    Playing in Wintergrasp post patch 3.1

    When Wrath of the Lich King was released, I was apprehensive about Wintergrasp. As someone who’s not too into PvP it seemed like another one of those things that I would never really get into playing. I put the blame solely on Warsong Gulch for my dislike of PvP as the Alliance seem to never be able to pull it together and win a match. However once I reached 80 and set foot into Wintergrasp for the first time after reading up on it I was blown away. Any bad feelings towards PvP were erased as I joined in on the assault of the massive fortress. There had to have been at least 2-3 raid groups going that were full, along with a few other not entirely full groups. It was exhilarating to help destroy the walls and eventually win Wintergrasp, then chase down the remaining Horde out of the

    Super Yum Yum 3

    Platform: iPhone/ iPod Touch Number of Players: 1 Publisher: AirPlay www.airplayuk.com BUY A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to write a First Impression of Super Yum Yum 3 for the iPhone/ iPod Touch. This is the full review. This third installment of the series starting Leon the Chameleon. As in the first two episodes, Leon has had his children taken by his arch nemesis, Ms. Tum Tum and its up to him to find them while eating fruit to navigate through different worlds. This hasn’t changed. Its highly reminiscent of a platformer with puzzles leading to the completion of each level. Super Yum Yum 3 features 4 worlds with 36 levels of fruit eating fun. Graphics: Bright and colorful cartoon images are cute. Sound: The music really adds to the fun of the game and the introduction music has a very different feel than the actual in

    Tretton upset about E3 leaks

    Sony President, Jack Tretton is a little peeved about the Game Industry’s lack of ability to keep a secret. Days before E3, a leak about the PSP Go came out through an early leak of a Qore episode. Qore is now retaping an episode to talk more in-depth about the PSP Go. On stage at E3, Jack joked about the worst kept secret of E3. But it definitely seems to have struck a nerve with him. In an interview with CNBC Jack explained his frustrations. “People don’t respect confidentiality in this industry,” says Jack Tretton, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America. “It’s tough enough to keep a secret within your own company, much less when you speak to third parties.” He added: “This is an industry that has trouble focusing on today,” he says “We want to constantly talk about tomorrow.… You have to prepare for people

EA’s Euro VP Patrick Soderlund told VideoGamer at E3 that “we have a small team on it and I’m excited about what we do.” Patrick didn’t add any details about the sequel because it’s in such an early stage of development saying, “you will see another Mirror’s Edge for sure.

    Go Home Ball

    Platform: PC Number of Players: 1 Publisher: King.com Official Website BUY A puzzling physics game in which you have to guide the ball home. Addicting and challenging, Go Home Ball can consume hours trying to beat all of the levels. Graphics:  The background images are all part of the stage. They look really nice and they flow together. The stars, which you have to collect to complete the level, stand out and it’s hard NOT to see them. Sound: The music is really calm and kind of jazzy. It is a good accompaniment for this game. Of course, you can mute it and the sound effects from the in-game menu. Controls:  A and D or the Left and Right arrow keys moves the logs. Left-click places the logs. A stick only lasts 2 seconds and you can only have one on screen at a time. There are other tools you can

    PSN Cards Now Available in Canada!

    It’s been about a year since the PSN (Playstation Network) cards became available in the US. In that time, I have waited ever so impatiently for them to figure out how to bring the cards to Canada. I don’t like using my credit card to purchase points or Xbox Live time, and I am a huge fan of the pre-paid card. Well, a little birdy had informed me the PSN cards were finally on their way. And today while I was visiting at EB Games, they arrived! PSN cards are available in either $20 or $50 increments (same as our US neighbours). The first game I bought today was Q-Bert! Holding off now for Fat Princess because that game looks awesome! You can find me on the PSN: Yuki-Hime
