Unfortunately the majority of the episodes take place while I’m at work. Last week when I tried to get in on a Saturday showcase my internet went down for the two hours where the shows were airing. But finally this week I got in on two 1 vs 100 Extended Play sessions.

A few new Mass Effect 2 tidbits

A few weeks ago we got our first official piece of media for the highly awaited Mass Effect 2 in the form of a prelude trailer to E3. The trailer itself showed a decent amount of footage and was quite informative for the fans out there that have been aching for new info. While E3 is just two weeks away ME fans have some new info to tide them over until the eventual media blowout for the game.

The latest Bayonetta trailer redefines the phrase over-the-top

[Edit] We were contacted by Media Maverick and asked to remove the video and images for now. The video was leaked and unfinished. We will be updating you later with official released footage when it becomes available.

After being announced and later discussed in a variety of interviews and magazine stories Sega and Rebellion are finally showing every the goods for the upcoming Alien vs. Predator game slated to hit the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC early next year.

The latest Kojima teaser continues to get people excited

The madness around the mysterious Kojima project countdown is continuing with the previous countdown being merely a countdown for another countdown.

At the time many simply brushed the rumor aside as it seemed odd that EA would have Criterion work on an installment of the series especially since Burnout Paradise was just released at the time.
