Mark plays... Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing (My 1st-' ish' actually 2nd look)

Here I check out the PC version running on Steam (not H2O vaporized but the PC gaming platform by Valve) for the first-ish time. Actually the first video I shot of my 1st race went t*ts up so I had to reshoot it so this video basically is my 2nd look at the game.

I took a look at the sequel a little while ago. I know it is out of order but what can you do, that's just how I do things. So this game is a very cool racing game, 1st in a series at that, from the Sega stable. It was brought out on the Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS, Microsoft Windows , iOS and Mac OS X. Gameplay is very similar to games like Mario Kart, Konami Krazy Racers and Crash Team Racing. Everything is there Sonic and his pals, the blue Sega skies, the over-saturated colours, fast paced action. Love it!

Google Nexus - Unboxing

I bit the bullet and got myself a Nexus7, seems good value for money and it is an excellent way to experience the Android ecosystem.

The magically floating camera aka camera girl observed and registered! Enjoy.

Of course more will follow.

I Finally Kicked the Tires on GameTap...

GameTap for PCGameTap for PCFor those following the ongoing GameTap saga on Armchair Arcade, for instance here, I recently signed up and finally gave it a whirl. What follows are some stream of consciousness first impressions...

I got a chance last night into early this morning to play around with GameTap on my MAME arcade machine in between paying bills, backing up my main PC and working out (don't ask). If you remember, the arcade cabinet contains a fairly high end 1GB PC with a 128MB ArcadeVGA card (ATI-based) and 27" Wells Gardner arcade PC monitor. I have a regular mouse and keyboard inside the cabinet, but use the main control panel as my primary means of doing most things, save for typing. It has a plethora of buttons, three joysticks, a trackball and a spinner.

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of Doom Demo - First Look; Test Drive Unlimited; Ridge Racer 6

I had some time tonight to update the downloads on my Xbox 360 with the latest demos and Xbox Live Arcade stuff. Three games in particular that I got to try were "Test Drive Unlimited", "Ridge Racer 6" and "Blazing Angels: Squadrons of Doom". Only one truly stood out, and from the title of this posting, I think you can figure out which one...
