Tiger Woods 10 Review

Posted: June 28, 2009 in Games

This year’s edition of Tiger Woods PGA Tour is out. Here is my review. This is your standard Tiger Woods game. You start off by either just playing or by creating a custom golfer to play with. As before you can use the Xbox Live Vision camera to put your own face in the game. […]

I recently purchased the hardback edition of the complete Metal Gear Solid Sons of Liberty comics. This is a great read and an even pleasure on the eyes. The story follows the video game but also goes beyond and covers some stuff that was happening behind the scenes in the story. The art style of […]

Rock Band Unplugged Review

Posted: June 24, 2009 in Games

Rock Band has finally gone portable, here is my review of Rock Band Unplugged for the PSP. I was a bit skeptical to play a Rock Band game with no peripherals. However Rock Band Unplugged works on a different level. The game plays more along the lines of the Harmonix classic games Frequency and Amplitude. […]

Star Wars CCG(Decipher)

Posted: June 22, 2009 in Games

I used to play this game a lot back in 1996 and 1997 and continued to buy the cards up until the Death Star 2 expansion. Then the toy store where I worked and bought all my Star Wars CCG cards was sold to new owners and I was never able to find any other […]

Posted: June 20, 2009 in Games

I finally got the Ghostbusters video game Thursday afternoon. I was really looking forward to this game and was disappointed when it was temporarily cancelled only a couple months before its release in 2008. Thankfully Atari picked up the publishing rights and we now can enjoy this game. The game is essentially Ghostbusters 3. The […]

This week’s free games are the Dismount games. These are very fun games where you control a few factors and then hit the “dismount” button to see your actions take effect. The first one I played was Stair Dismount. In this one you have a ragdoll at the top of some stairs. You push this […]

I recently got my hands on Disturbed newest album, “Indestructible.” I remember reading various interviews about this album when the band was working on it and they said how it is much more like The Sickness than their other albums. I was excited to hear that since their first album is still to date my […]

Just Can’t Get Enough

Posted: June 14, 2009 in Books

I recently purchased the pop culture book Just Can’t Get Enough – Toys, Games, And Other Stuff From The ’80s That Rocked by Matthew Robinson and Jensen Karp. This is an excellent look at many of the things from the 80s that I grew up with. Masters of The Universe, Alf, Madballs, G.I. Joe and […]

1998 – The Greatest Year In Gaming?

Posted: June 13, 2009 in Games

I’d been reflecting back to 1998, I found a VHS tape I recorded with the 1998 special episode of Cinematech that aired on G4 back in 2005. I got to thinking about all the great games that came out that year and agree that 1998 was the greatest gaming year ever. 1998 was a transitional […]
