Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


E3 First Impressions: Centipede: Infestation

Some developers take inspiration from classic franchises for their new titles, and others take those titles and try to bring them up to date. Still others, however, take their original inspiration and simply don't follow the source material. Centipede: Infestation is in the latter camp: take the inspiration and just do your own thing.

The game played very little like the original Centipede; instead of going back to the vertically-based battle of wills, the insects come from all over the screen to try and overrun a hapless exterminator. During the fight, shooting certain special enemies will unlock power-ups like flame-throwers and faster, stronger machine guns to help wipe out the army of buggers. It's more like a run-and-gun Robotron 2084 title now, the only thing seemingly tying back into the original concept being a boss that's essentially the original centipede.

The Centipede comes back in the holiday season of this year. It's still in the early stages, so hopefully the play tightens up and can do one of my favorite arcade titles some true justice. I just hope it's not shovelware in the end.
