Monday news opinions

This might be the last for a few days depending on what happens while the room in which my computer is in is being worked on, I guess we'll see.

Having a talk with Deckard Cain: It's good they are using the same voice actor, even if I always thought he kind of sucked, he's a staple of the Diablo series.

Peter Moore mourns that system called the Dreamcast: Well, I guess it was just SEGA's time. Let's just hope they decide to get back into the console business someday.

Wii update brings us, (as in 'not me') Strong Bad episode 2:
It's kind of funny, the game I want most for the Wii is a multiplatform game, which is also on PC, and I also don't have a PC.

How to unlock all the Rock Band 2 songs the easy way:
Hurray for cheats!

DC Writer, Geoff Johns to provide backstory for DC Universe Online: Well, as long as it turns out alright.

WipEout HD dated for September 25th: Sooner then I would have thought, good job Sony.

Hands-On Mirror's Edge: Sounds interesting, I would like to get my hands on it.

Burnout Paradise bikes in action: These guys are the king of downloadable content. Hurray for Criterion!

Home video walkthrough: A video that shows all the features of Home? I think I will just wait on it.

Sonic Unleashed trailer lacks very much 2D. Be worried: Ah, Ah, Ah, bad SEGA, I would have thought you realized that people are getting excited for Sonic Unleashed not because of the werehog segments, but due to the 2D segments.

Eye of Judgment set 3 coming soon: I still need to buy this game, it looks great.

PSN cards now available at blockbuster: Good one, now when will they be available at gamestop?

Saint's Row has zombie mini game: Sounds like the Zombie mode in the failed 'Gangs of London'

Would you buy an Apple gaming console?: Yes.

UK finds that knives are easily accessible for purchase by kids... and so are violent video games: I still don't understand why people make a big deal about kids getting violent video games, then don't care when the same kid goes and purchases Sin City, the Saw, or ay R rated movie, no one cares...

First Need for Speed Undercover gameplay: So, EA finally let the Need for Speed team do their things and take their time, let's hope they come up with a game more like the 90s games. (You know, everything pre-underground)

Why people didn't like The Clone Wars: I can agree with this, though I think it's also due to the fact that... it sucked.

The Getaway helps Taxi drivers find their way around: Uh, okay, the driving isn't very realistic though.

Okay, right then.

Confirmed: Infinity Ward to make Call of Duty 6 in 2009: Eh, doesn't effect me.

1. Everything. 2. Everything. 3. Everything. Should I keep going?

Spore is being played for millions of minutes a day: Not surprising, so is Halo and many other games.

Sony unaware of slow download speeds: Well, I have a PS3 and 360 hooked up to the same network and the 360 downloads slower, so I dunno..

I thought we were over this: Muslim Massacre back online: Can this just be over with?

Seven new Resistance 2 screenshots: November can't come soon enough.

Better then Blu-Ray disk coming from Sim2: Good luck on getting all the studios on board after that long battle with HD-DVD.

Gamer forced to change "The Gooch" gamertag: I don't mind crude gamertags being forced to change, but something like this? Whaaat?

Blend games: Resistance 2 vs Gears of War 2: personally, I think Gears 2 will have more production values, but Resistance 2 will beat it in content.

Video gaming has been growing by 10% each year, this time is was %9, and people panic: Eh, whatever.

No Trophies = No buy: I dunno if that's quite the way to look at it... More, that people will see it has trophies, and they will want to buy it more, I wouldn't NOT buy Metal Gear Solid 4 because it doesn't have trophies.

LittleBigPlanet, what could go wrong?: A lot of things, but it doesn't mean they WILL.

Crash of the gaming industry, will it happen again?: Maybe on the PC, but I don't think it will happen in the same way it did before on the consoles.

Fallout 3, prepared to be blown away: I'm already prepared.

Attention Gamestop, those fanboys you hired are costing you:
Take notice.

EA responds to Spore DRM criticism: No apology? Fail.

LEAK: Halo Wars brute chieftain image: Fail, why are the flood, Brutes, and tons of Spartans in a prequel to Halo? That completely screws up the timeline...
