Rock Band 2 Cometh

I’m really exited about Rock Band 2. While there hasn’t been much Rock Band playing at our place of late (due to my stupidity in breaking the drum pedal), Kate and I jump at every chance we get to…

The UI Still Burns. UI Problems in Soul Calibur IV

I’ve been enjoying Soul Calibur IV the past couple of weeks, it’s been frustrating but fun and challenging in such a way that I’m still coming back to try to perfect it. Unfortunately, my online game has been horrible and as such I’ve sworn off it. Instead, I’ve just relegated myself to only using grabs against the CPU – especially when fighting against Vader’s Apprentice - when I get too frustrated that I can’t land any moves at all!

But there are some things that are really distracting me when I’m playing the game, and I’m sad to say that It’s the UI. Sure it’s nice and polished, but there’s just too much of it sometimes, and sometimes there’s not enough.

Another credit under my belt

It’s just 4 more weeks until Tiger Woods 09 will be available for sale. Because I’m not a seasoned veteran just yet, I’m still somewhat excited about the third game I have helped create and the first title I’ve worked…

Giddy Anticipation over Soul Calibur IV

Just saw the Soul Calibur IV trailer. The game looks amazing. Although it makes me wonder about the single player campaign. I haven’t gotten a chance to play III, but the Weapon Master mode in II was very generic, and…

Day of the Tiger

So Tiger Woods came out today. For all you Tiger Woods loving fans, this year’s game is the best so far because I had a chance to work on it. Well… the entire team did an awesome job I think,…

Waiting for a Fallout

The trailer for Fallout 3 is out. That can only mean one thing: it’s actually coming. I’m psyched. Although I still have fears of first person Elder Scrolls RPG set in the Fallout universe, at least with the trailer I…

Giving Up, or Moving On?

I love my wife. I think she’s awesome. Serial! She was there with me the night before, and the night before the night before the Wii was released here in the States. Sure, there were some ulterior motives, the money…

I read the New York Times’ article on the new Xbox 360 Elite early today. And like a lot of other people, as I got close to the bottom of the article, I was hit with a surprise quote: We…

40 Hour Games? One Hour at a Time

There’s an article on Wired about a supposed myth of the 40 hour gamer. I dunno if I would call my self a hard-core gamer but I wouldn’t call myself a casual gamer. I’ve finished many a long RPG and…

This is probably the only time you’ll see one of these on this site. It’s not that I don’t think the Xbox 360 is good, at this point it’s looking much better then the PS3 - which every passing…

new comic

Had an increadibly busy week today. I didn’t even do the dishes. I’m actually not sure what I ended up doing this past week aside of going to work. It was one of those weeks I suppose. There was one thing that did stand out this week, in the terms of interesting stuff I find online, and that is VG Cats.
