed III.

Geekishly frivolous – I got the limited edition with the little statue and stuff.

PVP Podcast Ep.2 – Holiday Wrap Up

17 Jan

Dave and I got together last week to record our first podcast of 2013! It’s a slow time of year for new releases and news, so we mostly talked about what we got for Christmas, and what we played and watched on our break away from school! We also talked the new Pokemon XY announcement, the upcoming Marvel LEGO game, and how Dave was wrong! (I like that part the best).

well, he knows now!

well, he knows now!

Gaming Shame Help!

14 Jan

I started in on my New Years resolutions last week by striking off (and subsequently adding back) some of the movies and TV shows on my Netflix instant queue. This week, I want to start working on my gaming back log. It will take me the most time by far, and with about 25 (!!!) titles unfinished or untouched I have no idea where to star. So instead of stressing about it and then not choosing everything, I’m going to leave it up to you guys instead!

I choose ... well, that's up to you!

I choose … well, that’s up to you!

Backlog Update One: Netflix instant queue

7 Jan

As part of my New Years resolutions I’ve been trying to catch up on my media backlog, which includes my Netflix instant queue. And holy have I found this whole queue idea to be a slippery slope. Every time you add something new, or remove something you’ve already watched, Netflix likes to show you other things you probably missed and might like. And I always end up adding at least a couple of them, even if I had never heard of it before. I don’t know how many times I’ve finished off a movie or show only to add back 3 in its stead.

It's a trap!
