Games Played in 2010

December 31, 2010

My “Games Completed” list this year is quite good.  Part of that is that my total number of games played is inversely proportional to the amount of time I play World of Warcraft.  Meaning I didn’t play much Warcraft this year, so I played a lot of other things.  The other reason is that I really tried to put an emphasis on completing games this year.  I pick up a lot of games and tend to dabble a lot, but I’m easily distracted by the next thing and leave many games hanging.  This year I dabbled less and finished more.  So without further ado…

Books Read in 2010

December 31, 2010

My book list this year is rather short this year.  As I said previously, I decided not to listen to any audiobooks this year, and I really didn’t concentrate too much on reading anything early in the year.  I’ve been making up for it the second half of the year, but it makes for a small list.

Audio Dramas in 2010

December 30, 2010

It’s time to start the year in review.  In previous years I listed my books read that year, and I still intend to do that this year. The list will be quite a bit shorter this year, though, because I made the decision at the beginning of 2010 not to listen to any audiobooks. I even canceled my Aubible subscription. Why? Well for years I’ve been buying audio dramas, mainly from Big Finish and primarily Doctor Who related. But I never listened to many of them because most of my spare “listening” time was taken up with audiobooks. So I decided to take a year and see how many audio dramas I could get through.  How did I do?

Papercraft Friday #91: Nintendo 3DS

June 18, 2010

The hit of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this year was the announcement of Nintendo’s upcoming handheld offering: the Nintendo 3DS.  While it looks very similar to the Nintendo DS, it sports an upper screen capable of displaying 3D images to the naked eye without the need for 3D glasses.  Gaming skeptics who saw it firsthand were won over by how good the effect is.  It also has two outward-facing cameras for taking 3D photos.

Paperkraft.net is all over it this week, releasing a paper model version of the Nintendo 3DS.  It might not power on and play games, but it’s definitely 3D.

Note: Modelers should not experience any optical or physical discomfort when building this 3D model.  If you do feel any eye or head aches, queasiness, or any other discomfort, you should cease building this model right away.  It may be too hardcore for you.

Not keen on this one?  Want more?  Check out other Papercraft Friday posts.

E3 2010 Sony Press Briefing Live Thoughts

June 15, 2010

And finally, we come to Sony’s press conference…

Killzone 3
– Built for 3D from the ground up
– Put on your 3D glasses… big contrast to the Nintendo show a couple of hours ago that made fun of 3D with glasses.
– The 3D effect is lost on the internet stream. We’ll have to rely on user impressions.
– To me, it looks like a good shooter, but generic in the sense that it could be Lost Planet or Resistance in terms of the theme.
– If all I need is normal 3D glasses I “borrowed” from the last 3D movie I saw, I might get it.
– Full compatible with PlayStation Move, but no details as to what that means

Short montage of game titles:
Motorstorm, Gran Turismo 5 in 3D, The Sly Collection, Crysis 2, Mortal Kombat, NBA 2K11, The Fight, Eyepet, Tumble, MLB10
