PS3 Trophy List: Naughty Bear

NBboxWe’ve got a review copy of this game floating around the B.O.M.B. Shelter, but so far it hasn’t gotten a lot of play time.

Has the development cycle been so long that the game has stagnated, been passed by other franchises in design and performance, that it will release with a whimper and a groan?

The New Droid X From Motorola

motorola-droid-x-01I just happened to walk into Best Buy and decided to go see if they had a Droid X in. To my surprise they said yes so I said gimmie.

I personally have been trying to decide if I wanted the Droid X or the HTC Incredible. In the end it came down to screen size and pure power. From what I looked into the Droid X it had what I wanted.
