Gears of War 2 matchmaking sucks

I guess the title can’t be much clearer than it is: The matchmaking system of Gears of War 2 sucks.

Because I’m totally out of inspiration, I’ll just post some content that’s pretty site related from my other blog, Internet Spotter. It’s a monthly topic called “Time Wasters of the month” and it consists of one open source game, one flash game, one downloadable free game, one browser based game and one paid game, so that means that there are 4 free games and one paid game in each post.

Top 10 games that have changed my opinion about the Wii

About one and a half year ago, the Wii arrived in stores. It promised a whole new way of controlling your games, slightly better graphics than on the GameCube and even online options, making it a worthy “next-gen” console. Being a Nintendo fanboy, I believed this, and bought the console a few days after its release. Nearly a year after that event, I bought an Xbox 360. The reason why I did that is simple: the Wii is not what I expected it to be; it disappointed me. So, why isn’t the Wii what I expected it to be? (read more…)

This version of Zelda looks completely different from the other versions. It’s very toony and the main character doesn’t really look like the Link we know. He wears a Hawaii shirt at the start, but you get the well known green bug suit quite quick. (read more…)
