become the overseer in fallout: shelter

If you were anxiously waiting for the E3 Bethesda press conference this year for Fallout 4 news, then you were not disappointed. Not only did Bethesda unveil tons upon tons of news, plus a few minutes of gameplay and concept art, but they also unveiled Fallout: Shelter, an IOS only mobile game (FREE) in which you are the overseer and you must built up your vault by assigning jobs and managing resources.

As overseer your job is to make your vault thrive, by increasing its population and keeping all the vault dwellers hap . . .

humble bundle pc and android 11

The Humble Bundle PC and Android 11 has just hit the interwebs, and I am surprisingly excited. If you read the previous post about the Humble Bundle Indie Bundle then you will know that I am a noob in the HumbleBundle department. And for those that are also noobs, the Humble Bundle is a group of games sold at a "name your own price" value with a minimum of 1$. By giving the minimum you will receive a subset of the bundles games all DRM free and also accessible on Steam and ready for your playing pleasure. If you donate a few bucks more, passing the average donation, you will . . .

humble indie bundle 12

I've been hearing alot about Humble Indie Bundle from friends for a while so I decided to check it out. I'm not a huge fan of Indie games in general, but it seems that as of late, I'm not really a fan of non-indie games anymore either, so this deal comes at a perfect time for me to try out new things. For those new to the Humble Bundle, it is essentially a group of Indie games at a ridiculous set your own price price, who's proceeds go to charity and/or the developer split. They usually run for a set time frame, usually about two weeks. You can pay as much as you want for the games, and if you pay more than the average donated, . . .

"console wars" brings back retro memories: review

Console Wars is an entertaining and very thorough look at one of the greatest gaming rivalries of all time. Every console generation we see it rear it's head. Two companies going head to head in a bid to win over the holiday season with new awesome ways to procrastinate. Back in the day you were either a Nintendo guy or a Sega guy. I was a Sega guy. It just looked sleeker and the games were a bit faster and a tad more colorful. And you got one of the awesomest games ever made right off the bat. Of course, now thinking back on it I missed out on games like Super Mario RPG, Killer Instinct, The Legend of Zelda series and Final Fantasy games. That's..alot of games thinking . . .

the best parts of e3 this year

Maybe it's just me, but E3 left me a tad bit disappointed this year. There were a few highlights of course, but just nothing with a large WOW factor. Back in the day e3 was the one time a year developers had to show off what they've been spending sleepless nights on for the past year. The Kinect, PS Move, other stuff. It seemed a bit like this year was just for longer trailers and older games coming to new consoles. But regardless, there was some pretty cool content to drool over, particularly from Nintendo this year.

Nintendo

Nintendo unveiled some pretty big things this year. Not just game-wise, but hardware too. Standing out the mos . . .

why i'm going back to old skool video games

The first console I ever played as a kid was the Atari "something or other", and it was not fun..like by alot. I was just a kid, but I knew that couldn't possibly be any fun for anyone. Lucky for me it was not mine, just a neighbor whom I would frequent when bored. But I was a huge fan of those handheld Tiger handhelds and other off brand game systems from the late 80's and early 90's. I played until the highest possible score on those devices, and . . .

this is the best time for mobile games and the worst

The Best Of Times

I can now play GTA: San Andreas on my tablet and or my phone. A decade ago, this was the most technologically advanced thing I remember seeing. This massive interactive open world where you could do pretty much whatever you wanted now runs..on my phone. Busting caps with CJ and the Grove Street Family has never been so fun. I currently carry a 2gh, 32gb storage, 2gb RAM phone and its pretty damn awesome. The power is there to create high res, immersive (why is Chrome telling me that's misspelled -_- ), multiplayer games for mobile . . .

"a dark room" text game review
a dark room

"A Dark Room" is text only game made by doublespeak games written in Javascript. It's a single player adventure/RPG type of game reminiscent of games back before I was born, so I can't exactly say when. But a long time ago for sure. I played this game to completion while waiting for my code to "compile" at my last job, and this is what I thought. No spoilers. I will try my hardest, because it definitely needs to be experienced.

The Story

Because every good game needs one. Except in this ca . . .
