Wanted to share a recent Digital Foundry comparison of all the Portal console versions. According to the review, the Switch version may be the best console version of both games. Too bad Valve doesn’t support the console versions of its games more but then again they are fairly old games too.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge does a great job of capturing the essence of the TMNT arcade game from 1990, which later came to the NES. At the time there was already a TMNT game on the NES, so this was given the title of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game.” It allowed up to four players to take on the Foot Clan as each of the TMNT. You can check out the Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtles_(arcade_game) It also very much reminds me of the Simpsons arcade game, which was popular.

This version allows up to six players online and offline. If you’re playing on Steam, you’ll have the chance to link to... Read All

At the end of this month, Samsung Smart TVs (from 2022, not older) will have the new XBox App, and players will be able to stream games without a console!

I love Samsung TVs, but mine is a bit older (2014). The next time I buy a new TV, I will definitely stick with Samsung, and just might get a Game Pass to start playing games again!

Gaming without a console is a game-changer (no pun intended )

What say you? Would you be interested in going console-less with a Smart TV?

DotEmu & Tribute Games released a three part behind the scenes documentary about their upcoming brawler Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. The first doc video talks about how they came to make the game and approach it from a design perspective, part two focuses on game design and part three is the art of the game.

It’s a great behind the scenes look at the game and each part isn’t too long. I found myself wanting a bit more which is all good as the game launches tomorrow. I imagine I’ll write my thoughts on some point after I play it so check back for my early thoughts. So far the game seems to be getting nearly universal acclaim, which is an awesome... Read All

Clocking in at over 90 minutes the XBox & Bethesda Games Showcase was jam packed with gaming goodness. The standout announcements were more information about Redfall, Forza Motorsport, Overwatch 2 (now Free to Play and launches in October), Ark 2, Minecraft Legends, Diablo IV (launching in 2023), Flight Simulator free Halo update & Starfield.

It was a really fun event to watch but there were almost too many games to process and by the end some games ran together in my mind too much. That said, I am excited about a few games and we got a few news bits that were new.

Diablo IV Necromancer Diablo IV showed it final character in the Necromancer. So far no characters... Read All


Go grab Ark: Survival Evolved for free on Steam before June 19 at 10AM PDT. Studio Wildcard just released a free new map to the game and also made some announcements on the official website (see link below). The embedded trailer contains the map's announcement, but there are other videos on the YouTube channel that also provide info about it and the new exclusive creatures to the map.

I haven't gotten into the game yet and I don't want to get into details. I just want this to be a quick announcement. If you're interested in reading about the new map, Ark 2 (next year) and the Animated Series (which has a full cast of very well known actors), check the link below.

I cannot pass up writing this post! The trailer is so awesome! If you're familiar with the classic Munsters TV show, this trailer will probably greatly impress you, too! It doesn't even matter if you don't know who Rob Zombie is! (I'm a fan of the music, but not interested in the horror movies. I like the Zombie family, but I don't like zombies, except for Zombie Dr. Strange.)

Rock legend and horror film aficionado Rob Zombie said he's been chasing this project for 20 years. At first, I was concerned, knowing how much Rob Zombie loves horror movies and I do not. I was not expecting to be so greatly impressed! It's not like a scary horror movie, it's pretty much exactly... Read All
