The special edition Resident Evil Xbox 360s have been spotted at a few stores. Don’t rush out just yet to grab a red 360, because each box is marked with a big sticker that reads “Do not sell before 3.13.09“. The chances of someone getting one this early are slim-to-none. Patience.

Review — Too Human [Re-post]

1 03 2009

I’ve been following this game for the past year, and I have sort of a mixed bag of nuts as far as opinions on the game. Of course this is a demo, but with the game being deemed “finished”, I don’t think hardly anything is going to change on the retail disc.

Too Human was originally in development for the PlayStation as a 4-disc action-adventure game. The game was shown at E3 1999, but shortly before its “completion” Nintendo announced an exclusive partnership with Silicon Knights, and the game was rebuilt for the GameCube in 2000. The game was delayed many times, and the partnership between the two companies was ended. Not too much was known about the game until May of 2005, in which Silicon Knights announced a partnership with Microsoft to produce a Too Human trilogy exclusively for the Xbox 360. The creators announced the game as a launch title for the 360, but it was delayed just before launch. The game has been delayed many times since then, but the game is finally here, and the game is officially completed. Promises of a demo were made in 2006 when the game was delayed numerous times.

Finally, the demo has arrived. I don’t have the full game, but this review will give you a general idea of how the game works and it’s pros and cons. Read the rest of this entry »

1 03 2009

I first heard about this game about a year ago when IGN.com first did a video about the Euphoria,  Digital Molecular Matter (DMM), and Havok engines. I’ve been fascinated because this is the kind of thing that hardcore gamers dream of. With technology like this coming to video games, things will only continue to get better, and more realistic.

This would be the game that showcases the new technology, and just the promotional trailers looked awesome.

I’ve always been a big Star Wars fan, having seen all 3 of the newer ones in theaters multiple times, and owning all of them on DVD. The video games usually aren’t that great with the exception of a few. Read the rest of this entry »
