Oh man, watch the video above for Machinarium, by Amanita Design. It has a retro-Sierra look that makes me extremely nostalgic for the PC games that I used to play as a kid. It seems to be a point-and-click styled adventure where you guide a little robot across a giant steampunk themed metropolis and is slated to come out on the PC later this year.
I normally don’t get excited about PC games but, this kind of game is right up my alley. I think myself a guy who doesn’t normally hype upcoming games, but I have a feeling that this will be a smash hit this year. This will also probably be the main reason I get a new computer this year (well, that and Left 4 Dead). Keep your eyes peeled here at MWN as we bring you more as we hear it.
I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
