There are a lot of gamers out there that only want the latest and greatest first-person shooters or epic releases, but others love to look back fondly at the classics that got us to this point. For those, there is Mega Man 9.
Capcom has just announced the North American release dates for Mega Man 9 and regardless of your console preference, you should be covered within the next two weeks or so.
People interested in technology and home entertainment like to get their hands on the latest, greatest products. Before, it was all about having the top of the line DVD player, receiver and speaker system. And though those things still hold serious importance, there’s one product type that seems destined to swoop in on the home entertainment market. I’m talking about next-gen gaming consoles, the XBox 360 and PS3, in particular.
Last week Sony released the v2.42 firmware for the PS3. It was a minor update that “improves the playback quality of some Playstation 3 format software.” Unfortunately, while it has affected PS3 software, it hasn't been in a good way.
This just in, violent video games don't kill people, game consoles do. Alright, that's not entirely true, the game consoles won't kill you, but the hardware used still contains hazardous chemicals, despite gaming companies cleaning up their act.
There are some things that just make a person feel very patriotic. One of the big reasons why I love the US is because we don't get screwed on release dates like some countries. Sure, Japan got Super Smash Bros. Brawl a month before we did, big deal. That's nothing to the wait Europe has for most titles. If rumors are to be believed, some European rockers may have to wait until September before getting their Rock Band on.
I'm the proud owner of an Xbox 360, however, I wouldn't ever consider myself to be a fanboy. I also own a PS2 and a Gamecube which still see action. There are plenty of dedicated fanboys out there, and this shoe is for them.
Heelys has created a new shoe specifically for hardcore Xbox 360 gamers. It really looks like someone dropped a 360 controller onto the conveyor belt and some machine smashed it into the sole of the shoe.
If you're one of the millions of people left out in the cold (literally) trying to obtain a next-generation gaming console last week, and you don't know any friends who had better luck, then the United Kingdom has your back. While the Wii isn't launching over in England for another two weeks (followed by a four-month wait for the PlayStation 3 in March), the Science Museum in London is hosting its Game On exhibition, highlighting games from the PDP-10 era to today's ultra-modern technology. Over 120 games will be available for people to play, so if you're still hankering for that Virtua Fighter fight or to see how weird the original Street Fighter was, head on over, since the exhibit will be running until the end of February. And if you live in the UK, the exhibit ends right before the PS3 comes out. Try before you buy?
