Demas+Indie is a show about games that are still works in progress and could use some promotion. You’ll see the core mechanics and gameplay. And there will be a follow up video where i’ll talk about the game in a more in depth manner to give feedback to the developer while I express my opinion. I hope you enjoy this. Please comment, share, like, subscribe, tweet, pin, and whatever else you’d like to do to celebrate Audience.

I have recorded, edited and produced a video for you Audience. I’m going to post it Monday. Please be here for this! You’ll have a good time. After next week I’ll be trying to create a video every week. There will be written posts as well. This week was to figure out how much time I would need to polish a video.
Enjoy your weekend Audience! See you Monday!
Matt Damon, I never really thought about the guy. What movie was he in? It doesn’t matter because this man wants the world to have clean water and sanitation. And I believe in the cause. While I can’t do much financially, I can make my fingertips dance on keys to this mission. I value this message and I’m going to spread it. Help more of the world get fresh water! Check out Matt’s page here!
I love when technology can be utilized by a force for good!
Being outside of Sacramento is really growing on me lately. There is no spite in my heart for my hometown. I’m just always there. Even being this 8 hours away feels revitalizing. You’d probably love a little change in your life too. And being out here has me thinking about the format of this site and it’s direction. I too desire a little alteration. I’m going to update the look once again as well as my frequency in posting. ChrisDemas.com isn’t going away, it’s just getting some work done.
Deeper down the rabbit hole we fall Audience. This better go well. Rabbits are terror inducing so stay tuned.
Behind the scenes I’ve been searching for a job opportunities and work. Well I found two jobs. One working for a realty company and the other may become paying as a social media intern to eventual consultant. They both stole my morning so I have to speak on Pinterest later. However, I just started using it and it’s kinda nifty. Pinterest post soon! Have a good day.
Imagine having a camera that can easily plug and play with any device that has a usb port. That’s the Sony Bloggie. But is it a good camera? What do I think of it? Here is the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Sony Bloggie.
What’s good about the Bloggie? This camera can take high definition pictures quite easily. The Bloggie’s simple design only has 7 buttons. There is a button that takes the pictures, one for video, and one for power. The other 4 are on the touch screen. Mostly, the touch screen deals with options and your gallery. Bloggie records 1920×1080 hd mp4 video files and up to 12 mega pixel digital pictures. How do I look up there?
What’s bad about the Bloggie? There is no flash functionality. You wont get different camera modes for taking a specific style of pictures. And inside the camera itself is a usb prong which is excellent and very convenient. Unfortunately, the Bloggie software annoying and invasive. I suggest against the program it wants to install. There aren’t any options that help with the footage. Mostly the options revolved around size of picture or video.
What’s ugly about the Bloggie? As cameras go, the Bloggie has one flaw many photographers probably try to avoid. It’s horribly light sensitive. Because it’s a travel sized hand camera you can bring it everywhere. But in certain light, the pictures and videos look muddy dark or off in some other light-based way. In one sense it’s a testament to the camera since it’s very accurate. Look at my buddy in that low light! Regardless, since there is no flash, if the setting isn’t well lit you’re out of luck.
On a whole I really enjoy my new camera. It’s easy to use. The pictures are clear and the videos have great quality. It’s majorly depressing knowing I have to plan out my photos. It’s not just a random party camera to that end. However, using it for videos on here will definitely work. The moral here is, make sure you do your research before you buy the camera. I got lucky!
Have you ever thought to yourself or with a friend “who would win in a fight?” And then you both proceed to put two super heroes or characters up against one another. Usually, especially at a comic shop, this results in a loud debate between friends. Death Battle does this and then shows you the fight. What you’ll particularly find fascinating are the depths they go analyzing the talents, tactics, equipment, and powers of the combatants. It’s awesome.
Let the geek fights begin!
When picking out a device at the store, I doubt your first thought is “which device is going to be my new best friend?” I doubt that because usually we think of a cellphone as a tool first and build a connection with your new technology afterward. However, we all have best friend syndrome with different devices and pieces of technology so I thought I’d take a moment to discuss the philosophy behind it.
Your best friend in terms of technology is probably the device or software you spend the most time with. It’s important to you to enjoy it when you can. You’ve seen these examples in your life of people who can’t stay away from their tv, laptop, computer, game console, phone, tablet, e-reader, or mp3 player. They love the world their machine creates and leaving it usually puts them off in a way.
Second, the best friend philosophy is tied in with another. Your “reconnecting” or returning to said item is always a welcome one after you’ve been away from it. And, for it to be this philosophy you must have both phases enjoyment and re-connection. A good example is your friend the refrigerator, it’s not a device you think about in this way unless maybe you’re a chef. But the fridge can still give you that feeling of re-connection to it on a hot day when you’re thirsty, it’s just not your best friend.
Because of the first two aspects of this philosophy the third can only be one thing. This gadget or device is rarely mundane for you and you’re actively searching for ways to increase how much enjoyment you an channel from it. If it’s your phone that might mean new apps or a game system might get new games. Discovering something new for the device is just as fun as owning it usually.
The best friend philosophy is interesting because usually it’s fairly obvious. I probably have the biggest connection to my laptop as of late. Writing this blog and keeping up with video game media are my hobbies as of late. What is your best friend device? Write it down here and let us know!
I have a few matters that demand my attention. So I leave you with something awesome. While digging though the piles of videos youtube shovels at you, I found a space version of Terraria called Edge of Space. I don’t think Re-Logic is behind this though. Fairly similar style of game play.
Speaking of style, I really enjoy web reviewers and the way they make videos. Recently I’ve been plotting to make this happen here and the camera is on its way. Which means, I need to learn about video editting. While I take care of that however, I’ll need to know what kind things you’d like to see appear. Let me know below.
