Good old-fashioned shooting with Kobo Deluxe

  •; By Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier (Posted by dcparris on Feb 8, 2007 1:21 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Community
If you still dig the old-style arcade games, you owe it to yourself to check out Kobo Deluxe, an improved version of XKobo with sound and better graphics.

Right -- fast-paced action and an ever-increasing high score, which Kobo Deluxe delivers in spades.

I just browsed back across some old bookmarks I had made on subjects to blog about. I've been playing catch up for the last few days as some of my projects I've been working on are slowing down. During this browsing session, I happened upon a blog entry titled "So Many Distros, So Little Time" which originally jumped across the RSS reader during January of this year.
