Those reviews I promised

Posted by inpheaux on November 19th, 2006 at 2:10 am

Or some of them, at least. I'm sorry that this is going to be a rather terse update, but I only have however long it takes for my Wii to update itself before I am compelled to begin pouring hours upon hours of my life into it. So here goes, five new reviews: Sam & […]

Gamestop finds a few more PS3s

Posted by inpheaux on November 17th, 2006 at 7:08 am

After all the shenanigans of the week, from PS3 lines getting hit by bb-gun drivebys, to Gamestop announcing that whoops they can't fill all their preorders, to lines being filled with homeless people paid to be there, to Gamestops being held-up at gunpoint just to clean out their four whole PS3s, Gamestop has somehow managed […]

Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth preview posted

Posted by inpheaux on October 18th, 2006 at 12:20 am

Quick update here before wrapping up for the day: we've got another in-depth interview/preview posted and ready for consumption. It's for an upcoming indie PC game - Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth. It's a fan game, an homage to LucasArts SCUMM-based adventure games of years past, and thus far it's really shaping up […]

New set of Reviews & Previews posted

Posted by inpheaux on October 1st, 2006 at 7:48 pm

We've been busy around here, honest. Couple new things to discuss. First: we've done away with our old numerical score system, as discussed on our forums. Numbers just don't convey any information anymore. What review sites are really trying to convey when it comes to scores is if we recommend a game or not, and […]

DPad sorta goes to SIGGRAPH 2006

Posted by King_Andy on August 5th, 2006 at 6:59 pm

This year the Association for Computing Machinery's SIGGRAPH convention was on the East coast for the first time in about a decade, thereby enabling me to attend it. SIGGRAPH-the-organization is a subset of the ACM, specifically the "Special Interest Group on Graphics and Interactive Techniques". Every year they hold a nice big convention (also conveniently […]

Whoops, something blew up at 1&1 again. Conveniently, it blew up right before I was scheduled for some oral surgery. Everything's back up now, though. Except me. I'm going down now.

New Directional Pad forums online!

Posted by inpheaux on July 30th, 2006 at 2:13 am

After a week or so of teaching myself all about modding and theming PunBB, I'm happy to say that we've rolled out the new Directional Pad Forums. They work more or less exactly like they used to. The key difference is that they're not phpBB anymore, which will let me sleep a bit easier at […]

DPad’s belated first birthday

Posted by inpheaux on July 13th, 2006 at 9:47 pm

We were so busy getting content ready to post, and doing other important things on the internet that I can't seem to recall at the moment, that we all totally forgot that the site turned 1 back on 06 JUL 2006. Technically the site dates back further, to either its larval stage at, or […]

5 New Reviews (Seriously!)

Posted by inpheaux on July 12th, 2006 at 12:45 am

Yes. We've been sitting on these. Some of them for quite awhile. We're sorry about that, but again would like to blame E3 and Oblivion. So here's what we've got: 1) Tetris DS - A great game you should already have by now. 2) Metroid Prime Hunters - A somewhat disappointing game you should have […]

DS Lite Really Seriously In Stores (For Real)

Posted by inpheaux on June 11th, 2006 at 11:23 am

Quick little update today with a bonus prize inside! For those of you who were unable to convince your local retailers to break the DS Lite's street date last week, it's finally out now. Really. Furthermore, we've known stores have had them all in stock so there's none of the standard one-day-wait to get units […]
