OK folks, three Gameshark items if you're interested:
First up, we've got the Jumping the Shark Podcast, show #30. I'm a guest on it, and I go head-to-head with the venerated Tom Chick about METRO 2033 and HALF-LIFE 2. It's a great discussion, we really had a lot of fun with it. But be warned. I think I say things like "national identity" in it, and I make the crazy suggestion that game critics are in a position to educate people that there is more to games than just having fun.
Second is a review of CASTLEVANIA: HARMONY OF DESPAIR. Meh. I gave it a C. I was very, very disappointed in the game. It's weird, because everytime I get on Live, half my friends are playing it. But I just can't be bothered with it, what a missed opportunity to do something extraordinary.
Third is my review of SNIPER: GHOST WARRIOR. Don't buy this game. It stinks.
Abner has my BLAZBLUE: CONTINUUM SHIFT article on his desk too, it may show up soon. Tomorrow on Cracked LCD- PHANTOM LEADER.
