no not Halo 3. After calling around 5 local Targets I finally found one that knew what I was talking about/selling black psp slim early. Picked it up today, its as lightweight as advertised, everything looks pretty good so far. The packaging was annoying as hell though, you shouldnt have to use a knife to open up something that costs 169+ dollars. It'll probably be another week until i can get any games or a memory card. Lol my first next gen system is a handheld. Woot woot woot i'm so giddy right now.
So the Dual Shock 3 has apparently been 'Confirmed' For TGS. Still looks awkward, like the analog nubs are too low or something. Obviously someone needs to get "hands-on" this thing and tell us how ergonomic this thing is.
Ah the eye straining fun. Takes me back to long boring car rides to New Jersey to visit aunts and putting batteries in the freezer. My first introduction to the Ninja Gaiden franchise was actually with the Tiger Electronics version of Ninja Gaiden II. Incredibly addictive and fun stuff, all of it. I think Ninja Gaiden II taught me my first serious lesson that electronics and water dont mix after trying to clean the screen under a running faucet (i was 6 but pretty dumb move nonetheless). Graduating to an NES and eventually a Game Boy i didnt play many more tiger handhelds but those were good times we had. Good times indeed. Also, batteries not included.
He's back... first there was Cocolate Rain, followed by Internet Dream and the supremely shitty rap song no one remembers. Now Tay is back with "Do the Cant Dance". Awkwardness is in full effect and Tay makes me feel like Fred Astaire or whatever contemporary dancer I'm supposed to substitute him with these days. Enjoy. Cringe. Throw tomatoes.
I've been lurking the Sony boards for a while in anticipation of the new psp slim bing realased. So when the Silver Psp Slims were being sold early I assumed everything was on schedule and the black ones would be released 9/10. Naturally when I checked online I found out that the black psp slims have been bushed back to 9/24, leaving me to twiddle my thumbs until then. I'm assuming its because the 9/10 date wasn't cemented but it doesn't make it any less annoying. These next two weeks are going to drive me insane after being only days away from getting one. read
Gamepolitics gave a heads up about Star Jones' examination of violence in games and video game legislation. So I ended watching Court TV probably for the first time ever. After sitting through crap about Lindsey Lohan and Brooke Hogan she finally got to the issue at hand. The Columbine survivor said whats to be expected of someone who's experienced what he has although he didnt solely blame games for the tragic Columbine massacre. California State Senator Leland Yee and attorney Katherine Fallow squared off to argue the respective sides and Fallow argued far more effectively. Yee and all his ilk just dont seem to get that all the legislation they are creating is unconstitutional; and like Farrow pointed out all next gen consoles have parental blockers if parents want to keep mature games out of kids hands. The sale of M rated games to minors is comparable to selling R and unrated films but the game industry is being unfairly legislated against. Parents should monitor what their kids play and deem whats appropriate. All these bills being passed by lawmakers are attempts to gain voters by being tough on games and an obvious waste of time ans taxpayer money. read
