Obama Speaks to Gamers

With the elections less than three weeks away (thank God!) Barack Obama is branching out and putting ads in no more than EA 18 games!
Gamers first spotted the ads in Burnout Paradise but it has since been confirmed that they also bought media space in Madden 09, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, Skate and more.
EA has stated that they do not endorse either candidates and that its ad firm, Massive, even contacted the McCain campaign which passed on the deal.

Toshinden Is Back!

One the PSX first title and one of the first 3D fighting game, Battle Arena Toshinden slipped quietly into oblivion and has not been heard since… until this week.
Famitsu announced in their latest issue that the game will come back on the Wii. Not many details have been released aside from the magazine scans but the chara design looks very different.
We’ll wait eagerly for more info.

Last year’s most immersive FPS was a huge succes and it was no stretch of the imagination to think that 2K Games was working on a sequel. Well players who bought the PS3 version of the game and finished it unlocked a nice little extra, namely the first teaser for BioShock 2: Sea of Dreams.
There is debate on the web as to whether the game is a prequel or a sequel but I’m sure the developers will give us an answer soon enough.

GTA San Andreas and Portal Hitting XBL!
