What's New Papa Chew


Not Much, Lady Touch! If you are confused then I refuse to apologize. This is essentially just a little gaming "news" update with a few items of interest and awesomeness, wrapped by a Sicilian man who doesn't know left from right. You may be asking yourself, "WTF is this guy talking about?" Let me answer with this, "Who gives a shitaki mushroom!? I am awesome."

A Tiger Woods 2009 demo has shown up on XBL and a NHL 2K9 demo is supposed to be up on PSN, but is still M.I.A as of this writing. A sequel to Overlord has been announced for the 360/PS3/PC as well as two other games in that "universe" for the Wii and DS. Did you hear that? That was the sound of no one caring, except for the fact the developer's studio is called "Climax Studios" (I guess they already got there). The Japanese have been going googoo-gaga apeshit crazy for Tales of Vesperia, making it the fastest selling X360 game in Japan. Parents fear games more than alcohol and porn, but I guess that makes sense when the media calls a game like Mass Effect interactive porn...because that's exactly what I got out of that game. Note the obvious sarcasm as I begin to divulge into a few topics that interest me quite heavily. Oh yea, a new Lara Croft model has been chosen. Hurray?


The LittleBigPlanet "Box Art" has been revealed for the UK version (whether it will be the exact same for the US I do not know). I feel really mixed about this cover. I sort of like it, but at the same time there is something about it that just doesn't sit well in my tum tum (that means tummy). I don't know if it's just too busy, but something about it bugs me. Almost like a beetle bugging an Italian girl in Italy, but I digress...


Those retards a few weeks ago saying Castle Crashers would cost an oddly chosen 1800MS points can now eat their own asses, I mean words (yea, words). It has been made official that Castle Crasher will cost 1200MS points! And yes, I think that is a fine and fair price indeedy. If you don't believe me just click this link to see the truth that your Glaucoma kept you from seeing this whole time.

Below is a video of the intro for Mega Man 9. I can't explain the awesome nostalgic feeling that this video tickles my "old man" bones with, but it really is delightful. I am really getting pumped for this game and hope it lives up to the hype that has been building in mind. If you're an old geezer (I may not technically be "old", but I sure feel old) like myself you may get tickled in the same way, but the only way you'll know is if you click play and just "do it". Don't think, just do it. Also, you can find out some info about a few bosses (as well as screens) here.

A Lancer Replica...for $140

That is obviously a lot of money, but you can get a copy of Gears of War 2 for free when you buy it (or add an extra $10 and get the LE). So it really just ends up being another one of those legendary editions for $140/150. I have no idea who would want to pay for something like this. It is huge and not practical at all...unless you plan on making some low budget Gears film that is sure to suck the big one (and by big one I mean penis), I would not recommend this for you. I mean, honestly, where the hell would you put this thing.

"Trigger Activates Motorized "Chainsaw" Sound and Vibration Feature"

That just sounds like every Gears fan's wet dream! Not to mention it comes with a removable clip and uses the finest of C batteries (not included). What you plan to do with that clip should stay between you and the clip, please do not tell me a single thing...

Marvel vs. Capcom 3? = Please Do It

Apparently we may be seeing a new Marvel vs. Capcom game and we may not have to wait as long as we might think. At comic-con Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President of Production, was asked whether we might ever see another MvC game and he said, "Yes. And maybe sooner than you think."

It seems like a no-brainer to make a new MvC, but there are plenty of stupid people out there...All I can say is that I hope this news ends up turning out true and I hope the game comes out soon (like tomorrow soon). Linkage to official post down below.

New Marvel vs Capcom?

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2: Delicious Sausage

I was a huge fan of the original and played the hell out of it. It had a great cast of characters and you can't beat online co-op, but it wasn't all rainbows and lollipops. One of my biggest issues with the game was that the characters didn't seem as unique and different as they should be. Playing as Spider-Man instead of The Hulk should make a huge difference, but that wasn't the case. This trailer has me excited because it seems that each character will control like you would expect. The Hulk will smash and destroy things while Spider-Man will be more agile. The trailer also showed some of the new co-op moves and they look to be pretty cool and the kind of co-op maneuvers you would expect to see.

I loved the original and here's to hoping the sequel kicks ass...

*SPECIAL NOTE*

 
The person who recently left comments under the names "wouldn't you like to kno." and "you still dont know?"...I really don't know who you are...a little help?

Betas Cost You Money on the PS3


First the Socom: Confrontation beta and now Resistance 2. I have heard that the first beta keys will go to those who pre-order the game and the rest go to Qore a week or two later. If that's true it makes this "deal" even more shitty and pathetic. Pay for Qore and you get the privilege to join in on a beta after it's already been running for a few weeks. Hooray. Paying for betas on any console pisses me off because the point of a beta is to help the developers test the game out and find any bugs or glitches while you're doing it. Why should we have to pay to help out a company make their game better? Makes no sense, but c'est la vie. Betas are not supposed to be glorified early exclusive demos, but that seems to be the way things are headed now...

This Qore Resistance 2 beta situation is horrible, but will it stop? Absolutely not...and that's because people are going to buy the hell out of the third episode just to get into the beta. Sony will see this and say to themselves, "We know they really want this, but let's make them pay for it! We are geniuses!" Sony doesn't really have to worry too much because people still seem to have Sony up on this god-like pedestal and see no wrong from the company.
