Apple

The Silliest Cult in the World

Ste.-Anne Boardwalk

I’m not one to tell people what they should do or how they should behave (even if this site is dominated by video game and movie reviews) but this Apple nonsense has got to stop. The insanity that takes place whenever Apple releases a new product is getting quite absurd. Considering that Apple hasn’t done anything significant since the iPod Touch (other than give it phone functionality or crush it with a steamroller), the company that is supposed to be so cutting edge is relying heavily on a market of drones that will buy anything that the company produces.

  • Jamie Gore and Chris Karpyszyn
  • Thanks to Chris’s mic doing its best Barry White impression and other assorted wackiness, the podcast is a bit late.
  • Lots of news though. Although none of it seems worthwhile. The moral of the story was GDC was a waste of everyone’s time.
  • Let me put it this way…I was holding back when I said how upset I was about the PSN crap that has been coming out for the PSP. I’m still anticipating angry e-mails from ticked off Sony fanboys.

Roundtable Podcast #005 – Portable Gaming

Roundtable Podcast #005 – Portable Gaming  <56 mins (25.6 MB)>

  • Rounding out our series of discussions on console-based gaming, Chris and I talk about the various portable systems on the market: the DS, PSP, and even the iPhone. Actually, the podcast wasn’t even supposed to be about the iPhone but it ends up taking up a large chunk of time as we talk  about both the possibility of it being a DS killer and how it may be a horrible platform for gaming. We mention the PSP as well and all its potential it squandered away.
  • Next week’s Roundtable Podcast we will be discussing state of PC gaming and probably gush about how we love Steam. If you have any questions or comments for us, send them to madnessbrewing@gmail.com and we’ll get to them on air.

Windosill (Video Game Review)

Video Game Review
Windosill
Windows/Mac
2009
Developer: Vectorpark
Publisher: Vectorpark
Website: http://windosill.com/

If you were to play Vectorpark’s Windosill in full, you would have enough time to cook a frozen pizza if it was already half-cooked. Windosill feels more like a demo more than a full fledged game. It wouldn’t be so bad if the game brought something to the table. Unfortunately, it is forgettable and a mindless time waste while you wait for your pizza to cook.
