I requested a post from, my then, pre-teen nephew, about what games he was playing and what he enjoyed, here’s his eloquent reasoned response 🙂 Me and my friends have recently been noticing the change in gaming graphics, and I decided to collect my favourite retro games. 5. X-Com – OK there is not a great fan base for this game and it did die out quick but this game…

I can’t believe it took me so long to find GreaseMonkey, from Greasepot: Greasemonkey is a user script manager. It is an extension for the Firefox web browser. So what does it do? It adds user created functionality to the web sites you use. Very easy to use: install the firefox plugin  search userscripts.org click install The 1st script I tried deleted all of my 6 months posts on Reddit.…

Long time no speak

Lots on since Novemeber: had to do a dash back to Blighty totally un-impressed with MW3 lvl 81 ~300 hours into Skyrim discovered the eloquent Scroobious Pip picked up playing the stylophone More posts soon, wish I’d kept a blog of my Skyrim activity.

Minecraft is a smash hit game made by team mojang and this is just a little tutorial on surviving,building and living in a easy fashion 1. What to do first?- As soon as you enter the world you need to knock down trees.Take down around 3 trees then start to craft 1. Enemy’s- There are multiple enemys in the game and these are a few- creeper- Green stick like creature…

some are fantastic! Long time no post, games & work taking up my time & we don’t talk of my newly found reddit affliction. The one game that has been taking up a copious amount of my gaming hours as been Square Enix’s beautiful celebration of Gibson’s prose, Deus Ex – Human Revolution. As a teenage roleplay junkie, who grew up spending my evenings mesmerised reading Cyberpunk source books &…

X-Butt 360

08/10/2011

I’ve been a little lapse adding posts lately, working down country (PSP time) & gratuitous gaming have kept me away. When I set up this blog, I also built a few twitter feeds, to keep me up to date with what’s happening in the geek World. Each of these then filters into #GamerGeekNews. So while setting up #XboxGeekNews, I searched Google for an image to use as an avatar… key…

Just started playing through the 3rd gen version of Castlevania on the PS3 As a Sega console owner, never Nintendo; I missed out on the first launch. I always assumed it was a platform style puzzle & was never interested. Will have to check out an out ninty rom I picked up the PS3 version a couple of weekends ago, solely because of the big beasts portrayed on the back…

I read this the other day & I’m shocked… well more disappointed. Google are apparently going to close accounts where users don’t use their real names. I don’t know how they can determine what name is real or not; until I closed my Facebook account I was known as Xain Zedong Jnr III 🙂 Google claim this is so “freinds & family” can find us. If I wanted to speak…

killer star pattern

07/16/2011

I’m really enjoying Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II The graphics are fantastic, better than FFXIII for the FMV sections. Then why oh why do the stars have to be wallpapered on in repeated sections? An easter egg back to the original film? I’m easily distracted now in each space scene, & it’s Star Wars, there are several :), looking for the pattern & missing out on the great graphics…

When something is presented to me which would make my gaming more comfortable, enjoyable & competitive, I’ll certainly look at the merits. So todays 2nd package had me quite excited… enough to bail on the gym & boot up my Xbox, to try out my new Avenger. This cool adapter clips onto a standard xbox 360 controller & allows you to press the face buttons (XYB), using you index fingers,…
