IGN Update (360, Blog, Wii)

IGN has posted the following:

08:05 AM - April 4, 2007. Posted by Steve_OS.
Forza Motorsport 2 Demo Confirmed (360)

Eurogamer has the scoop.
"Microsoft has confirmed reports that a Forza Motorsport 2 demo will appear on Xbox Live Marketplace fairly soon. "The rumours this week of a downloadable demo are true and the details on timing will be confirmed in the coming weeks," the publisher said in a statement."


Forza Motorsport 2 Car List Update (360)

Boomtown has posted an updated Forza Motorsport 2 car list.
"Microsoft has released the selection of Aftermarket Tuner Car Classics featured in Forza Motorsport 2. Another exciting week in the build up to the release of Forza Motorosport 2. Not only has Microsoft confirmed that a playable demo of the racer will be coming to Xbox Live soon, but it's also listed the Aftermarket Tuner Car Classics that appear in the game."


Pocket Pool Preview (PSP)

Yeah, I said it...PSX Extreme has posted their Pocket Pool preview. That just doesn't sound right, does it?
"First off, let’s just clarify once again: the game does not have the Girls Gone Wild license, but then again, we were never sure what that license would've offered in the first place. As it is, you’re simply supposed to rack up – get it? – as many points as you can, and your unlockable prizes should appeal to all red-blooded males over the age of 17 (we say 17 to be legally correct; the game is rated “M,” after all). If anybody has populated a pool hall in the past, they probably know that it doesn’t exactly draw the highest class of people. That may sound insulting to the sport, but we can’t help it if it’s also true. And besides, that’s exactly the kind of appeal the developers are banking on with Pocket Pool, and provided the gameplay isn’t too atrocious, they should hit their mark."


More Mario Strikers Info (Wii)

N-Europe has some more information on Mario Strikers.
"The Wii-mote brings a dynamic new element to the series, encouraging the player to make instinctive physical movements to achieve the desired effect within the game. Basic movement and strikes are executed using the analogue stick and buttons on the Wii Remote and nunchuk. Flicking the Wii-mote will cause the character to check their opponent, hopefully stealing the ball in the process. Players can also use the revolutionary controller to perform cat-like saves, defending their goal from Megastrikes by grabbing the balls clean out of the air."


Sensi Soccer – One Of The Greatest Games Ever Made? (360)

Spong has posted an article entitled, Sensi Soccer – One Of The Greatest Games Ever Made?
"So we immediately picked up the phone for a quick chinwag with Codemasters Online Gaming bossman, David Solari, who informed us that, “Yep, it’s going to be the first, official online multiplayer version of Sensi for home console, which we’re all quite excited about,” he told us."


Other Stuff...

Well, we lost our game last night and unfortunately, I didn't get to play much at all. I'm not exactly sure why, but oh well. We have guys out there that can't even run up and down the court 3 times in a row, but yet they stay in the game. Makes no sense, but what can ya do. I just wait for my name to be called...patiently...are you kidding me? Put me in already...Bah...When I came in, I shut down their leading scorer, as soon as they take me out, he starts lighting it up again. Enough ranting, hopefully a few of the guys come up with an illness of some sort next week.

So, after a brief workout, shower and getting my daughter to bed, I decided to unwrap Guitar Hero II for the 360. I thought I'd play a few songs and hit the sack. I was playing on "Easy" BTW, this one song was kicking my ***. Next thing you know it's 2:00 in the morning, WHAT!?!?!?! I go to bed and we had some crazy thunderstorms last night and I could barely sleep a wink. I wake up this morning and the clock is flashing, telling me the electric went out and I'M LATE FOR WORK! Yeah me!

WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 Screenshots (PS3, 360)

Playsyde and Xboxyde have both posted some WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 screenshots.
"THQ today announced that WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 will be released on six different platforms this fall, including the PS3, X360 and PS2. They did of course release a bunch of images, that you can see inside."


WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 Wii Demonstration

QJ has posted a video clip showing off a demonstration from WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008.
"Anyway, the video we have here shows some folks from Yukes who demonstrating the proper way to play this game. From the get-go, the video is hilarious. It starts with these two guys who are trying to act like Triple H and John Cena, who are both from the WWE. Later on, the highlights of the video include the D-generation X taunt (performed by the guy with DX on his shirt) and Triple H climbing a corner of the ring and then proceeding to giving Cena a beating."


Mario Strikers Charged Details (Wii)

N-Europe has posted some details about the upcoming Mario Strikers Charged.
"There will be three types of matches: friendship, “regular”, and area specific matches. Area specific matches relate to the areas of the world, not the areas in the game. There will be a sort of “soccer season” sort of game, in which you earn points for matches you win. You have the chance to win achievements on this board, and your Mii will be shown through these boards to other online players."


Mario Strikers Charged Coming in May? (Wii)

Eurogamer has the scoop.
"The Wii version of Mario Strikers is due out on 25th May, Nintendo said today, and will offer online multiplayer via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection."


Other Stuff...

Not the most exciting NCAA championship game last night huh? It seemed the Buckeyes could never get over the hump, as soon as they made a small run, the Gators buried a three ball. Back to back for the Gators and everybody's favorite player Noah. I wonder if I'm somehow related...

Gonna try and pick up Guitar Hero II today, wish me luck. We also have a 35 and over league basketball game today, against a pretty solid team, from what I hear.

What's up with you?

Project Gotham Racing 4 Screenshots (360)

MyGen has posted some screenshots of Project Gotham Racing 4.
"Here are what seem to be the first Project Gotham Racing 4 images to ever be seen. These scans have been taken from a foreign Xbox mag and are legit. As can be see, the weather effects Bizarre promised are ever so present. This title looks to be a must buy."


FlatOut Ultimate Carnage Screenshots (360)

Gameinfowire has posted some screenshots of FlatOut Ultimate Carnage.
"Developed by Bugbear Entertainment, FlatOut Ultimate Carnage is rebuilt from the ground up and specifically developed to take advantage of the additional feature sets and improved processing ability of the Xbox 360 to produce an entirely new, breathtaking FlatOut experience."

  • Forza 2 Demo This Month - Report (360)
    "We already know that Forza Motorsport 2 is due out next month, but now we're told to expect a demo version within the next few weeks."


Other Stuff...

Not sure if I mentioned it or not, but one of the cabinets came in on Friday, the appliances were installed on Saturday, along with the countertop, it looks REALLY REALLY nice! Everything is slowly coming together. It was good to finally cook some food, instead of relying on the microwave and/or going out to eat. Hopefully this week our last cabinet comes in and we can have our kitchen completed by this weekend.

OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. I couldn't stop laughing at Noah's comments after the game. I have Ohio St. winning it all in my brackets, but I have a hard time thinking they can beat Florida. Hopefully it will be a good game. I watched the Lady Vol's come back and beat the Lady Heel's last night. I turned it on when the Lady Vol's were down 8 with about 5 minutes to play. Pretty good ending, as I was pulling for Tennessee to make the comeback.

Project Gotham Racing 4 Details (360)

Xboxic has posted some Project Gotham Racing 4 details.
"Enhanced Weather Simulation: “One of the slickest new features in PGR is its weather. Bizarre’s using what it likes to call ‘extreme weather’ for more than just making the sky gray. Water beads up on beautifully on all the gorgeous paintjobs, spray jets out from the tires, and in the in-car view, wipers move and windshields ice up.”
Enhanced Raceway Environments: “A TV-style intro sets up each event, with a commentator offering wisdom…Choppers buzz overhead, camera crews and video vans are everywhere, and hordes of fans line the track. They’ll wear gear with your logo, wave your national flag, and react far more obviously to your performance.”
Extended Car Selection: “PGR4 will deliver a much broader set of vehicles, ranging from a vintage’63 Corvette Sting Ray and the ’54 Maserati 250F to the sleek, ultra-modern Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano."


G1 Jockey Coming in June (Wii)

CVG has the scoop.
"Due out on June 29, Wii G1 Jockey will apparently offer an experience more realistic and intuitive than ever seen before with the series thanks to the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Unsurprisingly, you use the Wii Remote to whip your steed, with the Nunchuk steering you around the race course."


Major League Baseball 2K7 Demo (PS3)

According to PSX Extreme, the demo for Major League Baseball 2K7 is available in the PlayStation Store.
"Available now is a playable demo of MLB 2K7, new trailers for Warhawk and Rub-a-Dub, and several new Paramount movie trailers. We have yet to make the baseball comparison between the less-than-impressive Major League Baseball 2K7 and the upcoming MLB 07: The Show for the PS3, but playable demos are always nice additions."


Forza Motorsport 2 Screenshots (360)

Xboxyde has posted some screenshots of Forza Motorsport 2.
"Turn 10 released these 2 images of Forza Motorsport 2, showing the Top Secret S15 in action, and an Exige going head to head with a Porsche 914/6. Both are from the photo mode, and 100% realtime. This game keeps going up in down in my opinion, this time it's up. Let's hope it's not going down ever again!"


NCAA March Madness 07 Themes and Pictures (360)

Major Nelson mentions that there are some NCAA March Madness 07 themes and pictures available on the Marketplace.


Other Stuff...

Yesterday was full of work and I didn't even go to work. First my internet was down almost the entire morning and the delivery truck for our cabinet (we are still waiting on one more) finally arrived. After being promised a delivery of our appliances before noon, they call and say they'll be here at 3:30. My bro stopped by and he did a bunch of electrical work, none of which I had a clue what he was doing. Definitely happy my bro knows though. Thanks homie!

Today is going to be fairly busy as well, the countertop gets installed. They were supposed to be here at 8:30, well...it's almost 9:30 now, so it's about time for an *** chewing.

Under the system, called S.PORT, which is still in a prototype stage, the software will allow you to see replays, stats and other game scores via a wireless feed."


THQ Confirm SD vs RAW For Multiple Consoles

Check out the full story at DarkZero.
"Its predecessor may have seen a rather limited release last year - infact the PS3 got canned long before the console was even launched - but THQ has today confirmed that the 2008 edition of WWE Smackdown vs. Raw will see a widespread release and will hit PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, PSP, Wii and DS when its Autumn release comes later this year.

"We are extremely pleased with the success of the SmackDown vs. Raw franchise and its continued growth to a widespread audience, particularly in our European markets," said Bob Aniello, senior vice president, worldwide marketing, THQ. "With the addition of fresh, innovative game play on the Wii, the tremendous capabilities of the PlayStation 3 system and unique handheld experiences for Nintendo DS and wireless devices, gamers can now truly live the life of a WWE Superstar and choose from numerous ways to play."

There will be a new champion in NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball after UCLA upset defending champion Florida to advance to the title game against Ohio State, according to an EA SPORTS NCAA March Madness 07 videogame simulation of the Final Four.

EA SPORTS predicted defending champion Florida will be upset 66-65 by UCLA, ending the Gators reign as national champion. UCLA turned away two game-winning shot attempts in the final six seconds to clinch the semifinal victory. Florida broke through to score more points against the Bruins than any team yet in the tournament, but in the end, UCLA’s defense was still good enough to repel the Gators and end their hopes at a repeat title.

In the other semifinal, Ohio State knocked off Georgetown, 72-68, sending the Buckeyes to the national championship game.

Florida turned the ball over 19 times in their semifinal loss and shot just 41% from the field as a team. Their outside shooters were particularly cold, going just 4-for-17 from beyond the three-point arc.

The Gators trailed 33-28 at halftime and led only briefly at a couple points in the second half. The game was tight down the stretch and the Bruins went ahead 66-65 with 15 seconds left. Florida called timeout and set up what should have been a good look for a winning shot, but UCLA’s defense rotated well and contested the shot to force the miss. Florida grabbed the rebound but there were two Bruin defenders there to challenge and force another miss. The rebound was knocked around and time eventually expired, sending the Bruins to their title-game match up against Ohio State.

The Hoyas were remarkably poised down the stretch until the final three minutes when their shooters went cold. Georgetown led Ohio State, 65-62, with three minutes left in the game before the Buckeyes went on a 10-3 run to clinch the victory. The Buckeyes made three consecutive low-post shots to move ahead 68-65 with 1:25 remaining. Georgetown missed five consecutive shots in the final three minutes until scoring a three-pointer at the buzzer for the final margin.

We have just posted our NBA Street Homecourt review. Find out what Chris Sullivan had to say about it.
"NBA Jam started it. Back in 1993, Midway released an over-the-top basketball game featuring professional players, and it instantly became an arcade hit. Fourteen years later, we’ve seen these action-packed games, featuring unrealistic gameplay, for every major sport. However, it’s no longer Midway’s NBA Jam that dominates the genre, it’s EA Big’s NBA Street series at the top of the hill, and they’ve held that spot for several years now. With their latest installment, EA Big makes their debut on the Playstation 3 with NBA Street: Homecourt."

Tapes ‘n Tapes to Headline 2K Sports’ 2nd Annual Hit-n-Run Tour in Support of Major League Baseball®2K7

National Hit-n-Run Tour to Feature Campus-Geared Video Game Challenge and Music Tour

New York, NY – March 28, 2007 – 2K Sports, the sports publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today announced the 2nd annual Hit-n-Run tour in support of Major League Baseball®2K7. The tour kicks off with a college campus focused video game tournament followed by XL Records’ Tapes ‘n Tapes headlining the tour’s second leg. The tournament runs from March 6th to April 9th, with Tapes ‘n Tapes taking over from April 16th through May 24th.

Kicking off the first part half of the Hit-n-Run Tour prior to Tapes ‘n Tapes’ arrival is a campus roving video game tournament that invites the public to compete in the Home Run Derby mode of Major League Baseball 2K7 for Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. The champion will be awarded a trophy and prizes, while participants checking out the game on a multitude of kiosks will receive a gift bag loaded with 2K Sports swag. The tournament leg will feature emcee DJ Statik Selektah from Shade 45, the Sirius Radio Show. Among the giveaways and prizes are games, soundtrack CDs, exclusive T-shirts created by famous designers like IS050, limited edition gloves by Rawlings, authentic retro style jerseys, and much more.

The second leg of the tour switches from the tournament mode to Tapes 'n Tapes, who are among the many independent and mainstream alt rock artists that make up the video game soundtrack for Major League Baseball 2K7 and redefine the sound of the sport for the gamers of today.

“Working with Tapes ‘n Tapes for the Hit-n-Run tour is a great way to showcase how the sound of baseball has changed to suit the current generation of gamers,” said Tim Rosa, 2K Sports’ Director of Brand and Lifestyle Marketing. “Their live performance is explosive and takes you down a path that is reminiscent of seeing The Pixies live for the first time. They kill it on every song, so we’re excited to have them represent the 2K Sports brand.”

Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Tapes 'n Tapes formed in 2003 and has released two albums, the self-released Tapes 'n Tapes EP in 2004 followed by the full-length release, The Loon, on Ibid Records in 2005. The band signed to XL Recordings in 2006, and the label re-released The Loon. With a myriad of influences and tempos, they represent a new breed of rock artist that defies any traditional genre blueprint. The band will be performing a combination of recent and unreleased songs from their upcoming album.

"Three-fourths of Tapes 'n Tapes love to play video games, and all of us are baseball fans, so it seemed like a good fit for us to have ‘Insistor’ on the soundtrack for Major League Baseball 2K7,” said Josh Grier, Tapes ‘n Tapes’ vocalist. “On top of all of that, what band wouldn't want to be on a soundtrack that also includes songs by The Stooges, Nirvana, The Pixies, The Walkmen, and The Thermals?"

3/29 Statesboro, GA - Russell Union at Georgia Southern Univ. Doors: 11-5pm
