By now, most gamers who follow Kinect or Twisted Pixel know the origin story of The Gunstringer (if not, it can be read here on Joystiq). A chance meeting not to be wasted, the developers took anything they could find and pitched it to Microsoft, hoping to get their foot in the door with whatever they had. Whether you think the game is good or not, one must admit that it is a unique concept. Many game companies stick to the tried-and-true, because after all, if it sells, it sells. Rarely, though, game companies take a chance, and we find something new and unexpected, thanks to people willing to take a chance. Twisted Pixel could have run from that meeting. They could have pitched something safe. They could have thrown out the Gunstringer's idea, then convinced Microsoft to go another way another day. However, they held on to it, and from what I've played so far, created a rich, unique world that makes you interested to continue.

If you own a game console, chances are very good you use it to stream Netflix. After hearing people complain about a lack of quality shows, and after the Qwikster debacle has caused many people's Netflix faith to be shaken, I was inspired to compile a list of some great reasons to hang on to your streaming subscription.

This is one of those stories that you hear about happening, but it always happens to someone else, it's the type of thing that you hear about but never really experience. In this particular instance, this story happened to me. Even though I was rather shaken up by it when it happened, I managed to live to tell the tale, which I will tell you now.

Even though I'm a dad of two now, and have substantially less time to game than I did back in my college days, I would still probably put myself in the "hardcore" crowd. I don't have an insane "kill streak" in any online FPS, nor can I proudly tout that I'm at the top of any leaderboards, but I would say that gaming still flows strong in my blood. I'm not so detached that all I play are random Wii games at parties. No entertainment media pleases me more than a couple hours in front of the Xbox with a good story driven game.
