Well done Microsoft, well done. You’ve listened to the fans, you’ve made some good policy changes and now Don Mattrick can finally sleep at night without waking to find burning Xs on his lawn. This is news that will make people happy. Unless they happen to be Cliff Bleszinski, it seems.
Bad news everyone! Back in 1999 when The Simpsons began a long descent into crapville that it has still yet to surface from, he brought about Futurama. A fresh and clever show set in the future, it was ultimately too smart to remain on television. It’s been cancelled before, but it managed to revive itself. Pity that this time, it really is the end for that witty show. Again.
What a clusterfrig today has been. I was supposed to finally get my luggage back today. As was Geoff. And we did! Except I got Geoff’s, and Geoff got mine. Faith in aviation industry, restored.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: 2011’s Mortal Kombat is one of the finest fighting games ever made. And now, it’s a fighting game that will be on PC as well. So is your rig ready to run a one on one fight to the death? Or is it a fatality for your processor? Hit the jump to find out if it’ll test your PC might.
Hands down, one of the best cartoons of last year was the sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra. I loved the show, and while it wasn’t completely perfect, it hit a massive amount of high notes in the process. Book two is on the way, and here’s what it looks like so far.
We’re back baby! After a week in LA, and probably a lot longer in the air, your faithful Lazygamer peons have completed the holy trip to the stapled SPERTS center area. We saw a ton, played more and got yelled at by security for having accents. And trying to steal a few next-gen consoles. Bah, they have no sense of humour over there, I tells ya.
Dammit, I do love me some Pokémon games. I’ve still got the majority of my game cartridges, and will most likely lament that I have wasted far too much of my life on those games, when I finally kick the bucket. But in the meantime, I’m more than happy to pump in an average of 60 hours per game, when a new generation of pocket monsters arrives on a Nintendo device. And this year, I’ll probably do so while yelling “FAIRIES”, constantly.
It wasn’t just dudes with guns and new console controllers at E3, ya know! There was plenty of tech on offer, including the new tech of the Kinect 2.0. Now, I’ll admit, most folks just don’t want that piece of Xbox One tech. But for those demographics that do? They’re going to be real happy.
Still don’t have a console, and happen to be just dying to play The Last of Us or some of those other Microsoft and Sony exclusive games? Well good news then! Dion Wired is having a sale, and you can snag one of them for around R2000. There’s a bunch of decent games on sale as well, so happy hunting!
You know what the most overlooked aspect is of console design? Longevity. Few console features looks that will last a decade or two. I mean hell, just look at Atari? Wooden panels? Yeah, that’ll go nicely with the drapes. The Playstation 4 on the other hand, is a sexy beast of a console. And that’s all because Sony didn’t want to embarrass you.
Well, that’s it folks, E3 is over. Thanks for coming, now bugger off before we release the Call of Duty attack dogs on you all. RUN YOU DAMN JOURNALISTS, RUN FOR YOUR CRITICAL HIT POINTS!
SPERTS! Believe it or not, but I happen to be a fan of at least one sport. You know the one. That noble art of punching one guy in the face harder than he can kick the heirs off of your man sack in return. I’m talking about fighting, and when it’s legal, it’s awesome. Take UFC for instance, which isn’t only a great spectacle, but might be a great game again soon.
Enough negative Xbox One news, at least for a few hours. I’ll admit that Microsoft isn’t doing a great job communicating their new console, but there’s still a lot of grunt under that hood. And believe it or not, the most surprising feature of the console may come from the hardware side that most gamers don’t want: The Kinect.
You look at the line up of games, and chances are that you’ll feel that a little too family friendly. Personally, I don’t have a problem with that, but if the Wii U console wants to attract a larger audience, it’s going to have to shed some blood. Or get gratuitous with the action. And buddy, Bayonetta 2 is both.
