Time For Some Humor I Think

(HIGH BANDWIDTH BLOG, avoid if you aren't on wifi!) I'm having stress issues, so rather than commenting on the latest drama I decided to put together another compilation of my goofy memes, images, screenshots, etc. Yeah, I'm ...   more



Steam Grid View - Making and Using Custom Images

The Joy of Steam's Grid View I made several for this game... and I don't even own it yet. For years I neglected the "grid" view in Steam – I preferred the "detail" view because it seemed easier to navigate. Last winter, th...   more



Square Enix - Sellout Sh*tbags

It was revealed this week that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be coming "exclusively" to the Xbox One. I put that in quotes because the phrasing of the announcement left it open for the game to release later on other platfor...   more



Transistor - Custom Images For Steam Grid View

I made a batch of custom images to use in the larger Steam grid view for Transistor. The default image is okay, but not terribly exciting: To use a custom image for a game in the large grid view, just right-click on it and...   more



The Steam Controller: Shut Up and Listen

Since the announcement of the Steam Controller last Friday, I don't think I've seen so many otherwise intelligent people say so many ignorant things. Just look at this moron. While I'm sympathetic to having a negative gut r...   more

I've been meaning to make this guide for a long time. I get a lot of great deals on PC games, and I want to teach you how to do it, too! It's part strategy, and part knowing where to look. To that end, this blog starts off wi...   more

GTX760 4GB OC - Unboxing & Mini-Review

  So I picked up a GTX760 4GB OC this Monday. I didn't really need it, but I tend to buy stuff for my PC when I'm badly depressed – and September is a very bad month for me (no, not 9/11). If you came here to troll about PC ...   more

What PC Gaming Really Costs

I'm getting tired of people telling me how expensive PC gaming is. If it was, I'm pretty sure I'd know, seeing as I've been a PC gamer for 15 years. So I decided to write a blog to set the record straight. To that end, I tho...   more



Game Soundtracks Part 1: You Have More Than You Think

I've been on a game soundtrack kick lately. Since my ex-girlfriend died two years ago, I have had difficulty concentrating and it's made getting schoolwork done almost impossible. Listening to game music seems to help, thou...   more

Make Blogs Not War

This started as a blog about me personally, but I think what I've learned – that blogs are a better place for debate than article comments – applies to everyone.   Those of you who know me well on here – by which I mean fro...   more



Mortal Kombat Komplete PC - initial port impressions

So far it looks like a well-done port. Everything you expect is there, including improved visuals and local multiplayer. Online is one thing I did not get to test yet. I experienced performance issues on one stage, but have...   more

Sega's Classic Franchises: Could They Be Brought Back? (pt. 2)

Some of Sega's Classics Reimagined for Next-Gen If you missed it, you can check out Part One of this blog here. In it I talk about how Sega has abandoned a lot of great IPs, and some formulas that might be used to reboot t...   more

Sega's Classic Franchises: Could They Be Brought Back? (pt. 1)

Why has Sega abandoned some of its most popular older franchises? And what could they do to bring those classic series into the 2010s? The Genesis and Dreamcast, icons representing some of Sega's greatest work. One of my f...   more

Sweaty Hands & Gaming - An Actual Solution

One of the most frustrating things I've dealt with as a gamer is sweaty hands. I'm guessing it's a problem for a lot of people, considering companies have gone so far as to make controllers with fans in them to help keep your...   more

Kinect and Xbox One - Problems and Concerns

While Microsoft has done a 180 on its DRM policies for the Xbox One, Kinect remains a pack-in item that is required for the system to run at all. Yet very few games have been announced for it, its non-gaming uses are dubious,...   more

PS4 Saves Consoles For One More Generation?

After Microsoft's wretched handling of the Xbox One, I wasn't surprised to hear that Sony "won E3" today. But I don't think that's the biggest story. Looking at the PS4 as a complete package, what's broadly important is that...   more

Complicity: The Unique Storytelling Power of Videogames

*Spoiler warning* This article contains major spoilers for Bioshock Infinite and minor spoilers for Tomb Raider. Can videogames tell stories as well as books or movies? If so, do they have their own unique strengths in tha...   more

Original Memes, Humor, & Closeups by Jinx

Over the last couple years I've ended up making quite a few game memes. Since they are original and most of you haven't seen them I figured it might be fun to share. They are slightly biased toward PC gaming, but... well, the...   more

Indie Gems by Jinx - Steam Indie Spring Sale Edition

With Steam's Indie Spring Sale going on, I thought I'd highlight some great indie titles I've played that seem to get overlooked. I have included mini-reviews for each, plus media and links to make checking them out quick and...   more

PS4: What Does 8GB of DDR5 Mean For The System?

While most of the system's specs leaked ahead of time, the big surprise at Sony's PS4 event was the inclusion of 8GB of *DDR5 RAM (GDDR5, actually; I abbreviated it for this article). While the quantity was a surprise, the ...   more



The PS3's RAM Bottleneck

(This article was originally posted under my old nick, Cryotek, around August 2010. I'm reposting it because it still has relevance and anticipated the PS3's issues with Skyrim in a way. It also leads into an article on the P...   more

The Wii U GamePad Conundrum

From Nintendo’s Wii U page. Apparently the console exists only to prop the GamePad up. Pedrovay wrote a short blog earlier today regarding the Wii U's controller, asking us to stop using it to criticize the system (you mig...   more

Why Next-Gen Development May Be Cheaper

*rework of previous blog I did under the nick ‘cryotek’* A frequent argument against new console hardware is that it would put a huge burden on developers. Many AAA titles already have budgets in the tens of millions, and ...   more
