Warning: I'm going to get a little sappy on you today. You see, as I was in Asia playing Wordfeud for Android with Big Blak and Slickyfats, I was amazed at how gaming brought us all together. Whether it's reading the stuff I write, talking it up in the comments section, or playing games together while thousands of miles apart, gaming binds us (like The Force in Star Wars). It's just a powerful and awesome thing.
After hopping around Asia for a few weeks, adjusting to life in America, and combating jet lag (it’s winning), I’m ready to resume my gaming life! I’ve played a bunch of “Witch Hunt” for Dragon Age: Origins and will likely give it another run or two this weekend. Aside from that, there are a bunch […]
[Michael Buffer voice] Are you ready?!? And now...the top ten games...of August 2010 as cited by NPD Group. Let's get ready to rumble!!! [/Michael Buffer voice] Here they are:
NPD Group has released its console sales figures for August 2010. August is a traditionally weak month for the business and the numbers reflect that. Check it out:
I was watching a bit of the U.S. Open when Ralph Macchio was randomly interviewed. In addition to talking about his son’s tennis career and his first trip to the U.S. Open despite growing up in New York, Macchio plugged his tongue-in-cheek short film Wax On, F*ck Off. Naturally, I searched for it right away…and […]
The fantastic Kevin Butler is back and this time around he’s selling Sony’s upcoming Playstation Move. To paraphrase Michael Cole (who still sucks), these commercials are “Vintage Butler!”. Check ’em out and let me know what you think (please). Sep 9, 2010RPadTV
A year ago, I was all about physical keyboards on mobile phones. While the virtual keyboard on my iPhone 3GS was somewhat acceptable, I greatly preferred the speed and accuracy of my BlackBerry 8900. Virtual keyboards on Android have improved a lot in the last year, but they still aren't great. Opting for a virtual keyboard over a "real" one seemed crazy to me. Then something happened that totally changed my preference -- I discovered Swype.
T-Mobile has officially announced the G2 by HTC, the company’s first HSPA+ phone. The product page lists numerous features and specs. However, pricing and availability have not yet been revealed. As a T-Mobile customer, I’m disappointed in the G2. I love that it supports T-Mo’s zippy HSPA+ network and that it uses a Scorpion processor, […]
The Motorola Droid was the first Google Android phone to make a big splash in America. Its follow-up — aptly named the Droid 2 — is a worthy successor. While it has an improved keyboard and faster processor, Android hardware has come a long way in the last year. It’s a compelling choice for consumers […]
In the past couple of Coffee Talk columns, I referred to Floyd Mayweather, Jr.’s racist (and homophobic) rant against Manny Pacquiao. In addition to accusing Pacquiao of taking performance enhancing drugs, Mayweather railed on the Filipino boxer for eating dogs, eating cats, being yellow, being a midget, and being a “faggot”. Mayweather eloquently claimed that […]
