On a friend’s recommendation, I’ve been listening to the immensely enjoyable 1UP Yours Podcast. It’s generally an insightful hoot (which may qualify as a Statistically Improbable Phrase). Recently, they’ve spent some time discussing their Crackdown impressions, and while they’ve praised it to the skies one spectre was raised: the dreaded ten hours. Though there is […]
Pitchers and catchers report in mere weeks, and so 2K Sports’ PR department is starting it’s long, slow reveal of MLB 2K7, an expected re-invention of the stagnant and often-buggy series, led by former MVP Baseball frontman Ben Brinkman, who left Electronic Arts to head up this third-party exclusive MLB title.
Since all we’re really getting […]
Yesterday, I took my family up to the Vail Valley for some skiing and fun in the snow with my wife’s family for the week, figuring that as long as I had an Internet connection at the home we rented, things would be fine. As it turned out, the home didn’t have any Internet connection […]
You won’t need them to bury Sony.
The venerable electronics giant has been taking heat from all sides since the PlayStation 3 launched to lukewarm reviews and high prices. Some of it - perhaps most of it - has been deserved.
However, only two months after PS3’s release, the world of Sony is a very different place.
With apologies to LL Cool J, of course.
From the time my plane took off from Denver yesterday morning to the time I landed back in the Mile High City, roughly 10 scant hours had passed. Suffice it to say that my sojourn to sunny San Diego wasn’t for vacation - but it was worth it.
But I do know when I’ll be back again - tonight.
I’m taking a quick sojourn to San Diego and back today to visit the SCEA San Diego studios and get a sneak peek at MLB ‘07.
I’m expecting to meet with All-Star third sacker David Wright of the Mets while I’m out there, and with any […]
I’m looking back on my initially-fruitless search for a PS3 in December and I’m trying to stifle a laugh.
While I still think the PS3 has loads of promise, the fact of the matter is that I really don’t do anything with it right now but view photos and play downloadable demos. It’s hard to believe […]
Regarding this weekend’s NFL conference championship games, that is.
ESPNvideogames.com used Madden NFL 07 to simulate the epic Colts-Patriots tilt and the less-heralded Bears-Saints showdown due to take place on Sunday.
Madden 07 had the Colts beating the deified Patriots, 23-21, and that actually sounds about right, though I suspect the score might be slightly higher. While […]
Games are part of the mainstream, part of the lives of most people in a certain age range. They talk on phones, use computers, and play videogames … yet we never see “Teen Thief Planned Crimes On Cell Phone” or “Excel Used To Plan Scam”. Use MySpace or play the PS2, and that’s another […]
Yes, I’m stealing Shawn’s title. He’s still in France, so he’ll never know if you don’t tell him. You can keep a secret … right?
Now my need for a Wii knows no bounds. I usually get out for a walk daily, but when it’s this cold … I don’t. The ability to burn […]
