Less Than A Week Left/Xbox 360 Suggestions

Well, my “com­ing-of-age” saga is almost at a close- only four more days until I can legal­ly buy firearms and lit­tle sticks that you light on fire in order to obtain can­cer. I have been busy as hell this past week with grad­u­a­tion relat­ed stuff, as well as prepar­ing for my aun­t’s wed­ding on the 18th. Start­ing next Mon­day, you can expect at least one arti­cle every sin­gle day from yours tru­ly as I burst back on the scene with opin­ions and ideas. ^In lieu of any rel­e­vant images, here is me play­ing the trum­pet in a cow suit. I’m start­ing a reg­i­men of stuff I will do for a pre­scribed amount of time every week. This includes get­ting exer­cise (main­ly swim­ming, just cause I hap­pen to like swim­ming a hell of a lot more than run­ning), study­ing lan­guages (Span­ish,Read more…

Brief Update from CharcoalCoyote

Hey every­one. Just drop­ping in for a few to let every­one know what’s up. I’ve not dropped off the face of the plan­et; far from it, in fact. I’m grad­u­at­ing from high school (yes, I’m sev­en­teen years old for those of you who were unaware) on the 11th of this month, and I’m turn­ing eigh­teen on the 17th. My aunt is get­ting mar­ried on the 18th. With all of this junk going on, there’s been next to no time for any­thing that involves sit­ting still for long peri­ods of time. How­ev­er, expect an extrav­a­gan­za of new stuff when­ev­er I return! Stuff to look for­ward to includes: Indie Games vs. Big Name Devel­op­ers- my arti­cle that I owe DrPix­el from the QWOP Chal­lenge. A look at Por­tal 2 Mul­ti­play­er. Anoth­er “Games for Game­less Sit­u­a­tions” arti­cle. A look at DiRT 3 (andRead more…

Hands-on Preview: Dungeon Siege 3…..

I wasn’t always a fan of RPGs or ARPGs, but that has been chang­ing as of late. I have enjoyed Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and its sequel, all of the Bethes­da games (Elder Scrolls (start­ing with Mor­rowind), Fall­out 3), the Fable series if you want to call them RPGs of some sort, Torch­light (which I may start my sec­ond play through here short­ly) and of course any­thing that comes from that great place in the sky called Bioware as of late (yes, I am still cur­rent­ly enjoy­ing Drag­on Age 2). Nor­mal­ly my key gen­res of choice are action/adventure, rac­ing, FPS, and some sports titles here and there to round it my gam­ing port­fo­lio. As I grow old­er though, dun­geon crawl­ing, gath­er­ing large amounts of loot like swag at a con­ven­tion, and stat and skill track­ing are becom­ing more and moreRead more…

Qwop Challenge Winner!

Although it was tech­ni­cal­ly four days late, I still did receive one sub­mis­sion to the QWOP Chal­lenge! With a grand score of 101 meters (metres if you’re Euro­pean), and TWO rule bends, our win­ner is.… Dr. Pix­el! He request­ed that I write an arti­cle about “indie games in gen­er­al”. Pret­ty broad of a top­ic, but I’ll def­i­nite­ly nail togeth­er an arti­cle for him. I’d like to thank every­one who attempt­ed QWOP, and I’d like to encour­age every­one to get in on my next chal­lenge! I’ll give you three hints as to what it is: It involves sig­nif­i­cant amounts of luck. It involves a con­sole that is not cur­rent-gen. It will give me a chance to prac­tice my cast­ing skills. I’m cur­rent­ly fair­ly busy (I grad­u­ate the 11th of next month!), but I’ll have plen­ty of time to post the chal­lengeRead more…

The Witcher 2: The Review

Back in Octo­ber 2007 rel­a­tive­ly unknown devel­op­er, CD Pro­jekt with Atari released The Witch­er.   The orig­i­nal pro­vid­ed one of the most authen­tic, orig­i­nal and cap­ti­vat­ing RPG expe­ri­ences ever to land on the PC or any plat­form for that mat­ter.  The game was not with­out its prob­lems how­ev­er as it con­tained many graph­i­cal glitch­es, extreme­ly long load­ing times between sequences and a cen­sored ver­sion released in North Amer­i­ca.  The com­pa­ny respond­ed to these issues by not only releas­ing an updat­ed ver­sion of the game but adding in new quests, graph­i­cal enhance­ments and reduced load­ing times but pro­vid­ing it free to cus­tomers who had already pur­chased the game.  In fact CD Pro­jekt spent over 1 mil­lion dol­lars resolv­ing the issues its cus­tomers pre­sent­ed to them.   Ever since The Witch­er was released fans have been anx­ious­ly await­ing a con­tin­u­a­tion of the epic sto­ryRead more…

CharcoalCoyote’s Qwop Challenge!

So, I’m sure many of you have seen this game called QWOP by now. It’s pret­ty old news, and the cre­ator has already put out a new one called GIRP (which is just as hard, but in a dif­fer­ent way.) If you’ve still not seen it, HERE is a link to the game on its home web­site. Most of you who have played have only stuck it out to the ten meter mark before rage­quit­ting (I’ve made it to fifty meters three times, but nev­er got­ten past it.) So, I chal­lenge you, TGB read­ers, staff, and who­ev­er else would like to play: Beat QWOP. Go the dis­tance. Run all the way to the end, and jump as far as you can. But why, you may ask? Why would I con­sume that much of your time? How about this; the win­nerRead more…

Wishing for a different type of MMO…..

I have played World of War­craft. I play (once PSN comes back to life) D.C. Uni­verse. I have tried EVE Online. As much as I like DCU (I hear the moans, it’s not that bad), it real­ly does not hit nor rep­re­sent what I want in a MMO, and noth­ing out there does. I love fan­ta­sy set­tings, WoW has a great set­ting but the com­bat doesn’t do it for me and the art style (while there are times I love it) looks like a Han­na Bar­bera car­toon. I want a MMO to make an alter­nate life in a world that I could nev­er vis­it (no not Sec­ond Life), to be a world where every play­ers actions affect the next play­er and so on and so forth. The idea I have in my head for my per­fect MMO, is just that;Read more…
