The Pistons continue to roll along this season, finally putting away the Heat late in the 4th to seal the win. I almost went through the roof after Dice dunked on Mourning. J-Dub and Wade were definitely feeling it last night, as both of them were hitting big shots. I expect it from Wade, but not Williams, it was like he could penetrate whenever he wanted to last night. I love the talk about a 70 win season, but I think the Stones can get about 65. If they can stay healthy, they'll get close to 70, just not sure they can do that.

Hard to believe 2005 is almost over isn't it? What's your "New Year's Resolution?"

We have just posted our NBA 2K6 review. Find out what Shawn Drotar has to say about it.
"Is it a port? I suppose so - but to call NBA 2K6 simply a "port" wouldn't do it justice. Essentially every issue that the game had on the original Xbox has been fixed, the controls have been improved, and the end result is the finest basketball game ever made - period."

We have just posted our FIFA Soccer 06 Road to 2006 FIFA World Cup review. Find out what Shawn Drotar has to say about it.
"It's fun, it's pretty and it's almost World Cup time - so FIFA 06: Road to the FIFA World Cup would be perfect for Xbox 360 owners, right?
Well, that depends on what you're looking for:
If fun and pretty are all you're after, then yes.
If depth and realism are what you're seeking instead; sadly, no - this isn't the game for you."

We have just posted our Tony Hawk's American Wasteland review. Find out what Shawn Drotar has to say about it.
"First and foremost, the biggest change is not with the game itself, but with the control scheme. The Xbox 360 controller's design now has four buttons (well, two buttons and two triggers) atop the controller, making it more like the PS2's Dual Shock - for which Tony Hawk's control scheme was designed for years ago. The change for the gamer is dramatic and positive. Many more tricks can be pulled off with ease, and the gameplay - while not changing one iota - is improved by default."

NewStarSoccer has posted a demo of New Star Soccer 3.
"New Star Soccer 3 takes football gaming to another level putting you right in the action. For the first time in the series matches are played out in beautiful 2D graphics giving you full control of your player's actions. Defender, midfielder or attacker, the choice is yours, just make sure you keep the boss, fans and everyone else happy on your rise to football stardom!"

Fragland has posted some screenshots of Grand Raid Offroad.
"The graphics of the game sure look ok, hopefully the gameplay is too. The French developer will make use of a world of no less than 10 000 kmē. Furthermore, Grand Raid Offroad will contain about five different game modes of which Freerun, Keep the Flag and Stunt."

Revolution-Europe has posted some screenshots of FIFA Street DS.
"Heading to the DS in 2006 will be a handheld version of Electronic Art's Fifa Street, which has already graced home consoles with a second incarnation. Action appears to be shown in full 3D on the top screen, while the bottom displays stats and a control indicator."

UGO has posted their review of NHL 2K6, giving it a B+.
"It's another solid entry into the 2K Sports hockey franchise this year, and it once again challenges EA for top spot. The Xbox 360 version does lose some of its value when compared to the easily comparable Xbox game, but hockey games are not always going to be that cheap (especially in this generation). NHL 2K6 is your only choice for Xbox 360 right now, but it presents itself well enough and plays true to the sport."

"Konami released this "new" trailer of Rumble Roses XX, along with these images presenting a few costums of this high class game."

Yes, we are still here searching the internet for news. Unfortunately, there aren't many sites updating at this time of the year, but we'll keep looking.

Wow, what a crazy Alamo Bowl last night huh? Michigan had about 7 or 8 laterrals and got it to around the 13 before the game was over. There were all kinds of players from Nebraska on the field, I was shocked there wasn't a penalty, I'm sure the Wolverine fans (Clay?) are pretty upset about it. It was a great game, but the Wolverines were up by 11 in the 4th quarter, so they can't blame it all on the missed call on the last play of the game, but it sure wouldn't have hurt things, lol. I thought they were going to score, it was crazy.

The big Heat vs. Pistons game is on tonight, I can't wait. Both teams are looking good, so it should be a very good test to see how good both teams really are. Go Pistons!

Dan was playing NBA 2K6 on the 360 last night while I was trying to organize some things. He zoomed in on a few plays in instant reply, good god man. The graphics are insanely good in this game.

Well, this morning I had to get my brakes fixed and power steering flushed. I had to get the pads and rotars replaced on the rear, my fronts were OK. I always wondered what the strange noise was when I made sharp long turns, mostly during U-turns. It turns out, I needed my power steering flushed. I don't hear the noise anymore, woohoo!

The Pistons took care of the Raps last night, but the Raps did come back to make it interesting at the end. The big game against the Heat is tomorrow, should be a great game!

Man, seriously... I need to get more organized. I used to have a **** and span clean desk, both at work and at home. Nowadays, both desks are a mess and I can almost never find things where I thought I had left them. I used to be extremely organized, now I'm just a mess. I think my "New Year's" resolution will be to get more organized, it's amazing really.
