Paging Father Time     by Marriott_Guy (31-Jan-12)

This past weekend my brother and I had our quarterly Gaming Night.  His perk for being the host was selecting the main game for the evening.  To my dismay, an online battle with Modern Warfare 3 was his choice. I had been down this road before with him in another Call of Duty installment.  Let me tell you – it … Read more


The Diversity of Gamer Breeds     by Marriott_Guy (23-Feb-10)

The level of enjoyment of any multi-player gaming experience is heavily dependant upon your fellow gamers.  Whether it be teaming with a bud in a co-op couch game of Contra or joining an online bout with hundreds of unnamed souls in Worlds of Warcraft, it still boils down to the same – are the people you are interacting with cool? … Read more


The Online Gaming Leveler     by Marriott_Guy (16-Feb-10)

My little brother (age 35) has been pestering me for months to get with the times and pick up a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.  I was extremely hesitant – getting beat on like a piñata by a group of ‘any’ year olds is not my idea of a fun time.  He promised that I could ease … Read more


Ready, Set, Game!!!     by Marriott_Guy (19-Oct-09)

I don’t know about you, but I tend to be rather ritualistic when preparing for a serious gaming session.  Just like setting the table for dinner, everything has to be set just so prior to my indulgence.  Preparation is paramount in order to fully enjoy my upcoming virtual experience.  Yes, I admit that my OCD tendencies might have some bearing … Read more

The following lists a few of my favorites. During a Storm Who doesn’t love firing … Read more


Madden Nation – Truly Reflective?     by Marriott_Guy (26-Feb-09)

I was surfing the tube the other evening and happened across an episode of Madden Nation.   Though not particularly foreign to me, I can’t fully admit that I had ever sat through any given episode in this series for more than five consecutive minutes.  Television offerings were extremely weak that night – Clean House Comes Clean did have its appeal, … Read more


Handheld Systems – “I don’t get it”     by Marriott_Guy (13-Feb-09)

With my console collection pretty much fleshed out I have decided to take the plunge into collecting handheld systems. This is an area within the video gaming field that I have totally neglected, almost to the point of refusing to recognize their existence. I have never understood the attraction to this method of gaming. Some of my peers might even … Read more

And so the new year arrives, and it already brings about change. It also is the time for new resolutions. 2009 marks changes for the Dark Watcher. Ole DW will be trying their hand at marriage, but preparations for this event will be taxing. Regardless, we made a new years resolution to complete the many videogames that have been piling … Read more


Goal of a Webmaster     by Marriott_Guy (21-Dec-08)

This afternoon I experienced the rare occasion where my appointment with the local physician started promptly and ended earlier than expected.  This extra free time that has been afforded to me was a pleasant surprise to be honest – professional demands on me have been intense as of late.  With this unexpected windfall, I brew up a steaming hot pot … Read more


A Formal BLOG Introduction     by Dark Watcher (03-Sep-08)

It’s been a few weeks now since Marriott_Guy lured us out of our cave using Reese’s peanut butter cups, and promises of console history glory. So now that we are settled in we wanted to take the opportunity to do a formal introduction… Ahem… Greetings! We are Dark Watcher. Some know us as “He who casts shadows in darkness”. We … Read more
