I'm sorry, but the more I see of this game the more I wanna club a baby seal

Weird how something so awesome, like Mass Effect, can make me want to do something so gruesome.

What are ya gonna do?   read

Street Fighter IV? F*ck That...



Sorry to be so in your face and all but; the new announcement of Street Fighter is cool and all, and I'm very glad to see it getting revisited, I just couldn't help but thinking to myself "Fuck Street Fighter I want a new Marvel vs. Capcom game.'' I mean come on, who would not want such a kick ass game to be made? No one, that's who.



A next-gen Marvel vs. Capcom would kick so much ass it's indescribable. As long as the keep it 2-D, I think it would be full of awesomeness.

Also made a forum post: Here   read

UT3 Rated E, COD4 TV Spot

I hate multiple cBlogs in a row so here's one

Unreal Tournament III

Ok, so after all the beautiful screenshots and amazing advances in graphical technologies, we are still here looking at player models that are just... Tiny. I'm hoping that this isn't really what they're going to look like in the finished product because they look vertically challenged. Don't get me wrong, I'm really looking forward to this game like no other, this just kinda bothers me. I can't really get my jollies killing midgets or children, unless they are zombie midget children. I guess I need some true face time with the game to make a better judgment.


Call Of Duty 4 TV Spot

[embed]49540:3464[/embed]

The more awesome videos I see of this the more I wish I tried a little harder to get into the beta for this. Just amazing...

One last thing, did we ever find out who won the Betrayal PS3?. Because I got bored and traded in my God of War Banner and made a new one.   read

A Party with the "Soft"

It's often said, "It's not what you know, but who you know" in my case today, that couldn't be more true. A good friend of mine was getting rid of some old computer's over craigslist, and finally found a taker. Anyway, we get to the meeting point and exchange greetings and what not, and the guy offers to buy us lunch, who turns down free lunch? No one. Ok, so we are there talking about computers and such and then we get into a discusion about games, he talks about how he play BF2142 and I tell him I play CS, I then said that I wasn't going to play much PC after this week. He stopped me mid sentence and said: "HALO 3? So you a fan?"
"Of course." I said
"Well I happen to know a guy who works for Microsoft and there is a launch party I was invited to but can't go, would you be interested?" OK, I figured he was bullshittin me, but he assured me he wasn't. So we eat our lunch and everthing and he says he'll give me all the info for it. Before I got back to work, there it was, a shiny invite in my inbox. So come Monday when most people will be sitting in the cold, I will be playing in a nice heated Microsoft sponsored event.

Update inbound with lots of pictures of the event.   read

Unreal 3 the Series?

I came across this article on teamxbox.com and I couldn't help but wonder if its really not as hard to work with as some people would leave you to believe.

Studio 2.0, the original programming, digital production arm of the Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG), has begun production on 23 new short form series projects for broadband and wireless; one of the animated series will be based on the “Chadam” character introduced as a character icon for the popular rock band The Used. A press release states:

An action-horror-adventure story filled with self-discovery, Chadam will come to full 3D animated life via the magic of the Unreal Engine 3, the leading technology and development framework that powers cutting-edge games such as Gears of War and BioShock on today’s popular platforms, including PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Internet series will serve as an incubator for future expansion of the Chadam universe, from additional online episodes to television, film, videogames and more.   read

Justice League Movie, Also New Banner

Thanks to IGN.com for always having great movie info:

Courtesy of movies.ign.com


Before there were X-Men, or the Fantastic Four, or Watchmen for that matter, there was the Justice League. Also known as the Justice League of America or the JLA (or, to the less knowledgeable out there, the Super Friends), this group of DC Comics superheroes are the standard-bearers by which all other comic team books must be judged. With the likes of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman in their ranks, how could the JLA be anything less than the creme de la creme of the superhero world?

And now Warner Bros. is making a feature film about the JLA. As astounding as it sounds, this looks to be a real project that is expected to go before cameras at the beginning of 2008. Which raises the inevitable question: Who will play our favorite heroes in the film?

Three more pages of info found here: JLA Movie   read
