Here at PNG, we just don’t know how to let our obsession with celebrity created or backed video games go. We ranted and raved about 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, and we have yet to fully begin our massive marketing push for Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena. Much like Mr. Cent, Vin’s got your back when it comes to punching and stabbing your friends online. Check out 1up’s article here about how he let Starbreeze know what’s up.
As my “internet sifter” has been most unkind with grids news, you’ll have to settle for some digital grids information. 1Up has a post up giving the low down on Hasbro Family Game Night that hit Xbox Live on Wednesday with a ballsy catch. The shell can be downloaded for free, but each of the four games it launched with cost $10 a piece (800 MS points). It seems to have struck a nerve with our fellow bloggers out there as there as it seems a bit much to be charging for Yahtzee. However, if these games support online play, it’s way better than spending the $5 – $8 on their board or card counter parts just to have it sit in a closet most of the time.
Kotaku has some numbers out for Resident Evil 5’s sales numbers out in Europe over the weekend. Apparently Bono is going to be pissed.
Speaking of numbers and on a completely unrelated note, I think Duke Nukem Forever is coming out this year.
