About Catgamer

All I can say is that I’m a compulsive cynic, talker, reader, self-confessed writer and gamer. Until recently, one of the 1% of the Western population without a Facebook (now there’s 0.99% of them. Sorry, guys.) - follow me there shall you feel the urge. Because I always found it difficult to stay serious for a period longer than 10 minutes, my columns will concern games, but not only that, and there will be plenty of occasions to go offtopic – which is another thing I love to do. Join me in meowing about games.

Here are my most recent posts

Call of Duty: Black Ops Sets a New Record

Will, I’ve got a haunting feeling that our masks are being laughed at.

Much could be anticipated after one of the most palpitation-inducing, long-winded advertising campaign of the lately released Call of Duty: Black Ops, but the numbers exceeded any rational expectation. A smashing estimate of 5.6 million copies sold in the first . . . → Read More: Call of Duty: Black Ops Sets a New Record

The Good, The Bad and The Italian – Mafia II PC Review

Darkman_Vito_Joe_Henry_Mafia_2

The feel of Mafia II is that of a more uplifting, Hollywood-style Godfather with Elvis Presley for a soundtrack and GTA San Andreas as the obvious main inspiration.

Entertain it will, but don’t . . . → Read More: The Good, The Bad and The Italian – Mafia II PC Review

Motley Crew’s hairspray days were definitely over.

I feel a bit shattered. Which is better than feeling my life is over, a state I was profoundly submerged in a few days ago as I realised these news. Looking to pre-order my own copy of Brotherhood, I noticed something was not quite . . . → Read More: Release of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Delayed For PC

5 Reasons Why: Monopoly is Bad Stuff

the-faces-of-capitalism1

I don’t have solicitors. I don’t even have a solicitor. But in the frequent cases when companies were a bit too eager to dig into my pocket anew, the “let me consult my solicitor” argument works wonders – especially when the employees know they are asking for something certainly necessary or not certainly legal. Then . . . → Read More: 5 Reasons Why: Monopoly is Bad Stuff

STEAM(NOT NECCESARILY ALWAYS)WORKS: Why I’m not buying

up_steam_cloud

There were games like Resident Evil 4 for PC which needed a patch and updates just to come close to running, a gem of an example of what happens when the development team works hard for the first 6 months, and then, for the rest of their funds, orders pizza everyday for the rest of . . . → Read More: STEAM(NOT NECCESARILY ALWAYS)WORKS: Why I’m not buying

The Geek Revival: Why I Love Lara

Lara_Croft_Tomb_Raider_Underworld_Wallpaper_03

Some radical feminists accused miss Lara of being a yet another walking proof of deeply rooted sexism in our (pop)culture – a woman oozing sex appeal, apparently strong but of course looked at mostly due to her incredible physique and looks. To those feminists, I therefore announce: doing acrobatics fifty feet in the air with an MK assault rifle, with a large behind is an inconvenience, to say the least.
