Have You Played?… Skyrim

Gaming Monday HeaderIf you haven’t been on the Internet for a few years, or maybe you took an arrow to the knee, you may have missed all the fuss about Skyrim.

Skyrim is part of the Elder Scrolls series and is set in the same universe as Oblivion and Morrowind, only this time we’re in the land of Skyrim, home of the Nords and now currently, Dragons.
You play as the Dragonborn or “Dovakhin” regardless of race or gender you can “shout” words of power like the Dragons or “Dovah”. You are pretty much Jesus but if you kill a chicken you will get arrested and thrown in jail. Continue reading

5 iPhone Games Not To Download If You Ever Want To Get Things Done Again

I’m not a gamer. I never had an N64 or a GameBoy or anything like that when I was a kid. I just wasn’t interested in that type of entertainment. I was too interested in making things (mainly a mess) cutting, sticking, gluing etc or reading fashion magazines thinking I was ultra cool. So whilst I was otherwise pre-occupied, it seems that other people were playing games. Maybe not having brothers and sisters (and good hand-eye co-ordination) gaming really passed my by. Until I got an iPhone. Now I’m not a up-to-date with all the latest downloads or anything, I’m not even sure whats cool or not but I know what I like. I don’t think any hardcore gamer would think much of my following choices but they certainly float my boat and tick all the boxes for things I would want in a game. So, please don’t judge me on my choices!

GTA V Budget Alternatives

Gaming Monday Header

The new Grand Theft Auto is out this week! Many of you have pre-ordered and many of you will be rocking up to the midnight launch. Most of you will be adults and some of you will be 15 year old who have either tricked their Mam into buying it or have formed a pact with their Dad so your Mam never finds out.

Now the rest of you may be excited by this release but are skint. They’ve timed the launch well for the student market as the first loans of the academic year are in, but if like me your loan went on rent and food you may be looking for some mindless violence at a bargain price. So here we go, here’s Molly’s list of ultra violence for you little droogs. Continue reading

Animal crossing; it’s not you, it’s me

Gaming Monday HeaderSo for avid readers of this blog, you may remember my first post about animal crossing addiction. This is the other end of the spectrum unfortunately.

Ever since I played Wide World, I’ve loved Animal Crossing and New Leaf was no different. For a few weeks I got immersed and I fell in love with the game. But then I started devoting less and less time to the game’s upkeep. I lasted a lot longer with new leaf because of all the new features but eventually I grew tired. Continue reading

Gaming: Haunting Ground Review

Haunting ground pic

Genre and release?

It’s a clear cut, no-doubts-about-it survival horror. This is more or less the ideals of gameplay for me. It’s got all the boxes ticked: Frightened and alone (large breasted) woman; check, Creepy monsters and creepier old men; check, Large castle/manor to explore; check, gore and clever death scenes; Check, Puzzely bits; Check, difficulty in gameplay/an actual struggle to survive; check and of course little to no combat ability; check.

It was released in 2005 by Capcom for the PS2, no issues (that I know of) with this release. Continue reading
