I'm As Shocked As You Are

Apparently they decided to make a sequel to Earth Defense Force 2017. This one seems to have a bit more money backing it than the original budget game, but as it isn't out yet time will tell. I'm probably the only person actually anticipating Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon.

UbiSoft Never Learned

The Ace Combat games, despite being awesome, are constantly on the verge of being killed by Bandai/Namco for not being profitable enough. Once again, Cooked Auto has given us a completely valid reason to support the Ace Combat franchise: it isn't HAWX.

Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny

I'm starting to wonder of Ben Croshaw isn't somehow my subconscious id that escaped and got a job as a gaming journalist.

Someone over at The Escapist thought it was a good idea to have a weekly debate between Ben Croshaw (Zero Punctuation), James Portnow (Extra Credits), and Bob Chipman (GameOverthinker, MovieBob, The Big Picture). This week's debate is about the state of console gaming. In the first round, just about everyone was agreeing with everyone else. In response to this, Yahtzee decided to show his origins as a Something Awful goon and decided to call motion controls a dying gimmick just to piss people off. The long and short of it is that you have a troll, a half-troll/half-fanatic, and a mediator all trying to have a debate. I do enjoy Yahtzee's work.
