Video’s may not come every week but at least once a month.

To those who dont want to watch, or simply cant stomach our mugs, the audio version will not stop.

Mini Reviews

Metal Slug 3 – (xbox) 2D Side scrolling action game – Like R-type final from a few episodes ago this game is dated. This style of game is definatley a dying one. THis game is crazy hard, one hit and your are dead. The stages are really a memory test, the enemies appear in the same place everytime. WIth only 5 levels and a few unlockables this game does of some replay factors but not enough to keep goin for long. A good bargin bin find though

Rogue Solider (ps2) – 3rd Person shooter game. YOu play as “Rogue” a genetic super soldier batteling for Nu-earth. You are part of a super army that gets elimnated making you an army of one. The action never really gets overwelming and is broken up by a ton of short cut scenes/ instructional moments. Ther are some minor stealth elements but not very many. This game brings a couple new elements you can place your main weapon as a sentry gun then circle around the enemy and interactive equipment. Through a series of accidents you closest friends are killed and there “soul” ships are installed in different equipment, one in your gun another in your back pack and a third in your helmet. Not a great game but not terrible either. This title is mediocre at best.
