E3 2008: Microsoft wares lack novelty with mainstream appeal

Read blog entryAt E3 2008, Microsoft unveiled a line-up of products designed to appeal to the more casual gaming audience that Nintendo currently dominates with the Wii. The miscalculation on the part of Microsoft is that they think they can appeal to the masses by providing something useful like Netflix connectivity and online chat parties or something that is supposed to be an improved experience like Lips, which is a refinement of the singing/rhythm game.

The top 10 GameCube games according to me

If there's one thing gamers love, it's top 10 lists. I started with the original Xbox, and now I'm moving on to the GameCube. Like Microsoft's black beast, the GameCube is well and truly "dead". So, having tried any and everything that caught my eye and with no new games coming down the pipe, this is my definitive list of personal picks.

Princess Debut hype

I don't usually do straight PR, but this game caught my eye for obvious reasons... It's not everyday you see a game featuring a female character trying to net a boyfriend through the art of ballroom seduction.

Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard impressions

I’m in the middle of Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard on the DS right now, and I’ve got to say that it’s one hell of a game.

Wii Fit training log – Day 4: Wii-covery

Read blog entry.On the second week after my injury, my back was about 80 percent recovered and it felt like a good time to do some light workouts. In addition to resuming my power walking, I thought the low-impact/resistance exercises in Wii Fit would be a good way to ease back into my weight training.

No wonder McDonald's is king

So is it true that most gamers only want better graphics and more-of-the-same gameplay? Many industry heads think so, and evidently there's a pretty good number of gamers out there who are pretty eager to agree with them.

Kids' games that DON'T suck

So a few days ago I posted a rant about the sorry state of kids’ games, and afterwards I was bound and determined to find something that my son and I could play together.

Rise from your grave... now get BACK IN!!

Microsoft's done it to me again. I got hit with the Red Rings of Death and went through the whole repair process, getting knocked out of action for about a month.

Wik: The obsession

Anyone that knows me knows that I rarely play a game twice. If it's got a story mode (and I love them that do) regardless of how much I enjoyed it, chances are that it’ll never enter my console again once the credits roll. A large part of the fun I get from games is the discovery of what's next, and once I already know, it just doesn't have the same thrill.

Wii Fit training log – Day 3: Finding balance

I apologize for the lack entries to this training log in the last couple of weeks. I had hurt my back while setting up a canopy for my son's birthday party. I was in a fair amount of pain and the range of movement in the lower half of my body was severely limited. Obviously, exercise of any kind wasn't an option.
