The House of Hitstun

Prof.Sakamoto

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016 at 1:44 am | Audio

Prof.Sakamoto makes soundtracks to imaginary NES games. He’s nailed the sound of a classic RPG, a space shooter, and couple days ago, a ninja action game. I hope someday he’ll follow in Jake Kaufman’s footsteps and work on an actual game.

Destiny Potato

Look at the bands I listen to. I’m not picky. If they’ve got heavy riffs, serious skills, catchy melodies, and good variety, I’m in. Posting your entire album online helps too. Serbian rock band Destiny Potato hits on all sixes. Potatoes gonna potate.

GeekNights – Pokemon Go: Initial Thoughts

Thursday, July 28th, 2016 at 3:30 am | Audio

Pokémon GO is getting my whole groups of my friends outside with Pokévision on their phones. That’s great, but as GeekNights podcast explains, there isn’t any skill or strategy in the game right now. Everything is a grind that takes exponentially longer as you go on. Battles are won by whoever has spent the most time playing the game, and that’s not going to change when more features are added. At least Ingress has teamwork going for it. Watch out for Team Rocket?

I almost made a post without an image or a video in it. This post would have looked weird without one. Always be aware of your surroundings, folks.

Chon

Is it my turn yet? I think we all could use something relaxing. Chon is an instrumental band that plays math-rock riffs like Dysrhythmia, but they’re…chill. They’re even cool enough to post an entire album on YouTube, so dig right in.
