Gamespot Iron Man Review

Gamespot Iron Man Review

The Good Flying at high speeds Mowing down soldiers with your Gatling gun. The Bad Dull, unengaging combat Blurry, sad visuals Makes being a wealthy playboy genius in a superpowered flight suit seem boring. 5.0 = Mediocre SOURCE Held captive in a cave by soldiers armed to the teeth with weapons of his own design, Tony Stark ponders his fate.

Some Info on Guitar Hero: On Tour

Some Info on Guitar Hero: On Tour

I saw this over on GoNintendo.com’s main page. I honestly wouldn’t give this thing the time of day. It had some serious potential but this amount of content couldn’t keep me satisfied for more than 10 minutes, and I LOVE Guitar Hero… Summ[a]ry coming from this month’s Nintendo Power: – Star Power is controlled by either blowing into the mic […]

IGN Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom review

IGN Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom review

Yes…another IGN review. I’m a little dry today. “The least compelling entry in an otherwise stellar RPG series.” http://wii.ign.com/articles/869/869255p1.html 6.5/10 Phantasy Star III is not well liked. Not when compared with the other games in its series, at least. Because where SEGA’s Master System original I and Genesis follow-ups II and IV are all regarded as classic sci-fi RPG experiences, […]

IGN Octomania Review

IGN Octomania Review

“If only all budget titles were this good” http://wii.ign.com/articles/869/869599p1.html 7.8/10 “There is a certain breed of gamer out there who eats up anything Japanese.  Octomania is just such a feast, overflowing with hyper-cute anime characters, a storyline that revolves around the Japanese dish takoyaki (fried octopus), and hilariously terrible voice acting. The puzzle gameplay, also quirky, is different enough to […]

Mega Wall

Mega Wall

“Classic NES Mega Man on my room’s wall, made of 7x7cm paper squares, about 2m in height.” This is from his Flickr description. Found it over at thetanooki.com/2008/04/25/artistic-skill-patience-mega-wall/ “Flickr user dergutemoritz created this NES masterpiece using 7×7cm paper squares and a great deal of patience. This well thought out design is cheap, beautiful and erasable if you should for some […]

No price cut for the Wii and DS in ’08

No price cut for the Wii and DS in ’08

Lowering the price would have just made even MORE people want them.  Like it says in the article, why make something cheaper if everyone wants it?

Wii Fit IGN UK review

Wii Fit IGN UK review

Seems like a pretty solid review.  IGN UK gave it an 8.0/10.  Link “Really, the attention to detail in Wii Fit is staggering. Alongside training exercises, the software features all manner of features – from small touches to major additions – that turn what could have been a bare-bones hair-brained product into an exceptionally well-rounded package.” UK, April 25, 2008 […]

Wii Fit Experiment (not Mickey’s)

Wii Fit Experiment (not Mickey’s)

*update* It might not have been Wii Fit.  They just really made it seem like that’s what they were playing.  They never actually said it. Up in Canada, a middle school gym teacher got his students exercising with the Wii. “While Chin won’t have final test results from his experiment for another week, the early results from this morning are […]

IGN Battle of the Bands review

I thought it would be cool to hear songs in different styles of music. Well it is. It just isn’t fun, according to IGN. I actually got embarrassed listening to the different styles of the Ramones – Blitzkrieg Bop. I do admit the marching and country styles are kind of funny. The latin one is…odd. Hip hop is a disgrace. […]

Video Game Tattoos

Video Game Tattoos

I was looking at a bunch of pictures of people’s tattoos (don’t ask why) and there was a bunch of full back and arm tattoos of video game characters, etc. I don’t know if it’s just me but I think that is probably the dumbest thing you can do. I mean, yeah, get your favorite character or whatever, but not […]

My favorite Zelda game

My favorite Zelda game

There are a few things I consider when deciding my favorite game in a franchise. I like to add in the nostalgia factor a lot. That doesn’t only mean old games. That can mean how I will look back on a recent game. I also kind of tend to like what everybody else likes least. For example, my favorite Mario […]
