Sorry no posts since Halloween. But we’re alive, and we’re at the close of the Thanksgiving weekend! So, Happy Post-Turkey Day!
I actually have been doing quite a bit of gaming over the weekend, and, thanks to Steam sales, I am a few games richer as well.
As you can tell by the pictures, I took a trip back in to Playstation Home. I haven’t really touched it in a long time, nor do I ever really feel the urge too, but I had yet to experience the features added during patch 3.1… aaaand it finally let me connect without timing out… so ya.
Once my avatar materialized in to the mall, I noticed the giant turkey monolith and abundance of virtual turkey’s gobbling about. So… of course! There had to be a turkey-themed mini-game! Much like the rest of the mini-games on Home, it wasn’t that interesting: chase a turkey, chase another turkey, chase a somewhat faster turkey. Not that cool, but I knew I had to win me a hideously deformed turkey suit… which hardly anyone was wearing, probably because it is just that ugly.
But the best part about this weekend, other than stuffing my face: Steam. They’ve been having a 5 day sale for select games (different crop each day), and I have to say it’s a nice way to pad your library. Of course, Steam has sales a lot anyway, but seeing a chunk-o-game for 50-75% off is awesome.

Whoo hoo! The PS3′s getting Netflix!
In the past, I was kind of envious of the 360 (not having one of my own) for allowing users to insta-watch Netflix movies, but now it looks like come November the PS3 will be fitted with a similar launch application off of the XMB. This comes a year after the partnership between Microsoft and Netflix made the feature available on the 360. Read more »
The playable PSP demo for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker has been officially released to the public by Konami as of yesterday. Of course, it must be noted that the demo had been leaked on to and available elsewhere on the interwebs since September 24th after it debuted at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
Somehow that fact had eluded me up until yesterday’s announcement, at which I joyously pulled out my PSP and hopped over to the Official Peace Walker Site to download the demo in all it’s glory… Read more »
Looks like the land of Azeroth is primed to get a facelift, albeit a destructive one courtesy a whirling Maelstrom and bursting molten center. That’s right. After much World of Warcraft: Cataclysm speculation, as well as some leaked information, Blizzard went official with World of Warcraft: Cataclysm at this year’s Blizzcon letting loose a booming announcement trailer. This will be the third expansion following previously released Wrath of the Lich King and The Burning Crusade. Read more »
This was a pretty big year for E3, and there is certainly a lot to respond to. However, I’m going to start out by granting my impressions on one of my favorite developers, and one that kinda stole the show for me personally.
As a major follower and fan of the Metal Gear franchise and Hideo Kojima, I must admit I was lending a keen eye as to what would be announced from Kojima Productions this E3. In traditional Kojima style, there was a somewhat quirky teaser build up prior to E3’s launch, which left many watching, waiting, counting down, and attempting to unscramble flashing images, numbers, and letters.
