Amazon’s “Deal of the Day” today is Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Nintendo Wii for only $25.99. The rest of the deals today also seem to be Nintendo Wii related. So if you own the console, watch the Goldbox Deals page throughout the day and see if they got something you’ve been wanting, but were too cheap to buy.
The update starts with some game demos for Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds and Top Spin 3. Both boring sports to watch but fun to play, right? There’s also a new character for PAIN, a World of Warcraft song for Guitar Hero III, and the full “Doolittle” album from the Pixies and 3 songs from Weezer for Rock Band. There are also a whole bunch of game videos, a few blu-ray trailers and two PS3 themes.
For the PSP, you can buy Medievil Resurrection for $16.99, download a Medievil Resurrection interview trailer, and a Medievil wallpaper. Not a whole lot, but still good, since Medievil is a pretty fun game. You can visit the Playstation Blog for more information.
I just recently started playing tennis, and I actually find it to be a lot of fun. I still don’t really know the rules though, so I’m just running around like a fool while I’m trying to hit the ball anywhere on the other side of the net. I guess this Top Spin 3 demo came at the perfect time. I’ll need to play it so I can learn the rules of the game, then maybe I can put up a fighting chance against the 10 year olds that go to the school where I play. Download the demo right now from the Xbox Live Marketplace.
After all of that “Hot Coffee” mess that Take Two went through for hiding those sexually explicit scenes in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, it turns out most people really didn’t care that much after all. After the lawyer, Seth Lesser, worked out a settlement of $5 to those offended or $35 if you still had the receipt, only 2,676 people participated in the class action lawsuit, resulting in basically a dud of a case. Way to go scum (Seth) of the earth, at least you still get paid, right? Just not as much.
This shit is bananas! Too much diarrhea, perforated mustaches, broken hips, and homoeroticism. Watch the video and learn more about Metal Gear Solid 4.
Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, and Dan Akroyd will all appear in the upcoming Ghostbusters videogame, but who’ll play Loius Tully, the nerdy, nervous wanna-be Ghostbuster. It certainly won’t be Rick Moranis.
According to Ben Borth, the games producer at Sierra, “He made so much money off of Honey I Shrunk the Kids that he retired. He just doesn’t want to work anymore.” Well, that just plain sucks doesn’t it? Oh well.
Another screenshot has surfaced from the long-awaited game, Duke Nukem Forever. This little tiny photo popped up on the 3D Realms website as a part of a “help wanted” posting for new developers. I sure wish there was more info about this game already, but I suppose this is just going to have to do for now.
Don’t forget to pick up the latest Xbox Live Arcade releases today. Both Happy Tree Friends False Alarm and Ticket to Ride are 800 Microsoft points.
I just picked up the latest release “Last 2 Walk” from the rap group Three Six Mafia yesterday and noticed that there’s a song titled Playstation, so of course I switched right to it. During the chorus line they yell out “Play with your Playstation 3, Don’t play with me boy”. That’s pretty much the only mention of Sony’s console though.
It’s cool that the Playstation 3 is getting some love. It’s just too bad it’s in such a cheesy way. On a side note, after listening to the album, I’d have to recommend AGAINST the purchase of it. There’s just no more creativity left in those guys. If you want to hear the song, with explicit lyrics, click here.
