Oct 20th - 26th

Certis is out helping clients or beating up orphans or something, so I am here to help him out by doing the Week Ahead.  

It seems to be a pretty hoppin week this week, with the new Castlevania, the new Rogue Squadron, the new Warlords game and the XBox premiere of Rare.  You remember Rare right?  They did, umm, you know, the game with guns several decades ago.  But it was on the N64!  This week they have a new title out there called "Grabbed by the Ghoulies".  Anyways, let's get on with it.

Will Biggs ever break his habit of wearing makeup? Will he at least procure some matching lipstick and eyeliner? What shoes go with an orange flightsuit? Find out this and more in the latest installment of the Rouge Leader series - Star Wars: Rebel Leader.

Why is the Castlevania love only on the PS2?  Any rumors if it will be ported to the GC or XBox?

If only I had taken that course on pyrokenisis .... *sigh*

Not that I know of, I've always heard of it as a PS2 exclusive title.

Arghh! Blurry Low Res Textures..

The googles do nothing!

No SSX3 mention?  Should be out, or at least shipped, today.

Somehow I missed that the first time, thanks!

Dammit Pyro, a pox on you for not mentioning Railroad Tycoon 3.  It's a good thing I can edit this thing!

You know what's really funny? I intentionally took it out because I thought "Railroad Tycoon? Who gives a sh*t?"

Now that I see it, I think "Railroad Tycoon? Who gives a sh*t?"

You guys, and I mean this in the most loving way possible, are complete idiots.
