Blog Digital Idiot > My fondest (and worst) video game memory.

Posted 24 February 2010

In 1992, when I was 13, I was in a horrible car accident.

Driving 500 miles across Texas to get home for Christmas, my Mother fell asleep at the wheel and drove off of an overpass. The car bounced off the left side guardrail, hit the right side guardrail, mounted it, and rolled over it onto the highway 20 feet below.

The car landed in a heap, upside do...

Blog Digital Idiot > New Online Service to Offer Digital Trade-Ins

Blog Digital Idiot > Halo Reach Screenshots revealed, looks like Halo

Posted 20 January 2010

Earlier this morning EBGames.com.au mistakenly put up direct feed screenshots of Halo Reach. These are the same screenshots found in this month's Game Informer cover story.

Overall I'm not too impressed with the look of the game. Not much has changed since 2007's Halo 3 engine. I see some (slightly) higher resolution textures, additional geometry, and...
