One Handed 360 Controller

Posted by Damon on March 18, 2008

52.jpg

If you thought playing Xbox 360 video games required one hand too many then Ben Heck, world renouned modder, has the solution for you. Ben has taken a 360 controller and built a custom shell for it and refitted the board to fit into a handy dandy single handed controller. The controller does require you to use your leg or another surface to move the right analog stick but thats a small price to pay to be able to have your hand constantly on your soda or beer while fragging n00bz in Halo 3.

God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP) – Review (Update)

Posted by Damon on March 18, 2008

god_o_war_coo_box.jpg

UPDATE: Seems I finished God of War: Chains of Olympus and the game clocks in at a completely less than average 6 hours and 18 minutes plus the time it takes to fight the final boss. This being said I am altering the Final Verdict of 5/5 to 4.25/5, which is still tremendously good. Read the rest of this entry »

God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP) – Review 5/5

Posted by Damon on March 16, 2008

god_o_war_coo_box.jpg

A couple of days ago God of War: Chains of Olympus for the PSP showed up on my doorstep, literally, and I have no idea who left it there, was weird. My birthday was Friday so I’m guessing someone got me a present and delivered it in a unique way, but after a bit of thought as to how Kratos showed up on my doorstep I grabbed my PSP and popped in my game.

Posted by Lynn on March 14, 2008

livtyler_175x125.jpg

According to Metro.co.uk, apparently, 45-year-old Robert Boyd from Broadlands held up a lingerie shop by knifepoint while dressed in a wig, hat and sunglasses. His defense at the time was supposedly that he truly believed that he was a Night Elf from the role playing game Shadowrun, specifically, a Night Elf shaman named Beho. Read the rest of this entry »

Reaper Returns!

Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

reaper.jpg

UPDATE: While flipping through channels tonight I caught couldn’t find anything on TV so I decided to watch a rerun of Reaper on CW for background noise while i wrote. I glimpsed up to see Sam on a dock and thought to myself “self, when was there an episode with Sam on a dock?”, so I checked the original air date for the show and it was today! Reaper didn’t get canceled!! Just last week I read about how it was canceled and people were pissed then low and behold I’m watching a new episode tonight. Kudos to CW for either not canceling Reaper or listening to the fans and bringing it back. The rumors I hear about Supernatural being canceled better be false as well!

Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

angelina-jolie-wanted-movie.jpg

I apologize for such a focus on movies lately, there’s just so many trailers coming out lately. This is the last one for a while, I promise (I hope). Wanted is a movie that I caught a trailer for a while back and it looks awesome and will be out on July 27th! Assassins, defying the laws of physics, Angelina Jolie and lots of action, how can you pass that up. The trailer speaks for itself so here it is, the Wanted trailer.

Go Speed Racer! Go! … oh god

Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

speed-racer-1.jpg

Ok before I post the trailer lets take a minute to let everything soak in: you have two guys, brothers in fact, kinda fresh off their world wide fame from giving us The Matrix movies, which are some of the most famous moives ever made, sitting in their mom’s basement one day trying to come up with their next hit, the movie that brings them back to fame when they booth look at each other and in blissful synchronization say “Speed Racer!”? Come on! Seriously? Just look at that picture! How crappy must your career be to even think of wearing ANY of those outfits? Jeesbus! Now don’t get me wrong, the movie may be a craptacular hour and a half long bad trip on acid while some stranger pokes you with a fork experience awesome. Who knows. Anyway here it is in all its neon-O-rific glory, the Speed Racer trailer.

P.S. There are ninjas! WTF! With the level of technology that is displayed in the movie the most efficient way to kill someone is a ninja?? Why not just throw a stick in his cars spokes during a race while they are at it.

Lost Boys: The Tribe – Trailer

Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

the_lostboys2.jpg

MTV.com recently released the world premiere trailer for The Lost Boys: The Tribe, the long awaited sequel to the original The Lost Boys that will hit rental shelves in July, yep, a straight to DVD movie. I am up in the air about this one, The Lost boys is a classic and I’m not sure it warranted a sequel but that doesn’t mean it will suck (heh suck). The sequel is set 21 years after the original movie which coincides with the fact it is coming out 21 years after the original. There are definite links to the original movies like The Frog brothers and the Coreys (both Haim and Feldman, time has not been kind to either). None the less, here it is, the trailer for Lost Boys: The Tribe after the jump.

These days there is a lot of good stuff to watch on network television, you got your Heroes, Prison Break, House, Supernatural, Grey’s Anatomy, My Name is Earl, Scrubs, blah blah blah and even the plethora of C.S.I’s.

The Incredible Hulk Trailer

Posted by Damon on March 12, 2008

edward-norton-incredible-hulk.jpg

Well as promised, here is the OFFICIAL trailer for the newest incarnation of the not so jolly green giant, The Incredible Hulk! To be honest, not too shabby, I am kind of impressed with what i saw but what I didn’t like was The Abomination (Tim Roth). He kind of looked like a giant boney meat puppet on steroids. Oh well. The full trailer after the jump.

My Girl Gamers Can Kick your Male gamers Butts!

Posted by Lynn on March 12, 2008

Worldwinner apparently performed a survey that men and women are evenly bloodthirsty when it comes to their competiveness.

Apparently, the survey discovered that both sexes share the same goal, which is to kick the opposite sex’s ass! It seems that women, about 39% of them, seek out competition practically daily whereas only 31% of men do. Read the rest of this entry »

BlizzCast Has Its Very Own Podcast (‘Bout Time)

Posted by Damon on March 12, 2008

blizzcast.jpg

Ok, I have been awake a total of 6 minutes so you will have to excuse me if this article is either nonsensical or not on par with my regular ones. Last night while logging into World of Warcraft for the umpteenth time, man they had some server lag issues, I took a second to actually read the launch links and found out that Blizzard has started it’s own podcast series.

Sending Us Back Into the Kitchen? WTF?

Posted by Lynn on March 12, 2008

51ozmafp2fl__aa280_.jpg

Ok, I am sure that most you women agree, the Wii is a great console! But WTF were they thinking when they made “Cooking Mama: Cook Off”??

Are they implying that we should be back in the kitchen cooking? And if we are not doing it in real life, then we should do it in game? Come on, it is bad enough that not only did they created the game, but also made utensil attachments! I feel like the prerequisite for this game is to barefoot and pregnant.
