I’m back with another addition of The Exclaiming Gamer Podcast.  This week, I talk about a few of the features that have gone into the site and what content is going to be going up later in the week.  I also get into some news about BioShock 2 and pine for gratuitous sex and violence in Dante’s Inferno.  As always, I wrap up with the new release calender and e-mails.  Enjoy the much improved podcast at the link below.

Impression: 1 vs. 100 Beta – Now With Prizes

Posted in Impression with tags , , , , , , on July 10, 2009 by exclaiminggamer

I just finished up playing a bit of 1 vs. 100 and I have to say that I am very impressed with how much fun that game can be.  Even though very small amounts of money are involved, there is something to be said for the rush I felt when I won as a member of the mob.  It didn’t matter that the prize was only a copy of the original Worms from XBLA.  I won something for answering a few general knowledge trivia questions and it felt great!
I do wonder if Microsoft is going to be able to stretch this out over multiple seasons.  I could see the game getting a little stale if it isn’t put into a rotation with a couple of other types of game shows.

Whatever Microsoft’s plans are, they sure have a good start with 1 vs. 100.  When they were postings statistics for the rounds, there appeared to be a ton of people playing.  In any event, I had a really great time tonight and I wish you all luck in your personal quests for prizes!

Between the release of the Wii Motion Plus and the recent announcements from Sony and Microsoft about their camera based motion controls, I feel as if the three console makers believe that innovation means getting rid of the traditional handheld controller. This thought was spurned on the other day, when I opened my web browser only to see a headline that basically stated that controllers were obsolete relics of a Neolithic video game world. Well I am here to proudly say that the only way they are taking my controller from me is if they pry it from my cold, dead hands! Continue reading
