Sonic getting a much needed break {Joystiq Xbox}

Mar 30th 2007 5:42PM Ummm... how about some 2D?

Am I alone on that one?

Crackdown leads game sales in February [update 1] {Joystiq Xbox}

Mar 16th 2007 12:35PM Let's focus on the real issue here: how is the guy in the picture dual wielding, and when do I get to do that with my agent?

The hidden secrets of Outland {WoW}

Mar 15th 2007 7:50PM Ha BaboonNL, someone told me about that, and when I was putting this little tour together, I spent like an hour flying around all the mushrooms in Zangarmarsh, but never found it. What's the loc on that one?

The top 5 "secret" games coming to 360 {Joystiq Xbox}

Mar 13th 2007 3:05PM I really doubt WoW will ever come to a console. Blizzard has their hands full dealing with it on a PC, and no matter how much money Microsoft is putting on the table, I doubt it's more than they're making via the 8 million subscriber fees.

But KOTOR and Hellgate are pretty likely. And I would really like to see a Crimson Skies 2.

Breakfast Topic: When Shaman go OOM {WoW}

Mar 8th 2007 12:57AM Oh man I do play a shaman, and I have so much to say about this, I can't even get it all organized in my head. I'll just say that yes Shaman are oom even more than oomkin, and it seems that's the way the devs want it. There's all kinds of things they can do (mana tide should be trainable for all shaman, imo, and shaman dps needs a serious boost-- I mean "to compete with mages or balance" druids kind of boost), but they won't because to make the Shaman class more powerful isn't very Shaman-like.

If you can believe it, I'm bragging more than whining when I say this-- Shaman is a class defined by its weakness. We can't heal like priests or druids (our only HoT is the top level resto talent, and we have no shield to speak of), we can't dps like mages (we can't even dps like balance druids), and we can't wear plate or even buff like Paladins. The fact that we still find the time to do everything and use all of our various wacky abilities to make ourselves useful is a tribute to just how powerful Shaman are.

Rumor: Gears of War DLC and Achievement upgrade? {Joystiq Xbox}

Mar 6th 2007 5:44PM Would love all this stuff. But I think that makes it too good to be true.

Crackdown: Climb the Agency Tower ... in a SUV? {Joystiq Xbox}

Mar 5th 2007 5:41PM I've got 4 stars in driving-- when you hold b and drive into a wall with the pimped out SUV, it will go up the wall.

The only thing is that after a while it will fall back off the wall, and you have to time another button press just right for it to grab onto the wall again. I couldn't get it to stick for long, but this guy is really good at it-- the weird camera angle makes it even harder. He should have driven up the taller one, though, and if he landed the SUV on top, he could have jumped even higher for crazy air.

Alien Hominid attacks XBLA {Joystiq Xbox}

Feb 28th 2007 11:56AM eww no online co-op? I thought that was available here. I'll probably still try out the demo at least-- from what I've heard about this on other systems, $10 is a bargain.

WRUP: skills for kills edition {Joystiq Xbox}

Feb 23rd 2007 11:10AM Skills for kills, Agent. Skills for kills.

Breakfast Topic: Most annoying mob in The Burning Crusade {WoW}

Feb 14th 2007 9:05AM I hate those Darkcasters in Mana Tombs, although I heard they got a little nerf in yesterday's patch.
