So Patch and I purchased Catherine for Xbox 360 yesterday and spent a good 5 hours playing(on hard mode). After 5 hours we only reached level 2 and were mentally exhausted. However, I am not saying this is a negative as it called for something that games in the past few years have been lacking, which would be skill , brainpower and teamwork with friends. Its the type of game you think about how to beat when your sitting down at the dinner table and just want to go back and beat it. (more…)
Shmup is short for “shoot ’em up,” a game genre that started in the arcades with Space Invaders and still has a cult following with modern titles like Death Smiles 2 X for Xbox 360 (see the picture to the left if you’re still unsure what a shmup is). If you’re even slightly interested in this genre, I highly recommend watching “Japon: Histoire Du Shooting Game” (a shmup documentary). It’ll introduce you to some great games that are sure to inspire you to start playing shmups seriously. (more…)
Google fast flip is an experimental idea for viewing popular news articles. A lot of these websites exist such as Digg or Reddit, however I like the new UI ideas Google has.

Once you click on one of the articles you choose you can scroll fast between them using the left and right arrows on the keyboard. Try it out, I find it to be great to catch up on news.

Apple, Inc. (AAPL) has struggled to compete with Android. Its newest phone is over a year old, and looks badly dated compared to the latest slick Android hardware. And it’s being outsold over two-to-one by Android globally, according to market researchers. But Apple has a secret weapon — litigation.
So far on my first day of using Google+ , I’ve noticed the pluses (no pun intended) and minuses. I see where they are copying age old social networking ideas and creating some new ones of their own. I truly think this is the first project by Google that brings all of their services together. It brings Picasa, Gmail, messenger, maps and a search engine into one. It also integrates with your android device so seamlessly I was shocked. Here are my pros and cons
1) Set up is Fast & easy. In total probably took 5 minutes to import my photos already in Picasa , make a profile and even set it up on my phone. (more…)
This video showcases some of the video game scene in Singapore as well as some scenery of the city-state. Mike Ross and Gootecks tour the local arcades, LAN Centers & even visit the Gamespot Singapore Tournament. Why do I live in the US again?
I was lucky enough to travel to Paris for my wedding anniversary. Naturally, the first thing I did was check if there were any arcades in the area. With the help of the dedicated owner of Arcade Otaku’s IRC chat, I was able to get the low-down on the arcades of Paris. To my surprise there are actually two: La Tete Dans Les Nuages (LTDN) and Arcade Street. (more…)
