How to Pick Up a Girl Gamer

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Over on some website some skirt wrote up something about how to pick up a girl gamer or something, I guess. Her tips might be valuable for you losers out there that can’t get a woman of your own and need to have random websites tell you how to do it.


South Park and Harmonix Team Up For Rock Band?

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

There’s a rumor going around that in the next South Park DVD release (volume 11) will feature some downloadable songs for Rock Band. This rumor came about from some retailers who received advanced notice of the possibility.

So far there’s no word on which version of Rock Band the songs would work on (please be all versions so it’s no useless to PS3 owners or vice versa). There’s also no word on what the songs could possibly be. While most of the songs featured on the show are okay to air on television, Rock Band is a family game so that would probably leave out 90% of Chef’s songs at least. If I’d had to guess, I’d think they could be stuff like Taco Flavored kisses or Cartman’s big Christian Rock song.

This is of course not the first time that South Park and Harmonix have teamed up. Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld are an unlockable song on the release disc, so that would should be out on principle.

Microsoft Reveal ‘Undertow’ As Free Xbox Live Arcade Game To Compensate For Recent Outages

Friday, January 18th, 2008

Xbox Live users were pissed off in droves over the holiday season by the random, and inexplicable outages which hit the service for over a week.

Microsoft realised the levels of anger were going to hit them badly, so announced the give away of a free game to compensate everyone affected by the downtime.

Today, they revealed the game which all Xbox Live users will be able to download for free as a sweetener. The game is Undertow, an aquatic based shooter, which normally costs 800 Microsoft points.

It will be available to download completely free from Wednesday 23rd January 2008 until Sunday 28th January 2008. I can see that 5 day period crashing the servers yet again, but fingers crossed.


Adios, Boys and Girls

Friday, January 11th, 2008

Ladies and Gents it pains me to say my farewells to 1PStart. I’ve been here only a short time, though I’ve been at Xbox 360 Rally (another 451 site) for just under a year. I will miss you guys, though you’re probably throwing a party, chanting “he’s leaving! Huzzah! Huzzah!”. If you do miss me, though, you can find me at my new home

It’s been fun, and I hope to see y’all around.

P.S.: Qbix — E-mail me, dude. I’m still gonna get your GTA IV to ya.

NinjaBee giving away Band of Bugs on PC (to lucky winner)

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

The kind folks over at NinjaBee have enlisted me to give you all notice: They’re holding a contest to give away a copy of Band of Bugs for the PC. You also get a T-Shirt, but let’s not kid ourselves — the game is the main draw here.

If you want to get a feel for Band of Bugs before you enter the contest, download the demo on Xbox LIVE. It’s a simple, fun, addictive little strategy game that, with the inclusion of a custom map creator, will have you coming back again and again.

And I’m not just saying that. I actually like this game.

Here’s how you enter the contest: You have to submit a picture of yourself with any character from the game, Band of Bugs. Doesn’t matter how you submit the picture (sketching, PhotoShop, MS Paint, etc.), but you have to submit a picture to [email protected] Images are ranked based on humor factor, so get to makin’ the funny. The contest ends on November 30th, or a week from Friday, so get to it.
