Just in time! Right before my semester starts next week, and my gaming tanks until the summer, I was able to start playing, and finished, Dishonored. This is one of those games that was a hand-me-down from a friend that moved away. I tried playing it right after I had completed Bioshock Infinite, however the game styles were too similar and I wanted something else to buffer these
Adieu Library Books!
I can't believe I missed this bit of news last February! I was checking to see if there are any updates to one of my favorite applications - library books - when I saw a note from the author that the software would not longer be updated. Too bad, because this was quite a useful application, both on the Mac originally, and then on iOS. This app allowed you to log into your local academic
Hitman: Blood Money | Done

Just before 2014 is done I managed to make my way through Hitman: Blood Money, the last game in the Hitman HD Trilogy that I bought at the end of 2013. I think part of the reason that I really got through this game quickly was because I played it on Normal (7 saves, regular AI), but still I was mostly playing for the storyline and not the achievements which makes this sort of a speedrun for me.
Hitman Contracts | Done
Well, that didn't take long! I guess it was a combination of having the holidays, and playing this game on normal mode that made it seem like a breeze. Hitman: Contracts is the second game in the Hitman Trilogy HD collection, and the third in the series as a whole. It still follows Agent 47 around his contracted killings work. I think this game was a bit of an improvement over Hitman 2
End of year shipyard clearning
With 2014 coming to a close, with little room to grow in my Star Trek Online ship inventory, and with several ships (Tier 5 Upgrade and Tier 6), like the Sarr Theln Breen ship, I thought it would be a good idea to go through my inventory and clean things out a bit. I was keeping a number of ships around in a just in case I want to use them again fashion, but the truth is they are a bit underpowered
Hitman 2 | Done
About a year ago I bought the Hitman Trilogy HD for the xbox 360. It was a good deal and it seemed that Hitman was one of those games that many people have played and that people know about, so it was something that I should be playing to gain at least a passing familiarity with it. The trilogy did not include the original Hitman: Code 47 (which I guess was a Windows-only) release so I
Well...I guess it's time to bid adieu to TvTag :-/. This is a social television watching service that took over the old GetGlue once GetGlue was bought by i.TV. The concept behind GetGlue, and later on TvTag was that you could check into shows that you were watching, you would thus have an opportunity to see what your friends were watching, get some recommendations for television shows,
Η σχολική καφετέρια
Τον περασμένο μήνα δεν έγραψα κάτι για τις πρώτες μου εντυπώσεις στην Αμερική, αφού φέτος κλείνω τα 20 χρόνια από τότε που επέστρεψα. Για αυτό τον μήνα είπα να γράψω κάτι για την σχολική καφετέρια. Όταν λέμε καφετέρια δεν
Sevylon 5: Last best hope for peace
Back in the day a friend of mine and I used to have debates about which series was better, Babylon 5 or Star Trek Deep Space Nine. I sided with DS9 back then (still do, the dialog on Babylon 5 is pretty awful - good story though). There used to be a parody comic strip (which has now disappeared from the web) which had various off-shoots like Sevylon 5 (Babylong 5 parody). If the
Gears of War: Judgement | Done
[spoiler alert] It's been a few weeks since I finished Gears of War: Judgement, but with the end of the semester, and other stuff, it's been not easy to sit down and write a few thoughts about the game ;-)This game is a prequel to the Gears of War series of games that I've played before. This game takes place through flashbacks as each character is called upon to provide testimony for chargers of dereliction
