Music Podcast 13: Demon's Souls

Back in 2009 my world was invaded by a black phantom. This black phantom was called Demon's Souls. A spiritual successor to King's Field which stood apart from all other games of it's kind. In part due to it's design, but mostly due to it's difficulty. Most people after playing this game seem to recall the old days of gaming; when you knew whatever you played was going to kick the crap out of you across the street.
I even reviewed Demon's Souls back then. I gave it a Buttered Toast which is basically a 2/3. Since then I've returned to playing it and as I stated in the musicast I'm 4 play-throughs in.
Anyway Please enjoy this weeks Musicast. Oh! Also visit preparetodie.com to pre-order Dark Souls which comes out October 4th.

Dues Ex: Human Revolution PS3 Review
Reviewer: EBGeer

“The game is set in 2027, 25 years before the first title, where corporations have extended their influence past the reach of global governments. The game follows Adam Jensen, the security chief for one of the world's most powerful human augmentation corporations, Sarif Industries. After a devastating attack on Sarif's headquarters, Adam is forced to undergo radical surgeries that fuse his body with mechanical augmentations, and he is embroiled in the search for those responsible for the attack.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deus_Ex:_Human_Revolution)

Disclaimer: As a lazy gamer, I ganked the above abstract from Wikipedia to save both time, and provide a plot description.

Prior to truly stepping into the game you get a taste of what’s going on with some synopsis and background of the story as well as a bit of training to learn out to maneuver your character Adam Jensen. I will first touch upon the things I enjoyed about the game because my negative viewpoint far outweighs the positive.

Ep 55: Nubble Double



What has been seen, can't be unseen. Nubbageddon is upon us and after waiting ever so patiently for the Nintendo Press Conference and TGS to give us more details on this ugly attachment, we give our thoughts on Nintendo's newest add on. As usual, Nintendo didn't say much about it and instead decided to focus on a megaton announcement for the 3DS. Monster Hunter Tri G and Monster Hunter 4 are confirmed. Ouch Vita. So listen up and let us know what you think of the Nubble Double.

As mentioned in the podcast we're asking for donations for our friend Mike who just got his house robbed. Even $1.00 would be appreciated. Let's get this man back on Fallout 3.


Also we wanted to give props to our friend Mr. Spastic and let you know about his new album release titled Lucid. We give you a taste on the podcast, but you should really check it for you self. It's free and spectacular. http://www.8bitpeoples.com/discography/by/mr_spastic

Nintendo 3DS Conference 2011 Live Blog. Prepare for horrible Japanese translations

This is probably a horrible idea and is a blog first for Who Burned My Toast, but with minutes to spare before the conference starts I am going to live blog the conference the best I can.

Prepare for misinformation and lots of horrible translations, since I don't know Japanese. So kick back and check up every so often to see how its going. Oh crap it's starting.

8:00 PM: Things start off with a skyward sword hi-res intro. Godd damn it someone needs to move the camera up. Half this carp is cut off! Hi-Res Cut scene and now Miyamoto is on stage with with sword and shield. Talking in Japanese.

8:04 PM: Four Swords Zelda, shows characters playing in all the different Zelda games in honor of Zeldas 25th. No release date given yet.

8:05 PM: Miyamoto is breaking out the wiimote with motion plus. Fears of E3 are running high. Will the demo go well this time? I don't think so. Don't do it Miyamoto San. Don't lose your honor!  So far it looks like Miyamoto isn't playing at all just mimicing different cut scenes and explaining in hand gestures. Is this a good sign?

8:08 PM: They are showing all the gameplay elements possible with Wii motion plus... holy shit just saw link in a mine cart and catching butterflies! Lots of environments being shown.

8:10 PM: Epic boss battle with link flying around a giant bird-fish thing. Bosses are huge in this game.

8:11 PM: Game Montage for 3DS games, Tekken, RE Revelations, Animal Crossing, Monster Hunter shown!

8:14 PM: Wii game line up until the Wii dies in Japan. It's already dead here. Nothing new here so far.

8:16 PM: Showing sales chart for consoles.. snore. Comparing Male Vs Female. A Pink 3DS Shown! No second nub here. Ladies Nintendo has you covered.

PAX 2011: Part 2 - The Hangover





Better late than never we always say. This is part 2 of our Pax Prime 2011 podcast series, technically Episode 54. We originally recorded the podcast live with two Destructoid community member's Eric and Thomas of 2drunkassholes@twitter.com after a long night of hard drinking and vomiting. It however was a train wreck of opinions and mom jokes. We will somehow figure out a way to get the good parts of that recording out to you in the near future. But lets forget about the past and talk about the future of the games we played on the last day of Pax.

We wrap things up and give away an XBox live avatar Retro City Rampage t-shirt and a discount code for Fangamer.net, so you can purchase awesome video game clothing and accessories. The games we talk about include; Heroes of Ruin, Jurassic Park, Street Fighter X Tekken, Retro City Ramapge, Aliens: Colonial Marines, SSX, Fire Fall, and BloodRayne. We hope you enjoy the show and thanks for listening.

Eyes on Aliens: Colonial Marines at Pax Prime

Are fan's going to get a game worthy of the Aliens name?

"Get away from her, you bitch!" is a quote from Aliens, one of my favorite 80's movies that haunted my childhood dreams for years. So it was a fantastic surprise for me to stumble across the Aliens: Colonial Marines booth at Pax Prime this year. I got my ass in gear, hustled into line, and awaited to be escorted into the large sliver like sardine can to get my first glimpse of the game in action with a guided tour from SEGA and Gearbox Software.

I was shuffled into a dark room with 19 other people, with a couple PCs, and two giant LCD screens. No cameras or pictures were allowed for this preview, so I am going to give you my best impressions of what Gearbox is trying to do with Aliens: Colonial Marines.
