Kalula Airlines: Rather awesome livery

I was sent this by my mother and thought it was rather amusing:

Blinded Colony: New Release

I’m not sure what kind of music your into, but Blinded Colony is one of my favourite bands at the moment. They recently released an MP3 of their newest, preview song, called “Out Of Line”. Its a lot cleaner than their usual work, vocals wise, there is much less “ROAAAAAAAR!” and more actual singing, giving a rather nice sound.

Available Here!

Really loving it. I was going though their videos on their facebook page (:cough:) and was inspired to once again try and play the guitar.. it ended very badly with my realising I need professional lessons rather than looking at tabs and going “Uhh, wait… what?” Anyways! Loving the new sound from Blinded Colony, cant wait for the CD release!

On CD release related topic, Sonic Syndicate’s new album “We Rule The Night” is due to be released on the 1st. Bring on my Pre-Order!

Thought I’d go though my Steam games and give mini reviews to them…

clip_image001

688(I) Hunter/Killer

0.3 hrs on record

Was basically a more limited version of Dangerous Waters… Just the one submarine and worse graphics…

Rating: 3/10

clip_image002

All Points Bulletin

6.8 hrs on record

I was pissed off with this game… I spent the above time.. 6.8 hours downloading it.. and it just lagged like an absolute mother bitch… was unplayable.. annoyed..

Raing: 0/10… I couldnt even walk forwards..

clip_image003

America's Army 3

0.1 hrs on record

Another game that really pissed me off…I couldnt even complete the basic training mission where you have to run the course in a certain time… I guess its a fair estimation of how I’d do in actual basic selection…

Rating 0/10

clip_image004

ARMA 2

6.3 hrs on record

I was hoping for a lot from ArmA 2. I loved some parts of ArmA 1 and in those respects 2 didnt disapoint, there are loads of weapons, vehicles, etc, and the mission editor is nearly identical which are all pluses.. but the same old stupid interface and awkward aiming and shooting…I mostly played it for making a mission with 1 tank and one harrier, then bombing the tank.. hours of fun.

Rating: 3/10 …. Stupid GUI..

clip_image005

ARMA: Combat Operations

13.4 hrs on record

This is the STEAM version only.. I think it would be up there in the 100h range if it recorded my old version. Despite its clunky interface and stupid aiming, I loved this game. Especially the Sahrani Life RPG element Open-mouthed smile 

Rating 7/10 Although I loved it, the interface was really dumb.

clip_image006

Armored Fist 3

I’ve yet to try this.. I got it with the Novalogic pack..

clip_image007

Audiosurf

1 hrs on record

An interesting concept… Fun to play when your bored… But hardly ground breaking in terms of story telling… well, there isnt a story.. thats not the point of this game! Its something to dip into when you feel like listning to some music and doing something at the same time (that doesnt include working..)

6/10

clip_image008

Battlefield 2

2.6 hrs on record

Meh… BF1942 was amazing, loved the COOP element. BF2 disappointed on that front. The AI behaved like the dicks you find online, jumping up and down…. SOLDIERS DONT JUMP UP AND DOWN IN REAL BATTLE! You dont dodge incoming fire by hopping up and down… You get into cover and give return fire..

4/10

clip_image009

BioShock

Ah, I played it for that short a time it didnt even record. Stupid game…. if there were mods I would consider playing it… Pack a G36 and I’d jump straight in.

2/10

clip_image010

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

4.7 hrs on record

Grrr…….. Yea… £40 for 5h of game play.. I was very pissed off… But its Call of Duty… its for the multiplayer… Which I detest… Not worth it..

2/10

clip_image011

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Multiplayer

0.1 hrs on record

..Meh, better on the Xbox, but hardly ground breaking..

1/10

clip_image012

Comanche 4

Got with Novalogic pack.. never played… Looks graphically challenged..

clip_image013

Counter-Strike: Source

0.1 hrs on record

If you want to be shot in the face repeatedly by a 8 year old…. play this game! Idiotic game… But Gmod needed it..

0/10

clip_image014

Counter-Strike: Source Beta

clip_image015

Crash Time II

0.2 hrs on record

It looked quite good fun… But I suck at driving…

1/10

clip_image016

Dangerous Waters

148.5 hrs on record

..I think this is the game I’ve played on longest… Great fun, nothing beats sitting in a darkened room with headphones pressed tightly to one ear whilst listening to a BQQ-5. Had just read Red Storm Rising, so was totally into all the OHP class frigates, and 688s.

Rating 9/10

clip_image017

Darkest Hour: Europe '44-'45

1.6 hrs on record

Played it online for a bit, but the graphics were rubbish… Game play was okay I guess… but not something I’ll play again..

2/10

clip_image018

Day of Defeat: Source

0.3 hrs on record

Damn the guns have some serious recoil! But yea, meh.. got because Gmod wanted the files..

1/10

clip_image019

Delta Force

clip_image020

Delta Force 2

clip_image021

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down

Although it doesnt say it here, I’ve completed BHD a few times. Awesome game. Looks a bit like an old version of Joint Operations.. which I suppose it is… Brilliant storyline Love it. But no Coop! And the multiplayer sucked….

Rating 8/10

clip_image022

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down - Team Sabre

Similar in game play to BHD, but without the familiar storyline. Good, but the original was better. Some good missions though, dont get me wrong.

7/10

clip_image023

Delta Force: Land Warrior

clip_image024

Delta Force: Task Force Dagger

clip_image025

Delta Force: Xtreme

Started playing it.. but its just a cheap version of Joint Operations.. Meh.

4/10

clip_image026

Delta Force: Xtreme 2

4.5 hrs on record

Completed it in 4.5h… There is a full review here: No! here!

Better graphics than BHD, but rubbish weapons.. Missed the whole ranging in from Joint Operations

6/10

clip_image027

DiRT 2

1.6 hrs on record

I suck at driving, so sucked at this..

2/10

F-16 Multirole Fighter

F-22 Lightning 3

Fallout 3

22.1 hrs on record

The first version I got! Thought it was pretty good.. but nothing special..

6/10

clip_image030[1]

Fallout 3 - Game of the Year Edition

64.4 hrs on record

The 2nd time I got it i really got into it. This was the GOTY version, so all the addons. And I loved it! awesome game! Got all the achievements!

8.5/10

clip_image031

Far Cry 2

19.9 hrs on record

I got quite far though this, but my PC crashed and I lost the save game. It wasnt untill recently (August 2010) that i actually completed it on the Xbox. Was a good game with regards to Storyline. And I looooved the scenery. Its set in Africa, which is a country close to my heart, really beautiful scenes in the grasslands. Really nice. But some gameplay aspects sucked.. No Coop for one.. Whats the point in a jeep you can drive, but have to switch seats to gun if you cant have someone else on the gun? meh..

8/10 anyway… was a good game

clip_image032

Far Cry 2: Fortunes Pack

clip_image033

Fleet Command

clip_image034

Frontlines: Fuel of War

5.1 hrs on record

I got this for like 2 quid.. BARGAIN! Loved the game too. The storyline was really good and thought provoking. I just got it for the Xbox too, but not been able to play it much yet.

clip_image035

Garry's Mod

158.8 hrs on record

158h says it all. I freaking love this game. Game? …Sandbox. Its amazing fun. I spent about 50 hours just building assorted space ships and flying them around the gooniverse map. Amazing fun! Class game! I can actually find no flaws.. Apart from perhaps when you’ve built everything there isnt much left to do…

9.5/10 … because I cant give 10/10 to any game….

clip_image036

Grand Theft Auto IV

16.3 hrs on record

I turned Nikko Belic away from a life of crime… but the game lost whatever storyline it had when I did… Plus the storyline sort of ended when I refused to date some random girl I didnt know. Thats not how I roll.

Meh/10… thats not a number.. eer 6/10.

clip_image037

Half-Life 2

13.4 hrs on record

Played mostly over Synergy mod. Excelent game.

8/10

clip_image038

Half-Life 2: Deathmatch

Joint Operations: Escalation

14.9 hrs on record

GOTTA LOVE JOINT OPS! Though with the new edition none of the stats recorders work.. and I cant install mods on the STEAM version of Jops…. But yea, its an amazing game! LOVE IT!

9/10

clip_image043

Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising

clip_image044

Killing Floor

63.5 hrs on record

Nothing like extreme gore and violence when your in a bad mood. So grab your M9 and blow some zombies heads off. Great fun! And I’ll definitely be playing more of this as soon as I get new internet, instead of this inter-нет that I currently have…нет is russian for No. Its pronounced “Niet” ..Inter Niet…. Oh nvm…

9/10

clip_image045

Killing Floor Mod: Defence Alliance 2

1.2 hrs on record

The shite cousin of Killing Floor.

2/10

clip_image046

Left 4 Dead

I did like this to start with, but once you’ve completed it once or twice its just so repetative. Shite replay value.

3/10 ..Just because I’m feeling generous.

clip_image047

Left 4 Dead 2

2.9 hrs on record

Its a once though game… Although its meant to be “great replay value” … Once you know the story the only difference will be where the zombies are…. meh

3/10

clip_image048

Mare Nostrum

0.4 hrs on record

Junk graphics, clunky gameplay..

2/10

clip_image049

MiG-29 Fulcrum

clip_image050

Portal

PORTAL! Amazing game! Its class! You’ve got to play it!

9.5/10

clip_image051

Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45

clip_image052

Rhythm Zone

0.2 hrs on record

I got this thinking it would be like a custom Guitar Hero. But was disapointed to find there was no strumming… Meant I sucked at it since I’m used to holding down the note, then strumming when it passes. But its okay when you get used to it. But unlikely to play again.

3/10

clip_image053

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat

73.8 hrs on record

OMG. STALKER! 3rd in the series. The 2nd best I’d say. Full review here: TADA!

Really love the STALKER series. My favorite game series of all time. Love it sums it up.

9/10 A-MAZING!

clip_image054

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky

4.8 hrs on record

:Cough: This game was a mistake. lets be honest. Its the worst of the STALKER series. I think they just rushed it though developement…. I’m playing it again with the STALKER Complete mod by ArtistPavel (Available here) so we shall see… maybe its better with that mod..

One memorable moment only really from that game, the battle for the bridge at Limansk, and the battles though Limansk itself, they were the best thing about this game. Its worth getting if you’ve completed Shadow of Chernobyl, just for the storyline, dont play Call of Pripyat without playing this first.

6/10… yea.. it sucked.

clip_image055

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl

69.7 hrs on record

MY FAVORITE GAME OF ALL TIME! Love it love it love it! A short review doesnt do it justice. This game is like an old jumper, you really love it, its got so many good memories, but its also really uncool and you would never be seen in public with it as its not as cool as all your MW2s and Battlefields. GSC a its finest.

9.8/10. Just because it doesnt have COOP, and the artefacts are too easy to find… Otherwise it’d be a 10/10 for sure! 11/10!

clip_image056

Stargate Resistance

0.5 hrs on record

I was tricked… I thought this was the Stargate Worlds under a new name… But it turned out to be CounterStrike in the SGC, with Zat guns and P90s… meh.

2/10

Sub Command

clip_image058

Synergy

40.8 hrs on record

I’ve completed Halflife 2 on Synergy….3 times I think.. and am on my 4th play though with Wendy. Its a Coop mod for Half life 2, so instead of going though the campaign on your own, you’ve got someone backing you up. Tis a great mod

9/10

Tachyon: The Fringe

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon

0.1 hrs on record

I’m wishing I’d played this a long time ago, when I was playing Rainbow Six.. The controls are the same, but I now find them really hard to use after all the newer games… Was gutted as I loved these old Tom Clancy games..

6/10

s’ difficult! Even on easy! I gave up…

X3: Reunion

81.3 hrs on record

Haha oh I love this game! There are some awesome mods for it too, the Stargate mod is my favorite. Flying around in a BC-304 Daedalus class ship is amazing fun, especially when you have a fleet of F-302s onboard. CLAAAAS! But never completed it… The tangos just get too difficult later on.. I’d take a few hits and just blow up… annoying…

7/10

clip_image070

X3: Terran Conflict

0.3 hrs on record

Figured I shouldnt play this till I’d completed Reunion… so cant really comment..
