Hello folks, how are we doing on this fine, lazy Sunday afternoon? It's time for the first edition of:
CHUCKWAGON NEWS ROUNDUP - 17. May. 2009
EA's BATTLEFIELD HEROES isn't quite ready for prime time just yet - but, did you know that anyone can hop in and try out this fun, fast-paced, cartoony war game right now!? Head over to the official site and get in on the action. The game plays right in your browser and the download is quick and painless. If you want to crack National skulls along with me - look for "McGoo" of the Royal Army.
You probably saw this one coming a mile away - tickets for BlizzCon 2009, which went on sale just yesterday - have ALREADY sold out. Don't fret though, you still have a chance to grab some hands-on time with STARCRAFT II and DIABLO III when a new batch of BlizzCon tickets go on sale May 30th. Better be quick!
If you're reading this blog you're probably a fan of 80s games like MS PACMAN and JOUST. Did you know that you can pick up these titles and more for less than $3.00 at Amazon? 'Tis true! Kotaku says so. Keep in mind these are the Xbox Live versions of the classics, but most of them are faithful recreations. I have GALAGA and DIG DUG for the X360 and both are divine.
S'all for now. I gotta run - but I'll be back. Go play games!
