The Digital Storm Bolt PC gaming computer, however, sat plugged into my TV for more than two months before I tested it for the sole reason that it scared me.
How on Earth would someone like me, raised the last few years on game consoles, know the first thing about testing a gaming computer? Sure, I grew up on PC gaming, but...
However, I picked up a real one a couple weeks ago that was hooked up to a video game console so I could try out the forthcoming BandFuse: Rock Legends.
This was no cheap plastic Guitar Hero guitar controller, however. This was a real one and within a few moments, I was learning how to play guitar.
Badly on my part though, not the game’s.
In the game, you can play guitar or bass, or sing along to a variety of songs from artists such as Slash, Maroon...
Kingdom Rush was one of my favorite tower defense games on iOS even though I never finished it. When I got a chance to play its sequel, Frontiers, I was determined to finish it, even if I had to “grind” away at many early levels to make enough in-game money or level up enough abilities to tackle harder levels.
If you haven’t played a Kingdom Rush game before, basically you have ...
Jordan Mechner bucked that trend being the creator of Prince of Persia, as well as the screenwriter behind the eventual film some decades late. He’s now out with a new book, an original graphic novel Templar, on July 9.
He and I recently spoke via email about his background in gaming and what he thinks about current trends.
What was the first game you ever created? I know it wasn't Prince of Persia…
In college, I made a karate-fighting game...
In the game, players take on the role of a peacekeeping Ranger who needs to combat and defeat alien and human enemies while, well, endlessly running. (Not familiar with endless runners? Think Temple Run.)
Some of the main features of the game include:
- Story Mode: 20 challenging mi...
If you’re unfamiliar with StoryBundle, you pay what you want to get six books, but if you pay more, you get more.
The Video Game Bundle includes multiple titles making their ebook debut, as well as some rare ones. Highlights from the initial set of five books and two magazines include:

(You may also know him as the voice of Hulu.)
Spoilers ahead if you didn’t finish the five episode series.
Here’s what we discussed:
How did you first get cast in the role of voice Lee for The Walking Dead game?
I auditioned for the part of Lee Everett... a...
Uprising includes four new Multiplayer maps (Magma, Encore, Vertigo, and Studio), as well as the frightening new Zombies experience, "Mob of the Dead."
I don't think it needs much explaining. I'll introduce it to you as 'simply epic' - with an AWESOME soundtrack.
So sit back and enjoy over five minutes of Metal Gear goodness.
The trailer answer a couple questions, but leaves us with more.
1) We know that Metal Gear Solid V was the previously titled "Phantom Pain" project by Kojima.
2) MGS: V will be a separate game to MGS: Ground Zeroes.
3) It will feature big boss, and some of the returning characters from MGS: Peace Walker.
4) It includes the destruction of Outer Heaven as well ...
Let me just start by saying I'm not really what you would call a 'hardcore' MMO Player. I played WoW on one character (Worgen Druid) which I got to level seventy before quitting. I attempted other MMOs from time to time, but I always seemed to lose interest quickly. Combat doesn't seem to be fascinating enough, crafting gets repet...
