About
I'm Adam

I'm 24 years old and from MN.
I'm currently trying to finish up college at Winona State.

Currently playing: MvC3, SSFIV and deblob 2.

I own: 360, Dreamcast, Wii, DS, N64, Gameboy(broken) and a slew of virtual console games.

My first system was the Nintendo Gameboy with Super Mario Land and Kirby's Dream Land. I grew up playing Sonic 2, Aladdin, NBA Jam and Donkey Kong Country at my neighbor's house. My favorite genres include platforming, action and rhythm games.

Well, Rock Band 2 is finally upon us and is rocking faces clean off.

I'm sure some of you are waiting for a month for the bundle, but what if you are like me and really only want the new drums since you only have an SDTV?

Well if this sounds like you, then I have found a deal for you (wow that sound campy but w/e)



Deep Discount has the Rock Band 2 Drums for $68.99 and they should hit stores tommorow (or so amazon tells me)

The drums normally sell for $90, so I might even pick these up at this price even though my current drums still work pretty well.

Now keep the rock going!

EDIT: I realize $70 is still expensive but it's at least nice to have some sort of initial discount.

Well it finally happened. I'm not suprised since my console started freezing/locking up this week.

My first console had overheating problems, and this one has now red ringed.
Time for console #3. Damnit. All I wanted to do was play Geometry Wars 2 but now I can't. :(

Oh well. It's been a while since I've played my Wii anyways. I think i'll be ok.

The first full album for Rock Band is finally coming out, but it's not what you might think it is.

No it's not Who's Next, instead we are getting this:


That's right. Judas Priest's Screaming for Vengeance.

"We're proud to unleash our first full album upon the masses- Judas Priest's 1982 classic Screaming For Vengeance! All tracks will be available separately for $1.99 (160 Microsoft Points), or as a whole album for $14.99 (1200 Microsoft Points)."

"We're also happy to announce two more albums that are in the pipeline and coming in the near future- The Cars album The Cars and the Pixies Doolittle."

I'm suprised by this announcement but I will get at least Electric Eye and You Got Another Thing Comin'. Not sure about paying $15 for an album though.

Track list:
All the following tracks are by Judas Priest and are masters:

The Hellion/Electric Eye
Riding on the Wind
Bloodstone
(Take These) Chains
Pain and Pleasure
Screaming for Vengeance
You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’
Fever
Devil’s Child

Videos (I couldn't find videos for all of the songs but I think you get the idea):





What happened to The Who?

"We will have a specific announcement about that coming up soon regarding some work that we have coming down the pike with The Who in general that I think people are gonna be pretty happy about...and in general what you're gonna see sorta deep dives with particular artists, where with some artists...of the appropriate stature, you'll see us doing more than whole albums, potentially even entire catalogs."
All of the Who's Albums?...Wow

20 Years ago (Today) Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up was #1 on Billboard.

Truly a wonderful milestone in music history.

Now go RickRoll yourself for the man.



Do it. You know you want to.

I have to admit, it's been quite a while since I bought a new console which is understandable considering how much these consoles cost nowadays.

So what is this awesome decision I have made?
I have finally purchased a Dreamcast and I couldn't be happier.



I never bought a Dreamcast when it came out, but I guess it's better late than never.
Sega had so many good first party games (Jet Set Radio, Chu Chu Rocket) with this system. I'm sad that the system was abruptly crushed by it's competition, because after playing it this past week, I really feel like the system had a lot more potential, but to me it still lives on.





That aside, I have really been enjoying my purchase.
Lots of Chu Chu Rocket, some Jet Grind Radio here and there, and not lots of my not copy of Ikaruga. God damn Ikaruga is awesome.

Any other games you would suggest I seek out?

I love Puzzle Quest. You love Puzzle Quest. It looks like a sequel is coming this year!

Via D3 Publisher's press release/Kotaku

The company will also be releasing video games based on Aardman's popular Shaun the Sheep character in 2008, alongside the eagerly-awaited follow-ups to the best-selling Ben 10 and Puzzle Quest.

Adam Roberts joins D3Publisher of Europe as Managing Director D3Publisher of Europe Ltd (D3PE), a publisher and developer of interactive entertainment software, has announced the appointment of Adam Roberts as Managing Director.

Adam joins D3PE having held roles as Vivendi's UK Managing Director and Vice President of Europe, and as Sales Director for Empire Interactive. As part of his new position, he will be responsible for the sales, marketing and operational functions across Europe and the PAL regions, and will be based in D3PE's Cambridge office.

"These are very exciting times for D3PE with Dark Sector shaping up to be one of the key action titles of 2008," said Roberts.

D3PE will become a force to be reckoned, and I am delighted to be part of it."

Adam brings over 17 years of industry experience to D3PE, and joins as the company looks to build on the success of its Flushed Away, Ben 10, Puzzle Quest and Earth Defence Force 2017 titles with the launch of Dark Sector: a stunning action title for PLAYSTATION®3 and Xbox 360 due for release in April. The company will also be releasing video games based on Aardman's popular Shaun the Sheep character in 2008, alongside the eagerly-awaited follow-ups to the best-selling Ben 10 and Puzzle Quest.

I can't fucking wait. I'm always up for more Puzzle Quest. The first was so damn addicting.
