Brock’s Ready to Beat Some Redcoats

Well, what do you know. I’m all ready to settle in and do some math homework (because nothing says fun quite like that), when a veritable swamp of new information is released pertaining to the already hyped-beyond-belief Assassin’s Creed III. Among these bits of information is the identity of the voice actor for new lead character Connor Rahtonhaketon. Judging from the title, I’m sure you see where I’m going with this….

Hey Guys, It’s Your Captain!

It’s your server guy that never posts. Just have a couple updates I’d like to share!First off, a lot of you wonder who I am or what I’ve been up to. I don’t have a lot of time to put towards video gaming these days, but lately I’ve taken up the handle of Music Journalist over at my personal blog, In fact, just recently, I sent up a new recurring feature over there, "This Week In Playlists," where I talk about recent discoveries and addictions. Included in this week’s roundup, is the music video for We Come Together by Goldfish, stylized as an 8-bit video game and full of references to several major Nintendo series.Secondly, we just underwent a MASSIVE server overhaul the past few days. For everybody that has been wondering what’s been going on with the intermittent downtime, that was me. Things should be sorted out in that department for now though.See you around, kiddos!…

GAME isn’t Stocking Mario Party 9, Mass Effect 3

For quite some time, GAME (and its offshoot, GameStation) was one of the premier "high street" video game specialist retailers in Britain, but if you’ve been paying any attention to the company’s fortunes as of late, you know that it seems like that’s about to come to an end. First came the news that GAME wouldn’t be carrying The Last Story – a bit of a blow, considering the game’s pedigree, but at least marginally understandable. JRPGs aren’t the all-conquering behemoths they once were, even if they’re as hyped up as Sakaguchi’s latest jam has been. It seems the cuts go a little deeper than that. The big Nintendo release of the season, Mario Party 9, which is a guaranteed hit across the casual/hardcore spectrum, will also not be carried by GAME. But the real story is that GAME won’t be carrying any EA or Ubisoft games, and that they’ve stopped taking pre-orders for the impending blockbuster release of Mass Effect 3.
