Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Two Free Games On Gog.com!

I already talked about Good Old Games a few months back (see here). It is a very noble endeavor by Polish CDProjekt to propose old games for $5-10 that are entirely compatible with XP and Vista and DRM-free.

That being said they just released two old school point ‘n’ click for download, entirely for free!
These two games are Beneath a Steel Sky and the infamous Lure of the Temptress, both developed by Revolution Software.

In order to enjoy these classics just head over to Good Old Games (see the link on my sidebar) and download the games.

BioShock 2 Dated

Last week Take Two announced that the game would be released on PS3, 360 and PC although no mention was made of a simultaneous release.
Now they have announced that the game will come out between August and October 2009.

Good Old Games Opens!!

You have to look it up.
GOG is a downloading platform created by Polish company CDProjekt which features somewhat older games for $5.99 and $9.99.
It is worth noting that all games are compatible with Windows XP and Vista and that they are DRM-free.
The list isn’t huge so far but they have several great and lengthy games. Among these are Fallout 1 and 2, Kingpin, Freespace 1 and 2, Redneck Rampage and more.
Be sure to check it out.

Guitar Hero Drum Issues

Guitar Hero World Tour shipped Sunday and it seems early acquirers are facing some problems with the hardware. According to numerous reports the drums’ biggest problem is that they are overly sensitive so that when you hit one drum it will activate the one next to it.
Also some say you need to hit some cymbal a certain way or they won’t respond.
Activision Blizzard addressed the issue saying there is a fix and it will guide consumers with the issue through it…
How about replacing a faulty product??

Baja Cover Battle

THQ filed a lawsuit against Activison Blizzard stating that their cover for SCORE International Baja 1000 was too similar THQ’s title (Baja: Edge of Control).
I have to say that when you look at the covers it’s a bit too close for comfort.

Sequels, Sequels

Ok let’s make it quick.
Saints Row 3, LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2, Army of Two 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
There, see, quick.
