Major changes in the works for MG

•April 12, 2010 • Leave a Comment

So it’s been a long time since the last update. With college graduation and life getting in the way, Karen and I have had to put this blog on the backburner.

That’s not to say, however, that MG is done. There are talks of major overhauls and details will come soon enough.

Modern Warfare 2 fans get mixed bag of news

•October 17, 2009 • 2 Comments


Chomping at the bit to play Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on PC? Infinity Ward Creative Strategist Robert Bowling divulged a little bit of good and bad news concerning the game’s multiplayer. In a twitter update earlier today, Bowling reported that gamers wouldn’t have to wait to play it, as well as other bits of information.

“No delay on PC for Modern Warfare 2. You’ll also have Prestige Mode in PC as well as lots of Steam support. Hopefully min specs will be soon.”

However, that wasn’t all Bowling had to say today about the game. Hit the jump for what he had to say about its multiplayer and matchmaking elements. Continue reading ‘Modern Warfare 2 fans get mixed bag of news’

Left4Dead 2 coming to PS3? [Update]

•June 20, 2009 • Leave a Comment


The above screenshot isn’t a fake. That’s PS3 boxart for the unnecessarily controversial sequel to Left4Dead.

Message boards came alive today as some eagle-eyed users found the listing on EA’s official website. While we’re normally skeptical about things like this (see recent ESRB ratings for Earthbound), it makes one wonder if something like this really is on the way.

So what do you say, PS3 owners? Are you ready for some zombie apocalypse in the deep south?

Update: Looks like it’s been taken off of the website.

Reactions from Sony E3 ‘09 Press Conference

•June 2, 2009 • 2 Comments


To say that 2008 and the beginning of 2009 has been something of a rough time for Sony could be considered an understatement. Sony as a corporation posted its first revenue loss in 14 years and the Playstation 3, as well as the PSP, has been taking a beating from their competitors in the 360, Wii and DS.

This year, however, Sony hopes to remedy their woes with a slew of new titles and announcements at this year’s E3. Hit the jump to see how we think they did.

Reactions from Nintendo E3 ‘09 Press Conference

•June 2, 2009 • 2 Comments


While it was hard to go after the buzz that Microsoft generated, Nintendo held its own, albeit barely. By sticking to their award-winning family-oriented games that have held the top spot in the Nintendo franchise, they definitely played it safe.

Even though Microsoft used celebrities, Nintendo stuck with their own–namely Mario, Zelda and the surprise ending with Samus in the new Metroid. They introduced a few new things, such as the Wii Vitality Sensor and Wii Motion Plus. Check out our review of all things Nintendo after the jump.

Reactions from Microsoft E3 ’09 Press Conference

•June 1, 2009 • Leave a Comment

This morning, I woke up not really expecting much from Microsoft this E3. Sure, they’d had a good year against their rival Sony, but Nintendo was dominating the market. It was pretty easy to tell that this conference was going to be less about their strategy against the PS3 and more so against the Wii.

Now that the dust has settled and the E3 Expo is now in full swing, it’s time for us here at MG to look at what Microsoft showed. Hit the break for what we liked, what we didn’t like and what we were blown away by. Continue reading ‘Reactions from Microsoft E3 ’09 Press Conference’

E3 ’09: Project Natal & “Milo” in Motion

I know there has been a lot of talk about Microsoft’s new Project Natal all over the web but to fully understand this, you have to see it in action.

Hit the jump for the footage of Peter Molyneux and the A.I. known as “Milo”, possibly one the craziest moment of the day so far. Sorry in advance for the low quality. Continue reading ‘E3 ’09: Project Natal & “Milo” in Motion’
