Time Rifters is an interesting take on first person shooters. Rather than ask you to play constructively with other players, they ask you to do it with alternate versions of yourself.
Hence the name “Time Rifters”
In order to give you a sense of how the game plays…. Its sort of like a combination of Mirror’s edge in the aesthetic, Portal 2 in solving puzzles with yourself, and a little bit of Crysis for the shooty part.

While we were fairly impressed with Oculus’ newest VR headset, it wasn’t the only company showing off a head-mounted display this year at CES.
As Sony’s newest update to its head-mounted display line, the HMZ-T3Q positions a 720p OLED display in front of each eye – which is approximately equivalent to watching a 750-inch screen from 65 feet away. Sony’s line of HMZ headsets have traditionally been used to create cinematic experiences and have come with an upscale piece tag of over $1000. However, unlike previous headsets, Sony’s new model allows for head tracking similar to the Oculus Rift.
Part of me is really excited about Oculus rift, its successor Crystal cove, and competition. So this should be interesting to see.
Though Im mainly waiting until the latest concepts fix the up-chuck and dizzy issues.
Like a GoPro, only different.
"Polaroid’s Socialmatic isn’t the only surprise to come from the faded photo brand at this year’s CES. The company also showed off a line of four action cameras, including an adorable new 35-mm cube camera called the C3. It will ship for $99 later this summer. For its small size, the camera is packed full of a surprising degree of features, including a 120-degree wide-angle lens capable of capturing HD video in 1280 x 720 and 640 x 580 resolution, and still images up to 5 megapixels. It’s waterproof up to 2 meters (6.6 feet), and contains 2MB of internal storage, and a micro SD slot expandable up to 32 GB. It also has a microphone and an LED light.”
Fresh from CES 2014 - Review on Razers latest flagship: Project Christine.
What’s the fuss? Christine is a fully modular design. Just plug in your latest component and you’re ready to rock/game/destroy the internet. All liquid cooled of course.
As Questionable as it looks
New Years is a Couple Hours Away….
As I’m writing this post 2014 isn’t far off, and Im pretty happy looking back at the past year. Its been a challenging year, but I made it. With no small amount of help from my friends. - Thanks for that guys.
Chupacabra’s Lair - Stuffs N Things
We reached 70 subscribers last week! HUZZAH! – It was my mini-goal to hit before 2014 claimed us all. So Im extremely happy and excited.
We have a couple projects in the works. Along with some similar stuff that has done well to date.
1) If you play League, Savrek is putting together a show for league strategy and game mechanics. Covering champion counters, simple warding, and other stuff we don’t see in the community.
2) MORE INDIE! Starting with “The Last Door” - If you havent seen it check it out. It’s very much like Kings Quest and other point n clicky discovery and adventure games.
3) Mystery Show with Wicked Loot - Prepare yourselves for super duper professional grade stuff!
4) I dunno - other games, early access, and Nether.
The Blog - I still don’t really like Tumblr - But I’ll keep trying….
The goal of this blog was less about what Im doing on Youtube and more about how. At least to start. By that I mean what I learn about the workings of putting stuff up on youtube, developing graphics, and marketing everything.
I have a couple posts and maybe a video on stuff like “Fair Use”, building a “Video Index”, and more on marketing and tools you get to help with the process. So if anyone reads for that, its coming.
