Easter holidays!!

So I am off tomorrow morning to Georgitsi, a beautiful village in the Taygetos mountain near Sparta. I’ll be heading there with some friends to have a good time, and spend the Easter holidays. So unless excessive amounts of food and alcohol take up all of my time, I plan to do some reading as well; I’ll take Dexter by Design with me, the new novel by Jeff Lindsay, to see what happens when Dexter returns from his honeymoon in Paris I return to Athens on Monday, but I don’t plan on sticking around. I’ll probably go to Larissa on...

Braid – one of the most original games in recent years.

To be honest, it has been a while since I’ve played any game – mainly due to the fact that I got tired of them. You will of course argue that there have been many titles that deserved my attention the past year, and I fully agree. The only game that actually got some attention was NBA 2k9, and that’s because I could simply play a couple of games, leave it be for a while, and then pick it up again. It was funny, because even thought I was aware of all the new releases, I never actually played any...

Life after AMD… and a new theme!

As many of you know, I haven’t been a part of AMD PR for the past three months. The economic crisis that hit out industry took a toll in my (former) company as well, and many capable people were left without a job.

So, apart from some posts in Rage3D’s Off Topic, I stayed away from everything, on purpose. Well, that’s...

Yes… a refresh…

After quite a while, I decided to ditch the old blog template – I like this one much better. Of course it’s still largely uncustomized, so I’ll update it in the following days. … and yes, I’ll try to update more often

Dun dun duuuun… Spider!

So, with the cat (or should I say Spider) out of the bag, here are my impressions of the whole thing. I believe that, what AMD presented in Warsaw is the beginning of a new way of thinking for many consumers. These days, believe it or not, consumers buy products based not how much performance they’ll get for their €. Meaning, they decide that they have, let’s say €500 to spend, and then see what’s out there that can give them more performance. Let’s start from the foundation of the whole thing: the motherboard. AMD’s 790FX is probably one of...

Soo… back in Athens

After five days of hard work in Warsaw, I am finally back in Athens. We put some long hours there, making sure that everything was great, and I believe the AMD team did a great job. I do have some pictures of the event, but that will have to wait until Monday – but bear in mind that I am a lousy photographer :p
