Microsoft’s Deal of the Week is actually a 3-fer: Marvel vs Capcom 2 (800 MP), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Reshelled (400 MP) & Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao (800 MP). Honestly, these are the prices they should have been right from the beginning. Especially the...

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...

Xbox LIVE Usage: Week Of 11/23
Looks like the entire list has been refreshed for the most part. The Gears of War franchise has completely disappeared. Unsurprisingly, Modern Warfare 2 is reigning supreme & I don’t expect it to be toppled anytime soon (most likely not until the next holiday season). In fact, the Call of Duty...

LIVE Usage For Week Of 10/26

LIVE Usage For Week Of 10/26
Wow. I’m honestly surprised by this week. I must have really underestimated the following of the Halo & COD franchises as I fully expected Borderlands to crack the Top 5. On the Arcade side of things, I’m still very happy to see Trials HD sit on top of the list. That game really is one...

LIVE Additions 11/2-11/4
I’m not terribly impressed with this week’s offerings. First, Rock Band brings us more of the same (Nirvana & Foo Fighters). Now, we are getting 3 Wallace & Gromit episodes on Arcade & the Deal of the Week will be for a map pack on a game that most people will stop playing by...

Review: Trials HD (XBLA)
I need a doctor. Is there a doctor out there? I have so many broken bones that typing this is killing me. Okay, so I’m exaggerating a bit. I may not have any broken bones, bruises, or abrasions, but I sure feel like I do. You see, Trials HD just launched on Xbox LIVE Arcade. The folks at RedLynx...

Xbox LIVE Deal Of The Week & Arcade Update

Xbox LIVE Deal Of The Week & Arcade Update
This week on Xbox LIVE Arcade will see the launch of Trials HD. It’s described as a physics based racing game, but after some hands on time with it, I can attest it’s much more than that. Between the 50 playable levels & the editor along with the several game modes, saying it’s...

Review: TMNT: Turtles In Time Re-Shelled (360)

Review: TMNT: Turtles In Time Re-Shelled (360)
“Heroes in a half shell, TURTLE POWER!” Who doesn’t remember the definitive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song for the 1980’s cartoon? The source material was a bit dark & had a rabid comic book cult following, but the 1987 cartoon series was tweaked quite a bit &...
