Yeah I’ve been slacking! Between the new Old Spice Ladder that was put up on Gamebattles and the continuing annoyance of everyday work it’s difficult to manage the blog. Continue reading


Community, community, community

28 May

As a competitive gamer you always go where the competition is at. Halo is so popular because it has a robust community that will outlast generation, the same can be said for games like Counter Strike and Call of Duty. So when I say community is the driving force behind why a game is successful at a competitive level I mean it. When MLG first put Rainbow Six: Vegas and Gears of War on the Pro Circuit I will never forget the backlash that the Gears community had when Rainbow Six was announced first over Gears of War.

Editorial: Videogame reviewers are bad at actually playing games

25 May


Videogame reviewers are bad at actually playing games. Case in point is Shadowrun. On Metacritic it has a 66 overall rating and of course some of the big boys in game reviews are at the bottom penalizing the game for being a $60 MP only game. Did they go over the weapon/magic/tech balance that FASA poured their heart and soul into? No, they simply said:

I’m really excited because today is the day I pick up a copy of Blur! The new powered-up racing game from Bizarre Creations (the makers of Project Gotham Racing) looks to be an exciting and even competitive (gasp!) racer filled with unique and interesting ways to take out your opponents and even assist your teammates in the process!

Honestly when I managed to get a hold of the multiplayer beta I was sold after the first race. I’m not the racing game nutcase most people are. I prefer to take out my foes by pummeling them and scoring headshots, but Blur is different. This game changed my perspective on what an intense racing game could be. While it certainly didn’t revolutionize the genre (Mario Kart is still king) Blur adds a new tone with real cars in unreal situations. Be on the lookout for a little video from me later on when I pick up my copy and some impressions later on (possibly tomorrow). Of course follow me on my twitter at http://twitter.com/goldenboyftw.

Can’t wait to see you on the tracks soon!

Review: XBLA Game Room

25 Mar

Let me start by saying that anyone who knows me, know I happen to be quite fond of PlayStation Home. In fact I make it a high point in my day to get on and play some pool with random people. It’s like ChatRoulette but more fun and less penis dudes. Continue reading

South Parks’ Tiger Woods episode could be the cause of a lawsuit?

22 Mar

It seems like the recent (and really funny) episode of South Park might be the cause of a lawsuit for it’s “copyright infringements throughout it and a lawsuit could be pending” stated by Peter Moore.

While I think the episode was hilarious I can see how EA would have to take legal action. I can’t wait to see how this story unfolds.

Could Modern Warfare 2 be in its last days?

20 Mar

The glitches in Modern Warfare 2 are far from being a mystery. In fact I would go as far to say this it’s the most unfinished game ever produced (it even beats out Gears of War 2)! Continue reading
