Google I/O is a huge annual industry conference where Google typically unveils mind-blowing new products related to Android devices, Google Glass, etc. — as well as a number of technical sessions focusing on programmers who work with Android, e-commerce, Google Maps, advanced web development, and much more. Google I/O also produces a few less technical topics as well. Google I/O Extended is coming to San Antonio for the 1st time, thanks to Geekdom and Sweb Development, from May 15 to May 17, and The PractitioNERD will be here for the main keynote address on May 15th. NERD ON!
When Sony officially announced the PlayStation 4, all I had to say in reaction was: Dang it, Sony; just shut up and take my money!
Back on Wednesday, August 29th, I was in attendance (with VIP access, because I “rolls” like that) at the first-ever, open-to-the-public GameStop PowerUp Rewards EXPO at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas, which marked MY VERY FIRST GAME CONVENTION EVER!! Plus, I got my chance to finally meet WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler (after calling him out on Twitter). The videos below contain images and footage of games I’ve seen and/or played, from:
Sport Champions 2, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal, God of War Ascension, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Dishonored, Ni No Kuni, Injustice, Assassin’s Creed 3 (& Liberation), Rayman Legends (on WiiU), Nintendoland, Dead of Alive 5, Halo 4, Little Big Planet Karting, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Tomb Raider, Hitman: Absolution, Aliens: Colonial Marines, WWE ’13, and more!
Check out the slideshow and some videos after the break!
This past Thursday evening, I had the pleasure of being invited to (and attending) a benefit for the local Land Heritage Institute (LHI) of San Antonio, Texas. The LHI, founded in 2002, is a non-profit organization that is based upon 1,200 acres of open space that is being developed as a living land museum on the far (and I mean FAR) south side of San Antonio, immediately across the Medina River from the Toyota Manufacturing Plant. I was invited by Mark Oppelt, the President of the LHI Executive Committee and my former boss over at O’Neill Conrad Oppelt Architects. Read the rest of this entry
This past Saturday, March 31, I was able to attend the 8-BIT ARCADE! (LEVEL 2) event at the White Rabbit in San Antonio, hosted by ARTSLAM! San Antonio, and sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon and Montana. The premise for the event is to bring back the memories of childhood from going to the arcade, spending quarters upon quarters of our allowance money (or cash from our parents), learning team-building strategies from classic arcade co-op games like “The Simpsons,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time,” or “X-Men” with friends and complete strangers. Man, those were the days; too bad arcades (on a large scale) are pretty much dead in America (and NO, Dave & Busters does NOT count).
