Boom Blox “Blockbuster” Trailer

Old Grandma Hardcore Got Her Copy of GTAIV

Old Grandma Hardcore Got Her Copy of GTAIV

Of course Old Grandma Hardcore bought Grand Theft Auto IV. This is a game that I think fits her perfectly; violent, loud, and full of profanity. I can’t wait to here her review of the game. I hope she likes it, because I sure as hell do. The new braking system is still a bit tough though. There, my only gripe.

Jack Thompson Wants GTAIV Too

Jack Thompson with GTAIV

It seems that Jack Thompson really likes video games, he just pretends he doesn’t to get publicity. I think he targets companies who create violent video games because he knows that they make the big bucks and it’s his chance to try to rake some of that in.

Anyway, GamePolitics.com received this photo from Jack Thompson himself with the subject line of “evidence.” I’m betting that the game in his hands were purchased by an underage kid. I hope that’s really not the case though. So much of this crap could be taken away if store employees were strict in not selling games to minors.

GTAIV Has Freezing Issues

It seems that a few Playstation 3 owners have been reporting problems of the game repeatedly freezing on them. Some have even tried reinstalling the game several times with no luck although this fix has been working for some. According to many reports, it seems to be happening mainly on the 60GB models. So if you have this problem, your best option right now is to delete all data related to the game, including game saves, and try reinstalling. Luckily I haven’t had any problems yet. I have a 60GB PS3 too.

  • The Mother Hips “Time Sick Son of a Grizzly Bear”

If you plan on purchasing Grand Theft Auto IV or already have on the Xbox 360, you’ll be pleased to know that the game comes with a full free month of the Xbox Live service. Looks like Microsoft is giving all kinds of incentives to buy their version of the game.

Balance Board Not Only for WiiFit

It kind of sucks when you buy a game such as the WiiFit, and the peripheral that comes with the game works only with that one game. In the case of the WiiFit balance board though, this isn’t the case. Via a teaser trailer for Rayman Raving Rabbids, it looks like the game will offer some kind of use of the device. Check out the video.
