Review: iPad 2

apple-ipad2

On March 11, 2011 Apple released the iPad 2 to the world.  This unit is the first revision of the original iPad device that came out less than a year before the update.  Just how good is the iPad 2?  Read on to find out….

The answer to my question is…it’s…good.  Only good, not great, not amazing.  Before all the Apple fanboys get upset with me let me just explain why it’s just good.

Preview: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

feature-Kingdoms-of-Amalur

At PAX East the public was treated to a world premier demo of Kingdoms of Amalur:  Reckoning.  For the rest of this article I’m going to just refer to this game as Reckoning as that is what the developers of the game are referring it as anyways.  The demo that was shown at PAX is the same demo that the press got to experience at the GDC recently.  It’s a pre-alpha version of the game that still could go through many changes, but the version that was shown is definitely on the right track.

GK FIlms has aquired the right to the Tomb Raider franchise.  In case you don’t know who they are, they have brought us the films The Town, Rango, and The Tourist.  Like the reboot of the video game franchise they will be rebooting the series.

Dead Island GDC

Okay, before I start saying anything, I want to say that I have not played this game personally yet.  I am only going by what I have read from other websites and their impressions on Dead Island now that they have had a chance to play the game.

Yu Suzuki: Shenmue 3? Please!

suzukigdc32

Ah Shenmue, back in the day of the Dreamcast this game was popular for a number of reasons.  It was the first game to introduce QTE button presses, the first to include a fighting game inside an RPG, as well as the first game to make an environment look as amazing as it did.  The bad part about it, however, was the game reportedly helped bankrupt Sega and kill the Dreamcast.

And the Award Goes to…

Last night we had the 83rd annual Oscar’s, I’ve compiled a list of the winners for each category for everyone to see. I think I predicted The King’s Speech on our podcast not too long ago when it was announced. Just due to the fact that I have not seen it yet and thats how these things usually go.

The Guild: Series Review

Well, the past weekend I found myself a little too tired to play video games so I just wanted to relax and enjoy something funny. Turning on my Xbox, I booted up Netflix and was recommended ‘The Guild’. I personally haven’t read any reviews on this web series that is brought to us by Felicia Day, but I have of course heard a little about it since I too am an online game addict with World of Warcraft. So I finally got around to watching the web series and all it’s 4 seasons that we currently have.
