  • 3 new Sonic Chronicles videos, now with terribly useless narration!

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=39541 My hopes for Sonic Chronicles are remarkably high. I mean, come on – it’s Sega’s attempt at recreating the glory that is Super Mario RPG with the Sonic cast, and it’s made by Bioware, the only company to make an RPG worth playing since 1997. Sega/Bioware released 3 new videos today: an introduction, a gameplay video… Read More

  • Qik adds support for HTC devices, SE XPERIA X1

    Even after having Qik on my iPhone for a month, I get the worst friggin’ case of stage fright every time I hit that record button. I have no problem being in front of an audience; nor do I generally mind cameras. But there’s something about streaming live to the internet that turns me into a babbling fool. That said, there are probably plenty of folks out there with more e-courage… Read More
