SCREENSHOT: Lollipop Chainsaw

One of my favorite things to do in video games is take screenshots. I enjoy capturing the exact moment when something happens in the game that looks completely bad ass. Since I haven't posted in this blog in a long time, I've decided to start back with something simple: posting screenshots.

The above screenshot is from Lollipop Chainsaw from the Xbox 360.

2013: The Year of Funerals

I started this blog because I wanted a place to talk about video games. I've never been much for forums, as I have a tendency to get into arguments with other people. So Heavy Attack became the place I could say whatever I wanted to about whatever I wanted, without issue or concern. I had hoped to become better at writing, and maybe even turn Heavy Attack into a full blown website one day. Unfortunately life did what it always does, and threw one giant wrench into the gears.

In 2013, I attended more funerals than I ever imagined I would in five years, let alone in one. Funnily enough, it all actually started on Christmas Eve of 2012. My half-sister's father had been suffering from pancreatic cancer for the last year, and on Christmas Eve his heart gave out. This made Christmas a pretty tragic time for us. Even if he wasn't my father, she was still my sister, and I felt for her. If I'd only known the downhill journey that we were going to take the following year, I'd have bundled up under the blankets, and waited for 2014 to get here.

Don't Lose Progress In Dead Space 3

Some people have been complaining about losing progress in Dead Space 3. I believe the likely culprit is a misleading save system that saves inventory separately from progress, but uses the same icon for both. This is just a quick little warning video showing you the slight difference between the two so you won't, in fact, lose any progress.

It's Strange What a Difference Loading Times Make...

In my social circles, I am notorious for my nerd rage. In fact, there are a few people who downright refuse to play any multiplayer games with me because of my tendency towards cursing, screaming, and blaming the game's mechanics for every single death. I know why I'm like this in multiplayer, I'm a very competitive person who hates to lose. I don't like the idea that anyone is better than me, and when someone gets the better of me, I get angry about it.

Unfortunately, I also behave this way in a lot of single player games, and lately I've been pondering why that is. I can't really blame my competitive nature, because I'm going to beat the game eventually no matter how many times I die. So why is it that dying in some games will send me into a blind rage? I’m blaming the load times.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Easy Experience & Sneak Skill

This is a quick and easy way to level your Sneak ability in Skyrim using the ole rubber band trick from Oblivion. I did not come up with this, I just found a good spot at The Bannered Mare to do it. This is also an effective way to gain levels even if you don't intend to use the sneak ability.
