Reggie Fils-Amie's Reaction to Natal

It appears that good ol' Reggie has grown a mustache, and is discussing the Project Natal with Nintendo of Germany's board of directors, as seen in this video:

Ok, fine, that's just Hitler. Yes, it appears that Natal has its own video in the the Hitler Downfall Video YouTube meme. Der F├╝hrer doesn't seem very happy.

It also appears that Left 4 Dead 2 has a Hitler video of its own as well

Pillowy Mounds of Mashed Potatoes

First Review

So I'm working on my first game review, and I may make them into vids if I have enough time.

A little hint for you

one more hint: the game's title starts with a letter

Tetris Turns 25 Years Old

Tetris, that legendary game that makes you question your sanity, (what with all those falling blocks you see in your sleep) turns 25 years old today.

Here's a good video on the history of Tetris, along with this one which I couldn't figure out how to embed.

Natal: The Most Talked-About Thing at E3 2009

Project Natal - that little doohickey above. Project Natal is an add-on for the Xbox 360, similar to the PlayStation 2's EyeToy. Microsoft is promising that it will be much more than the EyeToy. The trailer for it features use in it for a variety of games (Fighting, Sports, and some weird Godzilla game) along with Xbox Live support and the ability to scan objects for use in-game.

Now, the aim of the Natal is obviously after Casual Gamers and fans are split on it. Some fear that it will suffer the same fate as the EyeToy, while others feel that it will become a Wii-killer.

Regardless of how fans feel, the Natal has become the most discussed announcement at E3 this year, with the PSP Go and the two new Super Mario Bros titles announced coming in behind.

We'll all just have to wait until it comes out to really be able to tell for sure.

Also, Milo is freakin' creapy

I just love that scream

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Another... "interesting" game from Nintendo is New Super Mario Bros Wii. Most gamers have played a Mario Bros side-scroller, but not one like this.

This one's most notable feature is the ability to play with up to 3 other friends offline. It seems like a good idea, but I can imagine it being abused quickly.

Welcome to Super Mario Assholes.

While one can try to work together to beat the game in the fastest time possible, people who have played it said that it's more fun to try to hoard all the items, jump on people, and throw them into pits rather than actually help other players. If you die, you get encased in a bubble, which the other players can save you (if they want to). Overall, it seems like a good idea, definitely better than last year.

Wii Music? Seriously? What where they smoking?

Wario Ware DIY

Nintendo recently announced a new title in the Wario Ware series - Wario Ware DIY for the DS. One of the more notable features in it is that players can create their own custom microgames. This opens up a whole bunch of possiblilities and makes the player feel like they're a game designer.

The game itself (like a lot of games out there) is already released in Japan and is being localized for a North American release. Neadless to say, some crafty (amoung other things) Japanese gamers out there have already made some "interesting" (by which I mean: the kind of interesting you'd sheild the eyes of small children from) microgames, including one involving fondling up Yoko from Gurren Lagann.

Phill's Video of the Day

He is Billy Mays Guy, and this is his new weapon - Kaboom!


Gentlemen and Hand Grenades - a blog that covers Video Games, Computers, and occasionally Anime.

The whole idea behind this was that me and my friends should do something productive with all those hours of playing video games. Plus, we've all wanted to be game reviewers.

Hope you all enjoy!
