Xbox Family Game Recommendation – Crash of the Titans

In my opinion, Crash is one of the less appreciated kid-gaming characters out there.  Sure, we’ve all heard of Sonic and Mario, but Crash the Bandicoot?   Why not ?! Crash of the Titans is the first Crash title that I’ve played (though my boys have played others) and I think I look forward to this…

Xbox Game — Rise of the Argonauts

I must admit that I have been looking forward to this game for a while.  Of course, I am big fan of RPG style games, but a few things made this one special from the beginning: Instead of the generic middle-earth or Dungeons&Dragons type world, this one is set in the rich tapestry of Greek…


Fun and Free Xbox Arcade game — Dash of Destruction

XBOX DAD post — the power of Windows Home Server with an Xbox 360

  As you may have seen in some of my other gaming posts, I love it when my favorite things overlap – e.g. Star Wars and Video Games. In this month’s Xbox Dad article, my Windows Home Server hooked up with my Xbox360 and effect was beautiful (literally), as my family photos and video, along…

I am an Xbox Dad !

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that the only thing I enjoy more than Data Protection and storage technologies is gaming — and specifically family gaming is an area that I think is less covered than it should be. Well, the kind folks over at XBOX.com, specifically Trixie and…
