Heavy Rain

I should probably start out by saying Quantic Dream, developers of Heavy Rain, should be commended for trying something new and innovative. Sadly their efforts comes up short. I wanted […]

flOw

A few days ago Sony decided to make flOw available for FREE on PSN. My initial reaction was to hate the control scheme but after a few minutes of getting […]

HALO Legends

A collection of seven short animated films set int he HALO universe Origins A great recap of the Halo Universe for noobs. Stylistically though the animation felt a bit weak […]

It Lives

The replacement power supply I ordered online was delivered today and after ten minutes of surgery my XBOX LIVES! Who would have thought a power surge almost claimed a good […]

XBOX Surgery

Not one to take loss well I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands and repair the XBOX. With a little help from an online tutorial, cracking open the […]

XBOX R.I.P.

For an hour I plugged and unplugged the power cord into different wall sockets. Pushed the power and eject buttons hoping for any sign of life. Regrettably it never came […]

God of War

After years of neglect I finally decided to try God of War. So far I’m unimpressed. It’s your standard 3rd person action game. Released around the same time as Ninja […]

XboxTweet

Unlocking an achievement on my 360 makes my heart smile. And the thought of sharing this via twitter has been a geek wet dream of mine for quite some time. […]

Last.fm

I admit to loving Pandora but with Microsoft releasing an Xbox 360 version of Last.fm I may have to make room in my heart for both. Slick and intuitive design […]

Modern Warfare 2

After a tiny adjustment period I can officially say MW2 is redonkulous. MW2 is not a revolutinary step forward in the first person genre but more a refinement of the […]

Modern Warfare 2 Midnight Madness

After months of anticipation it’s almost here. The next chapter in Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty franchise . With phenomenal single player akin to a Jerry Bruckheimer-esque Hollywood blockbuster and […]

I finally got around to playing Shadow Complex, a revamped old-school side-scrolling action game. The single-player story line is based on the best-selling novel, Empire, by Orson Scott Card. So […]

I’ve been playing Ninja Gaiden 2 (one of the hardest video games ever created) and  come to the conclusion that I’m really sick.  Video games are suppose to be a […]

PlayStation Network

Streaming

Part of the coolness factor with owning an Xbox 360 and PS3 are the media capabilities they posses. Both can stream media from any PC running  the Windows operating system […]

Deep Green

The past few months I’ve wanted to get back into chess, an extremely challenging and sexy game but keep running into a few problems. It requires two people to play. […]
