Confirmed: BioShock is dope (Joystiq)

Jun 22nd 2007 5:31PM Boy, am I glad I got a x360.
My lineup consists of Eternal Sonata, Assasin's Creed, GTA IV, Bioshock, and some Halo 3. It's a good year to own a 360 certainly...

Sony launches Playstation Home site for beta interest (Joystiq)

Mar 9th 2007 12:31AM I like to see this as an attempt to make a next-gen-ish mii concept. I have seen many people displeased with the comic style the miis convey, so this might be good news for them.
I personally own a 360 and dont plan to own the PS3, but you have to admit they are TRYING to improve, no sense at all reducing to fanboy banter...

Game designer turns geek mafia (Joystiq)

Jan 9th 2007 9:31AM They mentioned this book in BoingBoing over the last month.
And of course, you can always download this book for free from the official page, if you are itching so much to give it a read before buying.

Xbox Live says Halo motto is "inappropriate" (Joystiq)

Dec 20th 2006 12:37PM I think they don't want to get into a religious territory...
Halo as in angels.
What's my source? I tried to use as my motto "Deus Ex Machina" (God From the Machine) and it turned on the filter. Ex Machina works fine.

PS3 launching at $974 in Mexico (Joystiq)

Dec 15th 2006 11:20AM At least is there officially.
In Colombia, Sony has pulled out the gaming division, stating that the software piracy was way too rampant to even compete against it.
The wii is selling for about $512, x360 premium for $608 and the PS3, imported of course, for $1173
So, yeah, there you have it. New-gen gaming is not for the third world it seems...

Mario ringtone marks over two years on charts. Who knew? (Joystiq)

Dec 7th 2006 11:13PM Chocobo theme.
I just downloaded a midi and loaded it to my cell with a data cable. Why overpay for something so simple?

How to fix your iTunes artwork (Download Squad)

Nov 30th 2006 8:26PM @3: You might want to try musicBrainz. It will go through your files and correct tags with help of their server. Of course, it requires you checking if every album is ok, but it does the job.

A Gamer's Manifesto (Joystiq)

Nov 24th 2006 9:08PM well, there's something we can do as gamers: STOP BUYING CRAP GAMES!

Don't buy the newest Madden, refuse the latest Tony Hawk, demand something new.
Thats something, as for the rest, I guess we should wait for this manifesto to make its rounds around the developer communitty and try to expect some changes...
