[Vol. 2] The BrainBusters Present: A Walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

October 31, 2011 // 0 Comments

(Thanks be to sheepster for the Brainbuster banners) The Snake behind him, the last thing the Dead Man expected was to be confronted by a cockroach. It is not unheard of, a small man picking a fight with a man much larger than he, but surely Harvey Wippleman must have known that there was little good to come of provoking the Undertaker. But provoke, Harvey Wippleman would. Provoke and then immediately seek refuge behind his newest client, a simpleton who knew no better than to protect this small white man who brought him chickens. They called Kamala the “Ugandan Giant” with good reason. [...]

[Vol. 1] The BrainBusters Present: A Walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

October 31, 2011 // 0 Comments

(Thanks be to sheepster for the Brainbuster banners) His story began six feet under the ground—somewhere in Death Valley. He ascended suddenly—a cold November in 1990—straight from a Charles Dickens novel, mixed evenly with Poe and Hawthorne. Grey boots, grey gloves (no prints), grey-and-black tie, boxed like a funeral casket. Bobby Heenan called him “cold as ice.” “Awesome” is all Gorilla Monsoon could think to say. Vince McMahon, “Creepy.” Fans first meeting the Undertaker knew nothing of the legacy that lay before him, nor did they understand his [...]

October 29, 2011 // 0 Comments

Sorry for the delay folks, I’ve been having some sort of computer issue that I can’t quite fully figure out just yet.  Here is this week’s Top Ten…Finally.   1) Alabama Crimson Tide 8-0 (4) 49 – Tide rolled past Tennessee in the 2nd half last week to set up a big showdown with LSU next weekend. 2) LSU Tigers 8-0 (1) 46 – See above comments, except replace with Tennessee with Auburn and 2nd half with whole game. 3) Boise State Broncos 7-0 38 – And the Brocos complete a trifecta of top teams on bye this week. 4) Oklahoma State 7-0 35 – Cowboys dispatched [...]

October 27, 2011 // 0 Comments

THQ today released the details of their Fan Axxess program for WWE ’12, and it works exactly the same as it did for Smackdown vs. RAW 2011. I bought into the program then, and I’ll be doing so again for WWE ’12. The Fan Axxess program will be available on XBLA and PSN for 960 Microsoft Points or $11.99. This is essentially pre-ordering all of the DLC for the game. If you plan on buying every item for WWE ’12, you’ll save 25% by buying Fan Axxess as each piece of DLC will sale for $0.99/80MS Points. In addition to all of the DLC, buying Fan Axxess also includes [...]

October 27, 2011 // 3 Comments

WWE ’12 hits stores on November 22nd, and it’s first DLC pack was announced on Tuesday (and the DLC is also coming in November).

Uncharted 3 Co-op Adventure Gameplay

October 25, 2011 // 1 Comment

The above video from GameTrailers shows off some gameplay footage of Uncharted 3’s co-op adventure mode, and it looks fantastic. You’ll probably recognize some Uncharted 2 characters in there (as well as one from the first game), and the different adventure maps (one of which is also from the first game). I’ve been playing Uncharted 3’s competitive multiplayer all month long, Team Objective, but co-op is what I’m looking forward to the most (besides the single player, obviously). During the June/July beta, I played co-op (adventure and arena) almost exclusively [...]

WWE ’12 Road to WrestleMania Trailer

October 23, 2011 // 0 Comments

WWE ’12 is a complete overhaul from Smackdown vs. RAW, so it only makes sense that the single player story/campaign mode has also undergone major changes. Gone are the four or five separate stories spanning three months, WWE ’12 features one real story that spans 18 months and comes in three acts. The first act is the Villain story, where you’ll control the Celtic Warrior, Sheamus. This story will run right into the next act, that of the Outsider where you take control of Triple H. And finally, that story runs into the final third act; the Hero’s story. The hero is a [...]

Call of Duty fans, the wait is almost over. And while it’s still a couple of weeks before launch, Activision has released the launch trailer for the highly anticipated Modern Warfare 3.

WWE ’12 Inside The Ring – Mastering Grappling: Daniel Bryan vs. Sin Cara Full Match

October 20, 2011 // 1 Comment

The above Daniel Bryan vs. Sin Cara match shows off the new grappling system, and a Halloween themed custom arena that was created using the new Create An Arena mode. Personally, I would have preferred to see a Halloween Havoc created arena, but it looked pretty cool nonetheless. Of course gameplay looks great. WWE ’12 drops on November 22nd for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. Just a little over a month away and I really can’t wait for this one much [...]

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Launch Trailer

October 20, 2011 // 0 Comments

Epic trailer is seriously epic. The above launch trailer shows off why Uncharted 3 is my most anticipated game. Everything about it just screams awesome. As much as I’ve been enjoying the UC3 multiplayer subway promotion, it is the single player that makes Uncharted 3 so anticipated. The multiplayer is really just a bonus (and a great one at that) as far as I’m concerned. November 1st needs to hurry up and get here. Just a little over a week away [...]
