I’m sure many of your are familiar with the term “Rage Quit”. Basically what it means is playing a video game, getting so mad at it and flipping out before quitting. I’m sure if you play games you have seen this happen or even done it yourself. It is hilarious when it happens. The guys over at Rooster Teeth (makers of the Red vs. Blue series) actually have a show called Rage Quit. In the show they have their subject Michael play very hard or difficult games till he flips out. A friend sent me a Rage Quit video a few weeks ago and since then I’ve watched everyone that they have produced.+Continue Reading

I got into the Steam for Android beta and thought I would share some screenshots with our readers! The interface is pretty slick. I’m a little annoyed that it feels more like an iPhone app than an Android app, but hopefully it’ll improve in future versions.
Upon sign-in, the user is presented with their friends list and can start a chat with anyone who is online.+Continue Reading
If you’re a casual poker player who likes to log on and play a few hands every week, pretty much any laptop, desktop, or even tablet device will more than suffice, especially if you just play one or two tables at a time.
For more serious online players, though, you’ll definitely need to pay a little more attention to your setup, as top players can easily log 500,000 or more hands over the course of the year. You’ll need a machine that can handle that sort of volume but also one that lets you play poker as efficiently as possible, with small improvements here and there adding up over that many hands.+Continue Reading

I’m not a huge PC gamer, I’m sure that if you have been reading the Gaming Friday articles you already know that. I guess that I have just been waiting for a good game to come out for me to really get back in to it. I was a huge fan of the original Battlefield series, I played it a lot during LAN parties and if you had a good group of people together it was a lot of fun. After the first game I really never got in to the other games in the series. Well a couple of weeks ago this video came out and I knew I had to check the beta out when it was opened up.+Continue Reading
Gears of War is one of the biggest franchises to be created during the current (7th) console generation. The first Gears of War launched back in 2006, the second in 2008, and the third in 2011. What started off as a simple war between humans and locusts, has spawned a trilogy of intense third person cover based gameplay.
The third installment of the Gears of War series picks up quite some time after the second. Epic has included a video to fill in the time gap between the two games, while also getting any completely new players caught up to speed. While that is all fun and gravy, the question is, how does Gears of War 3 differ from its predecessors?+Continue Reading
Before this week I could not tell you the last time I was actually excited for a PC game and the last time I purchased a PC game. Even when StarCraft 2 came out it was sort of meh to me. I had first heard of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine after someone showed me a gameplay video on YouTube. After seeing it I went right out and downloaded the demo which was available on Steam. I played the demo over and over again wanting more action! The game was released this week and I made sure to get it! Read on to find out more about this awesome 3rd person shooter!+Continue Reading
