The Daily Hotness: Demake me a sammich (09/08/08)

I’ve never heard of Demakes until today and thanks to Colette, I want to find out all there is to know about Demakes. Also, the music in this trailer for the Silent Hill 2 Demake is marvelous. 
Velvet Express is an awesome name for a porn game, MS knew about the defective Xbox 360s before launch, the C Blog recaps are back in action, and plenty more happened on Monday.
Also, little rant about people thinking $60 is too much for videogames. If you look at the history of videogame pricing, we’re lucky. I remember paying around $70 for Yoshi Safari for the SNES back in the day. Not to mention that I had no idea the game needed the Super Scope and K-Mart wouldn’t let me return the damn game … Bastards.
