Game Run Down for the Month!

The month in review.

What did we learn this month?
I am as surprised as you, Ninja Gaiden 2 is game of the month, wow!

Ninja Gaiden 2 - Worth it new, game of the month.
Battlefield: Bad Company - If you like a new type of story with your Military FPS, buy this new. CoD4 with destructible environments, and vehicles.
The Incredible Hulk - Worth it new, however nothing much new since Ultimate Destruction.
Hellboy: Science of Evil - Worth it used if you are a fan, otherwise you aren't missing much. Beat and repeat.

Indiana Jones Lego DS - Worth it new, big fun, pocket sized.
Plushees DS - Not even as a goof.

Inspired by the bank robbery mission in GTA 4

The best scenes in Heat.

Oh boy, Hellboy.

The Hellboy: The Science of Evil is not awesome.

However that doesn't mean it should not be considered if you are a fan. I have no problem with that kind of thinking.

Beat and repeat, that is your game play, enjoy.

The graphics are only ok. That doesn't really cut the mustard anymore. The God of War games are on PS2 and have more depth in the level design. Some reason there is an excessive amount of glowing green accents on the boards, they confuse me, so much so that I felt the need to make a note of it. I have a certain standard when looking critically at a game, and it is water effects. If you are going to make a game where the character can run through a puddle or splash around in water, you need to make the water look good. If you are not going to do water right, don't do it at all.

This game could have been made for the previous generation console. For some reason Hellboy seems to do that. Hellboy: Asylum Seeker was released for PS1 in 2003. Why would you allow that to happen?

The comics are great, the story and idea it self are great, but for some reason once it tries to venture into other forms of media all momentum is lost.

This game is not by any means a total loss, but in a time of crazy ninja game part 2, and wiggle, poke and shake your ass games, it would be nice if this game filled the void it is supposed to a little better. Granted there are unlockable characters, of which I have yet to unlock, and there is a co-op multilayer ability which is always a plus. I will though continue to play this game, but i know what is in store.

Buy this game, used, and well can play together online.

Why do we do this?

Rusty crap! Bad robot! Nothing to do with Lost!

Worst robots in media

D.A.R.Y.L (Data Anaylizing Robot Youth Lifeform)

I read the book when I was a kid and I saw the movie. The kid from Never Ending Story played pole position really well, and for some reason flew an SR-71 Blackbird into a lake.

Johnny 5

Golly gee! Johnny 5 is alive! Now lets all sing that horrible song, and wear a bandanna.

Astro Boy

He looks a kid. How many kids do you know that are cool?

V.I.C.I (Voice Input Child Identicant)

Again, kid bots are not cool. Also I would confuse this show with Out of This World, I don't like it when television confuses me.

Great robots! All that is good and mechanical!

Yes, robots! Here is a short list of what I think about robots.

Best good guy robots in media

V.I.N.CENT (Vital Information Necessary, CENTralized)
Roddy McDowall makes many things awesome.

Disposable assassin. Big yellow rules hard. Read it if you haven't.


Only cool kid bot. Somehow was able to fight his way out of a whale. If you think about it, it's almost a prequel to The Blade Runner.


If there was a best robot of lame robots, it would have to be Twiki. Mel Blanc did the voice and I remember having macaroni shaped like him as a child, I loved that penis head shaped little thing.

Best bad guy robot in media.


Scariest robot ever.

Yeah, I don't know what it is either.

Blizzard has put this image up on their main page of their website site. No one seems to really know what it is. Most people seem to speculate Diablo 3. Hey guess what? This looks like ice to me, and the name of the company is Blizzard, go figure. Everything isn't viral marketing.

Special Editions taken too far.

Yes, I spent 80 something dollars on the GTA Eye Vee, special edition, and I got a duffle bag that I used the other day, and a little lock box that I can put things in. I think the Fallout 3 one comes with a bomb shelter and a gieger counter.

I think Command and Conquer: Kanes Wrath, might be a little bit of a strech considering the subject matter of the game.

So if there was a World War 2 RTS, could we get bobble heads of all the Axis powers?

Left 4 Dead! "Explicit Co-op!"

November 4th can't come out soon enough. Mike Booth discusses some of the ins and outs of Valves newest fun fest. It ships for the PC and the 360. Sorry PS3. This game looks quite the bad ass.

By the way, do you understand the title, the 4 means four players. A motley bunch if I say so myself.

You don't like my game? Well you're a pirate and a thief, and I don't like you!

Atari is suing German website 4players on accusations of piracy. Why you ask? Because of a pre-release review of Alone in the Dark. 4players gave Alone in the Dark a 68%, Atari freaked, pulled their advertising and now they seem to want blood. Jörg Luibl, Editior and Chief of 4player, released a statement in German that sounded really harsh, through the magic of Google translator we are able to show you what he said. He also claimed that 2 Norwegian magazines were victim to similar attacks by Atari.

No one likes a bully Atari.

Have you seen the gas prices lately?

In a world of movies that could be awesome.

Last September Toby MacGuire forgave himself for that Spider-Man 3 mess, by stating that his production company would be making a live action Robotech movie. According to IMDB the movie is coming out in 2010. There is really no other information at this time.

Lawrence Kasdan is said to pen the screenplay. This is the guy that wrote Raiders of the Lost Ark and Empire Strikes Back. He also wrote the story for the video game Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire.

It is not hard to imagine Toby MacGuire as Rick Hunter. Too bad Mitch Hedberg is dead he would make a great Max Sterling. I wonder who will play Minmay

Lets try not to have this game suck.

Spider-Man had a short run of awesome. The last few Spider-Man games were really bad and inexcusable. Much like that last movie. The past few Spider-Man games showed is that that sandbox games does not always make for great game. With great environment comes great responsibility.

At the New York Comic Con they had a huge booth showing off the new game, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. A big screen with really vague images and obvious cut scenes from the game played all day at the booth. They showed no game play at all. But they did free posters, I got one it is even autographed. Some Spanish guy, he was friendly. His name was not Jose. I will remember when I finally put up the pictures from the NYCC. The above picture is what he signed.

Nothing like listening to game creators talk about their games (every Bourne Supremacy game trailer), but if the game play is going to be this fluid, I am going to give it a shot, hopefully we will see a demo soon.

Black Market Lego Weapons!

Need to outfit some of your minifigs with more a suited armament for doing maneuvers in Legoland? Be sure to stop by BrickArms for all of your high end weapons needs.

Will Chapman is psyched and these things are awesome. According to the site he started this out of a request from his son. Apparently the whole family designs the toys and trims the plastic. A family that Legos together stays together, cause they are Legos and they snap... together. It is a pun of some kind.

Nazis, complete with Nazi guns!

Colonial Marines, with space alien splattering assault rifles.

Even, Richard Dekkard from the Blade Runner, with that hand cannon he had.


Rolling Stones and some video game bad ass dudes.

When content is lacking and slow, we put up some filler.

One woman to control the Punisher

Did you know that the new Punisher movie is directed by a hot German female? I didn't until yesterday.

Before taking the directors chair of Marvels most hardened character, Lexi Alexander, she was a stunt woman and really into martial arts. Here she is pictured with the hobbit guy. I hope this movie is good.

Another famous female German director is Leni Riefenstahl. She is famous for directing what some call, "greatest propaganda movies in history." The more commonly known title is Triumph of the Will. Here is a picture with her and the producer of the film at some red carpet event.

Ninja Gaiden 2

Team Ninja has released Ninja Gaiden 2 and with lots of blood, dismemberment, hot anime boob girls, incredible graphics, and acceptable voice acting. Team Ninja, is like Volvo. They make good cars, but you can always tell it is a Volvo, there is no hiding certain things.

Taking place 6 months after the events of Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword. Ninja Gaiden 2 continues to follow the exploits of Ryu and his trail of dismembered dead foes. I can't stress enough how much dismemberment there is.

A quality button masher, platformer with a high attention to detail in its platforming elements. The auto camera leads you where to go, like most games these days, if you are not particular to show reverence to the high level of detail, you will miss things. Nothing like having highly frenetic ninja game guy fighting lots of dudes and bathing in their blood to then out of the corner of your eye you see what looks to be a hallway behind a potted plant, you leave the battle and run down this hall just to find a box with a ginseng root in it. Hunting for treasure is an important part of the platformer, but when you start to think about it, it gets is a little ridiculous. There is no office building that would have little ninja looking boxes three floors up from a boss battle. Why not just smash a desk and get some health. I am sick of looking for unrealistic boxes. In all honesty I am being trivial, it's not like you have to collect glowing orbs, no they are attracted to you automatically. 3 types of glowing orbs; one orb is used like money, another is for health, and the other is the "magic" one, pretty standard if you ask me.

The original Ninja Gaiden was a tough game. I don't know anyone that could say otherwise. I played through the first few chapters of Ninja Gaiden 2, and I can't help but wait for the other shoe to drop. When does this game get mind blisteringly difficult. A European Spaniard I know that hails from a small fishing community off the coast of the Mediterranean said to me this the first game, "you must take risks and play the game with reckless abandon, or you will fail." I still feel like I am waiting for that moment in the game. I don't feel like a ninja, I just feel destructive.

Little Red Riding Hood's Zomibe BBQ!

Gammick Entertainment is releasing a fairy tale zombie game. It's not just a zombie game, it's a fairy tale zombie game. Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ takes place in Storybookland, where something awful happens and classic characters turn undead. A Marvel Zombies of fairy tales stuff.

Little Red Riding Hood, armed with cuteness and a hand cannon, must save the day. Coming soon!

Jean Grey turd touching!

A friend of mine once told me something over beers at a memorial day picnic about hot girls picking up dog shit, and carrying it. I don't really remember the pint of the conversation, but the idea of hot girls picking up dog shit is like a real ying yang situation. Famke Janssen is hot and she is doing the brown.


You Smell Very Clean. Battlefield: Bad Company demo out!

Did you see Kelly's Heroes? If not you should it is my favorite war movie. Action with a sense of humor, but not too much humor, this is war after all. That is the vibe you get from Battlefield: Bad Company. This game is really going for that, "rag tag bunch of misfits," feeling.

This is EA's Team Fortress 2, quirky soundtrack and character bio videos, just not as Pixar looking.

I am looking forward to this game.

Get the free demo on Xbox live.

Chucks in the News! Chuck Dixon!

"I am no longer employed by DC Comics in any capacity."

He was a nice guy, he signed a Batman book of mine at a convention. I believe the conflict was caused over offensive Hawaiian shirt prints.

Turbonegro to be in Rock Band 2!

Turbonegro of Age of Conan fame, are going have some songs on the new Rock Band 2 game. I am a little rusty on my Norwegian but it looks like, "Do You Dig Destruction," and "High on the Crime," are going to the be the songs featured. I guess they over looked, "Hobbit Motherfuckers"

Josh Homme wants to fight!

Josh Homme, of Queens of the Stoneage, got pissed when someone threw a shoe at him during their set at the Norwegian Wood festival in Oslo, Norway.

Hulk want new pants too!

Over the years how many Hulk games do you think there are? Six total, five of which were on console. Who knew?

The Hulk is awesome, he is big and green. I will see the new Incredible Hulk movie, but I really was more excited about the game once I saw some of the game play. I was able to speak with a Sega representative demoing the game, came right out and said, "We based the game play on Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and stayed away from the previous movie tie-in, who the hell wants to be Banner?" It is a real easy statement to make that movie tie in games suck. However in recent times the game industry seems to be trying real hard to make the movie tie ins better. The Incredible Hulk is one of those games.

A sandbox brawler, with collecting elements.

Not every sandbox games needs to be a crime based game, or a "cop gone bad" game. The judgmental masses are not allowed to complain about the Hulk showing kids how to destroy things. We can only hope that the youth would be able to lift and throw cars.

This is an everyone game, anyone can pick it up, button mash and get some entertaining results. There is a certain amount of Tony Hawk finesse that seems to work to its advantage, making the controls and the movements more fluid. You get a real sense of mass and presence in the game.

Like other sandbox games it is easy to pass and play this game around a room of friends. With plenty of unlockable costumes, and an extensive move gallery Incredible Hulk will keep perfectionists busy for a long time.

Lego gun models! BrickGun

Makes a great gift for anyone you know that is totally awesome.

More information and purchase information is available here

Everyone wins! Indiana Jones!

Indiana Jones for the DS is awesome. It's fun and adorable and it fits in your pocket. Much like Lego minifigs themselves. The DS is fun and portable, I could be anywhere and have my little Lego friends with me. I feel that the DS version, though might not be as robust as the console version, has that, "child bringing his toy with him," feel. Not only are you bringing a game system with you, you are also bringing your collection of Lego dudes.

It is a Lego game, they figured out how to make fun. Break stuff, collect silver, gold and blue chips, buy new characters, call your friends over to the TV for cut scenes, repeat. This game is great on both systems, as expected the home consoles have better graphics and more content. However the DS has different levels and slightly different game play.

Despite the fact that the graphics are a little choppy the DS holds up strongly with game play and fluid motion. I would recommend this to any DS owner as a fun diversion.

Tale of Hollywoodland! Handsome man lands movie role of a life time!

Robot fetishist, Nolan Bushnell is going to have a biopic based on his life and times associated around Atari. Leonardo DiCaprio is going to play the visionary restaurateur.

We can only hope that Tom Cruise will play Billy Mitchell his biopic.

Tales of Hollywoodland! Max Payne and the Funky Bunch

So Mark Wahlberg is going to be in the Max Payne movie. Personally I think it should have been made with Dean Winters, better known as Ryan O'Reily from Oz fame.

Mila Kunis is still hot, even after doing that 70's show and the show where she is the cartoon character. She will play the female supporting role of Mona Sax. If memory serves correctly Mona Sax was only in the second game, however this movie will follow the events of the first game.

The guy that directed Behind Enemy Lines, John Moore. I liked Behind Enemy Lines, I like Gene Hackman and the broken nose suicide guy. Funny Behind Enemy Lines was sorta like Bat 21, but the opposite role fro Gene Hackman.

The movie is set to come out this fall.

THQ Part 4: Deadly Creatures

Deadly Creatures by Rainbow Studios looks to be one of the more interesting Wii titles to date. I am not Wii bashing, as fun and clever as a Wii maybe, most of their games feel a bit on the light side of things. If you are looking for something unique to the video game genre, Deadly Creatures will deliver this autumn.

Deadly Creatures looks promising however the trailer gives this game no justice as compared to the game play. The story is "told" from the perspective of either a tarantula or a scorpion. Kind of like the Mister Mosquito game for PS2 but with out that Katamari level of cuteness.

Rainbow Studios takes what they know, which is an arid climate, and puts it into their games. Desert life will be represented in a much more realistic manner rather than a cartoony way. The main characters do not talk, because insects don't speak. The story is told from a variety of vantage points that the player will be able to see. A fly on the wall if you will. Humans in cut scenes and in the background will be discussing the main plot points of the story. I am looking forward most to this title.

THQ part 3: Baja

I don't really care one way or the other about driving games. I loved the Burnout series until, in my opinion ruined it when, they took what was a simple concept and tried to turn it into something it was never meant to be. The key words were simple concept, something that game developers seemed to have forgotten to do since we have added added a few extra buttons on to our controllers. Baja from THQ takes us back to a simpler time. This game looks pretty impressive, and the game play is tight and fun. It takes place in what is to be the Baja area of Mexico and California. It is a racing game; the more you win, the more you race, the more you race and win the better your car can get. This is nothing new to the genre. This is also right about the part where I loose interest, I really don't care about what kind of tires I can get on my video game car, or how the front hood scoop added to my drag coefficient. I like the fast car or the strong car, and sometimes something in between.

Call me crazy but I don't like hitting things in driving game, I like jumping and flying through the air. The game is being made by Rainbow Studios who are out of Phoenix and they must know what is like to have some wide open spaces. For a guy that is generally not into racing games as a whole this might fill the void that Burnout Paradise has yet to fill.

All of that aside, this game might have the coolest multilayer feature ever. According to the THQ representative you will be able to play a 4 hour 1000 mile Baja race. I think it is pretty cool that they want to make a race that long and since it is over a off road/on road terrain it could make for a fun experience. There will also be an option to have the game run by itself for a period of time with out you drivng, so if you have to go to the bathroom, or make a sandwich, or get a soda, you can, without having to pause the game, and loose you track positioning.

THQ Part 2: Destroy All Humans! :Path Of The Furon

In a world of next-gen greens and browns....

Destroy All Humans!:Path Of The Furon, is a fun sandbox game where you play an alien that has been living on Earth for the past 20 years harvesting mankind. Destroy All Humans! first came out on last generations consoles and was fun, a little repetitive, but fun. The jokes were funny, but a little repetitive, the game play was solid, but a little repetitive, the boards were clever but when you got right down to it, a little repetitive. Now THQ is delivering Destroy All Humans to this generation of consoles, hopefully it will be slightly less repetitive.

But what is a sequel with out a bit of repetition? Highlander 2 is the answer, and that movie sucked. Every sequel needs a bit of throwback. The hard pill for me that i have to continuously swallow with the Destroy All Humans series is that they always want to have it take place in the past the 50's, the 60's, and now the 70's. The main character name is Crypto and he talks like Jack Nicholson, and the guy from Invader Zim plays the alien high command. To be honest there is something that has always rubbed me the wrong way about that.

In all fairness the game play that was showed to us by THQ was impressive. The level design is more detailed, your line of sight is further, and your game play as Crypto seemed to have a more more destructive feel. There is new weapons for the space craft game play including ship to ship combat. I might not put this at the top of my list, but if you have never played a Destroy All Humans game before this is to be the highlight of the series.

THQ Part 1 Man visits hotel, plays games, eats sandwiches: Saints Row 2

So last Thursday, I got to go to the THQ holiday press junket. This was my first time at a real game industry event. So it was kind of exciting. I was with a friend who was properly invited I was his plus 1 if you will. However they did have my name written on a piece of paper, this is also the day I became a "freelance blogger," which is a low rung on the ladder of "fake writing career," but it is a start none the less. Enough of the child like wonder, let's get down to the nitty gritty, Saints Row 2, Destroy All Humans, Baja, and Deadly Creatures. These were the biggest stand outs at the showing.

Saints Row 2, has huge shoes to fill. I actually played the first Saints Row, and enjoyed it. The story was retarded and so were the characters, but that is not to say it wasn't satisfying by any means. Where GTA 4 seems to have gone down a more sarcastic road of realism and pop culture cynicism Saints Row is more like the Spike TV version of things. Good for them I suppose, Crackdown was fun, and who didn't like the Getaway series? Mercenaries, I loved Mercenaries!

They take some shots at the big guy and at themselves in this trailer, but I think it gets the message across.

If you noticed in the trailer they show everything that can't be done in GTA 4. flying planes, blowing up trains (which was possible in the first Saints Row, and not in GTA 4), character creation, airplanes, and what look to be some more rural areas. I asked if they still had character customization, and they do. The most fun part of Saints Row 2 was the ability to make characters look like your friends.

For one reason or another they got Gary Busey to do some short spots for Saints Row 2. Here is one on a sadly missed weapon from GTA 4.

Riot cops bust up East Coast Oi! fest 2008

Friend of Japanese Dude-Girl, Vic {Lord Russen of Wallington and parts of Garfield}, went to the East Coast Oi! fest in Allentown, Pennsylvania last weekend. He said, "there were maybe 2 classic skinhead chicks that looked hot at the whole thing. Mostly dudes."

Mostly dudes at an Oi! show? Crazy talk. Anyway he said that a barrel of beer bottles had been building up all day, once the 4-Skins were about to take the stage all hell broke loose. That barrel of bottles started flying around the room. For about 15 to 20 minutes apparently the Oi! fest got hairy.

Here is the video. Riot helmets and shields are pretty punk rock in my book.

Donovan and Devil Lady.

Sometimes when I clean my room I just type in the name of a song I like into youtube and see whatever comes up. Here is a pretty original AMV, featuring Donovan's, Season of the Witch, and classic Japanimation* series, Devil Lady.

*oh yeah, I said, Japanimation.

Plushees, now a DS game!

Plushees by Big John Games. A whimsical set of boring mini games that has nothing to do with the subversive fetish community. Aside from checking this game out to see if there might be some kind of "rapeplay" that could be done with the cute little anamorphs, there is not much here for the casual pervert. There is a multilayer component to the game. I can imagine what sort of multilayer activities could be played, then again I don't think this game is for my age group.

Game play is a bunch of uninteresting stylus based touch games. You win points which you can exchange for tickets to buy other characters; horses, pigs, pandas, unicorns, and one character known as Molly. Molly is the only human styled "plushee" a little doll, with a impish grin that winks at you every 6 seconds. It is a mildly suggestive wink, with a heavy does of creepy.

You know at the local swinger plushophile meeting there is a grab bag gift exchange. Someone is totally going to wrap this as a gift. I am willing to bet that more people have bought this game on account of the title being associated with a sexual fetish, rather than being bought for children who this is obviously made for. Sadly this game sucks even for children, unless you have some pedigree real soft child that wants to cry all the time. That might be a bit harsh. Out of my catholic guilt I have to say that I am sure there are some children that will love this game.

Whips, Chicks, Chains, and Glyphs!

This fall just in time for the Season of the Witch, Konami is going to be releasing it's newest addition to the Castlevania series. Castlevanina: Order of Ecclesia. This is exciting, Castlevanina games are almost always satisfying, and they are really quite a lovely addition to any DS console.

Since creation of the benchmark game Castlevanina: Symphony of the Night, it is now an actual law to mention SotN when referring to any other Castlevanina game, new or old. So now that we have gotten that out of way we can get back to Order of Ecclesia.

In this newest game you take on the role of Shanoa who is fighting vampires, and monsters, and things that fly. I am guessing she will be related to the Belmont family who at this point have a Days of our Lives level of genealogy. Good for them, they are vampire hunters, I would assume it is like family business, much like a diner, or a hot dog truck.

Any way this game will have RPG elements and will take after the events of SoTN. The player will not only be confined to the castle; Order of Ecclesia will feature mountains, oceans, and forests. It will also include online play.

What is best in life?

Age of Conan is the lastest MMORPG made by Funcom. I know very little about this game. I know that Turbonegro has a song on the soundtrack called, "Destroy All Monsters." I also know that some people have complained about certain graphical bugs in the game play. Other than that I am honestly clueless.

I have a standard opinion about MMORPG games; which is enough with games that have magic and bare feet. I like robots and laser guns, I am tired of fantasy based MMORPG games. However Funcom did make, and still make, a science fiction based MMORPG game called Anarchy Online, a game that I never played.

They did have Turbonegro play their release party, they must be doing something good. I suppose that is what happens when you have one of your corporate offices in Oslo Norway.

I suppose if you can make women lament and crush enemies, it might be worth it.

Enough already!

Yes we know! June 12th.

It's not a pop culture phenomenon. People are excited, but not that excited. Your average PS3 player is going to hate this game after 4 hours since they will only have had 15 minutes of actual game play. This game looks pretty awesome. I am sure it will be, but then like every Metal Gear game in the past it gets to a certain point where you feel like the picture above.

MGS4 is not going to make me go out and buy a PS3, and like every other Metal Gear game they get released on different systems.

Of course if God of War 3 is Playstation exclusive, that is a different story.

No Mutants Allowed! New Fallout 3 screens!

Today Bethesda Softworks released 3 new screen shots of what hopefully this fall will satisfy my appetite for nuclear waste, post apocalyptic science fiction and old timey music.

Be sure to pre order the special edition version which comes with a cool lunch box and a bobble head!
