Weekend Gamer (November 16-18)

November 16, 2007

  We’re right smack in the middle of the storm people.  Too much to play, and not enough time to play it in.  There’s no excuse for not having a choice of games to play, but that doesn’t mean that something won’t keep you from your digital harvest.  Be vigilant!  It’s the weekend, and weekends are […]

November 5, 2007

  Good morning everyone.  Welcome back!  I hope your weekend was alright.   It’s time for the weekend wrapup, so let’s see how you did.  For me, in actuality I got crunched with work, and so my gaming time was in short spurts.  I did however get a chance to play some Team Fortress with Chris, […]

October 29, 2007

Good morning!  Hope your weekend was relaxing.  Friday’s Halo 3 party started out on a disappointing note, as my other four from a neighboring town backed out, and one of our foursome didn’t show.  However, my cousin from Philly came online, as did a few other friends, and in the end, we had about eight […]

The Weekend Gamer (Oct. 26th-28th)

October 26, 2007

  Well, things are a bit back to normal this weekend for me.  My parents are safely home, and there’s not a lot going on at work for me this Saturday and Sunday.  It’s time to see what we’ll all be playing this weekend. Firstly, I got a chance to play through some of the […]
