Industry Reflection: Project Consumer Consumption     by Dark Watcher (13-Jul-16)

Greetings game console compatriots. Ole DW here with your “Industry Reflection.” We are mid-year into 2016, and the industry is abuzz with rumors and news regarding Nintendo’s project, code-named “NX,” Sony’s project, code-named “NEO,” and, Microsoft’s project code-named “Scorpio.” While Nintendo remains tight lipped (as usual) on their project, the device will of course be new (and much needed) console … Read more

Mad Catz M.O.J.O – Hands on Review     by Dark Watcher (23-Dec-15)

The android micro-console market seemed to go out of control with so many competitors trying to capture some of the success following the OUYA. The result was a flood of similar devices with mobile cellular components and an Android operating system. The Dark Watcher took advantage of the situation, and purchased a Mad Catz M.O.J.O for a bargain. Now before … Read more

Fond Memories of Dreamcast     by Dark Watcher (10-Sep-14)

EA chief operating officer Peter Moore sent out a series of messages on Twitter reminiscing on the Sega Dreamcast. It stirred within us our own memories. Has it really been 15 years!? When you consider yourself a console historian, and find yourself excited about every video game console ever developed, it is hard not to play favorites… We admit, the … Read more

Infinity Blade: Awakening     by Dark Watcher (18-Jun-14)

Ole DW picked up this short story not realizing at first that it was associated with the Apple IOS videogame series of the same name. We just saw it was a nice short book by one of our favoured authors Brandon Sanderson. We enjoyed the the development of the character Siris, and his interactions with the character Isaline. We appreciated … Read more

Darksiders: The Abomination Vault     by Dark Watcher (18-Jun-14)

It would appear that someone had taken the time to publish an official novel based on the Darksiders game series. The cover of course features the horsemen Death and War. How could we not pick this book up? The storyline takes place ages before the events of Darksiders and Darksider’s II. This was actually a good book. The only concern … Read more

Tribute to a Furry Gaming Buddy     by Marriott_Guy (23-Dec-13)

On October 15, 2013, my feline partner of over twenty years sadly passed away.  Always loyal, she was constantly by my side during gaming sessions or whatever else I happened to be working on.  The following is a tribute to my cherished companion Kramer.  Thank you for the memories and your unconditional love given to me.  

Hyperkin SupaBoy 2.0: Impressions     by Tan (19-Feb-13)

Nearly two months ago I bought one of these on impulse from a local shop. While my handheld gaming interest these days is nearly non-existent with the exception of the occasional tablet session, the idea of playing SNES cartridges wherever, whenever was too much of a temptation to pass up. As luck would have it, my procrastination of about a … Read more

Review: Razer DeathAdder 3.5G Left-Handed     by Tan (21-Nov-12)

Admittedly, I’m rather late to the whole high performance mouse scene. For years I sustained my gaming habits with mostly standard, off the shelf mice. Occasionally I’d venture into new ground with a performance oriented design, optical trackball or whatever the latest innovation was at the time. I dabbled in the Logitech MX series, tried a “couch mouse”, Microsoft’s Bluetrack … Read more

Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (360)     by Tan (25-Oct-12)

This is a hard game to review because I both love it and find some parts of it really crappy at the same time. On the one hand, you have a sprawling open world that’s ripe with history and a life of its own. On the other, you feel like a disjointed character, never taken seriously by the NPCs you … Read more
