Besides Killing Floor, I played a bit of The Witcher over the weekend. If you're curious about the game now is the perfect time. It's on sale on Steam, and the sequel is being released early next year. Though the game is three years old, it's still one of the best western rpgs on the PC. Here are some quick impressions on the game:

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.
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!
This is great! Play Super Mario Bros as a bunch of other NES characters. Yo...JD where's your game?

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
Thanks to Steam's Summer sale, we got to play Killing Floor over the weekend. It's a multi player survival game where up to six players roam around a map killing wave after wave of zombies.
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.

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.
No game is perfect. Well maybe except for Super Mario Brothers 3. In the last two posts I've been praising Tera but it's not without its shortcomings.
Who hasn't gotten completely lost in Minecraft? You can build a compass, but that's no replacement for a map.

A wise old man once said randoms best come on Tuesdays. What? As a bonus, when looking over the rough draft for this post, here is how wonderhowto described it:
Just some Friday funnies.
April NPD Video Game Sales Every month around the second thursday the sales chart for video games and consoles are released for the previous month. They are released by the NPD group, the main company tracking video games sales in the US.

Someone made a Mario Kart type level with the Starcraft editor. lol poor Thor, 3 laps in and he's still a quarter into the first one. Great music too.
L4D2: The Port Finale The Third Chapter in The Passing is the Port Finale. It's similar to the Dead Center finale, where you have to gather gas cans spread throughout the map and fuel the generator to lower the bridge.
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.
Yogi Bear in 3D Dot Heroes God I loved that cartoon. Who doesn't like that silly bear and his innocent child companion Boo Boo. It was so nice to see Yogi raise the young Boo Boo by himself in an unmarked cave in the privacy of the forest.

Story, Characters, and Structure Note:
The first images for the hotly anticipated Dragon Age 2 have come out, courtesy of Game Informer. The developer, Bioware, went on record earlier saying that the sequel will have better graphics and art direction than the first one.
oh god at the ending lol.

Bring back a live bounty without chases. There is always a bandit pursuit whenever you try to bring in a live bounty in Red Dead Redemption. If you kill the initial wave of bandits, more appear seconds later. They can kill your horse or your bounty, and if you can't outrun them, it's going to be a very messy return.

My father recently suffered a stroke. Now in Neuro Rehab at Cedars Sinai, he is enduring daily physical therapy, recreational therapy and occupational therapy sessions to help improve his balance, mobility and fine motor skills. I was initially worried about how I could incorporate his current PT regime in his daily life after he's discharged. That was until I saw the devices he used in the PT gym. Despite their "medical device" designations, the high tech stuff is remarkably similar to what ...

hmm.. Maybe not a real game. But he's officially in Madden '11 (skip to the 2nd minute): You can model your Mass Effect character after Obama (Nobel Prize not included):
