Heavy Gaming on a Budget

Some of us like games.  Some of us love games.  Some of us get sucked into our TV and become one with the games… Then there are us who are addicted to games.  If we don’t get our fix of the latest and greatest games we get the sweats, we can’t focus at work, we […]

Today, Gaikai stepped up to the plate, revealing that their service would go live before the end of the year. CEO David Perry, of Earthworm Jim and MDK fame, stated that Gaikai would be […]

Dave Perry’s Gaikai – Servers on Demand

Dave Perry on Gaikai’s 2010 Release

Dave Perry’s Been a Busy Man

Ever since his Earthworm Jim days at Shiny, I knew that we were always going to revere the name of Dave Perry. Now that I’ve seen an example of the new fad of ‘cloud computing’ through his Gaikai application that requires NO downloads and NO plug-ins (can’t say the same thing can you On-Live?). I’m […]
