There's nothing in a name

So the name game goes on, as infinity ward are on a desperate scramble to try and brand the up and coming
Modern Warfare 2 correctly.

A press release saying "the call of duty series is a precious one, therefore getting the brand right, is important,
therefore we won't be giving the final word on this till closer to a release."

This kind of behavior to me seems erratic and somewhat unnerving, But then again this is Activision. Infinity
Ward should stick to their guns and cut the bullshit, its not gonna make a difference people know what the bloody
game is and fans are going to buy accordingly.   read

Lookin' At The Screenshots [Day One]

In a bleak attempt for the internet to have something nice to read on a thursday I thought I would screenshot
reviews a stab. "Aye and its nah the good kind o stabbin' either its the type we a bottol"

Day 1
Here we have it beloved PC game "Off-Road Velocirapto Safari" which can be played if you guide your mouse to
the link (I've tried it for over eight hours Its pure magic by the way*).

Now as for the screenshot, what a belter, our dino friend in a safari hat, let me say that again, a safari hat
at the wheel of an off road vehicle, and hes got a bloody monocle on. Where is he going? I have no idea, Where
has he been? Perhaps to the egg shop. However all I know is that this Velocirapter is happy to be on the road,
cruising at a mild 45 with Def Leppard falling out the radio and the wind in his hat.

Also I have one last question Wardrox how did you miss this game for the Dino-Pad.

Vimto - logging off

*Please note I didn't actually play the game but gave the one screenshot a fair going over and you can't get more
rigerous than that, thank you and goodnight.   read

Its A Mad MadWorld :Readers

[size=12]What can only be described as a rag of a so called news paper, named the Daily Mail released
shocking column inches recently readers.

The paper was quoted on saying:

[b]'Horrified Parents' - are claiming that the release of violent and downright unsavoury video game "MadWorld"
will change the family-friendly reputation of the machine. [/b]

Now at first this appeared to be a some what blasé retort, something which the "paper" would get away, which
until very recently would have been the case.

Last Wednesday however, Sega the publisher of Madworld have made a controversial move in a bold bid to both
appease angry parents as well as middle class bullshite publications (naming no names). Sega are claiming
plans to post copies of sed game on its release to current owners of the Nintendo Wii in a last ditch attempt to
'get copies into minor's hands'.

In reaction it has been commented by some that Saga and developers PlatinumGames could lose money on this
stunt, however Vice President Peter Moore was quoted saying

'I couldn't give two fucks as long as it pisses of the likes of 'John Beyer' and other anti-game fascists.'

So what does this all mean, well firstly free games for all of us Wii owners, "hurrah" I hear you say, well don't be
celebrating just yet, as even though this appears like a win for the general gaming population now, just look what
is around the corner that's right 'GTA IV DLC' and yet more bloody controversy[/size]
