Sept 22nd - 28th

Loads of games coming out this week as we speed toward the end of the month. It looks like Freedom Fighters may be the surprise hit of the month if Gamespot's latest 9.3 review is anything to go by.

Stuck in a Loop

Today I am going to get Homeworld 2 in the mail, which makes me more excited than it probably has right to - the demo left me downright frothing in anticipation. Along with Homeworld 2 I am also getting Dark Forces 4: Jedi Knight 3: Jedi Outcast 2: Jedi Boogaloo which will hopefully be the new Thursday night favorite around here.
I'm pretty tired of retailers treating their customers as a burden instead of an asset.  You see it in just about every industry, a general sense that unless the customer conforms precisely to the EZ-Salez script, they should be treated with the exasperated disdain with which one would deal with a colicky child.  We're not just talking about customer service here, a phrase that's be
Various sites such as EuroGamer and Cube-Europe are reporting that Nintendo of Europe will lower the Gamecube price from €199 down to €99 ($100) next month. Also, Pikmin, Starfox Adventures and Luigi's Mansion are going to be available for €19.99 ($20). Mario Sunshine and Metroid Prime will join the Player's Choice ranks.There's no official confirmation of this yet.

Sony PSP Bits

The German news magazine Der Spiegel posted an interview with Sony's Phil Harrison. He's talking about PS2 online gaming and the appeal of EyeToy among other things, but also drops some more information on their upcoming PSP system. Asked about what they're going to do about the dominance of Nintendo's GBA he responds that they're going for a different target audience.
We completed the server move last night so everything should be running ship shape! If you're having any issues with the site drop me a line so I can annoy Pyro until he fixes it.In other news, Chrisg let us know that Deus Ex 2's release date has been pushed back to Q1 of 2004 according to Not a bad move considering the glut of releases hitting the shelves before Christmas.

Isabel Who?

Woah, sorry this is up so late. We were all telling hurricane war stories around the office and I totally forgot. Our house survived with minimal damage. There's some siding loose, and that's about it. We never even lost power, but I drew this comic extra early just in case. I hope any of you on the East Coast came through relatively unscathed.
There are, we're told by many an afterschool special, several different kinds of love.  From the days of toga wearing acients who used different words to define different kinds of love, we've bandied about the concept of love with delicate trepidation.  There was Eros, which is the love one feels reading the Victoria Secret catalog.  Philos, which is the love one feels for a friend who g
Another game franchise is going to make its way into the movie theatres. GamesMarkt notes that Konami has officially announced that a movie based on Silent Hill will be made. While the series is known for its scary and gory atmosphere, the license was not handed over to the infamous Boll KG (Alone in the Dark & House of the Dead movies) this time surprisingly enough.
Legally no less. Atari is offering the full version of Temple of Elemental Evil over Kazaa which includes six hours of play. If you decide to keep it you can pay $50 bucks to unlock the sucker. This is a great way to get the game for those of you outside of North America with fast connections or too lazy to hit the store.
