Halo Reach: Why haven't you bought this yet?

First, let me say its good to be back.  After all of this Harry Potter craziness I just wanted to take a little break and make it easy for the HP fans coming in from all over the universe to find the answers they were looking for.  But I can remain silent no longer.  If you are still looking for Harry Potter stuff, you can find it below this post and in the archives on the right bar of the blog.

That being said, if you have not purchased Halo Reach yet, I give you permission to stop reading my review and go purchase it now.  It is that good.  But if you already have a copy or are dead set on waiting to hear what I have to say before purchasing it, then I am flattered and here comes the review.

Extremely Early Review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!


Hey guys,

This is not videogame related, but I got a chance to be a part of the first audience to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in a movie theater, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on it here in the blog. Read after the jump, but be warned, I spoil pretty much everything there is to spoil.

UPDATE 8/24/2010. Welcome to all the new visitors. I hope you enjoy the review, and maybe stick around the blog a little bit longer! As much as I wrote on this review, I know I left some things out that people really want to know, so if you have a burning question that is not answered, send it over at and I'll post a followup on the blog.

UPDATE 2: If you navigated directly to this page, check out our main page, because I just posted the first set of questions that got sent to me. Thanks!

UPDATE 3: Second set of questions posted!

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, or Vampires Were Cool Before Stephenie Meyer

Jacked from Console-Arcade, but it's not like they sourced their image.
Castlevania was never one of the franchises I got into as a kid; the first time I tried one of the games was on the ZSNES emulator. Super Castlevania IV had that classic-platformer feel, but was too arcade-like in terms of its mechanics. I put the franchise on the shelf for a few years.

It just feels like it belongs in an arcade with the score and the timer. Source - my compy.

Thanks to the X-bawkz Live Arcade, I’ve had the opportunity to dust off the Castlevania saga with Konami’s new release, Harmony of Despair. At its heart, the game is a platformer with an RPG-style item/stats system, in which you scramble through massive 2D levels to destroy Dracula and his minions, either on your own or with friends over Live. HD allows players the choice of six characters collected from the chronicles of Castlevania lore, each replete with his or her own attacks and strategies. Playtime stacks up to be a bit short at only 6 chapters, with exploration of each limited to only 30 minutes.

But wait. There’s more.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Don’t read this go buy it now!

The original Super Mario Galaxy raised the bar for 3D platformers with its innovative level design, creative puzzles, and great graphics. With Super Mario Galaxy 2, Nintendo managed to distill everything that made that game enjoyable and created the best 3D platformer ever and one of their best games ever.
