I have a question for you: With the 3rd Episode of The Tester coming out this week, how many of you are watching the series? Just curious about what you think of it. Anyway, on to something better: Penny Arcade Adventures! Both Episode 1 & Episode 2 are now in a $15 bundle. That’s a great price so if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, then this is the perfect way to do so. Beyond that, it’s all about the stuff you already know. Demos for Just Cause 2, MLB 2K10, & MotoGP 09/10 & add-ons for Resident Evil 5, Dante’s Inferno & MLB 10: The Show… Bookmark...

Tecmo Bowl To Evolve With ‘Throwback’

Tecmo Bowl To Evolve With ‘Throwback’
If you check out my list of games that I’ve played, you’ll be hard pressed to find any sports titles on there. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy most sports & their gaming counterparts, although I may not be as much of a fan as your average male. It’s just been a combination of a lot of really good games in other genres & my total irritation at the thought that, in order to stay current, I would have to buy a new title each year. It’s even more of an issue this generation when online connectivity & downloadable content is the standard. Why make me pay $60 a...

So lets take a look at what kinds of fresh baked gaming goodness Sony cooked up for us this week. First, Warhawk got a temporary price reduction. I know, it’s a pretty old game, but the gamers I talk to who play it still sing it’s praises, so for $15, it’s worth a shot. The God of War III demo is now available to the masses. Remember, it was previously only available to those who picked up the God of War Collection & just recently, subscribers to Sony’s Qore digital mag. Speaking of demos, THQ released one for Darksiders. It’s probably one of the most overlooked...

W!Games Is A ‘Greed’y ‘Corp’oration

W!Games Is A ‘Greed’y ‘Corp’oration
Alright, I was probably reaching way down in the bottom of the cheese bag for that title. But seriously, W!Games has been hyping Greed Corp for some time now so seeing it finally launch (& there-by giving me a chance to play it) is something I wanted to bring to your attention. The Xbox LIVE Arcade & Playstation Network title is a turn-based strategy game based on the Mistbound universe. The single player features 4 factions, 24 maps, & over 10 hours of gameplay while the multiplayer will pit you against up to 3 other people (for a total of 4) in local, online, or bot-controlled action...

The demo for MLB 2K10 is now available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Queue it up here… Looks like Batman: Arkham Asylum pleased publisher Warner Bros quite a bit, as news broke the day before yesterday that they just became a majority stake holder in developer Rocksteady. I wonder if this has anything to do with SquareEnix getting phased out of the sequel?… Bookmark It Hide Sites

Yeah, I don’t have a lot to say here. Not terribly impressed with any of it. Sure, there’s some decent sales & the first episode of The Tester is now available (Meh!) along with some DLC for Assassin’s Creed II & Resident Evil 5, but that’s about it. Hopefully next week brings some better goodies… Bookmark It Hide Sites

This week’s Playstation Store update has a lot of awesome sauce in it. First, you’ll find a Burnout Paradise bundle for a really good price as you can get the game & all the DLC for $30. Also, Trine has a 50% price reduction, available for only $10. It’s certainly worth it at that price. As for PSOne Classics, you can’t go wrong with Populous: The Beginning, which is one of the most loved “god-games” of all time. Rock Band see’s Megadeth’s Rust in Peace album hit the music store. Little Big Planet get’s some new Valentine’s Day themed...

Apparently gamers who haven’t been able to upgrade to an HD display are have been having trouble reading the many lines of text in the recently launched Mass Effect 2. There’s even a thread about it in the official forums. Bioware’s response? Well, according to Mass Effect Project Manager Michael Gamble, “it was a byproduct of enhancements to the user interface” & they can’t address it with a patch, but will keep it in mind for their future Mass Effect titles. I wonder what they’ve done differently since this isn’t the first time this issue has...

While there isn’t a lot here to be impressed with, Sony does have a few items that may catch your eye. First up, both Puzzle Quest & Madden NFL Arcade have a temporary price drop, from $15 to $10. The February issue of Qore is also available, sporting the demo of God of War III (for subscribers). Tecmo’s instrument-controller-enabled platformer Fret Nice is another one you might want to check out. Both the full game ($15) & the demo launched. Since I don’t have any instrument controllers for my Playstation 3, I’ll have to wait for the Xbox LIVE Arcade version to...

Needlemouse + XBLA/PSN/WW = Sonic 4

Needlemouse + XBLA/PSN/WW = Sonic 4
When we first got wind of Project Needlemouse, there was a mix of joy & trepidation. Joy at the return of the iconic speedster & trepidation because of the long time struggle Sega has had getting the spiny mammal to be successful since it’s 16 bit days. Today, Sega finally showed it’s hand, & I must say, I think they’ve been dealt full house. One of the biggest complaints have been that they seem to miss re-creating the magic that Sonic had back on the Genesis. So, Sega seems to have finally taken that to heart & is creating Sonic 4. No were-hogs, no RPG elements...

This month’s issue of Qore has a cool little bonus for subscribers: The God of War III demo. Previously only available as a bonus for those who purchased the God of War Collection, the demo is the same one shown at E3, PAX, & Comic Con, giving players a chance to step into Kratos’ shoes for a quick mythological romp in preparation for the March 16th launch. As for content, Audrey Cleo heads out to Japan & gives us a closer look at Yakuza 3, Resonance of Fate & the gadget-laden Akihabara.
