Wii Motion Plus

Ahh Nintendo you and your LOVE of peripheral’s. I’m going to remain skeptical until I hear otherwise. Considering the laser pointer quality of the Wiimote I guess anything can be a upgrade but still. 40$ for me and no new game? Sure it’s the same price as another controller BUT, I already have a controller. Anyways, it’s out today June 8th.

GBU for Burnout Paradise (PS3)

This game came out for the PS3 and Xbox360 in Jan. of 08, and has just been released on PC this past Feb. It’s been constantly updated with new modes and vehicles, some free, some for a price, the support from the developer has been great.

The Good – Intense arcade style racing gameplay. Graphics have a fast, silky smooth framerate. Car wrecks seem to be randomly generated and are some of the most spectacular of any game.The sense of speed is exhilarating, the satisfaction from wrecking other cars is second to none. Open world design keeps objectives fresh, almost every intersection is a race, time lap, stunt run, or wrecking competition(road rage) that can start any time you pull up to one. You can stop an objective any time just by pulling over.

The Bad – Uneven challenge in some of the modes for some people perhaps, example, I just can’t seem to get very good at the stunt runs, yet some are experts. I’m pretty good at road rage though. Huge soundtrack is hit or miss. While the challenges show up on the mini map, there’s no waypoint marker that you can set, so if you want a specific challenge, you look at the map and try to remember where it is, or keep pulling up the map, checking till you get there. Due to the open world design, a regular race can easily be lost by taking a wrong turn which can be frustrating sometimes.

The Ugly – When you play online, you can keep a camera attached to the system(xbox vision or playstation eye), the system snaps a photo when you lose a race so your opponent can see your loser face :-p

Warhammer Land of Dead

Mythic has released some more info on the new RVR zone, Land of the Dead. And a new grab bag Q+A whatever that means. I never played Warhammer, nor do I exactly intend to after my interesting match up with another Fantasy Based MMO, but this game does look good. There seems to be a lot of love invested in the game, if it somehow holds up through it’s well reported bugs maybe? I remember many forum posters saying “WOW” was Waiting on Warhammer and yet one of many reasons why you should never believe what you read on the forums as what the “company” is thinking too. In my humble opinion Blizzard just looks at the forums to see the Bugs people find in game under the guise that they “listen” to the fans.
