Introducing NGP Gamer

A couple days ago I was a little bored and thinking about fansites. I wondered, “are there any NGP/PSP2 targeted fan sites yet?” In my search I ran across one, but it literally had not been updated since the day after the systems original reveal and exists to be google-bait. I thought to myself, “I can do much better” so I set about building my own NGP fansite. You can now see the fruits of those labors at NGP.GamerBlahhhg.com. You might wonder if this is all some cynical attempt to get in on the ground floor, become the defacto NGP[…]

Judge for yourself: It’s hard to tell from that promo shot, but in game Hermione’s expressions are far more reminiscent of Bonnie’s portrayal than any other incarnation of the character. In any case, the game is out now and pretty cool. The PC version is only $30 and plays great with a gamepad. You will also be able to see A Very Potter Sequel[…]

E3 2010: Nintendo’s Looping Like Groundhog Day! A Graphical Analysis

I didn’t bother to wake up and watch Nintendo’s E3 press conference live last week, and while I watched a replay later that day, nothing I saw caught my interest too much. So while at the time I didn’t feel compelled to write up an analysis, Eurogamer today pulled a quote from an interview Satoru Iwata gave to the BBC that really demands some kind of response.
