Welcome to the world of Minecraft: Hunger Games
Lately I have noticed several YouTube channels dedicated to MINECRAFT game play. But these are no ordinary build and mine game play vids. These are survival style, grab what you can, run, evade and fight to be the last person standing. There are several websites and servers devoted to this new trend in playing this 3d block cube game. I have played several times and its great. You get the adrenaline rush and fun of C.O.D. without the pretend military know it all 15 year olds who talk crap and pull various forms of annoying douchery.
It’s Here ……
All that Nerdy Stuff finally received its console for backing the OUYA Project on Kickstarter.com. We have long anticipated the OUYA arrival since March 28th 2013 when OUYA announced shipping had begun with early backers receiving the first units. OUYA is manufactured in Hong Kong, China and is shipped directly from the manufacturer to the early kickstarter backers. Head on past the break for the essential details, and look for our impressions throughout the week!
NOKIA Unveils the Lumia 820 and 920, Bitch-slaps iPhone Specs
Who will offer the Flagship 920, or the mid model 820?
These phones put most other smart phones to shame and make the iPhone look like a prehistoric brick.
The Android OS has an uncertain future , between Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung, with more rumored to be on the way against other Android phone manufacturers. This could ultimately lead to a show down between Apple and Google, not in the marketplace where such a battle belongs, but in the courtroom. I think ultimately Apple will lose, at least on some of the more idiotic patents, but it will definitely slow down if not cripple the fast-moving innovation of the Android OS. It will be interesting in the meantime to see who decides to offer Nokia’s latest phones. T-Mobile? AT&T? Verizon? Sprint? No definitive news has arrived yet, except that Sprint appears, as usual, to be scratching their collective balls rather than making any decisive moves. Follow me on past the break for more discussion of Microsoft and Nokia’s new flagship!
Mass Effect 3 on Xbox 360 and PS3 was released on Tuesday 06 March 2012 with much fanfair. I eagerly waited in line at my local GameStop for the midnight release of this much anticipated 3rd part of the Mass Effect Story. (***SPOILER ALERT***) The truth is the game was a disappointment straight off. I found that all my decisions and pains taking replays of Mass Effect 1 and 2 to get my ending just the way I wanted it didn’t mean shit! While parts of the story are definitely good, the game play is nothing what I expected from all the EA hype. The Xbox 360 voice commands with Kinect were definitely a redeeming feature, but the freshness and length of the mission was sorely lacking. I found myself bored by repetitive missions that at times seemed to have eerie similarities to Mass Effect 2.
Xbox 360 Controllers set to release May 15th 2012
3 new Xbox 360 Controllers release tomorrow, bringing with them a sparkle and luster that matte controllers just can’t compete with. These contollers feature the Transforming D-pad, previously released with the silver and black controller. One of these controllers will cost you $54.99. I personally Like the Red. Thoughts?
