Out with the old, in with the new! The demo for Skate 2 dropped today, and it is great! My only complaint: It's too damn short! They did their job perfectly, because I can't wait for this game.

Anyway, in celebration, I have started the next chapter in my bail video series. I hope you enjoy.









Yep, you read that right. I know it's been forever since I made a bail video anyway, but this is the final skate. bail video montage I will ever be doing.

Before you say it, no, my 360 didn't die. Thursday marks the release of the skate 2 demo, and in two weeks we get the full game. Therefore, I am simply moving on to newer and better things. I'm really looking forward to making bails from skate 2 because of the various improvements.

Anyway, here it is: The Farewell to skate. I will embed the video, but please watch it in High Quality because it looks a whole lot better. Stupid YouTube compression.









My son and I are sitting here watching Wall-e, and I decided to bust out the laptop and check my e-mail. Lookit what I found in there:

This screams of a 419 Scam. It's probably a guy going for the "Pretending to be a chick who's going to inherit money from her dead father" scams.

I am thinking about replying from a throwaway email address, I love messing with scammers. WHat do you guys think?








Gripshift has been out for a year now on XBLA, and to celebrate, the folks from Sidhe Interactive contacted us to give away two copies.

If you want to enter, just head here and post a comment.

The two winners will be randomly chosen tomorrow night at 11:59pm EST by our staff robot and notified via private message. One entry per person please. Good luck everyone!

This contest is open to everyone, no matter where you live!

There are also a bunch of other site giving away copies of the game, and you can find them on the game's official forums. I'm not linking to them though because you should just go to our site first :P








Yes, I have a man-crush on Spider-Man. Like, I want to have his babies.

I'm not sure I would want to actually deliver a baby though. My wife didn't seem to have a lot of fun with our first, and probably won't with our second. I've had enough kidney stones to have that covered.

Anyway, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is the best Spider-Man game to come out since Spider-Man 2 (xbox, gc, ps2). It's like they took all the stuff that they got right from SM2, Ultimate, and 3 (nothing good came from Friend or Foe), smooshed it together, and added a dash of funny with a hint of God of War.

I give you now a short glimpse of the funny. Well, I think it's funny anyhow. This is a short exchange between Wolverine and Spidey about the black suit. No spoilers are included.

I have decided that since I have a bunch of DVDs, and I haven't watched most of them in a very long time, that I am going to hold a movie marathon for myself through the month of October. And one day in September.

Of course, all of these are going to be movies that fit in a Halloween theme. Let me explain what I mean by that though. I don't mean simply Horror/Thriller/Slasher flicks, but also movies that deal with the supernatural, aliens, or creatures of some sort.

Starting on September 30th, I am going to watch one movie a night until a double-feature on October 30th, and then the next day, I will post a blog about why I chose that particular movie (aside from the fact that it's something that I happened to own on DVD), and tell you why I think you might like it if you haven't already seen it.

I have a question though - do you guys think I should reveal my whole list up front, a little at a time, or just on a post-to-post basis? I'm not sure how I want to handle that.

Regardless, here is the first movie I am going to watch:
