GAMEX 2011: Info + Poll Results


Hello people! As you probably know by now, next week is GAMEX week. Which means a lot of coverage from the show floor, possible interviews and if all goes well, a daily podcast ala' the E3 Podcast from June starring us that are up there in Stockholm.

There might be another 8-bits or Tobbiinion! during the week, but in that case it will be tied to GAMEX somehow. Hit the jump for more info, including some of the games we'll have there and the latest poll results.

 I'm currently playing through RAGE on PC (low-settings mind you) for a future review, and I figured I'd get a little bit of an easter-egg hunt series going while doing so. So here's a guide to find the first hidden easter-egg in Id Software's RAGE.

GAMEX 2011: Announcement!


It's that time of the year again! Sweden's only proper Gaming Expo is once again upon us and we will be there bringing you the coverage from the show-floor. Every day of Gamex will be covered in a daily blogpost (and possible podcast) and videos will be posted as soon as possible based on the internet possibilities at the hotel. If we feel a certain game deserves its own article we will put it in a separate blogpost during the day we played it. To put it down simple, check this page during the first week of November to find everything you need.

Tobbii's Carchase in Driver: San Francisco


Full speed ahead my brother as we outrun the law in our crappy broken blue old wagon. Buckle up as I'll be slammin' that pedal right down to da' metal so that the ground can taste my thick rubber-sole!

*ahem* ... Review coming once I'm finished with the game.
