Evening Reading

ArmA II continues to impress me, especially when I fail missions only to have the game continue and add objectives to the following mission based upon my utter failure. That's some awesome gameplay right there, folks.

July is a bit of a quiet month for game releases until the end, which brings StarCraft II and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. Now, you're probably on board for the first one. That's okay, but BB:CS is quite awesome and is a great niche fighting game to play in between streaks of Super Street Fighter IV.

  • HOMEBUILDERS! Anyone wanna rate this build? The things to note are 1. trying to keep it around a grand, 2. would prefer to play current games (mostly a Blizzard/Valve fanboy) with all the eye candy they got, and 3. Complete Noob / First build ever!
