  • Infamous Photos

    I seriously love the PS4’s ability to snap photos at any time. It’s a godsend to have it capture footage or just a quick screenshot whenever I need to. Here are some of my favorites I’ve taken while playing Infamous: Second Son.

  • My so called namesake game

    The joke was made time and time again. Mostly by my friends in the gaming industry. Or at least, the question was given more times than I could count. “Hey, played that game yet?” Panzer Dragoon Orta. And no, I haven’t played it. I’ve never owned an Xbox. Until recently. Hello there, namesake. Used, on […]

  • Mass Effect Movie, or Shepard should be a woman

    Every tie some video game has been optioned off for a movie, there is a flurry of activity among the video game community- one of either hope or pessimism (currently, the latter is being used more often than not) for the project. Unfortunately, the film projects have one of two results- either the film languishes […]

  • Gaming Avatars

    With the latest generation of video games, the ability to create virtual avatars have become commonplace. The Xbox 360 has its avatars. The Wii has its Miis. And the PS3… well, it has its Home Avatars (that’s almost a second thought behind the first two). All of these avatar creation systems have the same damn […]

  • E3 2011

    Every year, I have looked forward to E3- not to the show itself, but to meet with friends who come in to the city for the show and hang out with them- it’s been the tradition for close to four years now. But this year- I got the chance to go to the show itself, […]

  • PS3 in it’s coffin.

    The coffin for the PS3 finally arrived. It’s ready to be shipped and taken to Sony. Hope to see you soon, big girl. The Wii is starting to get old. Posted via email from Daniel’s posterous

  • Thank you, Joystiq Podcast Appreciation Group

    I don’t even know how to start this apart from these words: Thank you, Joystiq Podcast Appreciation Group. Thank you for your generosity. A little background: my Playstation 3 died around june/july of this year. From what I can tell, the temperature sensor is conked out. The system is completely and utterly dead. It’s a […]

  • Rest in Peace, Dreamcast

    Yesterday was the date, ten years prior, that the last Sega video game console was released. 9/9/99 was the date the Dreamcast came into the world and revolutionized video games. i wrote a little story about my very first memory of my Dreamcast over at Wing It’s thinking, baby.

  • little big planet and my childhood.

    The title above can not be any more succinct- i love little big planet for bringing back my childhood. Sounds completely mundane out of the amounts of praise to which the Playstation 3 exclusive game has been receiving (or lack therof, in certain places), but it’s certain levels in the midpart of the story mode […]

  • schoools out, for the wiintterrrrr

    Thank god, school’s done. Well, until February, that is. I’m currently relaxing at a freind’s house, letting him and his brother sate their addiction to various shooters and fighting games on my PS3, which I had left at their house in order for me to concentrate on my studies and finals . I swear, Rainbow […]
