You got just a couple seconds of it in the video they showed at the Sony press conference, but that was enough to make me want to know more.
Yet another game where your character starts with amnesia. She goes by the name Kat and you'll get plenty of comic book styled cut scenes that you flip through on the touch screen. And she is into some hand to hand combat, giving you combos and special moves you can use to fight through this world in. You also get to defy gravity and control where you land by tilting the Vita.
As a new IP with a heavy anime influence the game has my attention. I'm really looking forward to learning more about this game as the details surface. And if I find a way to get myself a Vita this game has a great chance at joining my collection.
And here is a short video of the game.

seriously it's a game? Where the fuck is the game play then?
The video looks good and I've enjoyed the character class reveals they have given us. But are we buying a movie or a game? Why at E3 would you not show how good the game plays? The pre E3 videos were better. But it is a Star Wars game so it would sell like crazy with a black box without a picture because of the army of fanboys out there. But not even a release date, what a load of crap. Come on guys.
Not the E3 video
I'll add the E3 video when they upload it.
Here it is, not the official one yet.
How much longer do you think they will drag this out? Will we be seeing it again at E3 next year? I want it to hurry up and get on the PC so they can port it to a console for me.

These videos look good, but I'm just getting another DLC pack for Black Ops, why the rush?
I guess they showed this on the Microsoft press confrence since they get the DLC first. As you see the gameplay you can see that these systems aren't dead yet. The graphics for in came look better than some of the CG in other games.
But with these games being put out so ofter I hesitate to buy another one. The DLC is still a week away from bieng released on the PS3, but they have another game coming this soon. I can understand that they want to cash in. But are they just putting these games out to close together? They don't really change very much from game to game, so you are mostly paying for new levels. Right now Just the base game and two DLC packs have people out $90 and now they want to see another $60. And there will be another one, and another one. When will gamers get tired of having their wallets get hit constantly? You add some underwater play, that's cool but what else will really be new?
I enjoy the games offline, but the multi-player is what keeps these games popular and if you release them this close together you will kill off that fan base. Hell I probably wouldn't have COD Black Ops on my shelf if it was for being able to play online with friends and family.
A very weird cartoon will probably mean a very weird game.
The game Ugly Americans: Apocalysegeddon is based on a TV show on Comedy Central. If you never watched it I can explain real quick. The main character is a social worker for monsters. He helps them adapt and find a place in the world. They go though some really weird shit. His roomate and friend is a sex obsesed zombie. His co-worker is a drunk wizard. His girlfriend is a sucubus. And his boss is a demon trying to bring the world to it's end. There is also a human cop who is always trying to arrest or kill his monster clients. So yeah it's pretty strange. I'm not sure how they are planning to turn it into a game though. On gamasutra they say it will be a four player side scrolling shooter that you can download for $10. There are supposed to be more details given at E3.

I guess they decided we just weren't hyped enough.
Let me just start by saying, "Holy Shit!!!"
Sweet Tooth busts out a sick ass Mech and brings some hell to Dollface. But two can play that game. The chance to play as a bad ass mech in this game brings it up to a whole other level for me. I was just short of drooling when I saw this. If they offer this for everyone the game is going to be insane. Hell if the mechs are only available in one mode of play I'll be fine with that. This is a franchise that I have loved from the start and they are bringing out all the tricks to be relevant again.
What else could we ask for? Can you think of anything missing? Or do you think they are trying to hard?

I got the code to download the demo this morning and thought I'ld make a video for those of you who missed out.
The game that took 12 years is about to be here, but if you were a First Access member you should get a code for the demo today. So check your email. If you didn't get the demo don't worry I have some low quality video of it.
The first video covers the intro and a fight with a big fucking alien. It goes up to the start of the second part of the demo so you'll see some driving also.
The second video picks up just after you jump the canyon with your monster truck and get put back on foot. This will lead up to a fight where you have to throw explosives at a spaceship until it explodes. So far I just keep dying.
If I get past that I'll add a part 3 later. Until then here are my thoughts on the demo.
First off the game is made be Gearbox (the people who made Borderlands) so they know how to make a fun FPS. And I have the demo on PS3, but it should be about the same on the 360. Once the game starts you get a couple laughs and a fight. The controls here are pretty typical for any FPS. After you take down that first big alien you find out that Duke was playing a game. And he is using a Xbox 360 control. So that was funny to me, and made me wonder if he'll be playing on the PS3 control for the Xbox version. After the cut scene you get to drive Duke's monster truck. It handles like crap, but you get to run over some aliens and jump a canyon. Then you are back on foot. The pig face aliens seem to be rendered pretty nicely here. The graphics might not be cutting edge, but they aren't to bad. I was surprised not to here to much talk from Duke, but what he says does change as you play. And some if it is funny, but just some of it. Overall it is pretty much what you would expect from Duke Nukem had it not taken 12 years to make.
So now to pass judgment on the game. If you are new to the series or looking for a great FPS I'm going to say rent it first. But if you have been waiting for this game go right ahead and buy it, you'll get the game you have been waiting for.
Well thanks to it taking forever to upload to YouTube I was able to finish the demo. There was a RPG hidden in the little shack next to the mini gun, and that got me through the fight. You head down into the mine and get to fight a little more and ride in the rail cars Indian Jones style. After some more shooting you find some gas and make your way back to the monster truck and after you gas it up the demo ends. So you get to try out the handgun, shotgun, devastator, shrink ray, rpg, ripper, rail gun, pipe bombs, and some explosives. Not a bad selection for a demo.
And here are the last two videos. #3 is going through the mines and #4 is getting out then getting to see a censored version of the trailer they already released. It might have all fit in one video had a not got lost a couple times and realized that there was a little plat forming to be done.
So that is the entire demo. What did you think? Besides that I need to practice before making a video and that I need to download some video editing software.
But it's glitchy as hell. An error has occurred (80710D36) get used to seeing it for now.
Source 2 I'm on it right now
Sony has got the store back up and running (like crap though) and I'm not seeing anyone else talking about it yet. For once insomnia turned out to be a good thing. The page above says that out thanks for putting up with this shit pack isn't in effect yet, "it's in the final stages of testing". WTF? As you go through the store expect a lot of error messages, but backing out once or twice will fix it, yes Sony is still screwing you. The money I added to my wallet was there and ready so hopefully this will be the case for the rest of you. There are a few demos up, and some wallpapers, plus some other crap. It's all listed on that site up there. And on a quick look through Sonic 2 and Abe's Exodus are both free for Playstation Plus members, I'm hoping I can still get these when they activate our free month of the service. It would be nice to play through them again, and I'ld be done way before the trial is done.
So there you have it Jimmys, the PSN store has been resurected and it like any other zombie has some issues. Are you glad it's back? Ready to give Sony your hard earned money again? Pissed that you have to wait longer to get you welcome back stuff? Will you be able to trust Sony again?

After all the hype and drama about the game here's some good news.
"With the Duke Nukem Forever demo just around the corner for members of the First Access Club there, Gearbox Software and 2K Games are thrilled to announce that the First Access Club benefits don't stop there!
Any First Access Club member who has registered as of today will receive the very first downloadable Duke Nukem Forever multiplayer add-on pack for free when it's released!* Surprise!
Thanks again for all of your support, and always bet on Duke!
*Platform availability and eligibility is subject to local laws and regulations."
So we will get the first multiplayer add on pack for free, now that was worth it. I got my access free by getting a game I already wanted (Borderlands GOTY) so getting the demo was a nice bonus. But this looks like the knew the fans were still looking for something better after the crap with the date change and a demo just over a week before the game comes out. Gearbox and 2K games have made a real smart choice here. I was surprsed that there wasn't some joke about Duke coming more than once. Maybe they are saving it for later.
So what do you think now? Was this a decent promo afterall? Or are you salty about a DLC announcement before the game even drops?
Hail to the King baby!
So how many of you have those old receipts?
GameStop has stated that they are going to honor those old pre-orders. You will still need your receipt, and you're going to want to confirm it with your local store. This goes back to the pre-orders from Babages, and as a bonus you will be upgraded with Duke's Big Package. Get ready, the biggest joke in gaming is about to hit the shelf.
Want to try RPGS in a new way?
This is going to be a 4 player co-op rpg. Be ready do get online and team up in what looks to be another dark rpg. This is being brought to you by Certain Affinity, the people who made Age of Booty.
"It takes everything we've learned about high action from working on shooters like Halo and Call of Duty," claims the studio, "and everything we love about the fantasy genre, but gets rid of all that tedious backpack rummaging, and boring dialog!"
Here is another game for you E3 Checklist Jimmy. They say expect more details then.
and here is a link to the future, says it was posted tomorrow. http://games.on.net/article/12676/Join_the_Crimson_Alliance
Here is an in game shot of the game from E3. Even as a downloadable game this needs some polish if it is going to sell.
A new RPG is headed our way. But there isn't much to go on.
So I thought try wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Eye:_Demonicon and nothing really there.
The hunt finally gives me something http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Eye , In Germany The Dark Eye was bigger than D&D. It wasn't even published in English until 2003, but the pencil and paper RPG started in 1984. It became Realms of Arkania for some books and PC games. You had you basic classes adventurer, warrior, dwarf, elf and mage. Later they added rider, druid, priest or wood elf.
But I'm seeing nothing on the new game. But the first bit of art caught my attention, so I'll be keeping an eye on it.
