Aspiring Stand Up Comedian from Britain, that believes Monty Python and Bill Hicks were the greatest two things to happen to the human race... I'm being deadly serious... I also believe Mass Effect to be the greatest gaming franchise of all time, as well believing it to be the greatest Sci-Fi universe created through any entertainment medium. I play games across the entire genre spectrum, I just play anything worth playing basically, no FPS or RPG hangups as it were. I'm a keen Martial Artist, holding black belts in BJJ, Judo, and I also Kickbox. I'm a huge Rugby and Football (Soccer) fan, although I don't play them much anymore, and have a passing interest in Ice Hockey, which I have never played. My favourite movie would probably be Pulp Fiction, and my favourite band is, at the moment, Biffy Clyro. If you've read this far you know more about me than I do. Seriously, why have you read all this? O.K if you must know my favourite colour is green. Get a life damn it!

I’ve been intrigued by Firewatch since it’s initial reveal, and this trailer has made me think I was right to be so. Except… Does anyone else think those hands look kinda’ weird…?

I started drinking at about fourteen. It was bought by my parents at the local pub, but still not cool, I think it’s more common here in the UK. I then started going out on weekends and having a “few” cans of cider with my friends on weekends “down the skate park”. By the time I reached my eighteenth birthday I was bored of it. I didn’t like the taste of any of it (except vodka because it’s tasteless), and hated the actual feeling of being drunk. I remember one night specifically thinking, “If I stay here for another two hours I’ll have to have a couple more cans otherwise people will think I’m weird. Then I can go home, get straight to bed, and wake up sober”. I then realised I was only drinking for other people, and I hated it. I saw how my parents were every weekend up the pub (& my mother every night in the house…), and hated them when they were drunk. I hated my friends when they were drunk, and more importantly I hated myself when I was drunk. So on my eighteenth birthday party I went out on the town with “the gang”, got so drunk I don’t remeber half the night, woke up the next morning and haven’t had anoher drink since.

I’m a much happier and better person for it now at twenty-four. I took some stick for it obviously, but that soon stopped when people were sure I wasn’t “being a d**k about it”. Most people in my life still drink, and I don’t judge them for it, and it’s never got in the way of any romantic relationships. I have the “Sober UFC nights” at my place every time a big fights on and my friends like it. We actually talk then.

I also have to give a “shout out” (sorry…) to CM Punk, and Bill Hicks. Two of my hero’s, especially at eighteen. They showed me that not drinking was actually a valid life choice. Well, it works for me and a few other people. Even if we are most probably the worlds smallest minority… ; )

A great article Colin. Thanks to you and everyone else in this really interesting comments section for sharing.

With this and Dragon Age: Inquisition coming out this fall I’m going to be all fantasy RPG’d out… Then The Witcher 3 is being released… If I’m ever going to get sick of dragons and swords it’s going to be over the next few months. I don’t think it’ll happen though. ; )

Comment

I know, but I wouldn’t be suprised if playing the multiplayer somehow affects the singleplayer experience like the Galactic Readiness meter did in ME3. I loved the ME3 multiplayer, I just don’t think it’s a good idea for devs to make it seem like by not playing multiplayer you’re punished in singleplayer. Rewarding people for doing both makes sense it keeps them coming back, but subtle things like that GR percentage not climbing can really irk people, like me.

Comment

Sort of. The Galactic Readiness meter in the single player really got on my nerves though. It never moved and I felt like I was somehow not doing the right thing by playing the single player first. Maybe I shouldn’t of used the word separate, what I really meant is that I hope there is no direct gameplay interactivity between the modes, unlike ME3.

It looks like it could be really fun. I just hope that it’s a completely separate experience from the single player unlike ME3’s multiplayer.

I’ve actually lost count… It’s probably much more than that… I didn’t have many GB games…

A fun read, especially for a 1st genner like myself. It makes me want to go back and play Red again for the nth time. An itch I might scratch as I haven’t played a Pokemon game since Silver.

Dave I must apologize as when I read that your Charmander was still a Charmander by the time you got to Cerulean City I laughed… ; )

Comment

A really cool read. In a similar vein I remember spreading a rumour that I had read online around my primary school. It was that in Japan scientists had experimented on mice with electricity and made the first Pikachu… That was a fun week… ; )

Comment

Yes I agree. I’m intrigued by it and I will play with it, but I want to do so on my own terms. As for Dark Souls… I played it offline for that purpose… ; )

It could be. But I hope it isn’t mandatory. I for one just want a single player MG experience.

Comment

Thanks, but I knew that already. : )

Wait until Griffin sees that when you fight Heroic Sapphiron you don’t get the blocker… Just a GIF of that reaction would be worth something. ; )

So Ni No Kuni portable then…? I’m in!

Excitement – Anxiety – Cynicism – Depression. Sums up my emotional journey parsing this "New Hope"…

Phil’s laugh at finding out about Heroic Patchwork’s Windfury… Almost better than the rest of the video, almost. ; )

Worked for me.

Deathlord is actually made for this fight.

Comment

As a big Souls fan these changes don’t bother me in the slightest. I’m glad From are taking a few more risks with their formula. As much as I loved DS2 it was a refined DS, which itself was a refined Demon Souls. Not that that’s a bad thing. However, a faster From game where blocking isn’t an option really excites me. I can’t wait to learn more about Bloodborne.

“[even though] my reproductive organs have never made a game design decision.” LOL! The perfect summary of this debate… There shouldn’t need to be one. Men and women, guess what? Pretty much the same…
