Forbidden LittleBigPlanet: A Review

I’m almost done with Dead Space, a game that continues to present me with visions of extreme and total wrongness. But I’m taking a break to actually fire up my PS3, which I don’t do too often, and mess around with LittleBigPlanet, a trailer for which is here:

LittleBigPlanet is basically what would happen if Michel Gondry were ever …

Dead Space Review: It’s Not Just the Space That’s Dead

Dead Space is out today. But because I’m a member of the East Coast media elite, I’ve actually had a copy for a couple of weeks, which I’ve been playing whenever I’m not out rigging elections and manipulating the stock markets and such. Dead Space is an extremely intense, beautifully produced zombie-survival-horror-first-person-shooter …

The Halo 3 Recon Trailer

Your daily dose of simulated-HUD-porn:

Looks beautiful — I like the sense that they’re going all noir and urban and rainy with this.

Coming 2009. Eh, it’ll be about 5 minutes before somebody builds the whole thing in LittleBigPlanet. Sackboy FTW!

New Halo Wars Trailer

Serena is so the new Cortana …

Hell is an Endless Series of Cut Scenes

I don’t know if anybody else played through Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Of those who did, I don’t know how many of you had trouble killing Darth Maul.

Of course it wasn’t really Darth Maul, since Darth Maul got cut in half by Ewan McGregor in Episode 1. It was this droid called Proxy that holographically turns itself into various …

Bungie Will Release New Halo 3 Content. Wort Wort Wort

Yesterday I got an advance copy of LucasArts’ Fracture in the mail, so I’ve been deforming terrain like a mother. But embargoes are very chic at the moment, and LucasArts has embargoed reviews of the game till October. So that’s all I can say.

In other news, Bungie has released a teaser-thing for a new Halo-related project. The …

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

I’ve been playing this game pretty much non-stop for the past two weeks. Which pretty much tells you what you need to know, since I’m not a completist: I’ll bail on a game pronto if I’m bored.

I don’t really disagree with Tycho’s mixed assessment, but the flaws he names just don’t bug me as much as they seemed to bug him. Just knowing …

E3 by the Trailers

I’m not at E3. I read about it on blogs like a normal person. While I am doing so the only thing I really care about is the trailers. So I’m going to paste all the major trailers together into one post and say things about them. Because I care.

First up: The Sims 3.

Yeah. I still don’t get it.
