Kinect Musings

Posted 06-17-2010 at 09:26 AM by modeps (Gaming Hell)


The Kinect for Xbox 360 is coming this Fall. Read aloud, it sounds like you're going to be playing Hasbro's classic token dropping game on your Xbox, but quite honestly, I'm more optimistic than I was before solid details came out about it. Microsoft aimed to create something for the entire family and just from the lineup of things coming out for it (eventually) they've certainly succeeded.

I'm a father of two with...

The GOATYS

Posted 12-01-2009 at 06:30 PM by modeps (Gaming Hell)

It's time again to pick the Evil Awards. Each of us red folk'll get to pick what we feel is the best games of the year and we'll post about it at the end of this month... so now I've gotta figure out what I'm going to pick.

I've got two front-runners fo' sho' but we can only pick one as the top dog... I don't know how I'm going to. Despite having a lot of titles pushed back to 2010, the end of this year has been really great for gaming. Sure, we've seen plenty of sequels but I'm...

Starting Over

Posted 11-12-2009 at 11:20 AM by modeps (Gaming Hell)

Yesterday in the midst of work, I did something strange that I don't think I would ever do... I grabbed my USB to IDE connector, plugged in an old hard drive, and copied over every single MP3 on my desktop and deleted them from my local machine. Over the years, I had accumulated a plethora of absolute garbage ripped in a variety of different ways and at a million different qualities. Why? Because I was lazy... I never took the time to deal with it properly and now I had an unorganized mess of files....

On Sourcing

Posted 11-04-2009 at 05:41 AM by modeps (Gaming Hell)


There's been something on my mind... and I'm not talking about me just wearing a funny hat while I play DJ Hero. No, instead it's a little pet peeve of mine regarding several of the corporate news sites on the Internets.

Much like "normal" world news, most video game news comes from somewhere specific. Very few times will you see a REPORTER ON THE SCENE WITH LATE BREAKING COVERAGE. The reality is that...

October BANG

I'm just going through the releases that we saw in October, as well as those coming out this week and, I've gotta tell you, if you don't find SOMETHING to like this month, you should leave this website. Seriously. Next week proves that October is going out with an absolute bang. Tons of retail games, plenty of good stuff, and plenty of shovelware.

Oh, and November looks like it'll be pretty freakin' awesome too... and here I thought all the games got moved to early next year. Oh...
