Pocket PC revealed – Razer Switchblade

Awesome music “tool”

Alright, so I found this little gem over the weekend and it honestly has kept me entertained for hours.  It’s not really a “game” per se, but more of an interactive music creation tool.  So it starts out as just a grid of gray squares.  Click on a square to “activate” it.  An invisible, vertical line passes through the page “playing” each note (square) as ...

Check out this amazing Metroidvania flash game, KOLM!

So if you guys are like me, you love “Metroidvania” style games.  For those of you who don’t know what that means, its a game with an open world structure with various types of obstacles that require certain abilities to bypass, often requiring you to progress and explore to discover where you can and can’t go yet.  I love this style of gameplay, the perfect blend of explor...

Live stream + game give away!

Happy holidays!  On my time off I decided I would do a little stream.  I’ve recently gotten back into playing Sengoku Basara (I love me some good hack and slash games) and it’s fairly actiony so I figured why not.  Later on if the stream is still going I might put up some Monster Hunter Portable 3rd if I can get my friend on or maybe even some Silent Hill:  Shattered Memories if I̵...

Check out this quick little clip from a comedy show by Dara O Briain.  I think as gamers we can all relate to something from this routine.  Truly hilarious. Warning: Language

Live Stream – random games

I trust that all of you fine folks who live in America had a good Thanksgiving.  I still have family over and am entertaining a younger cousin of mine.  Will likely switch games up every now and then.  Currently it’s Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Amnesia: Dark Descent – hilarity

Alright, for those of you who don’t know, Amnesia: Dark Descent is a scary game for the PC.  A VERY scary game.  You are tasked with traversing a game where as you turn a corner in this dilapidated and run down house you might notice some otherworldly creature running just out of sight.  Unsure what to do, you might either try to A) follow it to see what it was so you know to avoid it in the...

Streaming it again today, should be a bit more eventful now that I’m past the opening hours of the game .  Enough talk, enjoy!

Kinect Joy Ride – pinnacle of motion gaming?

With the release of Sony’s and Microsoft’s motion peripherals there seems to be a bit of a re-ignition of the console wars in the form of “which motion control is better?”.  Some would say the Wii because it did motion control first so…therefor it’s better?  Don’t get the reasoning there.  Some would say the Move because it takes the best of both worlds, i...
