My Wife Finally Beats Her First Video Game

My wife did not grow up as a gamer or even bother playing video games as a child. She had a younger brother, but their gap in age did not open up any good avenues for bonding. Not like the 16 month difference with my sister. (We played many...

 
 
 
 

Finally Beat That Guitar Homo

No, I'm not talking about Lou of Guitar Hero 3 or any of the Wiggles. I'm talking about Demyx in Kingdom Hearts 2. This battle has been pissing me off for quite awhile with his stupid water chords of melodic gayness. I'd rather fight Ansem ...

 
 
 

Poor Gamers Hate October On

Poor gamers, like myself, hate the months leading up until the holidays. It's all these damn awesome games that come out all at once. It's like the gaming industry blows their massive loads all over a underage Asian prostitute's face all at...

 
 
 

You'll give me $10 for THAT GAME!

Gamestop is running one of their 'bring-in-your-used-newgen-games-so we-can-oversell-it-at-high-ass-prices' deals. This deal ain't too bad, get an extra $10 credit for two games traded in. Sounds like I might be getting Phantom Hourglass be...

 
 
 

Books on your DS?

Codemasters is going to release a series of books for DS owners to snuggle up to on a cold winter night. Sadly, the books aren't like Hotel Dusk. I'm also impressed with the books they are picking up. This may spark my wife's interest more ...

 
 
 

Wii Zapper to come with a Game

God bless Nintnedo! They always like to throw us a bone when we buy a console or now accessory. The Wii Zapper which will be out in time for my wife's birthday...ha! (Hey its better than the gift I gave her last year on her day of birth...a...

What to buy next? (Wii)

So I got $40 and change hidden in my wallet from the wife. What to spend it on. I have plenty of cigars and beer to last to the next paycheck. I was thinking of getting something for my new Wii. I was going to throwdown the money on Wii Pla...

 
 
 

A Perfect Hot Game for the Wii

Listen up Sega. After watching the Japanese commercial for Ghost Squad and the Wii Zapper. It made me think of all the games I want to see on the Wii. Games like Lethal Enforcer, Silent Scope, Mad Dog Mcree, etc. and of course House of the ...

 
 
 

Wii On Hand

Finally got my hands on a Wii. I ended up going through Craigslist to get one which was weird. I never bought from there and only sold items. It was weird going to some strangers house with a pocket full of twenties. It was a good deal so I...

 
 
 

Preowneds @ Circuit City?

I just noticed something this morning while perusing through the DS games at circuitycity.com. Since when did they start selling Preowned titles? I'm sure its not just DS games either. I'm guessing this is only online since they don't have ...

 
 
 

Refurbished iPods Not Dropping in Price

Sonuvabeotch! The new iPods are fucking sweet. I would love to replace my 60Gb Video with one of the new ones, but thats not needed right now. Let alone, I've yet to fill this one. The wife on the other one wants a Nano for her Blazer. Cool...

 
 
 

Train Your Brain Woes

I know I'm not dumb but I can't start off with a good brain age. I finally bought my first title into this whole tickle your cerebral cortex type games. I picked up two Brain Age 2 games at Circuit City for $30. One for a co-worker and one...

 
 
 
 

Hotel Dusk Breaks The Norm

Thank you Savant for letting me borrow Hotel Dusk Room 215. I know you had to pry it from the wife-to-be. Your learning fast, 'bros before hos'. (This is by no way a dig or insult to his better half.) The game is fun for what it is. Its a s...

 
 
 

Fitness Craze In Video Games Gone Too Far?

I'm all for the thinning down of America's youth. Face it, we are fat fucks. We love to gorge ourselves on synthetic cholesterol flavors. Most of us won't eat vegetables unless they are deep fried in beer batter. Christ, Oreos never tasted...

 
 
 

Return to RPGs

Back in the days of being single with a lot of time on my hands, I've played a few video game RPGs. (Never any of the boardgame, multisided dice, card games...I never had friends who were into it so I never was around those types.) A few y...

 
 
 

Wii surpasses 360 Sales

Well, its being deemed over at Video Game Chartz that the Wii just outsold the Xbox 360. We won't even bring the PS3 into that last sentence. However, NextGen Wars still has the 360 in the lead by a million. So take the chart with a grain ...

 
 
 

N64 Game Makes It To The Wii

The title pretty much says it all. The title didn't say N64 brushed off, showered, worked out, eats healthy, has a colonic, exfoliated pours, tosses on expensive 3 piece suit, etc etc. If anything it may of tossed on a cheap clearance rack...

 
 
 

The First Native iPhone Game

It was only a matter of time before a native game made its way on to the ubergeek Apple fan's phones. Of course there was others prior but they weren't native applications. (One of them being iphonenes, a NES emulator). Hower, back to the ...

 
 
 

Own 2 Wii games but no Wii

This week I obtained two Wii games (ExciteTruck and Rayman) through trades and soon a Gamecube game(Mario Sunshine)...but nothing to play them on. Everytime I find a Wii in the store, I don't have the money available. Soon enough, hopefully...

 
 
 

Old Major Nelson Interview Finally Gets Net Time

I wrote for a few startup gaming sites in the past seven years with only one of them really taking off. (Good old XGP) Oneof the first sites I wrote for was an Xbox exclusive site called OnlyonXbox.net and I got myself a few perks as well ...

 
 
 

Which Handheld Gets Disgaea?

Check out this poll on NIS's website on which handheld gets Disgaea. NGAGE is not one of the choices so the two of you can stop right here before you start refreshing the poll page over and over. Who is deserving of this tactical RPG? Which...

 
 
 

Finally Wii Experience This Weekend

A bunch of friends and co-workers have a Wii since launch and I of yet to play or see a Wii in action (besides online videos and TV spots). So, at a birthday party I got a chance to play the Wii on a nice huge ass widescreen. I first wanted...

 
 
 

My Recent Game Bargain

A co-worker at work is selling off a lot of his gear due to the upcoming birth of twins. They have limited room so he started unloading lots of stuff and I was there to suck up some good deals. Let's look past that he gave me a 200CD change...

 
 
 

More Tom Nook Profit

When will this madness stop! Tom Nook is just raking in the bells at this point. Between plushes for those who want to rub up against Mable and Sable (MMMMMMM...sisters!) and figurines and handbags. Now Tom is throwing something new in hi...

 
 
 

Trading Games Woes

I use a website called Trade Games Now to trade my games with other gamers. This is a lot better that getting the few pennies that EB Games will throw on the ground in your direction. However, you have to make an even trade. So what the hel...

 
 
 

Deforestation of AC:WW

It is time to give up one of the first games that I overplayed on my Nintendo DS, and of course it is another game a grown gaming man should not be playing…Animal Crossing Wild World. One of those damn addicting games that we played at wo...
