In Case You Missed It: Google Games, Kinect SDK, and Duke Nukem Demo

Microsoft has put forth an official Software-Development-Kit (SDK)for would-be PC/Kinect hackers and software makers. This is no doubt a move to encourage game development for Windows, which makes sense since the next version of Windows, Windows 8, is said to come with XBOX Live included (watch for the anti-trust lawsuit ala the Internet Explorer litigation).

What kind of games or software do you think people will make with an officially supported SDK for Kinect? Security-ware? Perv-ware? Or just games?

But at least the toys actually looked fun… not that anybody was putting down their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to play with them. But still.

You have to hand it to a game like Portal; a game that manages to propagate itself so deeply into popular culture that even people who’ve never played it know what it’s about. The cake? Yeah, it’s a lie, as grandmothers across the globe are well aware. Portal is just that emphatic.

World’s Oldest Battlefield Player

June 23rd, 2011 by

This is what we all hope to be doing when we hit those twilight years. Or something like it, anyway. Kudos to Wacko Jacko, who at the age of 66 is still serving up whippersnapper ass on a silver platter. We wouldn’t be surprised if he throws in the occasional teabag, either.

FinalCutKing of YouTube fame has pieced together a stellar IRL re-imagining of Minecraft, reborn as a live-action first person shooter. We’re digging it.

You may have heard that some of the tracks from DOOM 1 & 2 were “inspired” by existing rock songs to a certain degree. Time to judge for yourself.
