It’s been a while since my last update, which is kind of similar to my free time for gaming. While often limited, my random gaming sessions have been all over the place. The theme of this post has to be ‘backlog’ – as in I could not purchase a game for the next couple of [...]

I have a smorgasbord of games in my current rotation, which is really unusually because I almost always sick to 2-3 games at the most. In no particular order: Joe Danger – What a fun little game. It is going to be really hard for me to get 100% (from a Trophy consideration) on this [...]

Christmas Gaming Treats

No comments

As a kid I always looked forward to getting new videogames in December (birthday and Christmas). I always held out hope that I was going to get a few new games, and they just had to be better than decent because I knew that my gaming library was not going to increase during the upcoming [...]

Gaming News and Notes

Over the last three weeks, starting right before the Thanksgiving break, I have been on a torrid (for me) gaming rampage. I think I have logged more hours on my PS3 (and even a few on the oft forgotten PSP – Ghost of Sparta) than I did in total January through October. I have to [...]

Black Friday Gaming

I am not a huge shopper, except for the stay at home and click on Amazon kind of shopping. This year (at least so far today) I did not see a whole lot of deals that I just had to get. The tally today is FIFA 11 (DS) and Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii) for [...]

Racing nirvana?  Probably not based on past Gran Turismo titles, however I hope it is a damn good driving experience. It has been a while since I have actually been around the house on a major “release” day.  Thanks to having several days off, I should get in plenty of time with the game. Upon [...]

Ending Credits

Yesterday I threw up an article congratulating myself for completing Afrika, in the process achieving my first Platinum trophy. This is a great segue into a recent IGN article titled “Why Don’t We Finish More Video Games?” It is a damn good question, and the article brings out a few interesting points that I shall [...]

I know that this is somewhat older news, but I figured I would touch on GT5 for a minute after reading the Nürburgring news at the Official-ish PS Blog. Nürburgring is definitely a favorite among GT fans, and I’m excited to share with you that Gran Turismo 5 will feature its three courses: the Grand [...]

Speaking of not having enough time to play games, I just pre-ordered FFXIII from amazon, which has a nice $10 off a future video game purchase promotion. Get a $10 Video Games Credit Order Final Fantasy XIII and get $10 off a future video game purchase. The promotional code will be placed directly into your [...]

The battle between these two titles is heating up with plenty of trash talking between fans in each camp. Can’t we just all get along? I thought this was an interesting article at Destructoid that compared the demo setups on display at the Tokyo Game Show.

Gran Turismo PSP. Failure?

No comments

I never thought I would see the day when sub spectacular ratings would come in for a Gran Turismo title. The PSP release has a current metacritic score of 78%, which is shockingly bad when you up the game up to the legacy of its bigger brother PlayStation console releases. What is going to happen [...]

Oh boy. This is not so good. Everyone was expecting the portable version of GT to be a PSPGo system seller. Not so much according to CVG, scoring the game a 6.7 out of 10. Ouch. It’s easily the most realistic handling we’ve seen in a PSP driving game, and all this is done at [...]

It looks like Sony is going to offer some sort of pre-order deal for folks that order/reserve Gran Turismo (PSP). Pre-order Gran Turismo, and you’ll get a voucher that will add one of the top cars to your in-game collection of cars in an exclusive color. This means that on day one, you’ll be able [...]

As I read more and more info about the upcoming Gran Turismo for the PSP, I run across lots of info on the graphics, some on the physics, but nothing about the actual racing. This latest preview article from PSXExtreme is more of the same. Moving on, upon approaching a PSP devkit running the game, [...]

This one from PlayStation Life Style is a silly little head scratcher. A CNET poll to vote for Forza or GT went horrible wrong. Ballet box stuffing. For shame! We live in a very competitive world, and this is apparent in the video game industry where publishers and developers are constantly trying to get a [...]
