Why Diablo II fails(Warning: Opinion)

When I finally got my hands on Diablo II I was sure it was going to blow my mind and/or my head off with sheer awesomeness. Installing it was a kind of ritual, getting ready to witness astonishment that can make my head explode.

As you can tell from the title of this post, it did not happen. Boredom came in quick, around Act II. Starting from this point I prayed that it might get only better. It only got worse. The goddamn-wtf-were-they-thinking midgets from the jungle made me say...

Recently I replayed Half Life 2. It's been long since I actually finished the game. 5 years I think. Plus I never got to play the episodes. So when I finally got my hands on the Orange Box, I started to play without hesitation.

Needless to say, I was stunned by Alyx's performance as a combat companion and as a likable NPC. I'm mainly talking about the episodes during which you spend around 95% in ep.1, and 75% in ep.2 of the time with her.

When I started ep. 1 I was...

Grand Theft Auto IV

Posted 02-20-2009 at 02:29 AM by Joe Siegler (The Well of Wishes)

I've finally started playing Grand Theft Auto IV.

I had it the day it came out, but I didn't own an HDTV then. I played for a little, but got mad and stopped. The reason was because the map on an SDTV (or at least mine) was really hard to see. All the spots on the map looked like exactly the same thing. I couldn't figure out which thing was which. It made me so mad I didn't want to play.

My Top 3 Game Disappointments of 2008

I might get flamed for the first two places, but the freedom of speech must prevail :D

3. Alone in the Dark.

Not much surprise here. The game would've been brilliant if it weren't for the bugs and design decisions. It had the qualities of a triple A title and yet all this effort was hindered. Even though it can be frustrating, I still think this title is worth at least trying just for the ideas.

2. Prince of Persia.

Well, my first blog... because I'm bored. And the topic of my first blog, taking inspiration from Zuljin and December Man. Remember, I don't play MP... single player only.

My top five games of 2008:

5: Grand Theft Auto 4 - Well, it's amazing. Honestly what is there to say about GTA4 that others haven't?
The story is wonderful, engaging, emotional, gripping, funny... it goes on and on. Niko is the first star in a GTA game that actually seems human. Yes, he's...
