Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories

I just got this game in the mail from Gamefly yesterday and so far I am pretty impressed. The game takes place in Liberty City in 1998. You play as Toni from GTA3 in this game. The graphics are very close to the Playstation 2 GTA games and look very good on the PSP. The gameplay is pretty much the same as the console versions as well. The o nly thing that took a little getting used to was driving around with the small PSP analog stick/nub. Any fans of the GTA games that own a PSP should check this one out.

Karaoke Revolution Party Demo

The demo of Karaoke Revolution Party is included on the demo disc in issue #99 of The Official US Playstation Magazine. The demo is awesome. You get two songs, Play That Funky Music and Crazy In Love and you also get to use the Sing and Dance mode. This lets you sing into a USB microphone and dance on a DDR pad. when playing in this mode you get to set the difficulty for singing and for dancing. This is nice if you are a good singer but a lousy dancer. You can set a high difficulty for the singing portion and an easy difficulty for the dancing. Also the graphics look a little sharper in this version. They had more time to work on this version since the last Karaoke Revolution game came out last November. They had put out three Karaoke Revolution games in the course of a year between 2003 and 2004. I'm sure the extra development time paid off to add some new features like the Sing and Dance mode. I am really looking forward to this. Looks like Harmonix has another hit on their hands. Also Guitar Hero comes out the same month as Karaoke Revolution Party. Music game fans should be very happy this holiday season. And here is a pic of me playing Karaoke Revolution Party with the Sing and Dance mode. You can't see the DDR pad but the bottom row on the screen is where the dance steps appear.

Serious Sam 2

I rented this one for the Xbox and it was very good. There is not a whole lot of depth to the Serious Sam games but that is what made them fun. The games just have you blasting enemy after enemy and to me that is what made first person shooters fun to begin with back in the days of Wolfenstein 3D and Doom. Serious Sam 2 is a very fun game for people who don't want to think a lot in a first person shooter. It is all about the non-stop action. I played some online co-op on Xbox Live and it was very fun. This game is definitely worth a play.

Tina Wood Touched My Monkey!

A few weeks ago on Attack of The Show one of my chat room questions was answered. They were giving away Everquest 2-Desert of Flames stuff. Since I don't play Everquest 2 I asked for the stuffed monkey and a couple days ago I got it in the mail. The cool thing was Tina Wood was holding the monkey. :) Here are some pictures:


This picture was taken off of my TV so the quality is pretty bad.

















Here is a picture of the monkey safely in my possession :) :

Nothing New

This week has been pretty slow. There has been nothing really new. Hopefully soon I'll get my hands on Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow and Trauma Center for the DS. As soon as I get those I'll post my thoughts here.

Rest In Peace Drunk Vader

Yesterday on Attack of The Show during the MMOregon Trail segment Drunk Vader passed away while traveling the trail with Kevin. Now Kevin has to complete the journey on his own. Show your support for Drunk Vader and visit this memorial I made in his memory.

Lodger

I finally was able to pick up Lodger's album "Hi-Fi High Lights Down Low" which I have been enjoying. I first heard of them a couple years ago through a couple Flash animation music videos of their songs "Doorsteps" and "I Love Death." Check out their site here.
