Good times with TNA

I have been on quite the wrestling binge as of late. I have been playing Fire Pro Wrestling Returns like it's my job, I watched WWE Raw (live) for the first time in months, and I can't get enough of this video showcasing the new TNA impact! game being released this fall.

Samoa Joe and AJ Styles lend their expert commentary skills to this virtual match-up between the two (they aren't the ones playing). While Styles takes most of the beating in the ring, he dishes out some pretty funny comments throughout the exhibition.

Keep reading to see the video.

While this isn't an astonishingly realistic wrestling simulator, it just looks like a lot of fun and is a nice alternative to the yearly let's-update-like-EA Smackdown Vs. Raw series. Also, I wouldn't judge the game solely on this video. The people controlling the characters seem to use just a handful of moves. And is it me or does this game remind you of WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game?

Spore Creature Creator released, ridiculous amounts of fun

Last night I downloaded the trial version of Spore Creature Creator and have had a blast messing around in it. Yes, I only have two creatures created, but I have been tweaking them like crazy. Also, the more I see other people's creatures, the more I am thinking this isn't such a kid's game. Tomorrow, I will be sure to pick up the full version of the creature creator. In the meantime, take a look at my two creatures after the jump.


A double-mouthed monster that waddles like a duck. It likes to play tug o' war with itself, leaving it with no friends but itself.

Experimented on by scientists and badly burned while escaping an erupting volcano, the Lava Elk in impervious to any form of fire. It looks out for the other animals in the forest and acts as a superhero to us humans.

The Finish Line: God of War (PS2)

Although I play a lot of games, I rarely finish them due to new ones coming out all the time. Back in the day I used to buy games, play them for about 15 minutes (if that), and throw them to the curb for either a new game or a steady favorite. So, as of right now, I am basking in the glory of beating God of War (only about three years late).

The ending left me a little disappointed. I mean I expected what happened, but the last scene just seemed anti-climatic.

Besides that, the story kept me intrigued during a few annoying sections of the game. One that comes to mind is the platforming before you head into The Architect's Tomb. For some reason I could not get a handle on my jumps, and I wound up being asked by the game if I wanted to try changing the difficulty to easy. Screw you, God of War.
