Completed: Journey


I’ve been meaning to play this one for a while, but this is a game that requires a dark, quiet house with minimal distractions. Such a beautiful and relaxing experience! Now I just need to pump in another 200 or so hours to catch up with my sons!

Completed: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

474px-Uncharted_2_updated_PS3_logoAs of last night I can finally tick off Uncharted 2: Among Thieves! I started playing this one in late 2010, with several unexplainable short stints between then and now. I’ve been distracted by a tonne of games, activities and various family-related interruptions; but every time I sat down to play it, I’d wonder why I ever stopped!

I’ve now started Uncharted: Golden Abyss on the PS Vita, which looks pretty amazing. I’m only about an hour into it—hopefully there aren’t too many of these artefact rubbing mini-games. I should really finish Golden Abyss before starting Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, which I bought on disc a couple of months back. It’s now a free download for PlayStation Plus subscribers—which is great, because my kids aren’t always around to change discs for me now that they’re at school.

Sid Meier’s Civilization V


To kick it off I’m about to open up Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Gold Edition on the iMac for the first time, which was today’s impulse buy at $10.00 from Green Man Gaming. My wife played Civilization Revolution on Xbox 360 to death, but hasn’t explored others from the series. I never managed to get the motivation to learn Civilization Revolution—maybe now is my time to shine!

A video game diary

Here is my attempt to keep a record of my gaming activity. I spend a lot of my time thinking about games; even starting games—but I rarely finish them. Releasing this incredibly interesting information publicly will hopefully motivate me to finish what I start.

I’ll soon compile a list of every game I have started (the games that at some point I had intended to finish), and their level of completion.

Maybe one day I’ll start writing reviews, but I can’t imagine these will be very objective—I tend to be either easily impressed, or easily bored depending on how many kids I have hanging off my legs.
