Pinball FX2 Ms Splosion Man Table Review

Ms_Splosion_Man_screenshot018

I’ve played the hell out of Splosion Man, then Ms Splosion Man, and I fear to check the stats on how much Pinball FX2 I’ve played since that game came out. To help feed the addiction I have to that wonderful pinball engine Zen Studios has created, they keep releasing tables on a somewhat regular schedule. The latest is the combination of two of the best independent developers out there (my opinion), and that is a Ms. Splosion Man table. For 240 Microsoft Points this hot pink table can brighten up your pinball room as … [Read more...]

Drive Angry Blu-ray 3D Review

Drive Angry Blu-ray 3D

My daily commute has recently gone from 10-15 minutes to 40-50 minutes each way. Needless to say, I’m having to get friendly with talk radio. After particularly stressful days, I’ve found myself getting upset with the rush hour phenomenon. A few times I’ve even been on the verge of road rage -- and not The Simpsons videogame type. After one such recent commute, I noticed a Nicolas Cage Blu-ray 3D movie I’d been holding onto for just the right occasion. Well, that was the night; Drive Angry found its way almost … [Read more...]

HTC Trophy Windows Phone Review

HTC-Trophy-Feature

Microsoft has this knack of releasing products before their ready, so it’s OK to be skeptical of the latest batch of Windows phones. Sure, they include Xbox Live connections, but that promise comes from the company that launched Xbox Live a bit prematurely in the first place on the original Xbox, right? Or that five years ago at E3 promised mobile connectivity to the XBL community? Funny thing: Microsoft must have learned its lesson, because if the HTC Trophy Windows Phone is any indication of all the other Windows … [Read more...]
