#GetGeeked New York 2014: In Photos

By on Oct 29, 2014 in GetGeeked, Tech

On October 16th techies around New York were treated to a new intimate experience. GetGeeked showcased a bevy of brands and allowed attendees an opportunity to interact directly with two dozen familiar brands like Lenovo, Sling, Boogie Board, Western Digital, and Martian Watches. But GetGeeked wasn’t just simply a exhibition. Tucked away behind a few curtains was a small section for conferences that were also being conducted. This was an opportunity to delve deeper into the various brands on display. Even though the lines might have been long, and the venue was kind of hard to get to—GetGeeked was a unique experience that place brands directly with consumers. Events like that are always hard to find and are sometimes left to an exclusive few. Plus, did I forget to mention that the event was overall FREE to attend? The GetGeeked event is the brainchild of Barry Myers, the...

Fantasia: Music Evolved Review

By on Oct 22, 2014 in Featured, Game Review, Gaming, Gaming Main, Xbox Articles

Since the very beginning of music games, players have wanted to take control of the music in rhythm games rather than just playing along side of it. Games like DJ Hero and Rock Band provide very minimum control and stuff like Wii Music feel more like noise toys than an actual game.  Harmonix and Disney has finally struck a balance of customized music with gameplay in Fantasia: Music Evolved. Fantasia: Music Evolved tasks you, as the new Sorcerer’s apprentice, to do battle with an evil that has infected the world of Fantasia called “the Noise”. You must visit a variety of hub worlds and drive back the noise by conducting one of 30+ songs using the Kinect. Successfully meeting the challenges unlocks mini games within the hub world and remixes to your existing collection of songs. Those remixes are triggered at the player’s control during gameplay with...

SDCC 2014 Rewind: Skylanders Trap Team Overview & Exclusive Wolfgang Interview

By on Oct 9, 2014 in Featured, Gaming, Preview, San Diego Comic Con Articles, San Diego Comic Con Articles 2014

During San Diego Comic Con 2014, we got the chance to check out Activision’s upcoming Skylanders Trap Team™.  If you’re unfamiliar or new to the Skylanders franchaise, simply put Skylanders essentially created the Toys to Life™ genre of gaming. In previous Skylanders games, players would place figures onto a portal and play with said character within the game. Skylanders Trap Team goes a step further and allows players to actually do the inverse and trap characters into crystal figures. Skylanders Trap Team introduces a ground-breaking innovation that lets Portal Masters “trap” the most wanted villains in Skylands and then play as them in the game in the battle for good. The game offers an unprecedented new addition to the game’s play pattern in the form of Traptanium Traps. When this new type of toy is placed directly into the Traptanium Portal™, Portal Masters can...

R.A.G.E Review: Samsung Gear Fit

By on Oct 8, 2014 in Review, Samsung Related Articles, Tech

The battle for wrist real estate has been interesting and has seen its fair share of innovation and failure. Samsung jumped into the market with both feet by marrying a host of abilities into their first Galaxy Gear device. They crammed a camera and host of ancillary functions that, while impressive, lacked synergy and made their offerings seek a niche in multiple ecosystems. Fans who purchased the first Galaxy Gear were overwhelmed by the overabundance of features and before long I saw thread after thread expressing disdain for x feature or y feature. I covered the first Gear launch and at the time I was almost on the verge of pulling the trigger on the Pebble, but I wanted to wait because I wanted a device with a color screen and capability to monitor my sleep and fitness which the Pebble could do – but not in a way that made me want to buy the device. When Samsung launched the Gear...

Dance Central Spotlight Review

By on Oct 3, 2014 in Featured, Gaming

For months our Xbox® One just sat there. Sure, we would occasionally turn it on and then shout at our TVs to have the Kinect either “record that” or “unsnap” this and even sprinkle in a demand have it to “stop listening”. That’s pretty much all we were using the Kinect for which appeared to be a shame. We were patiently waiting for something that would make use of the upgraded camera and get us moving again. What we were waiting for was Dance Central Spotlight. I’m pretty sure that almost all of my dance moves are bi-products of Dance Central routines. It was the first game since Dance Dance Revolution that got me off my *ss and moving. With Dance Central Spotlight‘s release on the Xbox One, we can just pick up where we left off. Dance Central Spotlight is a downloadable title available exclusively for the Xbox One. With ten initial...
