Rant: Building a computer sucks! I'm sure all of you have been waiting with baited breath for my newest blog post. Unfortunately, re-building my desktop has not been the pleasant experience I envisioned.

After carefully packing up most of the components of my old PC from Texas and bringing them back with me to Seattle, I eagerly looked forward to the prospect of getting a new (SMALLER)...

Guide: Killing Floor vs. Left 4 Dead: The Definitive Guide Every Steam sale it's inevitable that the Killing Floor vs. Left 4 Dead argument crops up. Usually it goes a little something like this:



Noob: How is Killing Floor? Will I like it?
Helpful Person: It's a great game. Do you play Left 4 Dead? If you like that, you'll probably like KF.

Being the CAG that I am, I go cheap on absolutely everything, hardware and accessories included. A little over a year ago I was on a mission to get my first "gaming" mouse after years of using cheap mice I found on sale. Initially, it seemed...

Review: The Holiday Express (Train Simulator 2014 Stand Alone DLC) The Holiday Express - $19.99
http://store.steampo...com/app/222621/
Genre: Simulation

The Holiday Express is Christmas themed standalone DLC for Train Simulator 2014. Like some of their prior themed DLC, I wouldn't surprised to be pulled from the site pretty soon, but I snatched it up during the Steam Winter sale for $2.99.

The DLC is basically one...

Every now and then I run across a game I stop playing, usually for getting too hard or being to boring. This column is dedicated to those such games.

To be honest, the only reason I even started playing A Walk in the Dark was because it was the first game listed in t...

Genre: Casual, Empathy, Storybook

I don't know if there's much that can be said about this game. It's only 10 minutes long and it's more of an interactive storybook than a game. I thought the colors, music, and environment was nice and the experience was definitely worth the little time I put in it...

Welcome to The Awful Gamer's Blog! Welcome to The Awful Gamer!

So I decided to start up a CAG Blog a while ago, but haven't gotten around to actually posting anything. The purpose of this blog will be to post reviews, first impressions, and recaps of any games I might be playing. Hopefully it'll help me attack my backlog, but realistically I'll probably abandon it by tomorrow.

Why the na...
