Hey everyone! Welcome to the Fourth episode of the Video Game Podcast 3000. This week not much happened but we found stuff to talk about anyway! Video game controllers, Kickstarter horror stories and even talk about what we thought was the best game of the year thus far! So many topics, so little time.

Hey everyone! Welcome to the second episode of the Video Game Podcast 3000. In this second episode we discuss E3 2014 and what we saw, liked, disliked and talk way too long about it. We’ll try to not speak for this long ever again, at least not until there is so much to talk about from a single event.

How to Pokémon

I wanted to share what I’ve learned about Pokémon. This short guide covers effort training, individual values and gathers a lot of information from across the Internet that I make use of in raising and training Pokémon myself.

(more…)

Oh, Yeah?

So for $99 I can play a handful of crappy Android apps, and a handful of probably decent indie games, on my TV.
I can connect an Xbox360 controller to my PC and do that now.

I also assume that these guys have done little to no market research. Sure, they’ve got the “nerd” numbers – but the customers they need if they’re going to crack into the market aren’t the ones savvy enough to follow a Kickstarter, they’re the ones that don’t even know how to shop online. A huge percentage of the population aren’t going to be able to really use this machine. They’ll get frustrated once and it’ll be given away or packed away and forgotten. And it’s only $99 – that’s cheap enough to use once or twice and forget; it’s still in the “child’s toy” price range.

I know I’m getting my grumpy on today, but I’ll keep my $99 thanks, and spend it on real games, on a real games platform.

Gotta something ’em all!

July is Shameless Gaming Month, you can check out details here, a time for reflection on the Pile of Shame that’s been left, neglected, unfinished, unplayed. It’s already the 2nd and I haven’t yet finished my preparations, so I’m not sure how successful this is going to be; there’s also the Steam Summer Sale looming, and we all know how that ended last year. Still, SGM is about setting and achieving your own goals, it’s not a competition – even if I am in it to win it.

So here’s a snapshot of my current-gen console games; Steam library is another tale entirely. For starters I’d like to finish Skyward Sword and Amnesia, since I’ve already put a bit of time in each of them.

That’ll be my goal this week, which should also give me time to plan for the rest of the month.
