Halo 3 the 360 review

Pfft… Even 360’s are gutted with Halo 3: “Halo 3. It wasn’t as cool as I thought it would be…” Amen my little anthropomorphised brother. Amen. Curtsey of

Just so's we're all clear

Timesplitters 2, the single greatest game of all time , and arguably man's greatest acheivement, was the first FPS to do the virus mode well. I know that the sequel to Timesplitters 2, OF WHICH WE HAVE 100% IN ALL THINGS BUT DO NOT SPEAK, messed it up so bad that Bungie had to steal the idea to keep it alive. As long as we all know and we pay props where props is due we can all be friends yes? I don't even want to think about the consequences if I see another "not paying tribute to TS2" post.

The Oblivion 1000 point challenge. Pt 4

Challenge failed: Yeah I kinna gave up after Friday, after spending 2 hours gaining ‘cheevos in Oblivion I decided this was not the proper way to spend a Friday/Weekend night and as such proceeded to party the rest of the weekend away. Also, it was AV bonus honour weekend so what little gaming I did over the weekend was spend grinding honor. Anyway this is my final score for 1 week (just under 10 hours gameplay :S): Apprentice, Fighters Guild (10) Apprentice, Mages Guild (10) Arch-Mage, Mages Guild (50) Assassin, Dark Brotherhood (10) Associate, Fighters Guild (10) Associate, Mages Guild (10) Bandit, Thieves Guild (10) Bloodletter, Arena (10) Brawler, Arena (10) Cat Burglar, Thieves Guild (10) Champion of Cyrodiil (110) Champion, Arena (10) Champion, Fighters Guild (10) Closed an Oblivion Gate (50) Conjurer, Mages Guild (10) Defender, Fighters Guild (10) Delivered Daedric Artifact (50) Destroyed the Great Gate (50) Eliminator, Dark Brotherhood (10) Escape

Pokemon Summer Camp: That was ages ago

Yes in our long running series (2 including this one) of up to the minute live blogging of videogames events posted a month after the fact we are proudish to relay our thoughts on the Pokemon Summer Day Camp way back on the 25th of August. Yes after all my fanboy whinging about how Nintendo hates europe, it seems that they heard my whiny plees and decided to do a Pokemon Summer Day Camp which promised much pokemon related fun and the oppurtunity to get a Mew for the GBA games, which is sure generous Nintendo. How many other games let their players wait 4 years to get something they should have had anyway..... So Chuff_72, our TGAM street correspondant and myself went along in the interests and purity of videogame journalism. Definitely not because neither of us wanted to go alone and one of us, really, really wanted to go. As it turns out we were both movinghouse that weekend but promises and pleading with our better halves meant we busted down to sunny Brent Cross in London for


Alright Kids, It's Friday and for a laugh I have created a Video game related Dingbat... Leave a Comment with the solution... Hint: The answer is not a video games related.

The Oblivion 1000 point challenge. Pt 3

Poor! Very Very Poor! I managed to play for an hour yesterday… 1 hour I managed to slam a load of the Mages guild quests… But I’m still on them. I was hoping by this time to have completed the Mages guild and to have progressed within the Fighters guild (maybe arena). Though it’s not all bad, I have the last remaining Arch-Mage missions left which are not huge challenges, if I can get them done in an hour, and maybe complete the Fighters guild and Arena at the weekend then I will be back on track… maybe. Either way I think we can all see the benefits of NOT having friends when taking on a challenge such as this. The other minor achievement that I got last night, my character is now a Journeyman in Alteration, with Illusion a mere midges baw-hair behind it. Status: Level 7 Apprentice, Fighters Guild (10) Apprentice, Mages Guild (10) Arch-Mage, Mages Guild (50) Assassin, Dark Brotherhood (10) Associate, Fighters Guild (10) Associate, Mages Guild (10) Bandit, Thieves G
