Entropy Poker A.I. – Sounds very umm… computery

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Our next banner entrant is Ergod with Entropy Poker A.I.  I’m not really sure how to classify this.  It’s not strictly a game.  Sure Poker is a game, and sure you can play against the computer.  In fact as far as I can tell you don’t play against humans at all (Of course the only way you could do that is over the internet, but I digress).  Generally speaking this is a simulation designed to help you get good at poker by offering AI in the form of simulated neural nets.  Well if you don’t know what all that means, it simply means it tries to copy brain processes to provide it’s artificial intelligence.  Firstly I don’t think that much of this, not because it isn’t useful or what it’s for, but mostly because it’s not really set up as a game.  I wouldn’t run this software if I wanted to relax from a day of hard work.  I would, however, end up using it so I could up my game when I play poker with real people, which is precisely what it’s made for. 



Awesome Soccer is Awesome

Well, I just thought that was a cool name, not that I necessarily think it’s awesome, not that I necessarily don’t, not that I necessarily, well, I suppose I used necessarily too much.  It’s called Awesome Soccer by Red27 Studios!  All-in-all it’s a decent soccer game (football for you European folks).  Graphics and sound are well done for an indie game, and it’s fun to play.  However I think this is more for soccer/sports enthusiasts than general game players.  The keyboard control is a little tricky but you can also use a gamepad (I used my wireless xbox360 controller with windows).  Gamepad is a lot better for control.  Check out some video. (I realize this is probably the same video as in the preview but now you don’t have to click the preview).

Preview: Awesome Soccer

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Awesome Soccer is Awesome.  Okay our next preview is a soccer game called Awesome Soccer by Red27 Studios.  You know what I played that as a kid for about a year or something in grade school.  There was this one game where I managed to score a goal, and it actually got in the paper (this was in Georgia like in the 80’s)  when I was i don’t know 3-4-5th grade.  Ever since then I liked soccer pretty good.  Of course now I don’t play and I don’t watch even though I dig the game.  But that’s another story for another day.  Here’s what Awesome Soccer is about

Awesome Soccer features a superb after-touch system that allows you complete control over the swerve of the ball…you can even bend it in both directions!  Score spectacular goals the great Roberto Carlos would be proud of!”

I mean how Awesome is that?!?
