Just Launched the Combo Blog

So I want to move away from this dated WordPress site as it just serves as hosting my podcasts. I want to write gaming articles on the Combo Blog under the Combo brand but continue the podcasts without the need for additional webpages.

It’s a beautiful site, if I do say so myself, and runs incredibly quickly. I had a lot of trouble setting it up the way I wanted with all the infrastructure, but finally got the speed and scalability I wanted. WordPress is quite “heavy” and I feel it affects the experience of what the website is about – just reading.

The Combo Podcast – Long Time No See

Combo is back!

We had a lot of things to catch-up on. The Mass Effect series, Shogun 2Rise of the Tomb Raider and more. Lots of good discussions, and even came up with a solution to solve world hunger by pulling a few sliders.

This episode was incredibly fun to make, so let me know if you enjoyed it.

The Combo Podcast – Architecture of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

A serious discussion on architecture and design in video games. The guest Simon (that’s Dr Simon to you!) with a PhD in Architecture has a strong understanding and appreciation of the art. He has been fascinated by video game design in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a game that really stands out with the attention to detail it pays to design.

A wonderful collection of professionally taken screenshots here.
