Dead Rising 2 Out for PC??!!?!?!?!

One reason why one should own an Xbox 360 if you already have a PC was the game Dead Rising.  Granted, it wasn't really a good reason, but it was at least a reason.  There may be some other reasons, but none of them come to mind especially when you have to PAY for online services.  Well, maybe Halo if you're into that sort of thing, but there are plenty of other FPS's to wet that appetite. 

Just recently I saw a game for sale on Steam.  You guessed it; Dead Rising 2.  I'm not too sure if this is old news but I always assumed that this game would be an Xbox 360 exclusive..... or maybe I didn't really care too much since I wasn't going to spend $300 on an Xbox 360 for it to potentially RRoD on me with its 50% fail rate.  I could do a whole blog on Xbox 360 vs. PC, but hey, this for Dead Rising 2.

Anyway, now the glorious PC gamer race has even more ammunition to fuel their zealous pride of being the true and all powerful gamers.  Laugh at those console peasants, laugh!!

Big Review Incoming... Dragon Age Origins and Awakening

Hello fellow readers.  Sorry for the long delay of posts, but it took me quite some time to beat Dragon Age Origins and its expansion, Awakening.   This was mainly because I heard that this game was amazing. However, this was ultimately a let down.  This is partially due to my initially high expectation of the game and the fact that I just "finished" playing probably the best game to come out within the last 4 years.

This weeks Extra Credit: Freedom of Speech

This was probably they most interesting, relevant and important video I've seen in this video series about games. It's mainly about the case 'Schwarzenegger v. EMA' which was picked up by the Supreme Court and will hear this case on November 2, 2010.  What does this mean for you?  Well, if the supreme court rules in favor of Schwarzenegger, games will essentially be labeled as NOT as an art form and will be regulated differently from virtually every other entertainment medium today.  Thus, any M rated games will be much harder to produce and would essentially kill the game industry today.
