Hello, I am a Gamer

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I have been “gaming” in one form or another since childhood. Somewhere around my 8th birthday, my dad took my brothers and I to his place and let us play his new Pong system. It was the most amazing thing we’d ever seen. Then came our ColecoVision, which introduced us to Donkey Kong played over the TV. Then the multiple Atari 400 systems we received from Santa guaranteed my life-long obsession. Allowing me to lose myself to alternate realities of countless digital games.

Fast forward to 2013. Yes, I am still at it, much to the chagrin of my wife. After so many years and hours of glorious playtime, I have decided to profess my addiction with vehicle graffiti.

I have a few favorite games of all time. Of them all, I confess the Half-Life and Portal series by Valve have together successfully consumed well over a hundred hours of my life.

I now have my Half-life and Aperture Science logo stickers proudly displayed on my old-but-still-running 1995 Pathfinder XL.

That is all.

Tomb Raider Reborn

Last month I pre-ordered Tomb Raider on Steam, and I was able to play it the instant it officially launched Monday night. I had originally only planned on playing an hour or so to get a feel for the game-play and story-line…I played for 6 hours. Having played most of the original Tomb Raiders multiple times, I can testify that every aspect of this game is outstanding. I am looking forward to many more hours finishing the campaign and completing all the tombs and side-stories.

Battlefield 3

I was given a copy of the original, Battlefield 1942, years ago for my birthday by a friend of mine. This latest installment has me giddy as a schoolboy.

Coming To a PC Near You, Crysis 2

I have to confess, I have not had the chance to even play the first installation of this game, but from what this trailer gives away, the sequel is going to be as equally kick butt as the first.

Be sure to hit the ‘full screen’ option. You won’t be disappointed.

One can only wonder how many commercials can be based on WoW. I have not yet been sucked into the awe that is WoW, but this is quite good.

Might as well talk about UT3

Today was a stress-free, work-free day. What does that mean? I relax, I attend a couple of church meetings, and I research all the technology (games mostly) I’ve missed out on over the past year or so. Not that BioShock was not worthy of posting on, but the fact Unreal Tournament III is on the verge of release has me giddy, yet again, for the game I can assure you has taken more hours of my life than any of the others in my digital amusement arsenal.

However, having said that, it’s 12:30am on Monday morning (Sunday night) and I REALLY need to get up early and workout. So, in lieu of my limited time, I leave you all with a screen-shot and link to the Unreal Tournament III web site.

Enjoy.

Startcraft II

Yes, after oh almost ten (10) years (1998), Starcraft II has been officially announced. No release date as of yet, however, there are some seriously wicked game play and introduction videos out on the site. Almost exciting as Transformers the movie.
