Hello, I’m field reporter Xbox King, and I have a very shocking story to share with you.
Only a few weeks ago a very interesting set of NPD numbers were released. What makes the September NPDs so interesting is the fact that the PS3 actually sold more than the Wii, and don’t get me started on the Xbox 360!!!
Xbox 360: 352,600
A lot of PS3 fans are really taking this to heart, here’s what some PS3 fans think about The PS3 beating the Xbox 360 and Wii.
“Well, it’s about time!” — said Ploogle.
“Happy I guess, good to know that more and more people are getting to play some of the great PS3 exclusives.” — said Cam Dog.
“I think that it’s awesome that the PS3 is finally getting the love it deserves.” — said Weclock
“It’s quite really really awesome” — said Mariano Alpha
As you can see, these PS3 fanboys are really loving it! I’m not really fond of the whole thing but whatever, it’s just one month I suppose, Xbox 360 will win next month.

According to a recent press release by EA, their new game Brutal Legend, featuring Jack Black is expected to get its first set of DLC this November. The DLC, entitled the Tears Of The Hextadon Map Pack will give Brutal Legend players two new multiplayer maps to mess around in.
With the description taken from the press release: the first map, Circle of Tears, will feature “Vile waters have carved a rough-hewn circular battlefield into a forsaken land that players must circumvent to destroy their opponent.” In the second map, Death’s Fjord, “Players will find themselves on an icy mountain pass with a dense cluster of fans that lie below, waiting to be harvested by those brave enough to capture them without cover from enemy attack.”
The map pack is set for release on the Xbox for November 3rd for 400 MS points. And as an added bonus, players who purchase the map pack will receive a free axe, the Blade of Ormagöden. If you are looking for more information on this downloadable content, be sure to check out the press release for more information. If you are interested, be sure to head over to the Xbox Live Marketplace on November 3rd to queue the map pack for download.
Before you start, I’d like to point you Chris’ AWESOME review. To avoid repeating things and thus being extremely lame and boring, you can check out his review to get the low down. I was the second guinea pig of this experiment and have had some similar findings along with some sleepless nights. Having fresh breath and the energy to be up all night long does have it’s advantages. Read the rest of this entry »
About two weeks ago Kiki contacted me and inquired if I’d like to try out some samples of an “energy product” and post up a review for BTG. Of course I agreed, I’m a caffeine addict. I love my coffee and sodas, and without the occasional Red Bull or Monster in the morning at work I’d be drowsy at my desk and dead to the world.
A few days later in the mail I received a package direct from Vroom Foods, Inc. On the outside of the packaging, in big bold letters, exclaimed that the parcel contained “SERIOUSLY CAFFEINATED!® Contents”. Prior to this review I had Read the rest of this entry »
That is correct, Gearbox’s first person shooter and RPG game has been released today in the US. Now the question that I raise is are you going to buy it? Now let me give you a few highlights of why I will be picking this game up today:
1. According to Gearbox, the weapon count is over 17 million
2. The open world gameplay
3. The replay value
Now there are many more reasons to be picking up this game, but those are the three that really stick out for me. Now today is one of the few days that I am going to cut my post a little short, but that is because I will be playing Borderlands as much as I can today. Also, if you pick up the game too, be sure to send me an invite for co-op! Also, if you are not yet for sure about this game, be sure to check out the review over at IGN!

Today young girls everywhere can experience the joys and agony of being a teenage girl in love, lust, and hate without ever leaving their home or having any interaction with a member of the human race as VIVA MEDIA releases My Boyfriend for the PC.
Heralded as being an adventure game (for girls only!) the game encourages girls to imagine they are at a luxurious island resort with no ‘rents and just your BFF to keep you in line (or perhaps to encourage you to do just one more body shot). Ha ha.. just kidding about the body shots, there isn’t any alcohol involved, I don’t think…
But as every good girl knows, you must WIN the heart of the guy in order to MAKE him their b-friend. I am thinking there must be a lot of falsehoods, bra-stuffing, giggling, and having your BFF cheat with him behing your back, to set in the realism of this game. Otherwise it would just be LAME. Check out the press release below for more info on the game and all the system req’s.
<3 KK – SWAK!! =^.^=
