weekend blues

Xbox 360 Fanboy is confirming the apperance of a 2 minute Halo 3 video at E3 next week. I guess i should be way more excited than i am. I am a Halo fan, but for some reason, i'm not foaming at the mouth. anyways, on the right, under my Gamercard is a new thing, the Gamerscore chart. you can get yours at http://gamerscorechart.com/. Tuesday the 2nd of May, xbox live will be down for some dashboard updates. as usual, they're not saying WHAT is being updated, or why. fucking rain. it's been raining in chicago for the last 24 hours, and i'm getting sick of it. for anyone who uses yahoo mail, here's a step by step to get into the new yahoo mail beta test. it just looks more like gmail now. i finally got the patch for mlb 2k6, and even with the fucking patch, the gameplay is still broken. i guess expecting fielders to react is too much to ask. but hey, they did release some gamerpics, so the sox logo is going on my gamercard NOW!!!!!

Silent doom

kotaku.com pointed me to a audio-only game by Studio Hunty. You use the Xbox 360 wired controller (it's required) to move a monster in a circular pit, finding your prey by the sound of their breathing and if you get close enough, their heartbeat. Playing with headphones really helps, since you must be able to tell if they are on your left or right. A short but sweet game.

Get the game here.

Greatest Lightsaber Battle EVAR

Hell Yeah!!!!! This video from a few kids has a lightsaber battle that's more exciting than anything from the Original Trilogy!!!!!!!

loco roco

I've never had a desire to buy a PSP. sure, it's damn sexy, with a big screen and all, but none of the games look to me like anything i'd like to play. Metal Gear Acid, Socom:Fire Team Bravo and Me and My Katamari are games that i'm somewhat interested in, but that's it.

then comes Loco Roco.

I guess i'm a sucker for quirky Japanese games, but this might be the most happy game ever made. the music alone is weird enough to grab my attention, and the totally bizarre control scheme.....well, it's a first on the psp, that's for sure.

Check out the 1Up.com interview and video here.

Best News Post of the Week

Kotaku.com had the funniest post today. It has to do with the PS3 and how it's inner workings are currently too big to fit the display model that's been out since last year. check it out.....

freaky

so this has nothing to do with games, but i caught a few pics of some artist who makes hyper-realistic sculptures that are freaky-real. the only thing to distance them from reality is the scale. check the pics out here.

guitar hero

I have a friend who has Guitar Hero, and about 2 months ago, she invited me and my fiance to hang out at her house. As soon as we got there, she fired up her PS2 and started playing Guitar Hero. I also played it a bit, but since i had no idea you could adjust the layout for lefties, i sucked at it. This week, i was listening to episode 23? of the Bastardcast, and Justin was going on and on about Guitar Hero, enough that i said " fuck it, i'm trading in Burnout 360 and PGR3 and getting Guitar Hero." best fucking idea i've had all year. this game is so cool it's scary. as a testament to how good it is, i've actually started liking songs that i hated before i started playing this. weird. anyways, blah blah blah.

by the way, people, send in your videogame confessions!!!!!!! any story of the sick,twisted,illegal,pathetic, and downright deplorable things you've done for the love of gaming. i know i'm not the only one who stole money from homeless people to play streetfighter.

actually, i hope i AM the only person who's done that.

Smack-Down

I guess someone at Game Informer didn't like the free publicity i was giving them, and some of the pics from the new issue were removed from my flickr page. oh well. the issue is on news stands now, so go buy it if you want more Red Steel. I'm surprised it took them this long to get it done. here's the notice

wow

holy crap, my blog has gotten 10,000 hits since i posted those scans. anyways, i just finished reading the actual article in game informer, and it says that the sword and guns can be twisted in your hand, by twisting the rev's remote. so you can shoot gangster style and block with the sword. also, there is split screen and online multiplayer planned, just no details yet. you can also jump over and take cover behind objects by moving the rev's remote towards a upturned table or a wall, and reload by pulling the remote back. by the way, they are ingame screenshots. this game is looking fucking hot as hell.

Endangered Gamer #5

Aaaah, I finally got around to putting the new podcast out 3 days late. I've realized that there are a lot of podcasts out there that do pretty much the same thing that I've been doing for the last few weeks, so I'm going to NOT get so into the news stuff. If you want to keep up with the videogame news as it breaks, bookmark or syndicate Joystiq.com, Kotaku.com, xbox360fanboy.com, Ps3fanboy.com, Gamespot.com, Gametab.com and Ign.com

so there. Also, this podcast features new intro music. It might be temporary, or permanent. I have not decided. Plus, a name the game contest with a REAL prize, Ghost Recon: Summit Strike.
