    Review: Brutal Legend

    ESRB: M for Mature System: PS3, Xbox 360 Genre: Action-Adventure, RTS Number of Players: One to Four Developer: Electronic Arts Release Date: Oct 13, 2009 BUY I suppose that when you look so forward to something for so long, you’re bound to be disappointed with the final product. And while that’s no way to start a review for a game that I genuinely like, it is disappointing. Hear me out… To give some perspective, I hold Tim Schafer’s Psychonauts in the highest regard. It is gently resting on a pillow, covered in a glass case, atop a pedestal, guarded by 20 El Odios in my mind. To say that I consider it the greatest game possible would be an understatement, and would of course doom any sophomore effort from Tim’s Double Fine. How do you beat the unbeatable? Having looked forward to this game with a child-like enthusiasm since it

    Tune In To Terebi – Call Center no Koibito

    The world of TV shopping has exploded since the world-wide recession. More and more people are looking for deals on the every day products they use, and sometimes products don’t always work as advertised. When Tokura (Koizumi Kotaro) makes the mistake of mocking the shopping channel’s #1 hostess (Aisu, as in Antarctic Ice, due to her cold heart), he finds himself sent to the call center. Out here in the middle of nowhere are the people who man the phone lines for ordering and customer complaints. However, this group of specialists does more than just listen to complaints, they go out of their way to make sure the customer is completely satisfied. Even if that means upsetting the main office in Tokyo doing so. Each episode had one product that is focused on, whether it be a flashlight, video camera, workout DVD or discounted food, as well as a customer

    Happy Birthday Playstation 2!

    I can’t believe it’s been nine years since I stood outside in the cold to be one of the first people to get a Playstation 2. On October 26th, 2000, millions of people just like me were doing the same thing. And some of us ended up having to wait a couple extra days to get one as there were some shipping delays with certain retailers. By the end of the current fiscal year there will be nearly 10,000 titles available for the PS2. That is one massive library! Some really great titles have been released on the system: Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Daxter, SOCOM: Navy Seals, Final Fantasy X, XI and XII, and of course Gran Turismo 2 and 3. So boot up those PS2s and show them some birthday love!
