Morning Cup o’ Music

Don’t ever discount The Cardigans as a group just because of their Swedish roots. Many people wee ready to forget about them after the song ‘Lovefool’, that put them on the map. Most people never got into the album Gran Turismo, which was produced to the Nth degree and remains one of my top 100 […]

You Should Be Playing…

You Should Be Playing…

Brütal Legend and Need for Speed: Shift. Both games have their demos out today. While I’m more interested in seeing what NfS:S can do, I know that many of the MWN guys have chubs for Brütal Legend and have that on their ‘must have’ list for 2009.

I Totally Wanted GT PSP (Note the Past Tense)

I Totally Wanted GT PSP (Note the Past Tense)

I was a complete lock for picking up GT PSP when it comes out in a few weeks, until I found out that they’ve included Jay Leno’s voice in the game. Now, I’m not so sure that I want the palette-swaped-skunk haired ex-host of The Tonight Show to be invading my game. Yeah I know […]

GT5 Has Car Damage, PSP Won’t

GT5 Has Car Damage, PSP Won’t

It’s about damn time that you can mess your cars up in Gran Turismo 5 when it comes out (who the hell knows when that’ll be). While it’s nice to know that ramming into a wall at top speed will finally do more than just stop you dead in your tracks, I can only hope […]

New Gran Turismo Screens (Thanks IGN!)

New Gran Turismo Screens (Thanks IGN!)

The title says it all, enjoy seeing the pics without all the stupid ads. I personally think that this game looks great, but it really does make me wonder what the hell has taken Polyphony Digital this long…I remember them teasing GTPSP months before the system even came out…this was YEARS ago. I just might […]
