Almost a year since the last post. So where has the time gone? Might be the house and renovation projects. Might be the garden. Might be work. Or other constructive tasks such as gaming improving hand-eye coordination :)

Brütal Legend

Awesome, dude. But still slightly flawed. Less RTS and more shredding enemies would have been my preference.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

The Goddamn Batman. ‘Nuff said.


Kicking Demon and Angel butt as War himself. And there are three more horsemen for the obvious sequel.

God Of War III

I’m getting to old for this #%$*, but still finished it without switching to an easier setting (despite the game asking multiple times).

Assassin’s Creed II

After playing War himself and then Kratos, Ezio seems to be a bit of a wuss at first, but still well worth playing. If only scaling buildings and running across rooftops were so easy… and the idiots carrying boxes are only slightly less annoying than the real-life numbskulls at current workplace who suddenly stop in the middle of full hallways and doorways to talk.

Also: Obvious sequel is obvious.

In Progress: Dante’s Inferno

…killed Death. Difficulty… hard. Must… not… switch to easy.

Definitely not for the faint of heart or those requiring nightmare-free sleep, or those requiring full use of their fingers. Note to self: the combination of painting walls, gardening with motorized equipment and excessive controller usage over a long weekend is a pretty good recipe for wreaking havoc on your wrists.

Rotate 90°…

No-one expects the bamboo stick…

Frustration, thy name is Andy…

Latest find on eMusic: Andy McKee.

Despite being tagged as “country” – not usually a genre to be found in my music library – the album “Art of Motion” provided one of those frustrating why do I bother moments. Recently, my focus has been on electric guitar (Ibanez S470 in stylish red FTW!) but in secret, I think I’d rather be an acoustic guitar player…

Solid State Disk? Boring…

Solid state laser FTW… In stock at amazon yet, I wonder?
