Games and Gaming – Old School Gamer vs. New Gamers
* I am an old school video game player
I have fond memories of playing on the Apple IIe at school then the Amiga 500 computer (Commodore). Eventually I got a Compaq PC to play Age of Empires and then the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
* My kids are new school players
They grew up with consoles – mine, not theirs 🙂 – and gaming apps on tablets. I find it curious how they spend hours watching others play games on YouTube instead of doing it themselves.
* So what is Woodward Games about?
This channel is about curious things we come across, both old school and new that we’d like to share with the world.
Games We Play
Dungeons & Dragons
Rob W. (the old school gamer) used to play Dungeons & Dragons as a teenager. Yes, we are talking about back in the 80s with the iconic Second Edition boxed sets.
A generation later and now Rob W. is the Dungeon Master taking his family on many adventures in the fascinating world of D&D.
Time to roll some dice…
Blackout Rugby is an online Sport Management Game by Blackout Games. You are in charge of a rugby team and have to manage your players, set game tactics to win your league and eventually try and dominate the rugby world.
Rob W. has been playing Blackout Rugby since 2007 when the classic version was in Beta. Now a new updated version of this game has come out (December 2019) and again Rob is also out to show his skills, or lack of them, in this new world!
Rob W. often does a lot of live streaming of Blackout Rugby on YouTube where he watches live games as they happen and chats with the managers of other Blackout Rugby clubs.
Age of Empires
Rob W. has had so many enjoyable memories playing Age of Empires 1, 2 and 3 that as soon as Age of Empires II – The Definite Edition became a part of the Xbox Game Pass for PC, he downloaded it immediately and began conquering the world.
Now the rest of the family are discovering this classic Medieval strategy game.
I bet you can still hear the sound of that horn in your head as you are advised that someone is attacking you. Yeah, you know the one.
I played D&D many years ago Many many years ago I used to play Dungeons and Dragons, commonly known as D&D. When I say many years ago, it probably means long before most readers here were even born... it was the 80s. (Remember, I'm the old-school side of...
XBOX GRE3N Carpet Experience 2019 - Auckland, New Zealand Today we went to the XBOX GRE3N Carpet Experience here in Auckland, New Zealand. This exclusive event included watching the official XBOX E3 announcement live on a big screen (it was at a local cinema), a draw...
Something I noticed when I recorded a couple of unboxings for YouTube is that the audio sounded terrible. It was distant and with a slight echo or hollow sound. Since I'm a bit of a perfectionist and want my videos to be the best ones possible, I knew I had to invest...

Today is launch day of the Xbox One Exclusive ... Forza Horizon 4. I was after a decent racing game for my console and this one does not disappoint. The graphs are AMAZING... no seriously, more than amazing. This game was designed exclusively for the Xbox One and...
FIFA 19 was released worldwide today for those that have the Champions Edition (everyone else gets to play it in 3 more days) which is the version I got. Since I'm in New Zealand and our timezone is ahead of everyone else's, we get to play most new releases before...
