  • On PewDiePie’s $7m…

    The problem here isn’t the money this young man is making with his videos… the problem is that there are¬†37 million souls watching him playing games instead of spending that time playing games themselves, which to me makes no sense at all. It might be a sign that I’m getting old, but I rather play […]

  • Diggin’ In The Carts

    If you’re an old school gamer like me, you’ll know that one of the key aspects of retro gaming is the music. When remembering a really good game from the good old days, one of the first things that came up is the game’s theme, that memorable melody that’s carved into our brains. Red Bull […]

  • Keep Calm and Konami Code

    Try it… you’ll never know when it might work ūüėČ

  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon – The Movie

    This mock trailer for a 80’s style sci-fi movie is pure awesomeness! Awesome marketing!

  • Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

    This is sooooo 80’s! Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is set to be released in May for PS3, X360 and PC as an whole game, as you don’t need the original Far Cry 3 to play it. The awesome sound track is by Powerglove and it’s an entire trip to the 80’s electronica. You can […]

  • Farewell LucasArts

    It’s a sad day for us gamers in their 30’s and 40’s. Today Disney announced that it’s closing LucasArts. The famous game studio that was part of LucasFilm, and included in the package that George Lucas sold to Disney, is being closed down after 31 years. I’m 34. I grew up with LucasFilm Games (that […]

  • Castle Grayskull

    If I could choose a single image to define my childhood, it would be this awesome painting by Rudy Obrero made for the Masters of the Universe Castle Grayskull box artwork… simply amazing stuff.

  • Big things have small beginnings

    The title of this post is one of the most significant lines of David, one of the main characters in Prometheus and it’s perhaps the best way to describe Ridley Scott’s latest sci-fi movie. First, let me get just one thing out-of-the-way. Prometheus is a great movie, one of the best sci-fi movies of the […]

  • Journey

    Journey is the latest title from the makers of Flower and Flow, ThatGameCompany, published by Sony for the PS3. It’s hard to review Journey without going into spoilers, but I’ll try.¬†I won’t go on detail about the gameplay, the story or even the traditional review points that game reviews usually feature. I won’t tell you […]

  • Star Wars Documentaries

    I’m a Star Wars fan, angry but still a fan. I come to dislike the way that George Lucas prostitutes the saga with the low quality cartoons and¬†lousy¬†merchandizing… In September the six movies will come out on Bluray and I’ll probably buy them, but I stopped collecting figures and other items from Star Wars. Unfortunately, […]
