Having trouble with your iPhone 4 voice reception? You're not alone. Thankfully Apple has made it clear with press release after press release that it's not their fault, it's ours. And they're right! Apple can only do so much; if people keep messing up so badly they're going to have to buckle under the preassure and release a fully working product! Let's hope that never happens, and with that in mind we at Load Save have found the top 10 ways on how to fix your mistakes!
Mafia 2 is coming August 24th to the PC, PS3, and 360. From early reports it looks like the only version worth getting is on the PC. Between consoles, the 360 version is less 'crappy'. Besides the video, look at the pictures below to determine the picture quality:
Check out this review of Red Dead Redemption from GameSpot.
Well, the site does say video games and 'technology'. Looking for information on the Sprint Evo HTC 4G being released this Friday, I found this overview of the phone and something I didn't expect: humor.
The 360 Spring Arcade bundle is $149 at Amazon and Ebgames! This includes Viva Pinata and Banjo Kazooie.
Minecraft is the most basic and barren open sandbox building game. There are a limited number of materials and recipes to craft. But with these few building blocks, people have been able to creatively build some amazing structures and cities. There is a physical limitation, but the beauty of the game is turning that limitation into a strength.
Kick Ass Review Part 3: Conclusions [Spoiler Alert! Plot points are discussed from the movie and comic in this section!]
Kiss Ass Game First Impressions Review of the game next week. Here are some quick impressions of the game and the first level
What separates Metro 2033 from other FPS games? Life. There are underground towns, markets, children, music, and so much background chatter than sometimes you can't single out a particular conversation.
Wow, this story, written by Becky, is riveting. I know we've got some StarCraft 2 fans in here. I'm glad that Eve seems really stoked to be playing StarCraft 2, and I think a lot of the grief she's getting is from jealous players who are mad that they didn't get selected for a pro-gaming teamE.
These impressions are coming from a person completely new to the Final Fantasy Online world. Never played FF 11 or the FF 14 Beta. This game is not friendly to new people. The account creation is a Kafka like experience in things that don't make sense. For the game itself, the beginning tutorial is awful and does not really teach you the basics of combat. Here is a small breakdown of my opinions, with the good points first so that they don't get overshadowed by the negatives.
Final Fantasy 14 the MMO is now live. The special edition priced at $75 enables people to play eight days earlier than people getting the regular edition, which comes out on September 30th. Mine arrived yesterday and here are some pictures of what's inside the special edition version of the game:
What won't they think of?
It's been almost a century since we've last seen Kid Icarus start in his own game! The result of Project Sora, Kid Icarus will be released for the Nintendo 3DS!

The order was given months ago: Build me a royal garden.
Is that House? Built in Minecraft? Well, time to cross out one more item off my bucket list! As inspiration for this week's Minecraft-themed Tuesday Giveaway (enter here to win an awesome Minecraft Pickaxe!), I present a roundup of amazing things found in Minecraft.
Have you ever wanted to ride a rollercoaster while listening to Lady Gaga? Or have the Star Wars theme auto-play when you enter your house? You can with Minecraft. Search Youtube for a popular song + Minecraft, and chances are there will be a video for it!
Nope, it’s not the McDonalds menu, but close enough. Jim Blackhurst has mapped 11 million deaths onto a 3-dimensional point cloud for video game Just Cause 2. The result is an amazing virtual heat map of a world where every white dot represents a death on impact: The millions of deaths formulate a detailed outline of major structures and roads in the game, visually mapping "extractions" at every square inch. In most traditional games, this would not be possible—players more often than not sta...
Minecraft may seem like a game for just hardcore gamers and computer nerds, but it's totally not. It can hook anyone and everyone, from casual gamers to online addicts to total newbies—it can even turn its users into serial killers. And now, Notch and his Mojang crew have made it possible for more people in the world to become Minecraft addicts who'll never leave their servers. A console version for the Xbox 360 will be available this winter, but for now you can all enjoy the cubed sandbox wo...
Kick Ass Game Review Part 1: Background & Voice Talent There are three parties involved in bringing you The Kick Ass Game:
Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Video Game was released on Tuesday August 10th for the PS3 (Download only, $9.99). It will be released for the Xbox 360 on August 25th for 800 imaginary points. We spent a few hours yesterday on co-op and single player and here are our initial impressions.
A bounty hunt is simple: Go to the wanted board in your ranch or city and look for a wanted poster.
Bit of a troll bait on Kinect, but funny nonetheless.
Finished Act 1 (3 total) of Red Dead Redemption and it was disappointing. The act is divided into five important people who you have to do missions for in order to progress the story. Around five missions per person on average. Only Bonnie and the Marshall's story missions felt tied to the storyline. Dickens, Seth, and Irish's missions felt like they added nothing but padding to the game. Add that nothing that you do in the game affects the world around and it's like you never existed in the ...
Or is it mash up? Click on the image for a larger picture. There are some characters I don't know but so far the games listed:
There are no spoilers in this writing, read without worry. Finished Episode 3 of Alan Wake yesterday, impressed by different reasons. I originally bought the game for the possibility of great story, dialogue, and voice acting. That part of the game has been disappointing. What has stood out from playing episodes 1 to 3 is the level design and game play.
Kick Ass Review Part 2: Gameplay and Design In the game, you can play as Kick Ass, Hit Girl, or Big Daddy. Each charater has a light and heavy attack that can be strung together into small combos. Each character also has three special attacks assigned to the Square, Triangle, and Circle buttons requiring different amounts of MP. For bosses, each character has two finishing moves.Kick Ass
Who knows if this is going to be any good? In my experience, these combo consoles that claim to be able to play your Atari and NES games are eventually doomed to failure, as you're stuck hunting down Duck Hunt cartridges and then having to stick them in the freezer when they eventually freeze on-screen.
Fancy yourself a game developer? Submit your napkin doodles here, and maybe you can even make one of the ideas shown.
Here is the introduction sequence for the game, it's one of the best for this generation: The arrival of the player is mirrored by the arrival of the riverboat, as if the player is getting off the boat to a new location just like the characters. The piano music at the beginning subtly tries to attach the player's emotions into the scene opening sequences. There is a shot of a car being lifted, a quick sign that the times are changing but our hero is still dressed in the past.
I love Chucks. I've been wearing the same black pair I've had since 8th grade. I also love Chuck collaborations, and the latest one is pretty exciting. Converse and Nintendo have come together to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario, and the result is a match made in Mario heaven.
Spending five days with the game is enough to know it's not to my liking. Is it a horrible MMO? Yes, yes it is. There are better Free to Play MMOs launched years ago that are better than this. As a fan of the Final Fantasy series (I am currently playing and liking Final Fantasy 13), this MMO is so bad that at some point I couldn't justify the awful environment, game play, and interface.
My friend worked on this video (he's Legolas!) and it's really fun. A geek/gamer girl anthem with cameos from Seth Green, Katee Sakhoff and Stan Lee.
You can get Alien Swarm for free on Steam starting today. Alien Swarm is a 4 person co-op adventure with an updated Source engine and the ability to create custom levels. Think of this as a top view Left 4 Dead or Killing Floor, but with aliens. Too bad they are not zombie aliens, but it's a free game so we can't complain.
Man, I am a sucker for free stuff. This is the first volume of the Portal 2 soundtrack, and you can also download free ringtones. How awesome is that?
The Earthworm Jim HD remake comes out this week in Xbox Live, and next month on PSN ( the 360 has a 1 month exclusive on the game). Includes new levels and up to four player co-op beside the shiny new graphics. Personally I only beat a few levels in the Snes version way back in the 90's. The co-op sounds fun bud I'd rather have an HD Battletoads to be honest.
All right women are you sick of playing games like GTA where you kill hookers? In Hey Baby you get to kill all the men who've been harassing you on the streets!
Hey, have you ever wished you could design your own video games? With WarioWare D.I.Y. you can! Great for first-timers who want to see what they can come up with. Apparently it comes with its own image and music editor, and its own graphical scripting language.
