Retro Report: Napster and the Culture of Free

In 1999, a file-sharing program created in a Boston dorm room sent shockwaves across the music industry and served notice that a major cultural shift was underway.

Napster a peer to peer music service founded by Sean Fanning & Sean Parker was at one point larger than AOL. Napster was the most disruptive thing the music business ever experienced, and years after the service was shuttered they are still dealing with seismic shift it has caused in there industry. Long gone are the days of “buying” music. Gen Y is a streaming generation, and one that doesn’t wanna cough up a dime to the industry.

This new music business has though given the power back to the [...]

The Fastest Production Jaguar Ever

This is the latest rendition of the famed F-Type. The Project 7 . (Which was just confirmed for production) Jaguar has packed this thing with a Supercharged V8 that pulls nearly 600 BHP. It can do 0 – 60 in just under 4 seconds and features a removable roof.

The only thing Jag got wrong on this was limiting the top speed to 183 MPH. It just debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, so expect more to hear more about it in the next few weeks.

Eat Here: Monell’s

As a California native, real southern dining is an experience that is unfamiliar to us Angelinos. I decided to immerse myself into a unknown culture to get a real taste of Nashville dining and visit a Tennessee hot spot. Monell’s is a restaurant, unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. As soon as you walk in the door, the atmosphere warms up your spirit seeing the vibrant smiles and welcoming staff presented at the front door. Now this is where it gets interesting. If you do not have a full party accompanying you, they take you and whoever you’re with, and add you to a table with complete strangers to fill up a table. Now that might seem a tad bit jarring, however [...]

Monday Blues: A Study on Monkeys

When it comes to life many humanistic qualities have been defined by monkeys in a more simplistic manner, and we can all learn from it. The saying goes, monkey see, monkey do, a fundamental aspect in human interaction and we overlooked it until we noticed it in primates. We can take a lot from them, and i came across this study, that perfect exemplifies human nature. Basically, in the beginning there is five monkeys in this room, and a ladder. At the top of this ladder, are a bunch of bananas.

Now heres where it starts to get interesting. Occasionally a monkey would decide to climb the ladder and grab a banana, however whenever a monkey went up the ladder, the other monkeys [...]

Top 5: Deals That Don’t Need Black Friday

Today, you may feel the need to get caught up in all of the “Black Friday” hysteria, but I assure you fellow gamer, there is no need. Pull yourself away from the media and the stores telling you what to do, walk outside and smell the roses, and the deals that have been surrounding you way before you had thought the word “doorbuster”. These are all great, content rich products that float around or below the twenty dollar mark, and now you don’t have to risk death to receive them.

Eat Here: Burger Up

FROM FRESH NASHVILLE

 

When it comes to good food, good people, and great vibes, Nashville, Tennessee is definitely the way to go. I recently arrived in this beautiful city a mere three weeks ago, and already I can tell you, I’ve had the best burger quite possibly in the world. On the first day that I arrived, I decided I wanted to have a delicious Nashville meal and asked a buddy of mine to take me to the best restaurant in our vicinity. Ladies and gentlemen, I am happy to say my first meal in Tennessee was an amazing place that you might know named “Burger Up”.

 

Now for those of you on the west coast, specifically California, (even more [...]

Master Chief is Finally Getting Patched Up

If you have been playing the Halo: Master Chief Collection for the past week you know that the online multiplayer has been plagued with sluggishness. Some users on Reddit reported that matches took up to 6 hours to find, and some people had no luck finding any at all. Hopefully these painful issues will be mostly cleaned up today with a new patch that will do the following:

 MATCHMAKING Addressed a number of issues that resulted in extended matchmaking times and low matchmaking success rates. Made a number of updates to how matchmaking progress is communicated to the player. With this update, you’ll see better, more frequent and more informative [...]

Batman Still Has His Easter Eggs

Batman Arkham City was full of fun little Easter eggs that called back to earlier games and comic book lore. But even after 3 years, more are still being found. Under a fake name, Rocksteady Studios (the developer of the game) posted a video hinting at a never solved secret. And what was that secret? Days, one day in particular, December 14th 2004, the day the studio was founded. If you set your PC or game console to that date and pay a visit to Calender Man in the Gotham Court you will get a special message.

I absolutely loved this game and played it until there was nothing left to do. Did you [...]

On The Defense: Alice Madness Returns

American McGee’s “Alice” is one of those lesser known games that really deserves a huge spotlight for its creative retelling of the classic Alice in Wonderland story. Though it does have a dedicated cult following, it still isn’t enough for this awesome game, take this as an official recommendation that if you want to really get into games, and their colored history, take a look at that particular product. But for today’s “On the Defense”, “Alice” is not the game in question, but rather “Alice: Madness Returns” the sequel to the aforementioned cult hit.

Step in Front of a Run Away Train

There are a few special perks to being a gamer. One of them being that If you are a gamer with any taste you know what it feels like to live in the Old West and fight through Texas and Mexico on a quest to cut your ties to your old life and live on in a more and more government ridden future towards a fleeting dream that you may never grasp. Red Dead Redemption. With a recent hint at a coming sequel and just to do it I played through this masterpiece over the week and just feel like I have to say something about it. So… it’s good…really, really, really good. If you have any form of respect for a well built game please play this (even though I really do hope most of you already have). [...]

This Awesome Chart Proves That We Have Run Out of Ideas

This is an amazing time to be a fan of super heroes, and even more-so a fan of superhero movies. Comic Alliance has thrown together a chart for your movie viewing future, ranging all the way to the year 2020! Its like a map, but instead of leading you to New Zealand, you find yourself going down a path of Extra Buttered glory.

 

Sadly gamers still have a lack of variety when it comes to good superhero games, but we can still play Batman: Arkham City over and over again…right?

Personally I feel as though this shows a lack of originality in the Hollywood, but I certainly will enjoy a lot of these movies, I just wish I was seeing big studios spend [...]

Deus Ex: My Game of Choice

Deus Ex is a name that makes many gamers recall some of their most treasured gaming memories. It is one of those games that you have to play after having a conversation about it. With its amazingly diverse game play and enthralling story, almost any gamer who knows of the game loves it. But it’s not just the fact that it did game play and story so well. It is also astonishing to think that before this game there was no game you could play and expect to have a huge amount of choice. I mean some would argue otherwise, but Deus Ex, in my opinion is the first game that really did choice in an engrossing way. RPGs always have had choice ever since the days of turning left or right in a [...]

PxlNaut Review: Tomee SNES USB Controller

I have always had a great respect for classic video games and enjoyed many of them on their original consoles. Some of the best games ever made called the Super Nintendo Entertainment System or SNES, their home. A lot of people know this and begin to become interested in finding a way to play these games. Now I hope most people would take the time to acquire the original console and buy the original game cartridges but alot of people don’t have that kind of time or that much interest in it. So they turn to emulators and roms, but really using a mouse and keyboard to play these classic games is doing them a disservice. They deserve to be played on a classic controller and you can get [...]

Top 5: Games To Play Before Halloween

It is October, horror is in the air and Halloween is on its way. This is the best time to find a girl, friend, or girlfriend to play some horrific video games with. I play a lot of titles in the horror genre looking for the next truly great one, and through my adventures I have found quirky, scary, and truly epic experiences. Here are my Top 5 games to play before the big day. And just a side note, I focused on current generation games that are more easily acquired than some older (yet still great) horror titles.

For those of you who are familiar with this game, you know it is a weird experience, and for those [...]

On The Defense: Splinter Cell Conviction

So I am going to try a new series of articles called “On the Defense”. The point of these articles is to take games that are generally dis-liked in the gaming community and show the bright side of them. Most of these games are just hated on because they didn’t live up to their own hype, but I want to show why they are still very enjoyable experiences. Today I am going to start with a game that many call the worst in its long running stealth series. That game is “Splinter Cell Conviction”. This game is bashed on in the Splinter Cell community for getting too far from its stealthy roots and not giving hardcore stealth players the sneaky Sam Fisher they know and love. But I am here to [...]
