Dragon Age: Origins

Posted on November 10th, 2009 in Axel Night, Video Games by Axel Night

I’d probably post more on the front page, if I didn’t typically associate doing so with a need for some kind of magazine-like article professionalism.  So, today’s experiment is something of a detour to rational thought with half-assed front page theatre.  It’s forum-quality content with a front page hype!  I don’t buy games at launch often, so I have to validate my $50 purchase somehow.

What can I say about Dragon Age: Origins that’s going to surprise you?  It’s everything I expected, nothing I didn’t.  It lived up to the hype and the review sites are juiced.  Good for them.

Knackered Nostalgia: “Mohawk & Headphone Jack” and “Rocky Rodent”

Posted on September 18th, 2009 in Axel Night, Video Games by Axel Night

It’s been a while since I’ve contributed consistent content to the good and proud AbG.  Things are what they are.  I’ve been reconsidering doing the video thing, but I keep remembering the skeletons in my closet.  Drunken, poorly recorded skeletons made with Windows Movie Maker and a mic that picks up everything yet records what’s right next to it like a bucket.  A year and some ago, I made the "Knackered Nostalgia" series: two video retro-reviews on some of my more obscure SNES games.  I promptly sealed them off in a vault, never to be seen again.  Until now.

After 10,000 years they are free!  Time to conquer Earth!

Champions Online

Posted on September 14th, 2009 in Axel Night, Video Games by Axel Night

Axel isn’t exactly a massive fan of the massively multi-player online role playing games.  The Mummorpaguh was not designed with me in mind.  I play Guild Wars, though less than any actual person who claims to play Guild Wars ought.  I’ve given World of Warcraft a few ounces of my time, but I haven’t sacrificed enough of my soul to reach 80 (or even 60).  So, the game frequently reminds me that I’m not actually playing it yet, instead rather working through some painful hazing ritual.  And the list goes on, and on, and I’ve made my many cookie cutters, and worked really hard to make my little avatars unique by trying to be like everyone else.  And then I actually meet other people online, and any charm there might have been is lost, and I go off to play Final Fantasy 6 again.

And with all of this in the back of my mind, I bought Champions Online.

Plants vs Zombies (PC)

Posted on May 6th, 2009 in Axel Night, Video Games by Axel Night

If you follow the site or podcast, you know that I am, in fact, dead.  It happens to the best of us.  Some dirty hobo bites you, but you write it off and wake up hungover with a strange itch and hankering for some bipedal fast food.  As a result, I haven’t had much in the way of free time, and when I do make it out to be social, I just end up eating their brains.  So, like any simple minded automaton without much free time, I found myself at Pop Cap Games.  There, I found Plants vs Zombies.

Dungeons & Dragons 4e: Player’s Handbook 2

Posted on March 21st, 2009 in Axel Night, Tabletop Gaming by Axel Night

It’s been about six months since the release of D&D 4th Edition.  Since launch, Wizards of the Coast has been churning out books and side material at a dizzying pace in trying to hush the inevitable "but my 3.5 has more options to play with" gripes.  This month, the Player’s Handbook 2 dropped, and I dashed to pick mine up yesterday.  If your biggest complaint about 4th Ed was the missing core classes from 3.5, this might be what tips the scale for you.  Is that all its worth, and does it deliver?  Jump, man, jump!
