Resident Evil 6 Announced!

Hey guys, just thought I'd share this news in case you haven't heard yet.  Resident Evil 6 has been announced, with a release date of November 20th.  Capcom has even released an official trailer, and I have to say that I'm really excited, because the series looks to be returning to its roots with actual zombies (but it looks like the parasites from RE4 and RE5 will still put in an appearance).  Enjoy!

Annoying Gaming Sidekicks: Round 2

A while back I wrote a blog entry about some of the irritating game characters who are sidekicks to the main protagonist.  We've all experienced the pain of adventuring alongside one of these characters, who annoy us with their constant whining, excessive neediness, or any other rage-inducing personality traits.  Today I thought I'd throw a few more annoying characters out there, so we can all reminisce about the times we wished we could toss our faithful sidekicks off a cliff.

LittleBigPlanet: A World of Dreams, or Nightmares?

Happy New Year everyone!  Sorry for the bit of a hiatus, I ended up getting a bit lazy around Christmas-time, I didn't even write the "Merry Christmas" post I was planning, which was going to include this video for all my fellow Team Fortress 2 players:

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Years!  Now I figure it's time I get back to a semi-regular posting schedule.  Today I wanted to talk about LittleBigPlanet, a game which I have been playing quite a bit lately.  The opening narration states that the world of LittleBigPlanet is composed of the dreams of countless players, but I feel that it is composed of something more dark and disturbing than a simple happy dream.  Looking at some aspects of this game, it appears to be more along the lines of hallucinations of an asylum full of deranged lunatics.
