    First Look at Deca Sports 2

    Recently we were able to get a hands-on with Hudson Entertainment’s Deca Sports 2. Deca Sports was very popular with Wii gamers and so a sequel makes sense. Intent on making this game a move forward and not just a sequel, Hudson not only added more sports but created a team editor as well as online multiplayer. Let’s start with the new sports featured in Deca Sports 2. There is dodge ball, ice hockey, tennis, synchronized swimming, motorcycle road racing, speed skating, mogul skiing, darts petanque and kendo. Some of the sports are not as well known as others but that doesn’t make them any less fun. Three sports work with the new online multiplayer mode.

    Warhammer Online stars in Ace of Cakes 8/27

    We love game-themed cakes and who better to create one than the team at Ace of Cakes. Tomorrow night on the show, at 10pm, Warhammer Online will be the star of Ace of Cakes after Chef Duff creates a massive cake modeled after the Squig. Duff calls the Squig the best cake he’s made on the show. USA Today posted their interview with Chef Duff: “The best cake he has made on the show. “It’s coming up. We made a cake of a monster called Squig from a video game called Warhammer for a video-game convention. This thing was about the size of large sheepdog. It was gigantic. It was a humongous cake balanced on two legs.” The thing is HUGE and is a combination of amazing and totally disgusting. It should be fun watching the Ace of Cakes team work on creating the Squig.
