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 »





A Message From Luke!

25 08 2008

So this definitely isn’t the Gamer Lounge’s longest or, for that matter, best episode and I don’t want to sully our reputation. So what do I do? Put out “A Message from Luke!” 😀 As you can probably tell from the title, I’m alone in this episode as well. However, that does not mean it’s a waste of your time! I cover Assassin’s Creed, Castle Crashers, Fighting Games, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Knights of the Old Republic, and Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War!

Timed Buttons Presses Unleashed!

15 08 2008

As you may know, I am super excited about the upcoming Star Wars game The Force Unleashed. However, after hearing today that to kill bosses you need to successfully complete a series of timed button presses, I’m not so sure anymore. If this is true, hopefully it isn’t a make or break deal. If I have to start the whole level over again because I didn’t hit one button right, (download the Bourne Conspiracy demo if you want to experience that! 🙂 ) that would suck!

Apparently the boss fights are relatively slow going as well. I don’t mind this so much though considering in the movies the fights were always long and drawn out as well. But again, the button pressing sounds stupid. I guess I would have to try it first before I could really say anything, but the thought of bringing down a giant rancor with my upgraded force lightning sounds way cooler to me!

On a final note Xbox Magazine rated it a 7.5, which isn’t great, but still pretty good.  We shall see I guess.

Actually, on another even more final note, they OXM gave Castle Crashers an 8.5!  Nice!  For once this issue has reviews super early!  Now if only the demos weren’t always a few months old…





#11 – The Gamer Lounge Episode – Touchy Pirates!

13 08 2008

Arrh maities! In this episode we talk about pirating, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on the iPod touch/iPhone, Tropic Thunder, Dr. Horrible, Firefly, DVD release dates, and, as always, so much more!  Unfortunately it was cut short because I had a family reunion I had to head off to, and I had run out of hard drive space.  Both at the same time no less!

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.
