I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Smile! You're on Candid Controller

Posted on Friday, May 20 @ 09:01:10 Eastern by


Nintendo has done some wacky shit in the past. R.O.B. the robot for the NES. The Virtual Boy. The Wii-mote. But this new console -- Cafe, Stream, Wii 2, pee-pee, whatever the hell they're calling it -- is shaping up to be the most "out there" addition yet.

Touchscreens in the controller? Check. Motion functionality? Check. And now, a new report claims that the controllers will feature a front-facing camera that will snap pics of you while you game.

Yay! Now all three consoles from each major manufacturer have camera accessories that can take candid photos of me in my boxers while I get lazy on the sofa -- if I'm wearing boxers at all. Does anyone really want this functionality? Granted, Nintendo is pretty clever at finding ways to apply odd things to gaming. I don't doubt that they will find a way, yet again.

I'm more worried about the cost of this thing.. not the console, but the controller. I'm expecting the console to launch with a price point around $399-299. But if all the buzz about these controllers is true -- the touchscreen, camera, etc. -- they're going to be the real bank-breaker, costing roughly...


One... million... dollars!
