Kings Vs. Devils for the Stanley Cup!

Posted in Sports with tags , , , , , , on 30/05/2012 by arthur1977

The Stanley Cup finals start tonight between the LA Kings and the New Jersey Devils.

I think these teams are well match and I am looking forward to this series. Personally I am cheering for the Kings, I am a big fan of Mike Richards and hated how he got treated after the trade in Philadelphia.

In the end I hope all the games are close and the Kings win at home in 6 games. I am leaning towards Quick as the Conn Smythe winner after the amazing run he had this playoff.

Please leave a comment and let me know who you think will win.

Let the games begin!



The calming power of God of War?

Posted in PS3 with tags , , , on 20/05/2012 by arthur1977

Over the last few weeks I have been working extended hours while the project I am on nears completion. Last week was the worst hitting 57.5 hours on site and with the tight time line and groups not cooperating with one another I was in a foul mood Friday night.

I needed to get some air after I got home so I took a spin to our local Best Buy to buy a new controller. There was a sale on for the Ultimate Combo Pack so I grabbed the one with the 2 God of War games and the red controller.

The next day my Wife was nice and gave me some down time by going to her parents house with our Little Princess for the afternoon.

After completing my todo list I sat down for some tension relief. I put in the God of War: Origins Collection and selected Chains of Olympus. My experience playing GoW is minimal having only played the demo for GoW 3 so the combat system was new and interesting.


I played for about 2 hours and really enjoyed it. There is something to the thought of getting you pent up frustrations out through mindlessly brutalizing enemies in video games. After my gaming secession I felt better and realized I was letting things get to me at work and just needed to take a step back and relax. Releasing my frustration out through Kratos allowed me to calm down and think straight.

Just a few more weeks until the project I am working on is complete, let’s hope I don’t need any more of these stress relief secessions!

Thanks for letting me rant, I hope everyone has a great week.


Addicted again to Dungeon Raid

Posted in Games with tags , , on 11/05/2012 by arthur1977

No matter how many different iPhone game I try I keep coming back to Dungeon Raid. Is fills my game craving need during my short breaks for 5 to 10 minute playing sessions.

After playing all the classes I enjoy playing the rogue the most, with my favorite skills being enchant and treasure chamber. Anyone have some suggestions of similar games that I should try?
