Autumnal Waterfall 2 – Doing nothing in Steelport

I guess I will do the first post now. This is me doing absolutely nothing of value in a sandbox game purely because I can. And that is what’s so great about these kinds of games and why I really like them. This game in particular, is Saint’s Row: The Third. Where over the top dicking around is encouraged.

Note: Warning, picture heavy. Do not try any of the following at home. Also, I do not have anything against the hos. The hos are nice people that should be treated well. Reader advisory in also effect. These screenshots do not represent any of Volition or THQ’s intended gameplay or their stance towards the hos

Autumnal Waterfall 1

So, this is my little category of the blog. Hmm, for introductory purposes, I guess I’ll say what this is about. This will mostly be about the games I am currently playing. There will be a bit of other stuff as well but mostly games. What I want to try is talk about games I am playing for the first time, instead of stuff I’ve already played so it’ll be my first reactions.

What kind of games will I be playing? Well, not FPS’s. I’m okay with aliens trying to breed with my characters face, I am not okay when it’s my face. I play a lot of well, I guess you can count them as Widget stuff. I also prefer RPG’s or adventure games. It will mostly be computer games since I can actually take screenshots of those.

For those of you that recognize the title of the category or the person in the picture,...

Time Wasters of the Utmost Caliber

Sup everyone, by order of our benevolent zombie overlords (no really he beat me until i agreed to post) Here are Shade’s favorite sites to be random on:

1)  Manga Eden: Such a good manga site and now that most of the others have taken down content its my go to stop for all my manga needs. Contains a hell of a lot of series and is updated really quickly. Also they have Italian translations which is awesome.

2) Kongregate: Want a quick flash game to play to waste 5 minutes? Half an hour? The whole day? Kongregate is my go to source for when I need to game without having to get up and boot a console or drum up the energy to hit open on steam.

3) Science Memebase: I am a bio major, and above being an otaku I’m nerdy as hell...

Unbeaten Games: The Untold Saga – Episode III

So yeah, I’m totally not succeeding with my goals of beating these games, nor am I posting for this blog consistently. Nonetheless, I will continue to persist until I get on the right track!

I was trying to limit this list to only my Xbox 360 games; however, the powers that be do not wish for that to be so! *shakes fist* Darn you gaming gods!  With that being the case, I will be adding non-360 games to the list should the urge to play them arise. And it has…

Feeling nostalgic to the old-school gaming days and wanting to return to the memories of my childhood, I picked up my copy of Zelda and started playing it again...

Shaman King Flowers Chapter One Review

Shaman King Flowers

Chapter One – Tsubomi “Bud”

You can tell he is the son of Anna, that scowl could only come from her.

So everything starts at the very place where everything first began back in 1998, the cemetery hill of Nishitokyo. Our young hero Asakura Hana, much like his esteemed, laidback father Yoh, is sitting on a gravestone staring off into the night sky. Unlike Yoh, however, Hana is not there for the view or the company of the deceased that dwell there. No, the poor boy from Shinra Class 2-A is being challenged by thugs from Banshou High, specifically their leader of Class 3-B Ichihara Ryuji, the legendary Ryu no Bokutou…the Second!?!

Unbeaten Games: The Untold Saga – Episode II

Welcome back Everyone!

I am sorry that it has taken me so long to create a second entry in this series. I am in the process of buying a house so it’s been difficult finding the time to play video games (refer to first post in the series to see what I mean about real life stuff popping up). Last night, however, I managed to sit down with Batman: Arkham Asylum again and finally beat the story mode.

Without further ado, let’s jump into it.

Batman: Arkham Asylum delivered on a great gaming experience. I found that as the second half of the game progressed my complaints about the stealth/stalking system were allievated...
