Mal*Wart Canada Offering 80GB PS3 for $549.83

Why 83 cents? Some kind of hyper-researched consumer psychology at work, no doubt. (Adjusts tinfoil)
DailyTech has a scan of the flyer. The good news – a cheaper 80GB PS3; the bad news – you have to actually walk into a Wal Mart to pick one up. Make sure you have the de-lousing kit handy [...]

Halogasm, Dual Shock the Third, UnStrangled Little Girls, etc.

Here’s just a whole bunch of stuff that I’m catching up on…
Amongst the still-glowing embers of confetti and flaming cat helmets resulting from the Halo 3 launch, a clutch of aftershocks emerges: the game runs at “640p”! That’s, like, 80p less! What devilry is this? Nothing, says Bungie, it is just you whiny bitches who [...]

Notable Releases: September 24-30

Halo 3 (Xbox 360)
The mother of all (dodgy) game marketing campaigns comes to a head this week with the monstrous, unholy launch of Halo 3. This will obviously give the 360 a huge boost in North America; the game had 1.5+ million pre-orders alone. What else can I say about it? It’s Halo Fucking Three. [...]

Gone Fishing

I’m out of town for a few days. Actually I’m travelling to Toronto, where a huge portion of my so-called readership resides anyhow, so I’ll be going door-to-door and delivering your videogame foofaraw in person.

Most Disturbing Box Art Ever

After completing the illustration for this Zelda-derived minor character spinoff game, the artist replaced the nylon stocking on his head and resumed stroking his limbless Bratz doll with a horsehair brush, while muttering it puts the lotion on its skin, or it gets the hose.
