Overdue Update.

My apologies for taking so long to update the ol’ blog. I’ve been busy of late, and unfortunately, just haven’t had as much time to catch up. Regardless, I did have an interesting event about a week and a half ago, so I thought I’d share.

Insert Coin(s) was hosting a podcast not too terribly long ago with featured guest Keith Robinson. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, Keith is the “big guy” of Intellivision from back in the day, and is still going strong now.

The podcast was supposed to start at 5:00 that night, but ended up starting more around 7:00. But really, it turned out very well for me, as I got to approach Keith, get my copy of Intellivision Lives! for the DS signed, and spent about an hour talking to him.

Getting to sit down with a “legend” like Keith, especially for that long a time is something that a gamer could only hope for. We talked about the state of gaming then and now, transferring Intellivision games(and its quirky controller) over to modern gaming consoles and experiences, the future of where he would like to take the games, handling licensing issues Read the rest of this entry

Why I Dislike Store Exclusive DLC.

Look at these costumes. For any Bat-fan, this is a treasure trove of history. But like most games today, they are all store exclusive pre-order DLC for Batman: Arkham City.

We’ll likely get the costumes at a later time, but they will undoubtedly be paid DLC. It happened for Mortal Kombat, so here we go again.

Do you remember a time where things like this were actually awesome in-game unlockables?
