Wii U time!

Posted by LordZod in The Dirt Sheet, 28 May 2014 · 104 views

It's been a while...
 
But hey, I'm picking up a Wii U on Saturday, so it seems like a decent time to add an entry here.
 
Why did I hold out on the Wii U for so long? Good question. All I know is Mario Kart 8 was the tipping point, and I plan on getting stuck into some of the great titles I've missed out on.
 
Not entirely sure how I'm get...

Wally; D&D 8 fluff

Posted by Obscurus in I want to create, 11 November 2013 · 511 views

I did the filler between sessions last week, and I wrote it loosely in first person. It didn't take super long, and it isnt very good, or edited, but they seemed to appreciate it (thank god, hah). So here it is.

Thank Kord we were away from the Silver Unicorn. Against my better judgement, I lied to the guard of Theradorn. I can only hope...

A Month in the Steam Market: Week 4

Week 4: The Finale.
The week began with important learnings: I read on reddit that Steam’s midweek deals were ending early, indicating that Steam’s Summer Sale would begin on the 11th (in the US).  I also learned that crafting a badge would get me one of the elusive, constantly evolving Mystery Cards!

The Good: Music



The soundtrack is gorgeous. This is one of the games where I'll be playing and then realise just how great the music is. I really hope Nintendo comes out with an orchestrated OST one day (not...

Vooks Update + Call For More Contributors

Situation Report

We’ve been struggling here at Vooks for the past couple of months, the server we’re on just can’t hold the capacity of people who come to the site on a daily basis and it’s been a daily fight to work with the site. We’ve had to reduce the limits on the server so only a small number of people can come on...

The Explorer

Posted by ENKC in It Comes from Hell, 03 January 2013 · 505 views

This is what happens when Ian goes on holiday. Last night, a story came to me and developed in the early hours of the morning whilst my brain was hyped up on too much caffeine. On waking, I decided to write it down. Perhaps it seems a little heavy-handed in the light of day, but so be it. This is what a few hours of...

In which I talk about Dark Souls

Posted by Takora in Takora's Blog, 18 August 2012 · 1,100 views
Dark Souls, PS3

After a few months of on again off again playing, I have finally knocked Dark Souls off my backlog of games. You may know it for the reputation it has gained as one of the hardest games of this console generation, with countless tales of people giving up due to the sheer difficulty. I've gone through the whole gamut of emotions when it comes to this...

Keeping your horror "slender" makes it better.

Posted by James in Supplantation, 04 August 2012 · 1,776 views

No spoilers included here, but marked just in case.

Horror is a genre that I love.

Everyone who knows me well enough (heck some who don't) all know that I absolutely ADORE the horror genre. Some nay sayers, conservatives etc. think that people who enjoy horror must be "sick" or "twisted" in order to want to endure such...

Things I learned from Secret of the Magic Crystal

Posted by Ninja Catfish in Junk I Write, 15 July 2012 · 1,293 views

A friend at work bought me Secret of the Magic Crystal as a joke. (A JOKE!)
I decided, ha, the joke's on you, I'm going to PLAY and ENJOY this game!

So I gave it a try, and learned a few things.

What might the GBA Ambassador games mean?

Posted by Phantom Ganon in Just Another Blog, 03 June 2012 · 803 views

Time to dust off the ol' blog. Last time I posted an entry I was going to do my own theory on the Zelda timeline. But I never got into the idea after that. Plus Nintendo went and released the official timeline, which is confusing (not so much the timeline released but the fact that they actually released it). Actually scratch that last bit, both the...

Money Rich, Time Poor: The Case of the Backlog

Posted by Darth Robbo in Ebb & Flow, 28 March 2012 · 1,456 views

More and more lately, I find myself (and others around me) with little time to indulge in the things I buy for myself. Material goods, as it were. I spend hundreds of dollars a month on things like video games, hardware, books and other little things, but barely get around to using them.

Now don't take this for a whinge post. I'm not posting this...

extended response to 'the wall'

Posted by indevelopment in click jump shoot and tap, 11 March 2012 · 755 views
music, album club

Posting here so I don't derail the thread with a long rambly post, just wanted to get more out of the system about this album. Because as an investment in time, this is something that keeps on giving.

Spoiler warning though, if you don't want to be exposed to my particular take on the wall, stop reading. Like a great work of literature, or film,...

Nintendo Fanboy

Posted by NinjaDead in NinjaDead's Blog, 07 December 2011 · 1,065 views

Am I the only one that gets offended and annoying by being called a Fanboy? For some reason, it seems only Nintendo fans and gamers get called fanboys, or people who think a Nintendo game deserves a higher score. Aussie Nintendo reviewed Mario Kart 7, and gave it 8/10. This seemed a bit low to me, I personally was thinking 9/10, at the least 8.5 because I...

Hey hey hey, first album club album. I've decided I'm going to do my reviews based on a first listen, and maybe do a restrospective if I continue listening to the album or whatever - just so every album gets a fair go, as there'll be some I'll most likely never listen to again. But yeah, this here I shall use for my lengthy rambling as...

Radar Mission on the 3DS Virtual Console is a throwback to an earlier time when portable gaming was quick, simple and most of all, fun. It was one of the earliest games released by Nintendo on the original Game Boy and the simple nature suited the...
