Alan Wake "The Signal", tip for early code redeemers

I have redeemed "The Signal" right when I purchased the game.
By then I was told I would get an email with a new code.This email hasnt come yet, BUT I was able to simply download "The Signal", as it was titled as "free" to me.Probably because I had already redemmed the add-on.So if You have not received the email with the new redeem code yet, just try the traditional way, go to the download and see if its "free".

Monkey Island 2 SE in App Store !

So I HAD to get my hands on the lite version of Monkey Island 2 SE for iPhone, and already after a few minutes with the game, I found two things: blurry graphics, and outstanding controls.
Bundled with great voices and the typical Monkey Island humour, this is a no brainer for anybody who can even REMOTELY appreciate a great, funny story, hilarious situations and weird characters.For adventures in sitcom style, it doesnt get any better than this !
Now if the character sprites were a bit sharper it would be the best iPhone game of the year for me !
Grab it now and start grinning along the ride !

William Shatner stole Leonard Nimoy's bike !

Priceless !

Bruce Willis: Smell Hard !

Well, well, first Harrison Ford wears an earring, now John McLane has a fragrance...this IS armageddon....

Twilight: For Guys!!

Finally ! It was about time...

Looking for new display

My old Samsung has bad problems with brightness variations in the corners, when I move a piece of artwork from center to corner, it gets darker and darker, very bad for judging.So I need input on what screens are good, and which ones have the best viewing angle and brightness values all across the panel.
Any ideas or suggestions or experiences are very welcome. I am tending to the HP ZR24W (with S-IPS panel)...but have doubts about the backlighting and brightness and stuff...

The Last Story Trailer

Wow, now this looks just great, Wii is finally getting some mindblowing visuals AND gameplay !

Amiga - Fire and Ice

Ahhhh, Graftgold, IIRC.Stunning visuals and too cute gameplay :D


Another technical AMIGA masterpiece, this time from THALION.
Back then, german games where technical leaders on the platform, a bit like Crytek today.

Mr. Nutz

Mr. Nutz was just a TERRIFIC game on the Amiga 500, technically up there with the best.
Multilayer parallax scrolling, tons of effects and sprites, Mode7-style 3D zooming and rotating, really, really
technically amazing, and the gameplay was like a mix of Super Mario and Sonic, gorgeous !
This one made the AMIGA truly shine, thanks to the masterminds at NEON.
