Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
Is it just me, or is Rock Band going to be an epic failure? I only ask because the hype on this game is titanic (today, I read an article about the possibility of RB being a 360 exclusive that ended with the claim that even if RB were on all platforms, it would still sell as many copies on 360 as Halo 3), but I can't see any of the people I know shelling out a few hundred bucks for what is essentially a plastic band.
"The biggest [rumor] is that Team Ninja apparently have an exclusive new Dead or Alive game in the works for the Sony console [PS3]."
All right! DOA4 remix! Or maybe, if we're lucky, DOA Xtreme Volleyball 2.5!!
Team Ninja is a good group of game designers. Their two real talents are (i) announcing with absolute certainty that their games are the best ever created, and (ii) milking their franchises, especially for a small firm that can't churn out games too quickly (seriously, if they hadn't wasted years on Ninja Gaiden "directors cuts" and Xtreem CG Tittyfest side-games, we could've had Ninja Gaiden 2 already, or at least Ninja Gaiden DS)

Guhh...I was so psyched about the Wii six months ago, but consider me officially on the hater bandwagon.
"Thor, whose mighty hammer unleashed thunderclaps. However, you have probably never heard of Baldur.
"[Why not go with] some of the cooler gods?" jokes Dyack when we ask him why Silicon Knights chose Baldur as the protagonist of its epic story. "You know, I think that's a really good question and the answer to that comes out in the story. Right now, it might seem like a bad choice, but I feel pretty confident that by the time the story comes full circle, people will think it was absolutely the best choice."
That leaves a lot to the imagination and Dyack is even less forthcoming about the nitty-gritty details of Too Human's storyline."

PS3 launch news has been, for the most part, lukewarm to dire. Even if everything had gone smoothly, you'd still be stuck playing Untold Legends and Genji and brazen Geometry Wars rip-off Blast Factor.
Of course I've been chainsawing bitches in Gears of War, but Viva Pinata totally blindsided me. It's Rare, shitty since the turn of the century, doing Pokemon--who didn't this would be pants? Plus, how refreshing is it on a system where I haven't played a game that didn't involve a manly man beating and killing lots of monsters/terrorists since I made a female Nord character in Oblivion?
This is a one-two holiday punch that probably won't be beat.
I mean, even before they were the huge, scummy corporation they are today, their Genesis carts had those weird yellow things on the side.
