I’ve been gaming on PC since 2012 so, in terms of gaming mice, I have only previously owned a Razer Naga 2014 edition and a CM Storm Spawn. I liked the Razer Naga, the primary buttons felt responsive and were very quiet, and the sensor felt fine to me just playing games casually. But, as I got more serious about gaming on my PC, I looked for a simpler mouse having never really used the 12 thumb buttons, I was also interested in finding a mouse with an optical sensor. I had only ever used mice with a palm grip, so I decided to try the CM Storm Spawn to see if I preferred using a claw grip. I settled on more of a fingertip grip and the spawn worked great for me, but as you may know, it is near impossible to find the perfect mouse. I prefer 400 CPI in FPS games, so the 800-1800-3500 CPI steps were insufficient for me. In addition, the Spawn’s shape made it difficult for a more relaxed grip when web browsing and the like.
In Gone Home you arrive home to an empty house, after having been on a trip through Europe for the past year.
I don’t really want to say much about Gone Home, as the joy of the game is unraveling the story for yourself as you find notes throughout the house.
I am scrapping the “at a glance” idea, and will be doing only full reviews now, though they will still be quite brief. I am also adding the category of story into my reviews, as I think this is a very important aspect in games, especially in my next review.
Bioshock Infinite has you take on the role of Booker DeWitt as you battle against the many foes of Columbia.
The gun play is quite solid, though I dearly would have loved to have a weapon wheel in a game with such a large and varied arsenal, I found myself only using the sniper and the handcannon for most all of the game. I also didn’t find myself using the Vigors throughout the game, usually only remembering to use them through the use of a popup reminder.
My blog can now be found on tumblr as well. Now, where did I put that link? I know it’s around here somewhere…Ah, here it is.
Spare Parts starts you off as a robot who stumbles upon a broken down spaceship, you are then warped to different planets as you are tasked with collecting spare parts to repair said spaceship. Let the platforming and puzzles commence!
For those of you who are wondering, I can be found on the Playstation Network using the following ID:
In Madden NFL 11 you take control of your favorite NFL team (Patriots!) and fight it out on the battlefield! Err, football field!
You have probably noticed that my reviews have slowly become longer, and while still brief, not quit as brief as some of my earlier reviews.
In other news, I am going to start writing shorter reviews of games that I have not the time nor willpower to give a full review, these shorter reviews shall be known as: “at a glance”.
Note: I shall continue to write full reviews as well as the new “at a glance” reviews.
