Team Fortress 2 – Meet the pyro

Last year I found out about the “meet the…” videos from Team Fortress 2. I quickly downloaded the game on to my computer at which point it crashed and I forgot all about the game due to a very poor internet connection. Now at a new house with a lot better internet (thank you Virgin) I am back playing video games via Steam including Team Fortress 2.

While that may seem boring to you, it means I have a buzz for this game just as the final “meet the…” comes out. As a complete and utter rubbish gamer – though I love playing them – I adore playing the Pyro so it seems fitting.


The video is great, playing on the “him/her” debate and also showing a side you had never seen before! I love how the character thinks they are helping others in a land of unicorns and rainbows.

So do you think the Pyro is a girl or guy? As the music clearly has “Do you believe in magic, in a young girls heart” with only the Scout saying “him” through the whole film as others call out monster.


The only thing we do know, Pyro is crazy!

The truth about getting a PS3

Today I got a PS3. Having brought it at 4pm and promptly bringing it home, it is 11.22pm, and I still haven’t played anything!

It is not because I haven’t tried; there is a lot of downloading involved in getting a PS3!

First it started up and wanted to download updates, then to play a racing game, it had to download and install over 1gb of game that I thought came on the game disc I brought!

All other consoles I have used, if they have ever needed updating, either allow you to choose to update later, or it is no where as bad!

This evening was planned to be trying out all the different new games but it has been nothing of the sort!

It doesn’t help that for some reason our tv has gone insane so there is currently only the BBC channels available.

Still there has been resorting to previous gaming consoles or methods, with pc or Wii usage this evening!

How stupid is that!

I hope that nothing else long winded like this happens with this silly piece of gear. I also hope it is worth the money and the weight!

So if your getting a PS3, don’t expect to play it the same day that you have brought it, or any games there after.

Trying for a taste of role playing

Another night visiting my friends, another night of a game.

This time it was the role playing game hunters. Again midway through a game, with characters all worked out and developed. These are real role playing veterans I am playing with as well how have played together for years.

They know the games but also how each other play.

Taking on the role of Jess for an hour was not as packed full of adventure as it sounds as most of that hour was explaining to me what my character was, backstory and finally where we were in the story.

I wish we had been able to play longer so I could get more of a taste for the game however after food and putting the little one to bed, there was little evening left!

So hopefully one day I will get to try again, though I think I might find some other n00bs to play with first…

New League of Legend character Lulu!

(EDIT: if you want to know what she is like check out my other post at )

WEEEEEEELLLLLLLL NOOOOOWWWWW! In the words of the great singer “lulu”, this character does make me want to shout, and giggle and squeal!

The new character (also called Lulu) is a cute mini blue sorceress with a little faerie called Pix


Not only is this character so cute, but she at last is a support character! There are few true support characters in the Riot made game, and there has been even fewer released lately. But the reason I am looking forward to having a go with this character is the Whimsy spell which apparently in terms of actually playing is good, as it stops enermies being able to cast spells or attack. For me however it is the fact that they get turned into a cute critter!!!


I can’t wait to see what happens and playing support is my favourite thing to do! I think this is the most exciting news ever! But I am sure with the cute factor and this cool new support being available, that getting the chance to actually pick her is going to be very hard at first!

If you want to know more about her, check out the post on the league of legend website here.

I’m still scared of creepers

I am ashamed to say it, but creepers still scare the life out of me when I play minecraft.

I can’t help it, but the fact that they blow up, make a hissing noise and chase me is enough to have me wanting to hide!

It makes the game exciting but I am still terrified of them. Even playing the sound when I wasn’t playing the game puts the fear in me!

I will just have to be brave… and actually fight one one day!

So does it scare you too?

New design – Purpose gaming website

After the success of the brand creation for Purpose Gaming, today I finished the design work for the website for now.

The red and black theme has continued, with a very grungy and yet clean design that goes with the branding. It will be exciting to see if people like the new look, and will give Purpose a chance to start working on his streaming and writing again!

There is still quite a way to go before the page is finished, as Purpose now needs to work his SOE magic so more people will find it.

Why not check out the page now and tell me what you think at

N00b vs newbie

I have always thought that a N00b and a newbie were the same or a very similar thing, yet I am quickly finding this is not the case.

There seems to be a difference in maturity in the two, and while I thought I was a N00b in terms of being a geek, I am not. Really I am a newbie as I have the unexperience yet strive to push my self.

I am not actually a n00b, who is perceived as annoying and a problem to those in the gaming and geeky world. This seems in fact a term for those who seem to think they are amazing… yet are not!

See I clearly know I am rubbish and still learning alot at everything… so I should be happy about that!

Shame it makes my name now seem silly… I guess it does show how much of a newbie I am at all of this!
