Today I spent several hours in many different stores trying to find Rock Band or Rock Band 2 (complete kit) for my son’s 15th Birthday which is tomorrow. Can anyone tell me why no one has this game? This isnt a new release – its an older game and I know this because there is now a Rock Band 3 out. He didnt want the Third one he wanted the First or Second and I literally could not find it anywhere – Wal – Mart, Future Shop, Best Buy, Zellers, ect – no one has it. If anyone has any idea’s please share
We know almost everyone in the world is on Facebook but how many of us Tweet? I’ve been on Twitter for 2 years now and Im here to tell you – it’s not big in Canada. It was announced this week that Lady GaGa has broken a record by having the most followers, she has over 10,000,000 – more than Justin Bieber, who is second on the list with 9,676,467 and Barack Obama who has 8,025,827 and sits in third spot. Someone asked the other day – does it take away the specialness of the celebrities who tweet all the time compared to an air of mystery by those who keep their business more private? I think it does, we tend to know more than we need to know about our fav’s. We don’t need to know every move they make nor do most of us care. On the plus side – we can speak directly to our Idol’s and Favorite Celebrities and often times they will answer you back. From a promotional point of view – Twitter is the perfect outlet. You can tweet about your product or website and your followers can then Retweet it out to their followers and so on and so on. I have several accounts for several different websites and facebook pages – all in all I have over 5000 followers and use twitter to promote from most of them. Through sites like Twitter – we are able to voice our disagreements, frustrations and concerns about a particular topic or situation. There are so many Celebrities, Major Corporations and Politicians on twitter, if nothing else – it gives ordinary people a voice where we were never able to be heard before. What are your thoughts on Social Media?
(Game Zone) – Expectations for film-to-game adaptations are generally low. Though some have been winners, the majority of movie games are non-discrete shovelware that cash in on a preexisting license. I’ve played my fair share of movie-based games, and while no title will be as horrid an experience as Over the Hedge, I usually don’t hold out hope for these tie-ins. That’s why Thor: God of Thunder is such a surprising title. It’s not perfect, but it often has flashes of beat ‘em up brilliance. These flashes never evolve into anything more than just that, but they do come together to create a compelling package. The plot in Thor is fairly thin and the storytelling is predictably weak. The game takes place before the events of the movie and tells the story of how Thor must take down a massive beast that he freed in his rage. After the mighty protagonist realizes that he goofed, he must work with his father and his brother to stop the beast and its many minions. The story is delivered through motion comic stills and cutscenes. Though the art in the former is pretty cool, neither method tells the story very well. This results in a plot that you can’t help but disregard as you get further along in the game. But as mind-numbingly dull as the plot may be, the gameplay in Thor is reasonably competent. You basically run down long corridors and brawl against hordes of baddies, taking on mini-bosses and major enemies in the process. If this all sounds repetitive, it is. But like so many good beat ‘em ups before it, Thor’s constant button-mashing is coupled with satisfying combat mechanics. Tapping the A button on the Wii Remote makes for basic hammer strikes while swinging the controller sideways unleashes a strong attack. An upward swing tosses your foes into the air, where you can juggle them around, send them downward, and then strike them down. Everything is basic but functional. And although you can upgrade Thor and earn new moves, you’re likely to mash and swing your way through the entire game. Exclusive to the Wii version of Thor are a collection of neat aerial levels. Here the action is on-rails, and you simply guide Thor around the screen, avoiding enemy attacks and projectiles and launching your own offense from afar. These levels are nicely spread throughout the game, so you never get tired of them. Boss battles also make for a nice change of pace, and these are challenging and easily provide some of the best moments in the game. The only thing wrong with these sections is that there aren’t enough of them. The variety that boss battles bring to the game makes for some fun moments, but they’re so sparse that you’ll be left wanting more. The visual presentation in Thor fits nicely with the simple beat ‘em up mechanics. The game features a decent colorful aesthetic rather than going for realism. Given the title’s comic book…
(Game Pro) – Wizard101, the popular MMO based on wizardry and magic, is announcing a new expansion to their online world, with music composed by pop star Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. Wizard101 continues to be a strong property in the crowded MMO market by playing to their young demographic’s tastes, as evidence by the game’s headcount of 15 million users. Today, KingsIsle Entertainment has announced a new expansion to Wizard101 with “Wintertusk,” with features an all-new soundtrack composed by Nick Jonas. Wizard101 is the Jonas brother’s first video game project, as he’s recently branched out from his Disney roots into musicals and classical plays. Prior to the announcement, Wizard101 and KingsIsle hosted teasers and hints about the new mystery composer on their Facebook page, with thousands and thousands of fans’ guesses ranging from Justin Bieber to Taylor Swift to Justin Timberlake. From the official press release: “This was a first for me. I never produced or wrote music for a game or in this case, a whole world before. So I jumped at the chance to work with KingsIsle,” said Nick Jonas. “It was very cool to be part of a project that allowed me to help create the mood for Wintertusk and interact with an audience in an entirely new way.” “Nick Jonas is an extraordinary talent and it’s been an incredible experience to work with him over the last few months,” said Todd Coleman, vice president and creative director for Wizard101. “When you listen to the music for the new world of Wintertusk, it’s clear that Nick is an endlessly creative composer and producer with an amazing degree of versatility.”

It’s been seven days since Ubisoft began ramping up its teaser campaign for the fourth installment in its 28 million-unit-selling Assassin’s Creed franchise, and today came the payoff. This morning, the publisher officially announced Assassin’s Creed Revelations, saying the game will arrive for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC this November. Calling it “the final chapter of the Ezio trilogy,” Ubisoft said that Revelations will follow its Renaissance-era wetworks maestro, who was first introduced in Assassin’s Creed II. This time out, Ezio will visit the haunts of original Assassin’s Creed protagonist Altair, visiting such Middle East strongholds as the Ottoman Empire’s Constantinople. There, Ezio will once again take up arms against the Templar order. Continue…
