Hardware Review – Homido Virtual Reality Headset

Homido is 100% 3D compatible, allowing you to watch your favorite 3D movies. The binocular vision mode of the headset and the two VR lenses offer a perfect stereoscopic experience.

Perfect? that might be debatable but good fun, certainly.


Notice Me Senpai #NSFW

For some reason my kid loves this thing… its totally inappropriate and #NSFW (See what I did there, don’t open this at work or while your mom or moms mom is watching.)


Good friend returns a solid – Somebody bought me GTA 5

GTA 5 is a lot of fun. Cruising with friends, racing pushbikes, robbing convenience stores and meth labs. Good times.


Hardware Review – Official Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Qi Wireless Charging Kit

51026Keeping my Note 4 charged is a never ending battle. Coming from a Sony Xperia Z series means I’m used to 4 days battery life and the Note 4’s impressive screen real estate and snappy processing capabilities reduce that to a day at best. Enter the Wireless charging solution, and what a solution it is. I scored an Official Samsung Note 4 Qi kit from Mobilezapp and I can say I’m very pleased.


Elite Dangerous is Meta – Meta Complex, Meta Fun

Meta (from the Greek preposition and prefix meta- (μετά-) meaning “after”, or “beyond”) is a prefix used in English to indicate a concept which is an abstraction from another concept, used to complete or add to the latter.

Not getting any younger.

14 - 1Life was easier when I was a kid. We had Were’s wally, a collection books where you had to find the strange creepy uncle looking fella with a camera and the first real cool video game was where in the world is Carmen Dandiego.

What we didn’t have was a 4 year old telling dad he likes the rainbow radio channel in GTA 5. That’s the rap channel for the record. I have failed as a parent.

Now I know my child likes rap I don’t know what to do. I was considering not letting him watch me play GTA 5 but that seemed a little radical.


Some people play games for fun, others want a challenge.

Personally I hate fun and challange is for weaklings. Bring on Dark Souls 2 (Which for the record, is much easier than dark souls and apparently easier than demon souls.)


Movie Review – Indie Game – The Movie

by Gouanaco (aka Max Winzar)

Indie Game – The Movie does a very good job of presenting what the life of a few Indie Game developers is like. Not just showing their success but also there hardships and problems that they encounter. Proving that creating a polished Indie game isn’t as easy as bread and butter and can take up someone’s entire social life for many years.


Happy Birthday – Me in 2014

It’s been a longish year, and a lot has happened over the arbitrary period of time noted previously. Not important.

 

I got Rock Smith for Christmas birthday… whatever.

 

WOOOOOOOOO !!!


I miss video games so much – Part 1

Hi, you might know me from such video games as everything that was released ever, and you’ll know I simply love video games.  All of them, even the one’s that aren’t very good. So when I say I fucking hate video games so much I could scream you might wonder what kind of bi-polar point I’m trying to make.
