A Modest Video Game Update, of sorts…

January 15, 2008

Hey there, PD. I’m back from my hiatus! I kinda needed to take it to focus on settling into my new job with Sega of America….and unfortunately, the NDA I signed during my first day prevents me from talking about everything I’m working on or see around the office.

First off, for those far too broke and/or cheap, Dark-Alex (http://www.dark-alex.org) has released the PSP custom firmware version 3.80 M33. What does this mean for you? The ability to enjoy all the current features of the PSP while taking advantage of the ability to play homebrew “of a completely legal nature”. I’m not saying that I condone of playing illegally downloaded games….I’m just pointing out that the option is there should you so choose to walk down that path.

Super Smash Brothers Brawl (Wii) DELAYED: As if a million fan-boys screamed out in terror, then suddenly silenced. Thaaaaaat’s right kids. The hotly anticipated sequel in the Smash Bros. franchise has been delayed once again to March 9th in America on reasons of not enough polish on the game to make it the best it can be. Worry not! Game delays are a GOOD thing. No reason to quickly push out a game when it could be that much better!

Have a Nvidia Graphics Card? Have some cake. In a deal with Nvidia, Valve just recently started offering an extended Portal Demo (Portal: First Slice), as well as some other bits (Peggle Extreme, Half-Life 2 Deathmatch, etc), to PC gamers with a Nvidia graphics card. All you need is a high speed net connection,and a Nvidia graphics card. The link for the sweet deal can be found here: http://www.steampowered.com/nvidia/

And yes, Portal is THAT good.

That’s all for now. More coming soon…like some reviews….tasty reviews…..
