Batman: Arkham Asylum Give-Away Results

Well, the response was much less then expected. I had many people check out the site during the give-away, but not many people actually participated. I really wanted to give this game away, but I have to stay by my word. Next time I will have the requirements be much lower, even though I didn’t think I was asking for too much.


In conclusion, try harder next time. Let your friends know about it, and make sure they participate.

New X-Men Movie Trailer

I found this trailer, and to say the least, I am disappoint. It doesn’t appear to have a single good actor after replacing everyone else from the previous movies. So stupid, but I’ll probably see it eventually anyhow though. But what do you think, is this gonna be any good or will this be complete crap? Leave a comment.

The End of the White Stripes

Yesterday the White Stripes posted on their website that the band is done. The following was on their site.

“The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011,
their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live.

The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any
health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health.

It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve What is beautiful and special about
the band and have it stay that way.”

I’ve enjoyed their music for many years, and hearing that they’re over is hard for me to grasp.

Noby Noby Boy – Playstatoin 3 Review

Noby Noby Boy is made by the creators of Katamari, the wacky game where you pick up small objects with your ball so that it grows larger so you can pick up even larger objects. The story in Noby Noby Boy is this, you play Boy, a creature that can stretch hisnoby_boy_esrb body, and you try and help Girl (a much larger version of Boy) reach all of the planets in the solar system. As you make Boy grow, so does Girl. Every player playing adds to Girl’s growth, so it’s a combined effort. The problem is though that there is no objectives, no point. Your not forced to make yourself grow. You can do whatever you want, but there isn’t much to do. You can eat people, which is a plus, and then crap them out. When you arrive at a planet the only thing you gain is new environments to explore, and by explore I mean walking around for a couple of minutes looking at the little area they gave you to explore. Is this game worth a $5 download? That’s debatable. I don’t think it is, but that’s just me. The fun doesn’t last very long.

Final Rating: 3/5
