The Sinden Is a Light Gun for LCD TVs

The Sinden Is a Light Gun for LCD TVs
Among classic arcade and console games, light gun shooters are some of my favorites. The problem is that the technology used for older video game systems required the scanning beam of a cathode ray picture tube to detect where you were pointing the light gun.

Text-Based Multiplayer Shooter: Zork of Duty
Halo 4 just came out, and there’s never any shortage of multiplayer shooters available, but if you’ve already topped the leaderboard, fragged everyone, topped the fragleader or boarded everyone – my expertise regarding the current state of multiplayer combat games is, shall we say, non-existent – why not have a go at this text-based multiplayer shooter?

Why Young Kids Shouldn’t Play Online Shooters

Why Young Kids Shouldn’t Play Online Shooters
Little kids are easily influenced by what they see and hear. I hear that professionals recommend that parents keep their babies away from TVs until they’re two years old, but many parents don’t really do that anymore nowadays. 

PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew: Voice-Controlled Shooter

PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew: Voice-Controlled Shooter
What kind of game do you think would be awesome to play using voice commands only? Probably a military-type game, where you play a commanding officer. Or maybe a D&D game. I could think of a couple more, but I wouldn’t think of a voice-controlled shooter.

Uncharted 3 Amps up its Animation Prowess
When I played Uncharted 2, I thought it was probably the best cinematic gaming experience I ever had. The seamless transitions between scenes that would normally be dull, scripted cut-scenes and actual gaming action was truly innovative and immersive.

Fps Trainer: if You Really Really Really… Really Want to be Good at Fps Games

Fps Trainer: if You Really Really Really… Really Want to be Good at Fps Games
Back in the old days, I used to be a mediocre Counter-Strike player. I could like, take down a bunch of enemies before I myself was taken down. Sometimes I took down two in a 5-on-5 match; on a good day, I could kill two enemies and make it to the end of the round.

Hero Core: Nothing but Plain Old Fun

Hero Core: Nothing but Plain Old Fun
Indie developer Daniel Remar’s upcoming PC game Hero Core is just about as old school as shooters and platformers get. The game sports Game Boy-era black and white graphics, and pays homage to earlier incarnations of Metroid and Mega Man.

Xcm PS3 Light Gun is the Mutant Child of a Controller and a Gun

Xcm PS3 Light Gun is the Mutant Child of a Controller and a Gun
Maxconsole got a couple of videos from console-modders XCM showing the latter’s prototype light gun for the PS3. It’s basically half of a PS3 controller stuck to a light gun. I think XCM is shooting for a controller that’s compatible with all shooters, hence the need to come up with something with a sizable amount of buttons.
