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. Pics after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

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 »

My Girl Gamers Can Kick your Male gamers Butts!

Posted by Lynn on March 12, 2008

leftlogo.jpg

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.

Unnamed 360 Addon Has Serious Promise

Posted by Damon on March 11, 2008

The guys over at KontrolFreek seemed to have come up with a great idea: allow gamers to actually have precision control when using a thumbstick! Why Microsoft or Sony didn’t think of this before is beyond me because this is a no brainer. Read the rest of this entry »

Max Payne Movie – First Look

Posted by Damon on March 11, 2008

markspayne_news.jpg

Everyone favorite gun sporting constipational (is that even a word?) vigilante is making his way to the silver screen ala Mark Wahlberg. That’s right, this is the first leeked photo of Marky Mark as Max Payne minus the pursed lips. The hype around this movie is very low right now with not much more than “we are making a Max Payne movie staring Mark Wahlberg” being said but I’m sure as time goes on we will hear more about this one. Not sure if Max Payne is the game I would have chosen to adapted into movie format but I guess someone liked it. The best part of the game, which is the drug induced slow motion scenes, better be done right is all I have to say. From what I hear they are shooting (heh shooting) for a PG-13 rating which is a horrible move, but hey, who knows right. Like always, expect more on this academy award winner as time goes on.

Being a Chick Has Its Perks…hehe

Posted by Lynn on March 11, 2008

girlgamer1.jpg

So as I stated in a previous blog, I am a female gamer. While playing WoW today, I experienced the ignorant statement of “girls don’t play WoW!” Now of course, this started an all out discussion of a woman’s participation in video games.

If you are a female gamer, or one of those that play a female toon, you know just as well as I do, that having a pair of breasts makes it a lot easier for you to group in major instances and sometimes even gives you special “perks”. Read the rest of this entry »

Spotlight: Quest Helper (WoW Addon)

Posted by Damon on March 10, 2008

questhelper.jpg

Todays spotlight is on an addon for World of Warcraft called QuestHelper. If you play WoW then you know what an addon is but just incase you don’t I’ll explain. See, you start a game with an install out of the box and it is all ready and raring to go, and that’s all good, but sometimes you aren’t happy with a certain way the game is made. Lets say you aren’t happy with how the UI, or user interface, looks or you just want “more” from the game, if this is the case you would install addons. Read the rest of this entry »

God of War and the PSP

Posted by Damon on March 10, 2008

god_o_war_coo.jpg

By now everyone is familiar with the God of War franchise and most hold it in high regard as one of the best franchises to date. Watching Kratos running around whipping his swords around at the badguys as they fly around like little pixelated projectiles after being thwomped by a massive combo. Will God of War: Chains of Olympus keep the franchise going? Most certainly! Read the rest of this entry »

From a Female’s Perspective – March 9, 2008

Posted by Damon on March 9, 2008

Hiyas guys and gals! Yup, I am a “girl” and I love to game! Whether I am spending 10 hours pwning newbs in the World of Warcraft, kicking some ass at Magic the Gathering, or playing the Wii and/or 360, there is no denying the fact that I have a set of breasts and love to have that controller in my hands. I am more of an RPG girl myself, and mmm do I love the MMOs. Read the rest of this entry »
