Wonderpod is all new this week. I have no clue how to condense this episode into a short introduction. Things started off wrong and just went wild from there. There is a chunk of this show that is going into a top-secret storage bunker. Stored between the arc of the covenant and Half-life 3. We […]
Wonderpod Episode 196
Wonderpod rotates to a four man unit this week. There was a great audible slash quick change in this episode. Might have been comedy gold or comedy crap. That is the great thing about the show. Everybody can listen and decide from themselves. Some gaming and some movies make up the bulk of the show
Wonderpod Episode 195
Three dude’s recording in a canoe. Okay so that didn’t happen on this week’s Wonderpod, but wouldn’t it be cool. We gathered together last night and banged out a brand new episode. The internet gods were with us this week. So everything is back to as normal as we get.
Wonderpod Episode 194
Wonderpod is a quartet this week. This episode is a little wonky. We used every piece of tech, from phones to web cameras and good old fashioned computers to get it done. We hope to back to the normal recording rituals next week. Big thanks to Jon for handling the recording.
Wonderpod Episode 193
We are back and sporting a brand new episode of Wonderpod. Well okay most of us were here last week. My silly ass has joined the crew again. Mostly gaming this week, thinking we might switch it up next week. Enjoy the show!
I am having a good time exploring the Project Spark Beta, and as seen in my previous video from yesterday, I have been playing around a little bit with creating stuff of my own. But I have not yet attempted to make an entire creation, or game if you prefer, by myself yet. What I have been doing is checking out existing community users projects and games that already exist. You see, in Project Spark you can enter these games and play them. Not only that, you can also modify them and make them what ever you want them to be, if you so desire. You can be a player, a creator, a modifier or all of the above in Project Spark, and its pretty cool. So far I have just been checking out the user creations and not modifying them. They are Hit or Miss as far as quality goes, but fortunatly, there is a voting system that helped me to figure out what to give a try. I ” played” in a lot of different creations. Games inspired by LOTR, Zelda, Tetris and more. Plus some random FPS games and even 2D side scroller. The funniest one was a creation named “Just Waiting For Titanfall”, where all the game has is a massive ” titan” falling from the sky. Below are a few of the user games I played in. If I have time in the next few days, maybe I will try and make a creation of my own. Then again, Titanfall drops on Tuesday so there might go that idea. See you all on the flip-side. !
I am in yet another beta for yet another anticipated Xbox One title that I have been interested in for some time now. First it was the Titanfall beta, now Project Spark. I have to admit that while I understand the allure of games that allow you to build things, titles such as Wurm or Minecraft, I just don’t have the time nor the patience required to actually play games such as those. That is where Project Spark comes in handy. It allows players to create worlds with all sorts of characters , environments and buildings. But it allows them to do it at a much more fast pace. Now this video actually does not show me creating an entire game world, but it does show my first few mins in a cool mode that can almost be compared to a “choose your own adventure game” where you choose what to make and choose where to put it in your very own, custom game world. I look forward to checking out and playing IN other user made games tonight. I have seen some Zelda inspired games, 2D platform games and even a FPS game. Maybe I will post some footage of them later on, but for now, check out some early beta footage below and I will see you all on the flip side!

For the last few weeks I have honed my hunting skills. In doing so my adeptness with a sword and shield have grown tremendously. I bring more meat into the village than Mickie can easily use in a week. Beyond that, I have continued my study in carpentry and masonry. I find building to be a natural fit for me. Soon I may take on learning more fine skills when it comes to carpentry. Like furniture and barrel making. It feels wonderful to no longer be useless. My confidence has improved vastly since the fateful hunting trip Read more »
This time around for an MMO Dorking video, I decided to go with Wurm Online. A game I have played for over a year. The video is a tour of my main deed Rownsburg. You will get an overview of what a deed is like and how much I have managed to improve the place. Video quality may be a little wonky and I apologize. The edit was a battle this time around. Personally I blame java. Enjoy the tour
The temperature has dropped below -25C today and that can mean only one thing. Stay at home and play video games! Well, at lest after everyone has gone to bed that is. I am back with more Strider game-play footage taken directly from my X-Box One. Strider is a great action platform game from the past that I have only personally discovered now, all these years later. However, like many of those classic games of yesteryear, it can become frustrating and darn right hard at times. I have to wonder, am I just getting old and are my reflexes getting slow? Or, have games become way too easy as of late and do they just hold your hand all the way to the end ? Or maybe it is just a bit of both? Anyways, check out the footage below and I will see you all on the flip side!
This doesn’t look like the Olympics. There is no way this is Assassin’s Creed 4. I am fairly certain this is not hockey, so what in the hell is this insufferable crap on my television? Sigh, god damn Smackdown time, here we go… wee?
I have played more than my fair share of action /platformers in my game past. Yet I have never played Strider. That is until last week. And, for the relatively inexpensive price of 14.99, I am enjoying this title very much. The game has that classic old school feel to it while also having a great new ” HD paint job” to enhance its visuals and overall atmosphere. Unfortunately ,I don’t have any of those great nostalgic feelings when playing Strider, because as mentioned, I never played it in the past. However, at the same time, I am experiencing a great fun game form the past all these years later, for the very first time. And that in its self is very cool. Check out some game-play footage of me playing on Xbox One, and I will see you all on the flip side!
