Want to play Fable 2 for free?

September 29, 2009

To play the game for free you need to either steal it or borrow it. Or you can play the free Episode 1 of Fable 2 that’s on the Xbox Live Marketplace right now.

I think this solution is much better than stealing it, this way you don’t get a criminal record!

Super Street Fighter IV Trailer

Crash Course Crash and Burn? [UPDATE of an UPDATE]

September 29, 2009

New DLC for Left 4 Dead just released, but there is a slight snag…In August I reported that Crash Course would be 560 microsoft points for the Xbox 360 version.

In the 40 minutes that the content has been released, the internet has nerd raged (myself included) cause the game is 800 MSP. 560 was a number we could all agree on, it was half the content of a normal campaign, so it’s half the price of normal DLC.

Is this just a glitch in the system? Is 800 points a place holder they forgot to take off? Will people that bought it anyway get a refund, or are we destined to spend the 800 to get the new content. I know a lot of people are unhappy, we will just have to wait until daylight if there are any updates.

While us Xbox gamers complain about not getting cheap content, PS3 owners complain about not getting the game. We really need to pick our battles better…

Crash Course on the Xbox Live Marketplace

UPDATE: Major Nelson’s twitter feed says that the 800 point price is wrong and is being looked into. He also says it may take a few hours or more to fix the problem all over the globe. Crash Course WILL be 560, just wait until it’s updated.

UPDATE 2: Yo dawg, we heard you like updates, so we put an update in your update so you can update people about Crash Course while you update people about Crash Course being 560 on the market place now. Enjoy!

To Catch a Predator: Swiss Edition

September 28, 2009

polanskiIn 1977 Roman Polanski had sex with a 13 year old girl. He was convicted and plead guilty to some pretty messed up charges. I’ll spare the gritty details and just tell you what he did was wrong in any court. He then fled the country to France, where he is a legal resident. France has an extradition treaty with the U.S., but can refuse to extradite one of their own citizens. On Saturday Polanski traveled to Switzerland to accept a lifetime achievement award, and that’s when he got busted.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010 Trailer

September 28, 2009

New trailer for A Nightmare on Elm Street staring Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger. In the brief moment you get to see his face it doesn’t capture the same feel of Robert Englund’s portrayal. It’s still too early to judge, Rorschach just might be able to pull it off.

Xbox Live Down 9/23/09

September 23, 2009

Not exactly sure what happened. Everything just kinda exploded. I downloaded Zombie Apocalypse from the marketplace, there was a system update for it, then a console update and now Live is down. I confirmed it on the Live Status page, they are aware and working on the problem (so they say).

This happened at about 5:00 A.M. EST, it’s not known as of yet when it will be back up. Hopefully someone will update when it goes back up.

UPDATE: Live is up! Everyone back to their normal positions on couches!
