I wish I were making this up...
So every now and then you see something online and think somebody has to be making that up. This, friends, is really one such fine example. During a drug raid in March in Florida, detectives were caught playing bowling on Wii Sports during the nine-hour raid.

The Polk County sheriff, Grady Judd, announced that an investigation would be launched to look into the matter. Further, he cites this as a "mistake". Um...yeah; a mistake? Did they accidently turn on the Wii, accidently pick up the Wiimote, and accidently start bowling? This could, perhaps, be the most ignorant thing I've heard in a long, long while. To make matters worse, did these detectives not know that they were being recorded by security cameras? What level of competence is that? Shouldn't detectives trained to do drug raids be able to recognize a security camera? This is just another case of tax dollars at their finest.
Are there going to be PS2 and Dreamcast games available on the PSN?
According to some supposed notes from a SCEA/Sega meeting, it was discussed between the two companies that there was interest in bringing PS2 and Dreamcast games to the PSN. The notes hint at Sega providing SCEA with a list of Dreamcast games that they're interested in releasing, and Sony will decide which ones they want as exclusives. Furthermore, SCEA allegedly agreed to provide heavier marketing support for games that Sega agreed to keep exclusive longer. Also mentioned in the notes, SCEA is interested in selling all PS2 games on the PSN. There's no specific definition of all, but I can't imagine it being a very literal all. In either case, the notes do seem to suggest that in some capacity, the PS3 owners may be able to get their hands on certain PS2 and Dreamcast games via the PSN.
My 360 has finally stopped... or has it?
Trying to get online with the XBox live right now. My XBox 360 freezes everytime I sign in. If I disconnect the network, it works fine until I plug the network back in and attempt to sign on.
Oh, also the dvd drive won't open half the time. That's a new one. Had to give it the ol' clippy treatment.
I've done all the usual shit, erased my profile and recovered it (even done that on an old, formatted HD), cleared the cache, WTF jimmy? On fucking ODST day? FML.
C'mon Microsoft, you fuckin' jimmys!
Ok, so how should I say this as simply as possible?

Is that simple enough?
You could find a million and one things to do that are more enjoyable than this game!
Battlestorm:field of honor is a team based old school style shooter in the beta phase for pc. At first i looked forward to playing this game. The storyline seemed engaging, the artwork vibrant,the premise sound, but the game play was horrible starting with the game setup options. Since the implemetation of windows live, I've gotten used to having the option of using my xbox360 controller, and if ever a game could have benefited from it's use it is this one. T he keyboard configuration just seems weird and unresposive when playing Battlestorm.
My next complaint is the fact that this game is online only and because it sucks it took me days to even find others to play with, eventhough thousands have downloaded the beta! That is never a good sign about the quality of a game. If you plan on trying out Battlestorm you may want to invest in plenty of vodka and maybe order up some sexy escorts to pass the time while you wait in the lobby for others to join you ! Once you do get the required 8 players....no ther game won't let you start with less...hopefully that's a feature they'll be smart enough to change......you will need plenty of coffee to stay awake through the rather unispiring gameplay.
Hopefully this game will never see the light of day.........maybe they can send copies to all known terrorist and they will play it and committ suicide within a half hour of playing it. i wish i could get back the time i wasted playing this game. I would write more....but because i played this game i must now take psych meds to keep me from harming myself or others. Please.......don't try this game unless they release it and sell it for under $5.00...anything more than that is absurd.
FML! I'm gonna play Ghostbusters on Professional!
- Well let tell you what happen I was at school doing work before I left the room to get something I last remember putting my Iphone in my hand, and the next I'm leaving to my truck to find out WTF did I do with my phone. Now all I have is a go phone from Best Buy because my contract expires in July so since they don't and I mean Apple have lost or theif warrenty that there charging me $500 or add another line and waste 20 extra dollars on my bill. I've been so sad that I went back to playing Ghostbusters on professional, it was a pain in the ass but I finally beat it and got more trophies I tell you the only thing that makes that hard is the A.I. When I go for the revival I do it quick oh but if the computer has to revive you they take 5 mins. to position themselves so they can revive and by that time you all dead so big pain in the ass. But I still recommend this game fun, story awesome acting is brilliant same guys from the movies. And the controls right on the fning money. If you haven't play it yet your differentially missing out it's the 3rd movie you need to play it. Alrighty then I'm done fuck you apple and thank god for Ghostbusters peace,
My review of Bioshock for the Xbox 360!
After I finished playing Bioshock, I knew immediately that I'd played an amazing game. That feeling after finishing a game where the game just sticks with you, I felt that with Bioshock. It was an incredibly emotional game. The mystery of the world of Rapture sticks with you long after the game ends. And yet, frankly, at first I had a hard time summing what it was that made Bioshock so amazing. It really left me at a loss for words, and I had to postpone writing this review for several days so I could actually figure out what made the game so amazing.
For starters the atmosphere in Bioshock is amazing. And by atmosphere I mean more than visuals. Sure, the visuals are amazing (a bit on that in a minute), but the whole game's presentation is just immersive and amazing. I don't think I've ever felt so totally involved in a game before. The world of Rapture is just so intriguing and well conceived that, despite it's obvious sci-fi setting, it seems almost plausible. The world is well developed; it's as if the developers actually mapped out every square inch of Rapture. The problem with all of this is that, while the city of Rapture is presented as being this huge underwater world, you really feel confined to the small corridors and buildings the game lets you into. A breathtaking opening cinematic makes Rapture feel huge, but you'll quickly feel disappointed once you find out you're constrained to the path the developers put you on. With all the attention to detail in the world, it's a shame that they confined you so much.
In coordination with Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo has already dropped the price of their Wii console.
According this recent Best Buy circular, the Wii has taken a $50 price cut. Was this done simply because all the other console manufactures have dropped their prices? I'd say that's a big Yes! That's not to say that it wasn't a smart move on Nintendo's part, because I'd have to say it's one of the best moves they could make. The appeal of the Wii when this generation started was the price point; it was affordable enough to buy for a kid for Christmas. In other words, it wasn't a $600 or even $400 system. So when the generation launched, $250 seemed like more than fair. Now that Microsoft has slashed their prices, and Sony has done even heavier slashing on their prices, Nintendo has to either keep up or get out. Certainly a price cut makes the most sense, because their price point is the driving factor behind their success.
I hate to wander too far off track, but I have to wonder something while we're on the subject of price cuts (I would normally refrain, but it involves price cuts and the Wii, so I'll go for it). Now that the Wii has taken a price slash, why the hell are we still paying full retail price for two-year old games? Super Paper Mario is now two years old, as is Twilight Princess, and both games are still retailing at $50! How does it happen that a system takes a price slash before it's own launch titles?
Anyways, with that off my chest, I'll bid you adieu. And if you don't have a Wii, it might be more worth it at the $200 price point.
Persona 3 is set to hit the PSP!
Okay, so yesterday I did a write-up on the upcoming release (or should I say re-release) of Revelations: Persona, now for the PSP. Now I've stumbled across a little bit of news that, while old, may still excite. Apparently, Atlus is bringing Persona 3 to the PSP. There's not much in the way of details available at this time, although an apparent Japanese release date of November 1 does seem to be floating around. A Famitsu scan also suggests that there may be a new, female character thrown into the mix. Furthermore, it seems that you'll now be able to manually control your entire party.
So we've got Revelations: Persona: check. We've got Persona 3: check. Now where the bloody hell is Persona 2? It seems that somewhere in the mist, the second installment in the Persona series has been forgotten. It's a sad, sad shame, but here's to hoping that someday we can play all four games in the Persona series on our loved portable.

According to a report from Blizzard, the mega-popular MMO is littered with glitches galore.
According to wow.com (and also discussed to some length at the Game Developers Conference), Blizzard is reporting that World of Warcraft is plagued with almost 180,000 glitches that they're tracking. What that means in layman's terms is that there's almost 180,000 problems with the game that are either fixed, being fixed, or not yet in the process of being fixed. Unfortunately Blizzard didn't give a breakdown of where these glitches stand, but given the immense number of patches that have been released - and certainly the almost certain prospect that a ton more will be on the way - I'd say a good number of the glitches are in some stage of being fixed or being worked on. However, each new expansion pack is bound to breed a whole slew of new glitches in the process of fixing the old.
Is it surprising that World of Warcraft is plagued with that many bugs, or is it more surprising that Blizzard would come right out with such a staggering number?
Capcom wants to hear your ideas for future cross-over fighting games.
Gamers are a vocal group of individuals. They all have their opinions, and there's not a single one that's afraid to say what's awesome and what...well...isn't so awesome. Capcom has decided to get ideas from the place where ideas brew up best: from the gamers, of course.
If you hope on over to Capcom Unity, then you can give them your ideas for the next cross-over spectacular. The company is encouraging all ideas, from the amazingly serious to the absolutely comical. You get some cool Capcom swag if you happen to be their favorite.
I don't know if they're actually going to end up using any of these ideas or not, but either way it should at the very least be a humorous thing to read.
Yep, the big game's sequel was given a release date earlier today.
Bioshock was a great game when it launched on the Xbox 360 and PC, and it was still great when it was released as a port on the PlayStation 3, but almost from the minute it came out fans were speculating a sequel. Of course, 2K was glad to give in to the requests and announced that there would, in fact, be a sequel to the atmospheric shooter. Well, today there's more information in the form of a solid release date.
According to a press release, 2K is committing on the release date of February 9, 2010. This time around, the game is launching simultaneously on the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3. As many fans are already aware, this time around you get to step into the boots of the iconic Bioshock nemesis, a Big Daddy. The press release earlier this morning also confirmed that the sequel would contain a multiplayer component, which is something which split the fans of the first one; some thought it was needed, while others thought that the atmospheric touches would be lost in multiplayer. While we can only assume that the multiplayer will be confined to online experiences, it hasn't been mentioned rather or not the multiplayer will be available via split-screen. What we do know about the multiplayer component is that it will be a unique module as opposed to throwing two characters into the story designed for one. Yes, that's right; there will be two stories in Bioshock 2, and the only way to experience both stories will be to play the game both solo and multiplayer.
February 9, 2010; mark it on your calendars.
