The Walking Dead-Best Game of the Last 5 Years

I love games, however ive kept hearing about the game called “The Walking Dead”. Ive never seen the show of the same name but ive read so many good reviews about the game.

From the very start of the game its clear that this is an interactive-movie-game, but thats not a bad thing in this case when you have such amazing voice talent and animation.

The people at Telltail games have done such an amazing job its hard to think that their not one of the triple AAA studios who churn out this kinda stuff without a thought.

The ending and events in the game are so amazing and that’s just incredable to think that this is a game. Im ashamed and embarresed to admit that the ending had me in tears and that is how good this game is.

Bioshock 2 PC Version Plagued with problems

Bioshock 2 has been a real dispointment for me, the huge problems with Games For Windows Live causing crashes when you start the game. This has ruined the game for me.  Spent more time trying to fix the game than play it.

Thats not to say that its a bad game but on the PC is just not the game it should be, too many problems with Games For Windows Live and loading problems make it not work playing.

  • The long long long load times.
  • Crap support and rubbish patches.
  • The graphics look dated or something not as good as you would expect for the PC Version.
  • Complete waste of money and time.
  • Games for Windows Live keeps crashing the game very common issue

A quick visit to the steam forums and youll see the nightmare this game is get it for the Xbox or PS3 cause the PC Version is a terrable waste of time and money.

Steam and Modern Warfare 2- Steam goes for maintenance and CoD MW 2 dies

mw222_thumbIf there ever was a case for dedicated servers for Modern Warfare 2 its now, steam has gone on some maintenence update but so what you say well the problem is Call of Duty Modern Warfare on the PC needs the Steam “cloud” to work and so now its imposable to play the game. Now if Modern Warfare 2 was working on Dedicated servers this would  never happen.

So FUCK Infinty Ward,Steam and Activison for fucking up what was a a great game and turning it into a pile of steam shit.

How to CLEAN your PC from keyloggers.

wowkoAfter having my World of Warcraft Account hacked i set about searching for how to remove any viruses and other crap that had made there way on to my PC so a quick google came up with these two great tips.

1) A program called KeyScrambler — it is free for your web browser.
2) An addon for Firefox called “NoScript” — this defaults to denying scripts to run on pages you view. But, if you are absolutely certain that the site is safe, you can quite easily allow scripts.
3) A program called “SnoopFree Privacy Shield 1.0.7″ — which alerts you to any program trying to attach itself to your computers keystrokes.

First of all, a note: Hijackthis is a tool, used for finding infections in your computer. Please note: THIS IS NOT A SCANNER. It shows both malicous rules, but also LEGIT rules. Do not fix rules in Hijackthis yourself!
