If you’re looking for an old-school hardcore platformer then you should definitely check out Fenix Rage. The game is being developed by Green Lava Studios and published by Reverb Triple XP. Fenix Rage is a relentlessly difficult platform game that’s extremely addictive and has lots of replay value.

Coffee Talk #640: Who’s Your Favorite Ninja?

Posted on August 11th, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, Comics, Movies, TV, Videogames. 4 comments

I recently saw the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot and was incredibly disappointed. The movie is a wretched piece of crap that tarnishes the TMNT franchise and is an embarrassment to ninjas around the world. Thankfully, I watched a superior TMNT movie (more on that later this week) to cleanse my palette. The whole ordeal got me thinking about ninjas and wanting to discuss ninjas with you. There are so many awesome ninjas from comic books, movies, television, and videogames. Who are some of your favorites? Let’s use today’s Coffee continued

Following the super-fun Pogo Plumber, Apptly has released a trailer for its upcoming game Dino Skater. Another old-school platform game from Apptly, Dino Skater features traditional platformer elements like side-scrolling action and coin collecting. Instead of playing as a kindhearted plumber or a speedy hedgehog, you play as a skateboarding dinosaur. As you know, skateboarding dinosaurs are all kinds of awesome, because…skateboarding dinosaur! Dino Skater is a free to play game, with in-app purchases available for “cosmetic upgrades.” When you have a chance, check out the trailer below … continued

Saber’s Edge and To-Fu Fury are co-developed with partners,

Coffee Talk #637: Ford Focus Electric and the Gamification of Driving

Posted on July 21st, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, Electric Cars, Videogames. 3 comments

Driving a Ford Focus Electric has a lot of similarities to playing videogames on a home console. In the immortal word of Christopher Cross, “It sounds crazy, but it’s true.” The Ford Focus Electric has a system of achievements, scores, and leaderboards that supplement the driving experience, similar to how PlayStation and Xbox consoles have these features to supplement the videogame experience. For certain drivers (i.e. nerdy ones), it makes driving more fun.

On the “My Driving” page on MyFordMobile.com, Ford Focus Electric drivers can keep track … continued

Posted on July 2nd, by raymond padilla in Videogames. No Comments

My darling ex-fiancé pointed me out to a fun game called Pogo Plumber. This 2D side-scroller is available now for iOS and is coming soon to Android devices. Pogo Plumber is a real treat for fans of 8-bit platformers and contains several familiar elements — a high-jumping plumber, collecting coins, minions that require head stomping, and more. Pogo Plumber is a free-to-play game, so kindly download it when you have a chance and share your thoughts on it in the comments section.

Right about now a few of you … continued

Coffee Talk #629: Random Thoughts on E3 2014

Posted on June 14th, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, PC Gaming, PlayStation 4, Videogames, Wii U, Xbox One. 2 comments
Now that we've all had a few days to absorb the multimedia assault that was E3 2014, let's talk about the show! I was working for two outlets during E3 2014, so my schedule was all over the place. I did see a lot of great games, but it's likely that you guys and gals were exposed to more from reading various articles and watching different videos. The thing that surprised me the most about E3 2014 was that there were a lot of mainstream games that excited me. For the last couple of years, independent games like Journey, Sound Shapes, and The Unfinished Swan were my big favorites. While I certainly enjoyed several indie games at E3 2014, there were a lot of mainstream games I had a blast with too. Here are some random thoughts on the show...continued

Coffee Talk #628: What You Want From E3 2014

Posted on June 4th, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, Console Wars, PC Gaming, Videogames. 4 comments
E3 2014 is just around the corner. Honestly, I've been avoiding thinking much about it. My June is pretty nuts -- E3, The Vape Summit, hosting a pair of store grand openings, family visits, and more. Obviously E3 shows are something that I always look forward to; they're wondrous events that are unlike any other trade show I've attended (and I've attended a ton of 'em). It's always awesome seeing new games, seeing how other games are coming along, watching the press conference spectacles, watching the publisher pissing contests, and (most of all) catching up with longtime colleagues in the gaming business. Still, I'm so detached from the industry at the moment that I don't...continued

Coffee Talk #625: Videogame Journalists Done Good

Posted on May 23rd, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, PC Gaming, Videogames. 1 Comment
StarWars.com recently announced that Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and Gary Whitta will be working on the first Star Wars standalone spinoff movie. The second name took me by surprise (gleefully). You see, Whitta is a former videogame journalist. He was the editor of several gaming magazines for Future US and was quite popular within the business. Since (mostly) leaving the business, Whitta has written the screenplays for The Book of Eli and After Earth. Working on a Star Wars movie will undoubtedly take his success to new heights. Hearing about Whitta's Star Wars news reminded me of Kieron Gillen. Another...continued

Millions of consumers know Kingston for its memory products. Most of you have probably purchased PC RAM or a memory card from the company. Kingston is trying to make a name for itself in the gaming world and one of the company’s latest gaming-focused products is the HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset. I’ve been using a pair for the last few weeks and while it’s not the best gaming headset I’ve used, the HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset offers a lot for a sub-$100 set of cans.
