Mass Effect 3 Demo Review

: Reviews : Dan M. :

The Mass Effect series has a special place in modern gamers' hearts.  It's expertly written saga spanning story, tight combat mechanics and stellar presentation across it's first two entries have garnered massive praise and numerous industry awards.  Despite this pristine reputation, my relationship with the serious has been been quite tumultuous over the past four years.  When the first entry hit store shelves in the fall of 2007 I was on an extremely tight budget and was already tapped out having just purchased my XBOX 360.  Halo 3's siren call was enough to lure me away from me grabbing a limited edition copy of Mass Effect at launch(which I'm still kicking myself over it's current ridiculous high price tag)and wait for the inevitable price drops in the off-season.  When I finally did make the plunge in the spring of 2008, I was hooked.

Battlefield 3: Global Conflict

Battlefield 3 which has been known for it's wide open maps and destructibility of their maps has one of the biggest communities of modders and hardcore fans bases in PC gaming.  A group of Battlefield 3 enthusiasts have created the "Global Conflict" Tournament Community.  Well actually it's been around since Battlefield 1942 but just recently began drafting for Battlefield 3.  For those of you who want to make your Battlefield experience mean even more then I would highly suggest checking this one out.  "It's like playing Risk, where every dice roll is a round of BF3."

Sony's in the Sh*ter, LBP goes Karting, and Vita soon hits US shores.

Sony has been making the news this past week across the interwebs.  The Multimedia powerhouse and the US government now have something more in common than just having most of it's work force and products coming from China and Taiwan.  While the company has had a revenue approaching near the 90 billion dollar mark in 2011and employs nearly 170,000 people the company just posted a nearly $2 billion loss last quarter.  Which in the economic world means that the lovely folks over at S&P (Standard & Poor) credit agency have decided to lower Sony's overall credit rating from A- to BBB+.   "The outlook on the long-term corporate rating is negative." said S&P  "... We see no meaningful signs of fiscal recovery within the the next six to twelve months."

Welcome Dan!!

What's up everybody?!!  I want to take a moment and welcome our newest and last team member to Zero Pwnage, Dan.

I work with Dan at the mighty Costco and his love of games shows every time we speak on the subject and I thought he would make a worthy addition here.  So I want all of you to take a moment and show Dan a little love by reading his first article below.

As a huge fan and supporter of Nintendo, Dan takes a look at what the Wii did(and more importantly didn't)do.


The Colossal Failure of the Wii & How It Will Fix the Wii U

: Rants & Raves : Dan M. :

November 19, 2006.  I woke up early, grabbed my fiancee and bolted out to my hooptie of an automobile.  I was slovenly, starving and shivering but who the hell cared, the day was FINALLY here!  The day that would give me my reward for months of frugality and ramen noodles and ghastly Bar-S hot dogs, the day that would justify throwing half of my waking hours away to the stanky depths of retail, the day that would change video games forever and catapult my brain into digital nirvana: the launch of the Nintendo Wii.
