As big a gamer as I am, I have to admit that the Dance Dance Revolution games are not for me. I’d be lucky to not fail out of the easiest one player game. However, I have found a guy who these games are for. This dude is amazing. He takes on a two player game all by himself and absolutely kills it. Now I don’t know if there is a Dance Dance Revolution championship tournament out there (there probably is), but if this guy doesn’t win it, I don’t know if I want to see the person who does.
The first DLC for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released today for all Xbox 360 owners (PC and PS3 players have to wait a little longer). It’s called Dawnguard and it costs 1600 Microsoft points ($19.99). I bought it and played for a couple hours. While I have yet to even touch the storyline, which from what I understand is about vampires, I did get to try out some of the general game additions it made, and they are pretty sweet.
Combat from horseback feels pretty fluid, and the addition of the werewolf perk tree is welcome. Maybe now I’ll get some use out of being a werewolf. I pretty much ignored it after trying it out a couple times during my time playing the original content. While you were already able to make armor out of dragon bone, you are now able to make weapons out of it, too. Also, you can now make your own arrows at a forge. This has already come in very handy. While I’m sure there is still plenty of new things to see and do, this is about all I’ve had time for so far. Rest assured, I’ll be putting in plenty more hours before all is said and done.
If you haven’t made up your mind about this DLC or even the game itself, I couldn’t recommend it more. If you’re going to pay an arm and a leg for a game, you want to get your money’s worth out of it. You most certainly do with Skyrim and then some. Sure, it’s a little buggy but a lot of that has been cleaned up with patches since it’s release. As far as Dawnguard goes, I’ve yet to run into any major bugs, but it’s a safe bet to assume that there will at least be a few minor ones.
Trailer after the jump!
Well, nothing’s really grabbed my attention this week so I’ve gotta use an older video to get this post done before Tuesday is over.
Here we have a cute kitty “playing” Duck Hunt. I like how it tries to get the dog at the beginning too. Anybody who’s ever played this game knows what a humungous douchebag that dog is.
I don’t know what the hell this is. I mean, it might be a commercial for Rock Band. It might be a commercial for bad parenting. It might be NSFW but I can’t really tell. And I can’t understand how someone can be THAT naked and yet not show anything.
While playing the drums.
My hypothesis: naked hippie girl breaks into house and makes young boys watch her play Rock Band. At least I hope that’s what happened. I would hate to think it is their mom. Step mom, maybe?
Yeah…. Step mom works out just fine. Ridiculous video after the jump.
It’s about damn time for that, you know? How much was that damn thing before? Now, they lowered it to $299.
Sony Corp. (SNE) effectively cut the price of its PlayStation 3 by $100 on Tuesday, a move the consumer-electronics giant hopes will juice demand for the next-generation gaming console, which has undersold its rivals since its launch nearly two years ago.
Sony announced that its PlayStation 3 will come in a new slim form factor, cost $299, and will be available at retail stores in about two weeks. The price is down from $399 for the current model.
Maybe this will stop the PlayStation 2 from kicking its ass in sales?
