Should You Buy It? One Finger Death Punch (PC)

Should You Buy It?  Score:   Yes!

Just getting that out of the way, because every minute you don’t own this game is a damn shame.

What is it?

One Finger Death Punch is an insane indie PC game available on Steam.  The best way I can describe it is that it is an on-rails beat-em-up.  Imagine you’re standing in place while an army of ninjas moves at you on a 2D plane, riding people movers that may speed up, a non-stop parade of goons just waiting to be beaten upon the head, neck, and face.  Oh, and they’re all stick figures.

That’s One Finger Death Punch.

Chromebooks, Part 1:  What is a Chromebook?

Chromebook Overview

Simply stated, a Chromebook is a laptop running Google’s Chrome Operating System, which is based around the concept of a computer doing everything out of Google’s Chrome browser.  Similarly, a Chromebox is a desktop system running Chrome OS. When the platform was launched in 2011, Chrome OS was basically the Chrome web browser only and had no file management system and little to no offline capability.  Since that time, the OS has come a long way, and is now a fully functional operating system that has file management and offline capabilities, albeit one that is still tied to Chrome and geared towards the cloud and online functionality.
