but dont worry it will be up soon. We will be turning the site off this Wednesday while we move from hostgator to godaddy. For all of you that have been tracking us for awhile, you know why ;-). So Wednesday when you come here and wonder why the site is down, that is why.
We expect the transition to go smooth and quick! If you have bookmarked pages, they may still work. Just note that all comments and forum posts made AFTER midnight TUE. (6-19-2007) may not get transfered to the new server. Once we are on the new server, we’ll announce it!
During the next few days, our email’s may not work either. We are aware of the contest going on that requires you to send us an email to participate, so please bare with us as we re-establish our emails. We’ll announce that when it’s fixed too.

Maybe it was poor marketing or bad beta participant selections? Or perhaps bad timing with all the focus on the successful Halo 3 Beta and the highly anticipated Forza 2? Regardless of the reason, the 360 now has a title that will be sadly unheeded. Shadowrun is by far the freshest idea to hit the FPS scene with compelling features that expand game-play like never before. Yet the word on the street is stay clear of this one. And I ask, why? Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like the majority of the badmouthers haven’t even played the the darn game yet.
Well I played it, and here’s what I gotta say about it.
Hardcore FPS fans must have this game in their collection. Shadowrun is not for casual gamers. With over 20 different weapon, magic and tech gadgets equippable in countless combinations among four character roles, you can create your perfect FPS personality. Weather it’s a 3 foot tall dwarf with a Rocket Launcher and Shotgun or a monstrous giant Troll with a ninja sword, the possibilities seem endless.
Former Halo fans have every reason to pick up this game. Did you hate having to re-spawn just to get slaughtered by a dual wielding jackass over and over? Well it’s not gonna happen here after mastering the unique game-play. If the only thing you like about Halo 2 multiplayer is the Party System then you are in for a treat! ‘Cause it’s back, just like you remember, with a few extra features Bungie ignored (Like voting to boot griefers out of your party).
OK, so it retails for a full 60 bucks and only returns you 9 maps and no Story mode (there is still a single player mode). The developers claim that there is no story mode because they set all their efforts to balance the multi-player. Well… it shows. All I’m asking you to do is try this game before the badmouth bandwagon picks you up. So go rent it, borrow it, there’s even a demo available on the Marketplace; just play it.
Anyone who cringes at the thought of yet another FPS release should not overlook Shadowrun. You may just discover that it can be an exciting and intense First Person Shooter game that you and your buddies can have good times with. Expect a thorough review from XBLR soon. -Rust.

Last year it was Penguins that topped the Box Office for the kiddies. This year it’s Surfing. (oh and Surfing with Penguins) I have to admit it seems as if Hollywood as run out of ideas. There is Pirates3, Shrek the Third, Oceans 13, and Now the Fantastic 4-2.
The latest Superhero flic (or as I like to call it: Stan Lee’s 401 k plan) is like a Beach Boys album. It’s Seaonal and Nastalgic. It is also very entertaining. The first film had to introduce the heroes and their powers. That sometimes works: Batman Begins. But more often it doesn’t: Superman Returns. With introductions out of the way, the 4 are back for more. More action, More Powers, and More effects. All of which make no sense on the surface but come together to create a great Summer Popcorn Hit.
On the other TIDE we have Surfs Up. Think Lords of Dogtown in CGI. It’s your basic underdog story with some comical fare and Napolean Dynomite. The voice acting is superb (expecially Bridges reprising his “Big Lebowski” schtic). However the appeal for kids is only feathers deep. There isn’t much for them to get into other than an occasional “Pee” joke.
There is plenty to see at your local Cineplex this June. So wax up those boards and catch the big one to the silver screen. But if you want my opinion; 4 heads are better than 1 cold Turkey. Or is he a Rooster?

It looks like this week the winner of the voting is Rainbow Six: Vegas. If you would like to join our awesome community of gamers just go here in our forums for the info of how to join us. We have a XBL Radio gaming night every Saturday night at 7pm pacific and 10pm eastern. Now I had one person ask me why Rainbow Six every week, so I figured I would address is here, we leave the voting up to you guys, the gamers. Its simple, whatever gets the most votes we will START off playing. That does not mean we will not play other things as well, but that just says we will start off playing that. Like tomorrow night, we will start off in R6V but we will probably get a little time in GOW or GRAW2 as well. So join us Saturday in our gaming night, it will be an awesome time with a bunch of causal gamers, (we are not hardcore, just a bunch of people trying to have a fun time). And mid next week, be sure to visit our forum to vote on next weeks game, especially if R6V isn’t your thing (I’m voting on R6V and GRAW2 next week).
