The trailer for Team ICO’s new release has popped up over at PlasyStation LifeStyle. I may have to return my geek card for admitting this, but I have never played Ico. I was a great fan of Shadow of Colossus though. I don’t want to ruin this footage with too many…

Dark Void Ads Infect Bionic Commando?

It seems like only yesterday that I was defending advertisements in Bionic Commando. Oh snap, it was yesterday. You can imagine then how horrid I felt when I fired up Grin’s latest effort last night to find more advertisements than even I can handle. I made a little game of jumping…

Left 4 Dead Meets Rock Band

YouTube user s1rPwnage87 has successfully created the Left 4 Dead survivors in Rock Band 2. The user very cleverly has them perform L7’s Pretend We’re Dead. I am ashamed that I don‘t have the crew created on my console. That will be remedied as soon as I get home from S-Mart….

RROD’d 360 Transformed into Arcade Stick

Are you tired of dealing with Microsoft’s amazingly oblivious “customer support” every time your console Red Rings or E74’s? How many times do you have to explain to Microsoft what a hardware failure is? Starting to think that you’ll never convince them that taking the hard drive out, or checking…

Condemned 2 for 19.99 USD

Don’t take this as a review of Condemned 2, because I am literally only three chapters in. I must say, that so far I am really enjoying it. The scares are quite cheap, but tell that to my failing heart. This was a game that I initially passed over when it…
