Trackmania United Forever

I was scrounging round in Gamestation and saw a copy for two quid, so I bought it.

I've played around 5 minutes of it, and It's good!

Scout Update

I haven't been gaming at all this week, because of a number of personal reasons, but I finally got to have a goo mess around with the scout update today. I love it, but not for the scouts.

It means I can finally get most of the Heavy achievements (which shows how long it's been since I last played this.. lol). Still, I got the first weapon today, so I'm not doing too bad!

Expect me to blog normally for the next few days!

It makes me Ill to even think about my experience with this...

Theme Park World

Ok so I haven't blogged in.... 3 days. For me that's a long time I know, but I just haven't been playing games much this month due to the sheer amount of work I've been having to do for college. Anyway, I actually managed to play a game yesterday for an hour, and this game was Theme Park World

This game brings back so many memories it's unbelievable. I used to LOVE this game. My Dad upgraded the computer when it first came out so he could play it, I devoted myself to it for about 8 months of my childhood life and I remember quite fondly waking up at 5AM on a school morning so I could play it for a few hours before I went in. Ahhh, to be young and in love with a strategy management sim! 

Ok, so it hasn't aged well. The graphics are terrible, the gameplay mechanics are abysmal and that little bastard who keeps popping up in the right hand corner needs to be shot (My mate was playing this on Friday, and he actually began to cry because of the sheer amount of times he went on about patrol areas. No joke). But there's something so..... Fresh about this game. It's simple enough to get into to, there's plenty of rides and shops to set up and although there's only four parks to mess around in, it has a surprising amount of depth to it...

Actually playing it makes me want to play Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 again... Hmmm.

Rock Band

I played this for the first time yesterday. My Sister borrowed the full band set (excluding the bass) for the Wii, so of course me a few mates decided to have a go.


In short, I didn’t think much of it, which is disappointing really. I found the guitar uncomfortable to use (which could just be due to my obsession with Guitar Hero 3, which has  a different guitar). The best way to describe it would be playing Guitar Hero with marshmallows taped to your fingers..


The drums, I enjoyed. They were fun at first, but after you realise that no matter how quietly you try to play, you will NEVER hear the song and that they never register all the hits, they don’t seem as enjoyable anymore.


The tracklist is terrible, with only about three songs that are worth playing.


Overall, a major disappointment.

Heathen Talk!


You  know what? I’m considering getting an Xbox… Yea I know, I talk of blasphemy but I may as well. Their not that cheap, they don’t break as much anymore and no-one can deny that the online is worth it every time! Also, it’ll be fun to play some online games with a mate of mine.


In other less hypocritical news, I finished Battlefield Bad Company last night! Cracking game. I really enjoyed it, even though I got it in September (The shame!)


Also, I got Crash Commando and the Metal Gear Solid pack for LittleBigPlanet. I’ve yet to play the latter, but the former is well good. Personally, I just can’t wait for the next Penny Arcade episode to come out. I loved that. It was brilliant. I may even go as far to say one of the best games I’ve played in a while :P


Oh, and the reason I haven't been blogging is that over the last few days I’ve been involved in SOCIAL activities! Real social activities!


I know, I’m surprised too..

I have a sudden urge to play this… and I don’t know why. I know that it’ll be terrible, especially compared to the awesomeness that was Future Perfect but… I dunno. I just wanna try it.

Battlefield Bad Company

I love this game online. It's fantastic. I've just started playing it again, and I love it. It's one of those games where you can just sit for a few hours and play. Brilliant stuff!

It's probably just the scale of it. Like most Battlefield games, it's all about tanks, helicopters and a large number of soldier's, and because this is Bad Company, a LOT of explosions.

All Work And No Play Makes Meevil A Crazy Psycho Nugget


I haven't sat down to play a game properly since Sunday. That probably doesn't sound strange, but for me it’s heresy. I’ve had too much work you see, and just haven't had the time to play!


But, starting from tomorrow night, I’m gonna finish the whole of the Red Alert 3 campaign with a lad of the forum.


I can’t wait! :D

Killzone 2

Over the past few days I've been swamped by work from college, so it's been damn near impossible for me to update this thing... :(

So, today I've made sure I have 5 minutes to blog!

I tried the Killzone 2 Demo on Saturday, and to be brief I didn't like it it all. It was awkward to control, and clunky in gameplay. However, if reviews are anything to go by, this looks like a must have so no doubt my opinion will change soon enough (as it always does).

This Little Duck Hates Left 4 Dead

Hey, Terrance here. I’m back.


I would have posted before today, but a week after I last posted I had a bit of an accident. You see, I hate everything, but one thing I do love is bread. I adore the stuff. It’s like duck sex to me. So I was in the park, diving for some bread, when some little shit threw a donut at me. In my frenzied bread rage, I consumed the whole thing in under a second and thusly sunk to the bottom of the pond in a fashion that very much resembled a scene from the Godfather. Anyway, I saved by a passing homeless guy who thought I was a magic pond elf but the moral of this story is I couldn't be bothered… Anyway.


I used to quite enjoy Valves zombie shooter Left 4 Dead. In fact, you could say I actually used to… well. Like it. Anyway, I got bored of the thing fairly quickly due to the lack of campaigns and the god-awful server browser, but I still had a soft spot for the old decaying girl. So you can imagine my excitement when Barry the swan tells me that it’s going to receive free Downloadable content which will consist of two new versus campaigns and an all new “Survival mode”. Well I almost snapped both my wings off as I skidded across the ice to my laptop (It’s cold here in Dorset… I hate snow).


Browsing the internet, my excitement was crushed with the cold hard facts. These two “new” versus campaigns are just Death Toll and Dead Air (which should have been included on the games initial release in my opinion) and this survival mode may just be the same as the main game, just with no medipacks of pills.


Well I can tell you, I'm severely pissed off. Valve are normally fantastic for updates (look at Team Fortress 2) but this is just stupid.


Terrance out.

Just trying out a new client that goes by the name Raptr. It claims to be a cross between Xifre, Xbox Live, Facebook and Jesus. I'll be the judge of the latter.

Join up and see for yourselves, I'm off to try the in-game interface (if it has one)

Online Gaming? Peh!

You know what? Sod online gaming. Nothing can ever beat a two player session on Timesplitters Future Perfect. 5 minutes, Thief and Mexican mission.

Pure, classic fun.

Timesplitters 4

If you haven't already heard, Free Radical are back in business. How you ask? Well it’s actually a one of those stories that restores hope in the industry .None other than Crysis developer Crytek has provided them with financial stability. Crytek! Crytek have saved Timesplitters 4! How amazing is that!


I can’t wait for the next installment in the Timesplitters series. It’s going to epic. I can FEEL it.

Resident Evil 5

After playing the demo for the first time yesterday, I posted this as a topic on nFortress:


Decided to make a new thread, because It was released on the PS3 today. Well the demo was.
Here's my impressions then. I played through the first chapter and hated every second of it. It wasn't Resi 4, and it wasn't the original Resi's and quite frankly I was dissapointed. I sat in quiet hatred, mumbling to myself over every flaw.
Then I played the second bit, and ADORED every second of it. Then I played the first chapter again, and loved that too.
This game is everything I hoped it was going to be. The graphics are superb, the controls are perfect and the enemies are as good as they were on Resi 4. I'm not too keen on the co-op online, but who cares. You don't have to play it.
It's not the "Bastardisation" of the series that everyone was raving about. It's different, and that's never a bad thing. It's just changed that's all, and I wish more people would accept that.
Oh, and bear in mind, this is coming from a hardcore Resident Evil fan.
P.S. if anyone dares say "OMG YOU CAN'T MOVE AND SHOOT" I have one thing to say. GTFO of my game, you never could and you never will.

And would you believe it, everyone basically slated it. Beh.


Anyway, I personally can’t wait for release day!

All Will Be Revealed… In The Credits


Ah Still Alive from the Portal credits. Let’s face it, whether you like it or not, it was genius. I mean, who saw that coming? Honestly. It was immense, and I don’t think I’ve laughed so much because of end credits… well ever.


I never thought I’d be impressed with another credit song, but then I finished Precipice Of Darkness and… Well. I discovered the song below :P


It takes a while to get into, but the lyrics are hilarious.

Red Alert 3

Finally got my hands on a copy of Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 today and I can safely say it’s one of the best RTS’ I've played in a long time. It’s not as good as the legend that is Warcraft 3, but it’s certainly on par with Warhammer: Dawn of War and Company of Heroes.


Consisting of insane gameplay (Soviet Bears?), fantastic cut scenes (Casting Tim Curry as the leader of the USSR is just sheer genius) and a rather disturbing view on the role of women (A free poster that consists of nothing but women in low cut tops was included in the game box) means that Red Alert 3 is everything that I expected.


A must buy, comrades.
