It was about three nights ago that Ben came over to play Culdcept on Xbox 360. It’s a fantastic blend of Magic: The Gathering and Monopoly, that made Ben cuss and cry. While we were in mid-match he was eyeballing my Wii games, something that’s hard for me to do without feeling disdain. He saw the cover for Mad World and commented how rad it looked. “Yes, it was rad,” I told him. He played and dug it, I made him play No More Heroes which he liked a lot as well.

So with the holidays eating most of our time, Heart Pixel is back.
Terrible reviews, stupid interviews and news. Yup everything is back to normal.

Personally, I’d like to thank Steam and GOG.com for their amazing deals and giving me too many more ways to waste my time.

It’s sale time for digital distribution services for PC games. I just bought 13 games for $52.58. You could argue about a couple of them, but I think they’re all quality games.

We don’t really know anyone we could interview about games, so we decided to interview ourselves. Rufus and Ben go at it about Halo 3: ODST. Read the rest of this entry »

ben weeabooI started my gaming career at the ripe old age of 6 with The Sierra Network, and what was arguably the first “MORPG”, The Shadow of Yserbius. Like any red-blooded American child I had already been hooked on the Atari 2600, NES and Genesis as soon as I was old enough to pick up a controller, but this was the first gaming experience that actually captivated me. It wasn’t just the fact that I was playing with real people across the country (a very exciting prospect at the time). It was the expansiveness of the task ahead of me, the care that went into character creation, and the immersive world you are thrust into with little more than your wits and a couple of gold pieces. It showed me that gaming could be more than entertainment, it could be an experience. I’ve been hooked ever since.

rufus spoonerMy love of gaming had started before I had even realized it, according to my father. He claims that while I was attempting to escape the prison of my Mother’s loins she was playing Frogger on the Atari 2600, and as we all know there was no way to pause or save, and she most definitely “lost a guy”. At around 5, my Dad had taken me to his Boss’ house to play the Nintendo, and I was smitten. I would ask for Nintendo magazines then talk to all of my parents friends about who Mega Mans villains were and show them how Scrooge McDuck would cross a row of spikes.
