The folks over at Sarcastic Gamer have been doing something pretty sweet the last few years. Instead of saving Princess Peach they save kids. They call it Extra Lifeand it’s a 24 hour gaming marathon. They’re in the middle of the third Extra Life event right now. As I type this they’re halfway through the 24 hours and have $203,618. ALL of this money will be going straight to the Children’s Miracle Network to help save sick kids. Do you want to be forever on my awesome list? Go and donate, even if you donate a $1. The more money the better. Also, If you visit that link, at the top of the site you’ll see an up to the second amount of money they sold so far. Thank you so much Extra Life supporters!
If you are like myself and completely hyped up for the release of The Force Unleashed II, the ultimate choice is up to you. You must choose carefully my Padawans. Join the Dark Side you can, but only you can decide your fate.

Our friends at NinjaBee have just announced that their spiritual successor to Cloning Clyde will be released on June 30th. The game was originally set to be released during the week of E3 on June 15th. I think the slight delay may be partially due to the buzz surrounding E3. It’s not a huge delay so relax, enjoy E3 and before you know it you’ll be saving the Ooganis and kicking Boolis ass.
If you read this and wonder what the hell I’m talking about then check this out.
Basically if you’re a fan of the newly appointed Xbox Arcade Hit Cloning Clyde then you’ll want to be sure to give this a look. It has nothing to do with Cloning Clyde in terms of story but it offers the quirky comedic action and unique gameplay that made Cloning Clyde the popular game it is.
In this game you’ll be helping other Oogani tribes uncover lost powers and tribal leaders in a mystical world in order to lead a revolt a ruler who is less than democratic. It’s up to you to lead the way and apparently eat a lot of things while you’re at it. The best news is that this will only cost 800 MSP. Change the date, keep the price…..that’s cool with me.
You can check out all the hype by following Ninjabee on twitter and Facebook. You can also dress your Avatar in some pretty cool NinjaBee stuff. Everything else can be found on the official NinjaBee website.

Did you enjoy being a complete badass with the Force in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed? If you played this game anything near to how I played it, you used ever power to the most destructive way imaginable. The whole “with great power, comes great responsibility” ideology was thrown out the window once I had the chance to be a Sith/Jedi.
Well, this fall The Force Unleashed II will be released and the Collectors Edition has some pretty sweet goods coming with it. The steelbook that comes with this edition looks mighty sexy. Click the linked image to the left to read more about what you’ll receive if you pick up the Collectors Edition.
I am not a true-blue Final Fantasy player, but I do enjoy playing it. I loved it when I played the MMO beta for FF XI (I think that is which number it was) see.. I can’t even be sure which number is the correct one, I would make a horrible FF fan-girl!
But.. I am seriously thinking about picking up this one for the DS. I think I could really get into playing it on the DS and not have it mess up my 360 playing time.
With FINAL FANTASY: THE 4 HEROES OF LIGHT, the FINAL FANTASY series is rendered anew as an epic storybook adventure by the creators of the FINAL FANTASY III and FINAL FANTASY IV Nintendo DS remakes. Players will enter a beautiful fairy-tale world featuring illustrations and character designs by acclaimed character designer Akihiko Yoshida (FINAL FANTASY III for DS, FINAL FANTASY XII).
