Hey Got Gamers!

Normally, I like to start off these show blogs with something witty, but this week I feel the need to start things off with a trailer for Ubisoft’s We Dare. It’s a 90 second moving picture that is worth a 1000 words, but don’t be surprised if most of those words are “WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?!” over and over again. You will see what I mean if you watch it.

Anyhow, as you can imagine we spent some time chatting about We Dare during this week’s show, and you can hear all of our thoughts on this “interesting” game in the podcast that is located below this sentence.

However, we spoke about more than just We Dare. This week on Got Game we also discussed:

However, we should mention that since taping last week’s show, Activison representatives have called out that possible new Call of Duty game, and its site with the countdown clock, as being a hoax. Normally when publishers aren’t prepared to talk about things, we in the gaming press get non-committal phrases that could be taken many ways. This time Activision just said that they’re in no way involved with the countdown website located at www.findmakarov.com.

In the second segment of this show, Zack Cooper makes a quick return. This week he joined us just long enough to talk with Brian Hayes, the lead designer for EA’s Fight Night Champion, about the first ever M rated sports game to come out of a EA Sports studio.

    I really don’t understand Bryan review of Killzone 3. He says it suffers from pacing issues, glitches that were problematic. Too many cutscenes as well which don’t help the story of the single player. He mentions muiltiplayer which is very similar to Killzone 2. Yet he gives game 9.5.

    Bryan also reviewed Mass Effect 2 giving it the infamous 9.9 mention problems like load screens, frame rate issues. A technical problems but felt the story is compelling and warranted a review of 9.9.

    Now the number should not matter. It arbitrary scale however I do believe that when you give a number in a review it should reflect your thoughts.

    Bryan your review of a game is not reflecting your thoughts on the air. Honestly, listening to you guys on the radio. I personally feel like I’m getting 2 reviews.

    To sum up it sounds like.Game suffers from major tech issues but its freaking great. 9.5 out of 10.

    Not putting you guys down, but just wanted to give my thoughts on your review process

    Hey Jushin,

    No offense taken, and I actually like it when people write messages like this because it helps us make a show that you guys want to listen to.

    Yeah.. that ‘We Dare’.. ummm…

    There should be a mini game where you have to insert the ‘Wii-mote’ into an onscreen ring in n’ out… complete with vibrations!

    NOW THERE’S YOUR GAME!!!! Oh Gawd.. imagine the Youtube videos!!! XD

    ok.. i’ll stop.

    Hey Ed,

    Why do I have the feeling that everyone one of those youtube videos would also have the Gorillaz’s song DARE playing in the background?
