BLOG – Where Have All the XBLA Games Gone? – PART 2, Doom Returns!

A while back, I wrote about missing XBLA games.  While I neglected to mention another Midway Games game, Paperboy, I left out the original Doom as I thought that was more common knowledge.  But thanks to the fine people at Bethesda, gamers can now play through the original trip through hell via the Xbox 360. …

BLOG – Cheapest Game Evar!

I am no stranger on finding cheap games. Sales, reward clubs, daily deals, clearance bins, coupons, specials… I make it my point to constantly scout for cheap games. Some might call this being cheap. But like Locke, I prefer the term “treasure hunter.” Now I have found cheap games before (see previous blog entries). However, …

BLOG – 6 New 3DS Games for $30!

For whatever reason, Bestbuy was selling 3DS games for $5 yesterday (12-22-11).  Call it a crazy one day sale.  Or even a typo.  But whatever the case was, they were selling Pilotwings Resort, Steel Diver, and Nintendogs + Cats French Bulldog version and Toy Poddle version for $5 each.  And just to be clear, these …

BLOG – Gamestop’s GC Game Sale

On Thursday December 15. 2011 Gamestop had a special holiday sale for Power Up Rewards members – 50% off Gamecube games.  This sale was just one of the daily specials they have going on this holiday season. I was probably one of the few to be excited about this promotion as it was my chance …

BLOG – Where Have All the XBLA Games Gone?

I love the XBLA.  For a fraction of the price of a retail game, Arcade titles can offer just as much entertainment, if not even more so, than games sold at your local store.  In fact, developers are willing to take more risks in this market and the result is more unique games. While I …

BLOG – Pre 2011 Black Friday Deals Found

Like all Americans, I am excited about Black Friday and scoring some sweet deals. However, Xmas came early for me this year as I found some sweet clearance deals at my local Target today. I doubt most gamers would get excited about finding Konami’s New International Track & Field on DS for $4.48, but hey, …

BLOG – Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Midnight Launch

November 8th, 2011.  A day that will live forever in video game history. Why? Because a highly anticipated game based around everything from guns, items, war, stealth, story, and action was released for the first time in all HD glory. Promising hours of nothing but the highest entertainment value, who needs a modern war when …

BLOG – Alan Wake Can’t Write

Alan Wake.  Whether you like it or not, this game deserves more recognition than it received.  Given the long development cycle and 360 exclusivity, Alan Wake isn’t the best game ever made but it certainly is not a bad game.  I enjoyed playing through to the end even though the ending was complete garbage. In …

BLOG – Game Deal, Sears

One of the local Sears stores has had the same game “clearance” bin for about two years now.  I put the word “clearance” in quotes because it isn’t even clearance priced; everything is still normal price just labeled with a pink sticker to make it look like you are getting a better deal.  And because …
