king zarkon gets his ass handed to him! (again)
San Diego Comic-Con is just a couple days away, and we’re expecting to get a peek at THQ’s Voltron: Defender of the Universe. Based on the 80’s anime series, Voltron is a combination of five robot lions controlled by members of the Voltron Force who join into this massive kick-ass robot to defend the universe from King Zarkon of Planet Doom. Nowadays this would be considered extremely gay,...
Activision gets a little butt-hurt
Last week, Activision filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum in an attempt to seize the domain, ModernWarfare3.com. An unidentified person had registered the domain with GoDaddy.com back in March 2009. Clearly dissatisfied since the MW2 release, said individual began posting negative comments about the franchise and recently started promoting EA’s Battlefield 3. Activision must...
sexy, steamy, puzzles
The North American demo for Catherine drops on XBLA and the PlayStation Store a little later today! If its anything like the Japanese demo (and I’m assuming it is) it should run about 20 minutes long, depending on how well you do at solving the puzzles. If you know nothing about the game, then it is definately something you should have your eye on, especially since it releases...
The Black Ops: Limited Edition some of us have...
Activision has confirmed that they will be releasing a limited edition of Black Ops which will include a redemption code for the first downloadable content, “First Strike” (which cost $15 alone!). This limited edition will cost $59.99 and will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360. I’m still not going to invest in it, but this is kinda nice for those that haven’t bought...
Move like an idiot, kill like a Spartan
Guess what’s gonna have Kinect support? If you said “Halo!”, you’d be right. In an interview with Gamespot, Phil Spencer noted that Halo: Anniversary will have Kinect support. Sadly, thats all we know about it. No word was said pertaining to how the game would use Kinect, just that it would use it. So don’t get your hopes up and Recon Armor polished off just yet. ...
A dollar's worth of difficulty (and then some...)
For some, it would seem that the days of challenging 2D platformers is bygone, but luckily, Magiko Gaming has you covered! Today Magiko is releasing the follow-up to Platformance: Castle Pain, and its called Platformance: Temple Death. The game will only set you back a buck, and will offer quite a bit of challenge, while boasting more checkpoints than its previous installment (which should ease...
Suda 51 and Shinji Mikami have new voices!
Usually dev diaries are fairly boring…not this one, though! In their most recent dev diary for Shadows of the Damned (due out June 24th), SUDA and Shinji talk alittle about the gameplay of Shadows of the Damned, but the best reason to watch this is totally for the rediculous new voices that they’re rockin’ throughout. Just watch it for yourself! Ps: might not be SFW due to...
Pre-Order Black Ops 'Annihilation' from Gamestop
But why should you when it can be downloaded straight to your console? I don’t know. Better yet, are they going to run out of download codes for this content? Probablyy not. So, uhhh … yeah, I really don’t know why you’d need to pre-order Annihilation, but the option is out there, I guess. And you can trade in stuff towards the purchase. Wooooo. -___- - TCH<3
a "notch" off the old block

Redbox game rentals are go!
As of tomorrow, Redbox, that large red machine at your local grocery store or mall, will begin to host game rentals. If I recall correctly, game rentals will cost $2 a day, and just like movie rentals, they will auto-renew on your credit card if you don’t bring them back. At launch only a few titles will be available and here’s a list of em’: Brink [PS3, 360, Wii] LA Noire...
Skarlet is a real glitch!
Skarlet, once a character only playable by way of glitch, will soon be a downloadable character for Mortal Kombat 9. She will cost $4.99 (or 400 MS points), and will be available next week. -Le3F
Black Ops: Annihilation Map Pack
Photo courtesy of: Kotaku.com On June 28th, Treyarch will release its third map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops. Although no price has been announced, it will most likely cost $15, the same as the previous map packs. Annihilation will include four maps: Hangar 18, Drive-In, Silo, and Hazard, as well as an “all-new Zombies experience, Shangri-La”. This map is set to incorporate...
