Musical Taste Video of the Day: Banjo/Musical Saw Zelda Medley by Frontier Ruckus

So, I went to college with a few of the members of folk-rock band Frontier Ruckus and I have to say, I’m not at all surprised to see them showing their geek credentials. Check out this excellent medley of songs from The Legend of Zelda, primarily performed on banjo and musical saw.

Dead Island getting a movie but do the reviews justify it?

Well, earlier this year, we all saw the awesome trailer for Dead Island, the latest in zombie-devastating video-game goodness. It looked fantastic, was beautifully shot and had what appeared to be a great budget. When the game hit, while not terrible, it didn’t seem to live up to the hype. According to Deadline, this has […]

Lincoln’s Link of the Day: Deku Tree of Life

As someone who is finally playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time now that it’s been released on the 3DS (shut up, I never had a N64), I must admit that this is awesome. I’ve played many of the great Zelda games: A Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess…. and […]

New Year, New Games: Top 10 PS3 Games to Look Out for in 2011

2010 has come and gone. I’ve spent the last week off from work and in a haze of diet, exercise, and WoW: Cataclysm. I did have the time to check out a great new PSN game, EAT THEM, which is vaguely reminiscent of SNK’s King of Monsters, but focusing on the destruction rather than battling […]

Desert Bus for Hope 4 rolls out… for the children!

As a liberal-minded geek, I try and donate to charity whenever I can because I believe that helping other people and being altruistic is a pretty cool thing. Also as a kid, I spent almost an entire week strapped to a bed at the Childrens Hospital of Orange County in California after a kidney surgery. […]

Trisha’s Link of the Day: Well played, Rob Liefeld

When I was a nascent comics fan in the mid-1990s, one of the most important things I learned about the art was that Rob Liefeld can’t draw feet. Since then, I’ve learned that the former Marvel Comics wunderkind who created X-Force and one of the founding members of Image Comics also can’t draw women, men, […]

PSN Tuesday – August 24, Shank

The traditionally slow summer season has been anything but this year, with most weeks bringing forth an excellent downloadable game either on the PS3 or the 360. This week bring the highly anticipated Shank, a 2D sidescrolling brawler from Klei Entertainment. While there are a number of excellent choices in this genre even just in […]

PSN Tuesday – August 17, Sackneto Was Right

Please excuse the lateness, here’s what has graced the Playstation Network today. Flight simulators seem to be in fashion this week, with the release of Top Gun and a demo for Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2. Top Gun is a downloadable adaptation of the film, focusing on arcade-style air combat. The game contains single player missions […]

PS3 Throws Down at Köln Gamescom

Today saw huge announcements from a number of companies at Gamescom in Köln, Germany. On the Playstation side of things, there were five new trailers for PS3 exclusives accompanying the long-awaited announcement of Mass Effect 2 for the PS3. Having played both Mass Effect games on the PC, I really can’t recommend the series highly enough. […]
