Journal: Kinect Four

Though I was unable to write last week, I found a little spare time to play some games.  I jumped into a few games of Battlefield Bad Company 2.  I absolutely love the team mentality that is required for that game.  It’s the reason that Call of Duty has become more and more obsolete for me.  That lone-wolf style of game gets old really quick, but playing with your friends (not to mention spawning on them so you’re never out of the loop) seems to have a lot more longevity.  As long as EA and Dice continue to support it, I’ll continue playing.

Xbox 360 Arcade Has Brain, Though Small

Microsoft has confirmed that the new arcade versions of the Xbox 360 have 256MB of internal memory. So if you don’t have a 360 yet –like me–, and you don’t want to spend the extra hundred big ones for a 60GB Hard Drive, you now have the option of getting a system that has internal memory.

Finally, you can download that theme you always wanted! Too bad there isn’t more memory for you to download actual Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) games. Also, keep in mind that you’ll have to buy an actual memory stick if you want to take your save files with you.

Snake Stowsaway in Box on the Rumor Train Heading to Xbox

An update to Konami’s website has gotten Metal Gear Solid fanboy’s panties up in a bunch. The picture (seen after the break)shows the now iconic exclamation point from the Metal Gear Solid series added to an upside down one. What does the equation come out to? It equals what looks like the Xbox 360 Power Ring –and the international on symbol– with one notable exception: there’s an exclamation point in it. And obviously, jokes have already been made about it. Just remember that this is only a rumor –some even think it’s a stretch–, and not to get your hopes up. If more information comes to light, it will be posted here as soon as it is known.

Update: It’s actually being teased by Kojima Productions. This means that Kojima, the genius behind the series seems to be spearheading this new production.

I Can Run Faster Than You Can! Mirror’s Edge DLC Confirmed

If there is one thing I found evident from reading reviews of Mirror’s Edge, it’s that everybody wanted more of the running and less of the gun-play, some more free world running was wished for as well. If you’re still itching for some more roof-top time trial action or just a chance to run aimlessly for no apparent reason, look no further.

DICE has announced that there will be downloadable content (DLC) for Mirror’s Edge in January (PS3 will be receiving an exclusive map). From the trailer (seen after the break) we can guess that this won’t be as much a metropolis as it will be abstract planes crashing together to form some abstract M.C.-Esher-style gameplay. Are you ready to leave the city behind and brave the floating pillars in the sky?

The Wii, Where Does It Stand Today?

The Wii just recently celebrated it’s second birthday, but how far has it actually come since then. Since it’s release, there have been only a handful of games catered to the hard core. The most noticable of which are The Legend of Zelda: Twighlight Princess, Metroid Prime: Corruption, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy, and Mario Kart Wii. Sure, there have been a few others here and there like Rayman Raving Rabids, but do those games actually make you want to play your Wii again?
