Everything about computer and video gaming goes here!

The difficult I’ll do right now

Here is a clip that I’ve been loving for quite a few months now. When Fallout 3 hit at the end of October, I was completely hypnotized by the licensed tracks that your character can listen to being broadcast from the heart of the DC Wasteland, relayed through a radio antenna at the top of […]

Kim Swift and Eric Wolpaw?! OMG! WTF? ROPLAIBC?!!?!

My day at work just got awesome. I know that seems implausible, but while I was diligently looking busy, trying not to fall asleep, and wishing I was cool, I came across a link to an interview at Gamasutra with Valve’s Kim Swift and Eric Wolpaw.

Now, witness another ingenious creation: turning the Wiimote and infrared LED pens (nice touch using standard-issue Bic casings) […]

Haha!!! “M” and “A”! What a clever way to frame up a computer gaming story you “CB”

So, anyway, if you read the computer gaming blogs and follow the gaming industry, then you know that Electronic Arts bid something like $40 trillion (that’s 800,000,000 rupees, Legend of Zelda fans) for Take-Two, those fine gentlefolks behind Grand Theft Auto, and publishers of a fun little ditty called BioShock—a game that I really really […]
