My Gaming in Review - Top 11 Games of 2013 (#11-6)

Posted by tylerh1701, 06 March 2014 - - - - - - · 1183 views

The moment I'm sure you've all been waiting for. The exciting reveal of my absolute favorite games of 2013. Unlike my most Surprising , Disappointing , and Least Favorite games of the year, there was no way I could limit this list to just 3 entries. In fact, I couldn't even limit it to 10, because after reviewing my list I really felt like there were 1...

My Gaming in Review - Least Favorite Games of 2013

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 03 March 2014 - - - - - - · 986 views

In true CAG fashion, I'm way behind in writing up my last 2 blog posts to recap my gaming year of 2013. (At least I'm still not as bad as CheapyD with the 2013 Cheapy Awards). This post it to highlight my three least favorite games I played in 2013. Previously I highlighted my biggest disappointments and surprises of 2013. As always, this is a list of...

What are you playing this weekend? - XBLA Backlog Destruction Edition

Posted by tylerh1701, in Xbox 360 28 February 2014 - - - - - - · 1022 views

It's past noon, I'm gonna do the post.

My goal is to be completely done with my Xbox 360 by May of this year, so I've got some work to do on my digital backlog (I sold off most of my retail backlog except for a few games I was very interested in).

Since I started this, I've blown through a ton of games over the last couple weeks. It helps that these ga...

What are you playing this weekend? - House of Cards Edition

Posted by tylerh1701, 14 February 2014 - * * * * * · 963 views

Eh nobody's posted anything yet. I'll go ahead.

House of Cards Season 2 is already out on Netflix, I get off work in about an hour. I'm having a small party with a couple friends and a lot of booze. We'll watch a few episodes tonight, I'll probably go home and pass out, then have to re-watch the episodes tomorrow. I'll slowly work through the episode...

My Gaming in Review - Biggest Disappointments of 2013

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3 24 January 2014 - - - - - - · 1340 views

Like my previous blog, Biggest Surprises of 2013 , this list of disappointing games were games that I played in 2013, but they were not necessarily released in 2013.

Disappointment can be a hard thing to classify. Some games can be disappointing, some games can be bad, and some games can even be both. This list consists of the three games that most faile...

What Are You Playing This Weekend - Good vs. Evil Edition

Posted by tylerh1701, 17 January 2014 - - - - - - · 795 views

Sorry DaddyBoJangles, stealing the thunder.

Big thing again this weekend for me is football. I'm quite interested in both games this weekend. One of my closest friends is a huge Seahawks fan, so obviously I despise them. They've also somehow become the trendy team to cheer for, I have two other friends who have definitely hopped on the bandwagon. So...

Opinions Wanted - My One Gripe with Selling on Amazon

Posted by tylerh1701, 18 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1410 views

I've been selling on Amazon for the last couple years now, and it's been great. An amazing outlet to resell my games for straight cash (rather than store credit) and generally on par with local trade-in values (and sometimes well above). I don't sell a lot though, I usually only ever have 2-3 items in my inventory. I've maybe done 200 transactions over...

Black Friday Pickups

Posted by tylerh1701, 12 December 2013 - * * * * * · 1078 views

I had a successful Black Friday/Cyber Monday week. The last of my stuff is finally arriving so figured I'd post my pickups. Got everything I was wanting, specifically a new cheap doorbuster laptop from Best Buy because my old laptop is about 6 years old and it's time for a new one. Hope everyone else was as successful as I was!


My Gaming in Review - Biggest Surprises of 2013

Posted by tylerh1701, 09 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1378 views

So, like someone else who posted here, I'm a CAG and therefore I don't get to a whole lot of games when they release, or even soon after. I've only played a handful of games released in 2013, so it's not really fair for me to do any type of "Games of the Year" post or anything of that nature.

Rather, I'll just be mentioning a few games that I played ove...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - The Next Gen Holdout Edition

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One 15 November 2013 - - - - - - · 934 views

Eh, I've waited long enough. Time to uslurp DaddyBoJangles glory again.

As the title says, this weekend isn't anything special for me since I'm passing on next gen consoles for the time being. PS4 looks awesome and I can't wait to get my hands on one, but with my PS3 and 360 backlog I just can't justify picking one up at this time. It will be at least a...
