The new’s just keeps getting better.  Not only am I enjoying 3 very awesome games at the moment (Fire Emblem: Awakening, Tomb Raider and SWTOR) and that it’s only March, and there’s still a slew of games (and systems) set to be released later on this year, but now you can get free DLC‘s for Fire Emblem: Awakening.  I think i’m going to give this a go right now.   Read the press release below.

Ides of March

Yeah, the title is sort of clichéd for this month, but who cares.   Anyway, we’re one month closer to closing out the first quarter of the year.  It seems like 2013 just started, close your eyes, and we are three months in already.  With a few games on my list already released, (Fire Emblem: Awakening, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance), it’s not even close to slowing down.  In fact, March has 3 games being released that  I am looking forward to.

Tomb Raider and Sim City 5 get’s released this coming Tuesday (March 5th), and Army of Two: Devil’s Cartel later on in the month.  With a current rotation of 5 games being played (SWTOR, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Resident Evil 6, Medal of Honor: Advance Warfighter) It will be tough to adopt 2 possibly 3 more games on my list.  I may have to hurry up and finish at least MOH:AW, and MGR:R so I can tack on TR and SC5.

We have a few things upcoming for you guys in the works, with the addition of NekkedSnake (aka Solid Cheese), our hits have grown exponentially, and we have to keep rolling with it.  To kick off, we will be launching our new “Top Lists” segment, starting with our Top 10 Ninja’s.  Yeah, there have been many similar lists that have been released in the past from other sites, but I assure you we will add our own spin to it.  We are also trying to get some video content out, but as you can see with the list of games up top, it will be hard to squeeze it in, seeing as I am not that experienced with video production as of yet.

But with all of that, it just makes it that much more exciting.  We hope our subscribers will enjoy it, and we hope that it will attract new ones as well. Please do not be shy on commenting, and letting us know if you like it or hate it.  It will only make us better in providing you with better content.

For now enjoy this video a classic Britney Spears video – Toxic

and, this odd cover from a Static Lullaby – The video is actually pretty good as well as the cover.

Fire Emblem: Awakening impressions

Finally been able to put about an hour into the game.  Yeah, it’s not a whole lot, but enough to tell you that the game is awesome.  It plays just like the old Fire Emblem games, but with updated graphics.  I do enjoy the anime cut scenes, looked great on 3-D also.  The one thing I do find a bit annoying is the partial voice overs.  Instead of full dialogues, characters either say a few words at a time, or just do some random grunts.  You get used to it after a while, but I wish they would’ve just not put any voices in, or at least left it for the cut scenes. Also, why don’t they have feet?

Anyway, the game is great, story is entertaining as of now, and the battle graphics are good looking.  Can’t do much on the over world map, so I won’t hold that against it.  More to follow shortly.

Nintendo 3DS Fire Emblem Awakening Edition Unboxing

I finally got my hands on the Nintendo 3DS Fire Emblem Awakening Edition.  It came out earlier this week, and the game itself is in short demand due to some shipping issues, at least according to the dude at Gamestop, and due to that game card shortage, fans of the game are snagging the system with the game pre-installed.  The system itself is in high demand, as it’s not even available on other retailers other than Gamestop.  Amazon is also selling it for $100.00 over retail, but it’s a Canadian store selling it, which probably explains the price.  I had to pick one up sooner rather than later as the stock is getting thin.

anyway, enjoy the video, and I will be following up with a half review to the game after I spend some time with it.
