TGS Roundup

October 9, 2008

Lot’s of good news today from the Tokyo Game Show–here are the bits that interest me: New Resident Evil 5 trailer–very much like a movie trailer, with new cinematic footage.  March is going to be a very decent month for gaming not only for the below video, but for… Star Ocean 4!  The game’s release […]

Rumor: Wii HD to be Launched in 2011

October 1, 2008

What They Play’s feature article about a rumored 2011 release of an HD version of the Nintendo Wii was little surprise to me.  If you remember, the 360 launched in November of 2005, and is about to enter its fourth year.  The normal 5-6 year cycle would put the next generation of consoles at 2010-2011.  […]

The Olympics are Ruining My Life

August 12, 2008

Ha!  I know, dramatic, right?  Seriously though, I’m an absolute Olympics addict.  When they hit they suck up all the time I have.  On Saturday, I “accidentally” recorded over 30 hours of coverage without knowing it, and it erased everything else Rachel had on our DVR.  As you can imagine, she was ecstatic…;)  Anyway, I […]

The Weekend Gamer (August 8th-10th)

August 8, 2008

The last two weeks have been a stressful time, but I feel that things may now be getting better.  I’ve had more time over the last 48 hours to consider more gaming time, and have spent that time playing several old titles and a new one. I got invited back into my old Halo 3 […]
