Steam OS



A new Linux based OS is coming straight from Valve headquarters called Steam OS which will of course be used to play Steam games.  Being Linux based I presume that the only games compatible with it out of the box would be Linux compatible games.  Gabe had shown his hatred towards Microsoft with its release of Windows 8.  Gabe then fired back with a Steam client which could be used on compatible Linux Distro's like Ubuntu.

I'm not sure how many people have been on the Linux bandwagon with Steam but is Linux the future I guess we'll have to wait and see.  There isn't many features that fly at the moment other then In Home Streaming and Game Sharing.  Game Sharing of course will allow you to share your account with other members in your family or friends you can trust.  While this is enabled your friends can play your games in which you can't for the time being.

Game sharing was actually to be something Microsoft wanted for the Xbox One but since has been removed do to its DRM policies.  Another feature states you'll be able to listen to music and watch tv and movies I'm not quite sure how this will work but being an OS it might be an open desktop environment.

At the moment there isn't much information other then some basics of what the OS will do but if you keep your eyes on http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/ you'll be notified with more information as it progresses.

Kinectimals coming soon for Windows 8



It was told at the launch of Windows 8 that Kinectimals was going to be released for Windows 8.  Well we hadn't heard much news about it for awhile and people were thinking that it might be cause Windows 8 is doomed and the Kinect might not be to profitable for the operating system.  That may or may not be true but I found today in the Games For Windows Live app for Windows 8 an icon for Kinectimals.  I clicked play to see if it was available in the store it isn't yet but should be with in the next few days.  This of course could be good news for PC gamers and bring more possibilities for PC gaming.  I'm just hoping that Kinect is going to expand out of the Xbox Live Games for Windows and can be featured in many other games for PC.

Xbox Ones Release Date



Xbox One has finally received a release date and it looks like people will be getting theirs on November 22nd of this year.  A lot of people earlier this year were not to happy about the system and that would include myself.  Most of the issues were of course surrounded at the systems DRM which meant your system had to be connected to the internet in order to play games.  That of course since has been pulled all users now can play there games without having an internet connection if they get the systems first update and you'll be able to play used games.

Other issues were that the system was forced to use Kinects voice recognition which a lot of people thought was foolish.  That has since been pulled from the system as well and the user has an option to either use Kinect voice recognition or use the controller.  What this will mean for the future of Xbox One would possibly lead to a price drop considering its almost $100 dollars more then the PS4 cause it comes bundled with a Kinect.  So lets hope everything goes well for the Xbox and everybody can get it November 22nd.

(UPDATE) Guess I could have included the price which will be $500 dollars so prepare to mortgage your home

Another Amazing Thanks to Justin Loebbaka



Well I have been having problems all week and today is slow for blogging for one reason.  I got this new board which seems to have issues with Windows 8.1 preview.  I thought everything was fine running with Windows 8 but 8.1 preview non stop issues.  The first i got this board it had paste on the socket so I had to clean it with rubbing alcohol and a tooth brush.  Then of course I had issues running copies of Windows I purchased cause they had OEM license restrictions to one board.  So I had asked for donations and I do feel bad about asking donations but there is things in my head that say its usually not bad idea to do so.

Well a buddy of mine Justin Loebbaka heard my cries for help cause he realizes that the work we do on the web is important he also realizes that donations aren't such a bad idea.  For me donations aren't bad but I guess it depends on the target audience.  People who aren't into electronics like me and others are may see pointless reasons for a donation.  For me to continue giving to an audience I obviously need to run a operating system.  Justin Loebbaka went out of his way and actually got me a copy of Windows 8 OEM and even gave me a bunch of other things I didn't even ask for.  Just wanted to thank him for this lovely donation this should hopefully get things up and running much better then they are currently.

Rad Raygun Getting a Possible Sequel?



Well of course I do my average viewing on Facebook and am joined to many developers group pages.  One of them of course is the developers for Rad Raygun.  I'm not sure if everybody has heard this yet but it looks like they are doing a sequel.  Its been stated on their group page that they are working with Majesco's Indie Label to develop the sequel which is called Super Rad Raygun.  If you haven't played the first game you should watch my review for it below.  There is no information what this is being developed for but it maybe released for the Xbox 360 seen as that was the system the first game was released on.  Rad Raygun does have a Greenlight program for Steam so make your vote here:Rad Raygun (Greenlight).  With that being said it may or may not get a PC port.

(Dreamcast Homebrew Download) Dopewars (SDISO)




In the early 2000's I was well known for one thing in the Dreamcast scene the annoying Dreamcast port requester.  However today i don't think of it as a bad idea cause if there is one thing these coders can be remembered by its creating lovely ports like this next game.  This game of course is a port of a popular game which was released for a variety of systems called Dopewars.  This was ported by Kamjin and your objective is to sell drugs and buy drugs and of course not get shot dead.  The longer you can buy and sell and keep yourself protect the bigger your score gets.  Of course yes this maybe not everybody's favorite game cause yes it involves drugs but it a highly addictive game.
