gow2 logoMy last post about Gears of War 2, explaining the results of the last patch, was really a bit positive, and I still think that it’s better than it was, but some little things about the lag and matchmaking are a little bit different than I thought they were. (read more…)

xboxexpIt’s quite some time ago, nearly 5 months, since the new xbox experience was released to the public. It may be a little late to discuss it, but since it was such a huge change, and since the nasty side effects of it appeared to me after using it for quite a while, I still want to discuss it.  From stolen avatars to the slow xbox guide, here’s the new xbox experience.

About one and a half year ago, the Wii arrived in stores. It promised a whole new way of controlling your games, slightly better graphics than on the GameCube and even online options, making it a worthy “next-gen” console.
