August 2011

Has the man who brought us such jaw-dropping titles as No More Heroes, Killer7 and Shadows of the Damned finally topped himself? After seeing the trailer for the upcoming title Lollipop Chainsaw the answer is very obvious!

Since I've been poor recently, my friend and I have plunged down to Free-To-Play Lane (with the occasional beta testing). My friend pulled me into a game called Mythos, which failed to gain any leeway due to the company flagship going bankrupt and being sold to a company HanbitSoft. They remade Mythos, changed their business model and released it free-to-play in Europe. (The other title, Hellgate, is already out in Korea and Japan.) Since Mythos is in English and easily accessible for Americans, I decided to give it a go.

Sega Rally Championship was one of those titles that made gamers charge towards it in the arcades. Its realistic driving and great graphics (for its time, of course) helped to put Sega on top of the racing gaming world. However as years progressed, and more top-geared racers have been made by the likes of Codemasters and even Disney, the days of Sega Rally seemed to be just a thing of past remembrance. When Sega announced that it would be releasing the third entry in the Sega Rally series, dubbed Sega Rally Online Arcade, I was ecstatic. Sadly that excitement quickly turned into disappointment as soon as I pressed start.

From the trailer that shook the world to going hands-on with it at E3 everything about Dead Island has excited me to the core. Now the folks at Techland and Deep Silver have revealed what happens when you and a couple friends get into the zombie-killing melee.

Last week video games dominated the show; this week Anvil and Mr. Cuse get to hog up the Podcast with their sports talk!

Fear not gamers, for this is not a video game based on the hair metal Broadway musical. Instead Atlus and ACE Team's Rock of Ages is a game whose concept can be explained in its title alone. At E3 I had the chance to go hands-on with the title, leaving me with my funny bone tickled and a much heavier anticipation for the game's release.

What's better than have the Issues Program dudes show up to talk about the first half-year in gaming? How about having pro gamer, reviewer and model Raychul Moore joining the roundtable?
