Wipeout HD impressions

Initial impressions, as expected, can be described thusly:

The hype is true, the screens weren’t lies. It is a stupidly, almost disgustingly well-presented game. I now See The Light on this 1080p/60FPS mantra. I don’t think it’s necessary for every game (or even close) but for racing games like this… it just presents a level of [...]

Wipeout draws near, I can feel it

Found some more rumours and tidbis of info via the GAF hivemind:

members of the press are getting code now (again)
zone mode is barely ‘nerfed’ as indicated previously; billboards don’t have the EQs but the track still does (go figure)
about 990 MB download size
“There’s a very distinct and long health warning [at] the beginning of the [...]

The Kid’s Got +5 Heart of Encouragement

I’ll be honest: I didn’t care for the Too Human demo. I wasn’t for or against it per se, but rather, just sort of bored by it. But only sort of. The game isn’t terrible, but it certainly isn’t great, and there’s too much great to choose from these days. Plus the removal of local [...]

Open Letter to Dylan Cuthbert

TO: [email protected]
FROM: [email protected]
SUBJECT: cores, soft and hard
Dear Dylan,
You are killing me slowly and ruining my relationship. Ok, maybe that’s a bit harsh. You are slightly maiming my psyche and irritating my fiancée.
The problem is your core. It is too hard. You take this core of hardness and apply it to whatever strange collection of superhip [...]

Oh Haze. We Hardly Knew Ye.

IGN delivers their patented finishing move:

(Image shamelessly scooped from Xater)
The writing is on the wall: this dog won’t hunt. It’s a shame, really. The blowback started way back last yeat when head Haze writer Rob Yescombe was widely misquoted in the entertainment press, describing Haze as aiming for a more mature audience, which of course [...]

BitCast #44

I’ve been rudely interjecting myself into the BBPS’s weekly podcast for several weeks now… I haven’t mentioned it here yet, since I was sure they’d kick me off at any moment, but it hasn’t happened (the drugs do work!), so it’s time to link it.
This week was part 1 of the Grand Theft Auto IV [...]

Still Homeless

1UP is reporting that the Sony Home project has been delayed again, fortheluvagod, until “Fall”:
“We understand that we are asking PS3 and prospective PS3 users to wait a bit longer, but we have come to the conclusion that we need more time to refine the service to ensure a more focused gaming entertainment experience than [...]

Everybody Hang On To Something

I’m upgrading the site to Wordpress 2.5 so things might be a little bumpy for the next while. Pray for me, pray for the immortal soul of my database, for if it doesn’t make it, I know not what I will do.

Just A Flesh Wound

Netflix: “We’re not going to carry HD DVD discs anymore…”
Best Buy: “HD DVD content will no longer receive marketing…”
Wal*Mart: “We no longer will be carrying HD DVD…”

HD DVD: “I’ll bite your legs off.”
Now the question is – will MS ship an external blu-ray drive for 360, thus completely validating Sony’s strategy once and for all; [...]

So That’s Two Dead Xbox 360s For Me So Far

And like a good little web denizen, the first thing I do is go bitch about it in my blog!
This refurbed 360 arrived less than a month ago. In that time I managed to play a handful of very good games on it. I made it through BioShock and Crackdown, and I had just purchased [...]
