YES folks! Come check out our new home HERE!!! So, WELCOME!…and remember, Mi casa es su casa.
This week saw X10 hit San Francisco and along with it, the showcasing of the 360′s heavy hitters in the form of exclusives like Alan Wake, Crackdown 2 and Halo: Reach.

Sony of Canada recently gave a demo of their latest 3d technology in Toronto! Press and public gathered around Sony’s new XPR-LX900 series BRAVIA Television. Many had smiles as all were surprisingly impressed with what they saw inside their dark 3D glasses. The rest of the world will have to wait till Summer 2010 when the these new 3DTVs finally hit store shelves.
This week’s update is highlighted by a spattering of Sony exclusive demos, most importantly with the greatly anticipated (at least on my part) Heavy Rain for the PS3. The PSP rounds out the demos with SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 and the Echochrome spinoff echoshift.
Other than that, there are a bunch of new dynamic themes featuring PSN exclusive titles Flower (celebrating it’s one year birthday), Trash Panic and Wipeout HD. There also price drops and special offer galore with Burnout Paradise Complete Edition for $20, Valkyria Chronicles DLC pack for $10, Trine for $10, and the much adored Patapon 2 for $15 (permanent).
As for Playstation Home, be sure to check out the newly re-skinned Singstar space in spirit of Valentines, along with the new Warhawk personal space and a SOCOM item giveaway at the Playstation Theatre.
So forget about your Valentine this weekend…spend some time where your heart really is….on video games (sad). Sean C.

This review is sort of a double-feature showcasing the chops of Nintendo’s Wii Shop channel, which up until this point I had only had minor experience with. By “minor” I mean I used it to hoard a bunch of best-loved and half-forgotten games from my childhood for easy access. Chances are that if you have a penchant for “older” games, the Wii Shop Channel is for you; after all, many of your classic favourites are probably Nintendo made, leftover from a time where Nintendo dominated the gaming scene. One of the games I’ll be discussing is from that generation, but not from a classic Nintendo console. The second is a more recent entry from the Wiiware section with a little more depth and ties to everyone’s favourite collectable monster fad.
