The Beast trailer is up...

That's for me and the three other people waiting for the "When It's Done" release date.  I will say that it has that "This looks awesome, but damn, I'm probably going to be disappointed, aren't I?" vibe about it.  I hate that vibe and I hope it is proven wrong.

Can't tell anything from a cinematic.  I was waiting for the "This was all recorded using the in game engine" tag, but nope, just a cinematic.

The PS4 gets a free game! But not for most of us.

The PS4 has been pushed back to a 2014 launch date in Japan, but as compensation, they get a free game. The downside? The free game is Knack. Sorry about that, Japan.

So Atlus just sent out an Email about the new Tex Murphy game they kickstarted a while back, and they listed Kevin Murphy as a cast member! I backed it, but had no idea he was going to be involved. I wonder if the Rifftrax crew are all fans of old adventure games, or if adventure game creators are fans of them...

I've taken vacation to extend my next weekend (my "weekend" being Tuesdays and Wednesdays) so I can play more GTA5.  :D

Wow, I think I remember hearing about this, but it just hit me with a huge wave of nostalga.  I remember loving Under a Killing Moon and Pandora Directive.  Nothing like choppy video, 2-D looking 3-D environments, and having to swap between 4 to 8 discs to play.

You know there's a couple of trailers out for the new Tex Murphy game?

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/HBbzzUBiUEg" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/HBbzzUBiUEg</a>

Looks as awesomely cheesy as ever.


Edit - And holy shit! Richard Norton is in the movie? He had that bad-ass stick fight with Jackie Chan in City Hunter. 

A sham that Kevin is only playing a voice.  Would've loved to have seen him in some of that terrible make-up.

Exciting news!

Nintendo officially announced that one of the fighters in the next Smash Bros will be.... Princess Peach. I'm sure everyone is quite surprised by that news.

It doesn't matter. Wii Fit Trainer and Mega Mang are going to be my main squeezes, plus whichever of my characters are being held over from Brawl.

In other news, who the hell thought it wouldn't be broken as fuck to give Garchomp a megaevolution? Also, Froakie's second form does not disappoint, and Fennekin's is sure to please furries everywhere!

Oh, not the best preview (all the excitement of turning things on!), but the article makes it sound cool.

Ah, but now that the Dragon type has a weakness to the new fairy type, Garchomp won't be quite as invulnerable as he used to be. I'll just sick my Wigglytuff on him. It'll be fine. :^)

This entire post would not seem out of place on a fetish forum.
