2012 = UGH

Ugh. 2012 now. And why is hitting a Gamerscore target so important? If only I knew then what I know now. Other highlights include the stopping smoking saga involving Champix, and the time I inadvertently thanked the universe for having everything I needed. How little did I know back then. …

Bejeweled Live

OK, so I finally unlocked the last Achievement (that I felt I could realistically achieve) in Bejewelled Live for the Windows Phone today. Thanks to the wonderful website TrueAchievements.com, it appears it took me just under a year to unlock it by smashing one million jewels. I bought the game …

Friday update 7/2/14

I wrote 6/4/13 all over things yesterday, for some reason I thought that was the date. So, what’s been happening? On the community site I wrote about ilomilo, which was great, and made a video with Lewis where we played X-Men Arcade on the 360 – the video is up …

Google + YouTube

The problem I have with Google and YouTube is not that they were once separate entities, but that they have come together and become very confusing. Creating a page for me on Google+ without asking was just the start. For months it was convincing me to use my real name …

Batman: Arkham Origins

This was originally posted on the now-defunct Random Fury! videogame blog. Caution, there are spoilers ahead. It’s rare for me to devote time to a videogame near it’s actual release date. Halo is about the only game I play as soon as it appears in my hands – most other …

2013 videogame targets update and 2014 videogame targets

I made three posts in January of 2013 outlining some targets I had for the coming year, and all of them started well, but fizzled out towards the end. I reckon that if I acknowledge my mistakes, I can learn from them. I’m tackling the videogame targets in this post …

Goodbye 2013

So what happened in 2013 then? It was another mixed bag. The best thing ever happened: I stopped smoking. And I don’t even miss it. I’m not suffering from some black depression because I’m holding myself back from smoking my precious cigarettes, I’m not deluding myself by switching to an …

Sonic Virtually Fighting with Vipers

So, fancying a bit of retro fighting action, I downloaded Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers and Sonic The Fighters via the Xbox Live Arcade today. Virtua Fighter 2 was very stiff – the guard button felt very unresponsive, and I felt like there was no real way to counter Lion’s …

Facebook update #2

So, it’s been a week, roughly, and I’m up to 175. Three quarters of my stupid random personal challenge completed. Other than that, I’ve not really been up to much. The Batman canvas is pretty much finished – keeping to my personal target of creating one “finished” piece of art …
