Awesome Indie game time!

TitleBar

OK OK, I know I haven’t added anything in my since the 19th of December. I keep having a bad habit of going into procrastination mode! But hey! Something awesome video game related happened to me today! So let me show you this awesome indie game I stumbled on Steam GreenLight, Robot Roller Derby Disco Dodgeball!

When I saw this on Steam GreenLight I thought this was an awesome idea for a game! It’s pretty much a multiplayer FPS game where you kill people with dodgeballs! Not to mention it has a great name! Even better you can play the early access version of this game for a mere five bucks! Continue reading

Trying out Steam OS

Steam-OS

On the 13th, Valve released their Beta version of Steam OS and Steam Machine hardware to testers. Unfortunately I wasn’t one of the lucky 300 or so people who received a high-end Steam Machine, equipped with an nVidia Titan and the beta version of the Steam Controller; basically the pad with seen, but the OLED touch screen is replaced with 4 square buttons.

ExtraLife

As I’m now mega hooked on the Steam version of Pinball Arcade I’m going to attempt to play Pinball for 24 hours for charity!

I have set up a Facebook page for it Right Here! Otherwise if you’re not a Facebook User you can see my Charity page Right here! My target is to raise $200 USD. Yes it’s in US dollars, the money will be going to Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. They deal with children who enter the US for serious medical attention that other countries might not provide. Not only do they provide medical assistance, but they provide financial help to other hospitals around the world.

So watch me from 12:00 noon GMT 16th of November, the event will end noon the next day the 17th, hopefully by then I would have raised my $200 target and got some major highscores! I hope to see you there! 😀

Hell yeah! Pinball Arcade is out on Steam!

Oh yes, you better believe it! Pinball Arcade by Farsight Studios has been released on Steam. Making my poor lil’ XBox 360 even more redundant! Then again I heard from Pinball Arcade fans that the 360 game hasn’t been updated in over a year. Sounds like Farsight Studios got annoyed with Microsoft charging them each time they update the game like what happened to Phil Fish and his game Fez.

I’m downing the game as I type, and I’ll be streaming the game on Twitch.TV. So keep your eyes out on this blog for more details!

Watch the Great Bit Stream Halloween Fright Night Spectacular Right Here!

Typing of the Dead: Overkill…? HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!

Oh man! Let me say this, Mavis Beacon was a touch typing edutainment title on the PC back in the day that taught people how to touch type. But in 1999 Sega proved to all of us that Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing, well… sucks! Why have a game where you practise typing with a set of sub-par mini games such as race driving when you can shoot zombies in the face with a keyboard!!! Continue reading

Oh yeah! Halloween is coming! And what a way to scare myself senseless is playing a steam game that I purchased a while back and only played about five minutes of about 2 years back! The game I’m talking about is Amnesia: Dark Descent! A creepy First Person Adventure game that takes gameplay elements from Resident Evil, Doom and Eternal Darkness.
