You can all breathe a sigh of relief as Ninja Gaiden will ship on March 2nd so you can expect it on store shelves late that night or early on the 3rd.

Irony is a cruel mistress

I find it humorous that the very day after Pickle discusses how much the PS2 sucks, Sony announces two games which have captivated my attention and are available only on the PS2. Sure I think the PS2 has some serious design flaws and is about as fragile as they come, but I put those things aside when I play Jak & Daxter or Ratchet & Clank as they are two of the most refined series of games that I have ever played and I will continue to play them on that little black box with its 2 controller ports, missing harddrive, and add on broadband adapter.

Jak3 and RC3 this Fall

February 24, 2004

Sony announced today that the Jak and Daxter and Ratchet & Clank series will return to the PlayStation 2 this Fall. I am really not sure what more they can add to these games, but I welcome them with open arms.

“We are delighted to continue our relationship with two of the most talented and imaginative development teams in the industry,” said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. “Consumers want more from traditional platform games and Naughty Dog and Insomniac Games have made strides to implement technology innovation in order to raise the industry standard and invigorate the genre. The upcoming sequels will continue to push the boundaries as both teams incorporate revolutionary gameplay elements.”

“Both Insomniac Games and Naughty Dog continue to push the envelope with each game that they bring to the market,” said Andy Reiner, Executive Editor of Game Informer, the world’s largest multi-platform gaming magazine on the market today. “The level of craftsmanship that goes into each project truly is remarkable. I can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeves this time!”

Oh yeah I also got alot of heat for my Ninja Gaiden remarks. Look all I am saying is its not a Ninja type of game. I didn’t say the game would suck. Hell I might even pick it up. But dammit, give me real Ninjas!

Cha ching and HEEYA!

Live from San Marcos its Pic. This weekend came and went, with it many political conversations and yelling at the bucket holder. Again we got together for some FF CC and margaritas, you know, good times. One thing I noticed this week was the constant PS2 bashing, not only from us but this time from YOU guys out there. I saw a guy turn in his PS2 at the EB store we always hang out at, and another guy who told his woes about how his PS2 don’t work anymore. This of course led to long conversations about how much that console really does suck. My opinon? Well if I still had mine I would take it out back and shoot it.
