The Weekend Wrapup (May 2nd-4th)

May 5, 2008

It’s been seven days and counting. Seven days since I purchased Mario Kart Wii, and seven straight days that Rachel has played it. It’s unprecedented. Dave and Danielle came over yesterday afternoon and we played some more, finally unlocking the last two circuits so that we now have every level available. It was also a […]

The Weekend Wrapup (April 18th-20th)

April 21, 2008

  Well, I forgot that I had a big event to go to all Sunday, so that put a little cramp in the time I had to play this weekend, but my gameplay was just about what you’d expect–I immersed myself a bit in Oblivion.  In the mean time, I was able to catch up […]

Team Fortress 2 Details, Call of Duty 4 Frags Halo, and No More Heroes

January 23, 2008

  I got a chance to download Undertow this morning, and played a round or two online.  It’s very much like an underwater arcade version of Team Fortress 2, with two teams battling for a number of control points, but in 2D.  I can see where it would be fun with some friends together.  Since […]

Smash Bros. is Delayed (again), a New Team Fortress 2 Map, and Your First Gaming Experience

January 16, 2008

  By now you’ve probably heard the news that Super Mario Smash Bros.  has been delayed yet again, this time for another month.  I guess we shouldn’t be surprised anymore, but Nintendo’s done nothing but delay their first party titles since the Wii launched.  Who cares though, right? Nintendo certainly doesn’t–their console is still the hottest product […]
