So far my favorite PS4 game involves blowing flower petals through fields.
Fuck that Killzone shit. I’m making the world BEAUTIFUL.
Doomsday pits BLU against RED, with only one team getting the honor of transporting a suitcase nuke full of recalled Mann Co. Australium to American monkeynaut Poopy Joe’s rocket, so he can blast off and hunt down Soviet space chimp Vladimir Bananas. It’s the same spirit of competitive enterprise that stalled the moon landing by three years when Buzz Aldrin suplexed Neil Armstrong into a pile of folding chairs at Astromania ‘69! Both teams will attempt to get the necessary fuel up a preposterously slow-moving elevator and into Poopy Joe’s Australium-powered rocket to the stars.
This is Day 1 of a 3 day celebration update for Meet the Pyro. You can read their blog entry here.
Aww hell yeah!
GUYS! GUYS! GUYS!
Ubisoft was supposed to make a huge announcement regarding Assassin’s Creed 3 on Monday. Looks like it leaked a little early. (That’s what she said.)
Anyway, check out that sweet Native American themed character. Oh and here is the link for IGN’s article.
NECA’s 1:1 Portal replica gun went on pre-order in Japan recently and now it’s available for pre-order in the US. The gun is $139.99, which honestly isn’t bad for a full sized replica of this quality. I might seriously consider getting one. If I do, you’ll see it first on IHC. This thing is seriously fucking awesome.
According to ABC Today, EA will be launching a few ME3 games into space.
They are planned to come back to Earth sometime before March 6th, ME3’s release date. They can be tracked on the Mass Effect website, and anyone who finds one will be able to play the game before they even hit retailers.
How cool is this?
They offered you their city…and you refused it. And what did you do instead? What I’ve come to expect of you. You saved them. You gave them the one thing that was stolen from them: A chance. A chance to learn, to find love, to live. And in the end, what was your reward? You never said it, but I think I know:
Let your neighbours know how much you love gaming with this awesome 8-Bit Wreath!
The 10.5″ x 13″ wreath is made of durable EVA foam and decorated with a pixelated game controller, red gem, cherries, a 1-up mushroom wearing a Santa hat, a Galaga ship, Tetris block, little blue Dragon Quest slime, and…wait for it…gold coins containing yellow LEDs so your wreath will sparkle in the night.
I must have this.
This past Sunday, Nintendo released Super Mario 3D Land, the latest game in the long running franchise. Gamers everywhere rejoiced when it was announced that the famed Tanooki suit would make a comeback. Personally, I was giddy with excitement when I found out the short, mustachioed, Italian plumber was getting one of my favorite childhood power-ups. (Sad, right?)
Well now PETA had to ruin all the fun. Someone from the organization decided, “Hey! Mario can’t go around showing kids its okay to wear fur! Let’s show them how wrong it is by launching our own (crappy) video game!” Yep. PETA made a flash game to raise awareness about the animal cruelty behind a Mario power-up. Oh and the little fox in the video game can die by getting crushed. Way to go, guys.
We have all heard the argument before - video games (especially violent video games) are making a bad impression on children and teenagers. But Mario? Give me a break. I grew up on Mario. I was 4 when my Dad brought home the NES. Super Mario Bros. was the first video game I played. I’ve never wanted to emulate the character’s actions in real life. No jumping down sewer pipes or kicking turtles for me. Although, I did use to step on mushrooms in my backyard. And it would be pretty bitchin’ to throw fireballs. But I highly doubt that by throwing in a fox suit power-up, kids around the world are going to start skinning dogs or wearing fur. And it’s not even like Mario kills little baby foxes in the game! The suit pops out of a friggin’ “?” box!!!
I hate animal abuse as much as the next guy. But PETA needs to calm the “F” down. Worry about what happens in the real world PETA. Not the Mushroom Kingdom.
edit: Maybe I was wrong about kids wearing fur. I wonder if this dude can fly…
