There”s three things I learned from our day at KublaCon; testing new games is awesome, a new marketing tactic should be implemented, and James is truly one lucky bastard…emphasis on bastard or really any word that could possibly encompass the lucky breaks this guy gets in board games. We”ll get to that in a bit though.
KublaCon 2013 (San Francisco, CA) offers a sanctuary for lovers of dice, tactics, and game miniatures. There”s hundreds of board games being played simultaneously in main lobbies and in more private rooms for those that hate natural light and may or may not feed on human flesh. Games included my favorites Battlestar Galactica and Game of Thrones and many games of Settlers of Catan and many miniature war dice games that included amazing game environments (full battlefields, miniature cities, barren wastelands). There”s also plenty of different types of games that aren”t just for the hardcore or scifi-ish nerdy gamer. An aspect of this Con that needs to be addressed.
As much as I want to bag on this technology and talk about how we have this endless need to share worthless crap, I just can’t. You can rip on it for everyone is going to look like Jordy from Star Trek TNG, but you know what…Jordy was fucking cool so why wouldn’t you. I’m not sure how much I would want to wear this considering I know how much I either lose or break a pair of sunglasses, but I would definitely want to give these a shot as long as the price tag is not crazy. Would you wear these Nerdosphere and what would you wear them for? I think our first video would have to be a Google hangout for lucky fans to follow us in our Comic Con adventures.
Update: Slated for an early 2014 release, developer editions are priced at a whopping $1,500. The BDNS will be taking donations soon enough so you can follow our movements. So pony up that cash cheap skates haha.
Disney is creating the game below, Disney Infinity, and it makes me want to cry tears of absolute joy. A sandbox game in nature and this pretty much sums it up:
The big thing Disney is banking on here is earning a constant cash flow which is similar to DLC, but much more creative in my mind. Pretty much just watch the trailer below and start thinking about which characters you want to play with and what types of things you want to build. For more details check out San Jose”s .
Two fine gentlemen got the okay from Pixar to make the full length recreation of Toy Story using stop motion and their toys from the movies they have collected. I mean how does this act of nerdery not just make you smile. Kudos to these guys and way to be a sport Pixar.
See that in the title? I still spelled cock hehe. I’m so damn clever, but not as clever as this f!@# from MIT thinks he is. He has invented ice cubes that tell you when they think you’re drinking too much. Seems to me from this video it just counts to three and then blinks red. Three drinks? 3!? F that. Sorry I’m not drunk after 3 drinks, especially if I’m just hangin have some light beers. This doesn’t pick up alcohol content, just the amount of times you drink. These frozen mistakes as will text your friends warning them when they think you’re in trouble. This would be more annoying to my friends than a Farmville invite. Apparently this came about when this MIT student had a night he couldn’t remember and ended up in the hospital. Just live and learn dude. I mean if this incident already freaked you out enough to invent these I’d say you learned your lesson. If you’re trying to prevent this from happening to others then good luck. After 3 drinks most will think they’re not impaired yet and will continue to drink and say, ‘F these ice cubes, I just wanna dance with my girls.’ Riddle me this MIT student; if you’re trying to stop girls (people in general) from drinking to much, how are you ever gonna get laid? Oh snap! Up Top! *Self high five was awarded*
The video below is for Microsoft”s . Just a concept video, but the more I watch what they”re trying to sell here the more I feel like an old fart. Am I wrong to hate all these new ways to expand gaming past the television? 3D is the worst and now there”s going to be lights and shitty graphics on my walls and furniture around me? I feel like the Grinch right now. I”m not the only one here on this perch right? Someone make me feel better about myself without having to pay you.
