Hey, we love anything Mario Kart related. Here’s a cool video of scenes from Death Race with a Mario Kart soundtrack playing in the background and some opportune sound effects. Who knew there were so many similarities between the game and the movie? We think we like this version better than the original.

How to Import Rock Band Songs into Rock Band 2 with Export Key (PS3)

Rock Band

If you own Rock Band 2, you may be keenly interested knowing how to import Rock Band songs into Rock Band 2 so that you can effectively double the number of songs to play. We personally find the original Rock Band songs a little more “accessible,” meaning there are more songs in the original that are familiar than in the sequel so if you just jumped straight into Rock Band 2, so do yourself a favor and import the original game songs. The trick is having a Rock Band 1 game disc available and buying something called an export key from the PSN (PlayStation Network) store. The process isn’t clearly documented anywhere, and game forums telling you “just get the export key” are vague and mysterious so we’re documenting the step by step instructions for PS3 with screenshots on how to import Rock Band songs into Rock Band 2.

Street Fighter 3 – The Worst Street Fighter Ever

Minor Rant!

Street Fighter 3 was released and promptly became a huge commercial failure. Capcom wasn’t even going to put Ken or Ryu in it to begin with. Why did they even call the game Street Fighter? I mean it would have been perfectly fine to just slap another name on it and call it a day. I propose from now on, we call it: “F’ing Assbackwards Game Sucks”, FAGS for short. FAGS is just a crappy Game with Ken and Ryu, no wonder it never really amounted for anything.

Cast of retarded characters:

Ibuki = Little kid trying to go to college and ninja about.
Elena = Little kid from an underprivileged village.
Makoto = Little kid to take over Sakura’s stalker job.
Necro = Mutated pedo with a little kid sidekick/wife. He can also generate electricity.
Yun = Little kid busy being a twin and saving China or something.
Yang = Little kid busy being a twin and saving China or something.
Urien = ??? He can change the color of his skin and shoot energy, supernatural enough for me.
Oro = Centuries old one armed man.
Dudley = Vigilante hell bent on getting his daddy’s car back.

DS-Lite Out, and DSi In!

According to Nintendo UK general manager David Yarnton, the company will most likely phase out the DS Lite handheld if the upcoming DSi ‘thrives.’

Yarnton would not commit the company to any such plans, but did note that if enough buyers purchased the updated handheld, the DS Lite would most likely be discontinued, just like its fatter brother, the original DS, was.

“We’ll let the market decide,” he said. “We expect some people will upgrade, but we also anticipate that we’ll win over people who were still undecided on DS — the extra features will help convince them. There’s an extra incentive.”

The DSi is slated for an April 3rd release date in Europe followed by a North American release two days later.

The system will cost $169.99 USD in North America and will cost around GBP 149 in Europe, both 50 dollar premiums over the current model, the DS Lite.

StarCraft Running on PS3

/* Filed under How-To, Linux, PS3, Video Games, Windows    */

Think this is impressive? Want to play StarCraft on your PS3 as well? It’s definitely possible. The requirements? You need to take advantage of your PS3′s little known capability to run Linux. Linux you ask? Yes, because that’s the only way to run Windows. Since StarCraft came out way back in the day when Windows 95 was king, that’s all you need to install on top of Linux through an emulation layer. Fortunately, the PS3 has enough horsepower to run Windows 95, even via software emulation, so StarCraft is actually playable. Just imagine it, playing StarCraft on your big screen TV! Read more »

Guerrilla striked a deal with gamespot that gave them exclusive Killzone 2 demos to give out to those who preordered the game.  The rest of the people who did not preorder the game will have to wait until release date (2/26).  The only way for those in the America to play the demo early is to make a PSN account that belongs to a  different region.  Simply go to the UK PSN page and make an UK account.  Log into your UK account on the PS3, and the Killzone 2 demo should be on the download list.  Enjoy!
