  • Ubisoft! Ubisoft! Ubisoft!

    Ubisoft released its First Quarter Reports (2008-09) today. Sales for the company are up 25.8%. Titles launched in 2007-08, such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Assassin’s Creed and Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, are mainly what brought about these numbers. While this may seem like boring news to non-business people, the company did mention […]

  • Sony’s E3 Conference

    PS3 – Resistance 2 – Game play trailer, looks very nice. Fighting a GIANT Leviathan guy that’s bigger then most buildings. Showed another level, Twin Falls, Idaho. Giant battleships, all kinds of gigantic bad things, it looks very cool. – LittleBigPlanet – Used a level in the game to show sales graphs for Sony, basically. […]

  • Nintendo’s E3 Press Conference Overview

    Overall I was extremely disappointed…there really wasn’t anything announced for the Wii and DS that I need to get. Animal Crossing is cool and everything, but it’s not on the same level as a new Mario/Metroid/Zelda/etc. game. 3rd Party Games Wii – Star Wars The Clone Wars – Use Wiimote like a light saber. Coming […]

  • Castle Crashers E3 Screenshots

    The only thing I’m worried about is convincing Gmoney, Thrasher, and Robert to buy this game. I want to play it, but I don’t want to play it alone. I haven’t played a side scrolling beat-em-up in a long, long time… I love the artwork in the game, too. More images after the link…

  • Final Fantasy XIII Coming To Xbox 360

    Holy shit, this is great news. At the Microsoft E3 conference, it was officially announced by Square Enix president Yoichi Wada that Final Fantasy XIII is coming to the Xbox 360, and should be released alongside the PS3 version. That’s totally awesome…but I guess it sucks for Sony that’s it’s no longer exclusive. Also, Star […]

  • Square Enix E3 Lineup

    Square Enix has a hell of a lot of games coming out…interestingly, Final Fantasy XIII isn’t on the list, which kind of sucks but at the same time is OK because I don’t own a PS3 yet. Regardless, there are still a ton of great games coming out, the Chrono Trigger remake should be cool, […]

  • Gametrailers.com Top 10 Games For 2008

    I don’t know if I necessarily agree with their choices for the top ten, but it’s still a nice list of big games for 2008. I also think I’d be more pumped about some of the PS3 releases if I actually had a PS3.

  • Metal Gear Solid 4 Release Date – June 12, 2008

    Looks like the release date for Metal Gear Solid 4 has been set for June 12th. This news comes from Destination PlayStation, a retailer conference for Playstation goods. Yes, June 12 is a Thursday, but stranger things have happened. Also, apparently there is bundle coming out that contains MGS4, an 80GB PS3, and a DualShock […]

  • Grand Theft Auto IV Release Date Announced

    Press releases are funny things. Like, I’m sitting here trying to think what I should add to this post to make it the least bit interesting…and I can’t think of anything. What more can I say? Rockstar Games announced that the release date is April 29, 2008 (PS3 and Xbox 360). That’s it, that’s the […]
