Game Review: Guitar Hero – Metallica


Let’s put aside the Napster thing, the questionable quality of their latest release, the baffling attitude towards their fans, and the emotional breakdowns.

Whether you like it or not, Metallica is a pretty big deal.

Here’s my review of Guitar Hero: Metallica.

XBox 360 Achievement List: Hannah Montana – The Movie

It’s a short list… blessedly short.

Two Hannah Montana posts in one day. What’s wrong with me?

PS3 Trophy List: Hannah Montana – The Movie

hannaplatI’m hesitant to post this…

Perhaps the game should have been called ‘Hannah Montana: The Game Matt Won’t Be Reviewing Under Any Circumstances’.

Apparently there’s singing… and horses… and hoedowns. And I’m sure a whole bunch of other stuff I don’t understand.

Seriously, if you’re picking this game up for Trophies, I think an intervention is in order.

If you’re a 12 year old, and you (gulp) like this kind of thing, the List is inside.

Ready! Fire! Aim! Sony Lowers Price Of PS2!


On Monday, Sony let everyone know that they were going to make a ‘big announcement’ on Tuesday. I guess that’s a ‘pre-announcement’ announcement.

The big news? The Playstation 2 has dropped to $99!

Yeah, I’m underwhelmed too. It’s not that big of a deal… it’s hardware from the last console cycle, and let’s face it, you probably already own one.

Not that I’m going to tell anyone what price point works best for their product, but when EVERYONE seems to be pushing for a price cut on the PS3, and you announce that you’re going to make a big announcement, what conclusion do you think everyone is going to jump to?

Yep, it’s a Public Relations gaffe… again.

I’m not privy to Sony’s internal financial numbers, so I can’t say a PS3 price cut would be possible at this point (and it annoys me that a lot of people seems to think they are SCEA’s CFO). What I DO know is that this is hardly worthy of a ‘special announcement’, and it makes your PR firm look out of touch.

Like, basement-dwelling-nerd-takes-his-imaginary-friend-to-dinner out of touch.

Some free advice: Next time, maybe just do it… don’t make a big deal out of nothing.

Home Video Review: Zack And Miri Make A Porno


Kevin Smith’s films have always spoken to my generation. Something about the blending of taboo, social commentary, and pop-culture references that cater to people growing up in the eighties seems to click.

As Mr. Smith has matured, so have his films and his audience. While some may argue that ‘Jersey Girl’ didn’t play to his strong points, and spent too much time dwelling on realizations of relationships, parenthood, and responsibility… the film was still very much aimed at an audience that is now facing those very same life events. It was the first of his works to move away from the relative comfort of his familiar set of characters and settings.

‘Zack and Miri’ once again steps outside of the ‘Askew-niverse’, the land of Jay and Silent Bob, but explores some very familiar territory for his fans.
