    Markatisu, bro, i just bought Medal of Honor Heroes 2. I havent opened it yet, but why does it say 4 wii remote on the back...

    I tought it was only a one player game with 32 online option...Is there a multi-player option in the game? Would make my purchase a lot more rewarding
    Yes it has 4 player but no split screen. It plays like the online game

    Got Ghost Squad today and it is awesome!! I cant wait for House of the Dead 2 & 3 and hopefully the Virtua Cop series.

    If I remember correctly its one screen with 4 pointers, I played the campaign and online modes more but did not get to try local multiplayer before I had to return it.

    Link's Crossbow Training is SOOO much fun! A Zelda-themed shooting game is just about the best idea ever.

    And now that a Nintendo system once again has a Zapper, we're that much closer to finally getting a new Duck Hunt. When that happens - and it ****** NEEDS to! - I will be a VERY happy boy.

    Everyone who owns a PS3...listen up!

    You guys NEED to buy Uncharted. This is THE game for the PS3. I've played about 9 hours worth of this game and it is beyond anything the PS3 has to offer thus far. If you guys like the puzzles in Zelda, game play mechanics from Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia, this is the game for you. The graphics, the sound, the game play, and the story -- this game has it ALL.

    If you guys haven't noticed, I am very picky with my games and I rarely boast about many games, let alone PS3 titles. I only own two games on the PS3 -- Heavenly Sword and Uncharted. Heavenly Sword is NOTHING compared to Uncharted...except may be the facial expressions.

    The magazines and gaming sites are rating this game either on par or below what it deserves. I'm about 75% in and if I had to rate what I played thus far, it would be a 9.7.

    I haven't been this excited about a game since Twilight Princess and I'll go out on a limb -- this game is BETTER than TP.

    Support this AAA title...Uncharted deserves all the sales it can muster.

    EDIT: Just beat the game. The last few chapters made me smile. Let's just say...it went Resident Evil on me....which was a pleasant surprise. BUY THIS GAME!

    I just picked up MoH2 yesterday and went straight to multiplayer. It's definitely fun and I had no idea what I was doing. Good stuff. I'll start the campaign mode soon so that I can adjust to optimum settings and improve my skills in the game.

    I also saw that Wii Play is 49.99 CDN at Zellers, which is now only 5 dollars more than a Wiimote by itself. I've held off getting a second controller, but now I think I will pick up Wii Play for that price.

    Not too crazy on how much I'm spending here though . . .

    Growing up happens in a heartbeat. One day you're in diapers; the next day you're gone... But the memories of childhood stay with you for the long haul. I remember a place... a town... a house like a lot of other houses... A yard like a lot of other yards... On a street like a lot of other streets. And the thing is... After all these years, I still look back with wonder...

    Once you learn the controls it makes online play that much more fun. Arcade is a nice side thing to do for quick play but the meat of that game is in the online because of how fast and smooth it runs. I told you guys the controls were excellent.

    I will have to try out Uncharted, I dont spend $59.99 easily but everyone is raving about it. From the sales though it might not do so hot (just like Ratchet and Clank has almost bombed unless sales REALLY picked up the last few weeks since the last NPD), this is just the start I hope for the PS3 to get back in it.

    I just wanted to say if you have the Wii Zapper then you HAVE to at least rent Ghost Squad, I thought playing it with the Wiimote was good but the Zapper makes it 100x better after calbration.

    People can ***** all they want about whether the Zapper constitutes as a light gun or not but I think they should have packed Ghost Squad in instead of Zelda because Sega deserves the $$$$ for bringing out a great game.

    Come on Sega now bring on Virtua Cop 1,2,3 (1 and 2 came out on the PS2 so it should be a quickie release), a remake of House of the Dead 1 (2 and 3 are being released in 2008), and maybe a new Dino Crisis shooter (Capcom are you listening?)

    VC update:

    WII-KLY UPDATE: THREE NEW CLASSIC GAMES ADDED TO WII SHOP CHANNEL

    Nov. 26, 2007

    Let's hope you all survived the long holiday weekend. With all the eating, traveling and family fun, isn't it time to do something just for you? So take a few minutes and do a little shopping from the comfort of your couch, away from the chaos of the malls. This week you can get into a game of hoops, do a little faux gambling or head out to sea with your favorite dolphin friend.

    Three new classic games go live at 9 a.m. Pacific time. Nintendo adds new games to the Wii™ Shop Channel every Monday. Wii owners with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points™ to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail outlets. This week's new games are:

    DOUBLE DRIBBLE™ (NES®, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): DOUBLE DRIBBLE, the first 5-on-5, full-court home basketball game, is pure hoops action at its finest. While still a surprisingly accurate basketball game for its time, the frantic action keeps you on your toes as your players run from one end of the court to the other. Choose from a handful of teams and multiple levels of difficulty as you take on the computer alone or challenge a friend and see who has the better skills. Take the ball and sink shots from locations all over the court, or get in your opponent's face and do your best to block the shot. Better yet, drive the lane and rock the rim to see one of the game's trademark slam-dunk cut scenes. He shoots, he scores!

    Vegas Stakes™ (Super NES®, 1-4 players, rated E for Everyone – Simulated Gambling, 800 Wii Points): Feel like taking a road trip to Las Vegas? Let your inner high roller go wild as you try your luck at five different games-blackjack, slots, poker, craps and roulette. Start with only $1,000 in your pocket and play your way through five casinos, each with a different theme and varying limits. But no one wants to gamble alone, right? Not a problem, as you'll be able to choose one of four friends to tag along and offer advice when you need it. Further enhancing the experience is the fact that you'll be presented with a slew of interactions with random casino patrons. Best be careful, though-your choices in these situations could either get you closer to the millions of dollars you're after or cost you a pile of that hard-earned cash. Roll the dice, spin the wheel, hit or stand-do whatever it takes to stake your claim in Vegas and beat the house!

    Ecco Jr.™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): The aquatic adventures of Ecco come to life for a younger generation of gamers. Perfect for kids, Ecco Jr. finds our young hero heading out to sea with a variety of tasks he must perform in order to get there. Along with his friends Tara the baby orca and Kitnee the young Atlantic dolphin, Ecco Jr. will interact with sea lions, sea horses and other aquatic life as he makes his journey to the Big Blue. Introduce your kids to the classic series of Ecco the Dolphin titles by downloading Ecco Jr. today.

    For more information about Wii, please visit wii.com.
    Double Dribble is a definite purchase for me!
    This space for rent, apparently.....

    You'll love it markatisu. It's easily worth the $59.99 even though it's only about 10 hours in length. Definitely a worthy purchase for the PS3. It's my GOTY for the PS3.

    got a question for ps3 owners. I was thinking of hooking up my composite cables and my hdmi cable at the same time and then switching from one to another to see the difference. That wont have any ill effects on my tv or ps3 will it?

    Halo 3 Legendary Edition $59.99 @ Amazon

    Just a heads up that Amazon is clearing out their stock of Halo 3: Legendary Edition for $59.99. This was originally priced at $130. A great deal for all the extras considering the game itself is $60

    Saw it earlier today at another site. All tho it's an interesting teaser, and the music always does it for me, but I'm still not sure this is worth celebrating...

    Because the second game was just a complete failure, both when it comes to sales and quality. Comepletely inferior in just about every way to the first one. One of the reasons why the property has been in limbo for so long.

    So, do we know who's doing the game this time? And would they approach it differently in any way? Also, is the original creator more heavily involved this time? One of the reasons that have been stated why DEX2 weren't so good was that the creator was less involved that time around.

    Well its about time, the Wii gets its first full fledged RPG (hopefully not the last)

    Fragile by Namco (the team that made Eternal Sonata and collaborated on Baten Kaitos and Baten Kaitos Origins), reminds me of Silent Hill meets JRPG

    The trailer can be seen here
