E3 Wrap Up - Sony

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita 24 June 2014 - * * * * * · 911 views

Figure I better get the rest of these posted, as E3 becomes more and more of an afterthought. Previously you can read my takeaways from the Microsoft E3 Conference .


I thought Sony did the best of the big 3, but they all did well. Sony had better surprises, which is my favorite part of E3. The white PS4 was the first out-of-nowhere reveal and...

Ranking My 18 Platinum Trophies

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita 23 May 2014 - - - - - - · 1651 views

I'm bored and need something to do until my lunch at 11:30, so I thought I'd do an overview of the 18 Sony games I've actually been able to Platinum.

#18 Lego Indiana Jones 2 - A pretty crumby game and a pretty boring platinum.

#17 Lego Batman 2 (Vita) - Little bit better than Indiana Jones, but still not much to be said about it.

#16 Sonic's Ultima...

Three weeks back I posted the first half of my favorite games I played during 2013 list , and now I'm back to wrap it up with my 5 favorite games of the year. Let's get straight to it!

#5 - Uncharted 2 (PS3)

I'm a little bit behind with the Uncharted series but finally got the chance to play Uncharted 2 earlier in the year. Uncharted 2 is exactly li...

My Gaming in Review - Least Favorite Games of 2013

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 03 March 2014 - - - - - - · 1025 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...

My Gaming in Review - Biggest Disappointments of 2013

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3 24 January 2014 - - - - - - · 1394 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? - The Next Gen Holdout Edition

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One 15 November 2013 - - - - - - · 997 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...

Live Blogging GTA V [Spoilers]

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 18 September 2013 - - - - - - · 1083 views

So I never buy games day 1 anymore, but I picked up GTA V with a $20 BB gamers club GC and hope to resell it in a week or so for at least $40, so hopefully it will turn into a cheap rental for me.

Anyways, this has been a pretty hyped game, so I figured I'd "liveblog" the start of the game and just mention some of the things that pop up to me. (Not reall...

Turning a Bad Purchase into a Decent Purchase

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 02 July 2013 - - - - - - · 1865 views

The best thing about CAG is buying cheap games, that's for sure. But JP's Gamestop trade-in thread, the Best Buy Trade-in thread, and other similar threads also make it possible to sometimes get top dollar on the games you own.

Before I ever knew about CAG, I was still pretty cheap, but mostly did my shopping from weekly ads. Kmart had Alice: Madness R...

Quick E3 Impressions


This would have been slightly more interesting a few days ago, but blogs were down and so I didn't have anywhere to post it. Anyways, here are some of my takeaways from E3 2013:

(+) Microsoft introduces a lot of new games. Not everything looked quite for me, but I think Ryse looks like...
