United Gamedom Podcast

by on

A wild blog appears!

What is this craziness?! Another blog from yours truly, of course! Yes it has been a few months since I did a blog here showing the games I completed for 2011. This is just going to a short but sweet blog to promote the podcast I have been currently doing with two good friends of mine on here in Denis (NeoJedi) & Derek (Gigastormz)! It is called the United Gamedom podcast because it started off with myself and another good chap called Liam from England but due to health problems and time conflicts, he had to bow out and Denis & Derek were more than happy to drop in since they wanted to do a podcast themselves. We are currently on episode 5, which is up on itunes now for you guys to check out here:

But if you want to check out past episodes, we have a Youtube channel with all of them there along with the links to the mp3 downloads if you want to listen to them on your mp3 player. This can be found here for your listening pleasure!

I hope you guys enjoy and feel free to subscribe to us on Youtube and/pr itunes for future episodes!

Finished Games of 2011

by on

Hello, remember me? Yes, it's been quite some time since I actually did a blog on here mainly because I don't have the heart to do them anymore but I still surf around these parts regularly. Now, I have done this blog every year since 2009 so you should have an idea what it is if you follow me on here and on twitter, which is DarroM85 by the way. It is the list of games I have finished in 2011. Now there are some omissions on here like Batman: AC & Dead Space 2 and believe me those are probably 2 games I regret not finishing this year (Dead Space was one the first games in 09 I finished so could be the same thing here). Like I did last year, I put the difficulty down if it had one and the date it was finished on. Not quite as big as it was last year but I am happy but didn't end up doing that goal of finishing 10 RPGs but instead only finishing one or two really. Without further ado, here are my finished games of 2011:

1. Mafia II – Medium Difficulty (9th January)
2. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II – Medium Difficulty (14th January)
3. Sin & Punishment: Successor of the Skies – Normal Difficulty (15th January)
4. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (26th January)
5. Professor Layton & Pandora's Box (31st January)

10. X-Men Arcade – Normal Difficulty (3rd April)
11. God of War II (PS3 GoW Collection) – God (Hard) Mode (6th April)

Hey guys, do you want to know what I've been doing recently? Here goes...

by on

Now for those who still follow me around these parts, I have a Youtube channel that I occasionally put links to in my blogs over the last while. I have done a few videos recently showing off my PS3 Collection and an unboxing of a PC game that came out today, which if you're interested in is right here!

Anyway, I've been playing a good bit of DiRT 2 recently mainly thanks to the Giant Bomb's Thursday Night Throwdown that happened a few weeks back. The game is really fun and some of the tracks look gorgeous but at the end of the day, I still like the first one more mainly because it was more rally than rallycross etc but the 2nd is still tops.

I got Mortal Kombat and Portal 2 the same day that PSN went down thus never got to play them online until last Sunday with the latter where I played some co-op with good ol Denis aka NeoJedi aka DBoyDen aka The Montreal MFer! :P Was very enjoyable and the single player was a lot of fun also, which I fnished 2 weeks ago. Glad I didn't have to resort to hints online but a few did bug me for a while but you feel like an idiot when you realise what you had to do.

Mortal Kombat is easily my favourite game this year thus far and that is very surprising to say the least. I just had a blast playing the story mode and doing the dfferent challenges on the challenge tower, which I have yet to finish since they're getting pretty hard now. Can't play online due to the stupid online pass having to go through the store, which isn't up but if anyone has the PS3 version of MK and wants to fight online, hit me up when the time comes.

Outland is another game I played and completed recently and my god, that game was excellent! Seen a trailer shortly before it came out and I knew I had to play the game then. Got it and loved it and its the best XBLA game to come out in ages and should be great if you enjoy Metroid and the later Castlevania games since it has elements of those two as well.

In conjunction with the PC game I got today and did an unbxoing video of, I am playing through the first one and quite liking it thus far. I know a lot of people loved The Witcher and going to see if I am in that camp once the end credits roll, which I would like to see sometime this year (or just check them on Youtube :P)!

If you really want to follow my ramblings etc on a more regular basis, best bet is to follow me on twitter where I am DarroM85. A few of you here already are and appreciate but for those that still check me out here, I am on there FYI.

That is all for now so take care people!

Enter Indie Development?!

by on

Hello people! Recently, I've come to the conclusion that I want to create an indie game however big or small, successful or unsuccessful it may be! Now, game development is not an easy task and will take dedication to get the game done at the end of the day and there are many stages like concept design, design, programming, testing etc etc. I have a video here that will give you the basic premise of the game I have in mind and hopefully I will start on concept design in the next several months.

Let me know what you think and take care!

Darro's Pickups 08/04/11

by on

You know the drill people. Click here for another short pickups video. Yes, it is a long journey away from my dead long 30 min videos I had on here back in the day. Enjoy and if you have questions to ask me for an upcoming video, let me know thanks!

Darro's Back! (For now)

by on

For those interested, I do my videos over in Youtube hence why you never seen them here. Now that I have an iphone 4, I record all my videos in HD now and therefore the quality is a lot better than it was before with my ancient webcam. Just uploaded a video showing what I have picked up since last December so if you want to know, feel free to check them out now below:

Part 2

Thanks for dropping by!

Brief thoughts on AC: Brotherhood ending

by on

Let's just say that I hope Ubisoft Montreal explain what the hell is going on in Assassin's Creed III, as that Brotherhood ending was mad confusing! Those of you have finished it would know what I am talking about. I did enjoy the game as much as I did II but parts of it did annoy me sometimes and the controls weren't always perfect. What are your thoughts on the ending for those of you who have finished it or just checked it on Youtube or elsewhere? :P

The title of the game says it all!

by on

If you're the kind of game that gets annoyed pretty easily, I advise you not to play Sin & Punishment 2 on the Wii. It is a great game no doubt but man it is annoyingly hard and easily my most frustated game of 2010.
