[Note: This too is a repost of an entry I did for my personal blog some years ago. One of the things I enjoyed working on the most during the time I was at EGM was the April Fools jokes. I grew up reading EGM and fondly remember things like the Simon Belmont in TMNT2: [...]
[NOTE: This is a repost of a blog entry from my old personal blog.] Originally posted June 26, 2004 — Now’s a good time to take a moment and talk about one of EGM’s mainstay characters — Sushi-X. While other people can probably tell this story better than I can from the beginning, I’ll take [...]
As a reader, I’m a James Mielke fan. When the guy is covering a game or a developer that he’s interested in, he generally does a fantastic job at it. He’s truly passionate about certain games, and it comes through wonderfully in his writing. I’ll even admit that he’s far better at covering the games [...]
In this episode of the Player One Podcast you will hear not one, not two, but FOUR people talking about the games they played this week. Once again it’s CJ, Phil and Gregs Sewart and Ford, discussing games such as: Fable II, Final Fantasy III DS, Half-Life/Half-Life 2, Guitar Hero World Tour, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, Gears of War 2 and The Maw.
In addition, in this episode we announce the opening of our real website at playeronepodcast.com and the return of the Game Club — which this time will be Banjo-Kazooie (N64). It’s also available on your Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft points. Share your comments with us via our site or voicemail line by Feb. 6 and we’ll read/play ‘em during the segment on the game in that week’s show.
It’s back—we’re doing another Game Club for Episode 120 (out Feb. 9), this time on Rare’s Nintendo 64 platformer, Banjo-Kazooie. Initially known by the codename “Dream,” this game copped a lot of Mario 64′s style, and whether or not it holds up as well as Mario 64 does to the test of time is up for debate. It was recently re-released for the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade, and it can be yours for 1200 Microsoft space bucks ($15, but who’s counting?).
You’ll have to forgive me as this post isn’t very game-centric. Still, it’s probably more interesting than Greg talking about racing games. Again. I feel pretty bad right now. I had been bugging CJ for a while about getting this blog up and running on our main page with the promise of writing all sorts [...]
As I write this, the green flag has just dropped on the Rolex 24 hour race at Daytona, and thus, on the 2009 racing season. I caught a few of these American Grand Am (or Le Mans, whichever) races last year, and the drivers usually put on a really good show. I’m going to make [...]
[NOTE: This is a repost of an entry I originally wrote for my personal blog, which is horribly outdated and is not even worth going to anymore (oh god, the layout...it's like I was blogging in 1998 and using Lynx to browse the Internets). I'm going to move those entries over here piece-by-piece and at [...]
My participation in the annual NHL tournament at the office was a success. A success in that I managed to make the playoffs and not make a total fool of myself. OK…so I didn’t make it past the first round. But I got into the post-season in fine style, with a game-winning goal in the [...]
The whole Netflix Instant Watch streaming on Xbox 360 thing got me thinking. What if Microsoft (or Sony, let’s not be too platform-biased here…but Microsoft’d probably be the company to do it) teamed up with XM/Sirius satellite radio, or leveraged their Zune Pass service and music libraries to basically provide you with streaming tunes or [...]
