Marilyn Monroe makes it to the PS2

Trawling the Japanese game sites I came across this little gem which will probably never make it to our shores. Certain victory pachinko Vol.3 CR Monroe. Yes a pachinko simulator for your Ps2 set for release in February 2006. And in case your younger than I am (which is most likely) and have no idea who Marilyn Monroe is the following gives you a quick taster. Marilyn

360 Ps3 Vampire's Rain First Look

Well not much to see yet, following a prolonged search on the net I've only managed to find a handful of screenshots and those it appears scanned from a Japanese gaming magazine. But the reviews are thick and fast, not surprising as the game is due for release in Japan in Q1 of 2006. Game feature? rain? yes it appears vampires become weaker when exposed to rain (like furbies I suppose) Well no need to hold you bore you any further, here are the best previews available. Heck I'll even throw in the magscan how's that? .............jee some people are never happy.

xbox360 Bullet Witch first look

Set for release in Japan in Spring/Summer 2006 (depending on what preview you read) and hopefully the rest of us due course (if not it's off to the import shop). Bullet witch is about the desperate fight between man, who is on the verge of extinction and demons, with you playing as a witch. Small bit more on IGN
Some iffy enough screenshots on the Magic box
Stay tuned!

Xbox 360 DOA4 a perfect 100% ? review, trailer and screenshots

So far to date the only decent review I've managed to track down (ok i'm old, i'm lazy, bite me!) is the following from IGN . Who also manage to have 191 screenshots and 10 videos including the official trailer (yep some day when I get older and start my own website.......never mind)

Amid rumour that some companies(?) released their reviews before they could possibly have had a review copy (link) Kotaku points to an article on widespread corruption in the games industry (link).

Best review to date? was probably from a gamer who commented on metacritic

"this game was the only reason i got an xbox360 it was only because of this game and im so happy cause it was worth it but this game is still the coolest game ever."

Nuff said!

Stuckgamer Video Walkthroughs for Top Games

It's sites like Stuckgamer that make me feel old and redundant (.......well redundant then). Stuckgamer is a website offering (wait for it!)

Video walkthroughs of your favourite games.

Yes I kid you not, so put the kettle on, check your broadband download limits. Some Vw's you have to download others you can just sit back and watch the streaming loveliness of it all. My favourite? God of War. MAJOR Spoiler alert, oops nearly forgot the link

No sooner had my computer chips cooled after reminding you of how good a game XenosagaI was, then this preview of Japanese only release Xenosaga III (for the moment). Preview from the incredibly gifted peoples at 1up.

As number one had over 80 hrs of gameplay let's hope the new version is a return to former glory.

ATI manager says xbox360 will outshine PS3

Richard Huddy's (European Developers Relations Manager) unexpurgated interview with Edge and why "Xbox 360 technology is likely to outperform PlayStation 3 technology by a pretty healthy margin in the long run."
Report from xbox365

And yet Hideo Kojima (the creator of the popular Metal Gear Solid series) says there aren't any real differences between PS3, PC and Xbox 360. Again from xbox365

My money's still on the PS3 (yep cause I'm still sour about the 360 shortage)

Game sales down Xbox360 getting the blame

The Wall Street Journal (yes we do get around) has reported that the Xbox360 may be to blame for poor game sales in November, so low in fact that EA and Activision are warning that they may miss forecasts for the fourth quarter and 2006. While I must say I can't help smiling, I would humbly suggest that the figures reflect the high retail price of games and very few decent releases rather than the xbox360 shortage. Report CNN Money

And while we're at it, would the Microsoft genius who feels it necessary to advertise the xbox360 when there are none in stores please take a holiday. Rubbing our face in it ain't the way to go. Advertise when you have them to sell not otherwise.
