Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.


Just saw Avatar (in 3D no less)
December 21, 2009

First off, I really liked the film. But my enjoyment comes with some baggage.

For one thing, it's sad that such a high concept has to be given such a Hollywood treatment. There are so many places to go with the concept of putting ourselves into alien bodies and experiencing alien cultures first hand and the film has this sense like it wanted to let the audience know it was aware of those things so it touches on them briefly before charging ahead with the usual "humans versus aliens" science fiction battle plot.

Next purchase? Need advice.
December 13, 2009

I'm looking to pick up one of the following this month:

Assassin's Creed 2
Dragon Age
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

All three have received high reviews, both here and from my friends. There are a few things I was trying to clear up about each game, though...

Assassin's Creed 2: has the story improved since the original? What about those ungodly twenty minute "cutscenes" before each mission? I hear a lot about missions being better, but are they more varied? I'm not looking for Grand Theft Auto: Rennaisance. I want something a little more visceral and a little more immersive than that.

Call of Duty 4: beating the Chernobyl mission on Hardened and Veteran
December 12, 2009

Everyone has trouble with this one, but I finally figured out a sure-fire way to beat it. Obviously, for those who have played the game, the part I am referring to is the bit where you have to wait for a chopper to land at the Ferris Wheel while being rushed by an inordinate amount of troops.

The first part of this is laying the traps. Believe it or not, this is less crucial than you might think, at least with this strategy. The claymores can be placed wherever, but it's best to spread them out so they don't activate each other. A generally good strategy is to place them in the large field where the soldiers first enter, or by the vehicles to give an extra explosion when they go.

Game that looks most improved on HDTV?
December 08, 2009

Believe it or not, it's Mirror's Edge. I mean, all my games and even my screensavers look better, but Mirror's Edge shows the most noticeable improvement thus far.

I'm back... and better equipped
December 08, 2009

I announce my return to Honest Gamer's group of talented writers, today. I also come with my first HDTV, a very fine Vizio 32''. My love triangle is complete.

Goddamit, even the PS3 update bar looks better than all of my games did on SD.

You shall be hearing from me shortly.
