Wii3? Another GD Podcast.

The guys talk E3 and their reactions to such. Fun drinking game idea: Take a shot every time Dave says ‘amazing’. You’ll be shitfaced before you know it!

Reactions to Video Game News in GIF format: Nintendo Edition

Skyrim DLC, “Dawnguard”, Releasing This Summer

Bethesda announced Skyrim’s first DLC expansion today with Dawnguard.  More details are expected at E3, like perhaps any relation to the rumors of Snow Elf Princes and crossbows. Also, for those who love screaming at their TVs, the Kinect-features update for Skyrim is supposedly available today.  Honestly, I think I’d enjoy screaming shouts in the […]

This is joyous news!

Ripten posted some interesting information today about Skyrim and subsequent DLC. Enter the Snow Elves (currently the Falmer) and their Snow Elf Prince, who was felled by the Nords (a child, in fact) at the Battle of Moesring. Also surmised by Ripten is the addition of the spear and the crossbow, perfect for assassins and […]

Huzzah! The defeat of more bullshit video game legislation!

Sorry, Oklahoma.  Looks like you’re just going to have to tax liquor more. Wait…

Borderlands 2 coming in September

In news that makes me (and surely Wes, too) very happy, Borderlands 2 will be coming September 18. As you can see from the trailer, its graphical styling is still there, only better looking–like playing a cartoon. The best news: 4-player online co-op. Wes just peed himself somewhere…

…Wherein my childhood keeps coming back…

Saw this on Joystiq today:  WW(F) WrestleFest is making a comeback via Xbox Live (and those other ones, too). I, for one, am mostly pumped, much like the late Randy Savage was (only with less steroids in my case).  The one problem I have is the inclusion of current wrestlers, which really isn’t that big […]

Louisville Arcade Expo March 2-4

Gamers of Louisville and its surrounding areas will soon be treated to the second Louisville Arcade Expo. We were there last year enjoying room after room filled with retro gaming goodness, arcade cabinets, pinball machines, gaming tournaments, vendors, artists and more. The first expo, in our opinion was a huge success and we have been […]

Rock Band getting RickRoll’d on Valentine’s Day

Not that I mind the 80s flare being disseminated by Harmonix to the Rock Band DLC collection, I still find it hard to believe that Rick Atsley is getting the RB treatment when we, the people, are missing out on Led Zeppelin! http://www.rockband.com/blog/gold-star-my-heart-dlc Also up for Valentine’s Day: Every Rose Has Its Thorn – Poison […]

Remember all that ‘buying one console’ nonsense? Well…

Twitter feeds my addiction of knowing about something first, right or wrong.  You see, I’m a know-it-all who loves the sound of his voice far more than I like.  And when Twitter drops some knowledge bomb on me, I have to disseminate it further. Behold!  Via GizmoFusion.com, a report that Google is in the lab […]

Skylanders: Gotta Buy Them All Achievement Glitch

I have read on forums and experienced some issues myself in receiving the Skylanders’ achievement entitled: “Gotta Buy Them All”. There are several youtube clips showing some trickery for swapping your save files which I have not yet tried. I contacted Activision explaining the situation: I have maxed out the abilities on several Skylanders that […]

ApocalyPS3: The Second Coming!!

Didn’t Sony learn anything from fellow Japanese, corporate giant Toyota?  You can’t hide behind vague language or impose a media blackout when you have a potentially serious issue (like a sticking accelerator pedal or a massive leak of your subscription base’s personal information) because you are afraid of the PR hit you’ll take.  As Toyota […]

Battlestar! Now on your Xbox 360, PS3, and/or Wii!

Your console of choice just got a whole lot sweeter!  Now available on Netflix’ Instant Queue is the full series of the re-imagined SyFy original, Battlestar Galactica, possibly the greatest TV drama ever.  When my obsession first hit a year and a half ago, I would have killed another human being to have the entirety […]
