    Microsoft Press Conference First Impression 

    ============================================================================

    Read or Have It Read To You : The 8BitComa Initiative

    ============================================================================

    ============================================================================

    MS aka the Many Sequels press conference started off by showing us something that we are all already tired of…. sequels. Halo 6 dropped onto the screen, as they tried start it all off buy putting people into shock, but only seemed to ignite a spark.

    the rest of the conference was a sequel palooza and ended up putting many of us to sleep, sort of if we where being forced to watch a marathon of the most boring show ever by our father…. BOY. Until, OUR HEARTS STARTING RACING, OUR MINDS COMBUSTING and it… wasn’t SKATE 4…….. yeah.

    But looking pass all the 4’s and 5’s, their did seem to be some pretty awesome gems hidden inside, including a hand made game, that was previously seen on Kickstarter and hopefully soon to drop onto our gaming systems. but Harold Holibuts wasn’t the only game hidden in the attack of the clones, their was also Planet Alpha and Sable, which will mostly be must pick ups on release. 

    When it comes to the AAA game, the only one worth mentioning, that came out punching, with a hard side swipe was Jump Force. It was unexpected and had people getting off their seats to try to get a closer look, that if what they where seeing was real.

    MHA ;You Are 

    Buddy Project feautred image

     May is one of my favorite months of the year for the reason that it is dedicated to the education on a long overdue issue. An issue we still haven’t a cure for. Sure we might not have the serum to wellness, But we have solutions. Such as the one The Buddy Project brings to light and that is Friendship. Not everyone is educated in Mental Health or invested in caring, so it’s good to know that there is a place out their, where you can reach out for help and be paired up with someone who is fighting or has fought with what you are going through today.  You Are Loved.

    You are more than meets the eye and this organization is out their to prove it. And for the month of May you can show your support for this great cause by picking up a shirt that will not only help the Buddy Project organization, it will also help mental health facilities around the United States as well.

    MHA : Branching Out 

    Juan says things branching out

    Mental Health Awareness to me is something I feel needs to be embedded into our society and into our class rooms. So people can finally understand the illness, the torture and the symptoms that we struggle with each and every day. It can be as small as the Sex Ed course they had us take in elementary school. Because the size of the stadium we present these issues at is not what is important, what’s important is that we as a community touch on the subject even just a little. Because that one conversation can save the life of the family member you are speaking with right at this moment or the friend you hold close to your heart right across the street.

    OnLive Continues Their THQ Deal Week With… 

     

    MX VS. ATV REFLEX!

    First off, I’d like to apologize on behalf of the ENTIRE 8BC crew for not being as swift with our news as we used to be, the majority of us are absolutely slammed with other priorities at the moment and we hope to get these matters resolved so we may go back to our usual regimen of making your minds cum on a daily basis.

    Slightly perverted-undertone apology aside; today on OnLive, you may/will purchase Mx Vs. Atv Reflex for a mere 5USD. Now I’ve been on record as saying that I “will forever miss the Mx VS. Atv series” and that still holds true. So.. to honor one of my most favorite racing franchises of all time. I, Shawn, not as an editor, not as an omnipotent being that blesses all of you (except for when Full Sail insists  that I cram my head full of knowledge, damn you Finite Math), not even as the perverted savior of many social networks, but as a gamer celebrating all of the joy this franchise gave me, will buy Ms VS. Atv Reflex through OnLive and aggressively play the hell out of the online multiplayer. I hope to see all of you OnLine (HA, you see what I did there. Whooo I am a hoot and a half) with me.

    My player tag on OnLive is “supermave” (sans quotation marks) please mention 8BC in your friend request. 🙂

    And if you don’t mind, I’m just going to leave this game play footage here, I assure you it has absolutely no ulterior motives or deceptions to entice you to buy the game and join me online *inconspicuous whistle*.

    As always, thank you for reading *and watching the video, I KNOW YOU DID* Feel free to Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter. Also, if you’d click that nice little “follow” button on the bottom left hand corner of your screen, that would make me really happy. 😀

    Indie 2D Bundle on Steam Saves you 80% 

     

    Steam, I have to tell you something, I love you. Okay now that all of the sappy stuff is out of the way; I think it’s time to let all of you know that you can get five stellar games for $10. MADNESS right? WRONG! This isn’t MADNESS, THIS.. IS.. STEAM! *kicks over road cone*. All humorous banter set aside, here are the five titles you WILL get when you purchase Steam’s “Indie 2D Bundle”:

     

    1. BIT. TRIP RUNNER
    2. NightSky
    3. NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits
    4. Swords and Soldiers HD
    5. World of Goo

    If you STILL think this isn’t a great deal, for some inane reason, then here’s another price breakdown (straight from Steam)

    Individual price: $49.95

    Package price: $49.95
    Limited Time Offer: -$39.96
    Cost to you: $9.99
    You save: $39.96
    Well there you go. Now get your pessimistic, judgmental wallet over to Steam (link included, now you can’t say I never helped you out) and buy this awesome bundle!
    You have 51 hours and 29 minutes left (as of this typing)
    As always, thanks for reading, tell us what you think of this awesome bundle in our comments section below, Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twiter.

    OnLive Lands in the UK This Week 

    This week, very ambitious and omnipotent, omniscient cloud gaming service, OnLive is going to land in the UK and rock its knickers off. And since this way of obtaining and playing games may seem very confusing  to some people, I’ve decided to post some helpful videos and answers from OnLive’s page. There will also be a link for you UK residents to go and check out the service for yourself after all of this helpful text is out of the way.

    What is this ‘cloud gaming’ thing anyway?

     

    What do I need to get started?

     

    That’s all well and good, but do you have a neat little OnLive overview?

    That’s a lot of American pricing. What will I pay in the UK?

    We don’t have official word on how it’ll all convert into Pound Sterling. UK pricing will be detailed in full later this week.

    Does OnLive stream PC versions of games?

    According to OnLive’s VP of Games & Media John Spinale, “Yes” although he told us that the games are modified into an OnLive version of their PC counterparts. “But at the core of our game servers is essentially a PC architecture,” he emphasised saying that OnLive games do look better than the console versions.

    What about lag?

    OnLive admits that your game won’t run as fast as if it were hosted on a server in your home but it does work to keep latency as low as possible “hopefully to the point where you don’t notice it.”

    “At this stage in OnLive’s technology evolution, most OnLive players report that they experience no latency or acceptable latency. But, some players will find the current latency unacceptable in some games.”

    It continues to say that it’s always working to reduce latency even further all the time but the best way to find out how well the system runs in your home is to try some demos. All games in the OnLive library can be played for free for half an hour.

    Should I go with a particular broadband provider for best results?

    OnLive has partnered with BT in the UK. You don’t have to be with BT to play OnLive but it will be working with the cloud-gaming company and optimising with OnLive in mind.

    Can I play over WiFi?

    The OnLive micro-console itself can only be used over a wired connection using an Ethernet cable. You can of course use a wireless connection when playing OnLive on your PC or Mac using the OnLive app.

    If you don’t have an Ethernet port close enough to your TV to use the OnLive micro-console, you can create a network bridge using either a Powerline Adapter (using mains plugs to bridge the gap), a Coax Bridge (using TV aerial port) or a Wireless Bridge (using two wireless routers).

    Does it have decent developer and publisher support?

    “Almost all publishers and developers are on board,” says OnLive also pointing out that independent developers will be just as well represented as the big boys thanks to the ability to self-publish digital distribution provides.

    “There’s a large number of people on the platform right now and the vast majority of third-party games as they come out going forward will be on OnLive pretty much day and date,” says the cloud company.

    Where do I sign up?

    Register your gamertag at http://www.onlive.co.ukwhere you’ll be able to download the OnLive app for PC or Mac or order the OnLive micro-console at launch. Watch out for news on retail partnerships coming shortly.[ Source: OnLive ]

    As always, thanks for reading. If you have any more questions feel free to leave them in our comments below. Feel free to Like us on Facebook and or stalk all of us on Twitter. Once again, thanks for reading.

    Happy 12th Birthday Dreamcast!!!! 

     I remember when I first laid eyes on you……It was when I fell in love even though i didn’t get to play you, because my cousin was a spoiled dick who got every console and never shared. I knew….. that you loved me the way I loved you even though we never got to hold hands until early 2011 when i picked you up for $10 at the flea market. I cried, I fapped and I turned you on. Holding your big bulgy wide controller in my hand as my undercarriage got damp and wet…. I still remember the first game I played on you it truly evolved me as a gamer. That day you can call it a evolution if you’d like and also the name of the game was Evolution. I played non stop for hours! I didn’t think the world could get any better and I was right because hours in the game froze because it was scratched!!!! Quickly our love started to fade until I visited the same place I found you and picked up some supplements that would get our marriage to once again work. With the help of the male enhancements known as Powerstone and Fighting Force 2 our love came back with a vengeance and we lived happily ever after. After you’ve finished reading my Oscar award winning story (better then the Notebook) check out the marathon Dreamcastjunkyard had on YouTube. I salute you Junkyard Kid……..with my penis……….SEGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Much Love JT
