Come Back In Two Weeks!

January 23, 2010

Unfortunately it’s the time of the year when I have to sit exams. This means that I’ve got to get study for all my subjects which leaves me little time for the blog. The exam period is over in two weeks so I’ll hopefully be up and running by then. See ya’ then

MGS: Peace Walker Bundle Revealed

January 21, 2010

Famitsu have revealed pictures of a PSP bundle for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. This bundle, like the game (Well, in Japan) will be released on the 18th of March. It will cost ¥26,980 (US$296) and it has currently only been announced for Japan; it is very doubtful that it will be released anywhere else. This is a very limited bundle with only 1,974 units being produced, it’s a play on the game being set in 1974.

iSamJackson Review

January 19, 2010

Developer: Heatwave Interactive
Platform:  iPod Touch (Version Played), iPhone
Genre:  Soundboard
Players: 1
Release Date: 29/12/09
Price: £1.79

Of all the people a soundboard could be made for there is one who stands heads and shoulders above them all. That person is Samuel L. Jackson; the most badass mother fucker on the planet. iSamJackson is the Samuel L Jackson soundboard. It comes in two versions clean and explicit; yes, I obviously went for explicit. Some people may be weary of paying £1.79 for a soundboard but this is worth every penny.

Now the main function of iSamJackson is to be a soundboard. At the press of a button you can make Samuel L. Jackson unleash God like sounds consisting of one-liners, insults and witty remarks. Of course, with over 150 different lines, fans of Sam himself (Which should consist of everyone on the planet) will be amused for quite a while. All of the lines are original recordings so unfortunately I’m not able to get any of my favourite lines but hearing things like “That’s what she said” more than makes up for it.

iPod Touch Reviews On Their Way

January 19, 2010

You may know that I got an iPod Touch for Christmas. Since then I’ve played about with it, had fun and enjoyed the product loads. I understand that it’s mainly for music and that what I mainly use it for but I’ve been very impressed by the app store. There are really fun games available on there and I think they are good enough to review. However I will be using a rating system of five stars instead of the normal system for iPod Touch games.

January 19, 2010

The 10th annual Game Developer’s Choice Award are coming up soon and the nominees are below/after the jump. These awards are picked by developers of games rather than just gamers themselves. I bolded the games that I think should win, it’s not my predicition but my preference.

Uncharted 2 has the most nominees with a total of seven and the only ones it didn’t get were the ones were it doesn’t apply. Both, Flower and Assassin’s Creed II share a high amount of nominees too though. Read the rest of this entry ?
