What Killed My Social Life Last Year – 2013 Gaming In Review

This picture actually does a better job of conveying “Gaming circa 2009”, but whatever.

Greetings Evil Geek Gamers or EGGs, if you’re up for a cool sounding acronym.  When will the EGGs hatch? Soon. What will the EGGs hatch? Terror, bad cholesterol, and world domination! 2013 has certainly been a year in which gaming has taken place.  That’s to say that it’s not been unbearably horrible, but in my opinion it hasn’t been stellar either.  Sure we’ve had some great games and even one that could be considered a masterpiece of storytelling, but we’ve had our fair share of turds hit the market this year and even some games that had great expectations, but managed to be only so-so in their final execution.  Let’s take a look at some of the stuff that I thought worked, some that outright sucked, and some that were just meh.

Villain Spotlight: Andrew Ryan

No Gods or Kings…Only Villains. Welcome back everyone to another edition of your favorite thing to see on Fridays….The Villain Spotlight! It’s been a pretty strange week in the house of Harkness. Between seeing Rob Zombie  amongst a cavalcade of heat and metal, late night talks about Frank Drebin and finally killing the troll that resides in my basement, I have been nothing less than tuckered out. However, that will not stop me from bringing you what you love, and what you love are Villains, and boys and girls, I have a double dose for you today.

Either way it’s up to you. However, if you have played it, then good on you as it is amazing, and spawned two amazing sequels which you should also play as well. This is your last chance though, and if you are opposed to reading a huge revelation, then turn away now, lest yee be disappointed ( C-Mart, you know you read that in the Kevin Sorbo voice haha). Ok, now that you have all had your chance, let’s get on with this thing.
