Happy National Rubber Ducky Day!

On this day in 1992, a shipment of 29,000 rubber duckies had fallen off a cargo ship in the Pacific Ocean, and were three days into their 17,000 mile ocean journey around the world on the ocean currents.

While no means necessary for playing the game, the Destiny companion apps provide an extra layer of interactivity in the world of Destiny. In this post, we’ll take a look at the utility of Destiny’s companion app for both users and Bungie.

[TUTORIAL] Endless Scrolling

E3 is going on right down the street. I stopped in yesterday to poke around and see what was going on in the world of video gaming. Instead of the outrage and frothing-at-the-mouth fanboy arguments, I thought I’d share what things I’m looking forward to because part of me was blown away.

The Power of Interactive Storytelling – The Walking Dead

Recently I had the chance to enjoy the surprisingly powerful “The Walking Dead” video game from Telltale Games. The game spans over five episodes based on the acclaimed comic series.

Today, I’ll be looking at how this game combined both to make a moving experience rivaling that of film.
