Full Circle, Atari Flashback Beats Them All

  My son requested and received the Atari Flashback 3 for Christmas after listening to the many gaming stories I had as a child of the 80s. After ripping open the box and setting up the system, he paused and looked very confused. “What’s the matter?” I asked. “Umm, I don’t get it.” he responded. My son was confused by the lack of detailed graphics and sounds the games produced. They did not look anything […]

Sony – You pay you lose

 I love my Sony products.  I love the fact that my Sony Reader PRS-500 is still going strong.  I love streaming Netflix on my PS3.  I love watching my Blu-ray movies on my XBR-52.  I love messing around with my PSP when I am bored (yeah, the PSP does not see much action these days).  I love how Sony use to take care of me.  But now… With firmware 3.21 on the PS3 coming out […]

Gaming on the go

phone_gaming

 At this year’s GDC, Tero Ojanpera of Nokia talked about the importance of social networking and distribution of gaming through mobile phones.  Ojanpera estimated by 2012, 40% of game revenues will be coming from players of emerging markets that do not have access to high end computer gear or broadband connectivity but will carry a mobile device.  These users’ online experience will be shaped by what can be delivered through their cell phones.  The expectation […]
