So I am a gadget head and frequently cycle through phones. I don't go for traditional phones or trendy ones. My first non-standard phone some time ago was the Motorola V80 which was a really cool swivel phone with some cool tricks.

My next phone was a pretty cool Motorola Rizr phone. More functional and professional then the V80 and a pretty slick matte blue color. I love this phone, but it is just too limited.

I needed a smartphone, but one with a large screen and a full keyboard. But I also need a cool looking phone. That was a tall order and with a decent tax return in hand I started researching it and decided on the HTC Touch Pro. This is a great phone with more functionality and features then you can shake a stick at...some highlights:

Processor - Qualcomm® MSM7201A™ 528 MHz
Operating System - Windows Mobile® 6.1 Professional
Memory ROM - 512 MB
RAM - 288MB
Keyboard - Slide-out 5-row QWERTY keyboard
GPS - Internal GPS antenna
Connectivity - Bluetooth® 2.0 with EDR
- Wi-Fi®: IEEE 802.11 b/g
- HTC ExtUSB™ (11-pin mini-USB 2.0, audio jack, and TV Out* in one)
Main camera - 3.2 megapixel color camera with auto focus and flash light
Second camera - VGA CMOS color camera

And much, much more. After 7 unsuccessful bids on Ebay I finally won one. I'll have it in less then a week and I am very, very excited.

Cool Concept Art

In other gaming news I am a sucker for a great concept picture, this one from the upcoming Bethesda Softworks game Wet was just too cool for school:



Well the game is launching soon and it is described as a highly stylized 3rd person action game. Shoot anywhere, anytime gunplay (think Stranglehold) combined with sword fighting and amazing acrobatics. The story is supposed to be zany, serious and gory, plus the main character is ridonculously hot. I like any game that can turn the concept image above into a near perfect in-game model below. There is a demo live on the UK PSN store, gonna try it tonight!

Belated PAX East 2017 Coverage Roundup - Part 3

More PAX East coverage - there are always tons of things to see and do at a PAX show and the highlight of this days coverage was an ultraviolent game called Ruiner.  It is out later this month and I can't wait to try it again!
Enjoy the continuing coverage I put out while attending the show for Blogcritics.org
PAX East Boardgame Review Final War
One of the best things about PAX is the fact that tabletop experiences are as prominent as the videogames; this year at PAX East I had a chance to try out a Tactical Card Game called Final War.  This is from a passionate group in Australia called Games Lab and it is a complex experience that blends Magic the Gathering with Dungeons and Dragons to deliver a tabletop experience that was incredibly deep but also very fun to play.
Final War is a dense game, with a large game board reserved for each player’s forces; the game can be enjoyed by 2-3 people in the current iteration; an expansion later in the year will enable a fourth player. In the ga…

PC Game Review: ‘Thumper’ from Drool

Thumper from Drool is a hard game to describe. The developer calls it a rhythm violence game, but I look at it as a psychotic merging of Rex and Audiosurf with the stylings of Tron. The game is out now for PSVR and plain old 2D on a regular screen and it is a hell of a ride in any format. Drool has announced that HTC Vive and Oculus Rift support will be coming later this year as well.
I had experienced Thumper before at PAX East where I was lucky enough to try an extended playthrough on the PSVR hardware. This time I played through the frenetic levels in 2D to see if the game is as much fun without the VR experience and I can easily say it is still very enjoyable because of how frantic and aurally strong it is.

In Thumper I controlled a sleek ship resembling a metallic bug as it zoomed and twisted through insane kaleidoscopic backgrounds trying to reach the end of each themed level where a boss awaits.  The term “a rhythm violence game” means there is music, but not music you could iden…
