    Day 2 at VGXPO

    I had to be in Philadelphia by one o’clock to make the showing of the film Moral Kombat. On the train I was thinking that I might not make it in time but I did get there twenty minutes early and I was glad to be there. Everything was great until I figured out that I did not know where the conference rooms were. So after some searching I found the room but they hadn’t filled up enough and decided to postpone the show for thirty minutes. Though I was disappointed I decided that there was a lot to do in thirty minutes seeing as I was not going to be there for the final day. So I decided to go back up to the show room just to see what was up there. The room was so much more busy and crazy than it was the previous night. There

    Casual Gaming news 11/7/2007

    Oh wow I’ve decided to do this just every Wednesday. It sounds possible this way. But I’m loaded with lots of things to tell you so let’s get this started: [b] Majesco establishes new casual division[/b]- Majesco who you may or may not know from the Cake Mania series has established a new casual games division in LA. Who better to lead it than former Sega exec Bill Petro who will be taking on the role of vice president of internal development. “We’re excited about the opportunities that will result from this initiative and believe this move will allow us to build the same or better product as we do externally with similar or reduced costs,” commented Jesse Sutton, CEO of Majesco. Glad to see that publishers are starting to take casual gaming seriously. [b]Harmonix develops iPod game [/b]- Well if I can include mobile games, then why not iPod

    When will women’s magazines catch up?

    Today is an a-typical Monday morning. And perhaps I should be thankful for that. I came in extra early to work for the time change and everything is humming quite nicely. But because of that, I have been able to update the site and catch up on Monday morning tech news. This morning on Reuters there is a video from the Stuff convention showcasing the coolest in gadgets. In conjunction they have a special magazine that showcases new gadgets. This is not what infuriates me. What makes me mad is where are the female magazines doing this? There are many female tech blogs and gadget sites run by women, why do magazines for women continue to ignore technology? Instead they stick to the same format of writing every month how women can please their man, or how you can lose those last 10 pounds. Marie Claire tries to write some

    Daniel Craig is a Gamer

    That’s right ladies, the super sexy current 007 is a gamer. He enjoys spending some quality time with the pass time that so many of us love. Though he is a gamer, he didn’t wan to do the game based on Casino Royal. Of course he had to do it. Well I guess that’s what happens when you sign a 60 MILLION dollar deal to play James Bond. He did though have a few words to say to the game developers: “I said to the people making the Bond game, “You’ve got to make this good because there is so much rubbish out there.” The downside he’s girlfriend isn’t so much a fan. “I have to pick my time well. If my girlfriend sees the box then it’s all over. If I get some free time, when she goes away for the weekend, I’ll go and play some games.” There

    Halloween Gamer Style

    Thought I know Trina won’t be partaking in any scarefest, but I figured that tonight is the perfect night to haul out some classic, or new scary games to celebrate the night of ghost and ghouls. These are in no spacifice order, just as they come to me. 1) Resident Evil series: (PS/GC/PS2/Wii) These games are sometimes very intense. I mean I jump a mile off my chair every time some comes after me! I would suggest the original, or RE4. Get the Wii version to up the fun factor. Besides it’s not Halloween without the ZOMBI! (Lesson: Zombi is the singular for zombies) 2) Silent Hill Series: (PS/PS3) Talk about a mindfuck. (Sorry about the profoundity). If your looking for a game with a creepy factor, where the nurses are not there to help, and the town is super creepy, hop over to the Silent Hill series. 3) DOOM

    Oi this is frustrating!

    So yeah I had problems with my computer and the school schedule so I was actually able to rent a computer from school! That was so cool! So now I have a school PC at my house and I have even started noodling with the World builder program. One thing is it is very frustrating. I don’t know what anything does and this is very different from what I had done with GTK Radiant and the Quake II engine. Everything there was self explanatory and was easy to pick up. Here takes a little work and it is really insane. I hope to get a handle on the controls soon because I really need to keep up! Now to write this week’s news.
