Harry Potter Lego

I am picking this up tomorrow and I will have to post my thoughts. The demo was fun and the game is way more involved than previous incarnations.

Sorry I haven't been posting but I took some time out to have a baby. Lily was born on June 23rd. *grins*

Xbox Slim and Mass Effect DLC

I am in the process of downloading the new Mass Effect 2 DLC "Overlord" and bouncing happily about it too. I can't wait to play it. I do know I'll get to use my Firewalker tank again. *squeal*

So I saw that Microsoft announced a new Xbox 360 Slim. Built in Wifi? It's about time. Sony and Nintendo had it from jump. The 250 GB HDD is impressive but if you have a 360 memory card you are out of luck. Not compatible. Same goes for the 360 external HDD.

I do find it amusing it has decided to go to the shiny black like the PS3. Sony: paving the way for console colors. The Wii is in black now too.

Okay off to play my DLC!

Rumors and Mass Effect movie thoughts

So rumor has it they are talking about putting mulitplayer into Mass Effect 3. Now why would they want to do that? It'll ruin the gaming experience that we all already love. It's perfect as a single player and I don't feel there is a need to compete against other players in a killing free-for-all. Honestly. It ruined Bioshock 2, completely. In fact, Bioshock 2 was a mediocre campaign to begin with, then they added on the boring and totally wasted multiplayer platform. Please Bioware, if you care at all, DO NOT ADD MULTIPLAYER! It is not chocolate, it does not make everything better. People aren't complaining about it not being there...let it go and fire the guy that thought of it.

The husband and I were sitting here last night debating, again, who should be in the Mass Effect movie. First off, you have to have Seth Green as Joker. He does the voice in the game and no one will be able to copy his comedic style and timing. You can't replace him. He IS Joker.

For Shepard, Nathan Fillion or Oded Fehr. Both would make respectable 'grizzled' captains.

Ashley? Well the husband says Rachel Weisz and I say Gina Torres. No one said Ashley has to be white and she's bad ass enough to play Ashley.

Kaiden has been tough since he comes across as young. Bradley Cooper was mentioned but I have a feeling Hollywood would want one of their newest pretty boys like Sam Worthington.

Tali should be played by the young lady that does her voice, Liz Sroka.

As for any of the other alien beings, you won't see them so it doesn't much matter though I am sure there is an alien for Adam Baldwin and Ron Perlman (Urdot Rex maybe?).

Saren will be a tough one. Might have to pull the old Darth Vader number and have one person do the voice and one play the actual character. The guy that does the actual voice would be great but he isn't the right build to actually play him physically.

Captain Anderson? Ron Glass or maybe even Laurence Fishburne.

Heee heee Go Activision!

So the Infinity Ward fiasco gets better! Activision handled the issue of the unpaid bonuses, they distributed the bonuses to the Infinity Ward employees that were still there. So basically, all those "leads" that thought they were going to move to EA and still get their bonuses, forfeited them and they underlings are grateful. I am of the mind that that is the best way to handle it. I am happy for those underlings!

Now to address the Halo issue. Fanboys! Pay Attention! Bungie is NOT making another Halo after Reach. I am sorry. Not happening. Go cry into your pillows and listen to Emo music. Just pick up the recent copy of Game Informer for yet more proof. Now that's not to say Microsoft won't try to make another one but Bungie is done. Do you really want to play a Halo made by Microsoft? Probably not. Grab those Doritos and Mountain Dew, walk into the closet and close the door...weep my friend, weep. Now quit talking about it.

Modern Warfare 2 map pack #2

So this gets released today. It is 3 new maps and 2 maps recycled from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Apparently, some people have it already though it isn't showing up on the XBL marketplace. I am already getting calls asking why isn't it showing up for download.

People, sometimes foreign servers get things first. Then there are the testers and employees that get it. It will be up today. Relax. I know, I know, it was up at 12:01am but seriously, patience won't kill you. Try this afternoon.

Valve Replaces Pre-E3 Portal 2 Reveal With "Surprise"

Valve Replaces Pre-E3 Portal 2 Reveal With "Surprise"

OOOOOO so I wonder what this could mean!? I sure hope it is what they people are thinking...Half Life 2: Episode 3! OMG that would be completely epic and I don't know how I would be able to contain my excitement.
