Ghostbusters in Motion

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

The latest Ghostbusters: The Video Game trailer is up and man oh man it’s getting me all kinds of excited:

The game itself better not suck, because this has potential to be the coolest thing ever. How could it not be? It’s the unofficial Ghostbusters III with all the main talent on board (No, I don’t count Rick Moranis) and even most of the secondary types. Hell, it could almost be better than a movie, because you won’t be distracted by the ravages of age on the main actors. Dan Aykroyd’s almost more frightening than any of the ghosts.


Mortal Kombat vs. DC: The Trailer!

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Well the trailer to the highly anticipated (or maybe sorta anticipated?) Mortal Kombat vs. The DC Universe is finally here and it doesn’t look like complete garbage. I’m hoping it’s not a complete suckfest, because these previews are starting to get me thinking otherwise.

I particularly like the part where Flash is running with the guy through walls. I wonder if that’s a move that’s particular to Flash or if all the combatants, excuse me, Kombatants, will do that as well. It also looks like they’ve gotten their breast physics working quite nicely with Catwoman there. It wouldn’t be a fighting game if the female fighters didn’t have ridiculously large sized breasts that were exposed for no reason.

At the end the also prove that there’s still some fatalities, though you don’t get to see the “good part.”

Angry Video Game Nerd vs. Superman 64

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

I’m surprised this didn’t happen sooner, but the Angry Video Game Nerd has finally tackled Superman 64. It’s an epic episode only because Superman 64 is one of the most reviled games in video game history.

The one thing that I have to ask is, when is flying through rings ever a good idea in games? I’m a fan of space based flight games and for some reason they’re always throwing some sort of stupid ring based levels in them. Enough already!

It’s funny to think that the game was so bad that when I worked for Wal-Mart and it was still kind of new, it was marked down to 2.00 bucks. Even then we could barely sell the damn thing. I remember a Dad picked it up for his son and I felt terrible ringing up the purchase.

Rock Band DLC Update: Week of 6-30-08

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008


Metal fans should be happy with this week’s Rock Band DLC. The songs come from the Motley Crue themed musicfest called Cruefest. The Cruefest Pack will cost $2.99 (240 Microsoft points). The songs in the pack are:

* “Down at the Whisky” Motley Crue

* “Time is Running Out” Papa Roach

* “Who’s Going Home with You Tonight” Trapt

In addition to these songs there will be a free download of the song “Promised Land,” which is from an upcoming film called The Rocker.

The Leaked Gears of War 2 Footage

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

We have a red hot leak alert on our hands here. If you just can’t wait a second for anything new about Gears of War 2, then here’s some leaked footage of Gears of War 2 multiplayer in action. Please note that if you click on play and nothing happens the lawyer faeries have done their job:

Bill O’Reilly Goes Nuts on Battletoads

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

The following video was so hilarious that I just had to share it. If you don’t know him Bill O’Rielly is a right wing blow hard on Fox News. I don’t hate him and everything he stands for like most people, but I disagree with him 99% of the time. I think the only reason I sort of like him is that I used to watch the show Inside Edition obsessively when I was a kid. The following video was cut from some footage of the classic game Battle Toads and a now legendary leaked outtake from Inside Edition where Bill O’Reilly loses hit shit:

Now this is something I can relate to. I wasn’t the most skilled gamer as a kid and Battletoads was one of the most aggravatingly hard games I had ever played in my formative years, especially since I only ever played it with friends who continually beat me up (in the game of course).

Resistance Fall of Man 2 Gameplay Video

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Sony’s attempt at killing Halo with Resistance Fall of Man didn’t work all that well. Now fans of the first game and those hungry for more shooter action on the PS3 can check out videos of the game on or you can check out one of them right here:

I’ll admit that the first game’s setting appealed to me as a fan of historically based science fiction. You really can’t be the concept of aliens attacking during World War II (even if it isn’t entirely original), but for some reason when I played the demo of the first Resistance Fall of Man it didn’t really click with me. Perhaps I’ll give the game another chance, because the videos of the sequel here look pretty cool.

The Pros Show the Wii Fit Girl How it’s Done

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

So the big thing on the internet is a chick who is wearing underwear playing a boring Nintendo Wii game. Uh, yeah like I can’t find something much better than the Wii

In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the original video:


Rock Band DLC Update: Week of 6-09-08

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008


This week’s Rock Band content should appeal to fans of the Indie music scene. The three pack available this week is called the MTV2 pack (after the MTV that you don’t watch), because the songs are all from finalists from something called the Dew Circuit Breakout 2007.

The songs/artists are:

* “Moving to Seattle” by The Material

* “A Clean Shot” by The Myriad

* “Bullets & Guns” by Them Terribles

In addition there will be an extra song from a band called Maximo Park. The song is called, “Girls Who Play Guitars.”

The thee pack is going for $2.99 (240 Microsoft points) or $0.99 per track (80 Microsoft points), which is a discounted price probably caused by the fact that nobody knows who the hell the artists much less what songs they sing. “Girls Who Play Guitars” is also going for the low price of $0.99 (80 Microsoft points), most likely for the same reason.

Videos and my thoughts after the break!


Rock Band DLC Update: Week of 6-02-08

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008


This week brings another round of Rock Band DLC and Harmonix is really bringing the heat. First full albums and now this week there’s six songs from two artists. Too bad both of them pretty much suck, although corporate drones that like to get “crazy” on the weekends and angry kids not angry enough to listen to metal will certainly be happy. That’s right both Jimmy Buffet and Disturbed will be available for purchase this week by Xbox 360 and PS3 owners.

The offerings are:

* “Margaritaville” by Jimmy Buffett

* “Cheeseburger in Paradise” by Jimmy Buffett

* “Volcano” by Jimmy Buffett

* “Indestructible” by Disturbed

* “Inside the Fire” by Disturbed

* “Perfect Insanity” by Disturbed

The Jimmy Buffet songs are master recordings, but with a twist. They’re newly recorded songs specifically for Rock Band. It’s pretty cool that he digs the game so much, but really what else does he have to do besides rake in a lot of cash? If you have no taste you can purchase the Buffet songs for $1.99 each (160 Microsoft Pretend Points) or $5.49 (440 Microsoft Imaginarium Points) for the pack.

The Disturbed songs are also master recordings, but not super special for Rock Band. What’s nice about their songs is that they will be available for a limited time at a discounted price. They will be $.99 per track (80 Microsoft Points) for the limited time, or $2.99 (240 Microsoft Points) for the three pack.

More thoughts and videos of the songs after the break!


Street Fighter IV Trailer with Faith No More

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

There’s just something about seeing the new Street Fighter game in action that leaves me feeling warm and fuzzy inside, much like the empty love I receive from a Twix bar. Check out the latest trailer for Street Fighter IV featuring music by Faith No More. Wait! First guess which Faith No More song they used then hit play:

Wii Fit Is Great - If You Can Find It

Sunday, June 1st, 2008

Wii Fit has been out in the US for almost two weeks now, and has sold extremely well so far. In fact it has sold so well that the problem now facing potential fitness freaks is trying to find a copy of the game.

Online and offline retailers are already reporting shortages, and many people keen to get hold of a copy of the game to maybe kick-start a fitness regime are finding themselves out of luck. The incredible success the game enjoyed in both Japan and Europe has now definitely been repeated in the US.

The Nintendo Wii itself is still in short supply, even though it has now been out a year and half and you would think everyone who wanted one would have already got hold of one. But Wii Fit has increased the demand. The console may be cheap compared to it’s rivals the PS3 and Xbox 360, but the game is certainly anything but.


Celeb Drummers Take on the Guitar Hero World Tour Drums

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

In an effort to keep the buzz going about Guitar Hero World Tour, Neversoft invited some world famous drummers to “test” the prototype drum kit that will be included in the new game. The video has such noted drummers as Travis Barker from Blink 182, Travis Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Stewart Copeland from The Police.

I’m foolishly hoping there will be an easy way to use these drums on Rock Band or something. There’s no way I can afford or store two fake sets of drums and a bunch of plastic guitars. While the drums look seriously awesome, how many Rock Band owners will be able to convert over after having dropped over a hundred bucks on the game. Hell, how many people are now waiting for Guitar Hero World Tour instead of buying Rock Band like they might have previously?
Hopefully Harmonix has some sort of strategy to combat Guitar Hero’s drums as well, because if I were to choose between the two, the Guitar Hero drums just look cooler with the added advantage of having them sound louder or softer depending on how much force you apply while drumming. That’s some seriously cool stuff.

Rock Band DLC Update: Week of 5-26-08

Sunday, May 25th, 2008


After missing a week (sorry folks) your regular Rock Band DLC update is here! Last week saw a few new songs added along with nine tracks that were available in Europe. This week, if you like the Cars then you’ll be in for a treat, because there’s a whole Cars album available for purchase. If you don’t, well I guess it’s another week of not purchasing any new Rock Band songs. The Cars self titled album contains nine songs. The album can be purchased for $14.99 (1200 Microsoft pretend points), or $1.99 (160 Microsoft pretend points) per track.

They are:

* “Good Times Roll”

* “My Best Friend’s Girl”

* “Just What I Needed”

* “I’m in Touch with Your World”

* “Don’t Cha Stop”

* “You’re All I’ve Got Tonight”

* “Bye Bye Love”

* “Moving in Stereo”

* “All Mixed Up”
