See Your Xbox LIVE Account All Grown Up

25 05 2009

Were you under 18 when you made your LIVE account? I certainly was, and a few months ago I turned 18. Today I tried to download an M rated demo thinking, “Hey, Xbox should be nice enough to change the settings for me”, but, the truth is, they are instead very mean little critters. After digging around on the internet, I found how to upgrade your “child” account into an “adult” account.

wrathofsolace

At long last we have an episode again!  In this episode we talk about the delay, a car accident, Wrath of the Lich King, Quantum of Solace, Left4Dead, the iTunes app store, Thanksgiving festivities, and so much more!

In the show, we shared a few links with you that would allow you to keep tabs on what we’re doing.  They will be found below.  (But hey, you’ve already found my main site!  🙂 )

Castle Crashers Review Delayed

5 09 2008

So like a good little reviewer, I knew I should finish the game before I finialized my thoughts about it. However, I am royally getting my ass handed to me in the Lava World level of the game! I have an idea now of how to get past it, but a save before you fight the dragon would sure be nice! 🙂

On another note, I’m actually going to see Tropic Thunder tonight. I’ll finally have a movie to talk about!

Update: I finally got past lava world!  I’ve finished the ice world as well, so I’m about done with the game.  Hopefully I can finish by tomorrow or the day after and get a review up!





Please Unleash Me Now… – Demo Roundup!

3 09 2008

Finally, a batch of demos worth playing is on Xbox LIVE. By that I mean…not sports games! 🙂 First off, before we get any further, let me just say Castle Crashers is a must play. I’m going to write a review for that soon, but even the demo can show you how sweet the game is. It’s hard to believe that puppy is only an Arcade game.

So we’ve heard about it for a year, I’ve put posts about it on the blog, and talked about it on the podcast. Finally, The Force Unleashed demo is here! Except…I’m not that impressed. Read the rest of this entry »





GL Breaking News!

1 08 2008

Well first off, there is no Gamer Lounge this week!  Sorry about that, but both Larry and I had some things going on, and, most importantly, we wanted our first live show to be something truly memorable!  So the general thought was “If we’re going to have a live show, we should probably tell people where to see it!”  🙂

So here’s the low down, at 6:30 PM Central time on Tuesday, August 5th, you can go right here, http://www.ustream.tv/channel/the-gamer-lounge, and see our show broadcasting live.  If you have any news, comments, or thoughts while we’re recording, you can just type them into the chatroom.  What does this allow?  It allows you guys to customize the show!  If you aren’t happy with the topics we’ve currently been covering, or if you think we need help getting off the topic of World of Warcraft, then here’s your chance to chime in.

(If you’d prefer to listen to that and my thoughts on Space Siege, here’s a link to the .MP3)

#9 – The Gamer Lounge Episode – Why So Serious, Human?

22 07 2008

The Dark Knight is finally here! So, uhh…naturally we talk about it! 🙂 That’s far from all however. Larry shows us some of his favorite iPhone/iPod touch applications, I talk about Too Human, and so much more!

#4 – The Gamer Lounge – Incredible World of Hulk Assassins!

18 06 2008

If you were wondering why the new show was a few hours late it’s because we had some Skype problems again! Gahk! 😥 However, I finally got the show edited!

In this wonderful episode Larry is back and we talk about tons of topics. Some of the major ones are The Incredible Hulk, World of Warcraft, Assassins Creed, iPhone, College and even a possible live show!

Microsoft Avatars?

16 06 2008

So APPARENTLY, Gamer Pictures are going to be ditched and Avatars are going to be the new kids on the block.  I’m not quite sure what I think of this.  The amount of customization you can do looks cool, but I’m not sure everyone will like this style.  I can tell you that I’m digging the guy in the white tux with the eye patch!





Firefox 3 hates me!

7 06 2008

After coming back from Kung Fu Panda, I decided to try out the new Firefox 3 beta.  I was horribly disappointed!  Sure the new look was decent, but I’m still a fan of the old.  The worst problem was any website I visited would randomly change it’s zoom!  One minute I could barely read the text, and the next a paragraph filled up half my monitor.  Then there was the small fact of no more spell check.  Crap!  How can I survive without spell check?  🙂  Anyway, after awhile I decided to revert back to 2.0.  However, that caused Firefox to crash endlessly, so in the end I had to uninstall Firefox, re-download the new version, then re-install it.  Bah!  It sounds promising though and I hope the good people of Mozilla make this puppy the best it can be!

By the way, I’m currently looking into getting a mixer which will greatly help with recording the podcast.  However, for future reference, would anyone be interested in having live Skype calls to the show and being a part of the podcast?  If so leave a message here or shoot an email to gamerloungepodcast@gmail.com





Yet Another Star Wars Character in Soulcalibur

7 06 2008

Well, it looks like the main character from The Force Unleashed is now joining Yoda and Darth Vader as yet another Star Wars character in Soulcalibur 4. I believe it is still true that the 360 version will get Yoda and the PS3 will get Vader. Will this “secret apprentice” be offered to both consoles then? Or will they make us pay extra from Xbox LIVE to unlock him? While this Soulcaliber game looks cool, I think this new addition should have been left out and saved for The Force Unleashed. Surely they don’t need to have Star Wars characters to be successful? Or do they? There has already been tons of advertisements for The Force Unleashed and something tells me within a week before it comes out, everyone on the planet will have heard of it.

Anyway, you can check out more images and a trailer of the game HERE.
