http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvX5EQLDLIo I’ve finally got hold of a copy of child of eden, the long wait is over, & was it worth it? Damn yeah! After I’d been charmed by the stunning, plot setting, intro, I played through the 1st level. Which takes you through a non invasive tutorial… after all there’s not much to learn. I won’t try & explain the plot, watch the youtube intro to give you the…

The only feeds coming through to my sites Twitter feed @GamerGeekNews was limited today to just Android posts????? My TwitterFeeds seemed to be working, as did the Yahoo Pipes. What seemed to be the issue was the Twitter searches; they were returning posts over 2 days old! I was fuming! How dare twitter have the audacity to moderate & interrupt my free service 😉 So as a solution, rather than…

Boycott Blackwater Games

June 23, 2011

The Afghan, Iraqi & now Pakistan invasions have been fought by hired mercenaries, which used to go by the name of Blackwater, now known as Xe Services LLC In many cases their employees are exempt from normal laws. The stories of their rape & murders of civilians, which are not widely publicised by the western media, are often horrific. They were kicked out of Iraq for the crimes of employees!…

FREE GAMES DRAW! I play, & in turn, buy, far too many games. Xbox 360 ones in particular. So I’m going to give some away! For starters, once I reach 100 followers on this sites twitter account #GamerGeekNews, I’ll draw a tweeter, who has retweeted any of my posts & a game at random from my collection. All I ask is for a photo to be returned from the recipient…

I’m quite frustrated about this release, as I usually am by all Call of Duty map pack releases which are done 3 months before the release of the next title in the series. The profit margins are huge! Game releases ~$120 nzd 3 map packs ~$20 nzd * 3 = $180 bucks Ok, I do put many hours in, but surely I’d get more hours per map if they were…

Rip off NZ retailers?

June 16, 2011

I’m to use this post to track the prices of console games in New Zealand, compared with the rest of the civilised World. I have an idea that they’re overpriced due to lack of stores… lets see what my web research shows For my 1st example I’m to use Child Of Eden, as it just released today & no store in Auckland has seen it! I’ll show the list price…

AS you may have guessed I’m a gadget collector, usually more expensive & useless the better. I’m justifying why I acquired a kinect at launch, when there were no decent titles (it’s true!) and no actual footage of upcoming games (the Star Wars on stage demo doesn’t count as it was acted out). So I installed software on my Linux box, that could mimic what the xbox does with the…

I had the 1st 2 comments on the blog today… however they were spam. Nevertheless, it means I must be now listed by search engines 🙂 Site now more established & with the interested & stumblers comes the spam. So here’s my spam declaration, anything left as a comment to this post will be left. Let’s see what this experiment shows. 1st one to spam after declaration… I’m to collect…

Ever since my early teens I’ve been an avid fan of the Street Fighter series. Too many college lectures were missed as I was in situ at my local arcade playing SSFii or some bootleg Hyper version. (Remember the fireballs that would bounce across the screen?) 70 British pounds I paid for an extremely rare import copy of the first Sega Megadrive (aka Genesis) console. I then had to wait…
