Just Cause Game Trailer

Lots of action games have tried to base themselves purely around the concept of lots of ludicrous stunts, but few have taken it to the silly, over-the-top levels that Eidos and developer Avalanche Studios' Just Cause is aiming for. In the game, you play a top-secret operative named Rico Rodriguez. This game looks cool, I'm Hispanic (dad is Puerto Rican and mom is from Ecuador), and it's feels really good to here my family's language coming from the main character in a video game, sweet.

Miami Vice - The Game - Trailer

I noticed that the Miami Vice movie did well at the box office this weekend, so I thought I'd take a look to see if there was new footage for the Miami Vice game. All I found was a trailer, which looks good, but actual gameplay would be better.

According to Next-Gen.Biz: The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) shindig has been a staple of game industry life since the mid-1990s. However, we understand the larger exhibitors have jointly decided that the costs of the event do not justify the returns, generally measured in media exposure.

Publishers believe the multi-million dollar budgets would be better spent on more company-focused events that bring attention to their own product lines rather than the industry as a whole.

Well placed sources say the news that larger exhibitors were pulling out had prompted urgent meetings among publishing executives. They decided that, without the support of the larger software publishers and hardware manufacturers, there would be no point in continuing. See what happens when you mess with Wonder Woman, I'm referring to a story Kotaku did about a very pretty woman who was tossed out for not following the E3 dress code, look at the picture, I think she looked great.

Video review - Super Monkey Ball Adventures

Super Monkey Ball Adventure is due out this week so I was looking for some new footage, and I found this on YouTube from Gameworks. It's a spanish review, which is cool I speak spanish, but it was a bit of a challenge trying to follow along with this video, still it was fun.

(This 'glitch' has happened to me 6 times when I played at Fenway park after the update; and YES I checked to see if any cheats were active.. they aren't.)". Well maybe it's not a glitch it could be a "feature".

How to Protect Your Eyes While Gaming

I found a story on Digg, about Internet war game addict in Beijing who became blind due to a detachment of the retina after obsessive Internet playing, more on this story here. I don't game much on the web I do most of my gaming on consoles, but I recalled seeing another story that listed ways to avoid things like eye and muscle stain while playing on consoles. One of the tips was to take a break every 40 minutes to an hour, get up from the computer or gaming console and stretch your limbs, walk around a bit and look at objects at a great distance. More on this second article can be found here. Well I hope you find something useful in this post, now I think I'll go do some safe gaming, you may be wondering why the picture on the right has two women in bunny ears, well they are gaming and my concern is for all gamers, even the ones wearing bunny ears.

Weird video game - Toilet Kids, Turbografx 16

Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom

Konami's Death, Jr. comes to the DS. This was announced at a pre-E3 event in Los Angeles, but this is my first time seeing it, I thought Death, Jr. for the PSP looked great and it's good to see it available for the DS. The game will be completely different than the Death,Jr. sequel that was announced for the PlayStation Portable at the same time, although both games will boast a second playable character in the form of DJ's friend Pandora. More detail and images can be found at GameSpot.

SCEA's Dille Explains Studio Cutback on UMD Movies

GameDaily BIZ: SCEA's Dille Explains Studio Cutback on UMD Movies

In the above article it suggests a reason why watching movies via memory stick rather than UMD's is preferred, because when you use a UMD the spinning of the disk uses up the battery life. People are putting movies on a stick to save battery life. This makes me wonder that perhaps one day games will also be on sticks rather than on the UMD.

Windows Is Ready to Tout PC’s as Gaming Devices

Windows Is Ready to Tout PC’s as Gaming Devices - New York Times
This was a pretty good article, I do agree that the PC is a very good way to get the best gaming experience possible. If you have a powerful PC, if you don't (like me), then you could upgrade your system which I'm not confident enough to do. It would seem to be easy enough, I know that I need a more powerful processor, but if I make a mistake then instead of a good PC I'll have no PC, which would make me sad.

Trauma Center Double Stylus Tech

This is one of those "why did'nt I think of that" ideas. Someone uses a double stylus technique to play Trauma Center Under The Knife. Awesome, I tried to play this on my DS but it was hard, so I put it aside and dicided to wait till I got the less bulky DS-lite. I think instead of waiting I'll try this instead.

First look: Team Fortress 2

This looks like a preview for a new animated action movie, which if it were I'd see it.

GamePro TV

This was cool, to some this is sort of a second look, but this is the first I've heard of this. It showed some good gameplay of video games that I've heard for, but had not a chance to play yet.

Nintendo DS Lite X1.7 Speed Mod (Overclocking)

Well I'm not sure I'll be trying this mode, but suddenly I feel like playing Super Mario 64 for the DS. I played the Nentendo 64 game which I completed, but could not find the final star. I wanted that star because I heard that something cool happens when you get all stars.

DS Lite Is Crackin' Up!

MAXCONSOLE - Nintendo DS - Confirmed: DS Lite Is Crackin' Up!

The above link reminds me of all the problems with dead pixels on the original DS. I was not to concerned about it and a bought a DS, well when I fired it up I found a dead pixel. Now it seems the new DS lite may have some issues with cracking, I think it may be a good idea to wait before I upgrade from my DS to a lite.

Included in the bundle pack will be Project Gotham Racing 3, according to Gamespot, for more info click here.

The Future of PC Gaming?

This is a concept of what good be a simpler to modify PC. I found this Dell XCS on one of my favorite tech blogs, Gizmodo. The idea of making a PC easier to tinker with sounds like a good one, because one of the reasons I've stayed away from PC games is that in order for the games to run smoothly I'd have to open up my PC case and upgrade some of the parts. The fact that if I made a mistake could permanently damage my PC, keeps me from getting under the hood. So a concept like the Dell XCS, which seems to have an error proof modification system, looks very cool. For more info click here.

I was checking out the gaming section of my favorite tech news site, Digg, and I saw that someone had submitted a story about the XBOX 360.

If you would like more info on this rumor check out this link.
