The Guild: Expansion Time

The Guild season 3 is here!  The show is as good as always, but the distribution is not so good.

Distribution Issues

The Guild is now distributed via the Xbox Live store and MSN Video site.  They did this for season 2 also.

My problem with both means is that they do not offer the ability to subscribe to the series, so fans have to check back often to see if a new episode is out.  I wish the process was easier.  Hopefully, Microsoft is working on this problem.

Expansion Time

This is a great episode!  It sets up a rivalry between our favorite Guild and a group of evil line cutters.  Since I haven't seen a lot of publicity about it, and the surprise made me jump out of my chair shouting, "Yes!"  So I will not spoil it for you.  Let me just say, I cannot wait to see the rest of the season.

If you need to catch up with the series, you can watch seasons 1 and 2 at Watch the Guild.com.

Shadow Complex fans hate gay people

First off, I have to say that I am getting tired of SyFy site winking at bigotry.

Known Bigot Orson Scott Card has released a never game called Shadow Complex.  200,000 people either didn't know or didn't care that this bigot was behind the game and purchased it!

SyFy's Fidgit turned this into a joke... and people like me are just getting tired of fighting this fight.

Homophobia is one of the last acceptable biases in our culture.  Honestly, I am out of breath on this topic for now.  I will just say it again:

STOP supporting bigots like Orson Scott Card and those who pay him.  Maybe I should cancel my Xbox live Gold Account...

Rumor: Battlefront 3 Video Leaked?

Rumor: Leaked Star Wars Battlefront 3 Gameplay Footage [Kotaku]

I really want to see Battlefront 3 hit the shelves, and after watching this footage which promises the game for the XBox 360, PS3, and PC, I want to play it all the more.

But there is one tiny hitch in the plan…  Free Radical, the company making this game, is on the auction block.  Hopefully, someone will buy up Free Radical, or at least the code and developers for this game.  If not, this may be the best Star Wars game you never play.

Mark Hamill is The Joker, Batman: Arkham Asylum

batman_arkham_asylumThe video game Batman: Arkham Asylum will have Mark Hamil as the voice of The Joker.  I'm so excited about this news.  Mark Hamil's Joker is one of the best jokers ever!!! Mark Hamil was the Joker in the 1990's Batman - The Animated Series television show.  I wonder if they will put in Harley Quinn too.  With his contribution this game will rock even more!!!!

Star Wars Stocking Stuffer

51rFg2TDj1L._SL210_ This is probably the most self post I have ever made, but everyone seems to have this on their blog today, and I have to say, I hope I find one under the tree. My mother gave me the Pacman plug in game last year and I love it. There is nothing like playing Pacman with an real joystick and not a series of direction buttons or an analogue stick. I do think the promotional copy is a bit over the top though:

Do you love Star Wars and Video Games? Want to play games on your TV, but don't have an Xbox or a Playstation? This may be just what you need. Star Wars TV Games: Classic Trilogy Edition features 4 games from the classic Star Wars Trilogy, which, by the way, is coming to DVD in its original format this September. But back on the topic of this great video game, you'll get 4 adventures: Assault on Hoth, Red Leader, Battle of Endor, and Lightsaber Duel. Requires 4 'AA' batteries (Amazon).

... really... this $12 plug in is going to be as good as an Xbox or a Playstation... That just makes me laugh, but I bet it will be as fun as Pacman. I hope I find this in my stocking.
