Playgasm Changes

March 17th, 2007 . by Josh

Although at this time updates are still slow, we're working on that though. We would like to announce we have a new forum open. The forum is open to all fans of video games, but we ask you just read our forum rules and expect changes in the forum as we are still in the process of configuring it.

Slow With Updates

February 26th, 2007 . by Josh

We here at Playgasm would like to apologize for the slow amount of updates as of late. Things have been crazy in our personal lives which keeps us from working on here.

As of now we will continue to work on the site when we can. We hope in the future we can continue to bring more news to the masses as we did before.

Thanks for reading, and we'll try to get back up to speed. 

Bioware presents: Jack Bauer Effect

February 21st, 2007 . by joshtest

JBSpaceLooks like Bioware is setting some high goals indeed for Mass Effect.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm totally looking forward to this game, and now that the goals have been set to achieve a storyline unlike any other, well, makes me want it even more. BioWare's Ray Muzyka has a few choice words in an interview regarding the game.

Muzyka calls it "Jack Bauer in space."

"You have complex moral choices
to make. You're out to save the galaxy. You're going to have to do
things that don't seem like they're good to do that."

He also mentions the one achievement they wish to accomplish in the game, moving dialogue, without the dialogue. Muzyka explains that eyes and motion are much more powerful tools to convey words than words themselves, and he wishes to reproduce that in Mass Effect.

Sounds kinky. Due in May.

The Nightly Play: Mega Man Intros 1/3

February 20th, 2007 . by Josh

Now you ask, why would I want to watch the intro to several Mega Man games? I'll tell you why, because it's fucking Mega Man! Any other character I probably wouldn't care, but we all love Mega Man, and those who don't just say they don't to make me mad!

Anywho, the first intros sound is somewhat screwed up, but you get the idea from there. Plus the Mega Man series has some fantastic video game music in it, so enjoy.

In case you're wondering, yes there are more intros compilation videos, I just didn't want to post them all. 

EA Buying 2k Sports?

February 19th, 2007 . by Josh

Dear [insert higher power here], don't let this happen! 2k Sports at least for me has become my refuge from crappy sports titles that EA releases. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way, though 2k doesn't put out a football title at this time, their hockey games still destroy EA's attempt at one.

With all the lawsuits and stock issues surrounding father company Take-Two is this the perfect time for EA to step in and purchase their sports division? Apparently so. Though no real details of a possible purchase have come out, the most we've seen is analyst giving information, which can generally be taken with a grain of salt.

But still, EA stay away from my hockey series! Keep releasing $60 roster updates under the Madden football name.

Another Zombie Game

February 16th, 2007 . by Josh

There has been a lot of zombie love in the air. Capcom made Dead Rising, plenty of PC based zombie mods coming out and now Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders creator Hideo Kojima wants to make a zombie game.  In a interview with Edge Magazine the man had to say this:

The zombie idea I have is a bit different…Imagine a large town where
half the inhabitants are zombies. Users would subscribe, get inside the
town and get bitten. At that stage they become undead and can't control
their character – all they can do is modify the camera angles… They'd
see their character attacking humans and have to pay just to watch!
The only way they could end it is by opening another account,
hunting themselves down and killing themselves. Of course, the problem
is that your second character can get bitten as well

Although I'm not quite sold on the part where you can't control your zombie character, I think that would be pretty cool. Imagine getting the chance to blend in with the pack of undead, then sneak around and bite a player in the face.

The Nightly Play: Double Dragon Live Action

Collegehumor was running some Street Fighter videos about what happens to them when they grow up.  This is that, only with DD.

Note the goodness.

Picard Does FFXII Ads For PAL

February 15th, 2007 . by jb

PICARDI don't come up with the excuses to post these pictures, they just come to me…

For the upcoming release of FFXII in PAL territories, Patrick Stewart has been selected to do the voice overs for the commercials.

In addition to Mr. Picard's voice, the people of London get a midnight launch event with the executive producer and director of the game.  The event will hand out such goodies as Moogles and soundtracks to the first 100 purchasers, and a contest for best FF-related costume.

Of course, the important part to note about this entire article is the fact that Mr. Picard was involved, and that my friend, is great news.
