Say you are one of my Twitter followers (link's on my page!) or friends with me on Facebook. Do you really care what trophy I just unlocked while playing Uncharted 2? Do you want to see an announcement every time I blow somebody off the road in Blur?
but it's so much fun!
I know, I know. I promise this the last time I'll blog about Alan Wake (at least until the second DLC comes out). But after all of the drama about why I didn't buy it, and then the announcement that I did buy it, how could I not tell you what I actually thought of it?
Music has always been a vital part of the gaming experience, from the "bleeps" and "bloops" of the old arcade games to the midi soundtracks of the original console generations, to the sweeping orchestral scores of today. Much of it is iconic, at least to the point where you recognize the game as soon as you hear it (sometimes I still can't get the most addicting song from Dr. Mario out of my head).
Wasn't sure what to blog about today. So, when in doubt, blog about somebody else's blog!
Wow, lots of controversial comments and vitriol in response to Game Informer's post about President Obama making a cameo in Madden 11.
No, I'm not talking about watching Roseann Barr (or does she still just go by "Roseann?") doing the Limbo.
Intended as a companion piece to my "Why I didn't buy Alan Wake" post (recently featured on this week's (last week's?) Blog Herding (thanks, Annette!)), here's where I admit that I finally broke down and bought this game.
It's a seemingly never-ending war, where both sides are so entrenched that diplomacy is useless. Neither side will yield an inch. The carnage on the battlefield is almost unbelievable, even if you are a participant in this war.
(Yes, I know there is a reviews section on this site, but nobody ever seems to look at reviews, so I'm posting it here)
As Game Informer (and many other outlets) recently reported, it looks like the second season of Xbox Live's "1 vs 100" will be its last. I'm really sorry to see it go, actually, though as Dan Americh reported, it was a *lot* of work to pull off. I didn't play it every week, though I tried to get in there a lot. I also enjoyed playing the "bonus" rounds that were done during the week, just to get players points and to also help decide who would be in the Mob or "The One" chair when the show was actually on.
