I spent much of my Memorial Day weekend gaming with my five-year-old niece. Her request! Here’s what worked and what didn’t. (more…)

Game Diary - May 21, 2009: Best Time For Reviews?

Filed under: Totilo Game Diary — Tags: , , — stephentotilo @ 9:00 am

I’ve been playing “InFamous” whenever I have a spare moment during the last several days. I’ve been assigned to write Kotaku’s review. Technically we could have reviewed the game yesterday, though it’s not out until next week. Our review will run closer to the launch.

I’m appreciating the extra time with the game, but I’m wondering: do gamers prefer reviews to run as early as possible — or closer to the day when a game is out?

Game Diary - May 20, 2009: Sleep

Filed under: Totilo Game Diary — stephentotilo @ 9:00 am

There is a time of night when I am either too tired to play games anymore or, if I soldier through it, can then stay up playing for hours. Old-man-in-training that I am, that time is 11:00. That’s when the drowsiness hits. Last night, I barely made it to 11.  Am I alone in this?

I think it was Shakespeare who first wrote: “When you have no time to play, you have nothing to say.” That was in Macbeth, right? Or Richard III?

Aside from “Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars” and “ArtStyle Aquia,” I’ve drifted from handheld games this year. (more…)

I got “inFamous” yesterday and just started it. I’ll be reviewing it. Should I play as good or evil? (more…)

Game Diary - May 14, 2009: No Games, Just Lost Finale

lost

I don’t play games much on weeknights anymore. Something about still trying to sort through my new work schedule. But last night, the reason was because I was watching the Lost finale. Spoiler-filled discussion of it ensues below. (more…)

Game Diary - May 13, 2009: Podcast Relief

I don’t think I’ve been caught up with the video game podcasts I listen to since 2009 began. I fantasize that one day I’ll live in a world of gaming podcasts that don’t exceed an hour. (more…)

Game Diary - May 12, 2009: Pac-Man

Filed under: Totilo Game Diary — Tags: — stephentotilo @ 9:00 am

Not much to write about this morning, as I didn’t play any games last night. But I did finally see a replay of Manny Pacquiao starching Ricky Hatton this morning. The best fighter in the world has a video game nickname. Pac-Man. How cool is that?

Over the weekend I learned how to turn my new PS3 into my old one. As I made the transition I had to make a surprising choice that got me wondering yet again about a feature the current consoles lack. (more…)
