Kane & Lynch | done

Wow!  I can't believe that I made it to the end of my non-backward compatible reviews on the 360!  And, my 360 is now safely wrapped up, protected from dust and water.  This mini review is for Kane Lynch: Dead Men on the xbox 360. This game was completed in March 2019 (so I hope I remember much of it)The plot from Wikipedia:The game opens with a voiceover of ex-mercenary Adam 'Kane'

Batman Arkham City | Done

Here's another game a finished a while ago.  This is a mini review of Batman Arkham City for the xbox 360  which I finished back in November 2018.I am always reluctant to start a new Batman game, but I am (constantly) surprised as how much I end up enjoying the game in the end. This is one of the reasons I left this game for the end (or close to it) when I was going through my remaining

Review: Auberon: An Expanse Novella

Auberon: An Expanse Novella by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars An interesting, short, novella about the newly minted governor of Auberon - Auberon being the breadbasket for the Laconian empire (sort of a replacement for Ganymede). I'd love to learn more about the characters in this book, both the "mafia" and the government side. I liked the saying near the end which was an offshoot

Huzzah! New software!

I don't often get excited about new software (or now hardware for that matter). Back in the day when I had more time I was more of a tinkerer, so new hardware, and new software, meant more exciting playtime.  These days I am much more pragmatic about my tools, which means I don't often get excited about new things.  There are some tools though that I do get excited about, especially when

Remember me | Done

Another one of my "finish before putting the 360 away" games.  This game is Remember Me  and I finished the game on "script kiddie" (easy) back in January 2019. This game is not backward compatible to the xbox one (yet), but I think it would make a nice addition.The plot from wikipedia:The game begins as Nilin (Kezia Burrows), an Errorist imprisoned in the Bastille Fortress, is having almost

Robotech Battlecry | Tried

Earlier this year, before I put away my xbox 360, I decided to try out Robotech Battlecry for the original xbox - which is backward compatible with the 360, but not the one (come on Microsoft and TDK!).  I ended up trying this game but I didn't finish it.The plot from wikipedia:The game follows the exploits of ace pilot Jack Archer. After serving as a mercenary in the Global Civil War, flying

Review: Tiamat's Wrath

Tiamat's Wrath by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Another fast-paced installment of the series (hard to believe that there is only one more left!!!). This one jumps a bit into the future with a slightly older crew, with different responsibilities. Some of our crew die, and some make miraculous comebacks! The bringing together of former crew members reminded me a bit of Star Trek

Καλό μήνα! | Δεκέμβριος 2019

Καλό μας μήνα!  Είναι λίγο δύσκολο να το πιστέψω, αλλά το τέλος του 2019 είναι σχεδόν εδώ. Τι έχουμε να κάνουμε αυτό μήνα;  Στην δουλειά έχουμε να κλείσουμε το εξάμηνο, και στις σπουδές έχουμε να τελειώσουμε αυτή την γκαντέμικη

Bionic Commando xbox 360 | done

One more game from the "completed a while ago" pile that I have not written about.  This one is Bionic Commando for the xbox 360, and I completed it on 5/18/19.  This video game felt like a sequel to the NES version of the game (which I haven't played a ton).The game is a 3D world interpretation of what the classic bionic commando game. You use your bionic arm to attack and swing around

Nostalgia sells...and it's expensive!

As I was browsing my RSS feeds the other day I saw that Motorola has a new RAZR phone coming out.  I still have my old RAZR 3G in a drawer somewhere as a backup phone in case my smartphones die 😁 (wonder if the battery is still any good).  The original RAZR phone was an insane $500 (if memory serves me right) for a "dumb" phone that was network-locked.  This is at a time when I could
