Instant Karma’s Google’s gonna get you. Gonna look you right in the face. John Lennon lyrics aside, Google has introduced a pretty slick feature designed to make search faster and more efficient: Google Instant. Search results on Google.com now appear instantly and adjust as you type. It’s pretty impressive tech (from my five minutes of […]
According to Gamasutra, Namco Bandai has officially confirmed the (much rumored) departure of Keita Takahashi. Best known as the creative force behind Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy, Takahashi has a reputation for making refreshingly unique and original games. His departure isn’t too surprising. He’s currently working on designing parks for children and seems more […]
While I was in Asia, Sony announced that PlayStation Plus customers are eligible for a discount on the PlayStation Protection Plan. The deal adds a bit of value to PlayStation Plus, but I was wondering how many of you care about console warranties. Certainly console buyers -- especially new ones that were burned by the Xbox 360's red ring of death -- are more cautious these days, but does that translate into plopping down cash on something like the PlayStation Protection Plan or a Best Buy warranty?
Some of you have started doing this already through Coffee Talk, but I wanted to keep it going. It would be cool/fun if we followed each other on iTunes Ping. If you’re interested, please leave your Ping name in the comments section. As for me, I’m “Raymond Padilla”. I actually buy more music from Amazon […]
I’m still getting back into the swing of things in America, but as far as I can tell there’s only one interesting game out this week: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. As a comic-book nerd and videogame nerd, I’m all over this one…except that the “Witch Hunt” DLC for Dragon Age: Origins is also out this week. […]
I caught up on several movies while flying to and around Asia. Most of them were new releases that are out of theaters but not yet available on Blu-ray/DVD. There were some surprises for me, but for the most part I was happy that I didn't pay money to see these movies in theaters. Here's the rundown.
Hot on the heels of Ariane’s introduction, BioWare has revealed that Dog and Finn will be in the mix in the “Witch Hunt” DLC for Dragon Age: Origins. If you’ve played the game then you know that Dog (or whatever you named him) is a charming and devastating companion. As for Finn, here’s the scoop: […]
Aside from Wordfeud for Android with RPadholics Big Blak and SlickyFats, I’m still not playing much of anything in Asia. I will be playing some games on United’s business class IFE on the trip back, but that’s about it. Surprisingly, I don’t miss my consoles too too much. I love traveling, seeing different countries, and […]
To celebrate the two-year anniversary of its Chrome web browser, Google has release version six of its excellent web surfer. Here’s a clip from the official Google blog: We’re releasing a new stable version of Chrome that is even faster and more streamlined. Chrome is now three times faster than it was two years ago […]
The title of this edition of Coffee Talk should really be "While I Was Out", but then it wouldn't fit in with one of my favorite Mr. Majestic trade paperbacks. Majestros is cool and underrated. You should read his books. Anyway, today's question is really simple: what was the biggest gaming news while I was away from the site?
