Finally, a Burn Zombie Burn! Review

Everyone is a fan of Zombies, and some people are in the Scott Sharkey fan club. What you get when you combine the two?

A review of Burn Zombie Burn! over at 1up:

Burn Zombie Burn gets straight to the damn point. There are zombies. You burn the holy screaming hell out of them. Then, if you’re so inclined, you run into the burning mess of deadguys holding a lawnmower out in front of you. You can share this experience with your peers, if you’re so inclined.

Nice to know if the game is any good, I just wish things had worked out so the review would have gone up before the game.

GDC 09: 1up Meetup

Just a few pictures from the 1UP meetup today at the Metreon’s ailing Food Court. A good time was had by all and I enjoyed meeting the 1up Supercrew. Highlights were meeting the Sports Anomoly’s David “The Funisher” Ellis, Ray “I don’t have a funny nickname” Barnholt”, Nick “Fellow Beardo” Suttner, and more of those awesome folks.

Many thanks to Intern Chris for putting it together! After the break witness the special surprise in the Muni station.

Metal Wolf Intermission

After the break witness Metal Wolf Chaos, the finest XBox 1 exclusive, and bizarrely never released here. I played this one during my time as a microsoft tester. I wish they would bring it out on the XBox originals function of the XBL marketplace, at least.

TimeDoctor Approved Podcasts of the Week 05/09/08

This week my favorite podcasts were The 1UP Show (after the break) and the Joystiq podcast:

The Joystiq Podcast crew hit their 49th episode this week, Chris Grant, Ludwig Kietzmann and Justin McElroy, are covering random games and lots of GTA4, as expected. The best part is their Philadelphian Vocal Pronunciation class.  This link is their RSS feed, this one is the direct MP3, and this one is the iTunes subscription. In a previous episode they even answered a question from Y.T. about the Korean game industry.

The 1UP Show is covering Valkyrja of the Battlefield, Boom Blox, and Metal Gear Online. I really dug their coverage and am now more interested in all three games. This link is their RSS feed, and this one will subscribe you in iTunes.
