DJ Shadow DJ Hero

DJ Shadow DJ Hero – Today it was revealed that popular DJ, DJ Shadow has been working closely with the Activision team in charge of developing the upcoming game “DJ Hero”, which will follow a formula similar to Guitar Hero games.

Also, according to some reports, he may have also gave his likeness to a character and some of his songs. The news came out after an interview with popular magazine Game Informer. In that interview, DJ Shadow talks briefly about the game system. He said:

"you have two records playing, and you have a sample track, and you have to basically simulate what you're hearing."

Interesting. I once played a DJ arcade machine a few years ago. I liked it but I ended up losing lots of quarters!

Those were the news on DJ Shadow DJ Hero.

Chuck Norris – Bring on The Pain

If you are a fan of Check Norris, you Hill love the new game out there for cell phones, it is called Check Norris: Bring on the Pain. And well, it is about Chuck Norris bringing on the pain to thousands of enemies during his movie career.

This is actually the second official game ever made about Mr. Norris, the first one is a classic for the Commodore 64 called Chuck Norris Superkicks. I have found videos of the two games for you to check out.

I must say though that the new game looks very cool. Just take a look at the intro art! I’m sure a horde of Chuck Norris fans will be there downloading this game.

EDIT: The video of the new game can't be embedded so here's the link for you to chekc out!

Xbox 360 D Pad Sparks Some Discussion

Yesterday, an article was published in Destructoid called "Undeniable failure: An open letter to Microsoft on the Xbox 360 Dpad". In it, the author explains why the D-pad on Xbox 360 controllers suck.

Basically it is because a "fuc**ed up" construction of the controller on the inside. Now, I've had many controllers on my life, and I have to say that the Xbox and Xbox 360 controllers are the best for me. I've tried playing with analog sticks on PS but it just sucks. This is important to me since I like to play lots of First Person Shooters.

However, the article reminded me of some days ago, when I was entering my name on Xbox Live and the Analog sticks seemed to work better than the D-Pad. Keep in mind though, that I've never thought of this as a problem.

Destructioid's evidence seems to be right, and I have to also say WHY MICROSOFT? Bad controller, 3 red lights, well... This is still my favorite "next-generation" console though. I love it, and I'm accustomed to playing a lot with the Analog sticks.

However I still use the D-Pad, this article will now make me conscious of the failure. Damn!

Tibia is one of the oldest and most successful massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) created in Europe. In an MMORPG people from all over the world meet on a virtual playground to explore areas, solve tricky riddles and undertake heroic exploits.

It has 10 years online! That's a lot, and it is a tough achievement to complete in the World of multiplayer games. Their game is still running with the same 2D graphics that make you go back in time. Chek them out at:

To Finish the Game o to Squeeze It Until It’s Dry?

From my experience, when it comes to players, there are two types of them, regarding how they consider a game finished. One of them just moves forward with the story and missions until he or she gets “The End”, the credits and that stuff. The other one isn’t satisfied with fancy letters running up the screen and exhilarating CG Animation – They want more –They want all!!!

There could even be a third class, which is a mix. I am of this hybrid class. There are games that really deserve to be squeezed to the max. (They are fun, cool extras get unlocked, or it becomes a vice!) I can mention a few: GTA San Andreas, Saints Row, Crackdown, Need for Speed, etc.

Which kind of player are you? If you like playing a lot of games like I do, sometimes you have no other choice than play until the end, try another game and so on. But if you have had the same 5 games for the last 3 years, you can become an expert one ach one! I remember playing the Aladdin game on SNES over and over again just beating my best time to finish it … Ahh…those days… I could have bought the worse game out there, and still play it every day.

Late Too Late Reviews: Burnout Revenge

Today I’ve been playing Burnout Revenge for 15 minutes, here is my first impression:

This game is totally different from what you’ve played n car games. It’s like an advanced bumper car ride, along with all the cool cars you’ll have available. One thing: out of the first 15 minutes, I had to stand 10 of them of a girl (sounding much like Brooke Burke on NFS Underground) giving me all the details on the game, races, cars etc.

You thought you got rid of her? No! She is still in the very first race of each type giving you again those 10 minutes videos of cars smashing on each other while she still talks and talks and talks. Well, as you can see, I’ve only played 5 minutes of game, and then I had to go to the bathroom, and let my girlfriend play it for a while. She was instantly hooked. So there’s something to give your girl when you want to distract her for a few minutes. ;)

Well, that’s it. I really like smashing cars, and actually is pretty harder than it sounds, because you are looking for big combos here!. This is it so far in my late too late review. This game is from 2005 go figure. I have a stash of Xbox games that I’ve never played. So it’s time to get my thumbs dirrrrrty! Peace!

New Overlord Screenshots

Overlord is an upcoming game from Triumph Studios soon to be released for the Xbox 360 and PC. And I have to say the new screenshots look VERY NICE!!!

Well, to define the graphic style I think I should say “It’s like grabbing fable and Oblivion and mixing it in a big bad bowl” But enough talking, when the word screenshots is out we just wanna see the pictures. Following this link to Kotaku.
