The Weekend Gamer (August 8th-10th)

August 8, 2008

The last two weeks have been a stressful time, but I feel that things may now be getting better.  I’ve had more time over the last 48 hours to consider more gaming time, and have spent that time playing several old titles and a new one. I got invited back into my old Halo 3 […]

The Weekend Wrapup (May 9th-11th)

May 12, 2008

For those of you who missed it, Gears of War 2 had it’s first gameplay footage revealed on Friday night.  You can download it directly from live or watch it here.  Pretty decent looking.  I’d say Gears is right in the hype pocket right now.  They don’t really need to do anything to persuade me […]
