The Skies Above to return.

If there isn't Norwegian cock rock on this album I am going to be SO disappointed.

Which brings me back to an ever cycling question of mine.

The Advantage. Drop dead boring due to precision, or zoned out boring due to cover choices?

Rock Band confirmed for Brawl.

Plus, continued support through '09.

Give me your honest opinion. Do you foresee these musical simulators continuing on year after year, or are they going to burn out within a holiday season or two?

A year or two? I'm not sure, there's lots of fun and challenging music to fantasize about playing... But... There is only so much. Eventually it, and the interest will be stretched to the point where it's no longer satisfying.

... Then again, sports games have turned into RPGs, going so far as to include the most useless of stats (charisma, Pfft!), so... who knows?

I figure that they'll eventually just cook up a quick and dirty (official) way for people to make and import songs into the game.

Once someone tosses in some billboard toppers & brings it to console, it's :gameover:

As it is now, not so much.

They were originally going to have a wedding band, but they called them off because nobody wants to hear that one again.  Also, rumor has it that said band had such a strange obsequious manner that some guys in EA wanted them killed.  So hey, good news for all parties involved.

It turns out that they're making Mass Effect for the PC after all.  So, how long after the initial release will it take for hackers to figure out how to replace Liara's normal character model with the naked one from the sex scene?  Days, or merely hours?

It was only a question of when. So, six months. Slower than the KotOR 1 & 2 four month and two month waits, but far sooner than the Jade Empire twenty-two month wait.

And no, Target will not be removing copies due to Fox News. :slow:

At this point, I'm just relieved it's being released this year.

I was expecting a vague November release date at this point, so early September is a pleasant suprise.

It's still gonna be delayed again  :MENDOZAAAAA:

Raptor Safari was cool.   How could anything possibly top the sheer exhilaration of running down a velociraptor with a jeep and a spike bumper?

Gentlemen, I give you Flashbang's next project:

The King is dead. Long live the King!

Which is still a bit disingenuous. The King is still very much alive, and while the red prince may be dead, the blue prince now has to compete with the queen for the throne.

Funny, wasn't the death knell for Blu-Ray tolled when the porn industry backed HD DVD?

The anime & porn industries have been hammered in the past years by INNNTTTEEERRRNNNEET. Their average budgets have been cut in half, and are becoming more and more niche in domestic releases. Expect less Jenna Jameson and Steamboy, and more Bang Bros and Kanon.

In other news, Red Alert 3 announced for realz this time. You know, I think EA might even do it right, too. C&C3 might not have been spectacular, but it certainly was a step above Tiberian Sun. And that atrocity was committed while Westwood was still living and breathing.

The Red Alert series has always been more fun and compelling than the Tiberium series, anyhow.

tl;dr yuri is master

EDIT: Verbose-ified.
