Microsoft Canada X’09 Roundup

WOW! What a show today from the team over at Microsoft Canada. Putting the Xbox CA community and press in to Gamer paradise. Hosted this year at This is London we were treated to all the latest titles for the upcoming fall season. Here are my Hits and misses: DJ Hero Hands On – If I had to pick one word to describe this game – Amazing – would be my choice. Clearly the standout winner for me this year. The Turn table controller just feels god in your hand – it’s not over complicated and it was easy to pick up. Two tracks three buttons (right track, center sound effects and the left track), a moving game pad and the left right fade. It just felt comfortable. Who will love this game? Guitar hero fans and DJs. Best Part… 11 Tracks with Daft Punk as playable characters. TorontoThumbs Kicking it – DJ table and Guitar Tony Hawk Ride Hands On – Jump on the board and go. Yeah it’s actually a skate board without wheels. I first hit the time trial and found that unlike riding a bike getting on a skate board (even a fake one) is not like riding a bike. Racing down hill collecting time clock bonuses and penalties. Then is was off to teh half pipe – defiantly better for me than time trials....

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up

Did someone say Pizza? Donnie, Mikey, Leo and Raph are back and they are ready to smash everything in site. But they are not alone this time they have a few new friends tagging along; Zen like Master Splinter, the nosey reporter April O’neil and the urban jock Casey Jones. A number of other classic TMNT characters will also be found through out the game – the Shredder and Foot Clan member Karai will be seen at several points through your story. From a playability mode this game relies heavily on the strength of the multi-player matches, as the story mode was incredibly short and barely lasted the length of a television episode. Good thing you can play through with all 6 of your primary characters. The controls are simple and the make good use of the Wii mote and the Nunchuk. However The real fun begins with a 4 person battle in a 2D world. Battle your friend locally or take to the Wii network for some online smashing shenanigans. Graphically this game is fairly standard for the Wii. Black and White Cut scenes (shown above) and bright colourful settings for each battle provide a number of great back drops which include multi-tear settings and destructible objects (in some cases the environment is more dangerous than your opponents. Watch out for falling power-ups they are as good for...

Left 4 Dead: Crash Course Available but …

This morning the new DLC for Left 4 Dead called Crash Course became available on Xbox live. Only 1 problem: They’re charging too much for it. The DLC is listed as 800MS Points but should only cost 560MS Points. MS is aware of the error and is working to fix – Major Nelson has posted on his Twitter account that the fix may take a few hours to come down the pipelines and to wait before purchasing it. I really wish I didn’t have school tonight – Looks like I’ll have to play tomorrow. Until then, anyone whose had the chance to play should post their comments so I can live vicariously though you. ***Update*** Some reports are filtering in that it’s completely fixed now but for me it hasn’t changed as of yet. Anyone else? ***Supremely wicked Awesome Update*** The price has been adjusted. Play on...
