Gameknight logo

For those of you who may not have heard, as an effort to expand my web page coding skills more fully into the database-driven-web-app direction, I have created a website for my friends and I who play games every Wednesday Night over the internet.  The site, which I’ve titled “GameKnights” is a homepage for all we do, and is a fully built from scratch PHP/mySQL website with many tables and a growing list of features.

The site is exclusive at this time, and not open to the public, but those of you reading this blog who are curious about my web work should really check this one out, just to see how well it runs.  I am proud of it, and it gets better as the community continues to offer up their feedback and suggestions.

Quantum Theory: Gears of War rip off for the good or bad? You decide!

Monday, January 18th, 2010

So, this is a developer walk through of the upcoming 360/PS3 game “Quantum Theory,” which seems to have nothing to do with quantum mechanics and everything to do with ripping off Gears of War.   That being said, the chick he’s throwing at his enemies is pretty cool, though it’d be a lot cooler if she’s playable.

I dunno on this one.  I think it looks like it could be fun because I think Gears of War style games look fun pretty much all the time, but it also looks like it could be half baked in the end, especially if this AI controlled girl comes at the expense of Co-Op.

Anyway here’s the walk-through. You can find a bunch more TGS Quantum Theory stuff on Game Trailers if you’re curious.

You need to play this demo

VVVVVV demo on Kongregate.  2d-gravity-switching-platforming-amazement.  Also kick-ass soundtrack.  I will probably end up buying this.  The full version is like $15 buck.
