As a big fan of new game development technologies, I was extremely excited to see Rage, id Software’s next flagship title.  Like Doom, and Quake before it, Rage is the title that will be showcasing the new id Tech 5 game engine.  Buzzwords like “MegaTextures” keep popping up in the industry recently, and now I got to see what all the hype was about.

Let me start by saying that iGUGU Gamecore is a classic idea.  It embodies what every gamer has at one point or another wished existed, something long overdue: a device that converts PC controls to console controls with a universal hub, and manages to include a full, albeit tiny and cheap, keyboard as well.  The real question is, why has this not been done before?  Well, in testing out the Gamecore device, I think I discovered the answer.

Remember the good ‘ol days when our flat panel TV’s only had to fear surprisingly aerodynamic Wiimotes cracking Mach 2 from an overly aggressive Wii-Tennis serve (What! Hit that grandma!)? Well on November fourth, another threat lopes out from the motion control dimension paralleling our own. It’s Microsoft’s Kinect, the peripheral formerly known (much more badassly) as Project Natal. Now, our TVs have to deal with us looking like we’re playing Simon Says at a lobotomy jamboree.

Buying the Hype: Bulletstorm

The FPS genre is over-saturated. With a new Call of Duty game every year now, and new iterations of Battlefield, Halo and Medal of Honor, I’m just tired of the genre.

At least, I was.
