Nerds Play: Minecraft Pt 1 – Build a Home
Continuing more Nerds Play, but now with Minecraft for XBLA. This time Danny and Ricky are preparing for the release of update for the End this Friday.
Nerds Play: Defiance Beta
Defiance is a new IP coming next month. The most interesting thing about this new IP is the fact that not only will there will be a brand new TV series on the Syfy Channel, but two weeks before there will be a new MMO. That is a very interesting proposition. Whether it will succeed or not is still up in the air but I am excited to find out.
We got into the Defiance MMO beta and played a bit for the Xbox 360. Or to be more precise I played a little bit and Ricky provided commentary for all my wandering around.

Halo 4 Review
A few years ago, I was among a few friends to found a website called GrifballHub. Mainly, I wrote a few articles for them. Recently, they were gracious enough to have me represent the site at a Halo 4 review event. I wrote the following review for them. Please check out the awesome site for the review and other great articles.
More Minecraft Skins for Halloween
Windows 8 isn’t the only release to look forward tomorrow. Yeah, there’s some silly movie called Cloud Atlas that Danny thinks you should see. But here’s what I’m pumped for: More Minecraft skins for the Xbox 360 Edition. 55 skins in total including those above for the regular price of $2. What’s so special this time around? Your $2 is going to such charities as Macmillan Cancer Support, Child’s Play, SANDS Lothians and Block by Block.
Dibs on the floaty skeleton guy.
