Rapid Fire: Dragon Age Expansion, Half Life 2, and Spider Man 4

Dragon Age: Origins will be getting an expansion in March. It pleases me to hear this even though I think it’s a little soon. I am on my second play through of the game and I don’t feel any where near being done with all the content available. This expansion is akin to offering me desert while I’m sleeping on the couch after eating 3 plates of turkey on thanksgiving. It looks good, and I will eat it, but I wouldn’t mind some time to digest.

I finished playing Half-Life 2: Episode 2 the other day. I’m slowly making progress on my pile of shame. The last level was brilliant. It was short and you didn’t expect it to end. I was ready to jump on that helicopter and do some butt-kicking.  The ending scene where Alyx’s dad dies is one of the most heart wrenching scenes in a game. It would make me cry if I wasn’t a callused jerk.

Spider man 4 got canned because Sam Raimi didn’t feel he could hit the dead line Sony Pictures wanted and still make a good movie. Sony wants to reboot the franchise in 2012 with a new set of actors.

Keep on gaming people!


I’m back!

Hey all! Just Letting you know things are about to get rolling again. I have gained a decent level of response and hits on the site and I learned a lot about doing this type of work.

Since my last update I have gamed avidly (of course). I finished Dragon Age, and I’ve played Braid, Dawn of Discovery, Risen, Half-Life 2: Episode 2 and various other titles. I bought a wii for my own Christmas gift and have played small doses of the new Super Mario Brothers.

I will leave you fine folks with a list about 2009 just because I’m different from everyone else.

The best things of 2009 we’re:

The series finale of Battlestar Galactica

Dragon Age: Origins



Playing Half-Life 2 in one sitting

Playing Resident Evil 5 in one sitting

Reading the Vampire Lestat

The worst things in 2009 we’re:

Seeing the first 40 minutes of Interview With a Vampire

Assassin’s Creed 2 being delayed for PC

New Moon making too much money

Happy new year people!
