Gears of War 2... No Demo Foreseen

Sad day, Gears of War creators Epic, has reported that there is no planned demo for the next iteration in the series. This follows the same pattern as the first game, and it is said that Epic thinks that creating a demo in a 2 year turnaround period just isn't feasible.

I have say that there's a murmur going around that companies are thinking less and less about doing actual demos for their larger games, and instead they are turning to trailers to do their showing off. I kind of see why they're doing this, they're doing it because that means that they have more time to polish the game, and less on worrying about making a stable version for a demo.

I also have to say that I can't wait to see what Gears of War 2 will be like, I was dying to destroy wave after wave of locust the first time around, and I know that its probably going to be more of the same, and with a little bit of luck even better.

The other thing that I liked was the storyline, and I'm very interested in seeing where they will take this one.


Apple's intent for Games

Well as some of you might know Apple is pushing for games and they are going to be doing a firmware upgrade around the time when some of the big name publishers, who are being very hush hush right now, will be releasing games for the system. The date that they are talking about is June 2008.

Here's a picture of what will be added, now just to give you a heads up this is the i-phone look, but the i-touch will be similar with the exception of the phone( and its features ) and the camera.



*insert cheesy music from the first movie here*

So it is official the next Mortal Kombat is going to showcase not only the regulars of the series, but it will also feature some of the legends of the DC comics.

I really don't know what to make of this move. I think personally that Mortal Kombat needed to spice things up a bit it was getting to be just the same old song and dance every go around, but the introduction of the DC franchise, well I'm not sure what to make of it. I think it could be cool if all the fighters are as good as I hope they can be, but on the same hand if they screw up with certain characters this game will make all those hardcore fans out there cry. Then again it is those fans that are sometimes able to see past what others can't. Take me for example, I just can't get enough of the .hack games, and yet it really is just the same damn thing with an additional price tag on it so you can advance in your adventures a bit more.

We'll see what happens with this attempt.


Decision on the reviews

I've been putting a bit of thought into this and I want the public's opinion. I have 13 more games from next gen consoles, and they are the following, I want to know if there are any that you would like to see or that you think might just be better to leave alone:

Saints Row
Enchanted Arms
Burnout Revenge
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree
Splinter Cell: Double Agent
PGR(Project Gotham Racing) 3
Ninety Nine Nights
Hitman: Blood Money

Today is another crazy day for me so I'm going to let the public help get some stuff up there today.


Something a little new with the site

Alright now as you can tell we've taken that category thing off the side of the site because it was confusing the best of us, if you're looking for comics or reviews the quick way to do it is just press the buttons on the top of the bar.

Now some Comic news, sadly I don't know when the next one is coming I'm going to try to sit down and knock one out in the near future, I've got the story for the next one I just need to draw out the panels.

I'm also suffering a bit from fatigue as of late, I've been trying to get into another MMO called EVE Online. I've blown up my ship about 20 times already, and I'm now severely hurting for cash. I'll write a review about the game probably in the near future.

Speaking of reviews you've probably noticed that I'm not on my blistering pace that I've been setting since we moved over to this site, well I'd love to keep up that pace but there's a couple problems. First I'm going to burn myself out like crazy (and I think that might be the same with trying to produce so many comics). Second off I'm sort of running out of games, unemployment doesn't really allow for shopping sprees for games that I'm dying to get my hands on.

You might have, or maybe not, noticed that if you go into some of the reviews there's now a link somewhere the top of the review with the game's name. We thought it would help people navigate to a place where they could pick up the game, if they liked what they read. So all links lead to

Well I'm going to try to eat something and get myself ready for another day, but hopefully in the near future I'll have some stuff to put up be it comics or reviews. Also I'm sure that Dev has a couple of games that he's dying to review, so be on the look out for those too.
