Someone recently posted on the ASTRO Gaming Forums informing us that he was licking his controller cable before inserting it into his MixAmp for a better connection… It so reminded me of the weird “viral” happenstance of my youth. It’s the classic example of how my fellow youth of the 80s ruined their Nintendo Entertainment Systems. Backstory: The NES had some inherit fault with it, where after about 2-3 years …

History of the Onza: So it’s been nearly a year from the first announcement of Razer‘s entrance into the console gaming market with two new peripherals for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console. At CES 2010, they announced (and had a working demo unit) of the Onza controller, and a 5.1 surround sound headset named the Chimera. Both their products kept getting pushed back, and it wasn’t until January 2011 that they …

I tried both Bulletstorm and Crysis 2’s demos yesterday. Bulletstorm was neat. Felt like Unreal Tournament meets Gears. Or a strange GoW in 1st person. The concept and weapons were different enough from Gears to make it fun. While the level was short, they made it so you can keep replaying the demo over and over again to improve your score. How do you do that? Well, the whole slogan …

For those not familiar, PAX stands for Penny Arcade Expo, a convention of sort for gamers that was started by the website/web comic Penny Arcade. Starting in 2004, it’s grown every year, and even added a PAX East hosted in Boston in the Spring of 2010. For me, this’ll be my first PAX. I’ll be hanging probably with the ASTRO Gaming crew and a bunch of the Destructoid guys (BTW: …

BBQ went well. There was tons of food. Michelle and Ryan made this cool fruit salad and used the watermelon shell as a bowl! it was so cool, till Wade broke it. Ahhh well. The main food was hambergers and hotdogs, and some kaluhua (dunno if that’s spelled right) bbq pork. The bbq kaluhua pork was a little strong, hah, didn’t burn out well. I also helped a guy named …

Watching Fight Club. What an interesting movie. Still makes me think realllllly hard, because I don’t totally undertand it, hehe. Still remember the first time I saw it with Elisa, man was it EVER confusing, geez, didn’t understand it one bit till I talked about the movie after wards. Been playing a game called Black & White. Interesting game. Pretty fun, but crashes too often that I can’t really get …

Argh, I hate my video card or something. Whenever I play some games (like Quake3) it’ll just randomly crash my computer. Same thing happens in Counterstrike. I was doing really well in Rocket Arena 3 too, even though I haven’t played in about a week or so. =P Had a damage score of about 42, frags were at 23, time was only at 15 minutes. *sigh* stupid video card…. current …
