It still a couple days before ‘Doom 3′, which was brought to Xbox by Vicarious Visions ( http://www.vvisions.com/games/details.cfm?ID=60 ) hits stores. I have to say VV did a great job it is an awesome conversion! I’m going to be a few minutes away from their offices for the rest of the weekend I wonder if they need someone for IT type stuff.
There is only one problem that I found during the course of playing. You can see that here: http://www.angstridden.net/images/doom3_xbox.avi (You need the xvid codec to view it, go to http://www.doom9.org/ and check the downloads section for the codec packs.) The video is a bit jerky. I didn’t check it before I deleted the source video. My bad. Anyway, I thought we were pass the times of enemies getting stuck on walls?Another game I got my hands on even though it has been getting less then perfect reviews… well just take a look at gamestats ( http://www.gamestats.com/objects/606/606221/ ) you’ll see what I mean… ‘Red Ninja’ interesting premise. But in the end it’s poorly executed. The game looks ok and there is a fair share of panty shots (oh yay just what I wanted no game play and more panties).
I’ll probably never beat the game because it is just to much of a headache to play. They really should have held back the release of this game to tweak the controls and the enemy AI just a bit. One more week and they would have had a winner!Oh well, I’m out… Going to Albany for the weekend. I’ll be back Tuesday. Now I hope ‘Sin City’ ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0401792/ ) is as good as those people over at IMDB say it is … 8.7/10 (1,234 votes).

So, other then my car leaking gas all over Southern New York and Northern New Jersey last week ended ok. I got very drunk on St. Pat’s and then made some money the next day (which went toward getting the car worked on) *sigh* whatever…
Well, I am over the whole ‘Republic Commando’ thing… That game is wack! I’ve moved on to ‘Cold Fear’ ( http://www.coldfeargame.com ) made by a kick ass game studio called ‘Darkworks’. I’m not really one for survival horror genre but damn this game is cool! I actually jumped a couple of times. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out do so!
During the search for a new game I have come across an old favorite repackaged in the form of ‘Tony Hawks Underground 2′ ( http://www.activision.com/microsite/thug2/thug.html )… What a disappointment that was. I guess I should have picked it up right when it first came out. Maybe I thought it is bad because my Tony Hawk skills are complete gone for some reason, it’s like I’ve never played before. Oh, well, I guess I’ll keep at it over the next couple of weeks and maybe I’ll squeeze in enough time to make some progress.Another gem that I’ve discovered somewhat after the fact (being out for two months or so already) is ‘Mercenaries’ ( http://www.lucasarts.com/games/mercenaries/main.html ). It’s nice to run around blowing stuff up. Oh and I guess the graphics and game play are cool too… But, you get to blow stuff up!
Alright, well I have some work to do and I’ve used up my few hours video game playing time window…

Before I go away for the weekend I just wanted to say…
'Cube: Zero' looks pretty good…
And 'Republic Commando' is actually a good game!
Oh and the count down to St. Pats day is on…

Well, it looks like I was right… Darkfader has brought his Nintendo DS homepage back to life… ( http://www.darkfader.net/ds/ )
And that’s all for now I’m really tired!
