365 Days of Gaming - Day 15: Test Drive Unlimited 2

815d ago ... Test Drive Unlimited 2 is a game of many things, including ridiculous flaws that would make one understand why so many were turned away from this game. I won't focus on the flaws though, because even though they're enough to turn off more hardcore, edgy gamers, the game is overall enjoyable. There isn't much of a story to the game; just a bunch of rich kids competing in a racing event called So...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 14: Flower

816d ago ... Flower is a video game that offers a wonderful change of pace from the common and favoured genres of gaming. From an independent company by the game of Thatgamecompany, Flower is intended to arouse positive emotions in the player, through simple and peaceful gameplay, beautiful and light instrumental music, stunning visuals, and a feeling of accomplishment every time you complete your goals....

365 Days of Gaming - Day 13: NFS Most Wanted

816d ago ... I was pretty skeptical about this title until I watched my friend play it and decided it was not only worth playing, but worth writing about. I find that Need for Speed honours the illegal street racing theme much better than Midnight Club does - mainly because of the simple fact that gameplay is better, in my opinion anyway. I like the customization in Most Wanted but the driving mechanics cou...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 12: GTA San Andreas

821d ago ... When I first heard that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was going on sale for Xbox Live Gold members for 800 MS Points, I nearly fell down due to the excitement. After my account was restored to former glory and my Microsoft points returned, I purchased it right away and after a quick 10 minute download, I started to go through an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia. Despite the ghetto-gangster...

365 Days of Gaming - Hacked

821d ago ... On 12 January 2012, my account on Xbox Live was hacked like many others in order for the hacker to use my Microsoft points to purchase content for FIFA '12 for him/herself. I had about 2200 points stolen, so my balance was wiped clean. I had called Microsoft to report this and they started an investigation. Today, I got an email telling me the investigation was complete and that they provided c...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 11: Battlefield 3

823d ago ... I digress; Battlefield 3 is an amazing game. Despite previous opinions, now that I've finally gotten the hang of it, found a map I enjoy and a weapon that suits me, I find that I enjoy the game so much more. I discovered that with a PP-2000 with a silencer, ACOG, and laser sight or tactical light (assault kit) on Kharg Island is where I shine. Getting at least 10 kills and no more than 5 deaths...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 10: Midnight Club: Los Angeles

824d ago ... I've been a fan of the Midnight Club video games since the second instalment of the franchise, so it's no surprise that I went straight for Midnight Club: Los Angeles when it was released. I however quickly grew annoyed with it when I realized how San Andreas-esque it was in terms of the characters and their ghetto, gangster personalities. Four years after Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Roc...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 9: Skate

824d ago ... I decided to give this game a try; I remember playing the demo awhile back and for under $10 at GameStop, I couldn't go wrong. I spent the first few minutes going through the rather helpful tutorial to understand the basics of how skateboarding works in the game. Being a fan of Tony Hawk's games and only really going to American Wasteland when I'm in a skateboarding mood, Skate was a big change...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 8: Skyrim

826d ago ... Leaving the battlefield for a few moments, I decided to go back into the province of Skyrim and meet up with my wood elf, Volpe. It's been awhile since I actually sat down and explored in the game - I spent most of the time doing side jobs for Delvin at the Thieves Guild; it's a shame some of the miscellaneous assassinations aren't available during the main quest in the Dark Brotherhood like th...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 7: Battlefield 3

826d ago ... I thought this would be a different change of pace than the previous blog entries: Battlefield 3. Let me first start out by saying in order to play this game properly, you're going to need a glass of hard liquour and/or a cigarette, a clear head (which mildly contradicts the liquour recommendation), lots of patience, and time to kill. I spent a good twelve hours of gameplay before I finally got...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 6: Skyrim

829d ago ... Right, well this is what happened. I decided to have a go at the Repairing the White Phial quest given by Quintus Navale of Windhelm with my wood elf, Volpe. I was knee deep in the playthrough with a house in Windhelm and Whiterun, smithing maxed out and a chest full of fancy weapons including daedric, rare enchanted weapons, and I was a good 30 levels into the game. That's when Skyrim f-ed me...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 5: Skyrim

833d ago ... I found myself wandering through the wilderness for most of the time, aside from helping one Quintus Navale in Windhelm and his mentor Nurelion locate the White Phial, the item by which their apothecary store is named. I stumbled upon a witches' den and after killing and looting all whom attacked, I headed to Riverwood to grab the Blades sword from Delphine's hideout before I forgot. It's be...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 4: GoldenEye Reloaded

835d ago ... Right, well setting aside Skyrim for a moment, I wanted to touch on another game that took up a good amount of my time. Recently, Activision released a reimagining of the classic video game, GoldenEye, on the Nintendo Wii. I remember picking it up a few days after grabbing a black Wii that was on sale and I couldn't wait to play it. I understood that it was a reimagining and not a remake - some...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 3: Skyrim

836d ago ... It's been a long and winding road since my initial go of Skyrim back in November 2011. I have been nothing but impressed, pleased, satisfied, and all those good terms with the game. There's been the occasional bug here and there, but nothing too serious that either rendered quests impossible to complete (like those horror stories I've read about) or take away from gameplay. What's really been c...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 2: Skyrim

836d ago ... I have to admit my disappointment in my lack of restraint. I told myself that I would garner 100% completion (or close to it) of Skyrim before I started up a second playthrough. However, I couldn't help but treat myself to experiencing the game from the start earlier than planned. This time around, I decided on a male Wood Elf by the name of Volpe Lachance, a nod toward Lucien Lahance of Oblivi...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 1: Skyrim

836d ago ... It was 11 November 2011 - 11.11.11 as I found it most interesting. I was in line at GameStop having a cigarette and a conversation with a fellow gamer about what we expect from the next instalment in the Elder Scrolls lineage. We had a good chat and no sooner did we finish, it was our turn to get in the store and pick up our copies of the game at the midnight release. I didn't waste a moment af...

365 Days of Gaming - Introduction

836d ago ... I've been a gamer for about twelve years now and I was never one to really sit down and reflect on my experiences. Well, courtesy of N4G, I've been influenced by the community to appreciate gaming for what it is; I've come to realize it's not just a thing to do, a hobby if you will, but a lifestyle. I can't begin to count how many games I've played, albeit it on the Nintendo 64, Playstation, Xb...
