BioShock Infinite Motorized Sky-hook Replica

April 21, 2013

The latest addition to my growing collection of video game collectibles is the BioShock Infinite Motorized Sky-hook Replica. When my Sky-hook arrived, I was fully expecting it to be a scaled down replica of what I’d imagine the real thing to be, but to my surprise it was a full size 1:1 replica. Much larger than I’d even imagined. It’s almost entirely made of plastic and yes, it really spins, but it’s not an electric motor, you have to spin it Read more →

My First Gaming Rig Build

So I recently decided it was finally time to build a gaming rig. At first, my plan was to buy a Razer Edge Pro gaming tablet, but after pre-ordering at midnight and being told I wouldn’t receive one until May, I decided to cancel my pre-order and build a gaming rig instead. Could not be happier with my decision, by the time I would have finished buying all the accessories for the Razer Edge Pro, I’d be pretty close to the cost of my build.

I’ll include links to everything I put into my build in case you feel like doing the same.

Cost:

I’m currently around $2200 (rough guesstimate) into my build and pretty much finished besides a new power supply and another Graphics card to SLI in the future.

What I got for $2200:

I’ll admit it, when I first heard Telltale Games was taking the first shot at making The Walking Dead game, as a fan, I was worried. I felt the game needed to be an adventure game, not just a point and click, like Telltale is known for. I’m happy to say that all my fears were put to rest when I finally got my Read more →

My Childhood Returns

16 Apr
April 16, 2012

Growing up, some of my fondest gaming memories were playing PC games, specifically Sierra’s point and click adventures; Kings Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest and Leisure Suit Larry. I still remember for Christmas at 7 years old, receiving my first game, Kings Quest IV on PC.

Since the start of the Kickstarter craze, most of those games have been popping up left and right. First the remake of Leisure Suit Larry, then Wasteland 2, Tex Murphy and now I just caught wind of the Space Quest creators getting back together for a new Spaceventure. With my frustration for console games, this is a much needed breath of fresh air. The big question is, can they live up to the expectations of their long time fans and at the same time draw in this new generation of ‘entitled’ gamers? Only time will tell.
