  • My Handheld Hiatus

    13

    While I do not agree with the notion and the quote is an obvious attack from Sony on Nintendo's handheld, it further emphasizes that the "social norm" is that handhelds are for kids. That argument was put to rest when I witnessed the multitude of adults freely playing at the Zelda symphony and read numerous accounts of people in my age range that still openly play at the theatre or airport. But while tapping my screen furiously with a stylus or tilting a device every which way, I could not help but feel a little self-conscious.

  • Dragons, and Wizards, and Spells. Oh, My!

    8

    It is the problem I have with every RPG I pick up. If I fail to completely play through and invest time from start to finish, I return to a pile of confusion. The long list of quests, the pages of abilities, and the numerous skills in each class tree can be a lot to reabsorb. Each character acts like a long lost friend that I bump into, struggling to remember their name or how they remember me so well...

  • Mass Effect 3 - Better with Kinect?

    7

    If you are like most of the crowd this past weekend, you were knee deep in the Mass Effect 3 demo. By now, you have played your fifth run through the Single Player Demo, maxed out your Adept in multiplayer, and created a blog detailing your impressions. While the demo has a lot to offer, the Kinect functionality was a feature gaining a lot of promotion. Bioware even smacked a "Better with Kinect" tagline on the box, promising the Kinect will enhance your experience with Mass Effect 3. The game focuses on voice recognition to issue commands, read dialogue wheel choices, or choose a weapon or ability; so I broke out my Kinect sensor to take it for a test drive.
