Sony giving away a free PS3 Bundle Pack

I was looking at the Sony website because I need to get my PS3 serviced and I noticed they are having a contest. All you have to do is create a two minute stating why the Playstation 3 is the best Next-Gen console! If you win you get an 80 GB Playstation 3 and 5 pack of games. Not a bad deal for a couple of minutes of work. Click here for all the details. Happy video making.   read

Mountain Dew Game Fuel

I was watching TV the other day and I saw this commercial for a special flavor of Mountain Dew to coincide with Halo 3 release. I thought that there was no way that this could be a good thing. They are just pandering to us as gamers. Slap something to do with a video game on the bottle and people will but it, right? In order to conduct a scientific experiment I got my hands on a couple of bottles of the new Dew. Let me just tell you that the stuff is gross. It tastes like someone put a red bull into a mountain dew and then topped it off by drizzling liquid sugar in the flavor of cherry. It tastes like absolute garbage. While the ad is pretty good:
I have to ask are any gamers out there offended that they would give us such an inferior product and expect us to just take it? I imagine it is probably how the hip-hop community feels about the Boost Mobile ads or teachers/strippers feel about the new Carl's Jr Ad: [embed]44200:2323[/embed]
I personally feel insulted when companies take things I love and try to trick me into buying things just because they are loosely associated with that action. Am I the only one that can distinguish a shitty product from a good one regardless of what is on the bottle?   read

Guitar Hero as an Air Guitar?

This girl does know that you have to press the button when you play; not just dance around, right? Anyway she is hot in a trailer trash kind of way. It is also great to hear her say that she is the boss of the guitar.

Transformers: The Game Review

Well I got fooled again. I loved the Transformers Movie, I have seen it twice and the second time was better then the first. Rachel Taylor is my new crush in life. So as I walked into Best Buy to get The Godfather: Blackhand Edition for the Wii, on Reverend Anthony's recommendation, I stopped at the Transformers:The Game stand. I knew the game was going to suck, but I was so high on Transformers love that I actually talked myself into buying it. I did not want to buy the game for the Wii, since I was buying the other game and I have yet to get a PS3 so I bought the game on the PSP. The prospect of controlling my favorite Transformers overwhelmed my own knowledge that video games made for movies usually stink. The intro to the game was great, and I thought maybe I was wrong about this game. It turns out that the into is the best part of the game. This game really is not that much fun. For one, you do not get to choose between the Autobots and Decpeticons. They make you play on both sides. Secondly, The controls are suspect. For example, when you are controlling Blackout, you have to use the analog stick to go forward and backwards, the triangle button to aim up, the x button to aim down, the l-button plus the triangle or x button to move up or down, the R-button to fire the weapons, the down button on the d-pad to track with missiles, the right button on the d-pad to cycle the weapons, and the square and circle button to turn left and right. This is all too much to keep track of. I guess at some point you can control the Transformers in space, but this game sucks so bad that I can't bring myself to keep playing to get that far. The cut scenes are not very good, there is a little bit of the human element to move the game along. Did I mention that you cannot change Transform in midair? Because you can't, unless you are a helicopter then you can't Transform while you are on the ground. The camera does not follow the action very well. Every fight feels the same, the only difference is that in a boss battle you have to hit them a few more times. I would really stay away from the this game, I imagine that it is a little better on the PS3 or XBOX 360 but I cannot see it being a whole heap better. Save you money and go see the movie again, but don't buy this game. I cannot even recommended a rent on this game. It pains me to say, but avoid this game all together.

Overall Score: 2.5/10
Final Call: AVOID

But I must say that The Godfather: Blackhand Edition is my new favorite game for the Wii. I am having a blast playing that game.   read
