What Overwatch really needs…

I love playing Overwatch, it’s a fun and unique game. I play on console (PS4), but regularly watch twitch PC players, and wish I’d just gotten it for PC… So here’s some of the things it needs on console… You know the callout wheel? I call it the ‘chat without the chat wheel’. What we really need is some new options on that; ‘Thank you, Mei, for blocking our spawn with your ice wall. That really contributed to the team.’ ‘Yes. I can both see and hear that you need healing, but as our 3 (yes, 3) tanks have no … Continue reading What Overwatch really needs…

Sar’s ShOcktober// Zombified Conversations

Day 25. So I’m currently sat in on the XBox360 dashboard, in a party chat with¬†@folicacid¬†aka Ian, and we’re just chatting about the usual – gaming, music, the zombie apocalypse, and ultimate downfall of civilisation as we know it. Typical Thursday night conversation. Now, when I say ‘that game trailer‘, I am of course referring to the Dead Island trailer…yes, that trailer. It’s a truly amazing trailer, that trailer got me excited about gaming again. For so long, I’d been feeling quite ‘oh gaming…yea…whatever.’, then I saw the Dead Island trailer. The whole concept of the trailer, being in reverse, … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Zombified Conversations

Sar’s ShOcktober// Game Gore

Day 17. So yesterday’s ShOcktober was all about Isaac Clarke, and how awesome Dead Space is. And all of his brutal deaths, got me thinking on some of the most brutal video game deaths that I’ve seen, along with the creepiest moments. So yea, today is gonna be a mash-up of all the video game scenes that have freaked me out, or made my inner Jigsaw squeal with bloody delight… F.E.A.R – sadly the video is really dark, but it sort of adds to the tension. The overall death is truly brutal though, and creepy as Hell! This is why … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Game Gore

Sar’s ShOcktober// ‘How I Died’ by Isaac Clarke

Day 16. I’ve written about Dead Space 1&2 before, but they’re such good games, that I’m mentioning them again. Seriously, you need a scary game to play over Halloween? Look no further than the DS series, I actually had to play DS2 with my gaming partner, at the time, while in party…squealing at her, whenever I got scared aka constantly. So yea, both games have some brutal, and often interesting death scenes, for Isaac (I love Mr. Clarke <3) and for randoms…let’s take a look: Yea…not overly brutal, but really rather odd thing to stumble across, while you’re traversing the … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// ‘How I Died’ by Isaac Clarke

Online Loneliness – Revisited

On the 9th of December 2010, I wrote a short blog about how lonely I often get, while I’m online. I said in the post, that I wanted to make more of an effort to be a member of an online community. So, it’s now the 23rd of September 2011, I figured I’d give an update on how that little ‘goal’ has been going… I’m a writer over at http://thegameinvaders.com/, the owner (Amba) has actually became one of my best friends. She actually came to stay with me, for a couple of days. One of the guys who previously wrote … Continue reading Online Loneliness – Revisited

Online Loneliness

It’s been quite some time since I’ve had the time to actually use my laptop, I usually just make do with my iPod – as I’m addicted to twitter! I love using my laptop, so after weeks (even months) of not using it or the Internet (for anything other than tweeting), I was really looking forward to hopping on… 10 minutes later, I was staring at my desktop – wondering what to do. That’s when I came to the realisation that I really don’t do very much online. I’m not a member of any online communities, there are very few … Continue reading Online Loneliness
