WWE RAW 05/30/2011 Preview

May 30, 2011 // 2 Comments

The following preview is courtesy of Live on the next Raw, the WWE Universe will hear from the baleful behemoth, Kharma, about her unexpected emotional breakdown last Monday. What will the devastator of Divas say about her tearful episode? The rumor is still that Kharma is pregnant, but I doubt WWE admits that on air tomorrow night. Hopefully this segment is intriguing enough though, since it’s probably the last time we’ll see Kharma on WWE TV for at least nine months. I think the thing I’m most looking forward to is the follow up to Alex Riley’s GREAT beat [...]

Retro Mini Review: Major League Baseball Featuring Ken Griffey Jr.

May 29, 2011 // 2 Comments

Released in 1998, this is the only sports game (other than NCAA Football 2006) that has ever truly kept me coming back for more. How much more? Well, I played a full season every year until 2010…  twelve years.  So the answer to the question is, A LOT more. This incarnation of Griffey baseball wasn’t as wacky as the SNES games that carried his name, but the gameplay was as good as ever and it featured real baseball players and not simply made up guys. It featured a level of realism and ease of play, without taking itself overly serious and getting bogged down in unnecessary [...]

Mass Effect 2 (PC, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 [Reviewed]) Developer: BioWare Publisher: Electronic Arts Genre(s): Third Person Shooter, Action RPG Released: January 26, 2010 (PC, 360), January 18, 2011 (PS3) ESRB Rating: M – Mature When the first Mass Effect game came out I had neither a PC that could handle it nor an Xbox 360, and so I missed out on it. When this one, Mass Effect 2, came out I still had neither a PC that could handle it nor an Xbox 360, and so I assumed that once again I’d miss out on it. But as luck would have it, Mass Effect 2 arrived on Playstation 3 almost one full [...]
